Yupon also did the art for the end card of episode 5.



Also GAH THOSE CHIBI EYES ARE STILL CREEPIN' ME OUT, MAN.

And another thing.... spoiler[Why did the header image have to be one of that Madoka, yo? Sure hope the new viewers won't read much into it. Razz]

If anyone who hasn't seen the entire show decides to click on the article, then they have no right to complain about spoilers. I'm getting exasperated with people blindly reading articles they have no business reading and walking into threads where they have no business being (there).

That's not to say that we should throw out untagged spoilers in this thread or that the article shouldn't be circumspect with how it presents information. But I see nothing wrong with this article and how it has reported this news. It's about how the characters of PMMM look. Ergo, the article needs to report on that and shouldn't have to go out of its way and conceal pertinent information just to spare fools the consequences of clicking on the link.

@dtm42:

Woah, chill, I'm kinda saying this in jest. I'm just thinking it's a bit funny, in its own way, that out of all the header photos that the news team/lone reporter decided to use-- ANN could've used any of the more standard character designs as front page material, really-- but instead they went with what I referred to. I was also thinking about the letter that I wrote to ANN recently asking how its staff members avoid such-and-such spoilers about such-and-such shows-- the same exact letter that appeared in the Answerman column a couple weeks ago, the one about spoilers-- and how it was the existence of this kind of maybe-spoiler image/article that helped in prompting me to write said letter.

spoiler[Huh, so God has swirly eyes.] I can actually see that being true.

Kyubey having swirly eyes only ups the cute factor Smile

The eyes look better than the ones on the Yu-Gi-Oh one-coins, guess Yūpon realized they need to make them go in one direction so they don't look so derpy Laughing

Funny thing is they actually spoilered the other Madoka figure in the Wonfes article

spoiler[I think they are vague enough for people to think that they are alternate or joke costumes, not to mention it's hard to truly tell what's going one with the SD look to them. Now if it was a picture or screenshot from the actual show to go along with them, then that may be another matter entirely…]

I really like Yuupon's design's (and he/she can draw "regular" pretty well, too). Of course, they're going for a pretty penny, but the craftsmanship behind them seems to make it worthwhile…
