Pokémon Artist Creates '2.5D Manga', And It's Incredible

Pokémon Artist Creates

Manga is flat. It's on printed paper. It's two-dimensional. This manga is somewhat different and totally wonderful.

As pointed out by Get News, this "2.5D manga" was created by an artist named Muneo Saito.

Besides working as a manga artist on several comics published in Weekly Shonen Sunday and CoroCoro Comic, Saito did the manga Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys. Saito has also worked at Game Freak (more here), doing Pokémon designs since the second generation.
