Comment on “Why Are Seiyuu Such Great Artists As Well?” by Sasazuka:

Another thought about Marina Inoue: from what’s posted here, I think she might be a better artist than Coharu Sakuraba, MINAMI-KE’s mangaka, though I admit that may not necessarily be fair, since all I’m seeing from her is single pages of manga at most. I dunno if she can churn out so many pages of art a month like a professional mangaka like Coharu Sakuraba can. It’s one thing to make one nice drawing of a girl, it’s another thing entirely to make 50 different drawings of the same girl in different poses and with different expressions for a single manga chapter.

    So, basically, Marina Inoue, the voice of Kana Minami, should also have done key animation for seasons 2 and 3 of MINAMI-KE. It’d have easily looked better than what Studio Asread’s B team could draw.

  • Kuma Miko Cooks Up More Cuteness:
    Doesn’t it seem more and more like the real story of KUMAMIKO is “village elders want to exploit Machi’s cuteness to promote tourism” (because there’s absolutely nothing else exceptional about Kumade village that might bring in the tourists other than the talking bears)?

    Sankaku just “censored” Machi blowing into that bamboo pipe as a joke, check the actual still image screencaps and even the Omake gifs for the uncensored version. https://images.sankakucomplex.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/KumaMiko-Episode7-2.jpg https://images.sankakucomplex.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/KumaMiko-Episode7-Omake-4.gif

    Correction: it’s Olympus, not Nikon, that has the “Tough” brand for its durable & waterproof cameras.

    https://images.sankakucomplex.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/KumaMiko-Episode7-61.jpg That looks like a 1990s digital camera, although I suppose it could be like one of those Nikon “Tough” cameras that forgo basic features like a zoom lens in order to be about as indestructible as a digital camera can possibly be. In other words, perfect for a klutz like Machi.

  • Top 20 Anime Mothers:
    I know it’s too early for her to make any lists, but Nana Kuramoto from FLYING WITCH is an excellent addition to the anime mother pantheon. While lot of anime moms would be oblivious to or shocked by magical goings-on, Nana is not only unperterbed by it and accepting of it, she seems to have some degree of familiarity with it, seemingly having many witches in her extended family.
