Very nice! Her Fox-form is cute. All the character animations could use more fluidity. Maybe more frames? Or you could use SPINE and animate 1 frame fluidly:

I just tried the Yeonma demo, I liked it. The art in this game is amazing. Reminds me a lot of Muramasa from Vanillaware. But animations, combat and overall speed feel sluggish, I hope you can improve in those aspects. I dont know if you have a release window in mind, or if the demo was an alpha etc. Please take your time, this game has a lot potential.
