Pounded into a keyboard by monkeys assisted by: Drachefly

The author writes:

Step 1: Get a translation of Anaïs' shirt into Chinese. This was a bit of a mess, as my two translators couldn't agree on anything.

Step 2: Render it onto the 3D model. As Anaïs's colouration is non-editable in the new system, this involved finding the original model editor I used to create Anaïs, recolouring a lot of triangles, and then translating the modified Anaïs model into the new system.

Step 3: Use model until the Chinese-variant Anaïs arc is done

Step 4: Realise that in each and every strip featuring her, she is either wearing a winter coat, facing away from the camera, in disguise, behind a flame, covered in peanut butter, in pitch darkness, seen only in bust, polymorphed into a lemur, invisible, or incandescent; or her shirt is covered by a sound effect, obscured by a lens flare, or wrinkled enough to completely obfuscate any writing on it.
