YOKO(?) from GURREN LAGANN by AdamWarren YOKO(?) from GURREN LAGANN by AdamWarren
Behold, a sketch of Yōko (from the Gainax anime Gainax anime Gurren Lagann) which I'll be dropping off at the San Diego Comic-Con in only a few short days. The "YOKO(?)" in the title, alas, refers to the fact that dA's titling doesn't allow for proper macron usage (that is, "Yōko").

By the way, here's a likewise SDCC-bound pencil sketch of Emp, the eponymous heroine of my "sexy superhero comedy" series Empowered, cosplaying as Yōko*:



*Or, as I dubbed her for that sketch, "Yohko", using a somewhat archaic means of rendering the Japanese "long O" in English**; the macron ("Yōko") version is, of course, much more pleasing. Zero props, however, to the folks who claimed "Yohko" was a misspelling of "Yoko"; nay, "Yōko" is the way to go, kids, to clearly indicate the long O in her name (ヨーコ).

**Still, "oh" was preferable to the other (non-macron) ways often used (back in the day) to indicate the long O, such as "oo" or "ou".

I can't believe Devil Hunter Yohko is archaic already. In my day, we had to travel to Suncoast Video at the Pheasant Lane Mall, and buy anime VHS tapes....and we liked it. Today it's on Youtube. **oldman voice**
