Now in color, thanks to our Nora Card sponsor Azuma!
This is a remake of page 274, drawn as if it were made today! I had a lot of fun revising this scene. I wouldn't mind revisiting more scenes from the past - though a whole page is perhaps a little too much. XD It's a lot of work.
I still think the original page has its own charm - something that's not entirely possible to completely recapture. It's a nostalgic snapshot in time, and I don't blame anyone if they say they prefer the simpler style. ^^ Still, I hope you appreciate seeing a more modern take on Kat's first appearance.
