Cool with great power comes great responsibility

Yikes, talk about overreactions. I think someone is looking a bit too much into stereotypical cultural innuendos . Personally that topic should be left for a sociology class.

Kiva, you are a very talented drawer. Been following your drawing with my mouth gaping open at your skill....my best attempt at drawing usually turns out as a with the head looking about the size of a melon at the end of a tooth pick

Keep up the good work, I look forward to seeing more of your drawings in the future. And remember, with great talent comes great envy from others ^_^

Cheers to Kairin....wonder if she'll ever head to the beach

Thank you for the kind words myrmicat! I'm glad you like my work. I must apologize if my previous post seemed a bit...out of line. Things have been a little weird here lately for me. But I digress.

In anycase, I suspect that Kairin will head back to the beach again. Afterall, summer is just around the corner.

Indeed. The way he effortlessly slides in and out on his tracks never ceases to amaze. And that knob is pure craftsmanship.

I actually thought that was a great show of restraint on your part Kiva, and your work is truly amazing.

Duly noted; sorry.
He brought up the drawer thing, and I just couldn't resist

Ironic isn't it. The picture I liked the most ended up being one that most people just gave a "meh" feeling to.
I clicked on the image on the AnimeSuki home page and browsed through the topic on a whim when I read this and just had to register and post a reply.

Honestly, some of the negative comments deserve one or more colorful metaphors. But I will be nice and leave it at that.

I personally loved the Spring Edition of Karin. Every time I go the the home page and see that, I can't help but smile a bit. It's like she's a little winded after ascending the steps just to come and say, "Hi." Don't change a thing.

normally, i'm a lurker, but it's 2am and i accidentally clicked on kairin and ended up on the thread.

after skimming, i'll throw in my 2 cents for redundancy's sake.

kiva, the picture is awfully cute, and it made me smile to see the usually reserved, fantasy-material-type kairin in a whimsical 'love hina-esque' mood. the proportion issues are certainly there, but they've been beautifully addressed, so kudos to those who gave some wise advice (takes me back to when i used to doodle myself and my more experienced artist friends would use an extra layer on open canvas to fix my posture and sizing )

er, to the heated protests of "dan"... i can relate to your frustration with the ideological restrains present in pop culture and our reality as a whole, but taking it out on a harmless mascot on animesuki?

now, really.

take that energy and focus it to the hordes of college students traipsing around their campuses wearing slight variations of the same hollister/abercromie sweatshirts. or Barbie manufacturers. that's a cause i'd like to help out in, for sure.

@Kiva128
I almost never go to the homepage, just go directly to the forums but a couple of days ago I accidently clicked my bookmark to the homepage and was blown away by the new Kairin picture. It gives me that joyful almost giddy feeling spring gives me after a hard winter. Thanks for your hard work.

Also, I've been meaning to ask what you thought of my winter banner. http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...259#post741259

Spring Kairin is very lovely! I like the way that she's drawn. If she were a real girl, I'd have to steal a couple of looks... (But I wouldn't just stare...)

Anyway, the two things that did make me nervous were a) the small fingers and b) the shoulder. But those two things are really minor, and can be easily dismissed as "that's just how she is." Konzept's modifications are pretty nice, I think.

I completely disagree with Dan. In fact, Kiva128, please draw Kairin more often in jeans like that. I like my women in jeans.

Ok so who is "Kairin"?

Did someone create her just for this site?

Is she basically just a blonde elf?

Why doesn't anyone just read the thread before asking this question... You are so far from the first person to ask this question that it just isn't funny anymore.

Thumbs up

I really like Spring Kairin because you can see her figure and she's not a skinny stick like most anime characters. So, way to go~ She's a cutie! I like her better in normal clothes like this than in her fancy formal stuff from before.

Nice pic, although her curves are a bit too exaggerated and pronounced, especially for an anime char, or maybe I'm just not used to seeing females in jeans. They tend to wear skirts in anime after all. =p

I'm sure I'm prolly the 100th person to mention this, but the absurdly short length of her right-arm is beyond ignoring for me. It quite simply implies a mismake by nature... which is not very hot. ;-)

Myname...

1. Have your read the title for this thread.. the part that says: "Kairin ~ AnimeSuki's Mascot"
2. Of course NOT! She grows on trees! lol
Yes someone created her for this site. There was a Maskot Contest sponsered by NightWish(th' admin) and Karin beat some druken fox girl. eventually~ But if it were a contest between this Karin and the second best then I think the second best would have won~ the adminz are more conservative of sorts~ they wouldn't pick a extreme side.
No offence Kiva but I like the original more.. it was more you. All the latest incarnations just have less feeling and more eye-candy boo~ boo~
3. Her hair always looked redish to me.. mm.. wonder how it would look as a rich black or pure white.

NoSanyWa...

Why?!.. How many people that visited the site have visited this thread. How many would bother to read it. You're probably presuming that since people see her on the main page they'll go like "who's that?!" "where's she from?" etc. like IT'S NOT NORMAL TO SEE A ANIME CHARACTER ON A ANIME SITE
Your always making such a big deal out of this, lol.
Don't you understand, to have anime character pictures on animesuki only freaks out the regulas..

Only people that are intrested in anime that <might> feature characters like Karin would come here. Face it this is just one of those things were you're your biggest FAN. Trust me.. been there so many times I can see it coming with my eyes closed.

Besides.. this is page 12. Sure I would read everything up to it, but I would find it wierd for other people to. Just as it's wierd for people to search before they ask..
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
BTW why was it ever funny back then.. shouldn't now be the time when it's supposedly funny.

I had an idea about using Kairin to help out the moderators and this is what I came up with.











If you want me to change the font or messages I'd be happy to and if you don't want to use them that's ok too since it was fun making them.

See.. look cute =3
