Hiroyuki Imaishi’s NEXTWAVE?

Someone pointed me at this on twitter, with the message

From /co/ @WarrenEllis + Stuart Immonen’s Nextwave, by Hiroyuki Imaishi

I don’t read /co/, so I have no idea of the provenance of the attached image.

    Yeah, I totally understand.

    /b/ pretty much leaves no time for other boards.

    It’s just as I/they/we say:

    /co/ is love.

    /co/ as a whole doesn’t seem to know where exactly they got the image from. Somebody posted it and then shut their mouths, as far as I can tell. Either way, it be some cool fanart.

    think Imaishi and Gainax studios are fans of you

    The person who posted the image didn’t say where he got it from only that it was drawn by Hiroyuki Imaishi who is best known for being the director of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. This image is probably from one of his doujinshi magazines (which are self-published Japanese magazines/comics) and probably put one of his sketches.

    But personally I think it’s awesome, I knew that Nextwave had some Japanese fans but I never imagined that Hiroyuki was one of them.

    If I had to guess, and I don’t but I will, it’s from the Gainax Studios doujinshi thing Rakugaki Giga-Drill (Graffiti Giga-Drill), where Gainax folks, including Imaishi I suppose, draw stuff.


  8. Any Nextwave is better than no Nextwave.

    Now I’m picturing a Nextwave anime done like Dead Leaves.
    I’m also creaming myself at the thought of just how awesome that would be.
