JOJO loot (a few 'firsts', picture heavy, talk heavy)JOJO loot (a few 'firsts', picture heavy, talk heavy)

AlienEmojiAlienEmoji6個月前Loot
I finally had time to sit down to write a new loot post, and my dudes it's going to be a long one because I have FEELINGS and I like to TALK ABOUT THEM

Anyway, on with the show!!

Kakyoin (Nendoroid, Good Smile Company) ITEM #729564

I wrote a full review of this figure when I first got it, but I wanted to include it in this loot post as well, as it's a part of this season's haul.

To recap:
I love Kakyoin, this is my very first Nendoroid, he has no flaws. (Both the Nendoroid and just Kakyoin in general)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/06/07/2230698.jpeg

Kakyoin (Kotobukiya) ITEM #27221

A relic from the ancient year of 2000.... this figure actually looks nicer than I expected!
It's a bit rough by today's standards, especially Hierophant who is very poorly poseable, but when it comes to Kakyoin he actually looks much, MUCH nicer than I dared to hope. He has a strong and more stylized form and decent sculpting, and the face, while not the best thing ever, is much more detailed than I thought it would be! I also really like how his shoulders look on this one, I'm a sucker for those pointy shoulder pads lmao

It came with two interchangeable right arms, one being posed down by his body like his left one, and the other being in a pointing position. I chose the latter, as it looks more cool and dynamic. This figure has a nice commanding presence and a strong silhouette, and I think it's really cute that the stand is heart-shaped. I am, after all, just a fool who likes heart-shaped things.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272257.png

Hierophant also came with what I think was supposed to be its foot unravelling into a tentacle, which I really wanted to use because I'll always be the guy reminding everyone that Hierophant is not actually a humanoid stand, but I couldn't get its normal foot off. I am scared of pulling it off too hard and accidentally breaking it so I just left it with two normal feet. A bit of a bummer, since I love the fact that Hierophant is actually just a long string that takes humanoid shape as a decoy, but I'll live.

Kakyoin (Trading figure, Banpresto) ITEM #235084

Originally I wasn't gonna get this one because of its, uh... odd chibi proportions, but the more I looked at it, the more endearing I found it. It's a weird little figure but it actually looks nice and I was, once again, pleasantly surprised. It's kinda cute and looks great in my Kakyoin collection! I am really fond of his face, because, in my opinion, it REALLY captured his features well! If only this beautiful face was on a better proportioned body lmao

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272259.png

The only complaint I really have about this one is that mine came with a slightly smudged eyebrow, but that's obviously the issue of my specific figure, not the series in general.

By the way, his box has this very randomly placed rerorero writing on it? That's stupid and funny and I love it

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/04/12/2192956.jpeg

DIO (Ichiban Kuji, Banpresto) ITEM #79158

Oof, okay... this is where hell begins.

DIO... oh where do I even start with DIO.
A protip might be a good idea: Never, ever, start liking something ironically. Because at one point the meme you created among your friends will turn into a genuine appreciation, and you will be stuck with a stupid crush on a terrible character, who will forever remain as a dark spot on your otherwise pristine record of favourite characters who are all good, sweet and kind boys and girls, and you will have to live with that.

I hate DIO, because I grew to genuinely adore DIO.

This Banpresto one was SUPPOSED to be my one and only DIO merch when I bought it (and you will soon see how poorly that plan went).

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/04/12/2192879.jpeg

When I was choosing my 'do it for the meme' DIO figure I took both price and look into account since I didn't want to throw too much money into it (again... you'll see how that turned out), and this was the figure I decided on. It was actually one of my favourites AND cheap, so that's a pretty good turnout!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272310.png

I love the pose and expression of this figure, very confident and cocky. He comes with stairs, because yeah, this megalomaniac WOULD have his figure come with a set of stairs just so that he could feel like he's above everyone. How very sexy of him to do that. Ugh.

