First, I'd like to thank for drawing Kaine and making me curious about that game! That's how I found out about it and fell in love with it *your game suggestions are always a must-buy dear! *
And secondly, THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU to my friend Serenity for buying me this game as an *super* early birthday gift I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH!
So yup! Whenever I'm taking my half hour breaks from studying and commissions, I play Nier
THIS GAME IS AMAZING I TELL YOU! I just got to the point where you meet Emil, and...andddddd... I LOVE HIM AAAAAH And the floating book, Weiss, is so super funny omg I just love his humor
Aaaah I have so many good words to say about that game although I'm not even half-way through it! The characters are great, the gameplay is awesome, the story is simple to understand and keeps you curious and interested at all times, and the soundtrack IS FREAKING. DIVINE. DIVIIIIIIIIIIIIINE. I find myself singing along all the time haha!
The only thing that made me pout is... the Japanese version has this super hawt protagonist, while the European version has his 40-years-old-man version
I want to play as a bishie sobsob But I actually like the older version too~ He's fun to play as~
But yes, Emil. That adorable little thing omg <3 And I love Kaine too <3333
Expect more fanarts in the future because I'm so in love with that game
Time: 2 hours

Tried using less colors this time, since once you enter Emil's mansion, all the colors fade~
It was refreshing working like that! Next time I'd like to try out a softer shading
Thank you for looking!
Now back to answer some notes and work on commishes~
Anyway I'm halfway through the game now and UGH IT'S SO FREAKING HARD (maybe it's just me, I'm bad at games) BUT IT'S SO GOOD... good cause YES and bad cause I should be workiiinggg... orz
I agree though, I wish we had the option to have either replicant or gestalt... I... I wanted to play as a hot guy... I mean-- >-> ...oh I'm not even going to bother pretending otherwise anymore HAHA
Anyway, you've drawn this beautifully ;u; I've always loved that watery style you use with colouring and lines, and the sort of broken colour... it's just wonderful ;A; and yet again I'm crying over how beautiful you make the backgrounds, a small but important detail I think ;v; it really makes a big difference and sets the mood. Amazing work! //cries and rolls away to play more
so happy youre enjoying the game!! ;7;
AND YES IT IS HARD!! YOU NEED TO LEVEL UP A LOT!!
but yes I really wanted to play as the bishi Nier ;3; But in the end, I also really liked papa Nier because the father-daughter story was more moving ;u; In the japanese, it's a brother-sister story, and it gets a bit incest XDDD
THANK YOU SO MUCH SWEETIE!!! broken color! AWWW thx >u< I really tried to use colors that remind you of the atmosphere of the game ;u;
THANKS SO MUCH!! so glad you like it! /)////v///(\ \
*yess go play XD*
Mmm, it is a good game! Leveling up is so difficult though, it takes so long lkfxa;kdsfh
Though I agree, the father-daughter story is great too in the end, and I think he's a quite a likable character so it's nice to play as him-- but I always felt sad whenever Yonah was like DAD CAN I TALK TO YOU? and he's like NOPE. WORKING, BYE. ;3; and oh boy do I feel sad now, I just finished the entire game and I felt kind of bad for the shadowlord ;; if my theory is correct, the shade nier and yonah would have been the original humans... like the one see at the very start, so I dunno.. I guess I just felt sad because it's like he still lost his daughter anyway in the end.
Yeah it does work well to recreate the atmosphere- especially for emil's mansion. kind of dulled, but in a good way. It works cause the game is pretty gloomy :'D gosh you're so creative
Ah that's true! You gotta use some items that raise the exp rate you get so you can level up faster! Also, go to the final boss at around lvl 35 !! x_x
Otherwise it's impossible omg
UNLESS YOU'VE ALREADY BEATEN THE GAME ;7;
AHAHAH YES POOR YONAH! Silly dad-Nier never had time ;3;
AH OMG YOU FINISHED THE GAME AAAAAAAAAAH SO GOOOOOD! And yes I cried at the end cuz poor Shadowlord ;;
Dont forget to reply the game 3 times! There's other endings! There's Ending A *the normal ending that you get the first time you play the game*. Then ending B once you finish Ending A, reload your game file and go to the shadowlord again. Then Ending C that you unlock after getting all the weapons and going to the shadowlord, and picking the first option I think. Check it out on youtube or in a guide!
