Ripe Mangoes is a space where I write reviews, essays and analysis on various forms of entertainment. While the website was initially created to discus manga, a form of graphic novel, it soon expanded to video games and animation among other things.
Some of my writing from Ripe Mangoes has also been adapted into Youtube videos. As a way to further develop my writing, I enjoy testing it out within different mediums.
I look at a collection of short stories by Satoshi Kon, one of animation's most prolific figures.
I discuss the cult classic film by legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki, and what makes it so iconic.
Craig Thompson's autobiographical piece on first loves and adolescence proves to be a highly compelling read.
