TENTEN APPRECIATION WEEK -  March 7th (Tuesday) - Scrolls

“The day Tenten brought her new big scroll was the same day Neji realized that she had changed a lot recently…”

@papabay​ will you participate in Tenten Apreciation Week in honour to her birthday? This my picture of Tenten is also dedicated to YOU, becouse you are my everlasting inspiration for NejiTen drawing! <3

A little question

Guys what would you prefer:
1. Faster updates but smaller pages
2. Bigger page sizes but the update takes longer

It’s about Hidoku.

Be x Boy has an ebook version available now. I ordered the magazine on march 7th and it’s still not here. So we bought the online version, that has been launched today, too.

Pro’s are, that we can update faster, because we’d have the magazine on the day it’s being released and our cleaner wouldn’t have to edit as much as she has to with the magazine scans. (And it’s three times cheaper.)

Con’s are, that the pages are way smaller.
I tested it, it looks good on phone and computer screen, but it’s not good for people who like to do edits and stuff.

I’m thinking about this all day. Hmph.
We’re gonna use the online version for ch 2 as a test run, but I would still like to know the opinion of the people who’ll read it.

So please let us know what you think.
Thank you :)
