My Newest Craze

{Images courtesy of}

Well... I'd watched this anime series on AXN a 1 or 2 years ago on Astro. It's called Gensomaden Saiyuki, or Journey to the West (Japanese version), by Kazuya Minekura.

The characters totally stole my heart, especially this so-called monk/priest, Genjo Sanzo *love*. Kazuya is a really talented artist, and I just love the way she brings the guys to life in the anime series, with their macho-ness, cool yet down-to-earth mia style and killer looks.

Also, I truly admire her artworks. And that's how I came to find out about the Gensomaden Saiyuki Art Books. Yes. This is my latest craze. There are more than 10 of them, all drawn by Kazuya. I intend to collect them all, even if it'll take me lifetime. :P

And after searching through eBay, I was attacked by another craze --->> SailorMoon Art Books!

These I MUST have, no matter what. From my early teens, I've started loving the Japanese manga, and have bought the whole collection of 18 manga comics in Bahasa Malaysia version. It costed about RM3.90 per book, and is damn cheap come to think of it now.

What I love about SailorMoon is the beautiful paintings of the stunningly lovely girls, done by the author, Naoko Takeuchi. It is my wish to have all her artworks, paintings, and drawings of SailorMoon. Now, my discovery of these art books is beginning to shine a ray of hope to fulfill my wish...

Hey lynnwei... I wanted to reply to your comment but forgot. :P *smacks self*

Nodame Cantabile? No, I've not read it. In fact, I don't think I've read any other manga besides Sailor Moon. ^-^" Got a few here and there la, like one volume of Slam Dunk, quite a few volumes of Crayon Shin Chan, Doraemon. ^-^" Hehe... they're not mangas with beautiful illustrations, but their contents made me laugh like mad. :D

Yalo... Manga guys are just droolable... :P
