The current year is close to its end... finally... I particularly won't miss it. LOL Anyway, it is a tradition in Japan to see a plethora of anime calendars being released between october and january. Kantoku's Calendar 2016 is just one of these artworks, and frankly it is a very pretty one.

Calendar 2016 does have 12 pages plus cover. It features uniquely original characters, just like Kurumi and Shizuku. The cover, bright and colorful, shows the two refered characters in a summerlike fashion:

The pictures featuring months from January to March consider some of the typical events taking place in Japan (and roughly in many countries of north hemisphere): Valentine's day and winter:

I found the image showing Miyaguchi Kanna (February) totally cute! wub.gif

The next three pictures a particularly superb:

The picture featuring Nagisa (June) is charming and very beautiful. It is my favorite image in this artwork! Shizuku (April) looks cute as well.

The main drawback (at least to me) in this artwork is just the fact that it counts with two duplicates of images recently published in a previous doujin: July and October. Both pictures are present in COLORS. Oh, well...

Calendar 2016 ends with two charming and sexy images. November seems to show (very slightly) nipples... I will leave to onii-chan to decide if it should stay here or not. smile.gif

------------------------------------

The overall artwok is really cute and pretty, and I'm sure that Kantoku fans won't be displeased with it. Its main weakness is just the appearance of duplicates from previous doujins, but it is not a really serious issue.

Wow, very cute characters and super detailed artwork! a09.gif Thanks for sharing, onii-chan!

I guess since nipples in question are technically covered and it isn't very ecchi over all, this one case stays. lol

I'm really glad to know you enjoyed it, onii-chan! The artwork itself is very charming and cute. My favorite girl is Nagisa (June); shee looks so innocent and pure...

I agree with you about that picture featuring nipples... they're not exposed at all. The calendar isn't even a ecchi one, as you correctly pointed out. That's why I particularly considered that it could be posted here. I'm glad you think the same. biggrin.gif

Well, the February, March, May and August and December pictures are also part of COLORS, respectively as BROWN, PINK, GREEN, YELLOW and RED. With July and October, that makes 7 out of 13 pics coming from COLORS.

But then, since these calendars are usually made from the best work the artist made during the previous year, I suppose it's normal a lot came from COLORS, as it was a brilliant collection of exquisite pictures.

BTW, love the girls in November... Very sexy!

And May (GREEN in COLORS) is still one of my favorite among all the above. August (YELLOW), with its sunflowers, is still a must as well.


Thanks for sharing, Kira! Much appreciated. smile.gif

I still think Santa had yet another heart attack meeting those three girls in December, too. wink.gif
