IS THIS FOR REAL!! Another manga adaption of Genji Monogatari. But this time the art’s by… MIYAGI TOOKO!!! *runs around like a mad woman.*
Lets zoom in and look at it again.
Yeap, Miyagi Tooko all right. I know I’m definitely going to get the book once it comes out, even thought I still don’t know how different will it be from Murakami’s original… I seriously need manga therapy now!
Since we’re on the topic of Asuka, there’s a new title by Kisaragi Hirotaka-sensei called Seiyuu Ichinensei (声優一年生). There’s supposedly only two chapters (two-shots) about voice actors. Sensei’s style’s so different from the rest of his works. Just compared the drawing in this title and Brother x Brother. I don’t know whether sensei’s been using digital medium for his manga, but it’s very apparent in Seiyuu Ichinensei. Frankly, I prefer his old style more.
Not only that, the drawing’s a little different too, looks like someone used photoshop’s pen tool to ink the manga… I couldn’t believe it was him when I looked at the colour pages. If you want, you can read the preview on Asuka’s website.
Well, until I saw an ossan character in this page that screams sensei’s character design to me!
