Holy Sad Movie!
If you guys ever come across the anime movie called 'Grave of the Fireflies,' I highly recommend picking it up. It's by the same people who did 'Spirited Away' and 'Princess Mononoke' and it's fantastic. It's incredibly sad though but it has wonderful characters and it's beautifully drawn.
I picked up my 1st mangas!! I've never owned any mangas and finally while in Barnes & Noble, I wandered over to the manga section and began just browsing around. I picked up 'Rurouni Kenshin' since I knew that was a popular anime, 'Angel Sanctuary' which I had seen the anime of but the series was discontinued, and 'Immortal Rain' which I had never heard of before.
Angel Sanctuary...wow! The art is INCREDIBLE!! The story line is complexed and extremely interesting and I really am liking the characters. Once you get past the whole incest part and learn to appreciate their love regardless, it's an amazing manga!
Rurouni Kenshin was very addicting. The art itself was...ok. Not nearly as well drawn as Angel Sanctuary but I know it's a different style. The main character Kenshin is definitely a strong character that draws me to him. Well, that and I LOVE how his eyes are drawn^_^
Immortal Rain...I love Love LOVE the way it is drawn. The characters are so wonderfully done and every expression and movement really draws in your eye. It's like you can feel every emotion within 1 expression! I LOVE the main character Rain...I'm a sucker for interesting colored eyes...his are lavender. Anywho, there seems to be some romance slowly budding within the story and it has lots of funny parts too!
Well, I'm off to try and finish up my drawing! *Hint* It's a drawing that I said I was going to do a LONG time ago....
