Re: Hoshino Katsura's Oneshots
Have to say that overall I liked it and would read more. What can I say? I'm in love with her artwork. I hope she continues D.Gray-Man as diligently as before. But if there was perhaps a hiatus month for DGM, having a chapter of this one-shot would certainly soften the blow!
I don't know what happened with KHR but I think Hoshino has too much invested in DGM to drop it and I can't see her taking on more work aside from short projects (like this and the character designs for Valvrave) at the same time. On rereading there is so much to notice (in DGM).
Anyway I just finally read both translations (& also most of the raw) yesterday, and I enjoyed this! I notice that like with Kaiten, she's trying to do something different from the usual. I don't know what kind of appetite there is out there for it in Japan but I'd love to see either Kaiten or Ayakashi no Ou get picked up *in the future* after DGM is completed. Maybe as mid-length series.
Kagome reminds me mostly of Lenalee but also of Allen a little bit for her polite speech (oh, her memory loss seems to fit Allen too). "Customer" obviously reminds me of a blond-haired Cross, but also Kanda for how he speaks/behaves at the very start. (Kanda also has dark blue eyes apparently.) And this is really silly but the way blond Cross ate his mountain of daifuku with "baku baku baku" (chomp chomp chomp) over his head reminded me of Timcanpy.
It's been a few months, but I finally got a chance to make my 2 cents on the MJ one-shot. I like it for what it is. It gave me a "what if" feel for the main guy character. In other words, it's what if General Cross had a past life and that was exactly IT!! >D I mean, seriously. He's like a split image of Cross, but, er.... Less grumpy? *shrugs*
