Aoi Nishimata Artwork Coming to US Disney Parks

6 Jul

From Anime News Network:

Aoi Nishimata, the artist who designed the characters in the Shuffle! and We Without Wings – Under the Innocent Sky anime, announced on her blog on Sunday that she is collaborating with Disney. The “Disney Collaboration” Princess Line feat. Aoi Nishimata will not be sold in Japan at first, but at the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

I’m of two minds about the Tinkerbell artwork above. On first glance, it feels a little disturbingly moe to me. On the other hand, I like that it reflects a more girlish Tink, and a more, well, sprite-ly fairy than some of the more glamorized, ditzy Tinks that we’ve seen in recent years (for example, this pin). So I’m very curious to see more as the series continues.
