Iconage, hrmmm...

New Icon, but it's not as clear as I'd like it to be. May have to try to play around with it more later.

I know that desdenova has an icon of Ni Jianyi as well... I never intended to make one of this character, but I couldn't resist that panel.

Update: Bleh, I've edited it twice, and it's clearer. Not sure it's quite as clear as I'd like it. Might toy with it later, might leave it as-is.

And as a side note: sheesh. I'm wondering if the Saiyuki anime intentionally left some...er... context out, or if it just got not-translated into the mix when it got brought over to the U.S., possibly to keep the ratings down a bit.

Damnit, went back and redid it and re-uploaded, but it's *still* not very clear. Hrm. Must toy around with this more later.

Just doesn't seem the same if it's got the words edited in. ;) It's a bit clearer now, might be able to get it clearer still if I toy around a bit. We'll see.

Thanks though. ^^

I know. I tried a lot to find a font that looks like comic lettering font, but couldn't. Anyway, the first one is just me going into pixel-level zoom and darkening the text with one-pixel-size brush. (But maybe I should have used dark gray instead of black to do that.)

At any rate, I couldn't figure out what the symbol below the text is supposed to be...

Iconage is fun :-).

A heart, if you haven't been able to see yet. ;)

Btw, hope you start feeling better. I'm feeling kinda crappy myself today, but I think that's just allergies combining with the crappy sleep I've been getting due to stuff at home. Meh.

Since you scanned that in, I assume you've also seen the other "unusual" relationship, which really threw me. O_o Though I guess in some ways it makes things make a slight bit more sense in the anime as well.

And then there's the cursing... I'm a bit surprised actually that the manga is only "older teen."

Indeed. Messed-up doesn't begin to describe it. I think poor Gojyo needs someone to pet him and make it aaalll better.

And, poo. Was going to ask if you'd seen Saiyuki: Reload yet, but I guess not. I was just musing on the coolness of the first two openings, and the utter lameness that is the opening for at least the first episodes of Reload.

Hrm, love the opening for second season. Some really nice images. I haven't read the Reload manga though, so I can't really say how much overlap is. I do know that the anime has some cute little omake type stuff at the end of each episode that's worthwhile, plus so far it's had one of the absolute cutest episodes of Saiyuki yet...
