Welcome to the new forum for Platinum titles! This will be the place not only to discuss past titles Speed Racer and Swallowing the Earth, but also our latest license, Barbara, and future Kickstarter-driven classic manga.

Instead of making a new forum, i'm just gonna write my suggestion here.

"Rojin-Z" by Katsuhiro Otomo (creator of Akira) . It's a satire about health care for the elderly.

Is there a manga version of Roujin Z? I thought it was just a movie.

In any case, more Katsuhiro Otomo manga in English would be great. I have an old copy of Domu from Dark Horse Comics (now out of print, I believe), and I've always found the descriptions of early Otomo manga in the introduction/preface to the book to be tantalizing.

1. "Billy bat" & "Master Keaton" by Naoki Urasawa. Any unpublished Urasawa title would make a great platinum title! Also "Master Keaton" recently is getting republished.

2. "Memories" by Katsuhiro otomo. I remember seeing the movie a couple years ago. Memories was also published in english sometime in the 90s according to amazon ----> http://www.amazon.com/Katsuhiro-Otomos-Memories/dp/B003W3SXIS/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1345423360&sr=1-5&keywords=memories+otomo

3. "Kaikisen" by Satoshi Kon. The same anime director that died recently.
