Annual Usagi Yojimbo Storytime 36
yes, I am very late. wasn't my fault though it was the internet kami's
and the unexpected guests
>Murderanon didn't get murdered
Thank the gods
Sorry for posting image, will now Sudoku
anyway, I'm sure our resident battletech fans will enjoy this spinoff
it's going to take more than a butter knife to get me
I was on the verge of stealing your thunder and going with the storytime myself.
But then I realised that I have no idea how Space Usagi was published and where to start, because I'm an ignorant peasant.
Weren't those coloured?
I'm just using the Legends book by dark horse
I think so, or at least some chapters. but this is the best quality I got and I like black and white better anyway
hoo boy we're on space usagi already.
here we go
>Space Usagi, you got your position because of nepotism
>but good job
I wonder how Sakai drew the third panel's effect.
Ah, my favourite style of Usagi. I'm glad we got to see it again.
It was the will of the Gods that he lives. Heh...Heh...Heh...
it looks like ink splatter. no idea how he did it
>be born in future with spaceships and lasers and flying turtle corpse cruisers
>still a peasant
Got a agricultural mech instead of back breaking labor, so it evens out.
>rabbit lord promoting rabbit samurai
Try not to make the species favoritism so obvious guys
I get how grooming your future ruler into someone who listens to you is a benefit, but are there any immediate perks for the extra babysitting job?
You can't escape Feudal Japan
Not even in Future Space Japan
Direct access to the current lord, prestige, it's probably pretty easy
>still a peasant
Such is life in futuristic Japan.
Blatant nepotism is blatant.
The contrast between detailed face of Hideaki and and the simplistic cartoon-y mug of Kiyoshi amuses me.
Good to see you Murderanon. It's midnight here, so I'll catch up in the morning- but I'm just some anonymous jerk anyway, so you shouldn't miss me.
Great, now they're ACTUALLY invisible!
don't be like that, we're all anonymous jerks
hopefully the thread survives until tomorrow
this is pre digital, so I'm betting brush splatter using a sumi brush, reversed using a xerox machine, then he paints the planets, spaceships, and space castle.
He uses a brush for some of his fancier lettering and landscapes.
And the lords still have no entertainment better than hunting. Future feudal Japan is so disappointing.
Fucking political marraige bullshit.
at least kabuki is more popular than noh theater now
>have immensely advanced tech
>still choose to live like feudal lords and samurai
For what purpose
So that's your way to keep swords relevant, Sakai...
don't knock arranged marriages until you've tried them.
Such is the nature of future feudal japan.
That is a very exploitable smug expression on Matabe.
muh bushido vs good heart
Hmmm... do you the first panel here counts towards "vertical panels in the style of illustrations on folding fans"?
Such harsh language. Cut out his tongue.
sure. SPACE folding fan
Then I'll also count this and this for the total of 48
With our luck, the thread will probably hit bump limit in a day.
Or until your wife poisons you.
Guess it's a way of showing age.
Isn't it kinda the same with the main series?
