Mamura Daiki is coming to life!
So do you guys remember the tweet Yamamori sensei tweeted a long time ago regarding Mamura Daiki’s secret model that she wasn’t going to reveal? If not here it is…
June 29, 2012
I drew a little bit more but the courier came! A pose that wouldn’t be done in the original story. This guy has a model as well, but that’s a secret (#^_^#)
Today, she basically confirmed that the model used as a reference for drawing Mamura will be appearing the next issue of Margaret. She didn’t specifically say who on her twitter though…
Today is the release day in Margaret. This is a quick notice but the secret model that I use to draw Mamura is appearing in the next issue (*^o^*) On top of that, I also recieved some Mamura-like cothing…! Thanks…! Actually, from a long time ago, a number of readers have asked me many times the question “Is this person the model?” … Yes that’s correct.
Fans had a guessing game about who this said model is as shown below. (Contain spoilers for chapter 63 - anything after fan reactions are spoiler free!)
How about a kiss, Saumensch?
He stood waist-deep in the water for a few moments longer before climbing out and handing her the book. His pants clung to him, and he did not stop walking. In truth, I think he was afraid. Rudy Steiner was scared of the book thief’s kiss. He must have longed for it so much. He must have loved her so incredibly hard. So hard that he would never ask for her lips again and would go to his grave without them.
this is THE best post on tumblr forever.
i couldnt breathe for a while there and all the blood drained from my face
"I think that the most hideous, blood-curdling murderers are those who failed to become great human beings… Those who commit unthinkable murders and those who achieve great things both hold enormous fantasies, dreams and ambitions in their hearts. Because both of them hold such gigantic things inside themselves, they are never satisfied, and they will never give up until they see their dreams realized… Having dreams is an ability granted at birth, but whether or not one is capable of bringing those aspirations to bloom depends on one’s environment. It depends on whether someone tells you that you have the right to live or not.”
