Mahiru Izumi “Queen’s Gate” Mai Shiranui artbook

February 20, 2009

Thought I’d mention another great “Queen’s Gate” artbook, this one is by artist Mahiru Izumi (泉まひる, homepage nsfw) and it’s all about the lovely Mai Shiranui from “King Of Fighters”.

Love how Mahiru Izumi rendered Mai in it, she looks spunky, daring and absolutely irresistible. (Click the images for a larger version.)


More daring than the Iroha “Queen’s Gate” artbook, this “Queen’s Gate – Mai Shiranui” (クイーンズゲイト 紅の忍 不知火舞) book is filled to the brim with all color illustrations of Mai in different poses, some full of action, others very sensual and enticing.

Especially this version of Mai in kimino, where she is partially denuded as the kimono’s top is undone looks gorgeous, fantastic mix of vulnerability, shyness and sensuality in her pose and expression.


Mahiru Izumi, from the circle Mahirutei, also created some terrific doujins for previous Comiket editions, such as C.C. From “Code Geass” and Horo from “Spice & Wolf” focused ones. Next to those doujins and illustrations, Mahiru Izumi also created the artwork for the eroge “Imitation Lover”.


Like Mahiru Izumi’s art style a lot, very colorful and lively and girls like C.C, Horo or Mai look absolutely gorgeous!
Will share some more great images later.
