Horseradish's comment

Dear Reader,
If you are looking for a wallpaper about four cheerful youngsters on a perfect crime quest made by two ill-fated illustrators, look elsewhere. Horseradish and Yamaro are intelligent and resourceful adults, and you might expect that they would do great collaborations. Don't. For them, doing a collaboration is really not what they had in mind----but truth be told, they really enjoyed their time in making this wallpaper.

Truth be told, within the depths of the story behind this collaboration, you will notice that this wallpaper was created for all the people who loves typography, FUNKY colors, crazy backgrounds, crime-solving quests, video games, weird ideas (that turn out to be great), and brainstorming.

It is my solemn duty to stay up all night researching, writing, vectoring, messaging, and coloring the history of this wallpaper, but you may be more comfortable getting a good night's sleep or getting a hot mug of cocoa. In that case, you should probably choose some other else's work.

With all due respect,


This collab was originally intended to be made by me and my man FNatt. But, due to the lack of inspiration and motivation on both sides, we decided to drop it.

Me, on the other hand, even though I decided to drop it----I did not drop the entirety of the project at all. I still wanted to finish it. This wallpaper was supposed to be a colorful + typography wall. Since I have another friend, who also shares the same passion with me, I asked none other than @Yamaro himself.

To my great surprise, he accepted my request. I was like, "GREAT! (OwO)". So we rambled about things and stuff and then I sent the file to him. I already made a background at that point and I was just expecting some marriage of typography and other stuffs----then again, I got this PM from him saying that he started again the BG from scratch, and I was like, "OH NOES. D:", BUT, he had this weird/crazy idea which I really didn't understand UNTIL he showed me a preview of it (and I realized that the first BG that I made sucked----LOL).


The idea was to create a video game-like interface which plays along the story of Bakuman where Mashiro and Takagi are currently doing their manga of "Perfect Crime Party". We decided to take on that idea and add a little twist to it.

Breaking down the work, my man Yamaro did all of the arrangement of the elements and the background itself of the whole wall----me, on the other hand, contributed the main character, some vectors, and some ideas as well. TBH, I was kinda shy and embarrassed because whenever I PM him asking if he needs any help, he was like, "Just chillin' here man. All things are cool. (OwO)". LOL. YOU ROCK MAN. \m/

I will then leave the continuing of the description for this wall to my man Yamaro. \m/

A comment, +FAVE, download, comment+FAVE, comment+DL, AND a comment+FAVE+DL would be most appreciated! v(OwO)v

I hope you guys like this wallpaper AS MUCH as we do!

Enjoy~ \m/(OwO)\m/

Perfect Crime Quest Developers' Notes

Once upon a time... static up sounds To be correct it was 7 months, 1 week ago. I got a message from Horseradish and he asked about collab. Why not? And slowly, step by step we were doing THIS.

And what's THIS? This is not simple wallpaper. This is more complicated. So I want you to grab any gamepad or any other device for gaming, then turn off your sense of reality and ENJOY OUR GAME. The game you always dreamed about. Fresh, vibrant, detailed, interesting and PERFECT, so behold - "PERFECT CRIME QUEST", first cooperative action, crime, quest game based on real life.

Don't hesitate, press start button and dive in the insane world of perfect crimes. But before, turn back your sense of reality and read the following: don't get carried away too much, don't forget that you have a real life! Ok, now press start. :3

This game is totally free! But you can support our developers by downloading/commenting/favoring it!

Developers notes:

Many people like games, and like music they can inspire too. So that’s how PCQ was born.

Map was screenshoted by parts: with my screen it took..don't really remember, more than 15 shots.


Google Maps for map. Btw, it the real place, and target is on the main Shueisha Inc. office.
Takeshi Obata - the awesome artist that responsible for a Bakuman.
Alladin who uploaded awesome scan: click!
People from Adobe who made Photoshop.

Yamaro's notes:

I am really glad and satisfied that I made this wallpaper together with awesome waller as Horseradish! And hope someday will make more like this.

And for everyone, enjoy your life and don't do any crimes!

    I learned the location of the Shueisha office for the first time with this wallpaper XD.
    I love your vibrant colors and pop style. Characters are harmonized with the background very well.

  14. Horseradish Apr 30, 2012

    You know what I think about this. :D

    This is such a nice impact to me since I really love and like Bakuman and it's a nice change for the audience to see since Bakuman has ended already----although I wish it didn't yet. (TTTT^TTTT)

    Still, Bakuman will forever be in my favorite mangas of all time. \m/

  15. shyevsa May 01, 2012
