Japanese Illustrator Highlight: Inugami Kira 狗神煌

Ok, so you KNEW this was going to happen, so it did. A Japanese Illustrator Highlight on Inugami Kira. Maybe I’ve already given you some little tidbits here and there on what I was going to say but YES. We probably did a highlight already this one time, so we’re going to do it again. ROUND 2, BABY. Bring it on! Inugami Kira = ALL DAY.

Due to a small suggestion by SnooSnoo, maybe this is what had me on tip toe with how I wanted to finish this highlight before this month ended. So I kinda started early to get a fresh start off the landing because I’m in the talking mood today, and it’s kilacco. Why not? She’s a nice person, and another thing, she’s talkative~

Of course, meaning I’m going to have to look through her pixiv to showcase some of her illustrations and what not. Oh, they’re always better on pixiv. I don’t have to look through as much!~



Monthly Synopsis: July is nearly ending~

A simple synopsis for today, yes, July is ending. That also means my blog is going to grow to be a month old. YES, you got that right. A MONTH OLD. Oh such is the consistency of blogging a hobby that’s so fun in it’s own right. To share my thoughts to the devoted readers on my blog~ (or ARE you devoted readers?). Anyway, as I am writing this, I’m drinking a strawberry banana smoothie. Quite chilly at the moment as it runs down my throat, but nevertheless a refreshing dessert~


Amuchi? Where did Amuchi go? Σ(´°o°;)

So you’re all wondering where the heck I went for 2 days straight, aren’t you? Yeah, I noticed. My views have been dying, but not because of the wasted fruit that I had started my blog out of. Someone told me that I put in quite a lot of time into my blog which he/she did appreciate, but said that I wasn’t keeping up with my social networking, and actually, I’ve taken a break on social networking and instead, once again I pursued what I desired the most with my significant other, Iggy. Oh, yeah, and Ichi-chan always tags along.

Lemme cover what’s been happening over 2 days, concisely (though it’s never concise), because I can cover what happens in either a short period of time or a long period of time, and I don’t want to lose all of you people that are extensively viewing the blog as fruit and devotion of the Japanese Illustrator bonds and interests you share with me! So, 2 days ago…


Japanese Illustrator Highlight: Ryohka 涼香

Ach! Iggy and I are annoyed to DEATH that Hoshizora E Kakaru Hashi is delayed ONCE AGAIN. Of course, that doesn’t stop me from highlighting this awesome friggin’ artist. But who are we kidding! FUDGE, I can’t PLAY Hoshikaka that early this summer! Ugh, it is going to get in the way of schoolwork and what not.

Anyway, what’s up. Amure-kun here.  Another one to highlight this awesome artist out of the blue, because I was bored. Really. I highlight artists because they’re for one, have cool personalities, and another one, they draw. I’m a big art fan, so don’t tackle me on the reason why I didn’t play Hoshizora No Memoria because the cover art didn’t exactly impress me. Ok, fine go tackle me. I was going to go plan to do it later, anyway, but Amure-kun sometimes is busy, what not with his 18 tabs open, Tweetdeck, and also MSN. Eat on it, yo.

My computer never takes a break. Speaking of which… *inserts page break below.*


Sandbox and the Japanese Illustrators List, 500 hits

Within what seems like a week already, Amure-kun’s blog has already gained 500 hits. That’s amazing. Seems that the scheme must already be working. ^^;; Anyway, Yeah, lately, I’ve been doing Japanese Illustrator Highlights, since that has always been a thing for me. So, what have I done lately to my blog?


Japanese Illustrator Highlight: Mitsui Mana みついまな

*falls over* … … … *after a while, rises, sits, and collects my papers*… *ahem* … Hello everyone. It’s Amure-kun again. Guess what. Mitsui Mana is somehow… in my perspective, one of the highest aspiring moe artists around. You might not have heard of her, but if you haven’t and you are reading this… now you do. So, *does a gesture with my fingers* Let’s get this started.


Japanese Illustrator Highlight: Izumi Tsubasu 和泉つばす

Before I start writing, let me say that this is my first time actually doing something of an artist ‘highlight’, because I wanted to something out of the original, and maybe if this picks up in my head, I’ll get used to choosing every so often a Japanese Illustrator to highlight. Right now, I want to highlight my favorite artists, and as soon as those are complete, maybe I’ll get into the newer doujin artists ^_^;; There are a lot of artists out there. I only want to cover the ones… I probably see in a more ambitious light. So let’s do this.


Feeling quite better today~

As the title say, I’m feeling a bit better today ^^;; maybe because it’s the morning? Well, anyway, yesterday I hadn’t done a lot except finally sleep early on one of those days.

Like I said, we all have the days when we’re tired. Guess what. That was my 13th post on a SUNDAY to be exact. Maybe it was bad luck for me, lol. But I at least got some things down so far on the Japanese Illustrator Twitter Project. Added a couple new ones today. I’m still on the search for even more of them out there, because there are so much @_@;; I might need more help with this twitter project to be exact xD come on guys, help me out here! I don’t care if it’s a shoujo, shonen, josei, seinen illustrator just send me it, I’ll add it to the list. If you’re reading right now, then good. Now go on the search, help a guy here. D8




You’re probably like “Yeah, yeah, tell us. What exactly happened, chief? Oh nothing. Just the old day on twitter, but if you noticed anything recently…”


Now now, if you guys don’t know who Inugami Kira (necotoxin, kilacco) is, lemme give you a short synopsis (probably damn long) on who she is.

