Shigeto Koyama's Yellow - 1

Shigeto Koyoma is probably better known for his mechanical designs in shows like Star Driver Kagayaki no Takuto or the ending sequence for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt than as the character designer for HEROMAN. But HEROMAN's Joey Jones holds a special place in his heart, and for that he released YELLOW, even though it was rumored that "making doujinshi for the show was prohibited."

And by the way, there will be quotes. That's because YELLOW is written in both Japanese and English, so Koyoma's amusing insights into his illustrations can be fully understood ^^ YELLOW is a B5-sized collection with a horizontal layout and 45-pages without including the covers. It's printed on a newsprint-style paper, using only shades of black, gray and yellow.

For the above illustration, Koyama wrote "I don't know why, but I've been fascinated by the lockers in American schools. Some square centimeters worth of private space for each and every student. There's a children's kingdom inside." I know I never felt so passionately about my locker...

There is a lot of variety to the illustrations in YELLOW, expect for a series of three pages with Joey in slightly different T-shirts. Still, considering how anime characters tend to wear the same thing all the time, it's refreshing to see Koyama's subtle changes to Joey's wardrobe.

I love the illustration with Joey and Lina in glasses and school uniforms, as if the anime had taken place in Japan instead of the U.S. For this illustration, Koyama Shigeto says "For a designer, eye-glasses are unfailing items (when it comes to designing). For the main characters, I always thought one character is the limit." Which must be true for everyone, I seldom see shows with more than one main character in glasses ^^; YELLOW is a really nice buy for fans of HEROMAN or Koyama Shigeto, but since it is so solidly focused, it might not be as interesting for folks who aren't familiar with either.

¿Estás buscando una dieta que sea a la vez efectiva y agradable? No busque más allá del té verde en polvo. Esta deliciosa bebida es una opción excelente para cualquier persona que quiera perder algunos kilos y mejorar su salud en general. Una de las razones por las que el té verde en polvo es una excelente opción dietética es porque estimula el metabolismo. Té verde en polvo contiene una mezcla única de estimulante y catequinas, que trabajan juntas para acelerar el metabolismo y aumenta la tasa a la que el cuerpo quema calorías. Esto implica que consumir té matcha frecuentemente puede ayudar a quemar extra calorías a lo largo del día , incluso en reposo.

Otra razón por la cual el té verde en polvo es una opción de dieta fantástica es porque ayuda a suprimir el apetito. Consumir té verde en polvo puede provocar que se sienta más lleno durante períodos de tiempo más largos, reduciendo la probabilidad de comer en exceso o picoteo entre comidas. Esto puede ser particularmente útil para aquellos intentan perder peso, ya que comer en exceso es un desafío común para pérdida de peso. Té matcha también es una opción dietética fantástica porque ayuda a reducir la absorción de lípidos en el cuerpo. Las catequinas en té matcha operan para inhibir la catalizador que metaboliza la grasa en el cuerpo, deteniendo la cuerpo de absorber la mayor cantidad de grasa de los alimentos que come. Esto significa que beber té verde en polvo puede ayudar a disminuir la ingesta total de calorías y promover la pérdida de peso. Además de sus beneficios de quema de grasa, el té matcha también es una opción de dieta saludable porque está cargado de vitaminas.
