The Diary of Ochibi-san was the first Moyoco Anno manga that I had ever read. Ochibi-san has a strong, courageous soul (most times haha). He stands up for what's important to him and doesn't care what others think of his outrageous, imaginative ideas. Friendship is a big priority in his life. He's not afraid to go an extra mile just to help out a friend. Ochibi-san also gets lazy, stubborn, and a bit of a little cheeky monkey at times but those are some of my favorite characteristics about him because it makes me relate to him that much more! Honestly, during moments of the day I try to look at the world through Ochibi-san's perspective. My mood almost instantaneously becomes uplifted because suddenly I can imagine a whole little world on a leaf, or I wait for the perfect day in autumn when the leaves are the right crispysness for jumping in!

Thank you Moyoco Anno for sharing so many amazing characters and stories with the world! Your hard work is very much appreciated!!

I LOVE Moyoco Anno's art and manga.
When I saw this contest posted, I knew I also had to join and convey my appreciation of her works.
I Especially Love Sakuran!


But for a favorite character I have to go with Ochibi-san!
He's just so fun and quirky. It's refreshing to read his little adventures.
Ochibi-san reminds me of my best friend from High School's little bro.. he was certainly a interesting guy and he would burst into the living room dancing all of sudden or just cause a ruckus... the manga has a very nostalgic feel to it so it just brings me back to that time were things were simple but fun... being an adult can sometimes be hard and stressful...lol.. ah getting old...


Anyway I hope you enjoy my entry. I am not the best illustrator but maybe I can get points for creativity! lol ^_^
I initially just did a drawing but thought it would be more fun to do a cut out of the illustration and set it up with some props and do a scene.
I thought that doing this would be something in the same vein as the manga. Just something fun and silly.
Of course at this point I had to include Nazeni and Pankui with his bread!
I had a lot of fun doing this and setting everything up. Very much reminiscent of some of the projects I did when I was younger...it really brought me back..





This is the illustration with the props as I was setting it up, without cutting out fully.



Here's the original illustration.

Thank you for looking!
Thank you for running the contest. I really very much enjoyed it.
Good luck everyone!

I just saw this contest yesterday but couldn't help trying to enter last minute...

I adore Moyoko Anno's art style so much and Sugar Sugar Rune is one of the top favorite manga that I own. I know it's a popular choice but Chocolat is my favorite character. Besides being adorable with an awesome style she's just so energetic and fun and it's hard hard not to like even the aggressive and brash side of her. She goes after what she wants but also cherishes friendship the most. She's her own character and I love seeing how she grows and matures throughout the series. Pierre would be my second favorite ^.~

Skimped out a bit on the coloring because hhhhh needs to get in before deadline!!! orz

Sugar Sugar Rune was the first series of Moyoko Anno's I encountered! I first watched it way back in during my early years of middle school, and even now I absolutely love it! I just started reading the manga recently and wowow I'm absolutely in love with the art style, plot, everything <3 Seriously a story revolving around friendly competition with some pretty intense plot twists is just my kind of thing~ Cute witches, a stunning magical world, and the ability to see and capture hearts; I'd love to be a star in that!

CHOCOLAT MY QUEEN. Chocolat is my favorite because of how she develops as a character. While at first she may have seem rash and hot-headed, she was able to grow as a better person. She values her friendship over the competition and I think that's absolutely wonderful. She's not perfect, and her reactions and mindset are realistic, but that's her charm! She has her set of flaws, but is able to overcome them with resilience and motivation. She's like a lamp that can light up the entire room and leave everyone stunningly enchanted. She's beautiful inside and out. She's not afraid to speak her mind and her liveliness is endearing. She's able to pick herself up even during hard times and is willing to help those in need (even if she's not aware of it at times). I'd love to be more like Chocolat if not have a friend like her in my life c: Oh and her design is so ridiculously cute like hhhh that long straight and silky orange hair and those piercing emerald eyes and really adorable smile and laugh <3 I especially like this outfit of her that I drew her in for this entry~



Good luck to everyone else to entered!

and thank you Moyoco Anno for being your amazing self, keep up the good work~

Hi guys~

At the (last minute) urging of some friends, I decided to enter a quick brush drawing of Ivy from MoAG. :D



While I love Anno's more light-hearted fare like Sugar Sugar Rune, Ochibisan, and Insufficient Direction, I really admire how she portrays women of all walks of life. I enjoy the cool, no-nonsense straight-forwardness of Ivy in contrast to a soft-hearted Colette.

I've also been working on a series of modern kitsuke drawings very much inspired by her daily sketches.



Thanks for hosting such a neat contest! ♥

wow cutting it really close to the wire, completely was misinformed about the deadline! XD my own fault, skipped on some...detail because of that. But I chose to do Colette from Memoirs of an Amorous Gentlemen


She's an incredible character, I love her outlook on life and its invigorating reading about her troubles and her life illustrated and told by Anno ^^ Actually, I really enjoy Anno's style of storytelling, especially its realism and fleshed out feelings and personalities of the characters. Colette in particular caught my attention because of her occupation and her love interest despite her walk of life. The end of chapter one's quote about her role in life really spoke to me. Good luck to all that entered the contest! Some really great talent and entries
