ikam.jpg Over at shmup blog Shoot The Core, they've linked so some awesome-looking pictures from a Japanese-sourced Ikaruga manga which we had no idea existed.

Webmaster Posty simply comments: "Courtesy of the Shmups.com forum, here are some pics of the Ikaruga manga, created by cantHUE. These look absolutely beautiful, and unfortunately I know very little about them, since they are extremely difficult to acquire outside of Japan. If anyone can get their hands on some copies, shoot me an email!"

There's also a link to the cantHUE website from whence the manga originated - these are unofficial, right? Japanese speakers can intercede here! Also... can anyone else recommend any video game-related manga with particularly fine art? I think someone said the Kingdom Hearts official manga was on the fetching side, from memory.
