Tumblr user Gabbiegallery is drawing awesome freckled Makoto and i can’t get the image of freckled Tachibanana out of my mind! I love your Tachibanana au and especially the chubby Tachibanana! I love your work!

Having a freckled tachibanana would help with telling them apart though…


Waking Up Lovestruck.

They fall in love with each other every morning. It has become a comfortable routine. Sometimes Makoto has to touch Haru to make sure he’s real. And each morning, he realizes that Haru is better than he could ever dream.

I just love drawing these two so much. About 4.5 hours on SAI.

Continuing onward, please tell us a little about Makoto.

Utsumi: In one phrase, he’s a sweet boy. The impression hasn’t changed since I read the novel. He’s your everyday common high school boy. Strong, sweet, and a very helpful older brother. He was childhood friends with Haruka, so there’s not anything he hates about him. Conversely, he knows quite well the things he likes about Haruka. And because of that, he knows how to handle Haruka very well. Since Haruka isn’t the type to talk much, Makoto will follow up for Haruka and speak in his place. If Haruka wasn’t like that to begin with, Makoto wouldn’t become close to him. Since he is flawed, Makoto’s there by his side. I wonder if Haruka would also notice if Makoto’s big existence wasn’t always taking care of him.  Actually, one point of Makoto’s character is that he’s scared easily. He’s big, yet scary things get to him. It was a bit sad when we decided to make him scared easily yet have that body style. My impression is that as he grew bigger, he didn’t know how to use his size to his advantage. Really, a smaller body seems to fit that side of him.

Free! General Fanworks Event 2014


Hello Free! fans,

I’m in the middle of organizing a “gen” fanworks event, because I want to encourage people to create more gen fanworks a.k.a. stuff anyone can enjoy no matter what ship-preferences they have. Any type of submission is accepted (fanart, fanfic, poetry, fanmixes, etc).

But before I decide on the details (incl. rules) I’d like your input first.

Please fill out this poll by April 30.

Have any questions or comments? Please send an ask!

Free! Smoothies



Rin: Raspeberry Purée. Tangy with a pleasantly smooth texture that’s still just a bit rough around the edges. Healthy, fun, but risky in large doses
Makoto: Vanilla Yogurt. Sweet, light, and perfect for those who like their drinks healthy but with just that little tinge of delight.
Nagisa: Five Fruit Smoothie. A blast of five different tangy fruits blended into one purée, mixed with hard vodka. A nightmare in a cup, but you come back for more.
Rei: A Chocolate Protein shake. Fairly bitter, but you know it’s good for you, so you drink it, knowing that in the end, it will help. And in time, you’ll love it.
Haruka: Literally just a cup of ice. It’s not even crushed or cubes, it’s just a fucking block of ice, have fun eating that, asshole.

i wonder if haru ever does get frustrated by ice… it’s water… but he can’t feel it… =X

*experiments and gives haru a fucking block of ice*
