I have no idea why but this drawing of Aoi and Blue Angel gives me so many feelings. especially Aoi. am I the only one that thinks that this picture represents her personality?
Yeah, I see what you mean. This art has to be hinting at something; it wouldn’t make sense in hindsight if Aoi ends up being totally different.
So in this art we have Aoi turning away her head, looking like she’s trying to hide, while Blue Angel looms behind her. Whether she’s hiding who she is irl or not (I forget if this is something that’s been confirmed or denied), it’s clear that there’s something about Blue Angel that she isn’t entirely comfortable with.
I’m not trying to say that Blue Angel is going to take on a life of her own or anything. But I think one of Aoi’s main conflicts is going to be her feeling suffocated by the bombastic, fun-loving, magical-girl-esque Blue Angel.
Because we don’t know much about Aoi yet, but she looks very plain and stoic compared to the Blue Angel, who we see smiling all the time. You could take that as Aoi feeling freer, and thus happier, as Blue Angel. But given this recent artwork, Blue Angel is probably going to be more of a mask than anything—one that Aoi, irl Aoi, is going to feel inadequate compared to.
