I'm going to try to make this is a short as possible without going into too much detail. Ever since my Rurouni Kenshin fan-phase, I've been interested in the history behind Kenshin's past of the Bakumatsu. It's not that I went to wikipedia to read up on the important people that took a role in the war that would change Japan from the Tokugawa era to the Meiji era, but none the less my interest was picked. A few years later, I found the Hakuouki anime, which goes into even more detail (but from the other side) than Kenshin (and the guide book I have) did. And now, another year later, I'm totally
into Hakuouki. 8D;
I would really like for Aksys to release the game in Europe (preferably on 3DS, so I won't need to by a psp), because this game/series is awesome. <3
You know how it goes, when I like series a lot, cross-overs are unavoidable.
I'd wanted to do this before, but once I found about Kenichi Suzumura voicing a red-head in the new game, Urakata Hakuouki, I just had
to draw this. I had to.
Sooo... Lavi as Okada Izou and Kanda Yu as himself, being a member of the Shinsengumi.
-Mugen is Mugen.
-Hammer is Lavi's Katana
-Kanda was found by sumi-e artist, Froi Tiedoll, on the streets of Edo. The man than raised him as his own son. The only thing this child was carrying with him was the sword.
-Kanda's always been fascinated by swords, and he's been training ever since he could hold a stick.
-At the age of 19, he traveled to Kyoto and joined the Shinsengumi. He serves under Saitou Hajime (might change, regarding the recent events in the manga, he might as well become a Captain/General himself).
-If I'd keep Lavi according to the character he dresses as, he'd be Ch˘su-side, and therefore Kanda's opponent.
-Kanda still has that curse, which to the captains' surprise is much like the effect of the Ochimizu.
-Sakurai Takahiro is going to voice Thomas Blake Glover, but Kanda does not suit his character.
-This is DGMXHakuouki, so yeah. o3o'
-I tried immitating Kazuki Yone's style (the previous artist for Hakuouki, her work is beautiful), but idk if it worked. |D Her linearting/sketching style isn't /that/ different from Hoshino's... or so I noticed. o3o