He also has his bitch-ass sideways smirk and that stupid fucking collar that he wears like once, why does he wear the collar, why is he like this, wh anyway even though his shoes are not accurate to DIO's Part 3 design, I actually really like how they look.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/04/12/2192880.jpeg

Another thing I love a lot about this figure a lot is the sculpting of the fabric on his torso. I love the folds and wrinkles of it, they could easily just make it completely tight and form-fitting, but they didn't and I love that.

The colours seemed nice, but they are a bit dull. The yellow has a dirty shade, and the green leans more towards turquoise (though I do love the shade of it a lot). I mean don't get me wrong, the inaccuracy compared to the anime version doesn't bother me because Jojo has no palette, but.... well, I got another DIO figure which is so vibrant and radiant that it makes the Banpresto one invisible when standing next to it.

DIO (Real Action Heroes, Medicom) ITEM #21312

So, I still can't 100% believe that I actually managed to get my hands on this one.
RAH figures seemed like the type of figures I looked at once, saw the aftermarket price, and fully accepted I'll never be able to own one, because I couldn't possibly justify spending so much on a figure with the income that I have. And then I managed to find one at a VERY reasonable price, right here on MFC!!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/05/30/2224943.jpeg

This neon vampire is absolutely breathtaking. His face and hands are sculpted GORGEOUSLY, and I am especially in love with the hair. The curls that fall on his face are beautiful.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/05/30/2224939.jpeg

His colours are so, so bright, which is something I'm extremely happy about, I LOVE intense, bright colours. The yellow really makes him stand out, and the shade of green is perfect.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272251.png

I love seeing DIO's outfit in actual fabric, it's so poofy and it looks amazing. I love that he has knives. Knives are one of his best traits. He's really well poseable and holds his pose strongly like no one's business. He might be my first grail figure that I never knew I wanted tbh.

I posed him based on one of my favourite JoJo panels with the very real dialogue that is real;
https://66.media.tumblr.com/4b076626fb65dc081b3b61c7a5315e28/tumblr_inline_pr7n9iYUij1qcfonf_500.png

Also, his goblin shoes? Breathtaking.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272273.png

Over Heaven (novel) ITEM #104569

I have yet to read the English translation of Over Heaven, aka DIO's diary, but I couldn't not add this gorgeous book to my collection. I skimmed through it online to see how it reads, and I really enjoyed what I read. It gives a very interesting take on DIO and I know I'll love reading it once I finally finish Stone Ocean.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272247.jpeg

Over Heaven looks gorgeous, especially without the dust jacket.
There are several of Araki's excellent line sketches in it, as well as a full-page illustration of what I like to call clubbing DIO.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/ad4dd14eb6c1c2ae40e82a0de55db632/tumblr_o0radsGGpZ1sh11j9o1_400.png

Not much more to say about this, aside from that I'm very happy to own it.

DIO animation cel

Okay TECHNICALLY this is not in my possession yet as I had to ship it to my overseas friend's address, since the ebay seller did not ship to my country, but I have bought it and it's currently in her hands, so I decided I'll include it in this loot post.

The final DIO for my collection is even more special than the RAH one, because of course a smitten artist like myself was not satisfied JUST owning a gorgeous and expensive recreation of DIO in figure form. No, this guy had to go even further and get his hand on a ~genuine portrait~ of the object of his affection.

https://i.ibb.co/zJ3Vjm2/cel-dio.png
(photo taken by my friend)

It's an animation cel from the 1994 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA which I personally absolutely loved - certainly not as much as the original story Araki wrote, but there is still SO MUCH to love about the OVA. The animation, for one, is extremely weighty and at times highly, HIGHLY impressive.

It was actually the OVA that made me love DIO this much, and it was largely due to his English dub, which I could listen to over and over tbh. He sounds amazing, he looks amazing, he acts like the same arrogant bitch but with more class.

This cel is from the final episode 13, DIO's World, at about the 24:35 minute mark (right after the beautiful ORA voice break, one of the many things that make the OVA a blast to watch).

