I love posting from my phone! Though I cant edit, so thats a little troublesome..

I just wanted to share a manga that Ive really been enjoying: Oyasumi Punpun

Right now, Urasawa Naoki (20th Century Boys, Monster, Pluto, et al) and Asano Inio (Solanin, What a Beautiful World, et al) are my biggest inspirations. I want to have such thoughtful, inspiring stories as theirs.. and they have amazing artwork and character development.

Oyasumi Punpun is Asanos current work, and while its a comedy about a grade schooler depicted as a chicken cariacture, its still unsettlingly poignant..Its really something. Theyre my biggest inspirations!

Im also in love with Tanemura Arina and Yazawa Ais artwork too. In a way, the style Im currently working in is like a combination of the 4. Plus my original.

AHHHHHH I LOVE Asano Inio's stuff! I've only read one chapter of punpun, but I'm definitely gonna read more of it when I get the time. Solanin is my absolute favorite manga series ♥

I really liked Solanin too! Though it was a little bit depressing..

definitely a little depressing, but I thought it was kind of feel-good too.

How are you posting it from phone anyway?
I suggest for security purpose, you can change the default posting setting to locked entries first if you gonna post a lot from your phone without able to edit them ~_^

urusawa naoki is a total genius, his work is incredibly well researched, especially monster..I think that was probably the most gripping manga I ever read.

*FLAILS* Urasawa Naoki!! Oh my god, his storytelling is AMAZING and his anatomy (and drawing in general!) is always done so well. *O* After reading 20th Century/21st Century Boys, I was all "@____@" for so long because it was such a mindscrew, but in the best sense. *____*

Oh yeah, I love Urasawa's works. Well, I'm particular to his older works like Keaton and Monster. :D
