Not every Daimyo can be as ruggedly handsome as Masuhiro or Hirotomo. I hope you enjoy Lord Imagata anyway!

There’s something familiar about the guy he was talking to though…

Save Us from Chilly Daisuke

Crafty NN4B reader Sunwu has created a most excellent blanket inspired by the Daisuke Red Dragon Zambato emblem!

I’m certain Ken and Yumiko would fight to the death to claim it. What? You expected them to share?

Be sure to check it out on Sunwu’s Tumblr page!

Bushido Fighter

Not to be confused with Bushido Blade or Street fighter! I was feeling really inspired by Street Fighter 4 character art when I made this piece. I posted it on my tumblr, but since I’m pleased with the final outcome and it’s the Bushido Bros, I’m gonna stick it here, too! Maybe I’ll make a wallpaper out of it.

So I played through A Link Between Worlds, and it was an awesome, nostalgic sort of experience. My favorite part is the soundtrack, quite possibly my favorite Zelda OST of all time.

Also,  if 2013 was the year of Luigi, 2014 might as well be the year of Rosalina. She’s a secret character in 3D World, and now she’s debut in both Mariokart 8 and Smash Bros for Nintendo’s most recent Nintendo Direct. That’s pretty great, since she’s MY FAVORITE PRINCESS. I mean, she’s a star princess! Hard to achieve a more awesome princess rank than that, aside from, perhaps, KING PRINCESS.

524 Alt Dialog



We determined this dialog to be TOO DIRTY for the comic’s canon, but I wrote this page initially because we didn’t have a finalized script at first, just a note that somehow Ayane beats Masuhiro. It’s a little TOO OVERT maybe, but it had me laughing for hours, I KID YOU NOT. We changed the dialog because in this version Masuhiro’s saying very dirty stuff and can’t stop himself for no good reason, while in the other version Masuhiro’s trying to apologize for poor word usage, which is a bit more in character for him.

Fanart Crossover!


We got this great fanart from enthusiastic reader Katherine! Being a huge Korra fan myself, I’m always pro Korra/ATLA crossovers! I imagine since Korra could barely handle Tenzin’s airbender training, she would find any training wish Cho to be downright incomprehensible! Granted, incomprehension is often Cho’s natural state of being. Thanks, Katherine! Send more, maybe!

Who Wore it best?


OKAY, we are now officially beating a dead horse, but I do so love my mutilated equine carcasses! Also, Joe’s trying out a new voting plugin! I see so many brilliant applications for this in the future. ANYway, it’s been theorized that Ina holds a grudge against Yorikiro for stealing her place in the Kabuki play, and she now finds any chance to insult Yori about his ability to pull of feminine attire (this in a country where all the guys wear dresses anyway!). The question is, who pulls off that pink ninja outfit from page 519 better, Ina or Yori? Vote! Or not! It’s not as if anyone has any stake in the results, anyway!

Lookin’ Good!


After page 519 it just seemed appropriate!

Good Ol’ Stargate SG-1

So I started rewatching Stargate SG-1 (its not on netflix so I had to bust out the DVDs, which is fine since I have the whole series). I wanted to remember why I consider is my favorite live action tv series, and now I remember! Its writing is consistently smart and hilarious! Even over 10 years, I loved the show straight into its final season, and I even dug the DVD movie followups, especially Ark of Truth! The whole show reinvented itself for season’s 9 and 10, and despite my initial  skepticism at replacing the irreplaceable O’neil and introducing a new seemingly unstoppable nemesis, it actually worked wonderfully. Startgate was a big franchise, but I feel like it never did hit the main stream. Sure, it has a massive fan base, but it’s certainly not Star Trek of Star Wars. Still, for me, it consistently delivered the most entertainment value out of the three Star**** franchises! I’m still probably more of a Star Wars fanboy, but it sure as heck doesn’t deliver as consistent a level of entertainment as Stargate did…

I loved Stargate Atlantis, too, but its constantly shifting cast circa season 4 and 5 gave it a disjointed feel that I wasn’t so keen on. And then UGH Stargate Universe!! It’s like they were doing everything they could to make a series I couldn’t stand! Hard to believe it was the same creators as the other two series. Still better than the Star Wars prequels, though.

Welcome to NN4B!

Welcome back, Bushido readers, the new site is live! Be aware we’re still working out the kinks, but I think you’ll notice the much streamlined layout. No more main page to get to the archive, now you’re there immediately! You may also notice that reading through the archive is MUCH faster, and you can use your arrows keys to navigate back and forwards!

Joe will be posting the NN4B Remix pages one a day until they’re all up in the new Remix archive. We’ve also posted various extra content pages, including the 9 page story recap we just finished yesterday, in the Bonus Content archive. These can be accessed through the ‘Extras’ link at the top of the page. We’ll eventually have a home archive page to more easily navigate the various bonus pages and main archive. At the moment, browsing the archive is mostly a ‘straight forward or back’ affair. Stick with us as we implement more features!

As for the actual STORY, we’re going to be introducing all sorts of new/old characters/problems right off that will become quite significant later down the line! But worry not, we’ll be back to the main cast soon enough. You’ve all waited a year, so a couple more weeks to find out what’s going on with Yori and Co. is no big deal, right? Updates will now be happening every MONDAY AND THURSDAY so the next page will be up on the 19th. Look forward to it!
