Dear White-Mantis I love your work the art and the character stories you come up for them and am looking forward to when the comic book finally comes
out.  I hope you announce that on your web page.  But what I wanted to say
is I had a couple of small story lines for your Blade Under Mask universe. One of my ideas starts with the murder of a geisha in the city of wood.  Authorities have two suspects in mind that could have done the deed, a serial murderer or a demon and until this person can be brought to justice or a
high priest from the largest shrine in the city can come and do a protection spell around the whole town the city no longer safe at night for its female artist.  Scared for the welfare of her prized asset Asami hires the wandering samurai Kurohasu to be her bodyguard while she goes out at
night to fill her appointment schedule till this whole thing blows over. Asami pays Kurohasu in free room and food for his services.  And that
how the rhinoceros beetle could have a more certified plot line.

Another small idea I had was for the characters Nae and her friend Ajisai the girl of the red light district. Ajisai red light house is no
longer bringing in the income that used to so the owner has the girls work 
as makeup artists, hairdressers, and kimono dressers (I don't know 
if this is historically accurate but am going along with it anyway.) for geisha.  Cheaper than the actual artisans themselves the red light girls find
quick work.  One night Ajisai is helping Nae get ready for work when she comes clean about her past and tails Nae everything. Nae is so sadden about 
her friends plight that as soon as she can Nae she writes down her friends 
troubles and sends a letter to a local monastery.  The nuns there are so moved that they purchase Ajisai's contract and take her back to the shrine to trainer to be a future teacher.  I guess I just wanted these two characters to be part of a happy ending together.

Please don't feel insulted or put off by my suggestions I just thought they might help enrich your world of beautiful insects and that they might connect some of the dots in your stories.

Thank you for reading this.

After constantly looking at your character Nae, I fell for her design.
(I kept seeing her on the front page random times)
She's so petite, delicate, pure, and smooth. A real beauty! O:

I admit I am not much of a fan of human looking creatures (like with human genitals and stuff)(I am used to Werewolves...close enough?)
Actually I don't know much about it and the first thing that pops in my head are furries and neopets. Also, I dislike all bugs. (Except ladybugs & roly poly/pill bugs...Maybe some butterflies.)

Anyway I think your art actually makes me think differently about it and it's beautiful.
Your "Blade Under Mask" characters are amazing! And I have finally decided that I need to watch you on deviantart! XD (after like many months!!!!)
