Roman Holiday IN SPAAAAACE (But also mostly on Earth)



1992 Macross' Japanese distributors Big West wanted to release a sequel series to the popular Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, but the creators at Studio Nue were not interested at that time. So Big West went ahead with their own series (retaining only character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto) Macross II Lovers Again, based the movie version of Macross.


It also borrowed a lot from Roman Holiday, which I will be focusing on with these scans.

(note for page counts each issue in US comic format was 31, or 32 pages long there are also two clips from Roman Holiday amounting to about 7 minutes of it's 2 hr run time, and the intro and second closing theme of Macross II)

Owari no Seraph it was called by fans "Attack on titan with vampires".
Actually, Yuu is even more obsessed than Eren. He can be really vexing. I find this manga pretty compelling, but the characters are a sore spot...

"It originally was inspired by a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, where brothers combat monsters. Then, I tried to make the story flip several times, and settled down into a simple structure of demons versus an exorcist." - Kazue Kato


This is a post that's been a long time coming, so I hope you enjoy this look at the first chapter of Blue Exorcist.

Goodnight Punpun Vol. 1: Family Life & God

goodnightpunpunvol1cover

"When I did Oyasumi Punpun, I was making a manga about human psychology, which I could use to explore myself on a mental level by projecting my psyche into the story. Using manga as a form of expression, I decided on this kind of scrawled bird as a code that would allow me to experiment with the environment and let readers identify with him." - Inio Asano


Warning for domestic abuse?
