    I like the style! They're both incredibly well done. Far better than anything I could even come close to doing with art. Usually I just draw abstract lines. lol These are much better. In a whole different league.

    Thank you, I'm so glad to hear it ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ There's something cool about abstract stuff though for sure! One isn't more talented than the other, we just have different styles. though I do thank you for your praise >w< gonna just pop this in here too, I did a chibi of those two cause they're fun to draw hehehe

    Looks like you really put your heart into it! It's really cool! ^^

    Thanks, heh. It was mostly done by an artist, I didn't really do much other than supply the clothes and stuff. There's a...how do I put it, genre? of anime styled dolls called Obitsu11 which are basically like nendoroid heads on jointed bodies. That's what this is trying to emulate!

    An interesting project. I've never commissioned a model of a character, but I do have several commercially produced ones.

    It might be my imagination, but in the last photo he doesn't look too happy about being dressed in a sailor suit and panda slippers. 🙂

    That's cool! I have a couple vocaloid figures myself. And yeah, he's definitely not happy about the outfits lmao >u<

    Ok, so, I've kind of just had this idea to make a thread where we could all share screenshots and video recordings of our games, whether it be scenes or gameplay. So, does anyone else feel like sharing their screenshots? ^^ I'll start off with some screenshots I took of the FF8 Remastered intro slideshow:

    I don't mean to post again too quickly but I started a different route and just HAD to share this lmao. Main villain dude says he doesn't converse with people who aren't beautiful (meaning Yang for some bizarre reason) and Yang is like "gotcha, so he's insane" i'm dying kdjfkjsdflskdf man takes no shit 😭

  5. Hellooo~ I did a bunch of cell-shaded chibi drawings of these two in the past couple of days and decided to wait to post them until I had enough for a collection! I will probably add to this thread the more art I do, these simple pieces are just so fun (=⌒▽⌒=) I'll start with my fav, which also happens to be my most recent. As a general rule, I'm not lookin for criticism, so please avoid that if possible. Thankie~


    1. Dancing ⌒°ʚ(ෆ❛ั ᴗ ❛ัʃƪ)ɞ♡°⌒ Here I revisited an older outfit of Camelia's that you can find in my female oc collection post!


    2. Bubblebath (❁´◡`❁) I made the outline too thick on this one, but going back and fixing it would be a pain lolYang_Camelia_bath.thumb.png.16a8f19d32faf15435dbc508cc1e0ca6.png 

    3. Afternoon nap~ This was actually the first one I did and I attempted a chubbier chibi style for it!Camelia_Yang_Nap.thumb.png.c245deaacb31846edaf5c5138faf2270.png

    4. Watching Fireworks ˙˚ଘo(∗  ❛ั ᵕ ❛ั )੭່˙ This one features Camelia's "canon" outfit!


    There will undoubtedly be more of these, so I'll probably just tack them on this post if I figure out how. Please consider following the topic to see more in the future!

    Nice collection.  I don’t collect much/any anime beyond a few DVDs but I do have a quite bit of space-related merch like lapel pins, buttons, spacecraft models, and even a few event access passes so I can appreciate the effort and fun involved in compiling such a collection.

    That sounds cool! Collecting stuff is always fun heheh~ And thanks! ^w^

    Nice collection. Over the years I've acquired quite a collection of anime merch, most of it figurines. I eventually gave up buying them because the prices were getting ridiculous.

    Here's a small group of them:


    The large ones on the back row and the one on the far right front row are kits that I built, the others are pre-made.



    Love it!! o(≧∇≦o) I've got a couple of vocaloid figures but I'm considering selling them to make room for some more acrylic stands heheh

    @Strawberry2456 I had no idea there was this much merch for this game (largely because I’d never heard of it 😅 ) You are a true fangirl 🤘

    Nice collection 👍 Particularly impressed with the Macross figures. Wasn’t surprised to see Sailor Mercury & Sakura, but was to see representation from Angelic Layer.

    I don’t have much in anime merch myself outside of t shirts & hoodies. Mainly lithos, pins, patches, etc that were included with dvd purchases. And these Galaxy Angel Figurines included with a dvd boxset


    I'm always appreciative of having my fangirl habits praised uwu thankie. Some are from different games and anime, and a lot of the pins I made myself! (ෆ˙ᵕ˙ෆ)♡

  8. I have a lot more than this, but I thought for now I'd share my ita bag (the insert anyway, the plastic part had glare from the light on it), my favorite shelfie and a decoden phone case I made ⌒°ʚ(ෆ❛ั ᴗ ❛ัʃƪ)ɞ♡°⌒


    The shelfie:


    The ita bag insert:


    The phone case:



    Yes, my Yang plushie is wearing a carrot suit. I have a youtube channel where he goes on adventures lmao

    The husbandos featured on the ita bag in no particular order: Dante Falzone, the Beppu twins, Akoya Gero, Kinshiro Kusatsu, Ibushi Arima, Yang (obviously lmao), Io Naruko/Battle Lover Sulphur (one tiny pin!), Shu, Azusa Mukami 

    I hope you like everything!

