Sorry, another shorter one this week. It’s tough work keeping up with all these new shows! Enjoy what I’ve got for you, though! And if you really want to see something cool, go look up the Garo OP on YouTube. Very, very cool-looking stuff.
From the #12 spot in the Male Demographic ratings on October 4th. While the floating female musicians are cool and the character designs nice, it was the setting of this piece that really attracted my eye. I guess you might call this steampunk, but it reminds me more of a dystopian fantasy with all the floating architecture. As I’ve said before, I don’t know much about art, but I think I can safely say that this image has really nice composition with the spacing of the characters and the sunrise/sunset being framed within the arch.
I knew I wanted to get a new series’ fanart on here this week, but I wasn’t even close to brave enough to go hunting for The Fruit of Grisaia fanart, so you get Akatsuki no Yona instead. The fact that Son-woo is in this fanart makes me suspect that he’ll be a major player in the future episode of the anime. Anyways, I chose this picture because the character designs are a bit different from what I saw in the anime, particularly Yona, who’s much more shoujo (reminds me of some of the Revolutionary Girl Uterna images I’ve seen) in this picture, contrasting with how moe she is in the anime.
In case you didn’t know (and you should, because it’s on my top shows list), Kill Me Baby is one of my all-time favorite anime comedies. In fact, I have a cropped Kill Me Baby fanart (not this one) as the lock screen on my iPod. The whole show has a derpy, childish sense of humor that really works well for me, and I appreciate the picture-book/watercolor aesthetic this picture has to it. I also like how Sonia’s hair matches with the sun’s color and Yasuna’s hair matches with the clouds. It gives the whole pictures a sort of unity.
I don’t like Saber much myself (and I find it terrifying how often she is both idolized and fetishized—but that’s a different topic), but I know a lot of other people do, so here you go. This one’s kind of on the border of how NSFW I want to go with these posts, but it’s such an active, flowing image that I pushed the boundaries a bit. There’s just so much going on in this picture it’s almost hard to take it all in at once.
