I prefer her art over Na-Ga's

I hear some of the stuff she draws go for thousands of dollars. Her art is cute but I just can't help but feel like she's just riding on the coattail of Jun Maeda, who does the writing and the music, the real draw of Key's works.

She did put together the team that did Rewrite though, so I'll give her that.

I prefer Hinoue over Na-Ga. Hinoue's art is just beautiful. I feel as if most people who prefer Na-Ga, are comparing Angel Beats! and Charlotte to Kanon. Kanon was made in 1999, people need to realize that Moe back then, wasn't the kind of moe we see nowadays. I look at Air, and Misuzu's is just too KAWAII. I look at CLANNAD, and the character designs for them are beautiful. I look at Yuiko, Haruka, Kanata, A-Chan, and Komari, and they all look stunning and nice. I look at Rewrite and the uniforms make me want to cosplay. I look at Holy Breaker and the details from the hair to the eyes make me motivated to making a character like that. I look at Harmonia and I can't do anything but gush over how KAWAII Tipi is.
I honestly have to prefer Hinoue when it comes to art. Look at Rewrite. Rewrite is probably one of the best uniforms that Key has ever had in their Visual novels. Look at Kotarou and Rei's hair. Look at Tipi's hair for crying out loud. Her art is beautiful. Look at Holy Breaker 2. The kid she made in there looks absolutely KAWAII. Hinoue is one of the very few, who actually test out new and different types of Moe, and shines/shading. Harmonia showcases this the best. Not a fan of Na-Ga's moe that he tries creating, but I am a fan of his Kud [Insert Ayumi's nosebleed coming out]. She's too KAWAII to handle ☺️☺️☺️ Kudryavka, Nao, Kanade, Yusa (AB), Rin, Saya, Shiina, Yuri, Hisako, and Irie, are all too KAWAII to Handle. Glad Na-Ga makes Kawaii girls though. Can't say the same for guys. Let's hope the Jun Maeda x Itaru Hinoue collaboration happens again one day. Or even Jun Maeda X Itaru Hinoue X Na-Ga. We all know we need all of them.

I prefer her over Na-Ga tbh

I like her art in ONE

As an (amateur) anime artist, I really respect her a lot. Sure, her art style from the earlier Key works are not as refined as many of your typical generic "moe" style, but I love how it has a 90's look. If you don't know, her style also contributed quite a bit to the development of "moe". I really love the details she places in things like the character's eyes and hair shadow ands well as the "smoothness" she creates on the character. Sure, One and Kanon's art kind of looked like shit but artist who slowly develop a unique style of their own over the years through trial and error and still continue to stylise it are the best type of artists. This is perhaps one of the reasons why I prefer her over Na-Ga. People should learn that art isn't all about how refined something looks but rather how an artist uses his/her own style to construct an idea.

Her latest designs (Rewrite) are much better than her previous stuff. Definitely on par with Na-Ga now.


SIeepwalker | Apr 1, 2012 4:39 PM
I prefer Na-Ga too, but he's(she ?) not bad in Clannad IMO.
Yuiko and Komari (from LB) are not bad too but I prefer the chara design of Rin, Mio & Kud


GuyFreakz | Dec 26, 2011 2:12 PM
Clannad is her very best character design.
