Hold it, hatamoto! No need to resort to funshi, because here at last are the eagerly-awaited opening 5 pages of the Mirabilis saga in Japanese, heralded here a week or so ago. We'll be running the remaining 5 pages of Episode One tomorrow - then we've got to figure out how to get our online flipbooks to start at the back so we can put this up with all the other episodes. Manga it ain't, I grant you that, but try envisaging it as the storyboards for the first reel of a Studio Ghibli movie and you'll see it just as we intended.
Happy Halloween From Longbox Graveyard! - We AXED for it!
