Equus and everything that is beautiful in the world.
So. The cover for the latest issue of onBLUE has been revealed.
Truth be told, earlier I was putting my order for this month together (I am a fan of being very organized, not gonna lie) and was thinking “errr I should cut some of these anthologies” since anthologies are quite expensive (around $10 per book eeeek!) and on even months I get about five of them. And since Cab, Citron and Canna have a history on my bookshelf, I was thinking “…maybe onBLUE? Maybe I don’t need that one? ;w; Maybe?” But now that I’ve seen the cover…
You know how these things work. Also, it’s another glaring reminder that Kumota Haruko is in it again and I loooooved her story from onBLUE volume one. And Yamanaka Hiko. And Hideyoshiko. And Koiwazurai Shibito. But not just that, the contributers for tribute art and essays for Est Em include a pretty much all-star lineup. Especially Aniya Yuiji, Kumota Haruko and Psyche Delico—three of my favorite mangaka. Boooo onBLUE, you really know how to steal my cash. ;;
And then on the Comic Natalie page that linked this, the cover for Est Em’s Equus was also posted. (You might want to grab a bag to hyperventilate into because it’s just that breathtaking. /bad joke)
A pretty huge artistic difference from Hatarake, right? Est Em, is there anything you can’t do? Is there? Not to mention it’s just all-around beautiful—like an old classical painting.
sob Est Em, thank you for existing. orz;;; Excuse me while I just sit and stare at your tankoubon cover for an hour.
