Shangri-La DVD Disaster

shangrila-range-murata-cover-2-large.jpg

Shangri-La, an anime whose DVDs sold so badly that the release of volume 7 and onwards was abruptly canceled, has recently attracted even more opprobrium for the bizarre happenings on its covers; the first four start off well enough, probably better than the anime deserves in the eyes of many:

robot super color comic

Cover of robot 9

This is Robot magazine, a beautiful, large format, full colour manga magazine/serial artbook under the direction of Range Murata (村田蓮爾; also a contributor), who may be familiar to you as the character designer of the anime Last Exile (highly recommended), amongst others. Yoshitoshi Abe (安倍吉俊) (involved in various capacities with Serial Experiments Lain (a favourite), Texhnolyze (another favourite), Haibane Renmei, NieA_7, etc) is also regularly featured. It is pricey and slim compared to the more mainstream phonebook sized manga compilations, but the quality of art included is second to none. Perhaps the cover price is a small price to pay for supporting these artists? Read the rest of this entry »
