Digital history: Manga on CD

You know something comes of age when people start writing its history—and parts of it start to look quaint. At the Masters of Manga website, Izumi Matsumoto (the creator of Kimagure Orange Road, which has a following here despite never being translated) talks about his experimentation with digital manga. He gave it a shot in 1996, simply because he wanted to do his manga in color, and it looked great on the screen, but he chose to go with CD-ROM rather than the internet as a means of distribution and... Oh well. The video is just two and a half minutes but it makes interesting viewing so it's well worth a stop.