I really love this cel, especially as DIO's red eyes are clearly visible, it's a beautiful shot.
My only less than positive thought about it is, that it depicts high DIO, when just the regular megalomaniac DIO is my preferred version (it's the heart headband, I love it so much lmao, AGAIN, im just A FOOL who LOVES, HEART SHAPED THINGS)

Maybe someday I'll come across a cel of him.
Heck, if I'm SUPER lucky, maybe someday I'll come across a cel of Kakyoin, which appear to be ridiculously rare. I've seen a few so far but they are all from later episodes which... hmm, let's just say that I have mad respect for Satoshi Kon, but somehow the episodes that he directed for this OVA have a completely off-model Kakyoin and does not look good to me.

Okay I'm done with DIO (for now), so let's move on to characters who actually like.. deserve love.

Jotaro (Master Stars Piece, Banpresto) ITEM #63453

This figure makes me feel nostalgic for a show I've only seen this year, for a time before I was born, for a place I've never seen, for a person that doesn't exist, and for a character that's not even my favourite in the series.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/06/04/2228219.jpeg

There's something about Jotaro. The fact that he appears in Part 3, Part 4, briefly in Part 5 and also in Part 6 makes him feel like an old friend, a familiar face, and a dependable person. I love all JoJos a LOT, but Jotaro is the one that makes me feel the most at home.

It took me like 30 minutes to assemble this giant of a figure because I was constantly terrified of accidentally breaking something, but the end result was well worth my struggle at 8AM when I haven't gone to sleep yet.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/06/04/2228217.jpeg

Man, this figure is GORGEOUS. It's massive which obviously allows for more fine details, and the scale really doesn't disappoint. Jotaro's face looks very youthful and he actually passes for 17. He has a very slight blush on his face, which adds a LOT of life to the figure. The colours are fantastic. The purple shirt and his bright belts REALLY pop out from the dark blue of his uniform. The sculpting is very, very nicely detailed, and his shoes? Lookin' dapper.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272289.png

In my opinion, this is the most beautiful Jotaro figure on the market, or at least one that appeals the most to my figure preferences. By the way, did I mention that this is a prize figure?

I'm extremely happy about having this figure because even though Kakyoin is (clearly. no seriously tho it's not DIO please don't think it's DIO) my favourite character, I feel like a Jojo collection could never truly feel legit without a part 3 Jotaro. He's just such an iconic character with an extremely iconic design.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/06/04/2228218.jpeg

The ONLY downside of this otherwise flawless figure is that apparently no one taught this boy how to use his legs, because even with the supports on his feet, he has a tendency to fall over quite a lot of he's not leaned on anything.

Jot4ro (Jojo's Figure Gallery, Banpresto) ITEM #609605

This was my first Jotaro figure, and I don't remember if I decided to buy it before the classic Part 3 one because I found a good deal, or because I was just watching Part 4 at the time. It might be the latter, as I think that it's definitely thanks to Part 4 that Jotaro became one of my top tier Jojos.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/04/11/2192198.jpeg

I really love the first outfit Jotaro wears in Part 4, so that already makes this figure very very nice. I love the flowing of the clothes, it's very dynamic and organic, and I love the jewellery - the little heart pin on his collar especially, I don't think I even noticed that when I watched the anime. I also love that they decided to paint him with lipstick, since random lipstick is an aspect of Araki's later work that I really enjoy. It's fun, it's bizarre, it's Araki's character design. All in all, an okay figure, though the face is certainly not the best.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/04/11/2192200.jpeg

Giorno (Master Stars Piece, Banpresto) ITEM #117000

This is an absolutely gorgeous figure that ALMOST matches up to the Jotaro one from the same series.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272252.png

First thing I want to point out is that his suit is coloured with a slightly more reflective/glossy/shiny paint, which gives you a pretty good idea of what material the outfit would actually be made of, and it also makes it look totally different from Jotaro in "texture".

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272254.png

His colours are beautiful, I've been yearning for a good splash of PINK in my collection, and this is it. Setting him next to the radiantly yellow DIO really makes up a bright spot, which I love, since the shelf was getting a bit too dark for my liking with both Joseph and Jotaro being on the darker side.

