Part two of Kina Kazuharu draws for MAL is go!

Like before, Kina will be collecting ideas from everyone for his next illustration, but this time will have a little spin on it — Kina will draw a few different rough sketches based on various ideas, and then everyone will vote on which illustration they want to see completed!

The final illustration will be made into a beautiful new About Me template design that everyone can use on their profiles.

Let’s help Kina make the best illustration ever!

How to take part

The event will be held via Kina’s MAL club. Idea submissions for the illustration and subsequent voting will all be carried out in the club, and you might even have a chance to chat with Kina!
