Introduction I am a blogger, library assistant, historian and have been for a long time the editor-in-chief for a magazine about Japanese media and popular culture. I live in my little shell, my safe-house, observing the world from the middle of its mediatic web. Here I will comment and rant about everything but mostly about culture: anime & manga, cats & flowers, cinema & photography, history & science-fiction, Japan & technology, library & books, life & its many absurdities, etc. Beware: this blog WILL be bilingual! As for the usual disclaimer, this is my personal blog therefore the opinions expressed herein are mine only and do not necessarily represent those of my employers, associates, governments or any other people of this planet.
