I completely understand needing to take a break. Take all of the time you need! I'm sorry you've had to deal with so many annoying people like that on these websites... While I haven't commented yet on your comic, I have been enjoying it a lot so far. If you do decide to continue with it in the future when you are off your hiatus, I'll be sure to give more feedback! I hope things get better for you~

Take that step back.
I can't wait for you to return, and always remember that we who do like your comic will be awaiting your return. Until then, relax, and do something fun!

Who's hating on PRS? Who has betrayed us?

I hope you get over this soon! It’s honestly a shame that people are hating your comic. Personally I don’t see anything in particular wrong with it, so I can’t really understand where they are coming from.

Who ever says that you need to hurry up or that kind of stuff or people harassing you just know that they think that your some computer and not a human being behind that profile picture. I don't see any difference with the comic so anyone who thinks it's bad are probably speed posters because they just want to see the next page without thinking about what you think. Take a break and live your normal life for awhile.
Best Wishes Mystic Hunter

People are people, people can't run forever, but some like to believe they can, and they attempt to, and they don't admit that they can't. You don't seem to be like that though. Most web comic writers feel that if they tell their fans whats happening in their lives and how they're feeling about it, it will make their fans think lowly of them, which is wrong. You aren't like that though.

It's very good that you're taking this break, and it's good you have recognized that you are burnt out. Taking this hiatus was a great decision on your part. The people who truly care about this comic completely support you and we wish you the best of luck in the future.

Take your time. Your mental health will always be more important than PRS, and we'll all still be here when you get back~

Giving up may be an option, but it's not an opportunity.
It's alright! I'm pretty sure you can take a rest after those peoples who were jealous of your art that wants to gives you negatives through.. well negative comments. But anyways it's good to see you standing on ground not giving up by stay fallen down!

Whenever someone chooses a comic that they love to go to haitus, it really is such a shame because the comic they cared for, probably more then all of us, has to be delayed. It goes to show that a lot of talented artists like Neko struggle with depression because of hate. Believe us, take as much time as you need, and just remember that harmful things are never the answer. Just keep staying Strong, no matter what happens.

I completely understand I'm just a bit sad seeing some of my favorite things online to on a hiatus lately....

Take as much time as you need

Take as much time as you need to to feel better! A lot of people are negative these days, and they don't seem to understand that you are spending hours on each page, just trying to make it the best it can be. Plus, everyone here is reading this beautiful comic for free. People have no right to demand things, because we are all people. People can only do so much, and with so much pressure on them, it makes it even harder. Sorry I went on kinda a rant there. People just need to think about others then themselves. Anyway, I will definitely miss it while its gone, but you are more important then if it updates or not. (Plus, I personally love how the story is going. Every page has been beautiful, and even if the next page doesn't meet your expectations, just know that your art is still absolutely stunning)

People can be a**holes. Its a part of life to ignore them. And if that means taking a hiatus, go right ahead. I support you.

You be such a trooper. Admirable determination and major discipline. You are doing great Neko, and what descisions you make, I will back them up.

don't worry about it this is some of the best digital art ive seen so far. you get idiots who will pester you all the time for no valid reason this story is amazing

Guest, Sep 19 2018 11:33 pm     Reply

What? You can't go on hiatus, how am I gonna find out if Echo is Garitina then???

In all seriousness though, I know how hard it can be to push yourself when there's nothing left. Take all the time you need, and more importantly make sure you enjoy yourself.

@KaidaCreator: Thanks so much! Means a lot!

@Bluemj61: Thank you! It's been really stressful lately. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things though!

@orgostevani: Thank you! I've been playing a lot of MH while trying to get my motivation back!

@Puggger: Thank you! I'm fine- just need a break.

@42Meep: Unfortunately I do not know their address/es so you can't go find them. =P

@Wondermuffin06: People just like to point out all the flaws for some reason. It's not like I don't know they're there. It's just discouraging sometimes. X_x

@Mystic Hunter: I wholeheartedly approve of your avatar. Just seeing that made me smile. Then I went to go hunt some monsters. The RNG has been kind to me lately. xD

@Alex: I try to be open with everyone if I know I'll be late or am taking a break. X_x Otherwise I get a lot of "WHEN IS THE NEXT PAGE?!1!?!111?!?" type comments.

@Nashew: Thank you!

@Foxyjosh: I'll be back soonish.

@AndreTheLugia: No worries, I'm not cancelling PRS any time soon. xD Just taking a much needed break.

@Enderstar: I feel like a lot of artists like to see their work enjoyed. So when there's an increase in negativity it can be quite detrimental to motivation. X_x Which is always a struggle to keep... Working on it though!

@TheMegaDarkrai126: It's okay- we'll be back soon-ish!

@SentryBeat: There's definitely a lot more GOOD people than bad. It's just hard to ignore all the negativity sometimes. ^_^'

@Samarican: Thank you!

@Sparrow726: Thanks so much! It means a lot to hear that you enjoy everything so far. <3 I've got big plans for hte story... I just have to get far enough to reveal them!

@Legosamurai732: Ye! Thank you!

@Sonic: I'm just taking a break- not quitting. xD Relaaax.

@buscuit: Ye! Thank you!

@Derpygungun123: Thank you! It means a lot!

@Guest: Pfft. I definitely needed some recharge time. I don't get much downtime outside of school and work stuff so it was wearing me out. xD

@I LOVE ESMV: And there will be more chapters!

@Chenghoe: Thank you!

@Crimson_At_Death: Thank you! I hope to be back soon-ish

Just returning to check up on how your doing.

Jaden (Guest), Oct 17 2018 12:09 pm     Reply

This may not be something you or anyone agrees with, but I personally have found that stopping something I'm working on just because of anxiety doesn't help. Or rather, it helps for a time, but it's diminishing returns. And after a point, the idea of getting back to it is more scary and anxiety-inducing than whatever I wanted to take a break because of in the first place, so instead of quitting and coming back to it, I try to set goals and just do bit by bit until I get what I want. I don't know if this applies to you and your situation, I just thought I'd share my experience, maybe it'll help you somehow. You're absolutely not alone in this and I wish you the best.
