Kitaseno-sensei’s comments on EGA Cover Illustration

Thank you as always for your support.
This is Kitaseno Yunaki.

The illustration drawn by Yuzuki Kihiro-sama has been released on the Official Narou Contest website!
The splendidness of this illustration is better seen than described, so it would probably be faster if you saw it for yourself, don’t you think?

Now then, for those of you who have seen the cover illustration, there is a little quiz I would like to give you.
*imouto*
*imouto*
Q:Who is the protagonist of this series?
*imouto*
*imouto*
Yes, it’s Anri-san, isn’t it.
Well then, about Anri-san’s position on the cover illustration, please take one more look.
*imouto*
*imouto*
*imouto*
Anri-san? No matter how you look at is, she has the
LAST BOSS’ POSITION.
*imouto*
*imouto*
Normally on the cover, the protagonist or heroine stand at the front, but Anri-san is at the very back… in other words, in the background. The way this is drawn can only be said to be outside of the norm.
When I was first handed the illustration drawn by Yuzuki-sama, I thought in disappointment;
*imouto*
*imouto*
These people really understand!
*imouto*
Eh? Wasn’t I disappointed with the illustration?
It’s more of a “Damn, they really got me.” sort of meaning.
*imouto*
*imouto*
Now then, please look at the last boss’Anri-san’s eyes.
She’s a normal bishoujo isn’t she. Both dignified and beautiful isn’t she.
*imouto*
To those of you who see this and think, “Huh. She doesn’t look mean at all. What a let down.” I say this to you… How naive.
*imouto*
This is her normal mode, or in other words, her this-is-how-she looks-once-it’s-been-through-a-camera-and-picture form.
As for a picture drawn to the image of what somebody who had seen her in the eyes pictures her as…
Unfortunately, people would get angry if I revealed too much, so I shall end the spoilers here.
If you want to see, please buy the book and check for yourself. (Shameless advertising.)
*imouto*
*imouto*
Incidentally, with Anri-san stuck in the last boss position, the delicious parts were taken by Miss Leonora.
*imouto*
*imouto*
I actually wanted to comment on the spine, and the back cover and stuff as well, but because they weren’t released publicly, please wait for the real thing.


TL Note: You better buy the damn book.

    1. What? You still had your sanity?

      Or was it like the inn lady where you only caught a glimpse, then get distracted by Leonora’s PLOT and Tena’s size.

  1. You better buy the damn book

    Ah. Sorry, I won’t be buying the book. Everyone complains they can never find me a Christmas present, so I am putting it on my list (along with a link to it) so someone else will have to buy it for me XD

    PS: Christmas is too damn commercial nowadays.

      1. But, you see, the instruction was not to support the author… it was just to buy the book!!!

        XD

        But seriously, I would buy a digital copy… but they seem not to do those of LN’s until they’re out of print…

        1. Not at all! It was a good question, since some people (like the clown dudes for Slime Datta Ken) like to upload the illustrations.

          My stance is to not do it at all though. If keeping illustrations off here means even one more person will buy a copy of the novel, it’ll have been worth it in my opinion.

          Plus, the price of the novel (inc. shipping) really isn’t that expensive. It’s like 3 subway footlongs in the USA. If you buy more stuff, then the overall shipping is reduced even further.

          People are willing to throw money at translators to get them to translate. Is it really that unreasonable to expect them to throw money at the author instead?

      1. If you like it, support it.
        I think this is some kind of marketing technique.
        You make them crave for more.
        ……………I like it.
        Wish I can buy it this year.
        Thanks for letting us know and ,…
        Keep up the good work!!

  4. Anri-sama~!

    I did not expect the Lich to have a funny hat though. Also didn’t expect to see out fiery red princess to actually look Princess-ish, I was thinking more like a warrior princess kind.
