March of the Emperor

because in France March of the Penguins was titled La Marche de l'Empereur.

This has made my *month*. My month was already happy because Motohashi Keiko (yeah, Third Reich Motohashi Keiko, she of the excessively pretty men) has a weird tales supernatural series ongoing in Nemuki involving long-haired Chinese deities-of-some-description, red dragons, blond Japanese and an art style even more to my tastes than Beauty and the Beast. Yes the long-haired Chinese guy in a cheongsam/ qipao is a staple of manga, even if the thing hasn't been worn regularly in China itself since before this obasan was born. Why not? It's a sexy garment, but most of the period when it was worn guys shaved their heads in the ghastly Qing fashion. Japanese mangaka are merely compensating for that historical aesthetic injustce.
