Chimi Mouryou

Near the top of one of Japan's many mountains away from all the human villages, there is a forest inhabited by youkai who are constantly learning how to deal with each other. Basically, "The Daily Lives of Crazy Youkai" This comic is a bunch of random short stories and not one continuous one. Everything is acted out in pantomime AKA there are no written words. Chimi mouryou can be roughly translated as "evil monsters in the mountains and rivers". The legend of it keeps the forest safe from humans. I am still researching more about the Edo period and youkai, so I apologize for unintentional inaccuracies. For now, the updates for this comic are random. I apologize!

Out of Hiatus... For Now!?

Hi everybody! I haven't updated this place in three years, oh no...
I apologize for going radio silent! I was working in Japan for three years as a teacher and then changed jobs! It was quite a fiasco. I am now a designer in a game company in Japan and it is quite busy. I'm already on my second year!

I am still hanging out twitter as @rasenth. If you want to contact me, feel free to throw a tweet there!
I updated my homepage which has links to other sites I am on:
I began drawing new CMMR comics again as very short four panel comics, but sold as printed doujinshi sold in COMITIA in Japan.
Here is a sample of the first book:
I am currently making my second book!
I am planning to sell this as a PDF by the end of May. Sorry for the wait! Price is still up in the air.

I am definitely working on different projects besides CMMR, as much as I love all the characters. I may draw things for CMMR now and then just to finish up some story ideas I have had a long time ago but I cannot guarantee when!

Updating soon!

Hello everybody!
I finished up with Anime Expo 2013 artist alley last week and it was a blast! I sold some of my Chimi Mouryou books and I was so happy! :D Thank you everybody who passed by!

I'll be updating the new page tomorrow!! The next few weeks will be hectic because I'll be moving to Japan...!! If only I could just finish all the pages before I leave but somehow I doubt that will happen, agh! I'll do my best!

2 week break... so soon...!!

I apologize for not uploading a page this week, folks!!

I didn't forsee that I would get a throat infection on Sunday (well, who plans these things anyway v7v). I cough at night which wakes me up constantly while sleeping, so I have to sleep extra in the morning. I decided to concentrate my waking, non-coughing hours to working on art for next week's Anime Expo artist alley, which also means I can't upload for next week either!

Anywho, if any of you are already planning to go to Anime Expo, here is more information on where my table's at!
I'll also be selling printed copies of all my finished chapters of Chimi Mouryou so far, as long as my books arrive on time! *-*//

q7q Ah, if only this chapter was black and white and sketchy. /kicked

Back onto comic!! For now. O7O;;

Hallo everybody!

Sorry for not updating yet, the past week was a bit hectic because I had to prepare stuff for Anime Expo from July 4th-7th. I'm printing copies of all the CMMR comics I have drawn so far into a book! I have only made 11 copies (I'm pretty sure they'll be $25 due to the high printing/shipping costs), so if you're passing by AX, feel free to check them out. I have no idea what they look like yet. :'D Also the past week, my poor three-year-old Intuos3 randomly died. RIP Intuos3. I replaced it with an Intuos4 now and everything is going swell!! I also had my short animated thesis film "Waffle" screened last weekend and I just graduated (woo! what a busy week!).

If you're interested, this is the link:

So if everything works out as planned, I'll upload by the end of Sunday. :D

1st Year Anniversary!! (late...!!!)

Ohmigod, I began this comic last July! Time has definitely flown!!! I didn't make this Smackjeeves until the fall, I recall...!!

And I can't believe I got 151 fans!!! WHAT THE HECK!!! I swear this morning I had like... 112 fans!? Did Smackjeeves just not update or did I suddenly get a wave........!???

I don't know. but. but...!!

I am so thankful that people like my silly comic. ;7;..... it means so much to me!! It's the first story (hehe... "story" e7e) I have ever stuck with and actually made into reality! So thank you everybody for sharing my joy with meeee. ;---;!!

I need to come up with a good anniversary picture or something... ehhehe ;---;!!

Irregular updates, aw yeah!

After an entire year of drawing this comic, I still have no idea how to space my updates! HA HA...!!!

But since I actually have *gasp* time this summer, I'm going to figure out how to pace myself. Maybe 1-2 stories a month? Maybe I'll just post dumb yonkoma (four panel comics) during the school year!? Only time will tell..............

AND I'M ACTUALLY GOING TO MAKE CHARACTER INTRO PROFILES.............. took me long enough. D'oh. XD Summer is a great time indeed.

Not in Hiatus!

Started up again~~~!! Hopefully I can keep up this quarter!! *weep*

February 16th, 2012, 2:18 am

Hiatus until April!

Hey guysss!

Sorry that I haven't gotten a good look at the comments. I'm surprised that I have over 40 people following this comic now!? WOW.

Since my life has gotten 100x more busy since I not only have to finish my second year animated film by end of March, but also make a Flash game by the end of the quarter, go to my Neopets internship two days a week (the major thing that is holding me up, actually!), keep up my goal of uploading a drawing every day, prepare for upcoming artist alleys, do a few commissions, and do something for the Kingdom Hearts 10th anniversary, I'll be taking a break from this comic until early April. Well... not like I already haven't not uploaded for a month. *gets smacked*

Jeez, when I list all that out, I'm sort of freaking myself out even more!! AHHH!!

But no worries, I still have extremely dumb ideas to make into comics. XD;; If I manage to come up with some super super short ones, I'll upload those~

I'm also working on making small character portraits so I can finally have a legitimate character introduction page. You'll ACTUALLY know their names (unless some of you follow my Deviantart).