AH AND DONT PLAY ENDING D! It'll delete all the data/progress of the game ;3;
//aah and thank youuu! Hope you liked the game ;7;
You drew Emil so nicely!!!
And I can just say itīs so true, I also envy the japanese for their bishi-maincharacter (actually, I buyed the japanese game just to be able to play him) but the old one is oaky too. But DID YOU KNEW that Emil actually has a crush on the young (bishi) Nier in the japanse game???
There is also a sequence (where is one of the few differences in the gamess) where this mariage is and Emil is talking to Nier and saying, he wants to be a bride(!!!) once too and if Nier ever plans to marry. And when Nier left the room, heīs saying that he was implying that he strongly deesires to be Nierīs bride. QoQ
OH GODSSSSS YES! I'd love to have the Japanese version as well ;A; I mean Nier is soooo bishie there! I'm so jelly of the Japanese!
W-wait...did I just read that right!!? EMIL HAS A CRUSH ON BISHINIER???
Oh my goodness THIS IS AAAAH!!
Aldfkajflakfajf I just read in the official Grimoire Nier Guide that Emil is really into guys OMG THAT EXPLAINS IT ADLKFJAFLKAJFA AND HE WANTS TO BE A BRIDE TOO??? AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Nier's bride omgggggg I'M SO GONNA DRAW THEM TOGETHER AFTER READING THIS AAAAAAAAAAAH!!! Thank you THANK YOU THANK YOU so much for telling me omgomgomgomg this got me so excitedddd I loved Emil from the start since he's so cute BUT NOW THAT I KNOW THIS I LOVE HIM EVEN MORE!
The japanese version is so great especially Bishi-Nier. I so love Bishi Nier.
Though at the beginning he is more like a cute Bishi Nier, but looks somehow a little bit idiotic, but after those 5 years (after Yonah was taken away from the also bishi shadow lord) he looks soooooooo damn good. *0*
And yes I also loved Emil from the start (the name of his butler is sebastian wtf XDXDXD ) but the moment I knew he really is in love with Nier....all was over for me and now Iīm all over those two!!!! Also because Bishi Nier is also supposed to be gay. *0*
And did you know about the hottie Tyrann? Itīs someone who shares the body with Kaine and seriously....that guy is crazy. (and the gae getīs even better when youīre through it first and second time)
Though I have to admit, I love emilīs englisch voice a lot more than his japanese.
OH PLEEEAAASE DRAW THEM!!!!! *0*
(I even asked a friend of mine to draw them soujisetah.deviantart.com/art/... )
Oh I think when he's 16 he looks like a parrot heeee! Cute but yeah a bit idiotic too haha BUT SO CUTE I SWEAR!
Ah wait so the Shadowlord's appearance in the Japanese is different as well? HAVENT SEEN HIM!!!
Seriously thanks so much for telling me! AND OMG WAIT! So Nier is gay too? I finished the game today *Ending C and I know what happens in D*, so I spend all the evening reading the Grimoire Nier guidebook and the short story were Nier prostitutes himself! So sad but woah does that mean he's gay too? .0.
Oh and yes having finished the game by now I know Tyrann His voice is so WOAH!
And I totally agree about Emil's english voice! I like it better too~ He sounds way cuter *and shota-er omg*
I will I will! Definitely! I just need to find some time since I'm busy with commissioned work right now sob ;3;
BUT AAAAAH SO CUTE YOUR FRIEND DREW THEM OMG SOSO CUTE!!
Japanese Nier is sooooo endless beautiful!!!! 0
xD Yes, the 16 years old Nier really looks a little bit idiotic, but somehow it also fitīs.
