In a way, this shows the medium is growing. But it just doesn't... feel... right.

I don't really know much about her, so I'm probably not going to buy the manga. Who come up with this idea anyway?

both Razz

Actually this is interesting since she just signed a new contract with Virgin and she is going to be in the next episode of the Osbornes (sp) this Tuesday.. hmmm Guess swindling Atlantic out of her contract over those Nirvana tapes paid off for her.. hahaha

I love Ai Yazawas art, but I think it would have been a lot more interesting if Benkyo Tamaoki did the manga. Heh.. wonder if there will
be doujinshis of this next year hahaha!!

I hate that blood sucking woman so much, and there is no chance in hell I'm buying manga based on her life. She is insane, which would make for good entertainment, but she has spent the last ten years doing nothing but trying to make money off of her late husband. I have no respect for her.

And another thing. Isn't it a pre-requisite that shoujo has to have attractive characters? I mean it would make sense if this was Mandy Moore, but Courtney Love is fugly! Anyway, http://whatever-dude.com/​posts/​102.​shtml best sums it up. [/b]

Why, Ai Yazawa?! WHY?! As a fan of Ai Yazawa I feel obligated to pick this up, but then on the other hand I really HATE Love, and I don't want to support her at all. Anime cry I am torn in two.

Heh.. I read your phrase "I really HATE love," and was confused for a moment! Anime hyper I took a look at the manga at a book store. The art was really nice... but Courtney Love, what the hell? This is a definite "What the hell" situation.

Courtney Love was a creative consultant on Princess Ai. She helped put the story together. It isn't about Love, it isn't written by Love, drawn by Love or even produced by Love. She had a hand in the story concept. That's it. Manga fans who dig Ai Yazawa and DJ Milky would do well to pick this one up.

Seriously.
