posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Seven boys-love manga artists took inspiration from Luis Ortega's El Angel (Eien ni Boku no Mono) live-action crime drama for a series of artwork. Participating artists include Asumiko Nakamura (Classmates), Delico Psyche (Alice in the Country of Hearts: My Fanatic Rabbit), Dayoo (Young Bad Education), Mushiba (Tengoku in Hell), Billy Balibally (Mayonaka no Orphe), Uri (Akuma wa Fancy Allergy ), and Kyōichi (Flowers Bloom as the Night Unravels).
The artwork will be exhibited at Shibuya Sine quint theater.
IMDb describes the plot of El Angel:
Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling--to be a thief--manifested itself. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discoveries, love and crime. Killing is just a random offshoot of the violence, which continues to escalate until Carlitos is finally apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death." Showered with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity.
The film opened in the U.S. in November and in Japan on August 16.
