Harakiri Schoolgirls

Andrew Lee writes in the Financial Times that the misogynistic mix of cuteness, violence and perversion prevalent in manga and anime “…must send many tourists running, their ‘Fujiyama’ image of Japan tainted for life.”

Andy, I’ve got news for you: After seeing a reproduction of Makoto Aida’s “Harakiri Schoolgirls” (detail below), I’m ready start my own Japanese poster collection.

  1. Did you eventually buy a “harakiri schoolgirls” poster?
    I am curious because I would like to buy one and it seems difficult to find. Any help would be appreciated.

  2. Me too. There were posters for sale at the NYC Armory show a couple of years ago. I didn’t get one then and have been trying to find one ever since.

    Any idea where prints for sale can be bought?
