This cel art is from Joker 3100, an ancient artbook released by Mamoru Nagano from the late 80s.

Basically, this is Nagano’s vision for what an Five Star Stories anime adaptation would have looked like at the time. More simple character designs, detailed backgrounds, and more oil stains on the Mortar Headds. Compare this to the actual movie by Sunrise and you can see how different his vision was, it was much less of a shoujo fantasy and more of a fairy tale war epic. It’s interesting to see how his vision has changed from back then to now, with Gothicmade (the movie) being his current vision for an FSS anime adaptation.

Nagano once intended to direct his own short half-hour Five Star Stories OVA a few years before this artbook was released.  It was supposed to be animated by Gainax, as a way of promoting the FSS resin kits for their Otaku merchandise store (General Products), sadly other than an ancient snippet from an old Tales of Joker magazine, this project never saw the light of day.  This all happened a few years before the official FSS movie by Sunrise went into production.

These images may have been remnants of the production art for that abandoned film.

Pink lakes filled with salt. The pink hue is due to red-colored algae, plankton and brine shrimp that glimmer pink with the bright Mexican sunlight.

I didn’t think I could have felt worse than I did fighting this boss. That was until I finished the dlc and Sif remembered me, then the entire thing was heartbreaking. #drawsouls #darksouls #gaming #gaming #boss #wolf #sword #sadness #preparetocryedition #drawing #draw #art #ink