And yes, the japanese Shadow Lord looks different as well, because he is, after all, the same boy from the beginning and since in the beginning in the japanese game, you also have a young boy and not the old one (I guess because you should think it could be the same boy as Nier) and so the shadow Lord also looks younger and more-bishi-like.
.....Wait. WHAT?!? I havnīt played Ending D!!!! O.O (thatīs the problem when youīre playing the japanese and englisch version at the same time xD it takes thedouble of the time)
I just had the ending when Emils head was rolling through the desert. OxO A kinda...awkward ending. I was happy Emil was alive....but......that rolling and happiely talking head was kinda creepy. xD
But.....Nier prostitutes himself?!?!? Now I HAVE to continue playing!!! And yes, the bishi Nier is supposed to be gay.
Ouuuh, yes Tyranns voice soooo dammn freaking HOT!!!!! But yes, Emilīs englisch voice is a lot more Shota and...I love how he sounds when he cries. So heart-breaking. QQ (oh my, the scene when bishi Nier takes "monster" Emil into his arms.......>o< )
Oh, I canīt wait to see it!!!! xD Since I also love your style so much!!!! Argh!!!
I wish I could also draw them, but I am too afraid my skills are still not good enough. I would just be dissapointed about myself. xD
But what a good thing I still have cosplay. xD
Oh I just watched all the cutscenes in japanese so WOW YES! THE SHADOWLORD IS DIFFERENT AS WELL!! I really like the young Shadowlord~ He's really really cute He's bishie too!
Wow so you're playing both versions at the same time???!! Should have done that as well but the Japanese version was so expensive!! T3T
Hehe that ending is so awkward but so cute as well! So happy he still lives! Continue playing for the other endings as well!
YES! You can read the Grimoire Nier guidebook here *creators confirm that Emil is gay and loves Nier heeeee*: docs.google.com/document/d/1vE…
And here is one of the short stories that the creators wrote, in which Nier is prostituting himself for Yonah's sake ;u; It's pretty sad though~ docs.google.com/document/d/10Y…
It's not something that happens in the game though! It's something that happens one year before the start of the game, when Nier is 15 <3
EMIL CRYING MAKES ME GO HNNNNNNNN!!! I'm such a pedo-bear omg shame on me That Nier-Emil hug was soooooooo cute
WAAAH THANKS! ;D; *runs to finish commissions so I can draw Nier fanarts <3*
ADLKFJALDFKAJF WARN ME BEFORE YOU COSPLAY ANYTHING NIER RELATED BECAUSE I MIGHT AS WELL ABDUCT YOU AFTER I SEE IT HOHOHOHO!!
Oooooh now I see! So cool you two did it that way! AND AHAHAHAHA GOOD THING YOU FOUND OUT AND TOLD ME AS WELL!!!
Yeah poor 15 years old p--- PARROT AHAHAHAHAHAHA But yeah they say Nier had his long hair down until that thing with the prostitution happened, so he tied it up, because he felt really nervous when his long hair was touching his shoulders...who knows what that guy did to him ;A;
But looks like he's ok with it later when he's 21 XD
AAAAH LETS GO PEDO FOR EMIL AHAHAHAHA!
Thanks for the warning! AND OMG SHUN AS WELL???? I'M GONNA DIE AAAAAAAH!!! NIER AND SHUN! MY HEART WONT BE ABLE TO TAKE IT!
*oh and please ignore the fact that I just ran straight to your gallery and faved so much.... hope that's not creepy of me~ *
Emil is such an amazing character.
And OMG you also like Nier.
such a sweet drawing of him *0*
A-ah second image...I think I know what you're talking but I'm not that far in the sorry yet (/w\)
Spoilers are like the worst things ever seen (heard) ;___;
SO PRETTY. SO SWEET. SO SAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!!! UUUUUUUUUUUUUU
AAAAADFSADFGSDFJSDGFAJDFGKDGAFASF YOU ARE SO WELCOME!!!!! I LOOOOOOOVE RECOMMENDING GAMES
eeeeeeek the soundtrack is literally the best thing ever, listen to it forever and ever!!!! Have you heard the piano collection? It's super relaxing
haha! Papa!Nier is still pretty nice, though bishe!Nier is easier on the eyes... Some points in the story work better if Nier is the papa rather than the older brother.... I think being a father is a more convincing motivation (just how i feel though... the other ways makes him seem like he has a sister complex).
