Thank you! I has become really hard for a het pairing to win me over but I was shipping these two so hard it was not even funny. Towards the end I kept muttering "marry him already, woman!" Anyway, this anime is a masterpiece and this art is gorgeous.
This is pretty cute. I can honestly see Balsa doing that. You know she's the one who would wear the pants in that relationship lol. Since I just got through watching the anime(thanks to Netflix) a few days ago unfortunately the frustration of this not actually happening is still fresh in my mind. Poor Tanda destined to be the unlucky childhood friend it seems. Thankfully we fans have beautiful pics like these to ease that frustration lol.
I've heard that in the novels (there's 10) Tanda and Balsa may actually end up together near the end.
Unfortunately only two novels are in English, the first is the one the anime is based on and the 2nd doesn't have Tanda in it, so...time to learn Japanese? SO frustrating. >( They are supposed to be kid's novels though, so I don't know how muc more shipping is in it. I've heard the Anime actually had more shipping moments in it, though I'm not sure. I think they both have the scene in the Hunter Cave.
This is so gorgeous. I love that it looks like water colors, but then again it also looks like a colored pencil sketch, but could also be crayons I think it appeals to me the most because it looks like a beautiful water-color painting. & I love this couple ^-^ You're excellent at body proportions. They look perfect~
