I’ve been laughing over this dumb edit for 20 minutes
I’ve been laughing over this dumb edit for 20 minutes
Unsure how I feel about Rejet’s choice of glasses for me again in this
Anti×Revival -Bloody Easter-
Edited a quick pitch change to create a duet, surprised no one else has attempted something like this before.
Reiji in the left ear, Laito in the right.
i experimented in mp4 format. The video turned out to be short, bc each fragment was draw frame by frame (i`m just died) this is a hell of a time-consuming process. i`m not particularly versed in this, perhaps it could have been done easier lol
but it turned out well i think?
The Final Confrontation
Kyaaaa, es hermoso! Ahora que lo pienso… es un cuervo, no?
Seguro viene de la referencia de los ghouls :3c
Lo saqué del lugar donde venden los almohadones de DL, así que es real~
That’s what they’re going for? I know they can design better than that, they could at least have it follow the theme of the other house crests.
Personally still consider the one I came up being better suited.
* Carnelian Blood is a Manga x Music x Live project that was announced around Febuary of this year, made by Rejet which is the same company that created Diabolik Lovers. And according to their Twitter it’s a “A new blood-curdling saga spelled by father and son.” The 5 new guys (who are all brothers) are part of a band called “Erosion.” The manga is on The Official Carnelian Blood Youtube Channel and it is officially dubbed in japanese. They also post samples of the CD Dramas, which are called Voice Dramas in this case.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The 5 guys you see up there ARE NOT vampires, they may be wolves but that’s just a theory. And they are a ROCK BAND not idols.
SO, Why are we saying these universes are connected? Well, there seems to be many aspects in Carnelian’s story that HEAVILY connects these two.
🌹 First, and something small to note, is that Satoi is the ilustrator for Carnelian Blood and she was also the original ilustrator for Diabolik Lovers. Now for the real interesting part.
🌹 In the most recent chapter Rejet has released in Youtube (Chapter V) the Vibora, Wolf & Alder/Eagle Clans are mentioned. These three clans are sub-species that were formed by the Founders a.k.a Carla’s & Shin’s race.
🌹 At the end of that same chapter, the “Arrival of the Red Moon” is mentioned; remember that during this time the powers of vampires are weakend AND IF THAT WEREN’T ENOUGH:
🌹 * The Complete Synopsis for Carnelian Blood literally mentions the Founders (also known as First Bloods, same thing) and “The Illness that killed them” obviously refering to the Endzeit. It also mentions how the Founders were locked away at this place called Banmaden (also known as Pandemonium) which is the castle where the Founders, Carla, Shin & their whole specie, lived at. You can read the English Translation of the synopsis, done by @kurokosworth, HERE.
🌹 The most impressive thing in the synopsis is that it seems that the character ‘Carnelian Brecht’ may be the creator of the Endzeit…. You know what that means?! That he’s the one at fault for creating such a virus that ended with one of Diabolik Lover’s most powerful races. Well… almost since Carla and Shin are still alive…
🌹 *** Another small note is that in the CD/Voice Drama, named “Dangerous Brothers”, it is mention that the 5 boys go to Japan, Kaminashi, not only for their debut but also because they went there as a mission to get something or someone THING IS at around the end of the full CD drama, you can hear an old BGM that was utilized for Diabolik Lover’s older situations CD’s (You can listen to original DL BGM in this VIDEO at 6:49 min) ALTHOUGH keep in mind that Rejet tends to reuse their bgms STILL it’s something to take note of.
🌹 *** In another CD/Voice Drama called “Exciting School Life” it is mentioned that the boys, once they arrived to japan, they have to attend school, which most of the brothers didn’t want to but didn’t have a choice. These 5 guys assist the school named “Hoshiin” and on their way there, a character named Toxin took a wrong direction and his brother Neight stops him and tells him “That’s the direction towards the other school “Ryoutei”. Ryoutei is the High School the Diaboys attend at. (Thank you @46snowfox for clearing this up for me!) (You can also listen to them mention the school at the end of the sample)
🌹 Finally, the Carnelian Blood Manga takes place during the 18th centry. Which makes it possible that we may see the great battle that happened between the First Bloods/Founders versus KarlHeinz & Burai and/or the creation of the Endzeit.
