I'm not against something like this, dependent on how it's implemented. My only concern is a functional one with the beards, though it's somewhat moot because there are those who are issued "no-shave" chits for medical purposes already. The only thing I call to light is the lack of an airtight seal on an OBA breathing apparatus, or the MOP Gear gas mask. A lot of people forget that India was a part of the Allied Forces during World War 2 and have been our allies since. I think ignorant folks see a Punjab Headdress and think Arab. The Pagri is a Sikh headdress -not Muslim and I wish people would learn simple geography and stop confusing them.
I don't think this program's a bad thing. People say the same thing every time a new techology comes out. What about the artists? This will cut into their ability to find work/sell their work/ blah blah blah... The thing is, there are artists out there who can't write worth a lick. And their are writers out there who can't draw worth a damn. A program like this allows a writer, or a student, or whoever --a chance to make their own comic/manga. Part of the decline in manga I believe comes from a formulaic presentation of characters and a lack of innovation. No one ever complains about the artwork --rarely. It's always the story that they complain about. I think that this opens the world of manga to writers and storytellers who may not have ever gotten any kind of look because they can't draw. Personally, I want it because my daughter and I make stories but neither of us are particularly good artists. (She's 10, by the way.)Something like this seems to be a fun way for us to share some time together making stories. I can't wait for the English language version.
