READ LEFT TO RIGHT (just in case!XP)

Yoshiro is a young ninja with a promising future: extremely indifferent to what he can make endure to others, he can do anything to obtain information or to be seen highly by his daimyo (landlord). One day, he saves a beaten to death guy from the Yakuza just to get informations and an eventual reward. Will everything will go his way that easily?

Warning: fights, men love and uneasy subjects ahead!
Updates randomly until I find a rythm.

Genres: Humour, Drama, Real Life, Edo Period, Romance, Life Lessons, Japan Secrets!

Updates: every time possible (aka: when homeworks are not eating my time!TT-TT)

FINALLY!
I'm sorry! I wanted to update Friday, but my computer crashed and I lost all the lineart I had done.OTL
I will maybe update tomorrow too (will work on page 7 this evening)
I wish I will be able to update at least once a week this semester!!!!!
Also, I plan on reorganizing the comic: I will move the pages to be in a new chapter called "Prologue", I will also change the cover page to fit that. Yes, that means that there will be a new chapter soon, maybe after page 10.

my page titles are boring... urgh
So yeah, another week skip, because of homeworks!!!!DX
Next month won't be very good for comics too: a lots of tests and projects, but the second half of December and the winter vacations are going to be a dream.
Anyways, this week, I went into a total Luigi frenzy and listened to Luigi's Mansion theme in loop I don't know how many times...
Also, I have to draw the sketches for the next pages, so I guess there will be an update next week... hopefully.
And if you didn't notice, I have a formspring link where you can ask me questions. Ask me anything you feel like asking!

Sorry for no update last week, I was feeling kind of rushed by the university homeworks, a very strange and creepy thing that happened to me and ended up with a very weird and mildly depressed mood. Don't worry, I'm fine now and in a normal mood!

Yes, we switched to black and white because I want to be sure to keep a one week update rate. I think it looks as good like that as with shading, but it's just me.

Page 3
Edit: Also, if you haven't read the image-replacement text "going back home and taking a bath!Ohohoh, nakid time, lolz!Also, you will soon meet Yoshirooooooo!" Yeah, I have the bad habit to comment on there...XD

I don't have much to say about this page except that I gave up on vectorial lineart: too boring, too long to do and too stiff-looking. So enjoy my sketchy-like lineart... I guess it'll look better over time...
Also, The person saying "'Home" is not Kiku going home, 'cuz he is in the bath... sorry about that confusing panel!XD

Please read this
<br>
ALEXYOSHIDA- Thanks! However, I wanna know: are you reading left to right or right to left?

Go look at this page, please. Because I will change the lineart style to make it more beautiful and to increase the update rate. Thanks
New lineart

I like the last panel :D
THIS IS A "DOUBLE UPDATE" PLEASE GO BACK ONE PAGE TO SEE THE NEW COMIC!
This lineart is made freehand instead of with vectorial curves. I personally think its prettier and it's also a lot more quick for me to do.
If you all prefer the lineart of the two first pages, just tell me and I'll keep it that way.
PLEASE, LEAVE A COMMENT!C8
Thank you!<3

Updates infos! 8I
Page two. Kiku has to give a letter to Yoshiro! When will we meet Yoshiro? Should be soon. Maybe page 4 or 5.
Also, hum, I'm afraid I won't be able to update EVERY week. I'll do as much as I can and I will try to do all my homeworks and study during the week so I can do the comic pages and relax during weekends.

Long replies are awesome
It looks good! :D
And aah, I get it, about the text and wishes. It's such a cool idea :D

Thank you! I'm glad you wanted to read it! ;3;
I'm glad I was able to do the sanctuary correctly! (it took me very long)
I fixed the rope and the hair!
There will be a dialogues in the next page: I deliberately leaved this one silent to put the emphasis on Kiku's wishes: each will be very important later: they are the reason of this story ;)
Sorry for the long reply! And thanks for the comment!<3

Looking Good!
I'm so glad you updated! I've been waiting for this. :)
The only criticism I can think to say is that the close-up of the rope could do with a bit more detail (on Kikunae's hair, too), and also, I'd consider getting some actual text. :)
But I really like this, and your architecture is really good! PLUS, BACKGROUNDS ARE SO WIN. owo)b

Sorry... again!
So this is the 1st page it took me so long to do. I know it's simple and only two panels, but if I don't do simple first pages, I always end up saying: I have to redo it.
So this one, I leave it as it is.
So you can already know a little what Kikunae (I always call him Kiku, by the way) will do in the comic.
And what is that hairless guy in the second panel???? D8
(He's not really interesting, in reality)XD

ALSO: constructive criticism is appreciated since this is my very first comic and I know I'm not good at that.

Edit: I changed the rope and Kiku's hair. Maybe only AlexYoshida saw the "before", but I wanted to pointed it out just in case!
this looks good already! :D

Aw so kawaii, I can't wait to help you with this story > w<
