Project update: Harami Bara by Hashiba Mizu

Hey Guys,

this was originally planned as a little surprise, but then I accidentally posted it on our project update list and now the cat is completely out of the bag xD
So now here’s the official post.

We are currently working on this manga. 

Harami Bara by Hashiba Mizu 

It gets a lot of critisizm but we really like it. It’s really cute, unintentionally funny and it’s an Mpreg manga. 

We will publish an uncensored version and we will release Chapters 1-5 together.

The release won’t take that long anymore, so stay tuned :)

Whats the first thing you ever drew?

I used to draw fantastic cities and geometric shapes, I wanted to be an architect more than anything else when I was a kid. This is mostly thanks to watching THE SECRET CITY when I was about 7 or 8?

Afterward I had gotten used to just drawing in my spare time and started cartooning. I used to draw comic strip characters a fair bit (Garfield, The Far Side, etc). By elementary school I started working with things like pastels and markers, even doing collages. I got really inspired by video game artwork as I got older and used to draw lots of things like fantastic Castlevania interiors, that evolved into trying to draw more characters as well and at the same time I had started getting into anime / manga / video games. I would draw all my favorite characters… (man I know I have them buried somewhere if I find ‘em I’ll post ‘em)

There was no world wide web when I was going through puberty so other than sneaking around to find my dad’s secret stash of porno mags I would just draw my own porn. It was a huge secret thrill to draw all these weird scenarios out and then figure out how to destroy them without getting caught so to speak. The first boobs I ever drew were “Princess Toadstool”s like a lot of people I had an unhealthy fascination with her… uhh anyway one pic I destroyed I wish I had kept, it wasn’t overly sexual it was Angela from Gargoyles wearing Belle’s dress… (!?) ANYway…

I drew quite a bit up until I started college which basically destroyed my free time, I did dribs and drabs here and there, I also managed to score my first copy of Corel Photo-Paint 8 in 1998 and I think by ‘99 I had finally gotten my hands on a scanner, I still have some of my art from that time

(why yes that IS a Crown Royal dice bag - such a NERD)

Following college there was a long dark period where I worked for an EXTREMELY shitty company and I basically replaced all my hobbies with working like a slave for a souless motherfucker and drinking. When I finally quit that hellhole in 2005 I discovered I suddenly had this thing called “free time” (funny when you aren’t working 90 hours a week)

By then I was still using Corel but trying to teach myself how to colour stuff…

GAZE INTO THE ABYSS PEOPLE this was me 12 years ago
(and my old icon)


I was drawing with a MOUSE like a common mouth breather …well… not so much drawing but click and dragging points with the horrid vectoring tools in Photoshop (not Illustrator uggghhhhhh).

I started getting better at colour, in fact I think I really met @grimphantom2 by colouring one of his Kiva drawings, I mean we knew each other from WWOEC but not as closely at that time, all we knew was we had good taste in cartoon ladies


Anyway it’s been a long ride since then, 11 years on deviantArt and roughly 12 years of regular drawing. Now I can almost draw a circle again!

…and color pinups like a real boy…

…and pictures that mean a lot to me personally…


Episode 500..just wow like wow

As I’m writing this I’m literally crying tears because of just how wonderful and sweet the ending to the naruto anime truly is. Like staying up till exactly 6:55 am to watch it was so worth it. I can barely type because there are tears on my screen but everything about it is just short and sweet and so so fucking beautiful. Like everyone looks so good and naruto and hinata just look so fucking happy to be together and I love this fucking show and manga so much.

I know I get really goofy with everything I draw but this series is like the only anime series that always make me cry like a child. Please watch this episode because it’s just too fucking wonderful of how my and a bunch of peoples childhood ended. Thank you and sorry for the long post.

anonymous asked:

What do you think about miu and yasu's relationship? I always thought it came out of nowhere but also i haven't reread the manga in a while and I noticed everytime I reread it rewatch the anime I always understand the series better so idk thoughts?

I really like their relationship! I think it’s nice, that two “supportive”/”caretaker” characters ended up together, since they can share the responsibility of looking out for their younger friends. They kind of remind me of Kyosuke and Junko, in that respect.

I didn’t think their relationship came out of no where - but I can see why you might because, for one, Miu’s relationship with Nobu was being built and seemed to be set up for them. Tbh, it’s something that still bothers me, that the moment Nobu went for Asami instead, he and Miu stopped interacting. but, Anyway!! 

