Blade Under Mask: Back Home

"Welcome home, Nae!"

Nae, who is known to her clients as 'Asamitsu', works as a maiko during the night, every night. Asamitsu's work begins in the early evening and lasts until dawn. In a single night, she brings her presence to varying engagements, which can range in size from private one-on-one sessions with customers to grand parties, where other geisha or maiko would join her as well.

Asamitsu returns home as the sun is rising, and is greeted by a cheerful (as the somber early morning light allows her to be!) Miyo, who helps Asamitsu get ready to become Nae again. Nae sleeps until noon and then resumes her daily activities until it is once again time to wear the mask that is Asamitsu, for another long night.

    I love the composition of this piece, it gives a lot of emotion to the characters outside of their expressions. Doesn't hurt that the characters are adorable as well.
