Simply awesome.

Before i get to the actual critique, i want to say that you have progressed a lot in your art and i hope that this "Crynime" will come out.

So onto the actual review. First looks are amazing, it definitely has a great impact on the viewer. The colors also tend to fit all the characters and the contrasts of the other colors. All the people look accurately drawn. I see almost nothing wrong with this image. But there are things that bother me about this image. The poster appears a bit blurry which, for me, doesn't fit this image. Another thing is the massive title in the middle of the image, perhaps use a smaller font and maybe leave a larger spacing between them, example:

Another thing, is that you could fill out more of the space on the actual image, not leave a lot of it blank.

However all in all, this is a great piece of art, looking forward to the anime.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
79 out of 83 deviants thought this was fair.

I like the lighting effects you have in this image, from the lighter hue in the center of the image to the off-light blue on the top right. I feel as though you could push the darkest darks on some of the characters than more of the background, though. The characters are lovely and well-drawn with lots of character, though I get the feeling that none of them are really connected in this picture because they stand out so vividly in the image. This could be fixed, if you choose to, by adjusting the hue of some of the characters (I don't know what program you use, but to put an overlay and adding effects of blue, or whatever colour you see fits best to the image would help tie everything in.

You also have a couple areas of confusion, where the 'N' in CRYNIME is touching the center girls ear, and on the top, Cry's hand is being slightly overlapped by another characters head.

As others have commented, the title in the center of the image doesn't do the poster justice. I believe that the image would be much better if you used a much crisper text and had it cover a wider surface.
if you look at the way things are lined, you can look at the entire shape of your characters. On the top is the main character, his head and shoulders give the illusion of a triangle being formed - as if he's all encompassing. Which is a good effect you've pulled off.
On the bottom is a smaller crew, I'm not sure how important they are. From the standpoint of someone who has just stumbled upon your artwork, they all strike me as extremely interesting characters, much more thought out than the four characters above who... look more important because of their size and positioning.
As well as these characters seeming less important to the story, the title being placed in such a peculiar place while destroying the umbrella effect earlier stated gives the image a sort of bottle neck feeling. The title is tightening around the image and focusing all the attention on it, rather than the rest of this beautiful image.

Things to focus on for sure, I would think...
Tying everything together to balance the image, which includes the general hue (be it minimal or not), darkness and light values (Some sharp whites instead of the perfectly white weapons you have)
If you wanted to go more technical into the sphere of light Cry is creating, you could create a back-lit effect on all the characters.

Of course, how you fix this is up to you. I'm very happy to have seen your art as it inspires me to try harder too. I wish you the best of luck in continuing your art ^^

Either they ARE his friends, or maybe they're just random fans that want to be on a Cry poster that will hang in someones room. 
Who knows?

Because Cry has such an interesting character design and well, character, he'd be an amazing protagonist for an anime.
I mean, I don't see anime where the protagonist wears a mask to hide his identity and has alter egos that all have different masks, so yea
Amazing work as always Kiwa <3 It's awesome !