Hope you're having tons of fun playing!!! Happy gaming!
THANK YOU AGAIN!! Oh yes yes!! I've seen your Drakengard 3 related posts! SO COOL OMG HOW DO YOU ALWAYS FIND THESE AWESOME GAMEES I CANT EVEN!!!
*that official art of Drakengard and Nier is SO AWESOME! I love that artist omg!*
Ho ho of course I've heard the piano collection! I even printed the sheet music and play Kaine's theme and the Song of Ancients on my piano from time to time
Actually yes, I really like Papa!Nier as the protag, character wise. Design wise I like bishie!Nier more, but yes, Papa!Nier goes better with the story *and lol sister complex!! So true! *
THANK YOU AGAIN I CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH!
ANYTIME MY DEAR!!!!
I end up coming across them randomly on gaming websites or tumblr... like I'll see an article or a screenshot or official artwork or hear a song and go "oh that sounds interesting" and spend the rest of the day looking into it xD
Like I got interested in NIER after hearing the Piano Collection version of Emil on tumblr and going ASDFSAFSDFSDFASDFASSDFWHEREISTHISFROM. *truestory*
you have.... the sheet music.....? EEEEEH!!?!! Where did you find it?! I've been looking everywhere but couldn't find it; though I found the piano version of the scores (not the piano collections....)
Yeah.... Papa!Nier is such a nice character. I think they changed him around for different audience; the designers thought that western players would like to play as someone older? bishe!Nier is just so pretty though..... feels like a bit of a waste xD
ALDKJFALFKJA USING EMIL AND KAINE AS PLAYABLE CHARACTERS OH MY GOD! That'd be HEAVEN!
Oh I see I see! It's like that for me too, but most of the times I discover new games through you and your tumblr posts haha
Yes I have the sheet music for 25 soundtracks .0. It's the official piano sheets book as far as I see~ *I think, but it's not the sheets for the piano collections. The sheets I have for Kaine's theme skip a part that can be heard only in the piano collection version of that song hmmm* Dont remember where I got it from but I just did lol! XD I can send it to you if you want
Yeah lol western audiences dun like pretty bishies as the protags I guess sobsob
Oh i see i see.... i have that sheet music too! It's just that the official piano collections sounds soooo much prettier!! They added pretty little arrangements all over the place
Have you noticed how japanese games then to lean toward the young good looking mains while westerns go for something more.... rugged? Hm... At least that's how I end up feeling a lot. Like assassins creed characters are mostly in their 20s-30s (sometimes older), while final fantasy characters are rarely older than 21.
OMG IMAGINE PLAYING AS EMIL AND FLOATING AROUND AAAAAAH!!
Oh I understand ;3; And yes the piano collections have so many extra little arrangements!
AHAHAHA YES TOTALLY! Japan likes bishies and fanservice and it's so sad they took all this out for the non-Japan releases ;A;
And yeah I dont think Assassin's Creed has characters under 25 years old! Even when Ezio was around 20, they made him look like 30!
Like FF Type-0 right? All high-schoolers haha!
AHAHAHA wonder what a 13435 years old would look like LOL! But yeah Emil is 1400 for instance and he's still a little boy! I love that in Japanese games haha!
This is a nice piece, sakonma ;w;
I wish you luck with your commissions >w<
Yes I know! It took my friend so much time to find the game here in our country! So sad! It should be more popular ;3;
IT IS! AND I TOTALLY PLAN TO REPLAY IT AND SEE ALL THE ENDINGS!! *and I'm the type of person who normally never does that so that says a lot about how much I love that game! *
