Dreams & manga artists

Ohayo minna-san, how's going? ^.^
This is Lucien. Welcome to my new (and final) blog Skyblue.nu, a.k.a. the titular dream...because I've longed to own this domain name for years, but since the tld was taken mine was to be just that: a dream. Then in spring 2020 I found out the domain was to go back onto the market the following summer. I waited patiently for months (stalking the tld with the hope the original owner wouldn't renew it) until the release the date....when I saw my dream coming true with my registration of the domain....YEEEESSSSS!!!!!! ^___^

For the site's first look I've decided to use an old premade from last year because it's one of my top favorites among my latest design works...so meet Skyblue.nu's version 01 About exes, a div layout featuring some of Katekyo Hitman Reborn boys; I hope you'll like it, but I love any kind of constructive feedback an criticism. n.n

Now for the real topic, I've decided to share a (very) personal top 10 of my absolute top favorite manga artists - actual term would be mangaka; they're ranked based on how much I love their artwok...the character design, let's say. And since it's about art and not the stories, I'm only including mangaka of whom I've read more than one series - meaning I love the way these manga artists design indipendently from and no matter what their series are about. Here is the list.
  • X) Tite Kubo (Bleach)
  • IX) Arina Tanemura (Full Moon wo sagashite)
  • VIII) Miwa Ueda (Peach Girl)
  • VII) Kyosuke Motomi (Bleach)
  • VI) Kanan Minami & Kotomi Aoki (Honey x Honey Drops & Boku wa imouto ni koi o suru)
  • V) Kaori Yuki (Angel Sanctuary)
  • IV) Kazuya Minekura (Saiyuki)
  • III) Yuu Watase (Fushigi Yuugi)
  • I) Ayano Yamane (Finder series)
  • I) Clamp's Mokona Apapa (Cardcaptor Sakura and X1999)
I'm in love and awe of all of this mangakas, and I try to buy every work of theirs that gets released....and I wholeheartedly suggest you do the same, as pretty much all the works of each of these artists are absolute beyond-awesome must-reads. ♥♥♥♥

Sorry for all the fangirl gushing, but I really can't help myself when talking of those artists...but I'm gonna stop before becoming obnoxious. LOL See you all on next entry.
Take care guys, and have a wonderful week. ♥
