OOFURI MANGA CLUB AU THO (inspired by Gekkan Shoujo)

S:guys but what if there was an oofuri au where abe was a manga artist and was trying to get mihashi to be his manga partner
S:and mihashi didn't want to because the middle school manga club was mean to him
S:and tajima is the stupid tensai sparkle person like mikorin
I:you know it'd be all like "YOU'RE A GOOD ARTIST" "NOOOOOOO" "YOU'RE A GOOD ARTIST" "NOOOOOOO" cause i feel like abe is really good at storylines but mihashi is a great artist (he has great brush control!...or something) and then meanwhile tajima's like "....yeah but can we make it more ecchi?"
S:momokan is their editor btw
I:i think hanai does either backgrounds or screentones and feels like it's not GLAMOROUS enough at first and then momokan makes him get his head on straight
S:LOL and also he has to train to be the backup artist for if SOMETHING HAPPENS
Me:OMG or Tajima is amazing at backgrounds and Hanai's like "omfg his 3 point perspective is RIDICULOUS I CAN'T COMPARE /cries"
Me:meanwhile, Izumi does their screentones and tries his best to not headdesk all the time
S:and their manga has to compete in like
S:popularity contests
S:to become a real manga
S:they're like submitting to a magazine
I:lol they have manga competitions in hs, i think!
I:also mihashi's friend who leads the cheer club totally models for them because he no longer draws but he wants to support them!!
S:so he can no longer draw ;^;

yeesh the worst part about drawing fire emblem awakening fanart is how incomprehensible their outfits are. like… does tactician have 2 or 3 layers of clothing? how the hell does chrom’s outfit work (i have heard others call it a onesie???? designers wat r u thinkin)??? is it possible to find good refs of things or do you just stare at game screenshots for days? why’s it gotta be so hard

also drawing characters in dynamic!!! poses!!!!!

also looking at ref art and thinking “lol and u want to cosplay that someday. self, u r a fool”

/__\ i should go to bed

u know what i’ve been thinking about recently -

abemiha and fakiru have really similar relationship dynamics

  • one member is a bird, and is kinda clumsy but also really capable when it comes down to it (pitching / princess tutu + hope)
  • bird member also has really bad self esteem
  • bird member makes ridiculous faces
  • other member starts out as a controlling douchebag (abe with control problems regarding baseball/mihashi, fakir who abuses mytho)
  • but by meeting bird member they start to realize how full of shit they are
  • and then do a turn around and become a lot less shitty

but well. Fakir started out as much more of a douchebag than Abe did at any rate (which makes his turn around greater in turn haha, also Ahiru is good at communicating with people and Mihashi isn’t, so there are some differences here but anyway both pairings are nicely balanced)

can u imagine mihashi and abe in ahiru and fakir’s roles tho

mihashi: d-d-d-d… DANCE!!!! I WON’T GIVE UP DANCING!!! /thinks about pirouettes all the time
abe: did u check ur shoes. did u eat breakfast. did u lose weight (u can’t be 2 heavy to lift, but don’t be unhealthy you dumbass). did u

perfect pas de deux

ok, real talk, oofuri hogwarts quidditch team AU

my first thought when putting the whole team in one house (though obviously they’re more complex than that…) would be Hufflepuff

here’s my stab at giving them all positions:

Seeker - Mihashi (reserve = Hanai)
Keeper - Abe (reserve = Tajima)
Chasers - Tajima, Hanai, Oki (reserve = Mizutani, Nishihiro)
Beaters - Sakaeguchi, Izumi (reserve = Suyama)

definitely not perfect, since quidditch is not like baseball basically at all, but just contemplate the team all at hogwarts for a moment ok ヽ(° ∀ ° )ノ

drawing Gekkan Shoujo fanart currently involves attempting to fit Nozaki’s ridiculous 190cm body inside comic panels with other characters

(i’ve given up on having his whole head in-frame)

(obvious solution: just have everyone standing on boxes)

Anonymous asked: AAAAH!! ;o; There are so few Mikorin/Hori fans, it's great to know more people who like it as well!! (as well as Drarry and the x files!!) Your art and colouring are amazing, especially how you capture expressions. It's always so interesting looking through your blog! :) Also love your cosplay, you both look really stunning. ^v^



thank you for the compliments O__O i… need to draw more… /__\ (mikohori fanart will happen, I PROMISE — i have a lil fan comic sort of scripted out… someday…)

you should also check out kainguroo on tumbly (unless… you already have… the gekkan shoujo fandom isn’t that big right…), she’s also a mikorin/hori shipper and also ships kashima/sakura :D

YAY FOR BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE DUO (imagine art of a town in the mountains covered in flowers and sparkles — that’s the mikohori ship

fiendswithbenefits : their art style always outlines the lips on darker skin people even when they’re not wearing lipstick

And in the early episodes for hatchin’s first job there’s a really racist caricature of a chinese man (complete with strange false accented voice acting japanese)

Might be other things im forgetting.

i kind of dunno if this is just the character designers trying to get at some kind of medium “cartoony realistic” art? but also I don’t think characters with fewer racial markers, e.g. Hana, are coded as “Japanese” as you’d be able to assume for anime taking place in Japan — she’s probably white-passing latina? Moreños??? and Michiko is probably black & latina (why everyone has Japanese first names, I do not know)??? and judging by Vanessa, it seems like explicitly “asian” characters have some facial markers associated with them also.

I DEFINITELY DO NOT GET IT, whatever they’re going for here. like is everyone’s japanese-ness (unless… coded otherwise) supposed to make it more accessible to japanese viewers? or is it some kind of commentary on the japanese brazilian population (this whole series takes place in brazil????)?

#what is michiko to hatchin even about really 

hey psst you should watch Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun because high school comedy about manga! only 3 eps out so far. v good.

also come back and discuss unpopular non-canon ships Mikorin/Hori, Chiyo/Kashima, and aro!Nozaki (alternatively Nozaki/shoujo manga) with me because these ships aren’t going to sail themselves…

I am currently v committed to Mikorin/Hori b/c Mikorin is awkdorkable and Hori is super competent and cool and! there’s also a height difference!!!!! and!! the combination would be gr8, trust.

/gives up on only using this tumbly for art altogether but maybe not really b/c i do want to draw fanart for this…

#gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun  #mikohori 

well art hasn’t really been happening (how to draw?? i don’t know anymore) but if you’re interested in my opinions of various anime, I recently wrote up some reviews for Tamako Market, Baccano!, and Hitsugi no Chaika, and actually posted them over on the review tumbly my sister and I own (we post… infrequently), so take a gander if ya care. the Baccano review is especially full of unpopular opinions, but that’s just how I feel about it soooooooooooo womp. #dealwithit

posting anything at all is so rare nowadays, hah. writing, drawing, etc. man. how do people do this consistently? i don’t know.
