Kazue's art (Official sketches & illustrations)

Holy sh*t! The new cover/sketch/whatever is beautiful!! What's that huge demon in the background? A demon king in his true form? I assume it is Azazel (king of ghosts).

Whatever it is, it's not something from this world. Which is weird, because I can't see Rin traveling to Gehenna just yet... unless Mephisto is taking him...

But I think it's just an illustration.

^ It IS around Halloween. Maybe it has something to do with that?

^ It is gorgeous, and I really hope it's a taste of what's to come. But unfortunately it's not the next issue's cover - just a promo poster which will be included in next month's comic. That said, they're all wearing pretty formal looking clothes so it might be connected to the upcoming festival. Either way, I can't wait to see this image completed!

^ Is that the fight against Satan?

Bon... a rocketlauncher? Really? He's never doing half work, is he. ::)

And it looks like Shima became a Knight after all.

. . . .

Part of me just died and got reborn.

There is so much badass in that pic, I'm melting! Although I don't think the monster is Satan - there'd be more blue if it was. Amaimon perhaps? It's got the lizardy tail. Then again it also looks like the anime's take on Astaroth, although whether or not that was canon I'm not sure.
Bon, you are such an epic dragoon! Wanna see more!

I really really REALLY hope this is a taste of an upcomming arc. My life would be made . . .

What is Koneko holding?

Some kind of gun on his arm?

Just noticing that Yukio isnt wearing his normal Trenchcoat (aka the Dress). Interesting, but I like it.

Am I the only one thinking that the anatomy looks a bit off this time? I mean, I know I'm a nerd when it comes to that, but still... the legs look so awkward, and so do the shoulders.
And I'm saying that despite seriously loving Kazue's anatomy (and general drawings, duh). But at least the colours and the background are pretty~
As if to spite this hateful world, I decided to love it.

I guess we're getting more art because Kazue deciding to take a break (which I'm fine with, since everyone needs a vacation).

Reminds me of early designs for Shiemi and Rin.

Henceforth, this year shall be known as "the year when Kazue tortured Yukio to insanity".

Found a higher resolution version...



Izumo is holding her summoning circles but I don't see her Byakkos anywhere... so maybe a new familiar?

^ Couldn't it just be because she hasn't summoned them there yet?

Yes... it could, but wouldn't it be cool to have a familiar like that? Imagine the kind of enemy you would call him to fight against...

Many thanks for the link, HeavenlyAnchor!

I'm loving Rin's scabbard setup - attached to his belt looks way more badass than slung over his back. I always thought that was a bit of a plothole - how he always manages to find the scabbard so quickly to sheath the sword even after massive battles.
Bon is just too badass for words, and I love that demon in the background. Wonder if it's Amaimon's true form . . .

I think that the demon might be Behemoth...
