Only official things, that is - meaning no fanarts.

Post, without spoilers, only names of characters, anime, or manga.

This topic could also come handy when we can change profile pictures for some characters that currently don't have nice...
Well, pictures.

Anyway, I just found rather nice cover of Dragon's Heaven manga (it isn't in MAL database), I think, with Ikkuru on it.

I cropped and uploaded picture btw...

Good idea for a thread if we stick to the subject. Kind of hard to find decent art for a lot of older obscure stuff though, so sometimes you just have to revert to screencaps and cropping them. Did this recently with Touch and Dougram a lot, then Leda, and a bunch of other stuff... I've gotten a little lazy about this over time though, especially with helping update MAL with some info. I know Vifam has like no characters listed and I'm sure there's plenty of others like this too.

On a uh side note, that NSFW picture of Four is ... amazing, lmao.

Echelon, were you the one who uploaded current picture for Yohko from Leda.

Just few days ago I re-downloaded some titles just for the sake of having screenshots for pictures - Leda included.

I'll add those characters these days.

Yup that was me, recently watched it and noticed the old picture wasn't too good. I did it for Tsuru! :P
(actually she wasn't even listed as the VA for her until I updated that)

Found some L-Gaim DVD and boxset covers as well. Not sure if they're all legit though



Got some other pics, but I'm not sure if they're official or fanart.

Big fan of Kenichi Sonoda!

I guess I should throw this site out, I've been following them for ... literally I think some few years by now. This guy basically just scans rare LD covers and such in awesome resolutions, HQ stuff:

Awesome Orguss pic Shiroth! As soon as I get my scanner up and running I'll have to post this Urusei Yatsura production sketch I have.
In the mean time Here are some Battle Angel (Gunnm) pics I happened to have.

Seeing pictures of the newer Gunnm sequel manga makes me pretty sad. I don't like how the art has evolved at all... never hear the greatest things about it either, but I'll check it out sometime when I finish Gunnm.

The old stuff is freaking amazing though, love the art.

In terms of story it was OK in the same way that the new Star Wars movies were OK (still decent but not what was expected). I do quite agree with you on the note of Kishiro's art style. Hos older style was all dark and gritty which perfectly complimented his story. His style in Last Order was WAY too clean & neat. I equate it to how some idiot thought it was a good idea to let BeeTrain make the Blade of the Immortal anime. }I

I have a bunch of anime images up here. They were mostly taken from an old archive I've got (the Venice FTP server, for those who go back far enough), and they were mostly all scanned/digitized in the late 80's-mid 90's.

I also made something of a music video with some of those images.

Not sure how helpful these are, but I hope you like them anyhow.

OMG!!! I love that first song! Megazone 23 woot! I have a bootleg tape of that one best of anime music CD that Rino put out. I used to jam out to that. In fact, when I got my new studio tape deck, that was the song that I used to test it. Also (sorry but I have to brag about this every chance I get), I have a vintage animeigo poster of that first Priss image that I got mint for, like, $5.
