Hey. Since I'm sorting through the last of my Garo scans, I'll dump an autogiographical manga about the rise of gekiga.

>Yoshihiro Tatsumi (辰巳 ヨシヒロ Tatsumi Yoshihiro, June 10, 1935 - March 7, 2015) was a Japanese manga artist who is widely credited with starting the gekiga style of alternative comics in Japan, having allegedly coined the term in 1957.

>A Drifting Life (劇画漂流 Gekiga Hyōryū?) is an autobiographical Japanese manga written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Tatsumi and chronicles his life from 1945 to 1960 when he began submitting and publishing manga.

>Over four decades ago, Yoshihiro Tatsumi expanded the horizons of comics storytelling by using the visual language of manga to tell gritty, literary stories about the private lives of everyday people. He has been called "the grandfather of Japanese alternative comics" and has influenced generations of cartoonists around the world. Now the visionary creator of "The Push Man and Other Stories" and "Good-bye" has turned his incisive, unflinching gaze upon himself. Over ten years in the making, "A Drifting Life" is Tatsumis' most ambitious, personal, and heart felt work: an autobiographical bildungsroman in comics form. Using his life long obsession with comics as a frame work, Tatsumi weaves a complex story that encompasses family dynamics, Japanese culture and history, first love, the intricacies of the manga industry, and most importantly, what it means to be an artist. Alternately humorous, enlightening, and haunting, this is the masterful summation of a fascinating life and a historic career.

Exceeds 215 pages, so you'll have to read the rest on your own.

At least post a DDL link. Fascinating, apparently the Kickthekitty Mega links were taken down. I guess there's always BakaBT.

Someone should fix this page. I'm pretty sure the other chunk is in the scans.

I like the idea that Tezuka never went anywhere without that stupid hat, even when he was in school.
>>
>>133533855
Anon I applaud you for posting about gekiga but its wasted on the shit stains that browse /a/

expect some HUUUR WHERE ARE THE CUTE GIRLS type of posts soon

But where are the cute girls?
>>
>>133535710
There's a grand total of 20 anons that actually browse Garo dumps. A full 20 more than every other shithole. And 20 more than you could possibly get from any forum within 24 hours.
>>
>>
>>133535682

Stories about Tezuka are amusing in general. I should find more material on him to read. There are some translated NHK interviews, etc. on Youtube, Dailymotion, etc. and he still has his damn hat.

You'll have to settle for moe men. Mizuki is the moest, but his autobiographical manga won't ever be translated.

Hey. Hey, anon. Do you know any group that would be interested in encoding of the movie "Tatsumi"? http://anidb.net/a9201

The existing 720p encode has noticeable banding problems and the only subtitles available are translated from French (BDs were released only in France, I believe).
I got my hands on the BDMV (1080p) but I can't encode for shit. Currently I'm retiming official English subtitles from the hardsubbed UK DVD rip and making mediocre sign typesetting.

I like that stupid hat for what it did. People use it to show that this particular character here is a mangaka, usually in a gag or something. I like those. Like the last page of Cromartie, remember?
>>
>>133536274

Maybe, I can ask the encoding group on a tracker that I'm part of. There's a 1080 on there already, though, so maybe the subs would just have to be fixed.
>>
>>
>>133536274
The mangafag population and the encoding guys seem to end up very separate. Scanlation and fansubbers hardly ever crossed (more so now with fansubbers being practically dead).

I agree, but we won't be able to read a lot of them. Shit like Nonnonbaa to Ore or Kakukaku Shikajika. I think I've read most of what I could of the autobiography tag on MU.

I already posted Kamui Den a couple times, and I don't think I have any of his other stuff downloaded. I might scan a volume or two of his other short series.

I plan on getting all of Tatsumi's stuff but any you'd recommend getting next immediately? I only own A Drifting Life and Abandon the Old in Tokyo. Was thinking of getting Goodbye next, just because I like the fact they released it in hardcover.

It was most westaboo right after the war. All the comics rushed in and that's why Tezuka and everyone else rushed to copy them. And by copy, they literally started off copying them.
