Marin Kitagawa NHML

The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for April 2024 is Marin Kitagawa from My Dress-Up Darling. Marin was one of those fleeting internet waifus who was really popular in fanart during the original airing of her anime. I have a tumultuous relationship with these types of flavor-of-the-moment popular girls, but Marin’s one I did like as I enjoyed her show. Design wise she’s attractive, but in a sort of generic way, but her personality and mannerisms do a lot to elevator her in my eyes. I flirted with drawing her at the time, although I don’t really like getting in on trends much, and after her five minutes were up she did get a shot in a First Shoot poll, but came up short. She’s finally making it into the Studio now through the NHML, however, and her crush Wakana gets to join her.

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 Dress-Up Darling. 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!
