Hanakage is the sequel to Hanamachi Monogatari.  Once again featuring artwork by Noboru Takatsuki, this game takes place a few years after the original.  There are both new characters and older versions of characters from the original game.

Below, you'll find some more art from the game that I could safely post here.  There seem to be more explicit scenes in this game than the first one.

More Cade Skywalker

Here are some more scans of the hot bounty hunter and Luke Skywalker descendant from Star Wars Legacy. In addition, I've also included a scan of Cade's hot partner. Once again, pencils are done by Jan Duursema.

 Escaflowne is one of the more beloved anime series of the 1990s.  It mixes fantasy, sci-fi, mecha, and romance to tell the story of a girl whisked away to another world.  The movie version is notable because it's a reimagining of the anime series as opposed to a sequel or a side story.

Both the anime series and the movie are available from Bandai Entertainment.

Recommended Link: 11/20/2009

There's only one link in today's post but it's a doozy. 

In the game Dragon Age Origins, there is apparently a scenario where the main character can have sex with another man (link may be NSFW).  It's awesome to see something like this in a mainstream (and critically acclaimed) game.   It's nice that some developers realize that a portion of their gameplaying audience would enjoying seeing something like this.

Assault on New Olympus

Assault on New Olympus is a one-shot featuring The Incredible Hercules and Spider-Man.  I haven't read any of The Incredible Hercules before but after reading this, I want to.  I definitely like Marvel's portrayal of the mythical hero.

Rodney Buchemi does the art in the scans below.

Get Backers: Manga Style

When the guys of Get Backers were first posted, the focus was solely on the (gorgeous) anime artwork.  Now, it's time to spotlight the original manga.

The original manga was written by Yuya Aoki and illustrated by Rando Ayamine.  Tokyopop was releasing the manga in America but has lost the rights.

Revisiting Taishi Zaou

Taishi Zaou (aka Mikiyo Tsuda) is one of my favorite yaoi manga artists.  I haven't posted much of her stuff since the Artist Spotlight post back in 2008, so I felt it was time to feature some more artwork.  There's a mixture of manga and novel illustrations in this post.
