The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for April 2022 is Eri from My Hero Academia. She was introduced in the last episode of the anime I watched, so I never saw her arc and only know a few surface details about her. I never really had any intention of drawing her, since I have no personal attachment to the character and she’s a bit younger than I typically go for, but here we are. At first I figured I’d just draw her with Deku, since I know he has to protect her during her arc, but then I thought I’d use her NHML as an excuse to draw someone else from the show I’ve gotten requests for. I was thinking either Mirio or Nejire, since I saw pics of her with both of them when searching, but after skimming her Wikia page I decided on Mirio. It seems like they have kind of a cute relationship.
With this post, NHML nominations for the month of May are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, My Hero Academia. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of these things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting on this post, or emailing me (Nearphotison2010@yahoo.com). I’ll compile a list of the nominees in the sidebar of this site, and then on May 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!
