Hikari no Tsubasa / Re: MKR DVD vs Bluray- Image heavy!
« on: June 19, 2017, 05:12:18 PM »
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)


Magic Knight shipping flail/spam/appreciation thread!

all your feels, be they long-winded essays or just flailing shrieks, go here! spam away!

Ship Apprecitation Thread Guidelines:
  • Keep content here PG-13. Feel free to leave any filth in Rarabai. You can link to higher-rated stuff, just mark it as such.
  • This is a feel-good thread. If you don't personally ship it you can still post here as long as what you have to say is positive (or at the very least neutral) towards the ship.
  • YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE IN THE POLL!!  I know you love all options, guys, but please pick your favorite.
  • But in general, feel free to babble about and explore the ideas of any and all combinations of our three lovely heroines being in wub.


this is only half-baked meta. if that. more like, it's just cake batter instead of a nicely decorated meta cake.

but I always thought this was interesting!  it's from the pic series where Hikaru is swimming with dolphins and Umi is in her ballet gear (IIRC?).  I always liked Hikaru's cause it shows her love of animals and the happy positive playful energy that dolphins have.  Umi's speaks about her poise and grace, both very "water" things, and IMHO kinda shows another side to her, a different kind of energy than her outbursts or her fencing (both the ballet and fencing show that she's very good at maintaining control and being aware of her body, something one wouldn't know from first meeting her in Cephiro...)

Fuu is participating in a run.  it's not uncommon for air-associated characters to be runners, it's something that is kind of part of that whole concept of the element.  but Fuu never struck me as much of a runner so this illustration was always kind of odd to me.  it's such an extroverted and freeing sort of energy to me, whereas she has a quiet countenance and seems to always be attentive and deliberate.  I think going for a run wouldn't help clear her mind like it does for many runners; I think she gets that better from something with more focus, stillness, like archery.  "free" is a pretty common air association but I never really applied it to her.

anyway, all that (christ, I'm almost as bad as Down) just to spew my actual headcanon about this.  I don't think she's much of a runner.  she enjoys jogging now and then for exercise, but not when it's hot/humid in the summer.  but once a year in the spring, she does something like a half-marathon (13mi/21km).  just to challenge herself and get herself out of her comfort zone.  I said in a previous meta on this thread, a lot of her growth in the s1 anime is about her getting out of that comfort zone where she knows what she's capable of.

though I guess in a couple years she should make it a full marathon to keep up that challenge :b

I could do a stateside one but I doubt I'll make it overseas :c

hoo boy. back in 2001 or so, I was toying with the idea of a Ferio backstory fic (it was incredibly dull of course). he had this partner (as in "in crime", not as in "in bed") named Lexas. she had the same basic outfit as him (which I've since noticed is a generic Cephiro outfit in s1) and looked similar to Fuu except with blue eyes. ugh. anyway, she died when Cephiro started to show tremors of crumblings before the Knights were summoned, and he was sad, etc. he noticed that Fuu reminded him of Lexas when he met them.

thankfully I never wrote any of it.

I mean, and I've also had OC-as-needed for fic scenes, but they absolutely do not matter.

lemme see what I can scrounge up going through my fic rec tag real quick~
specifically capturing the moment where he recognizes her. I'd think like 2-3 super simple panels kind of set-up (like your coffeeshop AU one of them!)
“Sorry?” Zazu said, accepting a hand to haul himself upright. He stumbled, head fizzing with static as he got to his feet, and mostly fell into Ascot’s chest and a startled hug. “Um. Whoops.”

“…You’re sure you’re alright?” Ascot asked, and Zazu could see the worried expression on his face clearly at this close distance.

“Fine! Honest! Headrush.” He leant into his friend for a moment more, the warmth comfortable – before he made himself step away and find that jacket, stomping his feet into his boots. “Okay. So, where do we go next?”
Umi kissing Fuu's cheek *v*

can I request from my own fic? I'm gonna.
hungover Ferio leaning on Fuu's shoulder while she softly plays the piano
drunk Caldina and Presea getting Ferio into trouble. just Caldina leaning on him would be awesome, Presea in the background snickering over the mess on Clef's desk...

dinosaurjam wanted to join but she totally missed the window to submit haha.

so she and I are gonna write something for each other this year.  so none of last year's "someone secretly write for suz if they wanna" since it wouldn't be fair for me, as the organizer, to pick for myself :p  also since we're sisters, neither of us will care too much if we're late or it's kinda sub-par or runs short.

next year I'll try to organize it better for fic and art.  I participated in one like that and it was simple enough, just a wee bit more work to assign people but I can't imagine it's much trouble especially since we're a small fandom only six people this year! :(

I've been discovering Amy Winehouse, especially her "Back to Black" album.  not my favorite ever but definitely great background music just to have something on.  (RIP)

I ended up writing around 1,328 yesterday!  my goal to keep me on track is 500 per day, since I'm trying to finish my NaNo from '12/'13...  so that's good!  reworked a scene that has been bothering me.   now I have to really dig into leading up to the big ~final climactic battle~ woo that I've been putting off for three years T^T;;  a lot of it is written but it's very chaotic; organizing it so it flows better is what's scaring me most haha.

YOU GUYS CAN DO IT!  let's finish these beasts that have been haunting us for years!

NaNoWriMo 2016 so far.

this ship honestly will have me waving flags once there is content for it heh.  like one of those ships where I don't contribute much but very happily consume the stuff that everyone else offers ;)

oh wait, I have this.  it's very sketchy and borderline PG13...  but I doodled this out like two years ago!  it's Ascot/Umi/Clef making out. I meant for them to be gettin' it on but since it's just a loose sketch, we can pretend I just didn't clothe them yet.  and they're just kissing and stuff so I don't think it's necessarily NSFW ;p

linked just in case~
