THE most famous manga based on the Phantom of the Opera story: Operaza no Kaijin by JET. Published in 1989 (the year after Phantom of the Opera musical stage version, the first non-English, was opened in Japan), it demonstrated how smoothly the story can be transformed into comics/manga.
Being at school, JET read The Mystery of Yellow Room by Gaston Leroux, and she loved it a lot and read later more Leroux’s novels. In 1980 she watched movie with Lon Chaney for the first time, and was surprised that the story of the Phantom of the Opera was written by her favorite writer.
Operaza no Kaijin is based on combination of book, movie and musical.
IMHO, it’s one of the great manga masterpieces (and not because it’s the Phantom’s story XD).
You can find the full manga here.
*Puts brief case down on the table and takes off glasses very seriously* “So about that AU we discussed that one time.”
I DO WHAT I WANT
I’m going through a very suddenly super hard-time restraintful time right now, so I’m sorry for being slow to reply or post original stuff! I do have a lot of sketches I’m going to be sharing (Ghibli, Raffles, Holmes…) within the next 2 weeks, so stay tuned!
25 Jareth Icons for jareth-goblin-king as promised.
No but seriously
this is beautiful
i dunno what’s up with that painting tumblr goes from making it look muddy to making it too high-contrast
(that’s Hellman as Bunny and me as Raffles btw)
I thought it was supposed to be my AU with jonny lee miller and lucy liu as bunny and raffles
i wondered why jonny lee miller looked so uh twelve
i messed up
I was just saying how that looked exactly like me, like, what are you trying to imply here? That I look twelve of something?! D:<
i mean i totally do look twelve but you don’t need to rub it in
Also Livie, you got mistaken for Lucy Liu - that’s a compliment if I ever heard one!
nah hellman you look, like, 13.8 at LEAST
if we’re gonna be accurate, lecturerinrecentrunes's 22 in that picture (because that's how old you were when I asked for the reference……… it was right before your Birthday last year)
So that’s why it looks like you,Hellman! I GOT A GOOD REFERENCE that doesn’t include toilet paper on your head. (or mayo)
I never did ask you, Hellman…
How DID you get paint in your hair while painting a desk????
