art by arina tanemura

Tanemura Arina: I drew this time’s celebration art too late so there’s a bonus…

Tanemura Arina: Who is that misterious ninja behind Mitsuki, Yamato, and Nagi’s backs!? is he an enemy? or an ally? what happens to the cooler? and the pants? find out in LalaDX7, “Cooler and Pants”, to be released on June 10th!!

※This is just a bonus image. It doesn’t have anything to do with the contents of the manga.

I’ve had the sketch for this sitting on my compute for over two years, and in a fit of procrastination I decided to finally finish it. 

Arina Tanemura’s works were the epitome of my middle school days, and I love all her works so much.  She honestly has the most beautiful manga art.  Full Moon wo Sagashite was one of the first manga I ever read, and is my favorite work by Tanemura-sensei.  

On February 10th, 2017, the first of two volumes of an IDOLiSH7 mini photo book will be released in LaLaDX featuring art drawn by Arina Tanemura. The images are remakes of illustrations Arina sensei drew back in 2015 and posted on Twitter of the IDOLiSH7 characters in the rain. Each mini photo book will include six A5 size images. The first volume will feature Iori, Riku, Ryunosuke, Sogo, Tamaki, and Tenn. Stay tuned!

fujishimakosuke: I feel like drawing more megane characters.
arrinacchi: Please do!!! You must!!! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))


  1. sumimasen can mean thank you or sorry, I’m guessing the former here
  2. 1 Oct is apparently megane day
  3. arrinacchi is Arina Tanemura sensei, artist of Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne
  4. fujishimakosuke is Kōsuke Fujishima, the character designer of many Tales of series, including Abyss.

It’s all on instagram, but just because everyone’s posting theirs here too, I’ll follow the trend. 

Artist challenge meme, I drew Juvia in others’ styles: clymacs | luciasatalina | blamedorange | blanania | kkumri | and lastly Arina Tanemura-sensei style because she is my shojo mangaka idol

Thanks for letting me butcher your styles, and then graciously complimenting me. Y’all are too talented and too kind.
