SW: Fuso Map by ThanyTony SW: Fuso Map by ThanyTony
I dislike working on lands with TONS of Islands, it is so different from real Japan Islands that I chose to put the regions an not the prefectures on this map, it'd have been pretty confusing to do.
Also, there are a bunch of Islands out there that have no name to my knowlodge and they don't exist in real life so....I didn't name them, be my guess and suggest what they could be.

Anyway, Enjoy!

Oh those.
While it is true that magic exists in the SW universe (It is given a more scientifical aproach thought) in the form of the familiars that make contracts with the Witches.
The Mythological beings, specially the more monsterlike are implied to be Neuroi (The main antagonistic force in the series) in the SW movie's intro there is a montage of various depictions of witches across story and you see greek, roman, japanese and medieval art paintings where you see soldiers fighting dragons, hydras, gigant spiders and they all have Neuroi patterns.

So yes, they exist, but they are just Neuroi in other form.

That could be an Awesome universe to Live... :D

Neuroi seems to 'adapt' their timeline, so have a Dragon Shape explains many things


Thanks a lot for answering :)

Their have been some indicator in some of the cannon material that, aside from animal spirits that act as witches familiars and the Neruoi taking the forms of demons, monsters and creatures of myth and legend that their may be some number of other creatures in the witches world, but admittibly most of the sources aren't clear or definitive as to wither this is the case or if so to what degree.

The only other entities in the witches world of that exist with certainty besides animal familiar spirits and Neruoi "Kaii"/"Rätsel" are the Tonttu; or "Sana Elf"/"Sana Fairy"; a little spirit creature that takes care of the sauna that are generally harmless but tend to become mischievous and play pranks on people who don't keep sauna's clean. They are native to Suomois and frequently live in Suomish saunas out of both a preference and connection they have with saunas, though they can wander and occupy other areas if a Sauna isn't found nearby.

An alternate world?
There is no such a 南洋岛 on the East China Sea.

Concerning demographics, I would imagine that the percentage of Fusoans would be much higher.

I made it because I thought that since it's more open then real Japan, there would be a lot more foreing people in it.

It seems to be a very interesting look at the island nation of Fuso.

Interesting thing that I wanted to mention is that Fuso holds a bit of territory on the Russian mianland called Urajio (consisting of real life Vladivostok). In the 1937 Fuso Sea Incident Manga it's a busy port city with merchants, traders, a vast market and serving as a stop along a major supply line and trade route across "The Empty Desert Region" (consisting of the majority of Eastern Cjina, Estern Mongolia and all of North Korea).

I thought I'd share this, since the Fuso map reminded me a bit of what I read of the Fuso Sea Incident manga and I found the insight regarding Fuso, it's status as a trading power as well as some of the geography in the region to be quite fascinating.

I think you did the map wrong, the main islands (Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu) are basically the same, the lines have been really badly done which makes them look like Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku joined but they are not. Also the islands that extend from Kyushu to Formosa are called the Ryukyu Islands not Kyushu but anyway good work.

I traced the map and not made any modification and they look REALLY close together, as for the Islands, I imagined Kyushu split from the main set of Islands and that's what I tried to portray there, but if you're an expert on the subject then I'll take your word, I'll have it fixed it up.

However please...next time if you're just basically gonna write a very critical comment that is 95% "You did it ALL wrong" toward someone DO NOT add a sugarcoat at the end, Some people find it very insulting, I find that very insulting, I can take your criticism and use it to modify the map to portray it more accurately, I am always willing to do that as dA gives you that option, so please never do that again, I am not gonna cry if you tell me I made a mistake with the map, just say what you want to say and I'll do the rest.

Sorry, I didn't meant to be insulting. I will heed your advice and not sugarcoat my more critical comments.
Sorry again
