The Kaori Yuki thread

I could see in the manga thread that many people here share my love for Kaori Yuki works. She is probably one of my two favorite mangaka(The other being Kohta Hirano)

I love everything in her mangas: the beautiful and detailed art, the twisted storylines, her reference to fairytales and the gothic inspired dressing she loves to draw her characters in.

My favorite two mangas of her are Ludwig Kakumei and Godchild. Because they are result of the refiniment her style has get over the years. I love Angel Sanctuary and count Cain, but they are kind of messy compared to the first mentioned.

At the moment I am looking for scanlations of fairy cube because I have only read one chapter and I have a really soft spot for fairies. 

So, let's share the love (And the links emot-smile

Re: The Kaori Yuki thread

Her manga is gorgeous. emot-keke So far I've only read some of Angel Sanctuary and all of Ludwig out so far, and while I liked them both a lot, Angel Sanctuary confused me so much and it was hard for me to keep up with. I love Ludwig, though, and I can't wait to read more. I'm curious about what her other mangas are about too.

The pace seemed kind of weird sometimes was slow and sometimes was fast. I think it was  because AS was the first long manga ms Yuki had to do.(Count Cain was put on Hiatus at the fifth volume to continue with AS, that's why Godchild look so diferent) I think she didn't know exactly that she was going to draw 20 volumes at the end.

I love Ludwig, though, and I can't wait to read more. I'm curious about what her other mangas are about too.

I'm sad that Ludwig only have one volume and I want to know if it'son hiatus o cancelled emot-frown

Re: The Kaori Yuki thread

Angel Sanctuary remains, to this day, probably my favorite shoujo manga ever. I loved Kaine, Coun Cain, and just recently, I started reading Godchild. Kaori Yuki never fails to impress. Some friends of mine have suggested reading Neji, but I've never been able to find information on it online, and it's not been released in the West. Does anyone know anything about it?

Re: The Kaori Yuki thread

sakura-crisis.net used to have scans of it and also of many of kaori yuki works but the site seem to be down for a while. Let me search into my cds maybe I have the scans somewhere here.
Neji didn't appeal me much except for one chapter.

Sakura Crisis shut down, but their http dump didn't; you can download all their work here. emot-smile

Kaori Yuki keeps growing on me, like a virus. I'm picky about my shoujo and she's consistently kept me interested, Angel Sanctuary was frankly a nerd orgy for me, since I had such a blast recognizing names and places. (Granted she took a few uh..liberties, but hey that's half the fun.) I noticed in AS I suffered from minor character syndrome; all my favorite characters were ones off the main cast. (Asmodeus lol and to a lesser degree Zaphkiel) Her art style has definitely improved over the years, but really I wasn't complaining about AS at all. (Actually I believe I used Lucifer in a blog layout...but he had a business suit and a snake and oh god etc-wankgirl)

Then she writes a series where the main character is a necrophiliac. My god. etc-love

For those who don't know, Fairy Cube is being translated by The Waffle House. They seem to be on the ball about their intent to complete. Unfortunately, so far they've only done half of the first volume, so you're probably caught up.

Oh thank you, their are one of the best sources for Yuki's work I was afraid we lost them forever.

In another ilustration of the Angel Lost artbook he is wearing a black plastic straightjacket etc-wankgirl

Rawr. etc-wankgirl

Is Satan ever portrayed as anything less than hot anymore? I hope not. But actually, he's not that high on my list in Angel Sanctuary. Apparently I have a weakness for blind angels (okay I'll skip the best part because it's a big spoiler) and pimp angels that should really be fallen but dress so well they get to stay in heaven.

It's physically impossible to outdo this for Evil Cliches That Make Gio Happy.

Seriously, if anyone EVER took the suit, snake, wings, and rose motif* (can the furry coat, not his style) and drew Akio with it, I would print it, stick it on the ceiling over my bed, and never leave my room ever again. Oh god... etc-wankgirl  etc-wankgirl  etc-wankgirl

* Really it's the suit and the snake that do all the damage. To my not having a raging sex drive. etc-wankgirl

Edit: I get the award for most shlicks ever.

If he is, I don't want to know. Raphael's probably my favorite character, or at least, he has been for a long while. I get so caught up with all the different characters that it changes periodically, but yes. Raphael (and Michael) are at the top of the list. I have a weakness for Michael, admittedly... I think it's the fishnet. school-devil
