A group of manga artists, under the guidance of  Ranjo Miyake, have launched a post-tsunami art project, entitled “Jishin no Baka Yaro: MDS Sakusen”, or “F*** You, Earthquake”.

Many  manga artists thought “I want to help! Through manga!” And that’s what we’re doing. These are the illustrations and messages submitted by manga artists who want to do what they can now”.

The title was thought up by Shiriagari Kotobuki. The project’s subtitle, “Manga-ka datte dekiru koto wo suru”, means “Even manga artists will do what they can”. As manga artists we send you messages from deep within our souls. We’re powerless to help you, but we are thinking of you, praying for you, wishing you well”.

Kosupure – Cosplay (2006 – 2009)

Appropriate costumes are mostly sewn by the Cosplayers themselves.

Interviews with the people involved in this project (age range between 11 to 55 years); also detail-shots from the making-of of the costumes.

A humurous view behind the scenes of a worldwide youth-culture, which did also “infect” Austria – Europe – and has not stopped there. How did TV-series like Heidi, Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Naruto, … inspire teens, twens and those young at heart, to create costumes with, for example, 3,5 metre wide wings.

Inside Inside

“Many comics show a superhero, who is so ‘Oberdrübermega’ and who saves the world. Mangas show normal, everyday people
and the story focuses on them and their daily-life problems.”

Cloud Dark on – Why are you reading Mangas and not Comics?

“When you do LARP (Live Action Role Play) you get hit by a weapon made of rubber, when doing a show-fight, you can only hope you don’t get hit at all, because those weapons are made out of solid steel, …”
