At first I was going to name this topic "Japanese comics", which were a big influence on Elfquest. Then I expanded it to include manga and anime throughout the Far East.

Two important figures in Japanese manga and anime are Osamu Tezuka and Rumiko Takahashi.

I recently got into anime and manga and a few months back I started a blog about my newbie experience watching and reading it.

Here is a Post I wrote about elfquest actually, and it's manga ties.

This is a nice addition to the forum trollbabe.

I don't read much manga but I am very much into anime, up to the point where I have a fair amount of PVC figurines of anime characters Shocked Wish there were some good ElfQuest figurines I could add to my collection, but alas....

btw my favourite shows are Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Fate/Zero, Steins;Gate and Kill la Kill.

I have become quite the full metal alchemist fan, for both series. I'm actually rewatching the 2003 series now and as soon as I'm done I'll be watching brotherhood again. Both excellent. I need to read the manga next.

Thank you, Evie!

Personally I have noticed that distinct cartoon styles evolve in different areas of the world.  In the Mideast, cartoon styles appear fluid, like Arabic calligraphy.  Visiting the UK as a kid, I noticed comic book characters with rounder heads and smaller eyes.  (One of the effects was actions written out like sounds - a character staggering with the word "stagger" next to his feet.)

The Japanese took naturally to cartooning, as it resembles their art tradition which Evie mentions in her blog as influencing Art Nouveau.  Manga and anime characters, at least the good guys, look like the Elfquest elves they influenced.  The big, glossy eyes are a trademark of anime.  An episode of Urusei Yatsura called "Terror of the Girly-eyes Measles" makes fun of this tradition.

Watching the domestic anime scenes, I find myself reversing and re-watching bathroom scenes.  The difference in bathing and plumbing customs is a little confusing.  The bathtub is in a room by itself, with a floor drain.  You scrub yourself off before entering the tub. Toilets (Eastern or Western) and sinks aren't in the same room as the tub.

That's an impressive collection Zinegirl

What I find the most interesting about bathrooms in Japan is that are so many monsters and creatures associated with them. It's really an interesting theme in their folk lore. If a random voice ever asks you if you want red or blue toilet paper, politely decline them or you will die...

This weekend I discovered an anime-elfquest connection (probably other folks already know this, but it was new to me!)

When I'm not complaining about FQ, I enjoy watching competitive figure skating. In honor of the conclusion of the 2017/18 season, I decided to rewatch an anime I really enjoyed from Fall 2016, Yuri on Ice. I love that show, I've probably rewatched it four or five times since it aired. I can go back and forth on the dub or sub depending on mood, but the dub is wild and always makes me laugh, so I decided to go with that.

For the first time, I noticed that the dub director was none other than Sonny Strait! I'll admit that overall, I'm not wild about what Sonny did in FQ, but if part of the problem was that his time was taken up working on Yuri on Ice, one of my favorite media properties from the last few years, then I'm fine with whatever he did for EQ, lol!

[And just as an aside, I think Yuri on Ice was a beautiful example of how to handle a same-sex relationship in a way that was respectful and very natural in the larger context of the characters' lives (in contrast to, say, Dart and Mender in FQ, where their romantic relationship felt very forced and yet shallow and disconnected from the rest of the story.) The ice skating is front-and-center in Yuri on Ice, and as a fan of the sport, that was so much fun to watch. All the good character stuff was icing on top.]

I just finished watching Wolf's Rain. For anyone liking wolves and fantasy themes it's a very good watch Smile

Has anyone else seen "Star Blazers", animated or live-action? The original Japanese series title translates to "Space Cruiser Yamato."

Let's do a collection update again:
Spoiler:
 
On the top rows we have:
Left: (Part of) my Fullmetal Alchemist collection; Roy Mustang & Edward Elric and 10 characters as chibis. I have more FMA figures, but they're at my mom's house.
Right: Good Smile Company Sabers (Fate/Stay Night)

Shelf below that:
Left: two figures of Saber Alter, 1 figure of Okita Souji, 2 other figures of Saber. All from Fate/whatever
Right: Saber en Rin Tohsaka from the Type-Moon Racing set, and Hunter.

Below that:
Left: Souji Okita again and Hatsune Miku!
Right: Archer & Rin (Fate/Stay Night) and in the middle we have Matoi Ryuuko and Satsuki Kiryuin (Kill la Kill). Got the latter for a very good price on a local convention.

Finally for the bottom row:
Left: Mikasa, Levi, Eren from Attack on Titan
Right: My Pokémon Collection! With Red, Green/Gary, Serena and Selene/Moon from the games.

These are only the figures in my student room, I have more stuff at my mom's house (really need more closets to put them in)
