Dai Shogun Motherfucker!
Two months after I promised, I finally got the guts to open my copy of Gaim the Guide wide and scanned the gorgeous illustrations. /o\
Sorry, these are the best I could do, unless I tear the binding and take the book apart, but HAHAHAHAHAHAHA yeah no. /o\
It’s not easy being green…
Is it me, or do green Riders just get the short end of the stick all the time? Kitaoka’s illness, Kickhopper’s life in general, Yuuto and Phillip’s existence being so fragile and Date’s bullet in the head thing.
To be fair, some of these issues are resolved by the end of their respective series but not all of them. I realised this after noting that I seem to always love green Riders… and their tragic stories. Upon drawing the 5 Riders here, I also realised that they all have a very important significant other- whether or not that adds to the pain, I’ll leave up to interpretation.
I could probably rant forever about the tragic lifestyles of each pair, instead I wanted to give each character something to sums up their tragedies. I put a bit of thought into the items they’re holding, what it means to their character, and to the relationship they have with the partners in the background. (Major spoilers for each of their respective series that explains what everyone’s holding in this post)
TL:DR - I love green Riders
Green Riders are the best
