"GREAT FLAMIN' ARSEHOLES!  Is that *Mian*?"

It's been over 20 years since I first read Caravan Kidd, which was the second series I enjoyed from Johji Manabe.  "Outlanders" was the first.  Manabe diverged from the "warrior princess with horns" archtype he used for his leading ladies in both Outlanders and Drakuun, but Mian Toris was quite the character in her own right.  The quote I included above was near the very end of the series after the apocalyptic final battle between Mian and her "sister" Shion, credited to Babo--reluctant friend and occasional business partner of Wataru, the young man who starts the series as Mian's "pet" and eventually becomes her love interest.  Caravan Kidd is a cornerstone of the shonen manga genre, and one of the under-appreciated classics.  Mian and her fellow travelers remain near and dear to my heart now and forever.

It warms the cockles of my heart to read the comments below, realizing I'm not the only fossil in the fandom who fondly remembers this great series!  And yes folks, Mian does sport a tail.  Although I can see where someone might think her hair is just that long.  

I think you've done a good job capturing Mian's playful if not puckish nature.  You've also skillfully rendered her uniform and armor, such as it is.  :)  But where is the scabbard for Mian's sword?  Nice job nevertheless.  Thanks for sharing, FLM!

Dude. I don't know if I even have it anymore, but Outlanders was one of my first mangas (and first exposure to naked breasts in illustrated form ;) ). Awesome stuff. :D

Really cute. She kinda seems to me a combination of Kei and Ranma Saotome.

Is this fanart or is she an original character?

Gosh when was the last time I've seen side locks (because I don't consider them side burns) like that?

Is that a tail or part of her hair? Either way, I really like her design :love:
