(Once again a massive Thank You to Davonte for collecting the screen caps and artwork which made this tribute possible. Huge thank yous to the artists who created artwork for her as well.)

Some more of Yuuko can be found in these earlier tributes to xxxHolic series here:

I talked a little bit about Yuuko in her earlier bonus but I don't think that I went into a lot of details. Yuko is a mysterious sorceress known as the dimensional witch. She appears in the animes xxxHolic and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. She runs a shop in Tokyo where she grants wishes to anyone who she deems sincere enough. In order to grant wishes, she requires her clients a sacrifice equal to the wish itself. Watanuki, the male lead of xxxHolic for example has to become her servant in order for her to get rid of the evil spirits bothering him. Yuuko also has the ability to allow people to travel between worlds. Her personality is pretty interesting. She's very intelligent, has a lot of power but often seeks to act as a spectator when she can. She loves drinking alcohol and can be teasing and sarcastic to Watunuki but she is also shown to be kindhearted and caring. She tends to be pretty secretive in the series but it's shown to be because she doesn't want to worry her friends with her problems.

The animes xxxHolic, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and Card Captor Sakura tie in with one another. I've seen parts of Card Captor Sakura when it aired in the U.S.  but I haven't seen the other two series yet. I've been meaning to watch them both for a long time.

On a sidenote...I've been working on a new storyline for my Comic Book Interactive involving the villainesses of the DC universe. I'll probably talk more about this in a future post but if there any DC comic villainesses that you would like to see appear in the storyline let me know and I'll try to give them some attention.

Another thing I wanted to share with you guys was a new interactive story site that Stefan found.
http://infinite-story.com/
I haven't gotten the chance to test this site out yet and learn it's capabilities but for those that are interested in interactive stories, it might offer a good alternative to writing.com

Ok guys that's all for now, as always....more to come soon!!

  2. I must admit that I have a soft spot for gals with long and dark hair, and Yuuko is definitely a beauty in her own right! And let me just say that marking the which episode each cap comes from is a very nice touch. I've often wanted to search for these specific foot scenes myself and this makes that task much easier.

    Also it's good to see you working on CBWF again. There were a chapters that I really liked about that story, although so far the branch with Huntress and the kid in detention remains my favorite. If you'd like suggestions for DC villainesses, how's about Lady Shiva? No my love of gals with long dark hair who are also badass martial artists is TOTALLY not coloring my opinion as to why she should be featured. *cough*

    Anywho, I'll also give this Infinite Story site a try. I really like Writing.com but heavens only knows it'd be nice to do without quite so much advertisements.

    2. Thanks Hfar. I really have to give a lot of props to DaVonte for categorizing his caps so well that it was easy to set up the tribute this way. ^_^ That type of girl is really hot.

      :-) The Huntress storyline is my favorite too. O_O Lady Shiva is a good choice. I'll try to incorporate her in the story arc.

      Yeah I'll check it out too. I love WDC but lately they seem to be limiting the interactive option. They stopped allowing free accounts to create their own interactive stories and even the basic membership account has a 5 interactive limit. I'll still be happy to post there for as long as they allow me too but it might be good to have a backup option as well.

  3. Whaaaat! Okay, forgive me for being out of the loop but why the hell would WDC limit basic memberships to 5 interactives?! That's just so...stupid!

    1. They are probably motivated by financial reasons. All those interactives must take up a lot of web space and they may feel that they are not able to cover their server cost unless they start to charge for them. It could also be that they feel they could earn more money by charging for interactives too but I prefer to give them the benefit of the doubt.

      I personally think that they'll probably lose more money with this strategy because they aren't able to take in as much money via advertising and new members are less likely to join their site while older members would start to look elsewhere but that's just a guess on my part. ^_^; It definitely has the potential to slow the growth of their site though.

    2. Yeah, I can see that. The problem I see is that sites like WDC are dependent on user generated material for traffic, which is ultimately a large source of revenue. To limit the ability of artists to exhibit their art in any way and to try and squeeze money out the people who were generating your site's content for you for free is, in my opinion, short sighted and will ultimately lead to a bigger profit loss in the long term.

      ...So I guess what I'm saying is that I vehemently agree with you KSC.

    3. Yeah I completely agree with you as well Hfar. ^_^
