Since I was a little kid, I have always wanted to go to Tokyo. My father was in the service, and he used to send me letters, photos, and money from his travels around Asia. Before “Adult Swim” on Cartoon Network, I would watch anime on the Sci-Fi channel and dream of a world full of tradition but at the same time a world dedicated to change. Advanced technology….magic….cool fighting moves

As I grew older, I began to learn more about Japan’s culture. I became more interested in some of the images of technology that I had only seen in anime like commercial space travel. I’m in my third year of college now at my dream school, and there’s this emptiness that I have. Tokyo is now a Mecca for me. Hopefully, I will travel there in the next year and find what I’m looking for…whatever that may be.

In the mean time, I’ll blog about Japanese pop culture as it relates to what is going on in the States. This blog is for a journalism class that I’m enrolled in this semester. I’ll comment on technology, anime, video games, fashion and music. I’ll warn you that I’m not on geek status yet so my knowledge is still limited to that of an amateur otaku.

I actually watched my first anime on Sci-Fi too. Do you remember Galaxy Express 999? Classic anime, and the reason I started watching. Great site btw!
