Munto: Into the Light by Hanesihiko Munto: Into the Light by Hanesihiko

BECAUSE MUNTO NEEDS MORE LOVE! LIKE, MOAARRRR!!

Munto/ Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai fanart! My passion for this pairing and the series/OVA themselves... words fail to describe! I've always had a soft spot for Munto ever since I first saw the OVAs. They had so much potential, a shame that the story wasn't longer. So now that it's been made into a series, I am hoping for more MuntoxYumemi moments~

Say hello to my trademark blank background again (well, at least it's 'shiny' this time). XD Loosely based off that SQUEEable final frame of the ED sequence. :heart: The outfits were adjusted and slightly more elaborate because I phail at simplicity. XD Did this while listening to the ripped OP/ED on loop like the rabid fan that I am. I'm not sure if the colour quality is alright, I can never tell with my laptop screen. It fools you into thinking everything is shiny/glowy/pretty. But I went ahead anyway. (Edit: Ah... =_= The colours look really harsh on my PC monitor.)

My scanner chewed off the left side of the pic (damn you, scanner!). I only realized when I was done with the clean-up and doing it all over again would be too much hassle. =__= You know how I'm like. But- but it still BOTHERS ME A LOT! *pulls hair*


--- OMAKE! ---


Though, really, I was just too chicken to draw Munto's face in this pic so I cheated.

And I think my copic blender and I have reached some sort of mutual understanding between the two of us.

So amazing. Yumemi looks awesome, and Munto seems to have a hidden cute side to him somewhere ^^ I actually love how he is not showing his face- it adds more a lot more mystique into the picture ^^

Hanesihiko Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I do too. ^^ Or I wish they had stuck with making the 3rd OVA. At least then we'd get an entirely new material instead of 3/4 rehashed stuff from the previous OVAs + 3 new eps, which was really what the entire anime series could be boiled down to.

Wow, beautiful work. :heart:

I have seen clips/AMVs of this and I'm very tempted to watch the series.

I have not gone anime shopping in quite a while... But I don't recall ever seeing this particular series on shelf or advertised as a 'soon to be shelved' series. Then again maybe I'm just blind...? xD

Beautiful art like this makes it all the more tempting.

Exellent job! =)

Thank you so much! :heart: Aww, you should watch it. xD There are two OVAs (dated 2003 & 2005 respectively) and a remake-cum-sequel - an anime series which was released in 2009. It's a mixture of slice-of-life/fantasy story about a girl with the ability to see floating 'islands' in the sky, which are actually the magical Heavenly Kingdom ruled by King Munto. Their main source of energy, 'Akuto' is running low and the kingdoms are starting to fall, so Munto goes to earth in search of the girl, who was prophesied to be the savior of his world. I really love this series but sadly the remake falls short of my expectations. It's still enjoyable and worth a look though. ^^ The 09 anime series is actually a combination of both the OVAs plus extra scenes and a brand new, 3rd arc.

I was so frickin upset wheN i figured out the Munto ended at episode 9 D8 I was like, freaking out. I think they're making a manga, though (but I don't think it's released yet). I had how the ending (for now) is such a cliffhanger, though!! x_x;; Annnyways, this is fabulous :)

Thank you! ^^ Yes, there's a manga but it's not scanlated yet. You can still find some chapters of it online in Chinese, though.

Hanesihiko Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I wish I can read Chinese too, lol~ Nope, I have no idea when the English version will come out. I don't know if there are even any scanlation groups who're taking up this project (Munto's a rather obscure fandom). Unless there are people who are working on it, the chance that the manga'll be available on sites like onemanga is pretty slim. *sad*

D: Nyoooo. Dx Munto needs to be more realized, because it's a great story! :/ Hmm, maybe I can try and see if I can contact one of the people on onemanga and see if they'd be willing to translate it? Hmmmmm. I don't know. Never tried that before :XD: Weeeell maybe they'll actually publish an english version in a year or so? x_X;;
