just a heads up


According to this post, Imangascans will most likely be dropping Diamond no Ace unless a translator steps forward to take responsibility for the series. As the post points out, there is another group working on translations, but so far their focus has been on later chapters.

Dude, thanks so much for the follow. I really dig your posts about the animation industry. It always seemed like an unattainable thing without a degree from cal arts or something, so it's nice to see that doing good work is just as valuable.



Hey Bensears,

Thanks man, I think the Cal Arts thing is a “California/West Coast” thing since many of the studios here mine talent from there (Art Center too, it seems). on the East Coast, it’s usually about SVA, RISD and Cooper Union, etc. So it really just depends on where you’re from where you’re trying to get work and what you want to do. I went to neither (I didn’t attend a 4 year course on art/animation at all and I turned out just fine not being a Cal Arts alum). Although It’s believed that going to animation school allows you to learn things faster, a logical person knows it doesn’t matter what school you graduated from if your portfolio is weak. Thankfully, animation and the arts in general are still rooted in meritocracy. Just depends on what region you’re in. So focus on being a badass, bro! :-)

Thanks for watching!

I will be at Otakuthon next weekend at table A414 with Shirley!! Please stop by and say hi! ^0^

I’m going to be cosplaying Julian from acnl, and Teshima Junta from Yowapeda.

I’m running low on a lot of these stuff. Not all prints will be displayed but you can just mention it and I’ll get it out from the back.

See you soon!

Rating: M for explicit sex, violence and language.


Following the violent break up with Kaneda, Tetsuo branches off to his struggling life as a fresh Yakuza recruit to pay off his debt, unknowingly thrust into a national scheme much larger than he could anticipate. Playing with fate and with his life constantly on the line, he sets to rise above the world’s most powerful crime syndicate, commandeering a new, ruthless empire in modern day Japan.

A story I’m starting to write following Tetsuo’s journey with the Yakuza, seeing as you guys have seen so much of the art already.

Will be updating relatively often. Hopefully at least once a week.

A wonderful meeting, or a beautiful thing can exist. We depict hatred, but it is to depict that there are more important things. We depict a curse, to depict the joy of liberation. What we should depict is, how the boy understands the girl, and the process in which the girl opens her heart to the boy. At the end, the girl will say to the boy, ‘I love you, Ashitaka. But I cannot forgive humans.’ Smiling, the boy should say, ‘That is fine. Live with me.’”  ( — Hayao Miyazaki)
