Sorry for the wait! And that my updates have been so slow lately. I know it's no fun having this story broken up page by page like this. TAT

Oh, and I wanted to get this page up before the 'thanks fans' picture I'm working on since it would be unfair to you guys if I made you wait longer than you already have.

But yes! Finally! New character! And it's a tanuki! :D Er, magical Japanese raccoon dog! Isn't he cute?

- Ha ha, no, no! LOL, this tanuki pays attention and he doesn't kill people! XD

SolaratheHedgehog - Thanks! <3

TheKlownCar - Aww, thank you! Yes! So plump and round! >w< And now that I have the next pages plotted out, look forward to some more and faster updates! ^_~

KirtiMiko - Ha ha, I know, right? Hotaru is just trouble for everyone. XD

Kinshima - Ah, no, he can't talk in raccoon form. Although he is still very magical. :3

Nanno - Thanks so much! Ah, yeah, I was going to point the bubble tail towards the outside. ^^; But usually when it's reversed it means the character saying this isn't visible on the panel. (You can learn all about speech balloons here: Comic Balloon Diagram) But I'll change it since I've always thought they look awkward. XD

Hyli_Tuben_Mechanic - Oh yes! This raccoon dog can tell! >w< Ha ha, that's why he's staring at him blankly in the last panel. He's not sure what to make of Hotaru. XD

gizumimipichu - Ah! Gizu! Thank you so much! >//w//< Hee hee, yes, in real life, tanuki are kinda scary looking and the statues made of them are even scarier. o_O

Jazeki - Thank you! :D

Shisaru-Chan - Oh yeah! *highfives* That's right! >;3

HaKu10 - Hee hee, thank you! I'm so happy you like him. He's my favorite~! <3
The reason for him stealing spider webs will be revealed a little later in this chapter, but it's a material that's super strong and fine and used for making all kinds of awesome things. It's very valuable and super hard to get, so it sells at a great price at marketplaces. ^_~

SkullzMelody - Oh ho! Just wait! You will get to see him in human form too! 83 It just comes later in this chapter along with the reason he's stealing the webs. And thanks! >//w//<

CactusJuicy - Ha ha, technically, no, but I do like to incoporate features and personality traits from different animals when I design magical animals for this comic. ;D

myscreame - Thanks! Haha, he's quite the ladykiller.

k.u.t.e. - Hee hee, don't you just love his pudge? I'm sure it makes all the other tanuki jealous. >:3

skylite - Thanks tons!! <3 I'll keep it up as best I can!

Cherri - Me too. I want to draw him in human form so bad. But it won't happen until a little later. But he is adorable in all forms, I assure you! ;D

angelbliss - Uh, er, he's a tanuki, but he kinda looks like a red panda. >u<;

...The tanuki is going to either ignore Hotaru or kill him. I'm betting on that the tanuki is going to kill him!!

And then the raccoon dog will start to magically talk :p

I love how Hotaru looks in the third panel. But in the last one, shouldn't the bubble be pointing the other way?
And, >:O!! A new character~?
Hyli_Tuben_Mechanic June 23rd, 2010, 6:36 pm
aw, what a cute little raccoon dog.
I wonder if he can tell if Hotaru is a kitsune?
gizumimipichu June 23rd, 2010, 6:55 pm
Awww the tanuki is soooooo adorable! I've never seen one in real life before but I bet there not nearly as cute as that one. X3
Jazeki June 23rd, 2010, 7:26 pm

Shisaru-Chan June 23rd, 2010, 8:28 pm

AWWWWW, it's sooooooo cute!!!! I want a tanuki that looks EXACTLY like that one! It's tail is so fluffy/fuzzy! XD So cute! Nice page, Sal-chan! ;)
I wonder why the tanuki's taking the web? Using it for something special? ^^
