A Kid for All Seasons – Ch01:11

<<Last <Next  Previous> First>> “Yeee” is officially Natsumi’s catchphrase! More name trivia!  Since ThunderKid is about weather and most everyone in it is named for it, these kids are named after seasons since they affect weather too.  They’re Japanese of course.  The “haru” in Haruka means spring.  The “natsu” in Natsumi means summer.  The “a” …

Ladies and Gentlemen in Waiting – Ch01:9

Runs in the Family – Ch01:6

<<Last <Next  Previous> First>> Honestly.  Nearly every shojo manga that I’ve read involves the star being late for something or another.  Denki’s chronic lateness is sort of a nod to that trend.

The Winner! – Ch01:5

<<Last <Next  Previous> First>> Hiname and Kazeta are friends of Denki’s older sister.  And she’s late to see them it seems.

Chapter 1’s Chibi: Denki – Ch01:3

<<Last <Next  Previous> First>> Every chapter I open up with a little drawing of one of the characters from my manga.  These look smaller than they usually are so they are called “chibi” (Japanese for short person).  Though it’s always difficult doing a chibi for Flarai!

In the beginning – Ch01:1-2

<<Last <Next Here it is!  The first chapter of the kids manga series ThunderKid!  Did you know that the art here was like the second artwork I decided to use for the cover?  Anyway, remember that to read ThunderKid you have to do so from the right of the page to the left of the …
