So, this is a new series idea I’m trying out called “First Shoot”. The premise here is that I run a poll for my higher-end Subscribers (except for this first one, which was open to all subs) with a list of characters who are not in the Studio yet, but would make good fits. The winner of the poll then gets to appear in a two-panel introductory comic, like you see here, with the second panel featuring them performing with a random existing member of the Studio. The partner is truly random, too, selected from the full list of characters I’ve drawn before. Toi Kuji was the lucky partner for Yor, which I think is interesting. Aesthetically I think he makes a good match for her, but obviously the Sarazanmai boys are usually just used for yaoi content. I figured Toi would want to give her some advice, since he’s appeared a number of times in my work, and I thought maybe it’d play well into Yor’s concerns over her performance.
