Reviews - What do customers think about The New Generation of Manga Artists Vol. 1: The Koh Kawarajima Portfolio?
I wish I could rate this higher. Nov 6, 2005
The artist, Koh Kawarajima and his crew are very talented and are remarkable at what they do. The art in this book is very well done with innovative designs, vibrant colors, and astonishing backgrounds. The style of the manga in this book is my favorite, big eyes, long hair and cute faces. There is about 64 pictures not including the pencil drawing rough drafts in the back. I wish this is all I could say about the book, but it isn't.
The reason I can not recommend this book is this; girls that show too much. Most pictures are rather modest, but some go too far. A few pictures have girls that are barley clothed and some that aren't clothed at all. Some are intentionally sticking their butt and some are about to "fall out" of what they are wearing. Some are in bathing suits and some are in their underwear. This is typical for manga I'm sorry to say, and I can not advocate this for anyone.
