>>131027417Tomoe Ame was kind of interesting early on, but became basically non-existent later on. Eh.

>>131027417Too pure for this world.

>>131027603Damn, I never put that much thought on this. Seconding this.

>>131027824She hasn't even appeared in the series in like 15+ years in case you didn't notice.

Not the most interesting girl in the story but has a heart of gold. Too bad that she is hardcoded by karma to never reach happiness.

Wondering if we're ever going to see her again at this rate, and if Stan has something planned to avoid simply regurgitating the earlier story where Usagi had to let a relationship go because she was betrothed to someone else. That Usagi is on good terms with the head of the clan she's marrying into might play a part.

>>131027417too much of a jobber

>>131027603>>131027824>>131027836I mean, she IS based on Sakai's first wife, who passed away. I wouldn't blame him for not wanting to revisit a character who reminds him of his dead wife. Either that, or he's still researching Japanese weddings

>>131027836Wait, fuck, what? The tea ceremony was eons ago? I mean, I went through those annual storytimings, but I never delved into "year of release"

>>131028437Yup. Chanoyu came out in April 2006. Over 16 years ago.For comparison, Jotaro and Katsuichi "disappeared" in 2004 and came back in 2020 in The Return, while Kenichi and Mariko, who came back in the same story, had been absent since 1991.

>>131029320now THAT'S a basque phenotype

>>131030601The author is Japanese-Hawaiian, so by that alone it's not gonna be your stereotypical American comic.But to further compound on why it is what it is, it's got it beginnings in 80's indie comics of the type that nowadays would be considered "boomer furries comics".So yeah it's also been going on for about 40 years now.M8nk2

>>131027417She needs to step up her game. With only a little work she could eternally BTFO all competition. And not just romantically- her ancestors vouchsafed her a vision of her rival's perfidy, and based on the way he reacted, it seems it was accurate and he knows. She needs to get on that.

Feudal Japan's autism has been literally, like some conceptual Terminator, trying to fuck over Stan from before he was born.

>>131038724Good thing it was only a short storyline, otherwise Stan would inevitably end up writing something that'd be a little too close to Draconis Combine.

>>131035161He did the catfight?

>>131038104Idk. Quietly being retired is probably the superior option. It's just that Tomoe had a shitty/unfair exit that can't really be undone. It's a reflection of how unfair life is. One of Stan Stakai's grandchildren died years ago as well. It's really horrible to think about how bad his luck is, despite producing a (relatively) upbeat and nice stories. I'll probably cry for real on the day when he leaves this world.

>>131039691No. It was probably a very good thing. He had creative control on it, and made money.

>>131039726How much control does a producer have over a director?

>>131029343>comics and toys in the backgroundWhat a nerd


>>131037516Kek you are right!

She's kind of boring most of the time. She's at her best when some other character is getting under her skin and making her lose her usual unflappable polite demeanor, but most of t0twdghe time she's too prim and stoic to really stand out.

>>131029343He became hayao miyazaki?

>>131027417She's not as cute as Chizu

I'm a few issues behind because comixology went to complete goddamn shit and I don't know an alternative to give money to Stan.

>>131043069My method (as a non-american) is to read new issues online and to order the original (Sakai lettered) trades from my local american comic book importer when they come out. In the end, Sakai gets the money, so I have no regrets because of my mild piracy.

>>131043069Speaking of Chizu, she'll appear in the next 3 issues long story arc. Also starring: Komori Ninja and lord Hikiji's newest sinister plot. I wonder if she'll deflower cousin Wilbur's eyes by kissing Usagi right in front of him.

>>131043732Yeah. I'll have to start picking up those more. I want support the series but christ fuck.>>131043804Nice. Teh Tatami story was fun, until everyone killed themselves, but Chizu stories usually tend to be more impressive than that one was.

>>131043831Remember that Chizu story where an entire castle garrison commits seppuku? Good times.I always liked Chizu, the hopeless softie she semi-secretly is, but the moment she called Kitsune on her thieving bullshit was when she became my favorite character.

>>131038755>>131038724For someone who has spent several years subsisting on worms, grubs, and raw meat she looks pretty cute!

>>131039914Actually a lot. Enough that they can fire the director and replace him.

>>131043905That's pretty well where people's patience with the latter ran out most every story time. It's a bit funny to see every year.

But I don't get why do you keep hating on Kitsune, she's not that bad.">The Thief and the Kunoichi is storytimed>"Oh."Every single year.But I liked Kitsune's most recent story. Yukichi's inexperience with thieves allowed for some good comedy, the Chad Snitch made a fool out of the virgin pickpocket and Usagi being tired of Kitsune and calling out her bullshit was almost a cathartic experience. It also became clear to me how hard Kiyoko carries the more recent Kitsune stories. She is much more interesting, fun and competent than the fox and her actions don't feel malicious, even when she's stealing everything not bolted to the floor.

>>131038724Can’t stop the J-Train, baby!

>>131039135Isn’t that basically Space Usagi, except there aren’t any mechs and _one_ subfaction isn’t 100% asshole?

>>131044452>But I liked Kitsune's most recent story.It was nice seeing Usagi get fed up with her, and I liked that it seemed like she was heading towards some character development and seeing her actually CARE about someone is appreciated. But then she just last minute threw it away and I wash my hands. I'm not even mad anymore.

>>131051102It's vaguely post-Sengoku Jidai with a full OC cast, with the occasional historical character tossed as a character in some story another OC character tells.Like in the case of the tale about how the grass cutter got lost at sea.

>>131051245Thx for explaining.

>>131051102Its clearly based on post Sengoku Jidai during the first years of the Edo period and although they don't mention Ieyasu Tokugawa by name his decision to make his son Hidetada the new Shogun early on is a major plot point in one of the stories. We do see some historical figures being drawn as anthropomorphic animals during the Grass Cutter arc, pic related is supposed to be Minamoto no Yoshitsune Now every adaptation from the Ninja turtles just have them live in a vaguely Sengoku era time.
