Asayama Ashikuni (Japanese, c. 1775/79 - 1818, active c. 1807 - 1818), Shikan as a Lion Dancer, 1816. Ink and color on silk; calligraphy, ink on paper,11 ¼ x 8 3/8 inches (28.6 x 21.3 cm.
Do you think that there is a chance that Shikane will become canon and end up together? I just stumbled over that weird interview where the writer says he understands how ppl see them as romantic but it's more than that - it was quite a weird wishy washy answer. Like are they just buddies or more?
