links to roundtable criticism
at The Hooded Utilitarian of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

isn't all it's cracked up to be
. [short version - whitewashed France, minus immigrants.])

02:17 pm - P.S.
Small migraine. Went home from work. Have recently been taking Relpax at work and staying, mostly because low on sick leave, but decided to go home today - not like I was getting anything done at work anyway. :)
Kitten approves, as he thinks he's been low on snuggling time.

Three things about yokai make a post, right?
First, I posted some time back about Pandemonium and Parade: Japanese Monsters and the Culture of Yokai
, by Michael Dylan Foster, which is a scholarly look at the phenomenon of yokai, or spirits/monsters from Japan.( Read more...Collapse )
Second, a couple of weeks ago I was in the bookstore stocking up on later volumes of Naruto
, when I came across a manga I'd never heard of called Yokaiden 1
, by Nina Matsumoto. ( Read more...Collapse )
Thirdly, I have the blog Hot Fictional GUys
on my Bloglines blogroll, and I've been saving this show for a rainy day. Back in January, HFG posted a tribute to the guys of Natsume Yuujinchou
, a show about yokai currently airing in Japan. ( Read more...Collapse )
Fourth in my list of three things is a manga I bought a while back and never got around to posting about. Ghost Slayers Ayashi Volume 1 ( Read more...Collapse )
Fifth in my increasingly-inaccurately-named list of three things is Antique Gift Shop
, volume 7. ( (no spoilers)Collapse )
And now I'm going to go watch episode 2 of Natsume Yuujinchou
* Which has SOLD OUT to THE MAN in order not to get totally sued, which I can't blame them for, and thus brings us cool LEGAL anime now. I shall have to figure out where I left off in watching Bleach
and start making googly eyes at my f-list, since I can't get it through Crunchyroll anymore. :)
