When I first stumbled upon the wiki I looked at the Classic Yo-kai page, I found it extremely interesting that Yo-kais are actual things in Japanese folklore, Tublabba and Venoct surprised me the most!
Thank you! I had a passion for this subculture for years, and the YW series was the gift of a lifetime for me. I'm actually an artist and character designer, and I plan to put out a youkai game of my own someday.
(Incidentally, the manga Neko Musume Michikusa Nikki features a youkai girl of the same species as Tublappa. And she's adorable!)
I know, right? And funny how the protagonists are the same species as Jibanyan, Komasan and Komajiro.
I'll be sure to show you some of my stuff when I get the chance. For now I can tell you I've drawn the equivalents of Swosh, Walkappa, Tengu, Gargaros, Frostail, Kamaitachi, Contrarioni, Yao Bikuni and others I forget right now. And I have a decent idea for "Dulluma" too...
