This time's main themes were "fall" and "ginkgo leaves"! Ginkgo-lined streets in fall have such a great, wistful atmosphere somehow. If only all our sorrows could be carried off by the wind... That's the mood I get in.
Ginkgo leaves also just give me a Marisa-like vibe, somehow. (Shallow as it is, it probably has to do with the color.) Moving on from there, I started wondering if there were any ginkgo tree youkai... and after doing some research, what do you know, I found one in grandmaster Mizuki Shigeru's youkai encyclopedia!
With that, I felt that I had no choice but to write this...! (If you're curious, I suggest looking it up yourself.)
The panel with Reimu getting ready for battle was the thing I wanted to draw the most, so now I am content. Sorry for leaving out the fight scene itself due to time constraints! lol
Since I was able to draw what I came here for, I was most satisfied with this book.
I also want to draw something with more action-packed danmaku at some point, though.
This is the first book I've put out in a while, so I honestly don't want to end this afterword at all, but I suppose it's time.
Thank you for reading to the very end!
Hello. It's been a while. This is Hinata Vanilla.
It's gotten all cold already, but how have you been doing? (Personally, the between-seasons weather always makes my body act up a bit.)
As for this book, I was just drawing what I felt like, so I'm sorry if the story itself felt a bit light as a result~! I wish I'd had more time and pages...
