They're chibi. They don't have ankles. XD

Ankles are for the anatomically correct.

Sometimes Chibi characters don't even have fingers...

Guys, don't make Shiei sad... T_T


But seriously, these chibis became the basic designs for the dancing chibi part in the flash anime. So they should seem a tad familiar (aside from the clothes).

I'm not trying to make anyone sad :sweat:... It was part of the comment "Chibi and anatomically correct is not the same" :sweat:....

Yeah, I remember the Chibi versions from the Flash :D...

I like them, makes me think almost of a glimpse into their childhood, almost like "the pre-teen years" :sweat:

I have no idea why this idea struck me, but anyone remember in the 1980's when they had a string of "adults as kids" cartoons? Flinstone Kids and a Pup Named Scooby-Doo as two examples?

For some reason seeing these two chibi images (two of eight) I almost see a spin-off AOI House like that, them as kids all at the same grade or middle school.

Indeed.. and well, I was born at 1988... but I used to watch the Flistone Kids and a Pup Named Scooby-Doo when I was in elementary school xD...

Do the chibi-characters then trigger the same thought in your head too?

Not sure why but the more often I see them the more I see a "AOI House Kids" chibi character type of "spin-off" story. :sweat:

Awesome work on them again Shiei!

Well... I don't think there would be an Aoi House Kids version... It just... doesn't sound right :D... I mean... to little boys end up joining a house full of oversexed Yaoi little fangirls?

When you put it that way it does sound um well okay so there would be minor problems with that idea :sweat:
