as I've gotten older I've learned to consume my media more objectively and generously, and it's opened up a lot of characterization for me.  I shot my mouth off a bit early in the Hikaru Discussion thread, years ago, but I've learned how to reconcile the differences in her character and what annoyed me about it, I learned to "read" her differently.

I've also gotten less "fangirly" and more "emotionally compromised", especially reading the end of the manga.  I've been with Hikaru, Umi and Fuu for 17 years now, and they mean a lot to me and, honestly, to who I am.  I feel their feels.

it's just so frustrating how the anime took one of the most important Themes of the manga story and slapped it in the face.  the rejection of self-sacrifice and Hikaru promising to herself that there will be no more meaningless deaths...  then they off Eagle to simplify the love triangle and for cheap emotional pull.  they could've easily had Eagle decide to back off Hikaru and Lantis romantically, that could be so moving if done well, but the writing in the anime is a bit clunky in general IMHO.

Hikaru was not willing to step over Eagle's body in order to assume the position of Pillar, she was ready to die with him first.  and she would've done that for anyone, and that is so important to her character, and how Umi and Fuu are the only reason she survived?  god the whole "friendship is magic" theme of the series comes to a head there.

And maybe even monsters might appear more if she's fearful or something.

Also, does Cephiro gets sad when she leaves???

L8 but oh my god I love this.  if I ever get back into writing/fic/drabbles there is some prime stuff right there.  I'm gonna be thinking about this :0

Himitsu no Kimochi / Re: Alcyone: A hated character in MKR

Like, we know she learned magic from Clef to protect Emeraude, is that how they met? Other than maybe thinking hes good-looking, just what draws her to him enough that she wants to die with him? Did he ever do anything nice for her? Did someone else hurt her? Is this the latest in a string of bad relationships (or non-relationships) that just makes her give up hope for ever having a good one? Has she always had these kind of obsessive tendencies?

there's some damn good fic in there, especially the first one.

I think Umi is more privileged than "spoiled". she's a little full of herself sometimes but she's not snooty; she's very generous and friendly.

I slept til 11am! I usually get up at 6:30-8:00 for work and even on my days off I still am wide-awake at that time (this day was always foretold by The Elders and it's finally come) but I've been so busy the last few days that I just couldn't pull myself out of bed. actually I stayed in bed til almost 12:30... it was so nice haha

I'm currently a bit obsessed with Cut To the Feeling by Carly Rae Jepsen. 

Jam and I are too XD
like she said on her tumblr, it's just the perfect formula for happy feelgood earworm pop music!

Hikari no Tsubasa / Re: MKR DVD vs Bluray- Image heavy!

I'm not sure if the VHS covers are her or not.  a lot of similar hallmarks but am not sure, so!
Well, most of her artwork was recycled to make the trading cards, VHS and LD covers (Japanese releases), promo posters and and in magazines. 
The original USA VHS release also used her illustrations.  You can see some of them in her artworks.

thank you! I wondered about the US VHSes but wasn't sure! I think those are some of her best MKR illustrations!
and thanks for the info about the Discotek artwork, I had no idea who did that one.

this is awesome! thank you so much for all the work you've put into this, it's a great resource. is it cool if I link this on the FYR Tumblr to share with the wider fandom over there?


Also, I really wish that those title page pictures of Autozam, Chizeta, and Fahren had been included one of the artbooks. (And I'm including North Side and South Side in that, too.)

oh my gosh, yes. I've never seen these before!

Ishida Atsuko is talented but she's lazy haha. 

she did a lot of s2 as well as is famous for Shamanic Princess.  if you look at the style of the latter, you'll recognize the style from the s2 anime!  I actually have a tumblr post drafted about this (since I have seen so many people complaining about the new artwork) but didn't know if anyone gave a crap so it's just been collecting dust.

(lots of images ahead, just DLing from Tumblr)







^ if you compare the tighter, more detailed images to the looser ones, you can kind of see how the current artwork is sort of in-between.

AFAIK all the current promo/box artwork is done by her and it's usually pretty loose like this.  she did the Crusade cards too.  I'm not sure what else she's up to, or if her work on other current projects is in this style.




just some quick links to a handful of well-known MKR illustrations she's done that I happen to have easily tagged:

I'm not sure if the VHS covers are her or not.  a lot of similar hallmarks but am not sure, so!

you can see how much her artwork varies.

(((correct me if I've mistakenly attributed an illustration to her! I tried to pay attention and use my google-fu to double-check!)))

my personal favorite is Umi/Fuu!  I just really adore their friendship and am more than happy to consider it becoming ~more~

I actually started this thread because I wanted to plug @karinrodd's Umi/Fuu comic that she did based on a fic I wrote (!!!???!!?!! aaaaa)
