Simone has moved into a shared house for the first time, with a pal from her university days. The reality is far from the grown-up, yet girly lifestyle she was imagining, as her housemates turn out to be Fujoshi: the ultimate female otakus! Updating on Tuedays.
Fujo Fujo! is written and illustrated by me, Sonia Leong. I work as a full-time Manga artist for various publishers (Tokyopop, Image, VIZ Media, Seven Stories, SelfMadeHero, Hachettes, Walker Books, Harper-Collins, Ilex, Quarto, and more).
I'm also the Company Secretary of Sweatdrop Studios, an independent publisher and collaborative group of manga-influenced creators in the UK. If you'd like to know a little bit more about me, try some of these links below.
Apologies for the delay in uploading this strip, around Christmas was when my tendonitis totally kicked off and compounded by other art deadlines I had to give my wrist a rest whenever possible. It's not back to being perfect yet, but it's a lot better than it was in January/February when I had to be on painkillers everyday!
But here you go, picking up where we left off, Sophie shops in the kids dept because of her small stature, and because the cutest, frilliest things tend to only be for young girls. I still buy hair accessories from the children's sections sometimes to fit with my loli wardrobe XD
I did that once. Unlike Sophie, I was looking for a nice fitting long skirt after trying on one from both the junior's and women's sections; however, the skirts were too long and unfitting.
I then went to the children's section to find what I wanted. Unfortunately, that skirt, as well, was too long for me and it didn't even fit me well.
I'm a 5 foot tall woman and I couldn't even fit a 'child's' skirt? I feel so disappointed in myself.
