When i watch the PV's/trailers of this upcoming anime Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist) this morning, i feel that this series will be one of top anime in Spring 2011. The animation is awesome and drawing style of this anime is very good. The manga of Blue Exorcist created by Kazue Kato who is a female mangaka. It's never cross my mind at all, the creator of this manga is female. This is due to the art style of shonen(young boy) rarely adapt by female mangaka. The only famous female mangaka who i know which is very successful in using art style of shonen is Hiromu Arakawa.
The opening theme song of Blue Exorcist is Core Pride which sing by Uverworld (notable song - singing in Gundam 00 season 2 opening song)
Another trailer of Blue Exorcist
Kazue Kato has a lot of talent and potential in drawing either manga or illustration. Her artwork and illustratation is very beautiful, impressive drawing & design. She can bring out the emotion & feeling of her artwork which is not every mangaka will be able to pull it out. The artwork is "alive" when you look at it just like when you look at Mona Lisa. If you don't believe in me, you can see her artwork below:
|A cute girl holding a jack-o-lantern (Halloween Theme)|
|Two young boys enjoying their snack and dessert in the summer. This picture make me want to eat shaved ice|
|This guy look badass|
|A cute girl in Kimono|
If you like her artwork and illustration, you can check out her blog.
P/S: I hardly can write a thought-provoking post on weekdays due to time restriction (working). In weekdays, i write more about anime, music and funny post. In weekends, i will write more thought-provoking post on this blog as i don't have time restriction.
