Mme et Mme, Hanazono by www-ninemil-com Mme et Mme, Hanazono by www-ninemil-com
Strawberry Panic's Shizuma Hanazono & Nagisa Aoi.

Similar to 'Yamiberry of the Dead,' this is where being limited to an A4 scanner once again puts boundaries on the extent of my work. This time, although the line work has come out reasonably clearly, applying the shading techniques I used in my last Mina Tepes piece is completely unviable - the lead work is just too fine for PhotoShop to recognise it as a solid line. It's A3 scanner time, or that nice Wacom tablet I've been dreaming of, else all my work will remained restricted to 4:3 ratio portrait works :/

Huh, is that a bridal dress Nagisa is in... it's been a while since I've seen the series, I think she was wearing something like that in an allusion to marriage in the final episode where she pretty much elopes with Shizuma but I can't remember...

She didn't have a head dress for the Etoile-sen, no, but the gown was pretty bridal. And the head dress here really suffered from the size of the paper I was working on :/ Had to cram everything into a 8" by 4" rectangle :( Not enough space for that amount of detail...

Sadly, I don't think we'll ever see one. The novels and manga ran completely differently, and in those, the original author got to finish her story, so there's no motivation for anyone to write a sequel :/ Shame, because the novels and manga were pretty poor in comparison... They really need to give it at least an OVA just to tie up the loose ends...

When you say "the original author got to finish her story", you seem to be implying that the anime author didn't. Do you just mean because it ended abruptly, or is there some behind-the-scenes drama I don't know about?

Personally, I'll take an abrupt ending over NO ending... the manga mysteriously stopped after volume 2, with the Etoile election only one-third done. But as you say, the manga wasn't very good, so it's no great loss.

(Great pic, btw!)

The novel canon and manga canon are identical, so we know where the manga was going, even if it didn't get there, since the novels were finished. And while the novels didn't go any further than the end of the Etoile-sen themselves, there was a lot more closure in many respects, with some of the aftermath already having been dealt with. The anime just ends, with plenty in those final closing stills to suggest the screen writers were still engaged with the characters, and could write more if they so wished. It just didn't happen.

Now given Kimino-san having finished her own version of the story in the novels, (and given some odd comments about being influenced or edited, in one of the afterwords for Baby Princess,) I do have to wonder if she stood in the way of the anime continuing. And while there wasn't any drama as such, the anime was, afaik, much more successful than the paper product, and the original manga artist quit abruptly, hence the manga never being completed. You have to wonder if something went on in the background...

Quite a few people have tried finishing it properly; [link] I don't know if fanfic is your thing, but there's a fair few good writers on there. I had a go myself, which seemed to be quite popular [link]