Inugami Kira is one of the illustrators for Dengeki Moeoh, a special moe oriented edition of Dengeki Daioh magazine for seinen enthusiasts and what not. She’s done work in:

Inugami Kira is most known for doing the CG illustrations on Supreme Candy. The best part is that she does 2 of the best characters IMO in Supreme Candy. Tsuyuki Yuuri, a blue haired girl wearing some sort of a Usagimimi cap, and Hasegawa Jako (spoilers not included).

If you really want to read more about Supreme Candy, I suggest you read M3rryweather’s review of Supreme Candy here. You look at his page, Jako at the header, Jako as the website icon. I wouldn’t be proud to ping a 2 year old review, m3rry, but I’d be proud to show people that this really is a kickass visual novel and also that the CG in here is beautiful. Seriously.

So now you’re probably wondering: “Well, this artist seemed to be the apex of the discussion you guys were having when she tweeted you back. Why are you guys so excited over this certain mangaka?”

Simply put. We’re really Otaku. We’re fanatics about it. Ignis and I are the equivalent of your nerds who keep a huge collection of image scans and CG rips from moe imouto and flippin’ stick it into our HDD as soon as we see it. Kawaii moe picture? Download. Ecchi moe picture? Download. Beautiful CG packs? Download.

The one thing that we both have in common is the practice of love for just this certain Visual Novel (Supreme Candy) AND it’s art. Particularily Inugami Kira’s art because if you take a look at her art, she’s amazing. Seriously, you can’t beat that quality and speed of artwork, so that’s why I consider her to be extremely skilled in the arts of moe, bishoujo, and what not. So when we fanbusted… we… we flipping fanbusted. Here’s the legitimate proof. Twitters read from up (oldest) to down (newest) I worked hard for you guys. 😀 Color-coded and bolded kilacco’s tweets. ^_^


The Japanese Illustrator Twitter Project

SO! We’re off to a swell start. Yeah, if you watched the recent tweets, you’re aware what’s happening! YES YOU ARE D:


Ne, I have to say congratulations to myself. This is the first post EVER that hasn’t been about ANYTHING IN GENERAL (Which is the motto, I daresay, really.) but doesn’t mean I’ll stop talking about ANYTHING IN GENERAL :3 and that INCLUDES being in this post.

I decided to call it something… classic. D: The “Japanese Illustrator Twitter Project”. Ok Fine, it’s dumb. But it WORKS. Yes it does~ Simple enough as it is, it is a gathering place for you to get your news feed on all the different illustrators, wherever they are in the freaking world, because it’s twitter. And twitter is a social app.  Meaning you’ll stalk into their personal life. Not really. Fanboy/Fangirl. ;D

The stuff is all there, if you want to help out, message me, blah blah blah, and yeah no visuals. I’m sorry, go chew me if you hate me :< but it’s not there this time because Amure-kun is quite lazy at the moment.  Besides, whatcha need visuals for? It’s a twitter project 🙂 Want visuals? Go visit the twitter list, ladies and gentlemen fanboys,fangirls.

This also basically means I’m cutting out on my social time but it is SO WORTH IT. Fanboying FTW. It is our soul, our regime, our pride. Ignis-san, you deserve that merit. Totally. Now post here before the prophecy forever doth say that your name will change once again. And the prophecy better change my name back. I’m brokenhearted. T_T Know the story,  that I was destined without meaning once the name LonelyAmure was taken away from me. *cries*

Yeah, the prophecy stated that my name now had to be “constantly—ed”. Such a mean prophecy. We were making a joke about that in the LPW when Sjie was named “the 3rd glove” and I was that name so what I would say was… “safe —e”

Something notable from that conversation:


Now, now, if you are THAT NOSY and have a SH account (if you don’t, say I referred you there ;3 Amure-kun loves the recommends), you can actually READ the conversation D:


If you’re too lazy to sign up, really, then I’ll quote some excerpts here for you. ^_^ courtesy of Amure-kun thinking that Sjie is a mean, mean person.

Here. Too lazy to quote. Click the link~


Minitokyo has been dead lately. I’ve kinda been at a standstill for posting there, not too very shabby, I think. ~_~; But maybe it will wake up again because I think it’s mainly school and preperation that’s stopping everyone from socializing. Sometimes feels like a desert there, but you know Animepaper is worse 😮 those threads get ancient.

Anyway, that’s concluding this post, and enjoy reading. *sorry there’s no visuals this time, but what am I supposed to do, lol!*

P.S. Me and Iggy FANBOYED TODAY over the fact that kilacco was following us back. Oh, man. We were CRAZY at the time. I LOVED THAT LOL. You can totally comment about it, Iggy. I so don’t mind. ;3
