Even his grump face is adorable. How could he intimidate anyone?
THE MOST ADORABLE. ALL OF HIS GRUMPY EXPRESSIONS ARE SO CUTE I CANNOT,,, ,
HOWEVER. Do not piss him off for real. Because Keith absolutely has the ability to intimidate you:
Keith is dangerous. You do not want to become his enemy. Wanna know why? He is scary when he loses his temper, sure, but look at this:
Keith is calculating. The times where he keeps his cool he knows 100% what he is doing, risks and possible failures included. He was able to fight side by side with Thace and leave him to die a few seconds after. He is realistic, has a sharp mind and an even sharper temper - we’re lucky that he hangs out with his friends so much because on his own he would be terrifying :P
- Additional page at the end of ch60: Miyuki batting + Furuya & Eijun adorably staring at each other
Close-up (because this panel is so cute):
- Bonus manga featuring Chris at the university + Miyuki & Sawamura consulting each other how to reply to Chris’ question:
Daiya no Ace #6 “First Impression”
Team-mate: What? Really!?
Team-mate: You’re the same age?
Team-mate: So you are a player!?
Chris: I’m 18.
Team-mate: I definitely thought you’re older than 20!! You’re too calm [for your age]!!
Team-mate: I used the honorific language to you since I thought you’re the coach!!
Really, *how many times have you lived before!? [*common joke in Japan you say to people who are very mature for their young age as if they are living their life for the second/third/fourth time.]
Later in the evening…
Daiya no Ace #7 “A question from Senpai”
Eijun: Miyuki-senpai, look at this!! I’ve got a LINE message from Chris-senpai! Miyuki: Hm? You’ve got that, too? Eijun: Eh? You, too!?
Chris’ LINE message to Eijun: Sawamura, please answer honestly. How old do I look? Btw, I don’t need any jokes right now.
Chris’ email to Miyuki: Do I really look that old? My senpai use the honorific language to me… […]
Eijun: Seems like something happened to him…? Miyuki: What are you going to reply? Eijun: What should I reply?
Miyuki: Maybe something like “You are so calm, that’s why you don’t look like a child”? Eijun: That sounds nice! Miyuki: What about your reply? Eijun: Mmmmm, maybe something like “You look 5 years younger with your hair down”? Miyuki: Yes, that’s it! Eijun: Yes, this is it!
- Breaking News: Miyuki is confirmed to be a flip phoneuser (while Eijun, Chris and probably everyone else are smartphone users.)
- Chris-senpai sent an email to Miyuki while he contacted Eijun via LINE. This means that Miyuki does not have a LINE account. Someone give miyuki a fucking smartphone and teach him how to use LINE omg he’s the captain of the seidou baseball club after all. Seriously, how can he not have a LINE account xD
I’ve never spent so much time on any royai art before, and I’m really happy with the outcome! Tisiphon might have recognized the scenes, since they’re all from the wonderful fanfic she wrote FOR ME almost two years ago! Ever since then I’ve been wanting to honour it with fanart and I’ve never got around to doing it. Until now! I hope you like them, Tisi, there’s one drawing for every section in your story, and they all express moments of intimacy I really appreciate in fiction ´-` with that fanfic you literally fulfilled my fanwork wishes and I am so, so grateful for that <3
