I received some wonderful feedback from my peers. Can’t wait to start incorporating some of their ideas.
I thought about the days where books were serialized. My group has been reading Tamaishi in chunks and some were privy to the first few chapters and some were not. Without them, some of them struggled to care about the main character or his plight. But I never intended the latter chapters to be read alone. It’s interesting to see how different it is to everyone depending on when they jump in.
I wondered how books maintained their continuity if they were delivered over the course of months or years. Did they include things like you saw on tv, “last time we left our hero stranded in the desert, what will happen now? DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN”
