    I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless. Here’s what I do

    Date clan 2stronk. Also we better get the mothgirl (male) as a guardian spirit, I was miffed we didn’t get it in the main game.

    >mothgirl (male)
    Are you implying what I think you’re implying
    Because don’t remember this feminine spirit ever being described as male.

    I am implying what you think I’m implying :^)

    Thinking about it, we might be waiting for Sanada’s DLC for our mothtrap spirit though (I think Sanada was Yoshitsugu’s son-in-law or something). I am assuming the dragon in the background is Seiryu and is Date’s spirit guardian. I know we’re getting Odachi as a new weapon type as well, I really hope we get the dual pistols as well (it is Date after all).

    But what gave you the idea it’s male?

    It looks like a boy? But also a girl. I’m not actually sure what it is, but it looks like it could be either. All I know is that I want it.

    Pretty sure it’s female. Ni-Oh doesn’t seem to play that game. You, disappointingly, can’t even change your character model to any of the female ones, only the men.
