Just having discovered Moresukine last week through screenhead.com, I feel a bit sad it's already over. I enjoyed reading those assignments and found the project most interesting. The art, of course, is top-notch - specially the layout and narrative flow. Guess you read a lot of Eisner, didn't you?

Thank you from everything. I never commented nor suggested anything, but your comics are wonderful, and I really love the feeling they leave lingering. It was a pleasure to follow Moresukine.

(By the way, I also had the problem with my friends page. Surprisingly, the last entry did show up on there...)

Sorry to see it end! I really enjoyed following your adventures every week. A brilliant, timely idea and beautifully executed--design, art, storytelling were all fantastic. And it sparked an interesting debate about web vs. print. :-) Thanks for sharing this with everyone.

If I may ask, do you have any future projects on the horizon?

Thank you for the stimulating discussions and this wonderful laudation.

Future projects. Well, I have these two neglected stepdaughters, "Ineinander" and "People Not Seen", and I will direct my attention towards those, I guess.

I'm not sure it would be all that interesting to continue the MORESUKINE concept from Berlin - but you're welcome to contradict me.

The thing is, in the long run it would be too exhausting to publish a weekly webcomic of this kind and still have a fulltime job besides. So I could only imagine the Kochalka way of "give me a dollar a month and I'll do webcomics until hell freezes over", and I'm afraid in this case I wouldn't have that many viewers anymore.

You're scaring me! I uploaded this last installment from Yamagata, but how the hell did you know?!

I thought the whole thing was very interesting and and entertaining read.

I find it funny that even though I've had this journal "friended" for some time, this is the first entry to actually appear on my livejournal friends page (I don't know why, some glitch or something). And of course, irony demands it be the last.

Kudos to you sir.

My God your still alive?? I thought the Fugu was the end of you...

I started following this about 2 months ago, and have enjoyed all the assignments you have done. I've always loved travelogues because they open your mind, and this one was no different. You have captured some of the essence of Japan in this work, not just the stereotypes. Hopefully people from all over the world, including Japan, will read this and open up to different cultures a little.
I'm sorry to see this end. I don't want it to end... My next assignment for you (should you choose to accept it) is to go to Cambodia and report from there.

Best of luck in the future.

You've summed up all I tried to achieve, and even more. I don't have the necessary distance to my work, but I wish you were right!

Sorry there, I'm heading for Berlin at the end of September. I can't help but admit it's not half as fascinating as Cambodia...

Thanks for all the kind words.

I really enjoyed reading your weekly missives from Japan; you captured the wonderful confusion of experiencing a different culture for the first time. Thank you for sharing it with us. It was sweet, and all too short.

Gee Whizzzz - tempus fugit... but what a pity! Once again for the last time: great stuff! It should be worth to yourself to publish in print, as you said in the interview: a comic is something you should be able to touch etc. And this "real" product - according to my inner eye - could be a very nice faksimile-kinda-thing.

But this question's answering can be waited for if you're back in Germany, huh? And at this point I wish you a very nice time on the countryside... see you in fall!

So long, grts t j,

Did I say comics have to be touched?! Is there an evil twin out there giving interviews?

No but you're right, a facsimile-Moleskine publication could definitely be interesting.

Thanks for everything!

I'm sorry to see Moresukine come to an end too, but feel really lucky to have been along for the ride. It was wonderful! Good luck with whatever interesting assignment or idea comes next.

I've looked forward to each installment over the last couple of months and I've never been disappointed with the artwork or the narration. Wonderful job, and thanks so much for this beautiful and unique perspective on Tokyo culture. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time there!

Every week I've obsessively checked anticipating what assignment you were assigned to. I'm abit sad it finished now, I was hoping it'll be a longer project. Nevertheless, a great blog. Brought alot of enjoyment and fun =)

Thank Goodness you guys didn't tell me while I was still drawing!
I mean, an obsessively anticipating readership that has never been disappointed before - what a nightmare!

But seriously: Thanks!