    Granted, the only reason I won't be playing it is because I'm a heterosexual kind of guy, but it does look like a fun game. Very involving. Nice choice of husbando, Strawberry. ^^

    Very fair lol, but thank you for your praise (。𓎆 𓎺 𓎆) It's honestly a fun story, very moody. I steer waaay clear of the bad ends though lol ^^; Yang himself is just a glorious, horrible bastard and I could spend ten hours gushing about him honestly lmao. I'll just leave it at a meme for now uwu

    My favorites are the chibis (1 & 10). And the combination of megane (glasses) & ahoge (vertical cowlick) is adorable.

    Of  the other versions of Kaede, I think I actually prefer the older version of #3, though I like the newer version of #2. Not intended as criticism as I have no professional understanding or talent for art, just my personal feelings.

    Finally my favorite of Camelia is #9.

    Thank you! ヾ(@^∇^@)ノ I also really love Kaede's little stray cowlick, I'm putting together a bjd (ball jointed doll, kind of like the Hatsune Miku/Vocaloid Dollfie Dream ones but smaller and yknow, Kaede) of her and I plan on trying to style the wig to have it >w< It's just become a staple of her character at this point. Even my silly lil memes have it lolKaede_passedout.thumb.png.fd813b6da333001bca67eeb7cb174946.png

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful artwork with us.
    Kaede is an interesting character, of the pictures of her I prefer the 2023 version of no.2 and no.3 and the 2021 version of no.4, I can definitely imagine her falling on her face mid-magical-girl-move. 🙂


    Thank you! I'm glad you like them(*^ワ^*)And yeah lol, it was kind of a running joke between me and my friend/rp partner. They made these (/ω\)



  11. I thought I’d share these here and add to the thread as they’re teeechnically from a game, just a visual novel uwu~


    These are some scenes of my beloved husbando being the unbridled chaos gremlin that he is. We love to see it (≧∇≦)/ Spoilers for Piofiore/Episodio 1926, but I have a severe doubt anyone here has actually played or will ever play it lol


    1. A lesson in Compliments:

    Wherein Yang gets the wrong idea from our poor protag-chan as she tries to explain the difference between a proper compliment and harassment.

    2. Solo Mission:

    Mans is impulsive, lmao. Other two bosses are understandably horrified.


    3. Someone come get their destructive 29-year-old toddler!

    You know when cats continuously knock things off of tables? That’s Yang rn.


    that's it for now but I'll probably share more if I ever gather the courage to start his 1926 route (☆`• ω •´)b

  12. Hi hi! I'm here again, this is more of an art dump than anything, I didn't want to like spam the forum by posting these individually so I decided to showcase them in a single thread instead. Please bear with me, this is going to be long lol. Also, I have no clue why I was forced to put this in bold! : D it just refuses to let me un-bold it, so...yeah. I'll do a lil guide for the pieces below by numbering them! 

    But first! I'll introduce you to the characters. Both are OCs of mine based on some anime media or other, the first being an actual show (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!) and the second a semi-popular otome game (Piofiore: Fated Memories/Episodio 1926). The former is a satire on the mahou shoujo genre and the latter is a moody mafia-drama set in the depths of 1920s Italy. Both are my main fandoms right now!٩(◕‿◕。)۶

    The brunette in the first couple of photos is Shizumoto Kaede, whom I did make a post about before, an 18 year old highschool student who poses as a boy to attend an all-male school. She does this as a means to escape a troubled home life; specifically an arranged marriage set up by her family. She’s a bit of a nerd, focusing mostly on studies as she tries her best to stay under the radar. I have several AUs for her (ranging from reluctantly heroic to being downright peer-pressured into being an idol) and ship her with, like…the entire cast of antagonists lol, she’s got a bit of a reverse harem o(≧∇≦o) Her defining trait is her clumsiness, which more often than not is outrageous enough to put her under the scrutiny of her academic peers.

