He also displayed a few as yet unpublished production sketches for the Hanasaku Iroha cast (pardon the poor-quality photos). Incidentally, Kishida-san mentioned that he doesn't actually have a preference for drawing girls — it just happens that he is usually commissioned to design female characters. So, he often relishes the opportunity to draw male characters, like Tohru, for example.



Mr. Kishida has excellent taste.

Thanks for the sharing the vid and the pics.

I don't even know who this guy is, but he's a winner in my book.

I'd assumed that anyone in this sub-forum would know he is, but it seems I'm wrong.

Kishida Mel is the illustrator who provided the character designs for Hanasaku Iroha. He also provided the character designs for the Atelier video-game series, as well as for the currently screening Kamisama no Memochou.

Like many popular artists, his aesthetic style is instantly recognisable, especially when it comes to his drawings of girls. No wonder, then, that he is in fairly high demand in the Japanese anime/publishing/video-games industries.
