Orange Honey

Orange Honey, the personal circle of Ibuki You (伊吹有), is one of my favorite Bleach circles. Ibuki-san only did Kurosaki Ichigo x Kuchiki Rukia books, as far as I know. I think her artwork is beautiful and adorable - Rukia always looks very cute and pretty, but not ridiculously young, and I really like how Ibuki-san draws Ichigo. I'm not familiar with her other works, but I do know that Orange Honey also released doujinshi for Death Note and Ookiku Furikabutte.
