Where you belong. by Endling Where you belong. by Endling
Nabuca and Boo of Now and Then, Here and There.

A fantastic, but.. equally unsettling, sobering, cruel film.

Aaand these two were my favorite characters (tied with Sis).

For those interested in the film, you can watch it in its entirety on Youtube, starting here: [link]

Thanks for stopping by. :)

Boooooooooooo! Cry emote

I really did not like this show. Not only because of it's cruelty and messed up content. But because the ending utterly ruined everything it had built up for itself.

You have a very nice art style going here. Great stuff.

Oh my god Nabuca was my favourite, along with Sara. 
But Nabuca.

Thank you so much for your beautiful fanart, there's not enough for this amazing show.

This is an amazing work, and the first fan art I've seen of this show. I really like the drawing style in this, along with the shading done in it as well. Nabuca was definitely my favorite character of the show, but all of the others were great too, which is why it was such an amazing anime. But regardless, I'm in love with the piece and cannot take my eyes off of it. I truly do love this.

First fan art I've seen of this show. Nabuca was my favorite, but Boo was great, although so was Shu, and Sis, and so many others. Even Hamdo is his own twisted way.

Wow, I've never seen fanart of this before. It doesn't seem to be a very well-known show.

An awesome anime. It was very sad when Boo died

I cried when they died. Can't really look at anything right again after this show.

series brought me to tears
DotKuroNi Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Student
lol i just watched the whole series like today and it was very unsettling and at the same time very enjoyable.
Mariaye Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Honestly, thank you for drawing this. Now and Then, Here and There is one of my favorite anime of all time. Actually, it's one of my favorite works of all times; including that of books, Western cartoons, and movies. It's such a wonderful series; but yes, equally unsettling and cruel. Nabuca was my favorite character of all, and I loved his relationship with Boo. He was like a father to the kid, in a very outright way. Anywho; love this! <3
BarkingBone Featured By Owner May 9, 2012
so glad to see some nice work of Nabuca...such an obscure, strange anime. But lots of heart. A great plot. I wish it was more known.

TwilightFire Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Thank you for doing this! I just watched the entire series.... Man, it wasn't what I was expecting, not after the lightheartedness of the first episode (or most of it)... Love these characters!

This show rocks.
I saw this pic a long time ago, forgot to fave it, and now I found it again through something of yours that ended up on the front page.
Small world.

I went on YouTube so see the movie mostly because a saw this picture; a kid that looks (slightly) like Aang from Avatar:The Last Airbender holding an awesome looking gun! I've only seen the first part, but I'm enjoying the movie!
masayoshikun Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
I haven't seen that movie in ages, i think this is what got me into anime... :o

quinch Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011
Wait, movie? I have it as a series, or is what what you meant?

But yeah, need more NTHT art. Depressing as hell as it may be, it's definitely my favorite anime.

That movie was so cruel, but it's still so beautiful. I felt bad for every kid that was involved there :(

Still, I like this; great work with the coloring too :)
