Annotations serve as world building and background. Annotations may include newpaper articles, letters, textbook excerpts, and character pages, among other media.
From the author:
Annotations are extra information that were mentioned in the previous chapter, or teasers for the next chapter...
They will never be in a comic format, and will feature different styles and media in order to tell extra information in a different way. These are canon and will be posted as if it's a regular update because they are relevant to the story. (and so I'm not making people search for updates)
There's a myriad of reasons for doing this, but mostly it's that I just like worldbuilding so there's a lot of backstory and side stories that could be left as mere mentions but it's more fun to share them. The other major reason is that it gives me a few easier updates in order to set up my next chapter, rather than taking a hiatus. Hopefully, it will be interesting for everyone as well!
