Len'en anniversaries are celebrated every year on the 11th of November, as it is the date the Len'en Project was born with the completion (though not release) of the full versions of Evanescent Existence and Earthen Miraculous Sword in the year 2013.[1] Usually during this time of the year, JynX will post an illustration on pixiv and thank the Len'en fans for all their support towards the project. So far, they've created four illustrations, along with a transcript of a conversation amongst some of the Len'en's characters.

The "Len'en Perfect Year" refers to the entire period between the 10th and 11th annviersaries, during which a major announcement would be made around every 3 months:

  • November 2023: 10th Anniversary Celebration
  • March 2024: ????? (Signified by a book symbol.)
  • May 2024: ????? (Signified by a CD symbol.)
  • August 2024: ????? (Signified by a symbol made up of all the game title logos superimposed.)
  • November 2024: 11th Anniversary Celebration

The "Len'en Drawing Party" (連縁お絵描き大会) was an event where fans were able to contribute fanart onto a collaborative canvas to create one giant piece of fanart, hosted on MagicalDraw. Due to how popular the event was, one canvas was not enough for everyone to participate, prompting JynX to open up 2 more "party venues". (Links to venues one, two and three.)

The day after the Len'en Super Week, Kanae held an "after-party stream", where he looked back on all the anniversary events and thanked the fans for participating in them.

It's Len'en second anniversary.

In celebration, I managed to create a Halloween ending-like image of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle.
The New Emperor Team tries to profit by selling Halloween candy at the event.
In celebration of Halloween and Len'en's second anniversary, I included both Pocky and Pretz here.

It would be nice to finish the new work as soon as possible (other people affairs).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. The three of them being Rei, Zelo and Lin, who is in the trash can.
