Nekopuchi is an artist of tremendous skill, but he grapples with a debilitating case of Makoto-mania which prevents him drawing any but Idolmaster’s charmingly boyish Makoto Kikuchi, though this has at least led to him becoming the undisputed master of Makoto illustration.
He confesses that before he even realises what he is doing he finds himself drawing Makoto; otherwise he is the usual cipher, just identifying himself as working in a creative field.
Judging by the improvement in his art over the six years or so of art he has published, and over his three years of life as a “Makoto-sukii,” we might surmise he is a talented illustrator in the visual content industry.
The 29th was Makoto’s birthday, prompting the illustration above. He writes about his life as a Makoto-maniac:
Today is Makoto Kikuchi’s birthday.
This is my third time celebrating her birthday as a Makoto-sukii.
So, happy birthday Makoto!
Makoto is already my wife, but let’s get married again!
With that in mind I promised to draw her again. Ahh, I just want to hug her! I love her so much it is dangerous…
Recently I had a chance to reflect on just how much I love her. I love drawing her, and that’s fine because I love her, but I get the feeling this is starting to look really bad… But if I can just keep on drawing her I’ll be fine.
It’ll be nice if I’m still drawing her on her next birthday…
If it yields more art of this ravishing quality, it is hard to complain:
He has drawn a few other characters, occasionally, and admits to liking Yayoi, Luccini and Louise, though he seems barely to have drawn the last two.
