Yu Yu Hakusho: Kurama Kitsune

Weeks of rest and recovery later, I'm finally able to sit down and draw something again~ (´∇`) I can't draw as much as I did during the contest, but at least I got to sketch Kurama for a bit.

A new OVA is coming out, and I am excited to see Maya Kitajima in the film~ She only ever appeared in the manga and in the special Yu Yu Hakusho cinematic books, but there was a lot of controversy surrounding her character. (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑)

You see (SPOILER ALERT), Maya is Shuichi's classmate in junior high school. She had the ability to see yokai, and thought that Shuichi was the same, not knowing that Shuichi was actually part yokai himself. When Maya was kidnapped by a yokai that Hiei was following, Shuichi and Hiei run off to rescue her. They killed the yokai and Shuichi then decided to erase Maya's memories, including her love for him, in order to keep her safe.

And where is the controversy, you might ask? (・о・)

Fans have speculated that Shuichi did not really erase Maya's memories in order to protect her. Many think that he did so because Shuichi is into Hiei..! ((((;゚Д゚)))) But Shuichi had only just met Hiei that night, so I don't know if that's true..?

Anyway, I am rambling, but I hope you enjoyed this drawing~ ( ˘・з・) See you next time!
