Spoiler for NSFW:
This is not the picture I was referring to. It shows the same combination, but the President is holding Itsuko in it, tugging at a ribbon or something if I recall correctly. And Itsuko looks ... deeply unhappy, whereas the President has this triumphant little smile on her face.

Honestly, I don't even see that as sexual.

I honestly see it as "Itsuko broke her leg, and the Student Council President is carrying her to the infirmary".


While this picture is technically beautifully (nice line definition, nice coloring, etc...), I have to wonder just what the maker of the picture was thinking if he or she wanted this to come off as sexual, particularly if in an appealing way.

This is probably my main problem with some otherwise great fan artwork (for this anime and some others).

The recent controversial Kyon/Yuki series of images has wonderful artwork at a technical level, but the artist chose (for whatever reason) to give Yuki an "I'm getting raped!" face.

Conveying sexuality in a consensual way seems to be a challenge for some artists, for whatever reason.

Well, it's not so much the artist, so much as the audience. >_>

Well, this one from a few months ago notably doesn't come with that uncertainty.

Triple_R, in that image the SCP is only supporting one of Itsuko's legs and has her other hand on one of Itsuko's breasts. As someone who has passed a basic first aid course, I can tell you that that is not how you are supposed to carry someone who has been injured.

I've done first aid as well, and yes, you're right.

But it's also a very awkward pose, in my opinion, for sexually coming on to somebody.
Well, it probably wouldn't look that bad if not for the look on Itsuko's face. The look on her face conveys "pain" and/or "alarm" to me. That's where "Maybe Itsuko is injured and the SCP is carrying her to help, albeit clumsily" came to mind for me.

They're different ways of being held.

Otouto: Connected by the hands
Taniguchi and Kunikida: United by arms
Little Mitsuuru: Entwined fingers
Itsuko: Embracing
Ryou: Drawing near (to embrace)
Yuuki: Holding from the back
Big Mitsuuru: Princess child
Tsuruya: Shouldering
Shamisen: Buried face
Haruki's, I think, is saying something about a "forehead kid" being "tsun" as in "tsundere." Or, if "kotsun" is a sound effect, then it is about foreheads doing whatever makes the "kotsun" sound.

I'm not positive, but I think kotsun is the SFX for banging something together, or having something strike something else. In this case, forehead on forehead.

Haruki would like to see Kyonko ... in winter ensemble, with an emphasis on her ponytail.
Itsuko would like to see Kyonko ... in something frilly, and somewhat off-balance, emotionally speaking.
Mitsuuru would like to see Kyonko ... in a slightly tomboyish outfit, in full 'tsun' mode, or perhaps 'strong, independent woman'-mode.
And Yuuki would like to see Kyonko ... in casual wear, shopping, eating and/or drinking?

...

Will someone please translate the bits of text? ^^
