Day 02: Favourite Anime So Far
(click to deviantArt & better fullview)
WELP I sucked today. Completely lost track of time. Plus, I hate drawing when people are around. So, this is late. Dunno if I can do one tomorrow, since one of my roommates is having people over for Super Bowl Sunday [for those of you who don’t know what it is, think ‘World Cup’ except just for America, and with
hand egg American football] and I might be a ball of anxiety depending on how boisterous they all are.
ANYWAYYYYY, my favourite anime thus far… it’s hard, picking just one. I love different genres, and always have a favourite within each; but to pick just one is always a frustrating task. In the end, though, I have to go with Rurouni Kenshin. A lot of my art style is influenced by Watsuki-sensei, and no other anime has affected my interests quite to the level that RuroKen has.
RuroKen got me interested in being a mangaka, learning about Japanese history, learning Japanese, costuming, swords, martial arts… it even got me into other anime. I’ve bonded with so many people over the years through Kenshin, and though I only talk to a few of them now, I’ll never forget them.
Featured here, Kenshin and Kaoru. Pairings come and go, but for me, these two are just so right that I can’t ship either of them with anyone else.
Edit: Oh, right. Pose reference [here].
