Nakamaru Yuuichi's "Please give the idea to me”

This time I didn’t paint a “find the mistake”. I wanted to answer to some requests so I draw 2 cartoon characters’ themes. There were plenty of requests for [drawing] the members, so I chose the dog races one, but I didn’t draw them skillfully. Members also commented a lot, but this time I tried to persist with my ideas.
Then, I also answered to a spring taste request.

REQUEST 1: I always look forward to this WU’s corner. My drawing request is: drawing some cartoon characters of different dog races. I like Nakamaru-kun’s drawing touch, I really would like to see this one. I have a Chihuahua at home so I’d be glad if there was a Chihuahua. (Penname: none)

I tried to draw and answer to the request “draw the members as dog characters”. Probably the image of KAT-TUN keeping dogs is quite widespread. I have received such a request many times. For this reason I challenged it today. There were many opinions from the members saying that "*different race* is good", but this time I ignored their opinions and drew them as I thought (laughs)


Kamechs: It doesn’t eat anything but good dog food. An innate high-level dog.
Nakamaru’s comment: Isn’t Kame a bit Dachshund-like? And isn’t he keeping a Dachshund? Then I made him a Dachshund. Also this dog’s nature is similar to Kame’s. He has simply become a dog (laughs)

Collinosuke: it sleeps a lot and has a warm behavior. Always sleepy.
Nakamaru’s comment: I don’t know its real behavior, but at first glance it looks a quiet dog, so I thought Taguchi as a Collie. It’s my mental image, so I don’t know if it’s fitting.

Doberkoki: It eats meat and doesn’t eat vegetables. Intimidates other dogs.
Nakamaru’s comment: I thought Koki as a Doberman. How to say, I thought that their intimidating characters were similar. [This Koki’s portrait] was well received by Ueda too.

Beagleyuichi: A conservative.
Nakamaru’s Comment: At first I thought of drawing another kind of dog race, but I couldn’t draw it decently so I stopped. Beagleyuichi is a conservative character, so it’s a character similar to me.

Tatsuyatian: It likes to move and is restless. A character that likes running. Friendly.
Nakamaru’s comment: You know, Ueda was the most difficult! Actually I wanted to draw that one… the small size fluffy dog that looks like a stuffed toy… what’s its name? That one that’s very popular now… ah! Toy poodle! Yes, I drew him as a toy poodle but it wasn’t a good drawing so I made him a Dalmatian.

REQUEST 2: In spring cherry blossoms bloom, many insects come out, it has a warm image, so I’d like you do draw something using “spring” as theme. (Penname: none)

I suppose that when this number is on sale the Hanami season will be already finished, but during this interview cherry blossoms are exactly in full blossom, so I answered to this request. Kame asked me to let him think about one character name, but it didn’t change so much from the one I chose, so I rejected it (laughs)


(clockwise order)

SAKURA: When the best bloom season arrives, everyone looks for the sakura tree. Hibernant (animals) or sleeping people exit outside.
HACCHII (sounds like “bee”): It moves a lot. It thinks a lot about his companions and it’s trusted by people.
TSUGURU AND TSUKUMOCCHAN: They were waiting for the spring. They’re really happy for the long-awaited spring that has arrived. Their behavior is kind. They’re an “indoor” type, so while it’s cold they hide and play games.
ASUKA AND SAYAKA (the 2 flowers): They like girls talk very much. They only talk about Make-up, nails, sweets.
JUSTINE/JUSTIN (the sexless ladybug LOL): It’s right in the middle of enjoying this spring. It’s warm so it becomes sleepy. Following the weather, it feels happy.
