I haven’t seen a Tumblr explosion of pictures yet, so here’s a preview of what’s inside the Animestyle issue with the YOI feature. I’m planning to upload better-quality pictures once I have decent light quality. (EDIT: Better quality here.)

Included in the issue:

-image of the pre-airing poster (the all-blue costume images on the website),
-Phichit’s group selfie on the ice with all skaters in costume
-Animestyle cover without text

-2-page character design sketches of Yuuri, Victor, and Yurio

-6-page interview with producer Otsuka Manabu

-part of the ep1 scene of Yuuri skating Stammi Vicino - step sequence into the camel spin with change of foot (60/117 key frames published in the magazine). 

-various comparisons of the key frame drawing and the finished anime frame

-key frames of what seems to be the opening scene of Yurio’s EX (23 frames)

-8-page interview between staff members (including character designer Tadashi Hiramatsu)
-a few key frames of Minako and Yuuko
-key frames of the beginning of Minami’s FS with little shimmy (25 frames)
-key frames of J.J.’s combination spin (frames 4-59)

For my forty-ninth Evangelion book review, here is Shin Seiki Evangelion Koutetsu no Girlfriend 2nd 4 Koma Manga Gekijou #3 (Neon Genesis Evangelion Girlfriend of Steel 2 4-Frame Comic Theater #3), published by Square Enix.  This is the third official anthology of drawings and parody comics by various artists that are based on the Girlfriend of Steel 2 video game.  (For more information on the first two anthologies, check out my forty-seventh and forty-eighth book reviews!)

The book is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of cute and fun visuals.  Also, the text has furigana, so if you can read some Japanese then you’ll have an easier time figuring out the kanji.  Best of all, since the video game allowed you to choose whether Shinji has romantic moments with Asuka, Rei, or Kaworu, there’s a little bit of all three in this book.  Yes, this is going to be another multiship-friendly review!

This anthology has a removable dust jacket, although the artwork hidden underneath is just a green version of the cover art.  As for what’s inside the book, the first few pages are drawings in full color, and then all of the comics and other illustrations are in black-and-white.  Here’s one of the full color pics that can be found in this book:

For my forty-seventh Evangelion book review, here is Shin Seiki Evangelion Koutetsu no Girlfriend 2nd 4 Koma Manga Gekijou (Neon Genesis Evangelion Girlfriend of Steel 2 4-Frame Comic Theater), published by Square Enix.  This book is an official anthology of drawings and parody comics by various artists, based on the Girlfriend of Steel 2 video game.  (To understand what the game is about, be sure to read my forty-fifth and forty-sixth book reviews first!)

This anthology is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of amusing visuals.  Also, if you can read some Japanese, you’ll be happy to know that the text uses furigana, which makes it a lot easier to decipher the kanji.  Yay!  The book also has a removable dust jacket, although the artwork hidden underneath is just a light blue version of the cover art.

The majority of this book is in black-and-white, but the beginning has a few drawings plus two comic strips that are in full color, such as this picture of Kaworu and Shinji:

You & I Chapter Three

Chapter Three

“Bee, I feel really underdressed.” Chris said. They had just left their hotel and were now on their way to meet Billie’s father and his wife for brunch.

He was surprised that Billie was dressed to the nines in a dark blue wiggle dress and heels, while he chose to wear his favorite dark blue cardigan, a t-shirt, and jeans. She swore that he looked fine, and even said that she loved that sweater on him. But he knew that she was lying because she always made fun of him for wearing it, and said that it made him look like an old man.

“But I thought this was just a simple brunch. Yet here you are all dolled up.”

Your patriarchal blessing is yours and yours alone. It may be brief or lengthy, simple or profound. Length and language do not a patriarchal blessing make. It is the Spirit that conveys the true meaning. Your blessing is not to be folded neatly and tucked away. It is not to be framed or published. Rather, it is meant to be read. It is to be loved. It is to be followed. Your patriarchal blessing will see you through the darkest night. It will guide you through life’s dangers. Your patriarchal blessing is to you a personal Liahona to chart your course and guide your way.
