Well... in case you haven't heard yet, ShiftyLook is shutting down all of a sudden. I was suspicious when "Death of Bravoman" arc popped up, but I thought it was just another story arc that would come up with some hilarious plot device at the end. Seems like my suspicions were correct.  :|

Here is their announcement.

I wasn't really expecting this. Seems like thus far it's done for the Klonoa webcomic.

I'm pretty shocked and saddened as well, but I'd like to think that it's not the end. We still have the forum, we like coming here to talk, and we can still make a difference, so that's something.

There's still hope that Namco will give Klonoa another shot, perhaps once they have enough of pushing Pac Man without much success, they'll look back to Klonoa again. However I'd only like for that to happen with competent hands. We don't need for Namco to close the series on the Klonoa equivalent of Sonic 06.  -_-

Yea, I'm saddened by this too. I'm sure Namco will give Klonoa a chance to shine again. Maybe, If we try to raise awareness of him, and do a bunch of fan projects, they will.

Can't say much about it now, but there are bigger things in store for Klonoa. I don't look as this as a death, I look at it as a new beginning.

Of course I am.  ;) But, when the time is right, I'll be sure to share it with all of you.

I, too, am upset about this news. It seems likely to end on a cliffhanger as well. Couldn't they at least give us a few more strips to give it a proper ending?

Oh well, at least I can invent my own ending (however badly it turns out to be).

Thanks to FRAYKER for the signature! :)