All in all the sculpting is also very nice and the pose is beautifully dynamic (and iconic!), but I think Jotaro's figure has a much nicer face which makes him look much more 'alive'.

Oh, when it comes to shoes though, Giorno wins, his shoes are very lovely and have a nice little ladybug zipper detail which I was really happy to see!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272274.png

Josuke (Jojo's Figure Gallery, Banpresto) ITEM #469495

While I did mention that Jotaro is the JoJo that means the most to me, I do actually love every single JoJo, and I needed to add Josuke to my collection.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272246.jpeg

It was sadly hard to pick which figure to go for with Josuke, because well.. I don't really like most of them. I REALLY wanted to like the Master Stars Piece one, but the face on it just doesn't say Josuke to me, it doesn't have that friendliness to it.

Thankfully, this figure captures him very well! I love the casual pose, and his face looks great! I bought it used for a low price hence why it looks a little bit worn down, but it doesn't bother me too much.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272255.png


Killer Queen shirt (UNIQLO)

Something a bit different, I managed to get my hands on this Araki-designed t-shirt.
I've been hoping I could get an original Araki t-shirt sometime and this one is pretty much perfect. Killer Queen is one of my favourite stands, and I LOVE the asymmetric design and just... the bizarre concept behind it. Killer Queen dancing with a ballerina. Sure, why not!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272266.png

I can't really tell if the ballerina is supposed to be a Jojo character, I assume not because I can't pick up on any known characteristics, but she could be a part 8 character and I'd be none the wiser since I haven't caught up with the manga yet.
Feel free to let me know who she is if you can recognize her!

I love this shirt a lot due to it's asymmetric design, I almost don't want to wear it because I don't want to stain or damage it, so it's a special occasion shirt lmao


Rohan (DXF, Banpresto) ITEM #145303

Rohan is probably one of my favourite characters in part 4, purely on the basis of being such a mean bitch.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272261.png

There are many figures of him that are objectively and subjectively better than this one, but this was the first one I got my eyes on because it depicts him with his art supplies. I'm an artist myself, and I really wanted a figure that would instantly make it clear that Rohan is one of us.

All in all, a nice figure!

That's it for the JoJo part of the loot post! My JoJo shelf is growing very nicely and looking fine, and you almost can't tell that Stardust Crusaders is my favourite part!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272265.png

On to the last two items...


Kirishima (The Amazing Heroes, Banpresto) ITEM #772722

I was SO EXCITED to see that Hero Aca best boy was getting a figure! Since then he had more figures announced and I couldn't be happier, especially as the upcoming season will really put rad red boy in spotlight!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272244.jpeg

I have to say I was caught by surprise with just how damn nice this figure looks.
I expected lower quality due to it being a prize figure, but the sculpting and paintjob on this boy are absolutely wonderful.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272245.jpeg

The hand is very nicely crafted, as is the cloth of his outfit. This was a GREAT figure to kick off all the upcoming Kirishima figures, and if the rest of them look as good as this one, I am going to be one very happy Red Riot fanboy!!


Basara animation cel

And of course, I wouldn't be me if I didn't have at least ONE Macross 7 thing in my loot post!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2019/08/03/2272243.jpeg

Okay so this is a fun one.
This cel is from what might be one of the worst episodes of Macross 7 (episode 39), because, while a few things happen that progress the plot, all in all it serves more like a recap episode. Big battle is over, everyone rests and various characters talk about what just happened and what the current situation is. There is a LOT of re-used footage in this one, even more than in other Macross 7 episodes, largely because one of the storylines is about a character putting together what's basically an AMV, which just happens to look exactly like the footage we've seen previously. What a coinkydink!

ANYWAY, I'm guessing that maybe because so much footage was re-used, the few new pieces of animation that were added had a little bit more time put into them - this cel being one of them. When I first saw this scene, it really struck me.
The song being sung is the beautifully bittersweet Submarine Street, and it's one of the few times in the series where the mouth isn't just vaguely flapping open and close as the character sings, but the lip movement actually follows the words. And atop of that - it's the first and only time we see Basara cry in the show, which on its own is a memorable and heartbreaking moment.

