HAPPY DESU NO 
29th-Aug-2006 04:16 pm
Genki!
Happiness is waking up in the morning to have your Niisan saying, YOU CLONE, you're only interested in degenerating replicas (ah, so that's what they mean by self-absorbed ♥), and coming home at night to have your twin tell you redheads have more sex.



Anyway, this post exists because of a wish I made two weeks ago, one I didn't even realise had already been granted the second I'd made it. Niisan and I were in Kino checking out the latest Animedia, which has one heck of an amazing Megane Special (I'm not into meganes, but Niisan is, and the minute the two of us saw the Animedia special we reacted in exactly the same way). Heh. That was when I discovered the name of the artist who'd been doing the Getbackers, Trinity Blood and Princess Princess artwork I loved so much - and she's Nakajima Atsuko. (Or Atsuko Nakajima, whichever you prefer). We were talking about what we'd love her to draw, and I said, "If there was only one person she could draw, I'd want her to draw Asch, because she could draw an Asch even I would fall in love with."

And yesterday I found out I already had my wish. Nakajima Atsuko is the artist for the Famitsu Bunko version of the Abyss novels. So you can imagine how it feels like, finding out that not only has your favourite artist drawn for your favourite series, but also that you have three whole books of her artwork to find and fall in love with. (Now that explains why I could never take my eyes off the Famitsu version of Asch).

So, here's some of her artwork (it's ALL over Animedia and Animage nowadays, much to my intense happiness)! If she ever releases an artbook of just her art, I would be so into it. (I know there is the Getbackers/You're Under Arrest book), but I've been seeing a lot of really, really good work this year, and I hope one day it'll all get compiled the way You Higuri's has. You Higuri has a VERY VERY VERY good artbook out now. Niisan and I were looking at it, and she owns it, and it is UTTERLY amazing).

SO, NIISAN! ♥ Like I promised, a Nakajima Atsuko special!





You know, I can't believe the artist behind this picture is drawing Asch and Luke. HEHEHEHEH. (Careful when you click that link, and be ready to explain that Cain is a girl if people catch you looking at it). But seriously, he doesn't feel like Cain at all, there.













Oh jeez, remind me to upload the scans for the Animegane Special. I scanned it two weeks ago and argh, have not had the time to resize/upload/post. I've still not caught up on posting all the Abyss artwork I've scanned.



And of course, the majority of this post would be devoted to Abyss artwork. Those of you on talesoftheabyss have already seen this here, and you can give this part a miss. *grin* This is artwork from the Tales of the Abyss Famitsu Bunko novels. These are from the second book and the third book.

Naturally you will also find I describe the pictures differently on my own LJ than I do in a community. If you want the post that doesn't look like it's been written by someone who wildly supports Luke/everybody and Everybody/Luke, go here. ♥ If you want an extremely biased version that is very slash-friendly, read on. ♥

Warning: Artwork contains massive Abyss spoilers.



THIS IS HOW WE SAY I LOVE YOU IN KIMLASCA. ♥







Mieu and his little friend are so happy together. I think the cheegles multiply behind the covers of Abyss novels.







WATCH OUT, LUKE!



I can't help thinking Curse Slot!Guy looks an awful lot like the jealous boyfriend from hell.





Luke: Because I'm worth it. Seriously, does this not look like a shampoo ad?



Because do-it-yourself haircuts are all the rage in Markt and Kimlasca.







They'd make good poster boys for fomicry, wouldn't they?

Bookmark that came with the book:















Sometimes, I think Asch is never more beautiful than he is in this artwork, and in Eldrant.





Really, Luke/Tear is one of my true Abyss OTPs. Next to Luke/Natalia. I think that in every series I go for, I fall straight for the Main Character X Everybody pairings, all the time, which is why I can see Everybody/Yuuri and Yuuri/Everybody, too.







Luke: I SAID LISTEN TO ME, ORIGINAL IDIOT -
Asch: Yare, yare, yare. (You know, not like he'd ACTUALLY say that, but doesn't that look like the expression on his face?)

















ETA: ... at least I didn't step on the cheegle ♥

ABYSS SPOILERS IN COMMENTS TOO. ♥

I swear to drape myself all over you one day. 'tis infectious!
29th-Aug-2006 03:27 pm (UTC)
*radiates genki at you* ♥ I was thinking of going HIIIII at you sometime soon, but I was worried that you were busy with getting to know uni and all. But you are welcome to drape anytime. ♥ I like being draped upon. :D
29th-Aug-2006 04:08 pm (UTC) - =DDD
i'm torn between SQUEE-ing, crying, and laughing hysterically at that very very very gay arisada picture you've got there.

