Hotaru should be more appreciating of Naoki's kindness. >:(

Just one page this week. :0 LOL, all that talk about cutting back on backgrounds, and look at what I do.

And now you know why Naoki was taking Nephi's webs! They're like, worth a fortune! 8D

- Haha, well, the inn keepers only ever see Naoki in human form, so him renting a room isn't much of a problem. However, they are mighty suspicious about him, since he disappears quite often.

TehEmi - Yay! I'm happy to hear it! Making someone's day makes my day!
Haha, and Naoki is already taken. XD

XxBloodxAlicexX - Your avatar is da bomb! 8D

Harrow - I know, right? You can use them for practically everything!
I kinda liked it. :3

SolaratheHedgehog - Yup, yup! Naoki's got it all! XD

Profanity00 - Thank you! I'm glad you said that. I love changing the character's outfits in comics. (Even if it's just something small like taking their jacket off.) It makes things a little more interesting for the reader and myself. And a double thank you! Drawing backgrounds is just as fun for me as drawing characters, but they take me so much longer that I usually have to leave them out. :(

CalistaCousland - Thank you so much, my darling! <333

torchthewolf - I imagine the webs go for a pretty high price! Jorogumo spin the finest and strongest silk ever, but getting your hands on some is nearly impossible without getting killed in the process. So he's a very rich tanuki indeed! Oh, I don't think I have any Tuskumogami in this installment of the story. I had planned on having Yumi and Hotaru fight a Ittan-momen and a Kasa Obake at one point, but couldn't fit it into the story, so they've been left out along with Suseri and the Kamaitachi. :(
But I enjoy long comments! Yours especially! So write as much as you want, man, write away!

angelbliss He enjoys cookies best! >w<

ZivXanthus - Thank you so much! You're so nice! ;u; I will try to do my best every time!
Most silk material comes from spiders in their world, Jorogumo silk being the best you can get! It's strong, light, and super silky! Only it's really hard to get some without getting killed...

MeepLover - LOL, I know! Drama, drama, drama! XD

emblem99 - His kindness gets him into trouble sometimes, but yeah, he's a super sweet guy! Now if only Hotaru would show a little kindness too, this world would be a happy place!

ChiakiAida - Thank you, thank you~!! I love drawing backgrounds! It's too bad they take me forever to draw. >_<; And yes, jorogumo webs are the best material for making clothes and stuff. But jorogumo silk is very rare, and difficult to get, so the price for it is very high.
I really enjoy drawing my characters in different outfits too. It's fun! And I just love it when people draw my characters! >//v//< You've given me so many gifts already! You're so awesome!!

alexisneo - Oh ho ho, you~! <333 You're too kind to me! Your comments make me blush so bad!! ;//v//; Thank you!
And I'm really glad you're liking him! >w< Chubby nice guys usually don't get much attention, but I'm hoping to change that with Naoki!

pokesam - Thank you so much! ;D

Nym.Katharina - Thank you! Oh, I didn't use any guides or reference for the house. Since the world this story takes place in is pure fantasy, I decided I wanted it to look like a mesh of eastern and western styles, so I just went with my imagination on the environment. However, I stayed at a Japanese-styled inn for three days during my trip in Japan, so a lot of the room is inspired by my memories there.

Yasaonna-chan - Thank you very much! Aw, you're so sweet! I'd be absolutely delighted if you drew Naoki! ^v^

athdlg - That makes me so happy! You are so wonderful to say that! Thank you!! >v<

renchikolul - Thanks! Haha, yeah, I find it hilarious that Hotaru is the only one here who thinks they're enemies.

Ai Ataru - Now if only Yumi found it so endearing! You can tell by her face in panel 3 that she's thinking about strangling him, LOL.

Elemental-Ren - Hotaru complains a lot in this comic. XD And thanks!

JoKeRcologne - Thank you very, very much! It means so much to me for you to say that! I'll do my very best to keep it up.

SakuraTenshi - Haha, I know! The reason this comic is also in the drama genre is because of Hotaru. XD

RainRose - Hotaru has his reasons for hating him, but they're not very good ones. If I were there, I'd be totally hugging him right now too.

ZivXanthus - Yay! I'm so happy to hear that! I've been wearing my Hotaru shirt too, and I just love it! Thank you SO much!

He must be a pretty crafty tanuki to be able to rent his own room without humans realizing.
TehEmi November 7th, 2010, 7:24 pm
YAY!!! This made my day.

BTW... Marry me, Naoki!
XxBloodxAlicexX November 7th, 2010, 7:35 pm

Profanity00 November 7th, 2010, 8:14 pm
I like Yumi's new outift! And very beautiful background. :3
CalistaCousland November 7th, 2010, 8:19 pm
Okay, may I just say that Tanuki is absolutely adorable in the last panel! :) <3
torchthewolf November 7th, 2010, 8:43 pm
Wow! now that's what I call business! "Collecting" Jorogumo Web and selling it! he must make a LOT of money! I wounder how much he gets for it. must be worth a lot for web that I assume is really strung stuff. Also I assume you have head of Tsukumogami? I ask just because I wounder if one will show up.

Well anyway that's enough outta me. I feel like I carry on too much. I'm probably not but still I just think I do sometimes.

ZivXanthus November 7th, 2010, 8:49 pm

renchikolul November 8th, 2010, 5:42 pm

JoKeR November 9th, 2010, 6:12 am
Really well drawn I have to say.

The Tanuki is now one of my favourite characters.

RainRose November 10th, 2010, 3:08 pm

I'm so jealous of your art *3*.
You're so skilled in background!

number1animemangaluver November 16th, 2010, 4:27 pm
NOO!!!! The awesomeness of your backgrounds pains my unworthy eyes!! >[]< But yeah, Naoki kicks butt. Erm, in the first panel, it should be 'anyway'... Sorry, I hate bad grammar. D:
Joshie December 24th, 2010, 9:15 pm

Junpei December 12th, 2011, 5:48 am
