Murata Range Fan Club

Renji "Range" Murata is an experienced doujinshi and professionally published artist whose work has also been featured in a variety of magazines, video games, and anime series. His style is immediately recognizable by his characters’ frequently elaborate clothing and their soft and colorfully emotional appearance. Murata also designs a number of "fa" ["fashion and anime"] clothing designs and accessories which are sold through GoFa.

Or simply, Range Murata was the major force behind the concept, designs and mechanics of Last Exile. That alone is enough to make him a winner, but he has also other great works to his name. Remember Blue Submarine 6? (do you?) Character designs are by him too.

He was also voted "Best Artist of the Year" in the 2006 Seiun Award.

This might look familiar to some people around here:

Last Exile's new series & the novel Cop Craft: Dragnet Mirage Reloaded need to be added to the relations lists.

While shopping at Book-Off on Friday I came across a Japanese omnibus volume of manga short stories which piqued my interest. It featured cover art by Murata. Unfortunately, that was his only contribution. So, I left it on the shelf. :P

New Last Exile

My body is ready.

So, basically, that 2011 GONZO anime is the new Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam. Just in case anyone hadn't already figured it out.

YES. I would take pictures, but I feel like that would be redundant, as we all already know how amazing his art is. Also, that would be spoilers for people who haven't bought it yet.

Ah....Obviously Pasta you've received your copy of it. (^_^)

If you guys haven't checked out Prismtone yet, I highly advise that you all find yourselves a copy now! It's an absolutely amazing collection of all his major anime design work.

Lovin' every page.
