Blu-ray volume five of Ano Natsu de Matteru joins the revolution of nopan yuri as its cover comes sporting two females in a rather intimate state – with the cute blue-haired character looking to lack pantsu.
There’s quite a few things one could say regarding this art piece – the choice of medium is certainly interesting, as was its utilization. Gentle hues are met with precise line, and defined shadow, with every detail looking quite concise despite the softness of the image – all of which certainly works favorably in achieving a rather heavy hitting effect even with the lack of extreme, or even average, saturation. The overall essence of the artwork is one quite reminiscent to watercolor – and there’s a reason such is praiseworthy when also considering subject matter.
Quite a few finer areas exist within this illustration – although focusing around the vicinity of skirt of the adorable blue-haired entity, the subtlety is spectacular. Emphasis is not explicit – yet even with such being the case, the artist arranged the elements of the image in order to provide the revealing sight seen, a notable amount of upskirt.
The presentation of this art piece is laudable in that, first of all, the amount of lower body skin being displayed is into the realms of being considered “inappropriate” – most seifukus come with short skirts, although in this case, the skirt is serving as little more than a frivolous cloth to ensure that her posterior isn’t touching whatever ground lies underneath. And secondly, the reason such is worthy of being recognized for reasons beyond touching oneself is that it’s rather formidable how so much skin was showcased in a fashion of simplistic innocence.
And on another note, one must also be impressed, among other things, with how well the legs of our attractive blue-haired character were shaped – rather than the oft-seen artificial stylings of flawless cylinders inclining inwards towards the knee, one can notice the proper and all so lovely curvature of second dimensional female flesh.
While her chest fails to offer much anything for the eyes, this illustration certainly is excellent in accenting the hidden strengths of this cute character.
