Unfortunately, SWAG was a one-time-only deal; it will not be returning to our event schedule. However, we are moving IHX to become our winter event! It will probably run around January-February.

Thank you to those of you who came back for a repeat of this wild fandom ride. We hope you had fun again this year too. If you were new this year, we hope you had a good time!

The whole event, we mods couldn't help but gushing to each other over all the amazing fanwork we saw. You did an amazing job this year. Whether you made a hundred fanworks or just one, we know that you pushed outside your comfort zone and really did your best. You've helped to enrich and support your fandoms. We hope you're seriously proud of yourself, because we are seriously proud of you.

Congratulations!! Feel free to reply this post and party. We hope to see you again at SASO 2017!

I personally want to congratulate Miyuki Kazuya, who placed within the final top ten not once, not twice, but thrice! Wow! What a man!!!

Joking aside, congratulations to all the teams! You did great, no matter what your final score was. And obviously the biggest congrats are going to the mod team for their hard work-- thank you again and again, you guys are the real MVPs! ♥

I wish I've been more active but it have been a fun ride anyway. I still have a lot of fills that I wanna read and I'm determined to comment on stuff once I get some free time and a break in anxiety-- so in advance sorry for the late replies out of nowhere if I startle anyone, I just feel that I need to toss back some love wwww

I hope in 2017 we will make SASO Geat Again!

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL BANNER!!! i'm absolutely in awe of it, and i'm having a really fun time finding all the top ten teams (are kuramochi and ryousuke hiding behind miyuki so they can make out? haha)

thank you for making this and sharing it!

ahhhh thank you so much! ♥ I'm super happy you spotted kuramochi and ryou-san, I was afraid they ended up too covered haha (be it either if they are busy smooching or just sneaking off for some extra batting practice to prepare for next year wwww)

and congrats to you and your team! Good job placing pedal ladies so high up in the rankings!!

thank you so much!! ;;w;; I kinda wish I could have included ALL the participating teams 'cause everyone deserved to party equally, no matter the final ranking, but alas I had to restrain myself somehow haha--- I'm glad it still feels inclusive enough!! >w<)/

IM SCREAMING THIS LOOKS SO CUTE! your art is so crisp and bright and adorable
and they're all so in character, like, you translated the art styles and facial expressions and body language quirks of every character i can see so that they integrate perfectly. i totally sympathize with being shy so i'll let you go at your own pace but i'd love to follow you on twitter or tumblr if you post more art there?

in the meantime i'll go back to staring at my girls being cute in the corner. thank you so much for drawing this!!!!!

AAAAAAaaaahhnnnn, such nice words, thank you!!! ;;0;;
makes weak noises I'm actually super bad when it comes to posting stuff on the net so actual drawing updates are pretty scarce _(´ω`;_ ∠)_ but if you don't mind that, then I'm kiwiaste at both tumblr and twitter, feel free to catch me anywhere, I'm always happy to have more people to cry about sports animanga with haha

and your girls are so lucky, you and your team fought for them bravely!! GOOD JOB AND CONGRATS!!!

ahh thank you so much, our team poured so much love into those comics, we're really happy you enjoyed them!! <3 AND I SAW YOUR REC FOR MY DAISUGA TENGU, I was so happy, thank you so much, I didn't think anybody had really read it and I really like that one a lot.... (I love the idea of mischievous crow tengu Suga haha) but seriously, I loved seeing all your fills too, they're so full of charm, and I still remember when I first saw your bokuaka banner and I fell in love with love, too ;w;

I can't wait for next summer, I definitely hope we have another great one!! <3
