In memory of Kang Han Ju, A.K.A. Jilpoong17

On Monday I got a message that a fellow Muv-Luv fan had passed away on Friday 21st November 2014. Kang Hu Ju, better known by his nickname Jingpoong17, was known for his well illustrated images among the fandom, especially the images he made for different character’s birthdays.

Kang Hu Ju had a passion only few people can match. His blog was even named Jilpoong17’s Muv-Luv Life, despite the blog being used to update about projects he was working on. He had a subtle influence on the fandom via his works to the extent âge themselves seemed to have commissioned few pictures from him.

The most public source for his passing has been posted in Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse’s page. If you use social media and have enjoyed his works, do drop a message.

Some of his works are already lost, but some may be recovered as people scavenge their hard drives. The one posted here is one of my personal favourites from his works, and perhaps its fitting image due him favouring Meiya out of all the characters.

We'll see you in another time, when it's our time to loop. Until then, my friend
