hey! I wonder if anybody else in the fashion community watches anime (Japanese animation) or reads manga (Japanese graphic novels) as avidly as I do?

I actually found there are many parallels in anime and haute couture…. http://the-ocd.blogspot.com

Check it out and let me know what you think?

Yes! I love manga! I don’t watch anime quite as much since it takes so much longer for things to happen (and the cliffhangers… ohhhh, the cliffhangers.) But my boyfriend has gotten me into Fullmetal Alchemist 2 recently. Sooo… I guess I do follow that one.

My favorite mangaka is CLAMP and I’ll probably read anything of theirs since they always have imaginative plotlines and my absolute favorite illustrations. I haven’t read anything of theirs too recently though, since I don’t really like Tsubasa too much, but I guess xxxHolic is still pretty great. Thanks for reminding me to revisit that. :)

I am a gigantor anime fan(get the pun I just did, gigantor is an old 60s anime show, wow such a geek) I have two accounts on different anime sites gaiaonline and crunchyroll. Been a fan of it since the good of days when they actually hand drew there stuff. If you want anime mix with fashion go check out Paradise Kiss. Its about a bunch of young adults trying to make into the fashion business. I wanted to get myself, but its going to be hard to find it since the company that had it here in the US went under. wow that a mouth full of text.

I’m pretty huge on anime, though I too have fallen out a little bit. I’m more for manga and pretty stuff though lol. I’ll totally check that out though, it sounds really cool :)

I’ve wanted for a while to actual cosplay, but I never have the time to do it. And I really don’t want to make my own costume so I would check some cosplay sites.

Recently got back into it, watching Durarara! at the moment….actually waiting for the rest of the translated episodes to be put up… Manga wise, tend to read random books I can get my hands on. But loving David mack comics and illustration…just amazing.

I’ve been a huge anime geek since I was 13, although my fiance is even geekier. :)
I like everything from Death Note to FLCL to Now and Then, Here and There.

I suppose anime and fashion have some similarities, some of the characters’ costume designs look great, whether it be high fashion or something wearable. :)
