Comicalu: A Neat Collection of Manga-Inspired Products

by Hazel Chua

In my native language, “manga” (pronounced mang-ga) translates to “mango.” So whenever I’d hear someone say that they loved reading manga, I’d be puzzled because, really, who reads fruit? I finally figured out what manga was when I was in high school after much embarrassment and after living in sheer ignorance for so long.


That said, I have developed an appreciation for manga over the years. A lot of people appreciate it a whole lot more than I do, which have led them to create related manga-inspired products like these plates by Mika Tsutai.

But my favorite of the bunch is Nami Mizuguchi’s Carne Vale, which is a micro-safe ceramic bone that can be stuck into a slab of meat to recreate that nostalgic and trademark comic look of chunks of meat on a bone.

Designer Eisuke Tachikawa, who designs by the name Nosigner, appreciates such art as well, which is why he’s endeavoring to create an entire site that’s dedicated on showcasing these manga-inspired products: Comicalu.

The site isn’t done yet though, so you might want to pay them a visit later on, or at least swing by their Facebook page and hit their “Like” button.
