As with any volume of the series, the pair of imagery which make Haganai’s first add-on disk have been revealed – with one illustration being of the genetically superior light novel caliber, the other, the petty animation.
Forgetting about the lesser of the two, the illustration above is quite as marvelous as one would anticipate. Of the more prominent features, shadow delicately, yet definitively, transitions as it moves throughout the physique of the females – caressing their form. This expertise in value application makes the articles of attire appear embedded with appropriate texture, cloth replicated precisely – and as these items of clothing consist of more intense and contrasting colors, they certainly come forward against the softly portrayed skin.
Visible with either Yozora, or the meatbag, the gentle shifting of light on the skin outputs a gorgeous, and certainly substantial depth – allowing one to truly grasp the sense of a supple Yozora, or meatbag, being laid out before them. The shadow of the clothing also contributes to depth – yet note how the clothes have a stronger, and more heavily defined instance of lighting overlay, establishing the general female physique like a chiseled statue.
It’s worth noting the shape and curvature of the breasts on both Yozora and meatbag alike – one can see how the flow is carefully considered, and moves very intricately, rather than a perfect semi-circle or the sort as seen with the lowly anime based illustration below. The more precise motion of the line incites a highly realistic look – whilst also adding to the depth, color, shadow, and tone, to make for the tender sight which one sees.
The artwork is an elaborate symphony of the elements – and certainly, one rather wonderful as well.
