I haven't seen how the Nikoli puzzles of this genre tend to look like, but I expect mine are a bit different. I prefer to keep the amount of clues as low as possible and make the open areas resolve themselves. I figure my puzzles tend to be on the harder side because of that. I like how it turned out. I was planning on doing a 1-2 antisymmetric clue pattern, except the 3 forced itself and I liked how the puzzle went till that point. So this is how it ended up.
