Okay. Here I go, feeding the trolls in the flames. Usually, I let things pass. But I just… okay, I just don’t get it. Some of you may remember my Anime News Editorial about Nick Simmons, when he was accused of plagiarism from sources such as Tite Kubo’s ever-so-famous Bleach manga. Somehow, in some MAGICAL Read the Rest…

I hadn’t updated with the last bit of my Japan trip due to the fact that the last hostel for the last night in Tokyo didn’t have wi-fi for my laptop to connect to. Now, about a week later, I am finally home. I think it would be quite a bit difficult for me to Read the Rest…

Yesterday morning, the Japanese lady who had been staying with us since we got here had to leave. But she stopped to wake me up to give me a gift of some blueberry candy, and cold compress sheets for my feet! How thoughtful of her! And then she left. I wanted to tell her not Read the Rest…

Classic Tokyo

Yesterday morning started with a trek to Asakusa, a district in the North-East portion of Tokyo. We ate breakfast there, and visited Sensou-ji temple, a Buddhist shrine, and the oldest in Tokyo. It’s probably even the most famous. I had been there three or four times before, but it never gets old. Sadly, the outside Read the Rest…
