The Webtoon is LIVE!
On the summer solstice, the Rose for Shurinai webcomic made the jump into webtoon format. I’m happy to make this change and look forward to the challenges and opportunities the vertical format brings! It’s readable on Tapas and Webtoon, so feel free to read and share it around to your heart’s content!
Starting the week of June 28th, Rose for Shurinai will update on Fridays, with possible pauses between Files (Seasons). I’ll do my best to minimize the wait!
