What anime do you love to watch?

I'm a big fan of studio Ghibli!! I love watching all their creations.
I like anime with great story lines, often centralized around the protagonist.
Don't really have a specification towards genre as long as they're not yuri or yaoi

What manga do you love to read?

I love reading adventure, action, historical, supernatural and drama.
At times when I don't feel like concentrating much I opt for shoujo manga's, the equal to chick flicks I suppose

What do you recommend?

Howl's moving castle
Princess Mononoke
Cowboy Bebop
Vampire Hunter D
Wolf's rain

What's the first one you saw/read?

First anime I watched was Nausicaa and first manga I read was Vampire Knight.

The first anime I watched was Silver Fang It think it's called Meteor Gin everywhere else than in Scandinavia. Oh those where the days back in 1986. It became quite again cult when I was in college, we searched everywhere for old video tapes in the sales sections in supermarkets...it really was fun! That was before it was re-released though. And I still remember the theme song, so awesome.

ended up going to Otakon again and signed up for Crunchyroll. So now I am just watching Blue Exorcist, Saint Seiya: lost canvas, and Eyeshield 21. Guess I am getting back into anime again?

I didnt know where to post this ... really ... and the tokyo midtown thread's closed - i feel like it's because it was becoming a japanese thread. ahah.

but the BNF (French National Library) just upload on their website over 500 japanese litographies from (French painter) Henri Riviere's collection ...
it is HERE

PS: you can't change the language to english, yet ... but it is easy french to figure out, and titles are written in japanese

Hi Berlin

I tried to look at two but they both have just listings, no pictures.

Do you mean woodcut? Ukiyo-e, not lithography

this is weird ... when you click the link there's no image ?
coz i have images (see screencap)
i know their site isnt the best, but i have images, and can click and zoom in even ...


also, i might have used lithography by mistake, indeed ... (was the technic in japan yet at this time?)
... now i've read a few labels it says they are engraved on wood, so ukiyo ...
and since i didnt know what was ukiyo, i googled and well the BNF has a big collection numerized on the same website I linked.
but hold on ukiyo is a technic or a genre ? im a bit confused...

ukiyo-e...
it's a technique, i think- like water color or oil paint...or screen printing...
you carve several blocks of wood with different parts of the image- one for each color...
the more colors, the more blocks needed...

i think falls under the genre of printing...

I'm no fan of anime & manga. It sucked me into a very unhealthy culture at a young age - pathological obsession with female youthfulness. I ended up thinking that I was "on the shelf" at 12.

Strange- the website is working for me now and I do see the pictures. I'm only using my phone. I do sometimes see error when I try to load a link. For example, the pages with text

Ah I think yes 'woodcut' is the right term for that. Or woodblock print
Sorry i understood the word wrong. Ukiyo-e is a genre. Woodblock printing is the main technique used for this genre and that genre's pictures look like this
It's amazing, isn't it.. The lines are so fine and the colours too-- You would think it was hand drawn, not carved.

Thanks a lot for the link =)

Hey does lithograph in French mean -any- kind of print? In English, it is a specific method
