Happy Friday! :D I hope everyone is staying safe at home.

This cover alludes to a couple of things. If you want some background info going in (because I don't expect readers to remember this stuff after all this time XD) and a solid guess at who the two new characters in the background might be:

Kylie talks briefly about the Danrir and Kijin conflict here (and the page after). Although 'Aen Luce' is mentioned a couple of times here and there, the first mention of the truce talks between Fel (the Kijin region) and Nines (the Danrir region) is dropped here. Seia and Ophelia are both on their way to Aen Luce, where these truce talks are supposed to take place.

Of the three flashbacks seen in Nemi's shadows, one of them is from way back in Chapter Four, when Nemi and Mike were traversing the Lapia Oak caverns together.

I did a little April Fool's joke on the day - if you missed it you can catch it on Discord :)

Alrighty, have an awesome day everyone! <3 Remember to stay healthy and I'll catch you guys next week with the next update~ thank you for reading >3<*)/

Beautiful cover <3

...and is that a happy family reunion or a teary goodbye?

Stay healthy, too, and still have a great rest of your birthday evening :) <3

I like how you did the paneling as the shadows off of Nemi's feet. Cool idea! Awesome cover page!

We're staying safe as best we can, and I hope you (and everyone) are too!

Thank you megados! :D I can't take full credit on the shadow panels idea, actually - a friend of mine suggested it when I was stressing about how to do this cover page, haha. I'm glad you find it cool! >w<*)9

I'm glad to hear you're staying safe, megados. It's a scary time ;_;

Love the cover <3 I keep staring at the little poof ear, I don't think we've seen Danrir with that kind of ear yet, have we? I kind of doubt it, but I hope Nemi can get to see her siblings during this chapter in the present time. Hopefully when all is well >__<

(Also you say this chapter's akin to Ace Attorney, but crazy murder stuff happens in ace Attorney so I'm still pretty worried XD)

Thank you Cici-muffin <3 the poof ear is actually a Kijini! Her ears are loosely based off of Scottish folds:


She is the first of her ear-type to appear in-comic, yes yes :D

We'll be seeing plenty of Nemi in the present time in this chapter, I can make no promises about her siblings XD

(Also LOL you have a point there XD I'll be sure to point it out once we're at the point I was thinking of in particular!)

Ohhh that's so CUTE <3 Also this makes much more sense now that she is confirmed to be Kijini XDDD

Interesting cover-art...I'm scared to speculate based on the imagery.... VERY scared...

I'm glad you find it interesting! :D

I'd say you should be scared, hyohyohyo... but I don't know, it may not be so bad, right?

Right? ;P