    OC #2 is Camelia, a 21 year old subordinate of the Lao-Shu, which is a mafia family based in China that currently occupies the southern portion of a small town in Italy. Camelia is…kind of the opposite of what you'd expect from a mafioso. She's soft-spoken, innocent, painfully shy and harbors an incredibly embarrassing crush on the family head, Yang (peep the featured husbando on my profile uwu). She's another character who has a variety of AUs depending on the scenario. More often than not, she takes the role of Key Maiden–a sacrificial bride of sorts whose existence is the key to unearthing a sacred relic hidden in the outskirts of town. I stole this from the MC of the game, lmao. The town of Burlone is actually occupied by 3 of these mafia groups, and they aren't exactly on the best of terms with one another, which makes for some interesting dynamics.

    Both of these characters were used in my roleplaying endeavors for a good while. I'm absolutely down to try again if anyone is interested…however I'm really only looking to play against canon characters, and I know that's a tall order lol. But even if rp is off the table, I'd love to chat with you! Please don't be afraid to message!

    With all of this out of the way, I'll get to the art now (•̀⌄•́) 

    1. My latest work, another cell-shaded chibi piece featuring Kaede and her beloved bullies, twins Akihiko and Haruhiko who also happen to be insufferable and bratty idols.



    2. More Idol Kaede, her outfit is based on the twins'. This is a comparison photo between the original 2021 drawing and the current 2023 one! Because Haru and Aki’s gimmicks are the sun and moon respectively, I pictured Kaede's motif being a star  (/ω\) Kaede_VEPPer_comparison.thumb.png.3b0dbaa3f1bcce9964e6761ffe79ccb1.png

    3. Kaede's reference sheet comparison between the 2021 and 2023 versions. New one is knee-up because I still suck at drawing shoes lmaoKaede_comparison1.thumb.png.462c2f42c10c6fd019453ef884c98c80.png 

    4. Battle Lover Kaede! Another comparison. This is her hero uniform (•̀⌄•́) Wom-san wants her to be a hero. Kaede does not want to be a hero. They are at an impasse. Can you imagine tripping and falling on your face mid-magical-girl-move? That's Kaede. Allium_comparison.thumb.png.9ff15f63ff7940a92f7856ec9249c23e.png

    5. Camelia all dolled up~! She often dons some fancy outfits when gathering intel for Yang uwu Camelia_chair.thumb.png.209497771bbab62b10d696bc0d775c2a.png

    6. A dakimakura (body pillow) design of Camelia. This was a self indulgent piece, lol 


    7. A celebratory drawing I did for Yang's birthday (12/12) (≧ω≦)


    8. A fake game screenshot~ the background is from Piofiore. I'm not the best at blending stuff together, but I think it came out alright Camelia_screenshot.thumb.png.3f2f29b70caae27f3ff421def5c6f521.png

    9. Some Christmas art of Camelia, I actually did this on Chirstmas eve (*^ワ^*) Camelia_Winter.thumb.png.107e5ecab395c6bad198d1ad4b8cda86.png

    10. (Bonus) A fully shaded self portrait chibi, complete with a Yang plushie and an actual outfit of mine~ (yes I forgot to color his shoes and they turned pink bc of the background, rip) Chibi_self_portrait.thumb.png.a95befea81aaefba33f75c6c800475a0.png

    11. (Bonus bonus) A silly quick doodle of myself with my emotional support mob boss uwu IMG_6464.thumb.png.89c1ff15cfe50d488079891931f1ef47.png


    That’s it for now I guess! I think I know how to add to this post, and if I can’t figure it out I’ll just do another post, so you’ll probably see more in the future in some capacity.  Please, if you’ve made it this far, tell me your favorite! Be it a piece of art or an OC in general, I’d love to hear it. Also, as a general rule, I’m not looking for criticism–these pieces are finished and can’t be edited, so it’s kinda pointless to give tips that I don’t ask for. 

    Okay, now that’s it lol. Be well.

    Yeah, I really enjoyed it. Though a big part of it was the supporting cast of Misuzu & Carol who definitely need their own spinoff series


    It’s been a really long time since I saw it (to give you an idea, the version I have is the individual disc releases instead of a collection). I still remember it as one of the few true yuri series I’ve seen compared to some others where it’s more implied.

    Ahh yes I've seen clips of these two, they're adorable! And you're right, I remeber starting Maria Watches Over Us which is similar to Strawberry Panic but the yuri is more subtle and never really fully realized, so I dropped it because I'm just a sucker for cute romance lol.

    Good science fiction to me means getting the science part right so what I consider good SF is something of a rarity in most forms of media.  Star Wars for instance is just rebranded fantasy to me.  Dune is widely credited with being the best science fiction saga of all time.  Entertaining for sure but pretty much nothing to do with actual science or technology in real-world terms.

