holy crap.... I hadn't read very much description on this game before, but... is there somewhere I can buy it in english? XD I guess not, but it has been 2 years, so I didn't know if you'd heard anything (or even wanted to since you said you didn't like it)... even after reading everything, I'd be interested to play it anyway

but yeah, not being fluent in Japanese and all, it'd take me forever esp looking up kanji

Wowwww I'm really late hearing about this (huff huff) but can the entry be like a little one page comic strip? Or do you prefer entries that are more like pin-ups?

Uhm...I've checked all the suggested sites you put. Would it be acceptable if I base my entry mainly through what the review and trailer says? I mean, like I'll perceive my character pairing and idea on the review and trailer. I don't understand the language from the official site (I think it's Japanese).

so, if we do this......what kind of paint should we use???

I finally have time to get started!

I have one question. Would some of the pairings make absolutely no sense? I did my research and the characters look great, but I'm not familiar with the actual game so I would hate to end up drawing something that's like wtf those characters never even speak to each other. >,< ...or perhaps it doesn't matter since it's all fanart anyway...?
