Izumi Tsubasu and Ryohka are, in my mind, similiar to Nishimata Aoi and Suzuhira Hiro. Both of them have worked together since their earliest days, producing what was considered to be eye candy for eroges. Needless to say the eye candy and moe attracted more buyers than the actual plot (think Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka and Shuffle). Both pairs have doujin circles. Both pairs eventually split apart. Izumi Tsubasu left Feng, and has since then worked on Mashiro Iro symphony. Suzuhira Hiro has left Navel, and has then worked on Stellar theater and Yosuga no Sora, among other things.
What differentiates the pairs in my eyes, however, is the fact that I actually like Izumi Tsubas and Ryohka.
Which is what caused me to be surprised at aozora no mieru oka.
I should have expected this.
I have SEEN promotional art for this game.
I KNEW that this was drawn years ago.
But I have simply been too pampered.
The countless anatomy mistakes jump out like frogs on crack. The loveless coloring screams generic. The-th…..
On an unrelated note, Katahane is proving to be more interesting. I still don’t like any of the characters though
