Too odd for FB..and I can't fucking stand instagram.
There’s a reason Hi-Fructose keeps tabs on Tokyo artist Shohei (aka Hakuchi) Otomo(featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20). The only son of great manga artist Katsuhiro Otomo, the acclaimed writer and director of the anime cult classic Akira, Hakuchi carries on his father’s legacy with his own graphic illustrations that combine Japanese iconography with a dark, retro-punk edge and a healthy dose of sardonic humor.

“I said, ‘Do I have any questions? Of course, I have questions! Marvel’s not going to let me read the script, I have no f—ing idea of what I’m doing, I don’t know this character, I don’t have any goddamn sides. Do I have any questions? How long do you have?’ And James was like, ‘That’s what Peter Quill would say.’”
"Sadly, early reports that one of the world’s most beloved animation studios, Hayao Miyazaki’s legendary Studio Ghibli, might shut its doors and stop making films, are true. A news report translation of Studio Ghibli general manager and Toshio Suzuki’s TV announcement of the closure has been posted on the Studio Ghibli blog. Suzuki says the Studio Ghibli animation production department will be dismantled. (TOH! ranked the Top Ten Studio Ghibli films here.)
Ghibli’s newest film, “When Marnie Was There,” opened in Japan on July 19. Whispers of the studio’s closing have circulated since last year, when powerhouse writer-director Miyazaki (of “Princess Mononoke” and “Spirited Away” fame) announced he was retiring and Ghibli producer/co-founder Suzuki stepped down from producing and became the studio’s general manager instead.
So Studio Ghibli will now focus on not making new films but rather on managing its copyrights and trademarks and generating revenue from its library of previous creations. In 2010, Miyazaki acknowledged that there was a potential future for the studio in such a form, telling Cut Magazine, “Ghibli should be able to continue with about five staff members as a copyright management company even if we smash the studio. So, Ghibli can say ‘We stop film production. Goodbye.’ I do not have to be.”
The end of an era :-(
