Heya guys, it's time for the awards ceremony from the bonus poll my friend Phoenix ran for me!

Without further ado, here are the results of your votes!

Barely a team for two nights, and already they're bustin' up the charts! I think this might be slightly biased by the discorders >;3 >;3 But I'm very proud of them!!!

Here's the results breakdown for this category!

I'm real happy for Rue winning best outfit! I'm so glad people like her Urban Witch Aesthetic.

Here's the results breakdown for this category!

I was really please with this transformation, so I'm really glad people like it too! I need to draw more transformation pages!! All transformations all the time!!!

Here's the results breakdown for this category!

Hahaha I'm so glad people like Cassidy's whole weird scissor split situation. It's quite a specific power set compared to Undine's water control or whatnot! But it was so much fun to draw.

Here's the results breakdown for this category!

This line has been so memefied in the discord that I constantly forget it was just a thing that happened in the actual comic. What a dork!!!

And here's the results breakdown for this category!

Thank you to everyone who voted! This was a ton of fun to see the results of!

Heya Magical Kids! With the help of the SD discord (and especially my friend Phoenix Feet), we've got the results of another Sleepless Domain character poll for ya!!! A lot has happened in the comic since last time, so how will the new rankings shake out!?


(For clarification, voters were able to choose their first, second, and third favorite character. Each choice got 3, 2, and 1 points respectively.)

I also realized I might've only posted about the poll on my twitter and discord this time, so I'll be sure to put it on the site somewhere next time ^^; probably in the blog under a current page. But thank you very much to everyone who participated, and to all ya readers in general!

Greetings, Mahous!
If you've been looking for a place to discuss Sleepless Domain with other cool people, SD has an Official Unofficial discord  now! Everyone in it is super nice and it's been really great to hang out with everyone and see their theories and reactions. I drop in and out as I'm working during the day, so you can also ask me non-spoilery questions! >:P

Heya Everyone! First regular blog post in a long time, huh ^^;;
I wanted to let you all know that I'm heading out this weekend on a trip to visit a friend in Taiwan. Thanks to travel time, though, it'll end up being closer to two weeks that I'll be out.
In the meantime, I've lined up some really awesome guest art that I'm excited to show you guys! I'm really sorry to break things up in the middle of the chapter, but I've honestly been sorely needing a break like this. I think I'll be able to come back at the next pages stronger than ever as a result! >:0

In the meantime, if you're not already familiar, I have a youtube channel you might enjoy! I recently started doing occasional Let's Plays of games I find interesting, and there's also some Sleepless Domain process videos if you've ever wanted to see a page get made! Like this one!

Sorry again for the bit of a hiatus, and thank you as always for your patience and readership! I've seriously gotten so many nice and thoughtful responses to SD, and I'm so excited to show you guys more of what I have planned! >3<

Heya Mahous, Cube here!

I realized I haven't made a proper post here since I took over art duties, so this seemed like a good time!!

First off, if you're curious about who these losers are that Undine's currently interacting with, they're crossover characters from one of my other comics, Kiwi Blitz!

You certainly don't need to go back and read KB for the sake of this lil' cameo, but if you happen to be curious about my earlier work, KB can be started over here! Like SD, it's all available online for free. It's more of a goofy near-future scifi adventure, but obviously I write and draw both so there's a lot of stylistic similarities if you like this one!

And yes, these are Alternate Universe versions of the characters, so don't worry about any kind of nonexistent shared continuity ;0

And meanwhile, thank you so much for your patience and understanding as I've learned to draw this comic! A lot has happened since I took over art duties, like moving back home from Japan and switching to full-time comicking, and I think the art's made pretty big improvements since I first came on! Oskar had some big artistic shoes to fill, but I'm doing my best not to disappoint! :0 I've certainly learned a ton in the process, and I hope to keep improving and make SD really impressive to look at as time goes on.

But on that note, I better get back to tomorrow's page work! Thank you so much again for reading my magical girl comic. I'm really excited to share it all with you guys!!

Heya Guys, Mary Cagle here, aka Sleepless Domain's writer.

First off, this is probably going to be a bit of a hefty post, so let's start with the TLDR version:

Chapter 3 of Sleepless Domain will resume on December first, And will drawn and colored by me.

Up to this point, Sleepless Domain has been a collaborative effort between myself and the super talented Oskar Vega. Unfortunately, Oskar's moving on to other full-time illustration and comics work, and thus very understandbly won't be able to continue as the artist of Sleepless Domain. I know many of you are here for Oskar's stellar art, and his absence will definitely be felt.

But I promise to do my best to bring you a beautiful comic in my own way. If you're unfamiliar with my art, you can check out my twitter or either of my other comics (Kiwi Blitz and Let's Speak English) to get an idea!

Of course, drawing three comics is going to be a challenge, especially since I'm still working as a full-time English teacher in Japan until spring next year.  That's why we'll be taking this one-month hiatus until the beginning of December, to make sure I have time to get the art right and build a buffer. I have a lot of big plans for SD, and I really want to make sure I can execute it to the best of my ability.

Thank you so much to everyone who's read the comic so far, and thank you to Oskar for bringing the first two chapters to life! I promise this is just the beginning of the story.

And just to clarify; the main character is, indeed, Undine ;0 See you magical kids in Chapter 3!

Greetings, Everyone!

Now that the comic's really picking up speed, it seemed like a good time for an inaugural blog post.

First off, I'm Mary Cagle, and I'm the writer of this comic! It's always been one of my aspirations to do a magial girl story, and I'm really excited to share this one with you! Let's just say I have big plans, and we already know where the comic's going and how it shall end. But that's a long way away off, of course. I hope you enjoy the ride for now! ;)

If you aren't already familiar with our crew, please say hello to our artist, Oskar! We needed someone who could draw the most magical of shoujos, and Oskar delivers the hits.

And none of this would be possible without the support of Hiveworks, especially its CEO Jojo and Isabelle of Namesake.

We're all working hard to bring ya the best comic possible, so please look forward to new pages every tuesday and thursday! I'm really excited by all the positive feedback we've gotten already, and we have some serious surprises in store for you as the story develops.

Stay magical, everyone~! ;)
