Nah, there's no reason to reply to the email, Mave.
I'm just glad you enjoyed it. I do feel like I've learned a lot since my last attempt at webmanga; people have really commented on how my skills have improved (they should have...looking back at SB, it makes me feel very bad...hahaha) I'm surprised anyone can learn anything from me, though, I always thought of myself as the amateur of the group, since I was such a newcomer to manga.
So many of you grew up with manga, and then came the 18-year-old who suddenly says "hey, I wanna draw that!"
Thanks to everyone else who's reading and commenting. Chapter 2 will be concluded shortly and the archive will be posted.
