One Yukkuri Place

Looking for reviewers for Yukkuri 4koma script

Posted under General

I'm thinking about working on a family friendly Yukkuri 4koma comic series for release in artists alley at an anime convention next March. Does anyone have the time to review the script? I probably won't do a general release until after the con.

Panel 1: A friend's Reimu became pregnant. He doesn't want to terminate the koyukkuri but his apartment is too small to hold a growing family.

Panel 2: Therefore he's asked me to adopt the koyukkuri once they are old enough to live without their mother.

Panel 3: I've never taken care of Yukkuri before so I am anxiious about it.

Panel 4: I wonder what they will be like...

Panel 3: Reimu is very well mannered and polite...
[Reimu] "Pardon Reimu's intrusion."

Panel 4: Except where the koyukkuri are concerned.
[Reimu] "This is Reimu's easy place, little ones will be born very easy here!"
Hey Reimu, that my bed....

Page 5
Panel 1: I managed to settle Reimu in a nest in the closet.

Panel 2: I laid out some pillows and lined it with blankets.

Panel 3: Reimu supervised the construction of the nest but I think she was still irritated about losing the bed.

Panel 4: [Reimu] Hmmph, Mister isn't quite as easy a mark as Reimu thought.
"Easy?"...wait, was Reimu just testing me?

Such a fiercely protective mother!

End of Chapter

Is that a Marisa with the proper name of Marissa? If not, it should be Marisa. If it IS a Marisa with the proper name of Marissa, you should probably explain it in the story so people don't think it's a misspelling.

Page 1 Panel 3 'anxious' instead of 'anxiious'

Page 2 Panel 3 'be' instead of 'by'

Page 3 Panel 3 'miss' instead of 'wiss'

Page 4 Panel 1 who is 'Melissa'? :p

Page 4 Panel 4 'that's' instead of 'that'

That's all I found.

It's a misspelling, I transcribed this over from the notebook I'm writing and doing mini sketches in. I actually wasn't aware that its spelled "Marisa."

Page 1
Panel 1: This koyukkuri is Reimu. She is a Reimu type like her mother.

Panel 2: Like all Reimu types she has braids and red and white ribbon accessory.

Panel 3: Reimu was the first to be born so she is the oldest koyukkuri.

Panel 4: Work hard to be a fine older sister!

Page 2
Panel 1: This koyukkuri is Marisa. She is a Marisa type like her father.

Panel 2: She has blonde hair with one braid and a black hat accessory.

Panel 3: She was the second to be born and quickly became attached to her big sis.

Panel 4: Be easy together you two!

Page 3
Panel 1: This koyukkuri is also a Reimu type.

Panel 2: She was the third one to be born.

Panel 3: (No dialogue, Reimu is being ignored by koyukkuri Reimu who is doing rub-rub with Marisa.)

Panel 4: She is a little bit of a crybaby.
Reimu! Don't ignore your other little sisters!

Page 4
Panel 1: Reimu you can't ignore your other little sister.
[Reimu] But Reimu is doing rub-rub easy with Marisa.

Panel 2: I know, but don't you want to rub-rub with Reimu too?

Panel 3: Then you will have TWO little sisters who think they have a braggable older sister.

Panel 4: [Reimu] Reimu will rub-rub with little sister Reimu!
[Reimu] Big sis Reimu!
Such strong pride.

Page 5
Panel 1: The koyukkuri are getting along well but I'm concerned about the last one.

Panel 2: She didn't drop like the others and seems undersized.

Panel 3: Marisa and Reimu are worried but still seem hopeful.

Panel 4: [Marisa] Little one...
[Reimu] Be born soon, easy...

Page 6
Panel 1: My friend can't afford to take anymore time off work or anymore train tickets.

Panel 2: Therefore, he is going to leave Marisa with me too until the last little one is born.

Panel 3: You can tell how much he cares about his yukkuri.

Panel 4: [Friend] Reimu! Marisa!
[Narrator] *sweatdrop* Take it easy...

Page 7
Panel 1: The koyukkuri and Reimu are happy they get to spend time with Marisa. They get to bounce-bounce...

Panel 2: ...high-high...

Panel 3: ...and rub-rub...
...wait.

Panel 4: Hey stop that!
Four koyukkuri are enough!

Page 8
Panel 1: I gave Reimu and Marisa a stern lecture.
[Narrator] What will happen to this other little one if you refresh now? He might not be born easy!
They promised to be good for the unborn little one's sake.

Panel 2: Just in case, I make Marissa hunt-hunt for food everyday.

Panel 3: After playing with the koyukkuri and hunt-hunt all day, Marisa is too tired to refresh.

Panel 4: Do your best Marisa.
[Reimu] Rub-rub with Reimu?
[Marisa] Not tonight, Marisa wants to be easy...

Page 9
Panel 1: Marisa and Reimu are training me in koyukkuri care.

Panel 2: Yukkuri usually eat yukkuri food which are little pellets.
[Reimu] Little ones, munch-munch easy okay?

Panel 3: It's also good to give them other fresh food for variety and occasionally a treat.
[Koyukkuri Reimu] Mister gives sweet-sweet?

Panel 4: [Koyukkuri] Happiness!
...how cute.

Page 10
Panel 1: After eating koyukkuri often pee-pee and poo-poo.

Panel 2: Koyukkuri can't take care of themselves so the parents and I clean them.

Panel 3: I use cotton swabs and cloths with a little water to clean them up.

Panel 4: [Marisa] Mister do lick-lick with little ones, ze?
No, this is fine!
Wait, is Marisa teasing me too?

[Koyukkuri Reimu] Big sis Marisa is like Mister Bird!
How do they know what a bird is anyway?

Panel 3: They also like to press themselves against my fingers.
[Koyukkuri Reimu] Rub-rub with Mister~!

Panel 4: Watch out for happy pee-peel...
[Narrator] A-ah! I just cleaned you!

Page 12
Panel 1: The yukkuri are all sleepy.

Panel 2: I tucked them all away in their nest for the night.

Panel 3: Good night yukkuri...

Panel 4: (Close up of the stem of the last koyukkuri beginning to separate.)
