This somehow reminds me of the American TV show Ghost Whisper T___T.

Do you have the link to the author's web site handy, by chance?

It's one of Suzuki Yasushi's covers that's on the anime web site at the moment. I wonder what Yasushi's version of Haruka looks like.

I remember you telling me that when you found images and who wouldnt mistake them for Naru and Mai. Glad you found out it wasnt them tho.

But if the anime went with Miyako's character design...I'd get too much of a GH vibe and that's not good either.
Dont we already have a huge GH vibe from this?? I mean look at the first page of posting, almost each post mentions something about GH (I know Im not helping )

Currently reading the manga so Ill finally know what to look forward too when the anime starts

It's kaminagamanabu.com.
As for his version of Haruka, check the relationship chart on kaminagamanabu.com/works/yakumo.

Speaking of GH, there's also this uh Yasuhara look-a-like character in Oda's version... His name is Ishii.

Assuming I'm looking at the right place, I can honestly say that that's my least favorite version of Haruka. Here's hoping that version is not the basis for the anime's version.

Where did you click cuz I cant find her anywhere. Hmmm I also like how Yakumo looks on the Drama CD cover.

Hopefully the offical site will have anime pics up soon so we can end this debate

Here it is:

Spoiler for Relationship chart:


I should probably post the illustrations by Oda Suzuka too.

Spoiler for pic spam goes here:


I will laugh if the anime version comes with another set of new character designs.

On the author's main page, choose the option "Literary work" from the menu bar. On the next page, choose the second item on the menu sidebar.

Or go straight to this page:

That picture is by Oda according to the copyright info.

Yeah, soon I hope. How dare they keep us in suspense like this?

Edit: MidnightReverie beat me to the punch in terms of timing & quality.

AGSAJDGHDJHD HE SO LOOKS LIKE HIBARI!!!! <3 <3 <3 Actually with the eye it looks like Hibari possessed by Mukuro... *fangirling*

Yeah I was pretty sure the drama cd cover was also her work. I do like her Haruka but yeah not liking the novel vers, she looks too old in it.

I highly doubt BeeTrain will go with designs as complex as that for a tv series, so expect new designs.

Welcome aboard. And which character designs are you referring to? It's not like we don't have 4 different versions of the leads' designs or anything.

I don't know, they don't look like they'd be that much more complex than what they used for Phantom of the Inferno. For both Miyako's and Oda's designs, that is.

Anyone actually read the novels?

(I only read until Vol. 2 'cause they were the only ones that get translated into my language.)

HOLY!!! Smack me in the face and throw me into an ice bucket because YAKUMO IS TOO HOT TO HANDLE!!! *becomes a puddle* Gah, I so hope BeeTrain will go with Oda's character design...*squees*

And I agree with LKK that novel!Haruka is not very lovely. Her hairstyle looks like she came from the 50's, just add in a poodle skirt.

Ooo...6918's love child maybe? But his red eye is on the wrong side...maybe it's 1869 after all.

Edit: You can see Ishii (Yasuhara's doppleganger) in this pic.

Wait. Back-up there, missy. Where did that picture come from? Is it an ad for the anime itself? If so, we may have our answer as to the anime's character designs. Or is that too much to hope for?

I was thinking the same thing since it says TV in the corner and obviously thats Oda's art work. The other thing it maybe is just a promotion for the series in Asuka.

Can anyone read it??

It's promotion ad in Asuka. It's probably a long way to go until we some some anime designs come forth

Though, considering Oda's design was used as the drama CD cover, I think it has the highest probability of being used as the base design for the anime It definitely will be simplified though knowing Bee Train. Now that I think about it, I swear I got the high res cover of the Drama CD back before... Hmmm...

Oh btw, if the anime use Drama CD casts, you can have OnoD as Yakumo and Hirano Aya as Haruka. I'm srs.
