Waiting for Momotaro.
The first in a long-running series that they can never let go. They still haven't let go of it, but where it's gone to is rather interesting...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB6NqkCBbhs
My jaw just dropped.It looks like the wolves are flying in Ornithopters. Freakin' amazing stuff.
"My jaw just dropped."Here's a couple more to force you into the emergency room!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2okxVXzTDMhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ynuh87S_s08&list=PL57F626FC65AD97B2&index=58http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL57F626FC65AD97B2"It looks like the wolves are flying in Ornithopters. Freakin' amazing stuff."They've certainly improved since the days of "The Legend of the Titanic". We can only hope this never ends! :-P
God if I had the nerve, I'd download all of these for whatever price they've asked for, but I'll be doing a disservice to my own country!http://kmvc5.com/Media?searchKey=%EB%8B%A4%EB%9E%8C%EC%9D%B4%EC%99%80+%EA%B3%A0%EC%8A%B4%EB%8F%84%EC%B9%98&searchField=Cate&page=1&cd=00000501

Obviously I'm gonna need to do a follow up post on this show. Just to give it justice.Keep the links coming.
There really needs to be a fanpage for this series (just like we did for anime in the 90's), at least something to do an episode guide, character information and whatever else could be found about this.
I suppose I provided all that there is needed to be said about this cartoon. Somehow I didn't realize what North Korea did yesterday until after I posted my comments, but it's quite a coincidence to think about this since I do wonder how long could they keep this up or will Squirrel & Hedgehog see no conclusion at all? I like the sort of serialization they gave this and how the technique appears to be changing overtime given the years this has been around (going from cel to digital, though I think they're starting to cheat a bit with Flash in the last episode).
"There really needs to be a fanpage for this series..."Heck yeah. That's kinda what I want to do in my expanded post. I've gotta expand on all the amazing things in this show.The creeping production quality is part of the weird charm here. If you haven't read it yet I recommend reading Guy Delisle's Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea. It's an autobiographical comic about about Delisle doing corrections on an French animated tv show with a North Korean crew. Incredibly revealing stuff.
I've read it! I wish there was more of that story to share!
I kept looking for those pins that Delisle talks about in his book.
Have to read it again someday (found a copy out there in BitTorrentLand).I'm sure those pins are the usual Kim Il Sung pins everyone is forced to wear these days (just like they're forced to display and maintain the portraits of both former leaders (and probably Kim Jong Un) these days.
Apparently some documentary on Guy Delsile was released last year.https://vimeo.com/36132552It's said a movie based on Delisle's book "Pyongyang" is in the works, though it sounds like they're going overboard as usual on the experience.http://comicsbeat.com/guy-delisles-pyongyang-in-production-with-gore-verbinski-attached/Still, not bad for a guy who had to waste his life on "Ovide", "The Magic Voyage" and "The Animals of Farthing Wood".
