((There's a part of me that's starting to wonder if you made Akasha just so you'd have a justifiable reason for your characters to survive scenes like this, and therefore you'd be able to put them through the grinder again, and again, and again... because you care, of course.))
Woah! I did a sketch with the the exact (well aaaalmost) poses and scene! That`s kind of freaky. Love this one though. Don`t know the story but it`s full of emotion. Like it! And love your drawingstyle. Good job! *browse gallery*
Was this right after Nyo stabbed a spear thing into Ryuu's chest? Can't believe he's crying about it now. And Ryuu looks like he forgives him. O.o I have a feeling it goes much deeper than that but I'm not gonna say anything.
