Twelve Kingdoms Trio by rosesmusings Twelve Kingdoms Trio by rosesmusings
(Haha, I have an awful lot of 'trio' fan art pieces, don't I?) XD
Felt the need to come up with some more Twelve Kingdoms fan art. It's a bit of a quicker piece, though I like the way it turned out.

Shoukei, Yoko and Suzu.

(The Twelve Kingdoms Fuyumi Ono)

Great take on these three. Big fan of the series. I see you've read the books from the comments section and you mentioned a new one. When did this come out?!?

Thank you! ^^ Actually, the books are merely in the process of being re-released with new covers. At the time I mis-translated the Japanese announcements about it and thought they meant a new book being released. ^^; But, with the re-release, more of them might be translated and published nationally, which would be great! :D

It's quite good! Though the series is currently unfinished. I enjoy the books a bit more, but the anime is all right. (I'd probably only recommend watching up to episode 39, though.)
You can find a link to the books online here - [link] and a fan-made trailer for the anime here - [link]

Beautiful as always :)

I am curious though, I've never heard of the Twelve Kingdoms... could you perhaps give me a general idea of what it's about?
Given the fact that our interests have followed similar paths in the past, there's a decent chance I'll find it interesting.

It's somewhat similar to Avatar: the Last Airbender - as the setting is a mythical Chinese world. The general aura of the story is a bit closer to the Chronicles of Narnia, though. It mostly revolves around the stories of various royals of the 'Twelve Kingdoms' - though primarily Yoko, the empress of a kingdom in the east.
There isn't much of a magic system, but what they do have is very strict and exclusive.
I definitely suggest reading the novels first. [link] (The fan translations are a lot better than the regular English publications, to be honest.)
The anime is fairly good, but it was discontinued due to lack of material at the time. If you watch it, I'd say it would probably be best to end at episode 39.
There is an excellent recommendation post here - [link] along with a link page - [link]
