Tsukinosagi’s Journey

Ersatzverse – Tsukinosagi’s Journey, Page Three

I’m happy to get this page out so soon after the last one. Our next couple of pages will be mostly sex action, but they might also take longer, so I can’t say for sure when to expect page four. For this page, though, we jump straight to our heroines seeking some advice from the nearby oracle Karasu before they truly begin their journey.


Also, here is the Q&A video I did for Subscribers last month, for anyone interested:

Ersatzverse – Tsukinosagi’s Journey, Page Two

The first page of this comic went public in February of 2021… I’d chosen this format for this comic in order to make it easier to get pages out faster, and while it’s probably true that the hours spent on this page were less than those I’d spend on a normal comic page, clearly that didn’t translate into the page getting out any faster. Clearly the problem is more how lowly I’ve prioritized this series. While the Ersatzverse does have its fans, I can’t help but feel like the overall demand is pretty low, so I always choose other projects to focus on.
For those who don’t remember, the Ersatzverse is a universe constructed of “knockoff” versions of characters from other franchises. I chose Tsukinosagi to focus on for this story, and I’d originally planned to do a slow burn with her story. I wanted to show her going on a handful of normal adventures, maybe a bit ecchi but not overtly pornographic. The hope was to build some tension before things got spicier, but now I feel like that’s probably not really an option. The third page of this comic should come out faster than this one did, but nonetheless I’m going to move faster and cut to the chase more going forward so we can get some hardcore action before 2030.

Ersatzverse – Tsukinosagi’s Journey, Page One

So here’s page one of a project I’m calling “Tsukinosagi’s Journey”. I wanted to tell some stories set in the Ersatzverse, but I didn’t want to do a full-blown comic or anything, as I thought that would take up too much of my time. I settled on this, a sort of half-way between a regular comic and prose, which will hopefully be possible to update with some regularity without interrupting my normal comics work too much. I’m considering trying a few different approaches with this Ersatzverse concept, possibly there’ll be just regular fiction set in this universe or standalone one-page comics or pics, I don’t know. For now, though, Tsukinosagi’s adventure will be chronicled like this. In this page we also get to meet the mother and father of Tsukino and her brothers. They’re also both knock-offs like everyone in this universe, with the dad being named Inamo Maimuni and the mom being Furumi Maimuni. This is probably the only time we’ll see either of them, their death and haunting really just serving as the genesis to Tsukino leaving her home to search for her brothers. I have a number of misadventures planned for this young lady, hopefully you’ll get to see them all eventually.
I don’t know when the next page will be, but hopefully it won’t be too far off from now. There will probably be other Ersatzverse stuff dabbled in by then, but we’ll see.
