Re: Uragiri. Someone at the ANN forums brought up the possibility that this may be an OVA rather than a full-on series. I hadn't thought of that. Kinda of a bummer thought. Of course, what worries me most is that the manga isn't finished as far as I know. Nor do I know how close to being done, it is. Uragiri is so unlike anything Odagiri has ever done, there's no way to predict its outcome.
Speaking of Odagiri, I've said before that Uragiri reminds me a lot of Silver Diamond in looks and storyline. I found out somewhere that Odagiri and Sugiura are friends and even traveled together. (To the US, I think.) So it's not surprising that the Odagiri's Uragiri reminds me of Suguira's SD.
The one posted to shibuya and the one I gave you are different. The one I gave you is just Naru and you know who.
Really? Then I'll have to watch this one. I assumed that they were the same. oops.
It is hard for me to picture as well, epsc the kissing ones but I liked the winter ones. I agree about the chin, that was weird.
Some of them were nicely done. Whenever there was kissing, I tended to think they involved someone else though, especially if it was Naru who initiated things. It just didn't seem right. Mai kissing Naru worked for me but not really the other way around.
*tries not to think about the overly large chin pictures*
edit: Gah! You'd think by now I'd remember where html codes work & where they don't.
edit 2: Oh, the chibi Naru ones were adorable! I especially liked that very first one of him with a panda. That was too cute in a before he became like he is kind of way.
I saw that on your LJ. (Stopped there first.) As much as I support Naru x Mai, I have trouble visualizing it. The picture never seems quite right to me. I guess I have problem picturing Naru in any sort of tender moment. LOL But it was good to see others trying to visualize the moments. (Except for the artist who gave Naru a huge chin. It's a strong dislike of mine. blech.)
