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.

  • XXXtreme Ghostbusters “Shows Why to be Afraid of Ghosts”:
    I clicked on the link on my Twitter feed because, considering it’s Sankaku Complex, I thought I would be seeing screenshots from a live-action JAV Ghostbusters 2016 parody. This is… not what I expected. Although I will give it points for replicating the overall 1990s syndicated TV animation look pretty much perfectly. Will this animation also be banned in China for depiction of ghosts like GHOSTBUSTERS 2016?

  • Top 10 Twintailed Anime Girls:
    I almost listed “RuriRuri” myself but I kinda wanted to limit myself to anime I’ve seen within the past 15 years. I don’t think I’ve watched any NADESICO except for the movie since the turn of the century.

  • Top 10 Twintailed Anime Girls:
    Poor Renge Miyauchi from NON NON BIYORI is sad that she got ignored. As sad as she was when Honoka went back to Tokyo. As sad as she was when “Flatty-san” died. I’m also fan of Kana Minami from MINAMI-KE, Sasami/Pretty Sammy from the TENCHI MUYO multiverse, Miu Matsuoka from ICHIGO MASHIMARO (obviously), and, more recently, Chinatsu Kuramoto from FLYING WITCH and Machi Amayadori from KUMAMIKO: GIRL MEETS BEAR if over-the-shoulder twintails count (although some official KUMAMIKO anime magazine …

  • Top 10 Video Games That Deserve An Anime:
    I dunno if KINGDOM HEARTS would be a good fit for anime, what with all the Disney content, though I suppose Disney did have that Japanese branch that did the grunt work for the 1980s/1990s afterschool syndicated TV cartoons like DUCK TALES, RESCUE RANGERS, and BONKERS. Or, more precisely, farmed out that grunt work to independent Japanese anime studios like TMS. LEGEND OF ZELDA is the all-time perennial top (or near top) choice on these lists but I have a feeling it would be one of those …

  • Top 10 Sega Games, Revivals & Characters:
    I have 2006 on PS2 but I also bought OUTRUN 2 for XBox, which I had to play on my 360 because I didn’t have an original XBox but there’s a fatally-annoying audio glitch when playing it on XBox 360, once you get the screeching tire noise looping it never stops, even if you start a new game. I eventually got an original XBox from a Value Village thrift store for ~$10 although I later found out that one reason it was such a low price is that it has a tendency to “freeze”. So, basically, if I want …
