Yoshifumi Aoki - Yui Kiriyama kiss Kokoro Connect by Bizmarck
Yoshifumi Aoki - Yui Kiriyama kiss Kokoro Connect
Hello All,

It has been a while. Still alive though ^^

So what have I been up to of late, well lately I have been on the hunt for a watchable anime. Not as easy as it sounds as I am very picky.

Lets put it this way, other then Cowboy Bebop, Michiko e Hatchin, Trigun and Evangelion there has been nothing I have really watched all the way through or been inclined to watch for that matter. So I have been doing a bit of digging and found a few things I liked

Spice and Wolf is heavy on the economics but has a great story and character interaction.
Garden of words is actually a movie but has to be the most damn gorgeous piece of animation I have ever seen so deserves a mention (story was not bad either)
Despite being put off Toradora originally I gave it a go and found it ok with some good moments.

And then there is Kokoro Connect... it had an interesting story premise and was done quite well.

I love how they did the character Inaba (hats of to the English dub actor for nailing that one) and the phenomenons are done very well with out being too over the top. I don't mind Taichi but didn't find him special enough to warrant so much focus... would have preferred a bit more balanced screen time for all cahrecters. And that Is why I have drawn Aoki and Yui, they had great chemistry and a cute development arc, and as Inaba got her kiss in the series I felt a little let down these two never got that moment. (also cant find any damn fanart of these two in a cute embrace!)

I found a great kiss image of Lawrance and Holo from spice and wolf and wanted to give it a go so thought, what the hell.

anyway I hope you like it and I hope fans of Aoki and Yui get a kick out of it.


Kuvira and Bataar Jr. from Avatar Korra by Bizmarck
Kuvira and Bataar Jr. from Avatar Korra
What can I say, I am a Kuvira fan. ^^

It's the deep yet feminine voice, gets me every time. Much like Ryoko from the English dub.

Thought a bit of fan-art for one of my favorite villains would not be out of order. I wanted to do some timeline type pictures and give these two a hope at a happy end. I don't mind Bataar Jr. at all either, I think they do well together.

Yes, I know what she almost did to him... but I still think she honestly loves him, and he would be the type to forgive even this act and potentially wait long enough for them to have a life together after she has done her time (which I don't think would be too long, given she did bring order and surrender in the end etc.).

I hope you like the collection of images.

Zhu Li and Varrick do the thing by Bizmarck
Zhu Li and Varrick do the thing

A great season.  And lots of supporting characters getting plenty of airtime… including my favourite pair Zhu Li and Varrick

They had my favourite line in the show:

Varrick - “So let’s go attach these barely functional rust buckets to a giant killer smashing machine!”

Zhu Li  - “It’s exactly how I always pictured our engagement.”

And just all round great stuff. :)

As for the image, my favourite moment was when Varrick was about to propose and Zhu Li, she turns around and her hair flicks around, causing him to gulp. She is damn pretty ^^

I wanted to reproduce the shot but realised that with the hair all a flutter and her eyes a little more closed she is more difficult to recognise… I hope it is a good enough likeness and I deliberately picked a colour code she typically uses and put her glasses in her hand.

I think it would be great if Varrick could convinces Zhu Li to do the turn-and-look on command, when trying to temporarily put a man off their game… would be awesome. :D

 “Zhu Li,  do the thing.”
