Serving as the whimsical premise behind FUNimation's and Studio Deen's 2011 supernatural series, Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? (lit. Is this a Zombie?), the anime tells the tale of a zombie high school student, by the name of Ayumu Aikawa, whom suddenly finds himself in the midst of unusual circumstances after he is mysterious murdered by a serial killer. He is revived by the deadpan necromancer Eucliwood Hellscythe who moves in with him which is followed by a series of happenstances that threaten to interrupt Ayumu's "normal" life.

Art Director Yusuke Naora and Producer Yoshinori Kitase were present at the opening of THE ART OF FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 charity exhibition held at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California on March 16, 2014.

Naora did a special live digital painting of Yuna and Tidus from the game which you can view below.

Along with the painting, other items are also available including signed concept art pieces, signed giclee prints, and original sketches by some of the production team such as Character Designer Tetsuya Nomura.

Proceeds for the auctions will go towards the Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. You have until March 26, 2014 at 11PM PDT to bid.
With a lot of Final Fantasy X fans out there, bidding are expected to be fierce.
