Where the hell do you find such valuable documentaries... I'm downloading this one while I can, the Takehiko Inoue one got taken off of youtube the other day.

No wonder I couldn't find it!

I'm surprised too. Like I said I was looking for the Takehiko Inoue one... I wanted to rewatch it but found this one. You should watch it. I saw something very interesting that you'd agree with.

Amazing... Naoki Urasawa is like a character straight out of a manga, a really really cool one at that.

"If the beginning flows, everything moves..." Blew my freakin' mind. That's definitely some words to hold on to.

Takehiko Inoue and now this guy, the more I learn about manga artists the more I want to become one. They put their entire being into what they do, I envy that more than anything. I've been so superficial about almost everything I do, I want to really "pour my blood into the ink" as the old rule goes. Maybe then I'll finally feel satisfied with my work.

Like with the Inoue interview, I really want to read his manga now, more specifically Monster and 20th century boys. I read a few chapters into them some time back (I think during exams) and I remember how intrigued I was. Definitely need to read some more.

EDIT: going to listen to some Bob Dylan, too :P

i'm personally not into his artstyle, his stories are unique, but at the same time heavily predictable.

As time goes by, he still sticks with the older 90s style.

I really like older artstyles, a lot was lost in the digital age of today.

i dont think theres much from the digital age.....unless you look at masamune shirows.

the artstyle i'm talking about is more on design more than graphics.

I meant that when things became more digital there was a lot lost. But a lot was gained to, I guess.

I had the same reaction to the determination thing, but I can't lie about my current self. It'll take some time to get into that. The eastern philosophy on working hard is something else. And you have to be a bit crazy. Man, the shoulder dislocation thing seriously. I finished Monster, 20th Century Boys and Pluto. I tried Billy Bat but loathed it when even Jesus was apparently part of the conspirancy.

I'm more intruiged by his story telling and characterisation, and large scope of the worlds than the art. It's great art, but not quite my cup of tea. I like the backgrounds and the like but the faces... For some reasons the noses put me off haha. I dunno.

But he's amazing. And he mentioned Tezuka's The Pheonix as the absolute mountain that he wanted to climb. This confirms how legendary that manga is. I'm going to read it as soon as possible.

That's for sure. Not a day goes by without me going through a struggle against myself.

I'll admit I think his work isn't aesthetically pleasing, but I like it for some reason haha. I guess it's because it's unique, and I'll take unique art over something that looks good but you see a lot of.

Don't go into it expecting the best thing (though I had that impression after reading Karma :P), just read it for what it is. Too many times have I gone into something expecting it to be amazing but instead I spent too much time anticipating greatness rather than just getting absorbed by the story.

I dont think much was lost...to this day, many real authors draw with dip pens and work extensively. its not all digital either way. you're point was still in responce to mine, so whether you clarified or not, you still missed the point i was saying.

What I'm saying is that a lot has changed in the last few decades, with everything, not just manga. It's changed the way things are perceived and that has effected manga some bit. But looking back now I see what you meant.

i know what you meant. You don't have to clarify every time i respond. the problem is you still using it against my opinion..now that you see what i meant, it doesn't prove any different. Naoki Urasawa's style tends to be too similar to 90s/80s manga for my taste...he's far too old fashion (in design). And nothing was lost in manga when more technology came in. Manga since the early days have had alot of gain.
