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.*
*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.
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.
HECK YEAH! WE. ARE. SO. AWESOME!!!! OH MY GOD. OH. MY. FLIPPINGRABBITJUMPINGBEARBLASTINGJAWDROPPING GOD.
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…”
OH, HECK YEAH! INUGAMI KIRA TWEETED US BACK!!! IN ENGLISH!!! IN. FREAKING. ENGLISH. INUGAMI KIRA!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT. I CAN FINALLY DIE HAPPY NOW!!! THIS SO GOES ON MY FAVORITE TWEETS, DUDE. TOTALLY. I SO HAD TO BLOG ABOUT THIS. THIS SHOULDN’T EVEN BE CONSIDERED ANYTHING IN GENERAL. SHOULD BE CONSIDERED SOMETHING LIKE VIP INTO CONSIDERATION!!! HECK YEAH!!!
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:
- Frequent Dengeki Moeoh Magazines
- H2O: Footprints in the Sand artbook & manga
- √After and Another artbook
- Illustrator for 2 characters in Supreme Candy (Tsuyuki Yuuri and Hasegawa Jako) and a good portion of the artbook Supreme Candy official visual memories artbook
- Seitokai No Ichizon Light Novel Illustrations
- Ebiten Special Book
- Some more stuff that I don’t really know because I can’t read Japanese *sadface*.
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. ^_^
