art: ashes to ashes August 31, 2008

Posted by chiisai_hana in : doujinshi , trackback

After the latest Code Geass episode, this was the only fitting thing to post. One of my recent finds in doujinshi circles is ashes to ashes. I bought a random doujinshi by the circle, and it was well worth the $25 (even though I’ve now found the doujinshi hosted for free on their site). The doujinshi is called Knight x Prince, and it’s an alternate reality story where Lelouch goes to Japan and meets Suzaku, but grows up a prince. His knight, obviously clear from the title, is Suzaku. While I can’t make heads or tails of the plot at this point in time, the art is gorgeous. I’ve since bought another ashes to ashes book and it didn’t meet the quality of Knight x Prince in my opinion. Then again, where Knight x Prince is rather pleasant the doujinshi Not Equal is a lot more angst driven, taking place during Suzaku’s capture of Lelouch pre-R2.

The story of Knight x Prince seems to be drama focused, and probably only appeals to the fangirls out there. You can find a PG version of the doujinshi uploaded here. If you happen to find a copy of the book, let’s just say things get a lot steamier after that kiss. The story itself is still being continued, and you can find snippets of future events around ashes to ashes’ site.

Non-suzalulu fans might be interested in the circle’s gallery. They have some great pictures of the other characters posted.
