Fire Emblem: Awakening - Concept Art
Remember that one show on Jetix called Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!? (shortening it to RMT) It was a bout a young lad named Chiro who fights the evil Skeleton King with his Robot Monkey Team in their giant robot.
It’s better than it sounds.
When I first watched it, I immediately…
Yay, time to go down memory lane!
and reminded myself how much I want the Archania graphic novel
Anyway, I always found it odd that Chiro’s general look seems to be based off of how 009 looked in the 60’s films (especially evident when you consider that is one of the few designs of Joe where his hair doesn’t cover one of his eyes, which is the same for Chiro’s hair). Just, given how old that film is, the reference seems kind of random. I remember hearing that Ciro was raised in Italy or something, and the 70’s cartoon was, supposedly, big over there, so I would at least expect references to that, but the 60’s film?
Though it is interesting to note that Cyborg 009 aired on Cartoon Network around mid-2003 till late 2004, during that time was when Ciro was also working at Cartoon Network for season two of Teen Titans. I wonder if the 2001 version inspired him to include the idea of the Hyperforce being in cryogenic sleep before Chiro woke them up? After all, you could consider the monkeys to be the ‘first generation’ of the Hyperforce…
And it may be a coincident, but it is amazing how much Sprx mirrors 002. There already some base similarities between them -both are cocky fliers of the team and Jet is often, pre-2012 at least, depicted with reddish hair-, but as his wiki page points out, Jet originally more laid-back, easy-going, and fit more into the ‘big brother mentor’ role, which is exactly how Sprx was in the beginning of show. Then, just as Jet becomes more jaded in the manga, so too does Sprx become more worn out from fighting Skeleton King, and both later have another character take over the mentor role.
On that note, Antauri = 004 y/n? Antauri didn’t start out as the fatherly mentor to Chiro, just like how Albert wasn’t originally the mentor figure to the team until latter adaptations. There’s also the fact that one could interpret him as having silver hair and blue eyes, just like a certain silver monkey…and Antauri and Albert do end up being the most mechanical of the entire team…
Yeah, I doubt it is nothing more of a coincident that Sprx and Antauri’s development mirrors 002 and 004’s so much, but you have to admit it is one heck of a coincident :P
What if April & Karai were best friends and kicked ass together?
This is a little late, I’m sorry- work is draining and looney sometimes.
Two weekends ago, my TMNT buddy and I finally came together and made one of our favourite fandoms come true.
It was insanely fun, I love my April so much x
I am seriously so glad we dedicated the first 45mins to picture taking, (basically all these nonsense) because the weather was like hell fire.
Singapore, unfortunately is not cosplay-friendly especially during the middle of the year lol.
Also, We’ve been a huge & silent fan of some tmnt artists/related blogs here on tumblr and my partner-in-crime holophernes and I wish to dedicate all these pictures to you.

Sage-Only Apotheosis Run
From what anime is this?!!
DRAMAtical Murder, commonly abbreviated to DMMD. It was originally a yaoi visual novel that I don’t think was ever officially released in English, but I’m sure you can find an English translation patch somewhere online. The anime version is currently being streammed on CrunchyRoll, which I linked to.
Hope this helps :)
Armenian Women’s Armor. Because she’s ARMENIAN.
Not only does this one piece give more protection than the entire ensembles worn by many “strong” heroines - it also great with the dress and accessories.
There’s a lesson there for so many who design armor for female characters. So, so many.
