Final thoughts on Gangsta and Studio Manglobe:

Despite starting off very promising, Gangsta’s finale has rung throughout the anime community as the final death knell of Studio Manglobe. As the series progressed, it became apparent Manglobe was unable to continue producing the high-octane action the first four episodes gave us. The animation quality continued to dip and the story became more erratic before inconclusively signing off in the middle of an arc. At the time of this posting, Manglobe employees have stated that the studio has gone bankrupt and are now seeking work.

Over the course of 11 years, Manglobe mantra has always been about experimentation and western appeal. Their first and most popular work among western audiences, Samurai Champloo, personifies this quality best. Other shows like Ergo Proxy and Michiko to Hatchin continued this trend over the years despite financial failure after failure. Out of 16 series, only one broke 4,000 units sold. Many of these shows remain as some of my most memorable anime experiences. And I hope that they will be remembered long after Manglobe closes its doors.

[YOI] Random staff twitter conversation

I was asked to translate an amusing Twitter conversation that happened earlier so here it is!

Tweet by Takashi Shiina (author of Zettai Karen Children etc, he likes YOI), actually this is from October 29th, not sure why the staff spotted it now.


“For some reason, I had the impression that I saw a certain image when I watched the anime for the first time, but even re-watching it I couldn’t find it, so I’m drawing a rough sketch of it. Please someone finish it for me.”

Reply by Noriko Itou (animation director for YOI):


“I tried drawing it, but no matter how many times I look at it there’s no scene like this…”

Mitsurou Kubo intervenes (not linking the tweet because it’s just text):
“Princess carry… It’s curious, because I have the feeling it already happened but indeed we’ve never drawn something like that… Why…?”

“We must have missed something… They should just go ahead and skate on the rink like that…”

Additional note:
On her Twitter, Kubo later commented that in figure skating there are actually level 4 (=high score) princess carry and other techniques involving lifts. (I interpret this comment as her way of saying that talking about princess carry on an ice rink is not necessarily off topic because there are indeed techniques like that in pair skating and ice dance, lol)

They’re just so amusing and so random, lol… But I agree with the person who wrote in the comments: “I’m sure you’re just saving it for season 2, aren’t you?”.
