Kurumada Cloth Designs?
« on: May 03, 2015, 01:37:16 AM »
Okay so this just showed up in the Saint Seiya community


It's a scetch supposedly made by Kurumada for the Dorado Cloth. They are reference scetches for Bandai and Toei, apparently.
Apparently a site called mandarake.co.jp, an auction site of sorts, got a package of 25 designs


Got it from here http://saint-seiya-next-dimension.jimdo.com/2015/05/02/cloth-de-dorado-dise%C3%B1o-in%C3%A9dito-realizado-por-kurumada/

Thoughts?

I'm unsure, mainly because of the face being different from Kurumada's style. Plus some of the armor isn't quite as Kurumada's style.

I doubt this is the man's work.

the pose is not his usual "standard" and the cloth style and face don't match up.

Updated: their binder apparently says they are reference scetches that Kuru made for Toei and Bandai

did he really draw it or his assistants? it really doesn't feel like his style.

I quite like the design but it's definitely not Kuru...the body isn't even trying to be blocky and the proportion is much better too.

It doesn't looks like Masami's style but you can never be too sure. Maybe he has more faces that he never showed us or doesn't like, however if that's just a sketch it is very likely to be true but that's just an assumption.

So more sketches are being sold on the Mandarake auction site.
Setteis, scripts and cells are usually auctioned of there, like from Dragonball amongst others.

Lo and behold! Shiva and Agora were conceptualized by Kuru!
Agora who  apparently was originally named Ragora(japanese name of Rāhula) and and Shiva who was originally named Anaritsu (Disciple of Buddha)
Notice how they are wearing the Silver Saint cloaks? :D

Head sketch of Sagitta Maya


Full sketch of Lyra Cloth from the first movir, and the text says that Orpheus was originally gonna be called Orphee like the one later in the manga.

Begs the question to be asked: Will we see Ragora and Anaritsu in any future ND episode?
A guy in another forum apparently knows the one who bought the scetches and said that there are scetches of both Shiva and the Pavo cloth.
