1902 - The Alliance by annako 1902 - The Alliance by annako
January 30, 1902: The Anglo-Japanese Alliance was signed in London between Britain and Japan, a significant event that helped to end Britain's "Splendid Isolation".


Today is the anniversary of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance---AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. YESCELEBRATIONOFTHESTARTOFTHEIRRELATIONSHIPSHUTUP Please ignore the fact that I completely mauled the Union Jack. :'D I wanted to do something much better, but a lot of personal things happened and I didn't get a lot of time to work on it. ;_; Forgive me, my favorite ship..


The first time I ever got into the pairing was by reading the formation of their alliance in the manga. You can view the comic that ruined my life here: [link]

GO RUIN YOUR LIFE TOO \o/


OH GAWD I lost the original file for this picture sob..so I don't have the actual size anymore /CRYING

Nice commemoration :)

During that era, Japan was one of the fastest growing power along with Germany. The world was stunned when Japan defeated imperial Russia in 1905. It's only too bad that after World War I, relations turned cold with the west.

As a Japanese freak I believe that such an Alliance should be renewed,

Great Britain and Dai Nippon forever!!!

I think, that there's not enough lines on this picture. Your work with color is good, but faces aren't fabulous.

HUGE FLAGS YES... I had no idea what a big pain it is to draw flags until I tried it for their anniversary. ;A; The Union Jack is so misproportionate, I'm really embarrassed SOB... It isn't one of the easier flags to hand-color for sure. ><;;;

Thank you misdre, your anniversary picture makes me happy too :'D

It's always like that. "HEY I GOT A NICE IDEA, THIS IS WHAT I'LL DRAW! .... How come it's this hard?! ;A;"
Oh yes, the Union Jack is pretty much a pain the ass to draw.. Everybody should have simple flags like Nordics HAHA

:3 Glad to hear that~
