Now available: the English version of the first chapter of ICHIEFU by Kazuto Tatsuta, a first-person account of the dangerous clean-up work happening now at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant in Japan.
In exhaustive detail, the narrator explains the protocol and preparations required to enter this highly radioactive zone, and shows us glimpses of what it’s like beyond the boundaries where few are allowed to enter.

Favourite animators: Shinya Ohira (大平晋也)
- Strongly influenced by early Disney, Ohira is a living contradiction: a full animator in a country of limited animation. He is the most iconoclastic incarnation of the new realism in anime, creating a gritty, sensual realism as opposed to the clean and restrained realism of Omohide Poroporo or Jin-Roh.
- Ohira focuses on creating fluid and realistic movement full of superfluous action to the point of relegating shape and character design to jagged, wildly undulating lines. (anipages)

The day I cried over a burger.
I ♥ sentaï villainesses.
I’ll probably make some prints of those illustrations. Tell me if you’re interested.
A Space Godzilla would have been the most amazing film ever made.
What is this? Concept art? Looks interesting.
These are by Katsuhiro Otomo (writer/illustrator of Akira), published in a 1979 issue of Japan’s version of Starlog. In it (to quote Toho Kingdom user Tamura) “Godzilla’s corpse washes ashore, followed by 2001-style head trips with Godzilla’s soul traversing the cosmos, his encounters with an alien entity, a final battle with a monster called Gamora, and Godzilla’s final evolution into infinity.”
It was, at the very least, proposed as a movie (using stop-motion for the kaiju), but I don’t know much beyond that.
My submission for Ghibli Jam
(I hope this is ok since its not technically studio Ghibli its a Miyazki film though!)
