Sadamoto has been one of my favourite anime artists for well over a decade. This is adorable.

Something about the color choice, combined with the pose/composition, seems to clash. And her boots seem to be drawn a little awkward for my taste, but...

I like her outfit. =P

To add to that, I think her crescent moon-shaped, open-mouth smile is a bit too sharply up-turned on her right side. Looks odd. I feel the design could've been a bit better than what's shown here.

Smile almost looks like he was going to draw her teeth in and forgot.

I'm sure it'll look better in 3D when Good Smile Company or Sega makes the inevitable figure.

What an honor to have such an acclaimed character designer do the cover art for an musician's album. Now I'd like to see one of the other old time character designer greats like Yuzo Takada or Kenichi Sonoda do their rendition of Miku.

Minus the ponytails, you'd think you were looking at an emoteful Rei wouldn't you?
