The House of Five Leaves –

Posted in art with tags on September 27, 2010 by marksun

I tried to post this on the manga site but I g0t “Sorry, the system error occurs.”   Even the errors provide entertainment.

So the House of Five Leaves site will have to carry on without my comments.

I have been enjoying this superb manga for some months now, puzzled over the spare art, the, elegant, ugly/beautiful characters. I discovered the  House of Five Leaves series of ten episodes on Hulu, then found this site by accident. While there are  differences between the animation and manga, they share the same craftsmanship.  In the video version, music and voices are great, even the background characters like world-weary  madame Ane-san, voice harshened by years of sipping at her pipe –  are memorable. What will develop next?
