Manga UKJeremy Graves is joined by Jerome Mazandarani and Andrew Hewson for our 23rd podcast, featuring cover woes, delayed shows, and several uses of the word Slash.

Art Ludique: Studio Ghibli Layout Design

Andrew Osmond rend compte d'une exposition dans un musée à Paris
If you’re a Ghibli fan in Paris in the next few weeks, then you owe it to yourself to visit the Art Ludique Museum and take in one of the most amazingly comprehensive exhibitions mounted on the studio. Filling the building, the exhibition consists of 1,300 layout drawings from the studio’s three-decade history; from 1984’s Nausicaa through to 2014’s When Marnie was There, plus a section on Ghibli’s prehistory.
Yesterday, the announcement video for the Magi: Sinbad no Bouken (Magi: Adventure of Sinbad) anime began streaming. The anime series will be based on the manga of the same name, which is set 30 years prior to the main series, and depicts the early years of the fan-favourite, Sinbad.


Hugh David calls Czechmate on the endgame
"The action scenes remain superlative, designed and executed in a way Western live-action directors would do well to study. The way character moments are woven within elevates them above mere technical exercises. The Prague shoot-out and Tokyo car chase are the sort of gems that prove that anime can still trump live-action in the same creative arenas when it wants to."
With the release of Danganronpa: The Animation just under a week away, we thought we'd share with you our trip to last year's Danganronpa event in Ikebukuro.

Princess Mononoke

Andrew Osmond celebrates Miyazaki’s green movie on Blu-ray
In Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke, the hero is a warrior youth in a mythical, medieval “Japan” not yet a nation; rather it’s a fantasy bordering on Middle-Earth and the Wild West.
