Nascono legami che vanno al di là del contatto fisico, della vicinanza e della vista. Percorrono strade invisibili, fino ad arrivare nella testa. Si diramano in tante viuzze chiamate: comprensione, ascolto, telepatia, empatia, appartenenza. Coinvolgono talmente tanto da riuscire ad appagare ogni mancanza tangibile.

Fans of Kimagure Orange Road, some sad news: Izumi Matsumoto seems to not be doing so well lately, according to a recent update on the Kimagure Orange Road KS:

‘We got an update just today, and it seems like his condition has been growing worse, and he has recently been experiencing seizures regularly. We ask that you have him in your prayers, and if you would like, you can send us a postcard with your condolences that we will deliver to him. Our CEO will be travelling to Japan in early December, so please send us your postcards to our office by December 1st.

Address:
Digital Manga Inc,
1487 W 178th St # 300
Gardena, CA 90248


I plan on sending a postcard, if you’re a KOR fan please consider doing the same! I’m sure he’d appreciate it.

This is a Weekly Shonen Jump video released in 1987 featuring sort of a making-of of Izumi Matsumoto’s Kimagure Orange Road manga.

Here you can see the interesting process of creating a Manga back then and all the work involved.

This was from before the anime was released and you can notice that they used the same kind of music that they will later use in the anime. They even used a model to embody the real appearance of Madoka Ayukawa.

Gotta love these kind of stuff!