Another, is simply that their relationship is very Adult. And by that I don’t mean sex or anything, but that it their attraction wasn’t shown through blushing and rapid heart beats, the way characters in love usually act in manga. They just started out talking and teasing. I think this is their first interaction shown in the manga, but presumably they’ve talked before since Blast had been living in the apartments for a while by then:

Just simple teasing and having fun! Though, Miu already seems to be interested at this point, so you might be right in that their we never saw them talk the first few times they talked. Tbh I dunno if Yazawa planned that Yasu and Miu would end up dating from the beginning, or if she realized that their personalities were much more suited and of course they’d be attracted to each other and have a lot in common just from a few conversations, or if Miu and Yasu did that all on their own.

After that though, they talk and find more and more in common (not liking crowds and the same taste in booze). While Yasu might have decided him being in a relationship was something he had to do because of feelings for Nana, he’s definitely genuine in his attraction, as well as in his concern for her well being. But unlike most of the characters that Yasu tries to look out for, Miu’s problems are helped just by his companionship and sincere kind words. Otherwise she can look out for herself. So she’s not just another person he has to feel Responsible for, like he does with Nana, Nobu, Ren, and Shin and she even takes to looking out for Hachi and Miu/Misato for him.  They lighten each other’s burdens.

That’s all I can think of atm, so hopefully I answered your question to some degree ^^;;  But it’s something I’ll keep in mind for my next reread, because I definitely agree - I always have a new understanding every time I reread/rewatch the series! Thanks for asking. <33

peachchanvidel replied to your post:  The Fire Tribe is the only land that’s actually…                

 I really need to read those parts of the manga again… this mix of hereditary monarchy and the tribes ruled by their generals confuses me so much.. how can they talk about bloodlines anyway.. this is more like “which colours match”.. my head hurts.. real history is confusing enough.. fictional history is even worse :“D

From what I understand so far, Kouka is made up of a union of five tribes that each have their own power and governments. However, the one that each tribe head reports to is the king. The king rules over them. It’s the king’s job to keep them in check when they see fit. Yet because they have that much power, they have a say in big decisions that even the king needs to listen to. When the king takes themselves out of that position, the other tribes are basically on their own to dictate how they protect their land AND the rest of the country at the same time. It takes a lot of synergy, and when they don’t have that, everything starts to crumble.

Then we have how the tribes decide their leaders. It’s a blanket rule that the strongest in the land rules over them as the General. A very flawed rule, but one that’s in place nonetheless. The Wind tribe follows this precisely. Fire’s succession may be hereditary, since it was a given that Kyo-ga would succeed Su-jin. Earth might follow the “strongest in the land rules” method. Water I’m not sure of.

Sky’s doesn’t necessarily follow that “strongest rules” method because they’re the tribe in royal power and they follow things a little differently. The king or a blood relative of the king rules over their tribe, and they don’t necessarily have to be their General. Il was the head of the Sky Tribe, and he certainly was not the strongest warrior in the land. Had Yuhon been crowned the king, he probably would have been the Sky Head as well as their General…and the king of the whole country. Unless he gave the Sky head duty to Il, but we’ll never know.

Kichijoji Dake ga Sumitai machi desu ka?

So I found a really awesome manga today???

It’s called “Kichijoji dake ga sumitai machi desu ka?” or, roughly, “The only town you want to live in is Kichijoji?” and is by Maki Hirochi

It’s about two sisters who work do real estate in Kichijoji, Tokyo

They’re both fat girls, but as far as I can tell so far, they aren’t fetishized or are the butt of a joke???

They’re both super cute, and drawn proportionally and realistically, seriously I can’t think of the last time I saw a manga with fat girls as the main characters/protagonists, or if I EVER have period. 



Also the stories are all just really sweet, it’s basically just the sisters helping people who come to their real-estate agency find the perfect home, like, it’s really cute and sweet and good? 

Also it has a live-action drama going on rn which is super exciting!

Basically, I don’t know if this story will get more popular or if the manga will get an English translation, but I was just super hyped about this and wanted to share ~ <3


Moving at snail pace with this picture. Probably because I had to go back and edit Sevens face over and over again. I really hope I will finish this picture before sac anime. I stupidly hurt my back (i actually don’t even know how I did I just turned around to pick up something on the table and I felt a crack like in the manga and the next thing I know I’m in so much pain lol) now I can’t even sit and draw for more than 15 minutes before I have to go lie down because my back hurt so much -.-;; I feel like some old lady arrrgggh

Yuri on Ice interview with Kubo Mitsurou - A summary

Alright, so it wasn’t exactly an interview, it was the last episode official YOI web radio called Yuri on Radio, which you can listen to here. (Unless the videos get deleted which happens quite a lot, but it’s still there at the time of writing). Regardless of what you want to call it, it featured a few questions to Kubo (who, as you know, is the author of the story to YOI) and her answers and I’d like to deliver them to you.

