Back in April, I ran a poll on our Facebook. “What new anime series this season do you most want to see fan art of?” Second guessing myself, I provided the option, ‘Screw them all. Madoka FTW!” Well, Madoka won and Madoka was last season.
Even now, the Madoka series is still popular and still fresh in our minds. With that, we present to you the CDS Madoka illustration anthology, #CDS0027 Puella Magi
Madoka is the series that defines anime in 2011. Memorable characters, impactful scenes, meaningful themes and a cute mascot that everyone loves to hate. It took the normally cheerful magical girl genre and turned it upside down. It is harsh, cruel, beautiful, magnificent, brilliant and we cannot take our eyes of it.
When we first contemplated this project, JUN told me, “I want to make this a CDS book.” To this end, he succeeded. Everyone in CDS knows about Madoka and can draw something for it. Given the popularity of Madoka within the team, it wasn’t hard to amass a good number of Madoka fanart from all of us. In this book, you will see the diversity of style from all the CDS artists as they each draw their take on Madoka. And of course, not to neglect our lone guest artist, Radiant Dreamer for his contribution as well. We <3 you deep deep.

We have been teasing about it for quite a while and it is time to fully come clean with this hush hush project. As 10k fans on Facebook seem to loom in the horizon, some crazy people within CDS decided to do something totally new for the fans. The Aizawa went well and it is [...]
What is CDS up to? Why so quiet recently? Well, not much really. The first half of the year has always been pretty quiet for everyone. With SOY gone from the scene, the first half of the year is a time for doujin artists to relax, sit back, slack and psyche themselves up for the [...]
