Natsuki Behind The Wheel by NotoAyako Natsuki Behind The Wheel by NotoAyako
It sure has been a while since we last heard about Kuuga Natsuki-san, and last weekend, she was spotted during a drift practice session held on a local airport's runway. Seems like she really pushed both her car and her skill to the limit.

But then again... that wasn't a fact, Oooops... :P

So, as I said earlier, I'll make my vectored 350Z drifting with the owner (Kuuga Natsuki) behind the wheel. Drawn Natsuki's pic soon after uploading the vectored 350Z then combined them up together, both done in Illustrator. The final touch was done in Photoshop, though.

Next, a close up picture from the cabin that shows Natsuki's expression when she drifts. :D

The close up picture is done, it's here

Tenaga 350Z dan S15 kurang lebih sama. Kalau dibaca lagi di keterangannya S15-nya Shizuru mesinnya sama kayak 350Z-nya Natsuki, jadi yang nentuin tinggal keahlian nyetirnya aja, hehehe... :iconmoewinkplz:

Hmmm... Natsuki memang ahli mnyetir,
tapi menurutku Shizuru juga cwe yg jenius...
So... go after her, Shizuru!

Somebody did suggest me to write an alternate story of Mai-HiME, but with cars instead of child. I'm personally pretty much interested in that idea but somehow afraid that people will consider it as boring since not all people like cars. :iconsweatdropplz:

Well.... to be honest I have that kind of story, too. But instead of Mai-HiME characters, I'd rather use my own for the story. You can read the synopsis in my scrapbook, the ones entitled "BattleXShift". Go ahead if you want to write your own story about Mai-HiME characters on street racing scene, I'd really like to help with the technical stuffs. :iconheehee-plz:

Oh, come on... it's not like the idea of putting Mai-HiME characters in the street racing scene belongs to me at the first place. Anyone may have this kind of idea. Perhaps you can read my "BattleXShift" story first before deciding to actually write it. :icontskplz:

It's okay if you don't want to write that story, just please be more confident of your writing, will you? :iconhugglesplz:

Haha... :rofl: That could be a nice title for the next sequel of Mai-Hime, if Sunrise's really willing to make it. ;P

The idea actually came up from Natsuki's bike. I think she better drive a tuned 350Z instead of riding that old-fashioned bike of hers. :woohoo:

XD It's up to us to support the Mai-Series enough for SUNRISE to make something epic like that. ;p

LMAO! Oh Aya, when it comes to the world of vehicles, classics should be well preserved! But I guess it wouldn't hurt the pouty lone wolf to upgrade her ducati. Mai-HiME took place in 2004, change is good. XD

Haha... that would be nice if they realli make it for real. :#1: But I know a bit that there will be some bad critics from Fast and Furious fans out there who claim that it's just a mere copycat attempt to Tokyo Drift. :shrug:

Yeah, classics should be preserved, in a Museum. Ah, but I saw a picture of her in the Mai-Hime manga, standing next to a new model of Ducati Superbike, it's a 1087, if I'm not mistaken. The new Ducati bike looks like a perfect match for Natsuki, although I also want to see her ride a Yamaha superbike, too, like YZF-R1 or R6. :w00t:

XD Tokyo Drift. Aside from the cool rides, seeing the city of Tokyo and Keiko Kitagawa <3333, the movie was pretty bad. My opinion. lol I don't think anyone will claim such a thing since automobiles of any kind are universally loved.

The YZF-R1 is gorgeous! I suppose Natsuki could of had more of a selection! When I first saw the Mai-HiME series I thought she would be one of those characters with a garage full of superbikes, like Batman or something. X3

You're right about that, even since the popularity of Fast and Furious series rise up, more racing-themed movies came out. Most of their plots are about street racing, unfortunately there is only a few of them which is worthy watching while the rest of them are just merely cheap movies. :iconkyleoniplz:

That would be nice to see Natsuki with a bunch of superbikes collection. I'd really love to see that, too. :iconinloveplz:
Well... since we can't see that in anime, how about we ask 'someone' to make it? :plotting:
