| I have a newfound respect for Mangaka's and the turmoil they endure for their art
I have been a fan of Manga for close to 20 years, and I have always had a great respect for the medium. There are so many series and artists that I love and that have helped inspire my own art style, from Kishiro Yukito to CLAMP, and I love the incredible variety that the medium provides for every type of reader imaginable. As a fan, I have never questioned the amount of effort it takes to be a Mangaka, and I actually took for granted how a single person could be responsible for a story, script, layout, art and colors. I mean, how do these people do it week after week, month after month, year after year for little to no real pay until you make it "big"? That's essentially what this movie aims to achieve; to create a window to the blood, sweat and tears of an artistic savant, and how much they love their craft to even sacrifice their own health and well-being. The film was wonderfully acted, directed, and the SFX was very beautifully implement. All of the technical details are top notch. But it's the message behind the film that is most important; do what you love simply because you love it. If you love what you do, things will ultimately fall into place. Creating Manga takes tremendous effort and talent, and only the Japanese are capable of focusing their efforts to create something so cohesive and indicative of the society. The film is wonderful and any fan of Manga and Japan will love everything about it. Fascinating is an understatement.
