People have already said their piece about how ridiculous and worthlessly perplexing this anime was. I, myself won’t say much, but I will say this I regret recognizing the art from Another (2012), the animation. As you can see on my Predictions table, I was expecting blood, betrayal, and borderline violent stupidity. Unfortunately, I was given only one of those (take a guess). I wish I could at least appreciate the story being different from what I was hoping for, but nope, not even that is possible. The concept of a village manifesting your dark past for you to overcome is unique – somewhat played out – but unique. The problem with this story is far too many unanswered questions and of the explanations we do get, they are just to fickle and to complicated. It is not that Mayoiga is hard to understand, it’s just that it plays out the scenario of trying to open a pickle jar with Tom & Jerry-like trap.
If you pledge to be an Otaku, you got to have favorites outside of the mainstream to right? I seriously suggest you check these out (Mangareader is best resource)! Once in a while I’ll go into more detail about my favorites (both story by story & by genre). For now, I’m just putting this image as a quick reference back to my main tastes.
These are a few of my favorite makeshift cosplay outfits. If you ever see my Facebook page you’ll learn I’m into the ancient arts of Penny Pinching, Short Notice Styling, and (somewhat) Contemporary Creativity.
The image above is linked to my budding portfolio I use for work, internships and to help keep track of my own hard work. It’s made of research papers and projects analyzing different parts of the anime & manga industries, as well as creative projects like my fiction writings, photography, film editing & home made comic Animal Friends.
Managing this project was a ton of fun for me and I got to find out a lot about the manga industry from the 1990s to the early 2000s. Since manga authorship can be greatly entangled with manga editorship, I hope to make another website focusing more on the amount/percentage of work editors devote to a manga.
It has been a while since really tapped into Windows MovieMaker . . . and man is the thing full of glitches. Its high-time I upgrade to a better video-editing program thanks to all the audio cuts i just could not get rid of (Thanks MM for the hours of literal angry vein popping).
Anywho~ the following video is something I organized for a class Project in Advanced Composition.
Purpose: To discuss the history manga censorship in Japan, what content some American audiences would prefer to have censored and the impact of the United Nations ban of child pornographic content on the manga community.
