Amazing and worth every cent.

great to see Sakamoto Shinichi in the list, his art is awesome, but I’m not sure about erotica quality in his ‘イノサン’ work, mostly horror stuff.

Josh

Ah! I see some pages by Aquirax Uno….surely you recognize his very distinctive style from posters all over Tokyo.

Are you a fan?

Josh – Not particularly a very big fan, but I do recognize his work. :]

foggyflute – I’ve been meaning to pick up one of his manga because the art looks amazing, but otherwise I’m quite new to his work. :]
