- Thanks! Haha, but he's already been taken by another character in this comic! XD

godmoderncommander - Yeah! They just narrowly escaped with their lives, but they're fine. Physically, yes, mentally, no. XD

Hyli_Tuben_Mechanic - Aww, thanks! He looks so huggable, right?

Airse - Thank you so much, Airse!! O//v//O

Profanity00 - Yes, yes! He's the nicest guy in this comic. Maybe even too nice sometimes since he's usually more concerned about others than himself. ^^;

renchikolul - Such a sweet comment! Thank you~! <3 Yeah, I wanted to make him fat and round. So few characters are like that, but I think it's really cute. :3

abdie the hedgehog - Yep! Chubby and baby-faced, he's probably the youngest looking of the bunch.

SkullzMelody - I'm so happy you like him! ;v; And yes! Hotaru should learn to be nicer like Tanuki. Maybe then Yumi wouldn't yell at him so much. XD

Kurozaki - Thanks! Haha, he has that effect on people. It's no wonder why Tanuki is so popular with the ladies! ;D

ChiakiAida - Really? That makes me smile! You're so nice, Chi~!! You always give me such wonderful comments. <3 But yes, haha, he is taken! XD Although he is too embarrassed to say it. I can't wait to show you what his girlfriend looks like! She is really cute too.
