130621 DontCryB by will-Ruzicka 130621 DontCryB by will-Ruzicka
So this one is actually kind of long overdo. I told :icongatonegroloco: that I would do this picture of Nakiami from Xam'd for him... but I wanted to watch the show first. And then I kept being side tracked with work and pushing this to the side. SoI finally did watch the first 13 episodes of Xam'd and it's a really good show and I don't think a lot of people know it, which is too bad.

The title of the image "Don't Cry" is a reference to her name and how she got it... if you watched the show you should know what I mean.

Thanks! That's why I wanted to watch a few episodes before trying to do this. Glad it worked out.

Great show, right in the footsteps of Eureka 7 and AO. WIsh their was a sequel or OVA.

Eureka is one I have yet to see... but I can see the comparison.

Check it out, fan belief is that they are both based in the same universe.

I've seen like an episode... I will have to watch the whole thing to see any connections between them.

It is! It's a little hard to jump into at first because of all the weird concepts going on, but once you get into it, it's really good. Kind of reminds me of a Ghibli film... like Mononoke or Nausica almost.

fun fact, they were aiming for the same feel as Nausica when they made her.

Well, it sure comes through. And her little glider thing reminds me of the ones in Laputa.

Yeah, I know this show. The animation is sick, specially in the first two episodes (with the explosion in the bus, and the fight with the giant monster) !!!

Good anime.

Yeah, Bones does good work. There are some moments where some wonky faces creep in. But when the action hits, it looks sweet.

Xam'd is one of my faves, Nakiami was a really good character too!

She is! I wonder why I never see any cosplay of her, it looks like a neat costume to make.

I can't wait to watch the second half... the damned first volume DVD I had ends on such a cliffhanger.