Here's a gif of the scene;
https://i.ibb.co/Y3GysPC/2.gif

When I saw this cel, I HAD to get it. It's an absolute highlight of an otherwise sub-par episode, and one of my personal favourite pieces of animation in this show, as the way it carried Basara's pain in that moment felt very real.

AND THAT'S THAT!
I really hope that this was at least a bit interesting, if not even enjoyable to read!
Feel free to strike up a conversation, as I clearly love to talk a lot lmao

Cheers!
-Jim

strawberrylatte (6個月前) #64902300Yeah I've found that they tend to make characters look sunburnt sometimes. Kinda ironic for Dio :')
I own that shadow Dio figure and while I like his face, I'm also not a fan of how they painted his hair. It looks kinda gritty and unfinished.
Shame, as I love that look of him. Maybe if he'd been a larger scale that could have been avoided.
Nothing but love and respect for Jonathan Joestar ❤
Aww that's sweet. The Crusaders for sure would welcome you. They'd be a cool bunch you could listen to for hours.
Thank you!! :D


Yeah from the photos i saw he usually does actually retain a pretty good face, and the pose in general has a lot of movement to it too, i love everything about it except the actual quality and size of the figure lmao

and no problem! <3

AlienEmoji (6個月前) #64898279I think their weakest point tends to be face paint (on such a small scale I can see why), and I'm not fond of how they paint larger surfaces of skin, which is why I'm avoiding the shadow DIO one by them
Bless! I'm always happy to hear Jonathan is beloved by someone lmao
and yes exactly, they are such different characters that it's hard to compare them
tbh the stardust crusaders are like, the second fictional group of people that i would actually want to meet (first being the Undertale cast lmao)? usually i feel like meeting my favourite characters would be awkward and embarrassing but crusaders come across like they'd be cool with you no matter what kind of a freak you are lmao
And that's great!!
Mad respect for anyone who can put up with charcoal lmao, that was the bane of my existence in college

strawberrylatte (6個月前) #64898023Whenever I see a new figure from them, I'm like..."but what does it really look like..."
I tend to wait long after release unless it's limited and I really love the character. Kinda hate how much the prices rise on those >.<
I'm tempted to pick up the Rohan memo holder because he looks good.
Ah Jonathan is actually my fave JoJo after Giorno. I love them both...and Dio lol
Yeah I never really got the ranking thing tbh. I like all the JoJos for different reasons. Each one is unique and everybody likes different personalities, so there's a JoJo for everyone ( ^-^)/★
I really like Jotaro too. Stardust Crusaders does have that nostalgic big road trip adventure vibe. And I love the Crusader crew.
Yes, I draw :)
Though I work primarily in traditional media. My digital art is rusty. I much prefer working with pencils and charcoal.

solluxcaptor (6個月前) #64898073Woah, amazing loot! I used to be a pretty Jojo focused collector so it was kinda cool to see all the new stuff since I stopped keeping up with it. The cel is super cool! And the RAH looks amazing, I love mine too :D All of the Jojo RAH are spectacular

Thank you! :D

AlienEmoji (6個月前) #64898003Yeahh Di Molto Bene tend to do that...
I might pick up the Bruno pen if I ever find a really good deal, but I am not really keeping hopes, prices for Di Molto Bene stuff just tend to rise with time from what i've seen
Characters like Jonathan help you keep faith in humanity tbh, a real inspiration
and yet here i am falling head over heels for that DIO motherfucker
It always hurts a bit to see people rank JoJos and put Jonathan at the bottom of the list, he deserves so much better! Then again ranking JoJos is a fool's errand anyway, it's apples and oranges, my preferred ones literally tend to shift based on which one I'm currently thinking of LMAO
The only exception being Jotaro who's just very near and dear to my heart because SDC is my favourite part and it feels super homey so he has that weird nostalgic factor to him
Do you also draw? <:

