Getting it Wrong: Manga Serialization and Fillers

I’ve seen many people getting the manga serialization and fillers wrong. This is a post for such fans.

Serialization of manga

There are many manga out there you can read to learn about how manga is serialized. But if you don’t want to read a manga, just learn here. Better read Bakuman. A manga is serialized in a magazine(well, duh). It could be weekly, monthly, bi-monthly (twice a month). So,…

Was Kira truly evil?

Light Yagami, better known as KIRA, has become a kind of a legend when it comes to anime. Being the titular character of death note, he has  pushed his way through the minds of everyone who has seen this anime masterpiece. Created by Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata, he represents a very different class of anime characters, the kind which are difficult to forget and at the same time quite difficult…

[Warning: May contain minor spoilers that wouldn’t really spoil much] Kuroshitsuji 3 was the most awaited anime of summer 2014. Its first two seasons were a big hit but many fans, especially the ones who were also fan of its manga were very disappointed by the two initial seasons as most of the anime contained original anime stories and some even claim that it was badly constructed.

Ichigo

Theodore Linardos is a cosplayer from Sacramento, California. He is better known by his cosplay-name Living Ichigo. As the name suggests, he is recognized for his cosplay of different versions of Ichigo Kurosaki from the blockbuster Bleach. He started cosplaying back in 2010 and now has thousands of followers on Facebook. You can follow him also on Instagram, YouTube and Twitch.

–Interview by Tanya Kaushik

TK: Now you must get this a lot, but for the benefit of our readers, what introduced you and got you interested in cosplay?

LI: I got interested in cosplaying when a good friend of mine took me to me very first anime convention many years ago. Didn’t know what cosplay was at the time. I saw people walking around the convention dressed up as anime characters and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. So I told myself I really wanted to try that someday. So when the next anime convention rolled around I decided to cosplay and the rest is history.

TK: Why Ichigo?

LI: Well back when I first started cosplaying I just recently got back into Anime. The series that got me back into anime was Bleach. Loved Bleach a lot and I loved the character Ichigo a lot. So I decided I wanted to cosplay him. Since I was new to cosplaying and not too sure if I wanted to do it that often I told myself I only was going to cosplay Ichigo and that was it. Honestly back then I never imaged anyone cosplaying more than one character just because of the time and effort it takes to do some of these cosplays and how much it cost as well. So since I cosplayed Ichigo it spread like wildfire all over the internet. People were giving me a lot of nicknames for how well my ichigo cosplay was. The nickname the stuck was “Living Ichigo”. So I decided to make that my cosplay name. Even though I cosplay other characters I stayed by that nickname because it reminds me of my cosplay roots and how I became what I am now because of that cosplay.

Ichigo hollow form

TK: Which form of Ichigo is your favorite?

LI: Vizard Ichigo is my favorite form of Ichigo to cosplay. Had to both capture the character look with the props and battled damaged clothing and the physical look with my body. Was a nice balance that makes that one of my favorite cosplays.

TK: I have not seen you cosplay Ichigo’s Full Getsuga Tenshou form. Why have you not done it yet?

LI: Well honestly I don’t have a very good answer to that quite frankly. I know doing the time I was busy working on other projects. It sort of skipped my mind I suppose and don’t know when I will go back to cosplaying it since I have so many other projects I’m working on now. I might go and cosplay that form one of these days when nobody is expecting it though.

Skullclad Ichigo

TK: Your Skullclad Ichigo is awesome! How much time did it took you to complete that? What materials did you use?

LI: Well the cosplay project was a pain to work on. I had to constantly dive two and a half hours to work on the project with my friend Joe. Took weeks since I rarely have free time. Most of it is made out of craft foam actually It was hot clued onto a spandex shirt. The scholls were molded out of clay and then resine casted. After all the was done It was painted to give it a metallic look just like it has in the movie even though it’s a bone armor.

TK: Can you tell us something about your costume-making process?

LI: There’s a ton of thing that go into creating a cosplay. Sewing, wig styling, crafting of props such as armor and weapons. You can go to any local crafts store to pick up materials to work on anything really such as craft foam. Going to a fabric store like Joann’s to pick up fabric and patterns you need to sew a cosplay together. Have to have a sewing machine as well. There’s all sorts of helpful tutorials online that you can pretty much learn just about anything you need to construct a cosplay. There’s a ton more stuff that goes into enplaning the process it takes to make every part of a cosplay work.

TK: What are you working on now? 

LI: Working on a Wolverine cosplay. His comic book version. Other copslays I’m working on would be more Dragonball Z cosplays, some One Piece Cosplays, a ton more comic book characters and the list goes on. I probably working on 10 projects currently.

Grimmjow

TK: Say, if you weren’t allowed to cosplay Ichigo? Who would’ve you cosplayed?

LI: If my first cosplay wasn’t Ichigo it probably would have been Grimmjow from Bleach in which I have cosplayed him before.

TK: Anything you’d like to say to your fans/upcoming cosplayers?

LI: For those of you who are thinking about cosplaying for the first time and are not sure or scared my one advice is don’t be scared and just do you best to cosplay. I was also new at one point as well and I learned over the years how to better improve my craft in cosplay. Thanks for all the support over the years and I’ll continue to bring you all amazing cosplays.

TK: What conventions will you be attending in 2014?

LI: Next convention I’ll be attending is Saboten Con. As for the rest of the year I’m undecided currently.

Here are some other cosplays by Living Ichigo:

Spider-Man Scriptwriter got Raped

Recently I came across the “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ movie and the movie was as if the Spider-Man scriptwriter got raped and then he prepared it in tears. Rather than writing endless paragraphs, let us do a picture book review.

Movie started with a good scene which grabbed my attention. It made me curious about Project Roosevelt.

Why Otakus in India are Considered Thumb Sucking Kids

Recently I have been wondering that what makes our society and our parents think that anime’s are some useless crap which teaches us nothing but spoil our brains and we should grow up and start watching their daily soaps which according to them are related to real life..
So I will stop talking useless things and cut to the chase..

The many faces of Saber Arturia

Carnival Phantasm had its original run back in 2011 but has since remained one of the best parodies in anime. It takes characters from Fate, Tsukihime, and the rest of the Nasuverse, and gives birth to a product entirely fresh and amusing to say the least. Just imagine your lovable characters deal with the most comic of situations. It aired as a series of 12 OVAs each full of running gags of the…

The Delhi Anime Club Meeting (July Edition)

It was a bright sunny summer day on the 6th of July, when our Delhi Anime Club had one of it’s monthly group meetings, though ‘group meeting’ sounds like a formal event, it was as far away from that as a person can picture.
