Some updates to the site are finally underway. Unfortunately no more
manga has been published beyond the first two volumes, but that might allow
me to catch up on the translations. There is new Kodansha website in
English at KODANCLUB.com that has
some information on Genzô in the Promising Works section. I also
found a review of
the manga by EX magazine.
Anime Puppetry Webring
OK, so it's been nearly a year and the site hasn't been updated. Sorry,
hopefully I'll have time to do some more translations soon. Anyway,
yesterday I got invited to join a webring specifically for anime and manga
series involving puppets and puppetry. It's a cool concept, and the ring
owner has a very nice Ayatsuri
Sakon shrine that includes information about Japanese puppetry.
Welcome to the Puppet's Heart. Here you can learn all about the latest
manga series from Takada
Yûzô. Be sure to check out the
translation of the first manga chapter and
the 2000 calendar information.
I just learned about this, so I haven't had time to update the products page.
There will be a
Takada Yûzô artbook published next January, containing more than
100 color illustrations from all of his most popular series.
