07-22-2003, 02:59 AM
I was catching up on my anime news when i came upon this info....
From animenation.com:

"TOKYOPOP to Sponsor Courtney Love's Manga -
Vocalist and actress Courtney Love will be writing a rock & roll magical girl "manga" illustrated by Japanese artists Ai Yazawa and D.J. Milky. TOKYOPOP will publish Love's "Princess Ai" next year."

Very interesting ne? Im just looking forward to any more Ai Yazawa stuff !! ^_^

07-22-2003, 12:28 PM
whoa....seems really....really weird.

I'd love some more Ai Yazawa work too! :D Though...I never liked Courtney Love... :P

07-22-2003, 12:57 PM
Hm... I wonder how that'll turn out... I guess when it ends up in Barnes and Nobles or Borders I'll see how it looks.

07-22-2003, 02:11 PM
O_o Ack, no Ai-sensei... not with Courtney Love of all people... ~_~;;; *idly weeps*

07-22-2003, 03:32 PM
oh gawd, please no....o_O;; I luv Ai Yazawa, but no Courtney Love.

07-22-2003, 09:29 PM
That's weird...I mean, I don't mind (though I'm not a fan of Ms.Love's often times overly-bitchy attitude), but I never figured she was into that sort of thing. O.o

07-23-2003, 04:26 PM
Hmmm... Well, Hole is one of my favorite bands, so I love Courtney, but I must admit I'm a little skeptical about her being able to write a good manga. Ai Yazawa is my idol, though, so if she trusts Courtney enough to want to work with her I'm going to keep an open mind about it! I'm looking forward to this...

*tilts head* Whose Courtney Love?

07-23-2003, 07:17 PM
O_o; I heard about this a few days ago. Quite odd that of all people Courtney Love would make a manga. But ah well - I'll judge how good it is when it comes out.

Kortnie~ Courtney Love is the widow of Kurt Cobain and the leader of a band named Hole. She's an actress too I think.

O.o well even if it sucks i can still look at the pretty pictures! :D

I like Ai Yazawa but I have never heard of courtney love

07-24-2003, 02:41 PM
I know Courtney love but never have heard of Ai Yazawa, heh so I guess we're opposites.

Thanks Tenjou! ^^;

I dunno why would Ai Yazawa want to make a manga with Courtney Love if she's so terrible?

07-24-2003, 11:25 PM
She isnt so terrible... but it just does seem kinda weird cause I wouldnt expect her to be interested in making manga

07-24-2003, 11:40 PM
Hm...don't know what to really think. I never thought in a million years that Courtney Love would dig that sorta thing. I wouldn't be surprised that Ai Yawaza would team up with her.

I think her music is okay. I don't really like her attitude all too well. I'll have to make my final judgement call when I see the manga myself.

07-28-2003, 12:59 PM
I heard somewhere that for a while Courtney lived in Japan and that's when she got into manga. But that could just be a rumor, who knows? Anyway, overlooking the whole drug thing, Courtney actually really reminds me of the type of people Ai tends to write about in her stories. I mean, she's rock star, for one, and some of the clothes I've seen her wear (back in her earlier days, anyway) actually look a lot like the style of Ai's characters. So yeah... it's kinda been bothering me when people act really shocked about ai working with her. Someone actually said she felt sorry for Ai. It was Ai's choice, and she's probably a fan of Courtney, or at least respects her. I really don't see what's so bad about Courtney anyway. I really admire her. I mean, not the whole drug thing... But she's a really strong person and she does exactly what she wants. Plus, look at the way she's grown over the years and everything she's had to deal with... Ok I'm done.

Jehuty, Ai Yazawa is the mangaka of Paradise Kiss.

O_O This is news to me. It should be interesting, at the very least, and it will mean more of Ai Yazawa's gorgeous artwork so it can't be a bad thing. ^_^ And if Courtney Love is going through the trouble of writing a manga, it probably (hopefully) means she knows something about it, and a little about the general themes that appear in manga. And if it's *really* awful we can hope that Tokyopop will step in and offer a little advice.

Official info on the manga XD

08-04-2003, 02:38 PM
i respect courtney love and i'm a huge fan of ai yazawa so i'm definitely going to check this manga out. maybe the story sucks, maybe it'll be amazing, but i know that art is going to be great and i think that's reason enough to give it a chance.

i'll read the manga first before i pass judgement.

that's great news!
I love Courtney Love very much!
I've read her Bio and it was really interesting, she is such an interesting person and very creative. This manga is going rock!
*Which japan manga magazine is it going to run or just at tokyopop?

08-05-2003, 02:18 AM
Holy shizzers!! WOW!! o_O!!!! that's all i can say!!!

08-05-2003, 03:24 AM
I want to be a rock star now, that way I can approach a mangaka to collaborate with them just because I really like manga...not fair

08-08-2003, 08:15 PM
Hmm..Courtney Love doing manga...seems kind of odd, I never really cared for her, but I'll see how it comes out. She must be pretty cool if shes into this dorky stuff like all of us :D ::does "YAY FOR ANIME GEEKS" dance::

08-16-2003, 05:23 PM
Right...Courtney Love..and a rock and roll magical girl manga....I'm sure that manga will be really...erm interesting.

01-26-2004, 12:38 AM
Wahoo!! Tokyopop has a release date and whatnot up fo rthe manga http://www.tokyopop.com/dbpage.php?page=product&productid=1931
I'm excited!!!

01-28-2004, 05:05 PM
I'm glad that Ai Yazawa has a new manga that will be available in NA! ^o^ I just hope Courtney Love gets her addictions over once and for all because it's obviously not healthy for her body. Plus it may delay the publishing...? =/
