Manga ping pong comic books are book. Ken Park introduced us to the work of Taiyō Matsumoto – one of the greatest manga artists in Japan. He made his debut in 1986 in the anthology Afternoon, with the short story Straight. His surrealist designs may remind you of Hayao Miyazaki and his most celebrated anime movie, Spirited Away.
Well table tennis lovers, we thought you would appreciate one of his series in particular which traces the growth and friendship of two very different high-school ping-pong players. Ping Pong (“Pingu-Pongu”) was turned into a feature film in 2002. You can see more artwork on AnyManga.
– What do you think of the artwork? Comments under this post please.
