You mean like those pulp stories they made back then? Urasawa’s style reminds me of how Sidney Sheldon’s potboilers, except the former’s works have a little more depth in them.

Lol Lunge was my favorite character in Monster, but he is pretty annoying considering he’s supposed to be a super-smart detective. I think it can be justified though, since Johan pulling the strings makes the series of events hard to assess...? I don’t really know, it’s been a year since I read it.

Hey, Kindle-kun! I see you’ve been reading Monster, how are you enjoying it?

I mean, I do know that, but I've strayed away from shounen a long time ago xD

And I've always wanted to get into some Iyashikei, maybe I'll like it, maybe not, who knows.

Okay, I'll do that. I have a dictionary app here in my laptop but I'm too lazy sometimes to check out the word's meaning, lol. That's what I notice in some of my classmate's works. They find the synonym, make it flowery or deep, but they overdo it. I try not to do it though.

I should probably get into Iyashikei if I want to join you and the other Filipino around here, but I'm daunted

I'm choosing between an anime/manga blog or a blog to post my thoughts (from rants to everything, idk what it's called).

That's some really helpful advice. Thank you very much ^^ I guess I'll start working on my writing and vocabulary first. I'm already reading a lot and that helps me widen my vocab but the problem is, I'm familiar with the words but I can't remember their meaning (I have a bad memory). So I'm planning on having a 'word of the day' then use that 'word' in at least 5 sentences each day. I gotta buy a ntbk for it. Is that a good place to start? And I'm thinking of having a little blog here in MAL (I'll make some entries private tho).

Thanks again for taking the time to reply despite you being busy ^^

I saw your blog. Actually, I'm planning on making a blog (that's for when I got the time), any tips?

Hello! thanks for the fr, how you doing :)

Yahalo (just wanted to try saying it, lol)

How are you doin'?

Maybe it’s how traveling brings up these fleeting moments. Either way, I agree that it fits in the settings of his works. I like that his motorcycles also look softly and roundly drawn. I barely see any edges in most of Ashinano’s works, now that I think about it.

That’s a good point, but I also find it interesting how Japanese works have such a genre usually affiliated with them. Iyashikei, mono no aware and slice-of-life itself are elements that are mostly only found in those works. I’d love to read more about this side of Japanese culture, though I admit I’m still a bit uneducated since most of my knowledge extends as far as it is related to anime and manga.

Thanks. I’ve read that this short is animated entirely with the technique shanshui which uses only a brush and ink to depict landscapes.

Thanks for accepting my FR.

Is there any implication as to why Ashinano usually has his characters always ride motorcycles? I understand that it’s for exposition of the scenery and it sort-of acts as a medium for his minimalistic effects, but is there any other meaning to it?

I’m not much knowledgeable about Zen either, but I like this idea. I don’t have much context on his works aside from a few historical overviews about YKK being an answer to the idea back in the 90s about an impending apocalypse.

Since you brought up stuff about Zen, mind if I recommend you something? Shanshui Qing (or Feeling From Mountain and Water) is a 15-minute short film that emphasizes the harmony of man, nature, and the universe, and I kept remembering this throughout our discussion. I think you might like it.

Hmm, I agree, but the way Suu-chan has these five-minute vignettes of supernatural events is something I can reflect on a bit, just without the supernatural part. Curiosity on certain things can lead to exploration of the unexplained, and it's a strong human trait that I really admire and something I can relate to.

Kotonoba and YKK take different approaches in showing moments of daily life like you inferred, with YKK being focused more on a post-apocalyptic world through Alpha's lens while Kotonoba is more on the sometimes-unexplained stuff we find wondrous from little things.
TeKSMeLater Feb 16, 9:37 PM
I’m actually very conflicted right now tbh, since Suu from Kotonoba Drive is just as adorable :3