*settles for saving it to disc*
29th-Aug-2006 04:14 pm (UTC)
ACCURSED MINITOKYO and it's five download credits! Or I would have more!

HEEEE I AM GLAD YOU LIKED IT!! XDD

XDDDDDDD I did not even consciously think of it as gay, the gay just went like a SHOT TO THE HEART. ♥ HEHEHEHEH.

ALSO KAASAN check out the KH2 icons here. I have spent the past few minutes very happy at them, instead of reading my Constitutional Law readings like I should.

OH KAASAN much bigger version of gay Arisada picture. Click and have a cup of tea. It should have loaded by the time you finish. xD
29th-Aug-2006 05:05 pm (UTC)
OMG. SO PRETTY. I sparkle. Ok, I must now watch Trinity Blood. I have neglected the files for TOO LONG
29th-Aug-2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
HEEEE ♥ *sparkles back at you* I AM SO GLAD YOU LIKE IT! XD

I HOPE YOU'RE HAVING FUN WITH TRINITY BLOOD. I, er, usually only watch episodes with Cain in them. *grin*

... I HAVE SO MUCH ANIME sitting in my HD that I NEED to watch, man. You are my INSPIRATION. :D
29th-Aug-2006 05:20 pm (UTC)
I... This..... I am in heaven..... *drops and stares at the beauty of the Novel artworks*


29th-Aug-2006 06:23 pm (UTC)
♥ You. Are. SOCuteAdorableAmazingInTheSenseThatICan'tStopEmittingHeartsAtYou.

THEY'RE SO PRETTY, AREN'T THEY? *griiin* I never had a wish granted that was as pretty. Except maybe LUKE DESU NO. ♥

.... I SHOULD TELL YOU that after seeing HANI SEMPAI AS PAOPU FRUIT, I just... talked about it all day. To three different people. On three separate occasions, IRL. DAMN BUT I LOVE THAT ONE.
29th-Aug-2006 05:47 pm (UTC)
omg i like Asch!! is he more seme than Guy?? :D :D :D

and like. can i steal your asch icons! :P [i still have no idea what the whole thing is about, but i like Asch best now! haha]
29th-Aug-2006 06:20 pm (UTC) - BUT OF COURSE xD
If you ask me, Asch is the most uke in the entire Abyss world. ; ) But maybe I'm just biased. He acts seme, but deep down inside, he's really uke. >D (sucks, 'cause I really like Asch/Luke, but every time I try it, ASCH ENDS UP NOT BEING SEME).

Guy and Asch are... in my opinion, both uke. XDD I think Guy is more seme than Asch, but Asch acts more seme than Guy.

LUKE SEMES THEM BOTH INTO THE GROUND.

Sure! *grin* I'm actually delighted that you want to use my Asch icons without even knowing what this series is, so, THAT'S A RESOUNDING YES. You can have anything you want from here! *grin* ♥

... you know, WHY is it that so many people I am all "YAY ABYSS" at end up ASCH FANS?! I must be subtly emitting "YOU WILL LOVE ASCH" rays.

THIS POST IS MADE OF PRETTY AND WONDERFUL ART

and: redheads have more sex ... O RLY? i did not just think of the twins from ouran there. SIGH.
13th-Sep-2006 04:07 am (UTC)
I know! *beams* So happy that all this really good art exists in the world. Now all that's left is that I'd love this artist to do a really good GLOSSY artwork like the first one up there. With special effects and everything! XD

XD Seems like a lot of people thought about the Ouran twins! *grin*

Kasanoda up there is wondering why he does not get more sex. XD
29th-Aug-2006 11:03 pm (UTC)
You know, from all the previous pictures of cheegles I've seen, I thought they had flat ears like pikachus, not ... pineapple shaped ears. XD

The artwork is so pretty...

pretty...

