Tsukimi Salad by JohnSu Tsukimi Salad by JohnSu
Tsukimi Salad (lit. "Moon-viewing Salad")

Tsukiyo is a Lunarian from the mochi-producing colony of the moon. She moved down to earth after highschool in order to pursue a career in making and serving tea (on account of her rice-phobia). After obtaining her certificate, she set up shop in the forest where nobody goes to drink tea except for this weird walrus-looking thing. Anyhow, one day the Sawnosed Baron busts into her unsustainable business and announces he is taking it over as the base of his operations, and commands his adorable little underlings to seize the property, but Tsukiyo's like "Please don't," and puts up a fight. Meanwhile, the walrus guy is drinking his fish-juice tea and says "Whoah, that's a nice action shot" and takes a picture and uploads it to his blog, and I'm surfing the internet and I see this picture and I'm like "Oh wow, this can't be a photo, it looks so anime," so I download it, slap my name on it and then submit it to deviantArt as my own work. "No one must ever know" I say to myself from my darkened room, illuminated only by the monitor's glow.

and not a walrus' camera.

So based upon her rice phobia, is Tsukimi Salad also a mochi-maker?

No hey wait up though.  Is the salad viewing the moon, or does the salad help whoever eats it view the moon?

Or is the moon viewing the salad?

This is all so... voyeuristic i can't handle it oh god

Well, it's a Salad for Moon-viewing, so it's to be eaten while viewing the moon.

This is what happens when you don't say "Please", Mr. Baron.  I hope you've learned your lesson.

I don't suppose the Walrus left the name/address of his apparently rather frequented tea shop, or at least left direction? And what's the best tea that she can make? I'm sure it's all wonderful either way.

Her best tea is coffee, which she insists (violently) is "bean tea."

This has such a kirby feel to it,
and is she actually very furry and wearing armor to try and hide it?

Any way, the word tsukimi and mochi pounding is very nostalgic, thanks.

Amazing as always, Mr. Johnsu. Nuff said. I'd say keep up the good work, but that sounds too imposing, so I'd like it if you kept up the good work, but if you decide to stop, that'd be okay too.

How could anyone attack villains that cute? They don't even have arms to actually seize with.
Also, I'm wondering if the fur on her armor is actually her fur.
Lovely work as usual. Though the leg sticking out looks a little off to me.
