More art nouveau line art. This time the Golden Kingdom. This one I didn’t plan out so much so… yeah »; loads more little mistakes and bits i’m not 100% satisfied with, but I think it’s turned out pretty well. I kind of have a head-canon that the Shittenou were also in charge of various watches of the day, so that kind of comes up a bit in this. The assosiastions go as follows:

Zoicite: Dawn and early morning

Jadeite: Hours of full daylight

Kunzite: Evening and early night

Nephrite: Hours of full darkness

Of course, they all overlap at certain points, which kind of reflects their kinship. So Kunzite and Jadeite don’t really have too much to do with each other so they’re rather more formal with each other, and Jadeite and Nephrite have that younger-brother-older-brother sense of total opposites going on, so they’re prone to squabbling. Likewise, Zoicite gets on with Kunzite because they’re in similar positions, but he annoys Nephrite because he’s all perky and energetic when Nephrite is tired and about to down tools.

The only way Crystal could possibly disappoint me is if they don’t give me the baddest freaking badass Senshi/Shittenou showdown of all time. You didn’t kill Jadeite. You introduced Kunzite and Zoisite early. YOU BETTER DAMN WELL USE THEM. Give me a kickass final battle. Give me Venus/Kunzite nods. GIVE ME SHITTENOU/ENDYMION ANGST. JUST GIVE IT.

Just saw it… I JUST SAW IT! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS SCENE TO BE ANIMATED FOR YEARS.

From a short comic thing I did last year: Something Special by Anante 

I’m betting Jadeite is alive and part of the next Princess Diamond episode. PLEASE GIVE US MORE MARS AND JADEITE. PLEASE.

…although I’ve always wondered at Mar’s being the first to ‘murder’ a non-youma. Hmm.

One of the things I really loved about the live-action was seeing the interaction between the Shittenou, Mamoru, and the Senshi so i am delighted to see that Crystal is having them all stick around for a bit longer. It would definitely be interesting to see them act as foils to the Senshi.

This is a pretty big step from the manga, which so far Crystal has been rather closely adhering to so it will be interesting to see what other big changes it might have in store for us.