☪ All of this is made my brain EXPLODE. If they ever do an actual crossover, show us the war or we see young Carla & Shin in a different perspective- I’LL DIE. That would be SO cool and it’s already cool enough that Rejet decided to connect these two stories like woah.
For those who speak spanish, if you guys wish to learn more about Carnelian Blood @46snowfox translates the manga in spanish (The translation is in the comment section of each chapter) and unfortunetly only the first chapter is translated in English (Turn on the subtitles of the video) but if you know of anyone who is doing the other chapters, please do tell me!
Hope you guys found this as interesting as I did!
Lip sync test, model is incomplete.
Another WIP commission in progress…
I don’t often type my thoughts here, for many a reason. I’m rather private in working through my recollections and my followers I’m aware are most likely fans rather than following me for fictionkin related reasons.
However, if one is interested in listening to my vaguely confused ramblings about the Demon World’s politics, feel free to continue reading.
Recent events in this world have been reminding me with increasing severity glimmers of memories that I’ve had for years, but as I had nothing more to base it on dismissed them (as is often the case). I have many concepts arise in my mind, and picking through intrusive thoughts, imaginative wanderings and simple desire is an often delicate and slow process.
But the protests across the world currently have brought these memories back once again. This is not the first time, for I’ve had it for years previously, so I can at least rule out my mind simply introjecting current affairs into my perception of my past. But I know at some point the ‘Crow Clan’ was attempting to demand better recognition amongst vampires.
I’ve yet to figure out where I saw it, but it was on written paper. It may have been a newspaper, a private sent message via familiar or even on papers at some sort of strategy meeting. It’s still all incredibly vague, and I find it frustrating being unable to pin this down, which in part prompted me to type this out.
I know they were unhappy with their role in society, and they had been becoming more difficult to control over time. Rebellions in the past had often been quickly quashed, but it was starting to become more noticeable, causing a chain reaction of spreading to other pockets of ghouls and instilling more ideas of uprising among them as well. The ‘Crow Clan’ seemed to be more of a band of those who wanted recognition as equals, as they turned their original name of crows from one to mean servitude to one that encouraged rebellion.
I do not recall perfectly, as either they had no clan symbol before simply due to lacking that authority or they had one that was assigned to them as a form of ‘branding’. In either case, before they started demanding more recognition their symbol was barely ever seen by most vampires… or seen as worth paying attention to.
This new design was of a crow from the side, wings spread and head curled with an open beak as it’s feet were stretched out beneath it, grasping their choice of weapon - a polearm. I believe it was quite roughly painted with dry large brushstrokes in contrast to our more clean designs, but I’m not able to recreate that currently, so this is an attempt of what I do recall:
I was never particularly involved with ghouls myself directly. Ghouls were usually servants to the casual vampire civilian rather than for our family, we had familiars and other vampires work for us instead. But I can imagine that part of my role as the acting head of my family was to send a message to control the riots.
I’m currently unable to recall what action I took, though It’s quite likely I did reinstate threats of retaliation should they not behave via written statement. It would have been expected of me to and have reflected poorly on us not to make some sort of gesture, so running off of logical assumption it would be a fair guess to make.
It would have been more of a political statement than any sort of actual genuine involvement on my behalf. I wasn’t involved in the trade myself, though I did attempt to at least have base understandings in most fields if I was to ready myself for the idea of running it one day. A future that never occurred, unfortunately.
I’d also like to clarify, as I’ve had these memories since before reading Lost Eden, and have only read my own route from there, I’m unsure if any of this matches up to another’s timeline. It is however on my to-do list to check through at some point, but feel free to inform me if you believe any of this matches up to one in particular so I may refine my search.
It shouldn’t need to be clarified but as I don’t trust the minds of humans I feel the disclaimer is required that even if I did attempt to enforce the class divide amongst demon kind within DL, in human form now it’s clearly more advantageous to work towards equality across all classes.
I’m rather more exposed to an over abundance of empathy now in human form which I never had before. So it is best not to attempt to force human morals on demons, we simply have different physiology.
I’m content to colour some more, so I’ll take a DL manga panel or page request if there’s any interest to suggest one. Please do be very clear about what it is you’re suggesting however, provide a link if need be. You may submit through the ask box or Tumblr IM.
The almost complete collection is here.
I may return to colouring manga pages once more very soon.
