I am completely in awe over this painting.  It just gives me goose bumps and I want to write a short story piece for it.  Can I???  I haven't played Diabolik Lovers yet, but I've done a lot of research and this is PERFECT for Kou and Yui.  Kou's stage charisma is s blinding that it conceals his darker true self, just as a siren's voice blinds sailors to their doom.  He's pulling her mesmerized under so he can possess her and no one else can. She has no choice.  Yet at the same time, his grasp at the back of her neck is gentle, contrasting to the rough pull on her wrist, revealing both of his two sides, the cruelty and the fleeting kindness.  The contrast between their hair is very poignant, the gorgeous predator with the beautiful prey. Her hair in particular is nearly ethereal, like she is not going to be for this world long because of the water demon's desire for her.   Yui's eyes are closed, and she isn't resisting.  She's already caught in his thrall and know it's impossible to escape, no matter what her fate is, or how cruel he can be, she knows she can't escape him.  She can only give in and hope his kind side surfaces. The art is the perfect balance between possession and emotion and a breath-taking tribute. IN LOVE!!!!
