Welcome to the final stretch. It’s June, which means most of the current series have about 4 episodes left to go.
Today’s post is all fantasy and sci-fi – with art from Granblue Fantasy, ID-o and Clockwork Planet.
Just in time for Halloween, this week’s selection of fan-art comes from series that all have pretty dark storylines – starting with the most violent of the lot – Drifters.
It is Miku’s 9th birthday today, so I decided to share in the celebrations by posting a (very) small portion of the fan-art that appeared today.
This week’s set of fan-art includes a Happy Birthday pic for Love Live!’s Umi, a farewell for Konosuba – which finished this week – as well as an image from Osomatsu-san, which isn’t a title you’d associate with your average moe images.
Today – 3 March – marks the celebration of Hinamatsuri, also known as Girl’s Day. On this day, families pray for the health and happiness of their daughters. Learn more about the festival and its origins here.
On 3 February, Japanese celebrate Setsubun – the day before the first day of Spring. Previously seen as marking the end of one year and starting the next, it is often accompanied by rituals to cleanse the evils of the old year and chase away evil spirits for the new year. Read more about the festival here.
Two more sleeps to go until Christmas. I think for most people this is where they finally consider the year a done thing.