    In anime you’ll get stuff like Cowboy Bebop or Darling in the FranXX if you type “science fiction” in as a search term.  Again, entertaining, but pretty soft on the science side of things.  For me good science fiction would be something like Koukaku Kidoutai, better known as Ghost in the Shell.  Real-world in the science department, creating a solid foundation supporting an excellent story on top.  Other notable SF anime titles in my mind might be Planetes, Moonlight Mile, or even Rocket Girls.


    Ahh gotcha gotcha! I'll have to look into them sometime o((*^▽^*))o

    Hi, welcome.

    I do not understand your sentence:.." I’m really just looking for people who wouldn’t mind letting me gush about my fandom to them" 

    can you please explain? Sorry not english native

    Sure thing! By "gush" I guess I just mean "talk exictedly." I'm looking for friends who wouldn't mind letting me ramble a little about the anime I'm currently into!

  14. Heeeheh~ I was kinda too nervous to post here, but! I tried cell-shading some chibis and it turned out ok, so why not? Brunette is my beloved OC Shizumoto Kaede and the white-haired bob-cut fellow an equally beloved canon villain from season 1 of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, Kusatsu Kinshiro. I am a shameless OC insert kind of person and Kaede is one of my absolute favorites. Having someone so clumsy that she's basically a walking hazard as a hero is just 👌👌👌 In short, she's my baby lol. You'll probably be seeing more of her here in the future~


    Please, if possible keep criticism to yourself; I'm happy with this the way it is and can't make changes to it now anyway.

    Welcome 😁 Hope you find some things to interest you here.

    Unfortunately the only series on your profile that I’ve completed was Strawberry Panic. There have been some reverse harem or otome anime I enjoyed, but not many. I really enjoyed the recent remake of Fruits Basket though & so far this year has  had a surprising numbet of romcoms or anime with a romance aspect I actually enjoy (Tomo-chan, Yamada-kun, Kubo, Insomniacs After School, Clueless First Friend, Skip & Loafer, Ancient Magus Bride, Malevolent Spirits Mononogatari, Sugar Apple Fairy Tale, Sacrificial Princess & King of Beasts)

    Thank you! I've seen stills of Tomo-chan and it looks heckin adorable honestly >o< I definitely need to try it. And yee, Strawberry Panic was great :,D totally a comfort series for me, I have all of the novels and manga too for it. Wish there was more merch

    Welcome!  I’m something of an introvert myself so I think I have some idea where you’re coming from, though I’ve had a few more years to work on myself it to overcome it however.  Don’t worry too much.  The people here are cool.

    In terms of anime (and reading) I’m a fan of the science fiction genre.  Around here I guess I mostly post in the gaming-related sections (KSP and Minecraft) and occasionally the astrophysics/science club.

    I’ve tried the discord thing but I don’t often have the time to just hang out, though if there’s an active channel let me know and I may drop in from time to time.

    Thank you! ^w^ Scifi is cool, never really tried it out with anime before but it sounds fun. I do like Minecraft too, lol, and Pokemon sometimes. As for discord, I meant more like a PMs sort of thing than any server or big channel, I'm not a fan of major groups and am rarely active in servers like that anyway heheh

  17. Hi! You can call me Strawberry (she/her pls). I'm a college student and I just turned 21 a week or so ago actually, heheh~ You probably won’t see much from me publicly I don’t think (other than in the chit-chat section,) since I’m really just looking for people who wouldn’t mind letting me gush about my fandom to them >.< So…friends, essentially! I’m not really one to post my art on forums, but there is some on the instagram page in my profile if you’re curious. I've been pretty down lately and wanted to find someone to talk about fun things or maybe even watch the aforementioned anime with. I do have anxiety so part of me is pretty nervous to post this, but…I still wanted to try! I'm someone who gets crazy thirsty for those sweet sweet bishounen (♡´w`♡) I like to draw, write/roleplay, make ridiculous inside jokes and overall rn I just want to share the absurd lil anime I'm into with someone who wouldn't mind listening! I’m even playing the otome game based on this show currently ^o^ It’s in Japanese so I’ve been using a site to translate it. I’m having a lot of fun, but I don’t have many friends so it’s kinda sad not being able to share anything ;w;  


    Ideally I'd like to chat on Discord if at all possible, it's just more comfortable for me there. That being said, pms here isn’t out of the question either…Discord is just my preference! I think that's about all that needs to be said for now. I eagerly (yet also somewhat nervously) await your response! (•̀⌄•́) A little aside, I might take a little while to reply at first because I do get anxious kind of easily in new places, but I’ll do my best! Thanks for understanding <3