*stares and wishes she could draw "pretty"* XD

The comment about redheads having more sex made me think Ouran, because you said "twin"~!
13th-Sep-2006 04:11 am (UTC) - Still Life of Cheegles In the Pineapple Grove.
*grin* I have always wondered how cheegles manage to stay upright, because it seems to me that those ears are way too big for a tiny little thing like that. ; )

Glad you liked the artwork! *beams* Sometimes I think the only thing that's missing from Abyss is it being in English MORE, darnit. ; )

BUT YOU CAN DRAW AWESOME. XD

*grin!* You're not the only one who thought redhead = Ouran! Although next to Kasanoda the Yakuza, the twins look more carrot-top than redhead. *grin* Unless I want to call Kasanoda maroon-top, instead. ; )
30th-Aug-2006 12:12 am (UTC)
YOU CLONE.

Aw. Reading that made me odly happy inside. XD
I will not drool, I will not drool, I will no- DAMMIT KEYBOARD.
13th-Sep-2006 04:13 am (UTC)
HEHEHEH YES. Next one will be, YOU REPLICA.

*smiles* I'm glad it made you happy! *beams*

*griiin* When I see pretty like that, I usually have to walk off and walk around the house to work off the excitement. *grin* That, or I end up banging my knee against the table. Or walk around with a stupid grin on my face. Like when I read the Abyss manga in the train.

OSJRioy@#$(@&#@*(#
OMGOGMOGMGOMO

I THINK I JUST DIED
THE ART IS SO PRETTY OMFGGGGGGG
13th-Sep-2006 04:15 am (UTC)
*GRIIIN* YOU ARE SO CUTE, Y'KNOW THAT? XDDDDD HEHEHEHEH. Your reaction is so FUN to watch. The art *is* gorgeous. ; )

Y'know, I'd want to get YOU into this game so I can see your pretty art. But I'm enjoying your Ouran art as it is. ; )

And I never knew you drew Zelos/Lloyd art until you linked it. IT WAS SO PRETTY. XDD Thank you so much! In Japan I suddenly sat up one night and declared, "I want Lloyd/Zelos doujinshi!" and I did acquire one, eventually. It has no plot but it's gorgeous.
30th-Aug-2006 09:09 am (UTC)
Yo... It wasn't my fault I stepped on the cheegle! :p

I read "self-absorbed" as "self-absorbant" and then my brain went right out the window. Although considering Luke and Asch sort of merge later on, I suppose self-absorbant is a suitable description... :D

And Nakajima art is tres tres sugoi - is mixing french and japanese and is therefore liable to gettng shot by a dozen other language purists. :p BUT AAAAAAAHHH! I SO LOVE THAT PRINCESS PRINCESS PICTURE! AND THE CAIN X ABEL (OR ABEL X CAIN, DEPENDING ON MOO) PICTURE! So pretty!!!! *emits Suzuki type hearts in your general direction*
30th-Aug-2006 10:21 am (UTC)
you stepped on a cheegle?! *outraged!* and i don't even follow the abyss fandom! -> HUGE weakness for cute things.

i want nakajima art!!! @_____@ did you bring that back to london? >D and i wnat a better look at that watanuki.doumeki doujin that you let me peep at. *pervs*

hope you're having lots and lots and lots of fun in belgium!! <333
30th-Aug-2006 10:02 am (UTC)
Haha!XD Check out my latest LJ art post, and be surprised with a LukeXAsch art like the 'Contra Mundi' one!XDXDXD Thanks for the random Nakajima Atsuko scans~!XDXDXD

Hmm... I was wondering if you have Uke!Guy DJ's...8D Ahehehe...

*pokes* I did a little research and some say there are AschXGuyXAsch hints in the Novel in these chappies.
Chapter 6
Chapter 12
Can I ask a little favor if you can scan some of these novel parts?XD I'll try reading it... hehehe...<3<3<3 I'll draw you more Mieu's and Luke's if you want! It's just that it's difficult to find a Mieu fan... and all... I'm happy to meet you~!XDXDXD
13th-Sep-2006 04:23 am (UTC)
*GRIIIN* Thank you so much for sharing the Contra Mundi Abyss art with us! I SO SO SO WANTED TO SEE Luke and Asch in THAT exact same pose. *grin* HEHEHEH.

