A day of simulpubs

Today it was back to work, with not one but two weekly simulpubs! The first one was Edens Zero, as usual, and the second one hasn't gone live yet, so we should probably not say what it is. But I think it's safe to say that it was a lot of fun to work on, and we look forward to doing more! There's been a little bit of discussion on the manga professionals' chat we go to about simulpubs and how they're the worst, but we like them well enough. The monthly ones can be a chore sometimes, but we like weeklies--they're just a fun little diversion that always brightens our week.

There was a...something...we read with Atsushi Ohkubo, where they asked him if it was hard doing a weekly manga (Fire Force) after having done monthly manga (Soul Eater), and he said that for him, it wasn't, because with a monthly series...oh darn, I don't remember. But basically he would lose momentum so it would be hard to get back into it every month, but with a weekly series, you just keep going and it's fine. I think it's a similar thing with us. With a weekly series, we have a reminder of what's going on every week, so we rarely have to stop and be like, "Uhhh, what was going on here?" I mean, there are still times when we pull up the files and go, "OH! Right, that was happening!" But it's much fresher, so we never have to try to remember the context.

We were also supposed to finish a first draft of Hatsu*Haru, but we didn't get anywhere close. We chapter! But we weren't expecting to have two simulpubs today (for some reason we thought one of the simulpubs would come later this week), and we actually were expecting to not finish our Hatsu*Haru draft today. We just would have liked to, is all. But not enough to have actually made it happen.

And that's pretty much it for today. Today I'm thankful for a fun new simulpub to work on, finishing both our simulpubs and still having time to start on Hatsu*Haru, being thiiiiis close to getting back on the review-writing wagon, the super cute picture our sister sent us of our niece reading to herself, and getting to work on Edens Zero.
