Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo 巌窟王

Gankutsuou is an anime loosely based on the novel The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. It tells the story of Albert Morcerf, a young aristocrat who happens to befriend a wealthy nobleman, The Count of Monte Cristo, through a series of bizarre events. Fascinated by the Count’s charm, Albert invites him to meet his friends and family, all of whom happen to be part of the upper class society of Paris, France. Unfortunately, little does Albert realize that the Count has ulterior motives in mind.

Initially, I was going to draw one of my OCs, but he gets enough of my attention as is (sorry Joshua). So I thought, “Why not the amazing and beautiful Thomas Sanders?” @thatsthat24 I had been wanting to for a long time. After seeing the Sanders Sides get animated, I really wanted to see what a manga influenced art style might look like (and have an excuse to draw him with a bunch of roses because he deserves all of them~ ;__;)

I couldn’t decide which colored version I liked more, so have both.

So on the Mystic Messenger Amino app there was a contest called #MCRebooted where you had to re-draw the MC the way you imagined her to be :D I was SO excited to participate in it!!!!

(1.) For the the first one I kinda drew MC as a persona of me, and thought it would be funny to draw Unknown breaking into the apartment. It was the perfect excuse to draw him <3

(2.) For the second entry I drew a darker-skinned MC and I was so happy to do her hair and color scheme! <3 I thought it would be funny to draw something based off of the characters always asking MC if she’s eaten anything. Usually I say no. :’D

ghoulilac  asked:

do you know some mangas with amazing art and hot male characters (>~<) such as tsubaki-chou lonely planet, aoharaido, heroine shikkaku, haru matsu bokura, suki ni naranai yo senpai or mikami-sensei no aishikata?

Erm, I’m guessing you like more of the recent manga art styles… xD Like I consider Keishichou Tokuhanka 007 to have good art, but I’m not sure if it suits your tastes so I’ll recommend more recent series (from those released in 2012 to now, since a 5 year gap seems pretty recent);;

A Love Letter

For all its shortcomings towards the end of its run, xxxHOLiC still holds a special place in my heart.

If you’re not familiar with it, xxxHOLiC is a manga series written and illustrated by CLAMP, a prolific, all-female group of Japanese manga artists who have been creating since the mid-eighties. (Their body of work includes classics such as Magic Knight Rayearth, Angelic Layer, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.)

The story follows Watanuki Kimihiro, a high school student who strikes a deal with a witch. If he becomes her assistant, she’ll take away the power that leaves him plagued with visions of ghosts and monsters. But because it’s such a big wish, he’ll have to work for her for…a while. Maybe forever. So he becomes the witch’s cook, maid, and errand-boy, all wrapped up in one.

Although it runs parallel to and intersects with other CLAMP stories, xxxHOLiC stands fully on its own as a horror story about desire and addiction. The series consists of short arcs and one-shots, each centering on a particular customer – both average humans and fantastic spirits. Like Watanuki, each has a wish. Like Watanuki, each must pay a price. Sometimes the cost is as simple as a lock of hair, but other times it wreaks catastrophe on the rest of their life. Thus each customer’s story becomes an exploration of different aspects of desire – addiction to social media, academic ambitions, the desire to see a loved one again – and the effects it can have on one’s life.  

There are many lovely things about this manga: the gorgeous art style, Watanuki’s temper tantrums, the pervasive creepiness.  But the best part is the witch, Yuuko. Not only is she a total troll with a wicked sense of style, she is constantly dropping truth bombs:

Yuuko and xxxHOLiC were hella formative for me.