Note: This is only a rough translation, not a word for word translation, though it should hopefully convey the most relevant information. Feel free to correct me if you think I got something wrong!

With that out of the way, let’s dive into the most important/interesting questions and answers.

Okay, so this first bit isn’t really a question, but more of a fun fact from behind the scenes but let me keep the format similar to the rest of the post:

The seiyuu received manga drafts from Kubo to use as references before recording sessions to better understand the characters. At first they were around 70 pages long (around the first episode) but by the last episode, there were about 120-130 pages of manga dedicated to each episode. The manga drafts were essentially drafts for the episodes and Kubo and Yamamoto had to carefully select the content they wanted to include in the anime because unfortunately there was too much she wanted to show in just 23 minutes per episode. Kubo said that it was a difficult choice because there were many scenes that she wanted to be animated but a number of them had to be thrown away and never used in the anime.

[I know that some people will ask so let me say: I doubt that the manga draft they made for references will ever be fully published. I’m assuming it wasn’t a proper manga and more like sketches with speech bubbles that look nothing like the neat little volumes you may usually purchase. It wasn’t meant to be beautiful, only useful to the seiyuu and it was a way of presenting stories with which Kubo was most comfortable and which she found the easiest to create.]

How close is Kubo with Yamamoto (the director) and how long have they known each other?

They haven’t known each other very long; Yamamoto approached her in the Summer of 2014, asking whether she would like to write a story for a figure skating anime. In the Summer of 2015 they met practically every day in Kubo’s place to create the story and often ended up cooking and eating together (she explained it by saying that they got so excited over writing it that it made them hungry lol). Kubo also highlighted that Yamamoto has great love for anime and for figure skating and she was glad to work with her and create Yuri on Ice with Yamamoto’s advice and her help in terms of details.

Why was Hasetsu (based on Karatsu in Saga, Kyushu) chosen as Yuuri’s hometown?

There are few famous figure skaters from Kyushu and Kubo wanted to show such unlikely origins for a famous skater for a change, and also wanted to present Yuuri as the ‘hope of the region’. She also hoped to make it a generic town where you could find anywhere (which would make it relatable and easy to picture for many viewers). She also thought that making it into a town located around a castle would leave a good impression (and would look nice to foreigners watching the show). So they searched the region and finally chose Karatsu as the perfect basis for creating Hasetsu. Up till now Karatsu wasn’t a famous travel location (being rather old and small and offering nothing special in particular), but it seems that the anime is already inviting more tourists to the city (which apparently was also what they hoped for).

Who was the easiest character to draw?

Kubo didn’t hesitate to say that it was JJ. She felt like she knew exactly how he would look and act so putting it down on paper was essentially simple. She said that Yurio was also quite easy to draw.

Now what’s interesting is that Kubo said that Yurio was the first character she came up with but they decided that they couldn’t make him the main character because “he couldn’t pull the story along”. He didn’t have any clear weaknesses the way Yuuri did, he didn’t have the desire to get involved with others or the predisposition to interact with other people the way Yuuri did, and they realized that the story progressed and developed much better when they paired Victor and Yuuri and the narrative began partly depending on them. She said that Yuri on Ice became what it was thanks to the decision to focus on Yuuri instead of Yurio (because they couldn’t find a good way to move the story forward with Yurio as the MC). She also said that Yurio was more of a tragic character and if he was the main character then the anime would become a sad story and they wanted to prevent that. They preferred to make it into a story overflowing with love. They chose not to speak about Yurio’s family in the anime in order not to give him a handicap and instead showed his relationships with many people who would support and help him in the future. She also said she wished she could show more of Yurio and Otabek’s friendship and she had a few scenes in mind but in the last episodes she had to cut out all of the lines that weren’t absolutely necessary. She said that she actually wanted to include many more scenes for many of the characters but it was a story about Yuuri Katsuki after all and she wanted to prioritize it in the end.

That’s about that for the relevant information, although they did mention the big seiyuu event featuring Kubo that will take place on April 29th, 2017, and, I presume, will also include some announcement regarding the second season.

I hope you found this post informative! Thanks for reading!

I’m so happy to see there’s so many people who wants Mutsumi with Serinuma!

I mean, it’s ok if you like better another guy(or girl) but he was the one who have always being by her side, as a friend! He never made fun of her looks when she was fat and new it was here when she first see her again.

He would never take advantage from the situation (this was a really precious moment for me)

He wants her to choose without any pressure (+ not taking advantage again)

And he cares about her safety and want her to trust him. He doesn’t try to talk in a way to conquer Kae, he says what he really believes.

Be together please
