R.I.P OneManga – Lauren’s Comic

This comic was inspired by something that happened to me recently which involves the closure of the “Onemanga” website which was a free manga scanning website where anyone could go to read their desired comics (mangas).  Unfortunately due to copyright laws this practice could not continue and now for netziens and otakus all over the world there is panic as they struggle to satisfy their hunger for manga with the decreasing number of “free-scanning” manga websites available to the general public.

Bambi the White Robot

This format is way too familiar to me. I was tempted to start on a jaunt about the general social collapse of Japan as all their idols implode upon themselves. Anyways, a colleague (high school classmate) who gets me press passes wrote this one on his own time, and his editor imploded too. It’s unusually poignant, for him.

A.O. Scott’s obituary of the anime artist Satoshi Kon

Satoshi Kon was one of the foremost contemporary artists in anime, and you can view a trailer gallery as well as read A.O. Scott’s beautiful prose in the same place. It’s sad to think that such a powerful artist is gone at such an early age. Have you ever seen any of Kon’s films? If so, what did you think? Which film would you recommend a neophyte seeing first?