You're very welcome for the scans! *beams* I actually scanned them all in one week once, but I tire very quickly of scanning, and then the semester started and I've been terrifyingly time-starved. I told myself I wouldn't scan in more until I posted what I've already scanned, so I really. REALLY. should get to it. XD

I actually have mostly seme!Guy doujins. And I lean very much towards the GuyXLuke side of the camp, though Asch occasionally turns up here and there in my collection. I have a very strange collection.
30th-Aug-2006 11:42 am (UTC)
MY LOVE FOR YOU IS STRONG, LIKE YOUR LOVE FOR ABYSS, WHICH IS REALLY STRONG, SO TOGETHER, LOVE IS MAKE THE WORLD ALL BETTER AND CHEEGLE-FILLED.

love,
your mama.
13th-Sep-2006 04:25 am (UTC) - HI MOMMY
Your Rock Lee shirt was love. XD Let me see if I can make it to at least ONE of your meetings this week to return it to you? ♥

I LOVE YOU TOO! *HUGS TIGHT* And THANK YOU THANK YOU for allowing me to admire your pretty red wig and radiate happy!Luke beams.

LOVE IS A CHEEGLE. ♥ OR AN ABYSS. XDDDD

WITH ALL MY LOVE,
Your daughter ♥
30th-Aug-2006 08:39 pm (UTC) - ohgod, my love for cheegles just multiplied by a million. O.o
THEY ARE SO DAMN ADORABLE. <3 SO MUCH CUTER THAN MY OWN CHEEGLE. T.T

It's not her fault she stepped on the cheegle! xD My cheegle cannot walk STRAIGHT, because he's gay for Jack.

OH GOD THE ARTWORK IS SO PRETTY. *reaches out at screen* It's really really amazing, wow. So beautiful. I know risax was looking at this post this morning, but I didn't realise how beautiful it is! I LOVE TEAR. Her eyelashes are so long, she's so gorgeous. <3

OMG. JUST REALISED HOW COMPLETELY INSANE I WILL GO IF YOU SHOW ME ABYSS DOUJIN IN SINGAPORE. I will go mad. WHY IS IT NOT DECEMBER YET. I tried to keep myself away from the KKM ones because it's.. pron, in front fo you. BUT I DO NOT CARE ABOUT ABYSS PRON. I WANT EET.

oh, and your voice is still the cutest thing I've ever heard - even if sometimes it is impossible for me to hear it at all. T.T
13th-Sep-2006 04:31 am (UTC) - See, Mieu is SEME.
I actually scanned in some Abyss manga that I can use to tell the LOVE STORY OF LUKE AND MIEU. Like this:



Protective cheegle.

... YOUR CHEEGLE MAY JUST BE GAY. But he's so cute.

Also your cheegle likes getting underfoot. But he is so cute when he squeaks.

HEH HEH HEH. I am so glad you like the art! I thought you'd like the Tear art, too. *smiles* Wait til you see the doujin I got you. Hope you like the art! It's the only het doujin I've ever bought, too.

*GRIIIN* CAN'T WAIT TIL YOU GET DOWN HERE SO I CAN SHOW YOU ABYSS DOUJIN. XDDD

I AGREE. I KEEP ASKING MYSELF WHY IT ISN'T DECEMBER YET EITHER!

I don't actually have a problem looking at Abyss doujin anymore - chieftly because I refuse to pay the asking prices. *smirk*

YOUR voice is the cutest voice ever. You never can get any intelligent conversation out of me for the first 20 minutes I'm talking to you because She's so cute! is all I'm thinking.
30th-Aug-2006 11:39 pm (UTC)
wah Xd i have like alot of those images that character designer her way of drawing boys is just soooo pretty *_*, and just how she puts the boys is such suggestive poses is an added bonus XD and now i might have to find and buy those ToA novels!
13th-Sep-2006 04:33 am (UTC)
*grin* I was actually inspired to make this post by one of your posts - you had a couple of anime magazines with her artwork? *smiles* And now I know it's her artwork, I can post it like a maniac. *grin* The suggestive poses are so much love, especially for her Trinity Blood work. *grin* I'm getting incredibly tempted to get the other Abyss novels because I am very amused by the artwork. *grin*

I was about to write THE ROSE OF MARKT, actually.

I use AIM! *grin* Sporadically, but I do! ; ) Username's the LJ username. *grin*

Heh, don't worry, this is the first time you're asking me! *smiles* ; )

Don't kill me if you get REALLY bad Abyss fanfic radiated at you. And even worse ideas. Like PeonyXDist. I WILL WRITE THAT SOMEDAY. I REALLY WILL.
7th-Sep-2006 05:29 am (UTC)
