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.

    Akko as a fish ended up looking somewhat like the Dappya Monster (the fish man in the reverse water-filled scuba helmet) in URUSEI YATSURA.

    Sucy’s got the best design but I like Lotte best for the simple reason that she’s voiced by Fumiko Orikasa who played Miu Matsuoka on ICHIGO MASHIMARO (my avatar anime).

    Y’know, I understand why the second PATLABOR movie is the one that gets praised as an artistic triumph, but I prefer the first PATLABOR film because it’s actually somewhat “fun”. Although I easily prefer the 2nd OVA series to any of the movies (or the TV series or the first OVA series; as for more recent PATLABOR-related productions, I just haven’t seen them). Most of my list would be series-based films, with URUSEI YATSURA: BEAUTIFUL DREAMER being my top 20th century anime film, and THE …
