So, I came across this intriguing branch of anime/manga on my internet travels today and thought I'd share and discuss it with you lot. I've got to warn you now - you will potentially find images of a sexual nature/naked drawn women in the links I post, so I'll say it's NSFW. I'll maintain that I have no sexual interest in these pics. I find the Japanese an intriguing bunch and the vast number of things that turn people on pretty interesting. Anyway, here's the gist - "Koonago is a branch of anime and manga, especially hentai, that has sprung up based around the concept of shrinking mature age women to sizes anywhere between two feet high and near-microscopic size." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koonago Interesting so far? Well, there's a dark side. Shouldn't come as much of a shock since it's mainly a Japanese thing, right? "The darker forms of Koonago artwork will depict such women being cut up or eaten provided they are toy size or smaller. One thing all Koonago artwork makes sure to depict is that clothing doesn't shrink with the woman in question." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koonago I'm not too keen on these from an art point of view. Some are very impressive, but I don't like gory art. I'm thinking of my dream home and putting pictures on the wall. The ones that I find most pleasing, personally are the ones where the people look pained and are being taken advantage of by full sized humans. Where they're a Toy. This is one of the different branches of Koonago, apparently. So far on my travels, I've stumbled across: Shrinking women (usually a cartoon where the womans clothes fall of her) Toy women Dark Pet Mostly the women are naked or the situation is sexual. I haven't seen any shrunken men yet, but I guess it's out there.
