Onion Head Emoticons 118...!

PS. Actually, I've written this before, it has buried in DCW threads and post. I thought I would like to share to the world by putting it on my blog :D


  1. ... Took some time reading. Good job... Really neat work... I see that the resembles each other... But i need Kazuha, Hakuba, Heiji and some random person...

  2. @Hano Thanks for reading, lol! xD
    What did you mean by 'But i need Kazuha, Hakuba, Heiji and some random person...'? :D

  3. i think what he/she was trying to said is he/she wanted the resemblance details about the person as he/she mentioned above...

  4. When you pair them up this way, it looks like the mangaka didn't put a lot of thought into character design, and got lazy. This then translated into the anime. A good manga should show creativity in character design.
