Odd Thomas; Moribito
Ok, first, to get this out of the way-the new show on adult swim on saturdays that i mentioned before is called Moribito (:Gaurdian of the Spirit....?). It's a fantasy anime, primarily. The story line is similar to just any old saga style fantasy series, but is actually pretty good in spite of that. The characters are pretty well ...displayed? (that doesn't sound right, and i'm sorry, i can't think of anything better)Anyway, oddly enough, the series reminds me a lot of Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex. The drawing style, character's and their personalities, and the overall feel of the story is similar. Even tho the two are set in completely different places. Moribito is in some sort of fuedal-era japan with supernatural elements, while GitS:SAC is basically japan in the future, with cyborgs and robots galore. Anyway, i seriously think you should check it out. It's a good anime.
The second thing i was going to talk about was that one of the best sci-fi-thriller-suspense-mystery-fantasy writers, Dean Koontz, has begun producing manga. Well, it's not manga manga, it's ameri-manga, but you get the point. Mr. Koontz has turned 2 of his series, the "Odd Thomas" series and his "Frakenstien" series into a graphic novel format. Queenie Chan is illustrating the "Odd Thomas" series. I don't know who is illustrating "Frakenstien". Anyway, Dean Koontz is a great author, and his graphic novels continue that tradition of awesomeness. If u like Dean Koontz, or u think u might, check out his graphix for sure. They're definetly worth it. Even my not-into-manga-mom read the first "Odd Thomas" and actually liked it and finished it. I have nothing more to say. I'm gonna go now. bye.
