Mine Yoshizaki Fan Club
MajotaMajota7 years agoMisc
A club devoted to the works of illustrator, manga-ka, character designer and cat-loving, gunpla-building, motorcycle-riding extraordinaire Mine Yoshizaki. Born on December 2nd, 1971 in Nagasaki Japan, Yoshizaki began his career as a doujinshi-artist working on titles based off of fighting games in the late 80's and early 90's. His most notable doujinshi include the Mine series, Bit Fighter, and Street Fighter works. In 1989, Yoshizaki was honored with receiving first place in Shogakugan's Newcomer Comic Awards and continued to work on both doujin and official manga into the late 90's. His magnus opus, Keroro Gunsou (Sgt. Frog), was launched in Shonen Ace in November 1999 and became phenomenally popular soon thereafter, birthing an anime, merchandise, film, and video game powerhouse franchise that continues today.

Hello and thanks for the invitation to your club. I have added 3 colour variants of Reiko Holinger and 3 of Catherine Blitzen to db: figure/53315_re...; figure/53328_re...; figure/53407_re...; figure/53316_ca...; figure/53330_ca...; figure/53408_ca....
Not sure about the origins though; the boxes of the 2 already in db: figure/1552_rei...; figure/1553_cat... both show 0079 whereas the 6 that I added all show 0083. I could not find any offical shots (or information) so I photographed the pictures on the boxes for the db entries.

sillyker0nianWait...the 5th Keroro movie's title has been translated? Sweet~! ^_^
Actually, that's my translation. The full title is 超劇場版ケロロ軍曹 誕生!究極ケロロ 奇跡の時空島であります!! or "Keroro Gunsou The Super Movie: Birth! Ultimate Keroro! Miracle of Space-Time Island De Arimasu!!", so I decided to cut it down to just "Miracle of Space-time Island". The "official" translation will likely vary slightly.

Wait...the 5th Keroro movie's title has been translated? Sweet~! ^_^

Also, I loved that chapter in the manga that it's based on. At least, that is what I think it is.

And, Mine Yoshizaki is a good creator and artist. He deserves more love from the industry. I know he got an award for Keroro, but still ^^;
