Eico Hanamura's 60's Girl Shoujo Comics Reborn in Paris


Eico Hanamura is the pioneer behind the illustrious full-lashed shoujo girl. I found an amazing interview that illustrates how her vintage prints came to adorn high-end Parisian goods 40 years later. I love old shoujo manga! Candy Candy! Georgie! You would be amazed at how incredible and intense the storylines are despite the fluffy illustrations. Click here to read full interview.
