Para Para Manga

I just found out that Para Para Manga is what they call Flip books in Japan.

Here's a beaut one by Tatsuyuki Tanaka.

He was the animator assigned to Tetsuo’s mutation scene at the end of Akira

This next one is animated by Shinya Ohira who is also an Akira vet, he also did the chase scene in the Animatrix short "Kid story"

If you want to nerd up on your Japanese animator knowledge here's a good place to start.

Thanks to Catsuka (the wonderful animation news site) and Halcyon Realms (a pretty great blog and the guy has a good bookstore that I have spent a bit of money at)
