That Genchu is a sentimental softy. The small tablet with the Daisuke Red Dragon symbol on it is a spirit tablet.
We’ve posted a new page to the Extras section to NN4B: Bushido Bards. On this page we are slowly collecting some of the many song-based reader contributions to NN4B. We’ve only just started, but check it out!
Work on prepping NN4B Voulme 2 for print continues. The book is going to be somewhere between 200 and 300 pages! I can’t really give an accurate estimate yet because we have quite a few “pages” online that will have to become 2 or 3 pages once they’re formatted for print.
We’re working really hard on improving these pages as we go. We’re adding bubbles, improving the sound effects (not yet complete on this page), updating the panel layout, and revisiting the dialog itself.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the first page of volume 2. I think you’ll see, it’s quite an improvement over the old version from nearly a decade ago!by Joseph Kovell
