Anyways, here are my thoughts, which are going to cause me to be hated incredibly.
As usual, Hoshino's coloring disgusts me. But I surprisingly enjoyed this one-shot. It has a lot of interesting detail.
I appreciate a female big-breasted protagonist that has realistic proportions. She's not fat, she's just got that stocky voluptuous (Scandinavian) build - and also very strong. She seems also pretty level-headed. I like a protagonist that doesn't look like a thin rail with balloons attached.
The male protagonist was pretty cool too, though I really loathe the DBZ magic hair effect.
For some reason, elements of the art sorta reminded me a little of AoNoEx. I'm not saying Hoshino plagiarized, but I wonder if she took some inspiration and decided to play with it in a one-shot separate from her masterwork. The reason why I don't say vice versa is because I haven't seen Hoshino ever echo that in her designs.
Anyways, I look forward to reading the story. In fact, it looks more interesting and detailed than DGM (which is at the moment, so caught up in the dramatic effect that the story has suffered). I wouldn't mind if she cancelled DGM and moved on to something else, this one-shot proves to me that she can still do excellent art.
@Color page comment: *bad pokerface of agreement*
I have no idea what's going on in Kaiten other than what I can gather from the art, but I wouldn't mind seeing it becoming Hoshino's next project once D.gray-man gets tied up.
Also I'm glad to see the Earl not being a antagonist for once, or in the story at all.
well, i was reading (*not reading, just looking xD*) the oneshot agaain, and i saw this:
what this date meaaaaans????? T_____T
As for me, I envy Hoshino's coloring abilities. I find that her colored drawings get stuck in my head like songs do, simply because I love them so much. Having said this, I don't think that these were her best colored images. They weren't as impressive as they usually are for me.
Definitely loved the clean, detailed look of this one shot. I can see why it took so long to get the DGM chapter out. Is it just me, or is it really weird to see Hoshino drawing something so up-to-date with the city and everything? Haha, she pulled it off all the same.
The two main characters look great, and from what I could gather from the art, they bounce off of each other well. And the main chick is cuuuuurvy! Loved her and those daisy dukes! Great character design, as always.
I have to go to bed soon. My flight to Asia is less than 10 hours away. (3 hour lay-over in Japan... NOOooooooooo... So short! =.=) But in the midst of my last minute preparations, I can answer this....
As I said before, the mailing address is printed above that deadline and subscribers/customers must make sure they attach the words "'D.Gray-Man' B2 Poster Present" to it.
Of course, I don't highly recommend people, not in Japan, printing that particular page out trying to see if they can obtain this poster. ^^; (You can try at your own risk if you own LaB outside of Japan.)
To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed at the main male characters hero costume/design, it feels unnatural and childish but the overall art is quite good IMO. Now waiting for English Scanlation to know what's really going on.
I'm at the Budapest airport right now... xD But i guess... we cannot wait for the announcement of the D.Gray-man new anime isnt it?
I dont remember where you guys posted that pic with the hat in black and white and the date of september, but i asked a friend and it seems to make reference to the CaraGure.
Offtopic: The thing is... they talk about the first volume (as if there will be more?)
The characters look funny and cheerful, doesn't look like some dark story.. anyway I like the girl she's kinda naughty ^ ^ at least for now the drawing is ok,, waiting the English scan...
OMG!! best return of vacation ever!!!!
I like the girl from the one-shot x3 she seems nice and funny! and what the hell is wrong with the hero xD he explodes when someone is nice to him(?) xD I wonder what their names are... Can't wait for the translation x3
The one-shot was adorable. :3 It's like an anti-D. Gray man in a way because of its light-heartedness. I like the fact that the heroine doesn't have the proportion of a supermodel nor has large breasts and a tiny waist; it's certainly refreshing.
Here's a synopsis: the girl (Piro?) is an ex-villain who is now opting to become a fighter for justice instead. In Tokyo, she encounters a "superhero" (Koutarou) who has problems with people acknowledging him and so he explodes. When Piro brings him back to his house (which is also a soba restaurant), the aunt requests that she joins Koutarou as a superhero duo. Piro accepts the offer.
Basically it's a fluffy Power Ranger story.
