Really awesome design! And I am also curious about what exactly the characters‘ name in japanese(so many japanese characters). Chinese fans call Yoshi 滨户良,Oroku Saki as小禄崎,Karai as 唐井/卡莱(sounds like 卡莱 in chinese,and some tv shows called her 唐井),and TMNT 03 showout that Tangshen is 唐慎. Ashikaga Yuu means 足利, Right? How about Maji(is that 真治?),Masato(真人?),and that eagal Koya(高野,土屋or something else)?

BTW,you r my favourite artist of the brand new TMNT. Can't wait to see the issue 33!

Awesome art my friend! I've followed your miniseries from the start! But I have one question though, is he a Ninja or a Samurai? The story only described him as the Yuu Clan's greatest swordsman. Thanks for the help!

This is an awesome design really reminds me of that Lone Wolf & Cub/Shogun Assassin type warrior guy.
Your character designs overall are awesome. Great work man
