Fan Letter Friday (28)

This is fan letter friday. All the time I see nice, special, kind and good authors on twitter, facebook, their own blog, etc. that I make friends with or follow on accident and I adore them. I like them as more than authors. I like them as people. So, I decided, since I don't have time to review every single book these people have written, I'm going to write to them. I am going to flaunt my love for them all over the internet and hopefully brighten their day. I am going to sound, insane, rambly and possibly like a stalker, but that's just part of the fun right?

Dear Arina Tanemura, (creator of Full Moon wo Sagashite, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Time Stranger Kyoko, Gentleman's Alliance and many, many more.)

I have admired you for years. Your art was incredibly beautiful, beyond anything I'd ever seen when I was younger. I loved Mitsuki and admired her courage for years. Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne was a great series that I wanted to last for much longer than it did. Time Stranger Kyoko and Gentleman's Alliance had the most gorgeous clothes I had ever seen in my life. I wanted to be a character in one of your mangas just so I could wear those dresses.

I collected as many books as I could of yours. I was absolutely devastated, I mean depressed for days over one of my friends losing my five volumes of Full Moon wo Sagashite. I cried when I heard the news. I immediately went out and bought all the volumes I'd lost. It's almost embarrasing how much they mean to me. I wouldn't trade them for almost anything.

This may be one insignificant fan letter in a drove of thousands that you get a week, but I just wanted you to know how much you changed my life, how much your mangas mean to me. I think it's very important for people to know how much they're admired.
