I might have stretched the truth a bit in my latest Q&A response.
Yeah, it’s true that I considered a realistic style in the fetal stage of my comic, and yes I am very inspired by Meduka Meguca.
However, it was never once in my mind that my comic was cute. I did not actually intend it to look like that. I did not associate my style with “cute.” It was just “cartoon.” When people started saying that it was ‘cute,’ I was really confused. “It’s cute? It’s just a cartoony look.”
Eventually I just kind of rolled with it. “Yep, it’s a story about a cute girl.” I guess it just happened that way. I now kinda facetiously advertise it as such.
