- Volume 6
The original version of Carciphona was titled "Blackbird" up until the printing of the first volume of the new version. It was drawn from 2005 to the end of 2006, during which 5 chapters were produced. At the end of chapter 5, I decided to restart because
it was the cool thing to do
I really disliked the old art, and the storytelling back then leaned more towards a gag manga which doesn't suit the story anymore. After I took down the old version for good, I've been asked numerous times over the years to repost them. Normally I would not do this because I really would rather not live with bad old work in my face all the time and knowing a lot of people out there have ready access to it, but I'll leave this atrocity here in case it inspires anyone to realize that everybody go through incompetence and tough times before they get anywhere, and that good manga/art/story don't magically appear. I hope this will make you think "Wow! This used to be straight garbage and it took her so many years to be a better artist, I can do this too!"
