For Monica feat. Saki by Kurumi-Lover For Monica feat. Saki by Kurumi-Lover
This was a picture I drew October 5th of last year (2016) for my favourite English voice actress Monica Rial on her birthday featuring my favourite character she ever voiced, Saki from Steel Angel Kurumi (remember, I'm Kurumi-Lover for a reason, after all). Monica has continued to voice many characters in anime I really like, and has been a constant throughout the changes in the years whenever I decide to watch something dubbed.

Poor Saki is a gotdamn tragedy and I love her so <3 //sobbu
I think there's a picture of my cosplaying as her in my gallery somewhere... Oh, here it is:

One of the catchiest J-pop opening mastery of the late 90s early '00s, honestly.
Crazy to think it was a full band and not all computerized synth pop ahhh
But yeah, as Kurumi-Lover, that song is in my head all-day everyday since 2002 so WHOOPS

Back in the day I bought a bunch of DVD's produced by ADV, and it seems like the trailers section always had one for Kurumi, so the song made kind of an impression on me a long time before I actually got to watch the show.

It has been a while since I have seen a pic of Saki, my favorite Steel Angel! Great work!

She is probably the best. I'm not sure which one I love more though since I am Kurumi-Lover after all, but they're both so good <3

I get you. There are times when I am actually torn between Saki and Karinka. ;-)

Wonderful. ^-^ There needs to be LOTS MORE Saki fanart out there, can never have enough. Also cute costume. 

Oh and while on this topic, there "needs to be" more merchandise for Saki aswell. Took so long for me to get ahold of a Saki figure after a friend mentioned having one. *Shifty eyes* Which now i may or may not have my Saki figure leaning against my Kurumi one... Only missing karinka now.

I think so, too. Just more art of the Steel Angels in general, honestly. And thank you, it's the only cosplay I've ever done coz Saki's da bes.

I know what you mean! I only have a handful of Kurumi figures (most of which are Kurumi--I have four) but I only have one Saki figure from the DX line. I think I got her around 2009 for a ridiculous amount of money at the time aaaaa
