Kino, Hermes and a Waterfall by Nick-Ian
Kino, Hermes and a Waterfall
As I've mentioned in my latest journal entry, I've been watching Kino no Tabi (aka Kino's Journey) - and finished it! It's so good!

The show has a laid back pace and a dreamy feel to it. The animation and art seem low budget, but it didn't bother me that much. It's the stories in each episode that drew me in. Every one is thought provoking. There's always a topic that makes you really think. They tackle questions like, "what if humans can read each other's hearts?" or "what if people didn't need to work?" or "what if people depended on nothing but a book of prophecies?"

And overall it's just a story about travelling and experiencing the vastness of the world - which I find incredibly romantic and inspiring. Watching it just makes me wanna drop everything and go on a never ending journey myself. But that's not possible of course. Is it?

Well you'll need money to do that. And other things, like personal transportation, knowledge in self defense, a weapon and the ability to deal with people - both the good ones and bad ones... None of these I posses. 

Done in my doodle book using watercolor.

Kino no Tabi does not belong to me.

Is it true? Was the news article I read legit? Will there be a new Dissidia sequel? 014 or Quatterdecim or something? With MORE characters? Zack Flair?

*somersaults*

Anyway, they say it might be made for PSP. Good thing I still have mine running fine. In fact I'm still playing Dissidia on it. But I bet it'll need updated firmwares or something. Which is such a drag... I wish they make it for PS3 instead.

I'm watching Kino's Journey. I found this anime after searching for titles with philosophical themes. I found a list online, and included there was Wolf's Rain (which I loved because of the meaning in its story), so I thought if they have it included in that list, then it probably is a decent one. And I wasn't disappointed. The animation in Kino's Journey might turn you off, but every episode has something for you to think about. I'm also gonna try the others in the list after I finish this one, although I've already watched Mushishi and Wolf's Rain. The others left are Psycho Pass and Habane Renmei. 

Oh yeah, here's the link: japaneselevelup.com/5-anime-de…

And I read the one about the new Dissidia here: finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Us…

probably a whole bunch of bull sh*t.

Kanade, Her Piano and the Beach by Nick-Ian
Kanade, Her Piano and the Beach
You'll know I love a particular anime if, after years, I still draw fanarts of it. 

Angel Beats just pops into my head every now and then. And this here is one of my favorite female characters in anime - Kanade Tachibana, with her trusty piano. Kanade playing that piano in the opening sequence of the anime is just memorable... :heart:

Done using watercolor.

Angel Beats does not belong to me.

The Imperator Of Death by Nick-Ian
The Imperator Of Death
"I SHALL DELIVER DEATH UNTO ALL OF THE LIVING."

Simple little watercolor fanart of The Imperator from Blazblue. I like it when she says her quotes. 

Blazblue belongs to Arc System Works.

ETO by Nick-Ian
ETO
What in the world?! What kind of an ending was that? I'm talking about the final chapter of Tokyo Ghoul. Gah! Too many questions, too many loose ends, too many unresolved crisis... *cries*
