The World Ends With You Contest SubmissionTakahashi Kanosuke
Kano and Nyami
Hair: Dark Brown
Style: Upbeat Emo
Although given the name Kanosuke, he doesn't particularly approve of such a full title. Therefore, the boy prefers to simply be called Kano. For the most part, he is a quiet and reserved person, yet completely outgoing all in his own - or when he wants to be. Wearing outstanding colors, trendy footwear, and almost never seen to others without his trademark headphones, he carries himself with a confident stride and remains conscientious to the assiduous world in the surrounding. Equipped with no weapons for show, he prefers the use of dark matter magic and spells to prevent his deletion, of course being rather skilled within this field.Nakamura Nyami
Hair: Light Brown
Eye: Jade green
Style: Comfortable Prep-Punk
Nyami is much like her counterpart as far as nature goes, although she tends to show her unrestrained self much more than Kano does. Whereas he knows the right moment to allow outbursts, Nyami allows her energy to flow whenever she sees fit; basically, she chooses not to care. Contrary to belief, she used to be extremely sensitive, but upon meeting the love of her life - it's obvious as to who that is by now - she's derived from him her own personality, one she never knew she had. She too carries herself confidently, though still a tad awkward and broken in consistency. Nevertheless, she is slowly becoming more of her own person and discovering herself along the way. Like Kano, she is aided with magic of both the offensive and healing nature, serving as both a weapon and a cleric.
All in all, this is one dynamic duo that cannot be separated. The boyfriend-girlfriend team works together to prevent deletion at any cost, ultimately covering each other's backs in the process. And although their clothing seems indifferent from what most commoners tend to wear, they feel expression through being is much more essential and effective; deriving personalities from first glances never ends up being set in stone anyway.
Finally, my submission for the 2008 The World Ends With You contest! I literally went through hell to get this up; I hope I'm not too late!Update: 4.25.98
- Now I can finally write to explain myself on this one. I had aforementioned that schoolwork had been getting the better of me lately - here, it's no different. Because of this, I could not see to it that my submission was entered by the original date, April 15, so thank goodness they extended it to the 22. But even then I nearly fell short! I was planning on using my boyfriend's scanner to produce a better image, seeing how I don't have one and will be without one until Christmas. So I went over his place last weekend and asked to use his scanner that we would have to set up. As it (unfortunately) turns out, I ended up asking him the day of my leave and we did not have enough time to set the scanner up. I figured this was no big deal and I would simply find a scanner somewhere else. Tuesday the 22nd rolls around and I still have not submitted my entry, so what did I have left to do? Sadly, I had to resort to using my brother's digital camera to snap a quick photo and submit it here, which is why it looks absolutely horrendous and not worthy of submission. But oh well. At least it's something, right?
