This is a bit of an old news, but I only has time to ramble about this here now lol. I think MAYA first dropped the hint about her new artbook project was back in April 2012. Omg that was more than a year ago! This time the theme is based on a new original character of her called Mikazuki and the artbook itself is named MIIKA. Her previous one in 2008 was featuring Flamingo and named Puzzle. Only this time MAYA actually create an accompanying 45 pages manga inside about Mikazuki. Currently from first glance I still prefer Flamingo-chan than Mikazuki, maybe because I seems to have less attachment to oriental based design? That being said the manga could easily change my mind later just like how I came to love Orologio and Eculemess so much after reading the manga in Puzzle artbook lol.
There will be Zekt artwork post 2008 and I guess she will also include her Tarot ENIE works too? Another question comes back, will there be a coloured image of ristaccia pv outfit for Nox and Matin? At this point I have a mixed feeling about this haha, most likely due to I would be sad if my outfit then rendered as totally unuseable for being inaccurate if the colour is then way off? XD I guess the most ideal situation I hope to happen is the colouring is revealed on the artbook and it matched with mine or very close to mine XDDD;
I did try to ask for hint in twitter to MAYA and luckily(?) Matin has her prototype design in the artbook coloured and her prototype to final design is actually pretty much the same, unlike Nox's. I know MAYA said that it uses more navy blue, and I was about to get one but at that time unable to get navy blue fabric that is not too close to black and instead took liberty to use the blue that is close to royal blue instead. It is still a liberty I love to take because well, it is my fave blue honestly lol. I guess we will just wait and see until July 2014 OMG SUCH A LONG WAIT ARGHHHHH
I already straight preordered the deluxe version and just the book as well. Knowing how worned out my puzzle artbook was I know the same thing will happen to MIIKA especially considering there will be lots of Zektbach stuff I will droll on lololol. She tends to put lots of her still when she made PV, so can you imagine the amount of possible stills, early sketches for Turii, Raison D'etre and Kagachi?
Oh and I will die if there is sketch involving Falo and Matin together XDD
The funny thing was I spoke to, actually fangirl about this artbook with Elias and already predict we will probably going "holy asghdhdjk CAN I COSPLAY THIS AND THIS AND THIS AND THIS AND THISSSSSS" and he will go "CAN I SHOOT THEM ALLL?" um yeah.. I can see it will happen lol.
