Webcomic description

Natsuki Fujimura moved to Tokoyama after an attack in Hokkaido left her and her closest friend injured the summer of their third year of junior high. Hidden among the population of Tokoyama, Natsuki created a semblance of a normal life.

Two and a half years later, all of it is shattered when the enemy that found her in Hokkaido discovers her whereabouts.

Updates on Thursday at 11 AM (MST)

Desperate to protect her friends, Natsuki tries to take on the enemy alone. She soon discovers that even her nearest and dearest have secrets to tell and it may require all of them to keep the Black Dog at bay.

Liloka Studios is a collaborative effort between Myriai (that's the main go-to for anything to do with the website, comic, and writing) and Mother Roshiya (who does the lovely art for the comic). The two have been friends since about 2008 when they met in a Japanese class at the local Community College and found they shared much in common including a love of anime, manga, and fantasy stories.

Hi guys!

I'm really sorry, but it looks like we're going into our winter break earlier than we planned and it's going to last longer than our usual breaks due to a lot of things going down right now.

We'll be back on February 16, 2023.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, and a super Happy New Year we'll catch you around V-Day.

Good morning to Felix (specifically) the rest of you may also have an albeit slightly grudging 'Good morning' :D Not anything against you, but I am very much not feeling getting up this morning. Nanowrimo is not going well this year, but there's still half a month to pull something out of the blazing dumpster fire that is this draft of whatever the heck I'm working on >.>

Next week is Thanksgiving here in the US and while I don't really acknowledge it for the story of Pilgrims and Natives that they told me in elementary school--I do enjoy it because it reminds me to give thanks for what I have (good friends, good family, and a half dozen other things I forget about most of the time), get some very tasty food, and I get to get off work and visit with family.

What are you thankful for this year?

I'll have a full list next week ♥

Good morning and Happy Fall y'all!

Back with the next page in our saga (I promise it's not all school hijinks, just for now ^_^)

I've been home for the past few days sick with the flu. I implore you when you put something out into the universe be specific about what you want because I just asked for 'Ice Cream and 3 or 4 days off in a row'--I got my ice cream, but did not want to be sick for those 3-4 days, but what can you do?

In other news, I've getting fully hooked by Stray Kids and more specifically "Case 143" and a member of the group (Felix if you're familiar--if not let's just say he's a very cute kid with a VERY deep voice and I ♥ it). I'm not a "Stay" yet, but I do find that the more I listen to their stuff, the more I tend to like it--even if I'm not huge on rap and hip hop.

Anyway, I'm supposed to be writing 50,000 words of story, not Author's Comments on KnoY--so I'll bid you g'day.

Happy Halloween from those of us here at Liloka Studios!

We hope you have a safe and fantastic Halloween. We'll be taking a break until November 10 so Mother Roshiya can help make costumes and enjoy Halloween with her kids, her anniversary with her husband, and maybe start packing for her move on January 13th! With the impending move we currently don't see any delays in Kitakaze no Yakusoku coming up--but things may change.

Me, on the other hands, will be stressing tf out at work and trying to figure out just what in the world I'm doing for Nanowrimo this year--I'm still not fully decided. Though I will be going to see Miyavi in concert with one of my best friends on the 27th (tonight) and I am looking forward to that.

We hope you all have a lovely Halloween and we'll see you on the 10th of November ♥

Hi there!

I apologize for the delay on this page--it was supposed to go up last week, but there were technical difficulties with the program we use and with the fact that I wasn't at home at all. I usually try and have something "Omake" to put up, but last week it just wasn't happening--I'll work on putting some stuff together to deal with that in the future. I'm currently running on Super E(xhausted) and Mother Roshiya is also in a similar boat with Halloween and all that fun going on.

As a heads up, next week marks the beginning of our Autumn Break and the next page of the comic proper will be posted on November 10, 2022.

I hope you have a fantastic Halloween and, if you're like me and embarking on Nanowrimo, I wish you happy writing, good plots, and enough inspiration for 50K next month. I'll be right there with you ♥
