Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
The Japanese production company Media Factory began streaming a new 117-second promotional video for the Kamisama Dolls television anime this week.
Hajime Yamamura's original supernatural action manga centers around Kyōhei (Nobuhiko Okamoto), a college student who grew up in a village that deified figureheads named kakashi as gods. Kyōhei abandoned his hometown when he moved to Tokyo and immersed himself in college life. However, he learns from his younger sister Utao (Misato Fukuen) that a fugitive named Aki (Ryohei Kimura) from his hometown has also arrived in Tokyo (with his kakashi in tow) and is responsible for a horrific crime that Kyōhei had just witnessed.
