Trigun Anime Manga Volume 1

Paperback

From Booklist
Gr. 9-12. In the first volume in a new graphic novel series, Vash the Stampede, an infamous outlaw in a postapocalyptic world, leaves a trail of destruction in his wake. Rumors of his villainy, passed freely along the frontier, have resulted in Bernadelli Insurance Society dispatching two agents, Meryl and Milly, to catch up with Vash and stem the tide of insurance claims related to the disasters. Once the agents meet Vash, however, they find that though chaos follows him with an unnatural frequency, Vash is actually a nonviolent, somewhat goofy guy. This full-color Trigun, not to be confused with the reprint of the manga version (also available from Dark Horse), has been taken directly from frames of the popular anime series. The art, in the traditional manga style, is fun and kinetic, and it illustrates...

From Library Journal
A successful contributor to MAD magazine, the "Blondie" cartoon strip, and various film and TV productions, Hart previously brought us Manga Mania: How To Draw Japanese Comics. In this follow-up, he demonstrates anime, the unique Japanese animation style of heavy shading, dramatic camera angles, and beautifully rendered special effects, most popularly known to U.S. audiences through series like Digimon and Sailor Moon. Based more on character than action, these anime include high-tech cyberpunks and teen characters with troubled relationships, as well as monsters, fantasy warriors, and giant robots. Hart covers storyboarding, sketching, perspective, the basics of animating, and the functioning of an animation studio. Rounding out the book are interviews with two anime directors. Highly recommended for...


Kids Draw Anime

Paperback

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6-Hart supplies simple instructions for creating the distinctive eyes, exaggerated expressions, and dramatic poses that characterize Japanese-style cartoon figures. Intending to get budding artists off on the right foot, he shows how each body part and posture begins with basic geometric shapes and then, rather than furnish start-to-finish directions, he skips from the sketched outline to a finished, colored example. The brief captions mix practical advice, such as, "The neck isn't just plopped on the shoulders. It begins inside the body," with inspirational comments, and the book closes on a high note with pulse-elevating pictures of two large monsters and a general melee. Though this book never gets beyond the drawing of single figures, it makes a good start for serious beginners; more practiced...
