Greetings to my first proper post of 2015 (3 months in). Now that I'm not consistently sick as a dog from the most persistent cold ever nor spending my time either engrossed with my job or engrossed in doing nothing, I can get back to proper reviews, and we're starting off with one of my favorite fantasy series of last year that wasn't Rage of Bahamut: Genesis. Read on ahead for my take on Chaika the Coffin Princess!
Just when I thought I was running out of ways to insert a penguin into anime (realistically there's never a shortage of ways anime can include penguins), I get the opportunity to draw a penguin in an intricate dress. Chaika's outfit is one of those designs that is both inspiring and painful to look at - it's appealing and unique, but comes with the stipulation that you'd have to draw it over and over again. I'm thankful I only had to draw it once! Honestly I think I've made Chaika less cute by turning her into a penguin.
