@dd11: I totally loved the witty humour and the unique art style. It'd be great if more anime took the risk of attempting a new formula and try out something new.



A new anime starting next month with art production by the artist who does the cover-art for Asian Kung Fu Generation: Yojo-Han Shinwa Taikei [youtube trailer - 1min 24sec]


Spring 2010 Anime list


Any on that list you're looking forward to?
I'm keen to see the next OVA for Darker than Black 2. Yojo-han could also be interesting.

^^ oh man, i've always wondered who did the artwork for the Ajikan albums. the style is just awesome. btw, the main character in that film, in a way, kinda looks like masafumi. hehe (it might just be me..)
anyway, it looks pretty interesting.

the manga that i'm reading lately is called "Dogs" by Shirow Miwa. and so far, i'm lovin' it. x)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogs_/_Bullets_&_Carnage

the art work can be pretty graphic/gory, but still, i think it's very well laid out. what will get you though, if you happen to come across this manga, is the story. it pretty much revolves around 4 charachters, but it really sucks you in and you start to develop a deep understanding about each of the characters lifestyles and individual stories, and how they will tie in with eachother. there's just a certain connection that you kinda feel for them as well.

High school of the Dead http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI7BPRafgPo

Verdict: Way too much fan service... It gets so stupidly ridiculous to the point where in one scene a girl is being devoured by zombies then the camera focuses up the skirt. Any potential for a half decent zombie anime gets spoiled by unecessary clevage and jiggling breasts.



UPDATE

QUOTE
Satoshi Kon, one of the truly brilliant Japanese filmmakers, passed away yesterday due to pancreatic cancer. He was 46 years old.

While still in college, he made his debut as a manga artist. Upon graduation, he worked as an assistant for Akira author Katsuhiro Otomo.

He went on to create and direct some of the most impressive and striking anime of the last two decades.Kon was working on a new film called The Dream Machine, which was slated for next year.

On August 23, the last tweet was posted on Kon's Twitter site. It reads: "I might be old-fashioned, or maybe it's just that I still admire the old values."


I suggest you read his final diary entry (translated on Japanator.com).

Princess Jellyfish
http://www4.funimation.com/video/?page=show&b=340

Just finished watching the last episode of Princess Jellyfish and I hope there's more! Some might see it as a "girl's anime" but it's really charming and light. Indeed, it's an anime worth of having Chatmonchy as its OP music! laugh.gif

Anyone else watching Kids on the Slope/Sakamichi no Apollon?
It's by Production IG so the animation and story is excellent plus the story revolves around jazz music. I can't recommend this enough regardelss of wether you have an interest in music or not this is one of the best anime this year!
