I have a huge gaping wound in my moe-centre (think chakra centre), having barely survived an assassination attempt from my very own brother-in-anime, Zyl. Few folks on earth know my terrifying secret – I can only be killed by bishoujos. So when Zyl handed me a pack of K-book’s Trump collection featuring the moelicious art of numerous artists, he knew it’d be akin to stabbing my moe acupoints, 52 times. Miraculously, I survived and swore to repay him in kind. But first, an entry on the beautiful assassins.
Unlike the sets of bootlegged anime playing cards sold in a local comic chain-store, this very quality trump collection comes free. (Although I believed my good bro Zyl must sold his kidney at K-books for this fabulous freebie.) There are different themes for each of the 4 suits and below are 2 of them – Gothic & Lolita & Maid for Hearts and Et ceteras for Spades
Ahhh, you can be sure sweet/gothloli would be THE mandatory national costume when I set up the Striped Republic of tanuki in the not-so-near-future. These cards are also highly informative in highlighting artists (bottom left). Time to find the artbooks belonging to the more noteworthy illustrators.
Plenty more moe in the clubs and diamonds suits (featuring Uniform and Swimming suit & Lingerie themes respectively) Will try to put them up when I recover from my moe-injuries. Meanwhile I need to hunt for card protectors for these lovelies to preserve their status as family heirlooms.
