A Very Twelve Kingdoms Valentines by YoukaiYume A Very Twelve Kingdoms Valentines by YoukaiYume
WARNING! MASSIVELY LARGE FILE IS MASSIVELY LARGE! PLEASE FULL VIEW!

Happy Belated Valentine's Day...

Youko/Keiki goodness!

Though I'm not adverse to Shoryu/Youko (obviously here) and Rakushun/Youko. But Keiki is just so darn awkwardly adorable. It always crossed my mind that if Keiki ever did fall in love with Youko, that he'd put himself in this eternal limbo of duty and want.

And for those who don't know, White Day is celebrated in Japan on March 14th. One month after Valentine's Day. People would give "thank you" gifts to their admirers who gave them stuff for Valentine's.

Usually girls gift boys Chocolates in February, and Boys would respond in March.

So this was... unexpected for me. I'm pretty sure Twelve Kingdoms is a rather obscure anime itself and most people won't get what's going on. You're missing out, btw, it's a fantastic anime. But I did it on a whim and I always remind myself that I do artwork for me, and not for others.

SO this is a result of me wanting to do more 12K Art, not having time or inspiration, and all of a sudden KABLOOWIE! It was meant to be short, but somehow I just kept tacking on panels and panels and now it's about the equivalent length of about 7-10 pages of doujinshi. Done at work in the expanse of a week during free time. Uh. Enjoy.

This series is sort of old, but WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T! Or read the novels :)

p.s. The anime can be pretty hard to sit through the first couple of episodes, mainly because everyone is so darn unlikeable. But it's meant to be about character growth and OMG the best character development ever. I love it.

This is ... everything that I feel about Keiki's very conflicted feelings for Youko! :icondragoncollapse:
It makes me remember a scene where Keiki told Youko that there are kings/queens that name their kirins out of love for them. Youko's response was something like "Keiki is Keiki" ... and my heart went "awwwwwww" for poor Keiki! ^_^
Thank you so much :blowkiss: for making this! A 12K doujinshi, wow and double wow!

Yes~!  This is a series called Twelve Kingdoms, or Juuni Kokki.  The original format was as light novels, but it was made into an anime several years ago.  It's the same writer as Ghost Hunt~!  :la:

Nope.  ;w;  I kinda wish it had some, but it's actually a seinen (young men's) series by category.  Very action/adventure, plus lots of political intrigue~  The character development is the best thing of all!  They're hard to deal with at the beginning of the series, but that illustrates just how amazing their growth is once you get a little ways in, and it recurs with other characters that are introduced later as well.
