Comments for Seasons of the Sword http://risuko.net Kunoichi Tales (Teen Historical Aventure) Wed, 30 Jan 2019 19:28:51 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on Bright Eyes Preview: The Torii Arch by Risuko http://risuko.net/bright-eyes-preview-the-torii-arch/#comment-644 Wed, 30 Jan 2019 19:28:51 +0000 http://risuko.net/?p=2024#comment-644 Thanks so much for the feedback — and sorry for not seeing this until now!

Since one of the main characters in the series — Lady Chiyome — is almost always addressed with the honorific, I made the stylistic choice in the first book to switch from the English version to the Japanese — Chiyome-sama — and back. I did this partially to keep things from being too repetitious, and partially to introduce the Japanese to the reader. (This is a series aimed at teens, not all of whom have been exposed to Japanese traditions and language.)

In this book, then, I chose to do the same thing. Do you find it too annoying?

Uh… Doesn’t it sound odd that you use Lord Takeda in one sentence and Takeda-sama in the other? There’s no reason for the switch.

I gave an interview today where I was asked which was my favorite character. I felt guilty about it, but I had to say that it was Mieko.

Thanks for your feedback!

Yeah. Poor Masugu. He’s a glutton for punishment. 🙂

I am having a blast exploring Kuniko and Mieko’s… partnership.

And my thought was that Masugu, being a Takeda warrior, might have heard what Lady Chiyome

It doesn’t take long to get immersed in the world again does it. Mieko is such a compelling character. Funny again how easy it is for women to pass unnoticed in this setting. How easy it is to fool them into thinking the assassins were men. Clever Chiyome.