strawberrylatte (6個月前) #64863865That's true. I was super excited about the pens, but then I saw that they were kinda lacking the detail shown in the prototypes.
I'm always on the fence about Di Molto Bene because their quality varies.
I will still pick the pens up though, but they're not really a priority.
Absolutely! Mama capo ftw!! <3
I really love characters like Jonathan too. He's near and dear to my heart. I love gentle and pure hearted characters that always try to do good despite circumstances.
It's very motivating.
And I get that too. Araki is for sure very inspiring and one of my fave artists.
I'm glad he was able to help with your art rut. Those are the worst @_@
And you are very welcome <3

Sundae (6個月前) #64859634Hey there! It's been awhile, hope you've been doing well ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Awesome loot! The RAH Dio is especially impressive. I love that they gave him all the knives haha​

I love how Kakyoin's nendo came out too! He easily has the best faces of all of the Jojo nendos so far imo. I was really hoping Bruno would come with this expression: ​View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://66.media.tumblr.com/b9b7af6d62eb88278cb98ab62d7f86e7/tumblr_pnpgkiCqpr1xdp5z0o5_r1_540.gif
I was planning on buying him because he's my favorite from part 5, but the price is a bit much considering how little he comes with. I'm still stoked that Mista is getting one though, hopefully they make the whole gang eventually! I'd also love to see more characters from other parts, since they've announced so many I assume they're selling well.​

I didn't end up picking up that Kirishima, but it looks like he's finally got several figures in the works so I'm excited to see prototypes!​

The animation cel is really cool as well, it's great that you were able to find such a pivotal scene from that episode. Overall nice haul!


Hey! I think I'm doing pretty alright, hope it's the same (or hopefully better) for you! <:

And of course, if he doesn't have all his knives whats even the point LMAO

I'm pretty sure all of us Bruno fans hoped for him to come with that face plate u_u
I was also very much considering buying him but after the extras were revealed, ehh.. i'm not so sure. Unless Mista has like, REALLY fun extras, then I likely won't get him either bc whats the point of having any other vento aureo nendo if mama bruno ain't there...........

and yes!! it would be great if they did a full squad for bucci gang, la squadra and the crusaders! personally I'd love to see nendoroid abbacchio, melone and avdol!

the shelf i designated for my hero academia might be a bit too small to properly accomodate the new kirishimas i will probably get so i need to figure out how to resolve that issue lmao
i will definitely preorder this one ITEM #836930 as soon as i have some money to spare, and i'm really excited for the reveal of the kotobukiya one!

and thank you! <3

AlienEmoji (6個月前) #64858970I think the closest to a good Bruno figure that gets his beautiful face pretty well is the pen one by Di Molto Bene, but I am not too wild about it's posing and I am not 100% sure if I trust DMB's quality. My Statue Legend Kakyoin looks great, but some photos I've seen of other character statues are pretty rough..
And yes, exactly! If he was just a badass capo I wouldn't be as moved, but just... the pure goodness in this man's heart!! in my opinion he's the character that came the closest to Jonathan in terms of pure goodness. we stan mafia mom <3
his art inspired me so much, I was in a huge miserable art block rut and had no idea where i want to take my work next and then i got into jojo and like.. literally a whole new world of art opened up to me. araki is one of the few people that i genuinely and whole-heartedly look up to.
and thank you <3

That's true. I was super excited about the pens, but then I saw that they were kinda lacking the detail shown in the prototypes.
I'm always on the fence about Di Molto Bene because their quality varies.
I will still pick the pens up though, but they're not really a priority.

Absolutely! Mama capo ftw!! <3
I really love characters like Jonathan too. He's near and dear to my heart. I love gentle and pure hearted characters that always try to do good despite circumstances.
It's very motivating.

And I get that too. Araki is for sure very inspiring and one of my fave artists.
I'm glad he was able to help with your art rut. Those are the worst @_@
And you are very welcome <3
