1. Junjou Romantica
Junjou Romantica
This lens stems from my carelessness, namely my letting myself be led into a gamble that I do not foresee all the probabilities. Because of my professed dislike for Boys Love (abbreviation BL, a.k.a romance between two males), I proudly accept the bet to watch the newest BL anime, with the condit...

2. The Open Market of Groningen
The Open Market of Groningen
One of the things that caught my attention when I first came to Groningen (a city in Northeast Netherlands) is the so-called Open Market: the local merchants set up vendors and sell their wares at the two city squares Grote Markt (Dutch for "Big Market") and Vismarkt ("Fish Market"). The market m...

3. Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Mobile Suit Gundam 00
There are various reasons to pay attention to Mobile Suit Gundam 00 or Gundam 00 for short (the official pronunciation of 00 is double-oh meaning that 0 is the letter o not the number. However, double zero is way cooler in my opinion). (1) it is Gundam (mecha, especially Gundam fans will understa...

4. Best Anime Soundtracks
Best Anime Soundtracks
Like all other types of TV shows, music is an important part of anime. Anime soundtracks are second to none in quality and variety with big names of their own. In this lens is a list of my favourite anime soundtracks. They complement the anime nicely while being beautiful scores by themselves. A...

5. Broken Blade
Broken Blade
What would you do if you were the only disabled person in a world of normal people (for a given value of normalcy)? That is the fate Rygart Arrow, the protagonist of Broken Blade (a.k.a. Break Blade after the katakana of the Japanese title), finds himself in. The one-in-a-million-year "Unsorcerer...

6. Early Masters of Vietnamese Contemporary Art
Early Masters of Vietnamese Contemporary Art
Modern Vietnamese art is young: it just came into being in the late 20s of the 20th century. However, it has the masters who command respect from all connoisseurs. Those men have created niches of their own and given Vietnam its own place in the world of art. Vietnam's modern art was formed ...

8. Famous Anime Music Composer: Yoko Kanno
Famous Anime Music Composer: Yoko Kanno
I first knew Yoko Kanno and her music through the Ghost In The Shell S.A.C series and have been her fan ever since. In my impression, she is really special. She is very versatile: her works range from hard rock-ish pieces to very spiritual songs, yet have all of them something unique to her. In a...

9. The Danball Senki Franchise
The Danball Senki Franchise
Danball Senki (lit. "Cardboard War Chronicles") is a video game and anime franchise developed by Level 5. The concept is the idea of robot model kit (commonly know as "gunpla") taken to its logical conclusion: the robots do not only look cool but also are fully functional (read: having ridiculous...

11. Kenichi Suzumura
Kenichi Suzumura
Now and then, my attention (or more accurately short-termed obsession) gets on unforeseeable routes. Being in the anime fandom for quite a while, I am well aware of the seiyuu (meaning "voice actors/actresses" in Japanese. In English, this word is often used to specifically refer to Japanese voca...

12. Whistling In the Dark - My Impressions
Whistling In the Dark - My Impressions
This book was recommended to me by a friend who is very much in love with it. Although I do not see myself as a romance fan, I have nothing against the genre either. Also my friend's enthusiasm was infectious. Thus I followed his recommendation and found myself too enjoy the book. The story is s...

Jules Verne - Pioneer of Science Fiction
Writing about about submarine, world travel, space travel when such things were yet to come into existence, Jules Verne is one of the first science fiction authors in the world. It's always a delight to read his books and feel the excitement of exploration in them

14. Famous Anime Music Composer: Yuki Kajiura
Famous Anime Music Composer: Yuki Kajiura
You know that she is a force to reckon with when in the anime music industry, she is considered second only (or even equal) to the "Queen" Yoko Kanno. What is also famous about this 1965-born, German-bred lady is her not-quite-usual lifestyle, especially in a society famous for their stress on ha...

15. Underrated Manga
Underrated Manga
Have you ever seen obscure or not so famous titles that you feel deserving more? I definitely do. I know that there is no accounting for taste, but it is a bit lonely to like something that so few people know, let alone be a fan of. In addition, manga is definitely a diverse medium aimed to a wi...

20. Mawaru Penguindrum
Mawaru Penguindrum
Kunihiko Ikuhara's first series since his masterpiece Revolutionary Girl Utena a decade ago (interesting that just in Fall 2010, another Utena creator showed up with Star Driver). It is not hard to see how high the expectation and excitement is. The keywords are weird, fabulous (notice a theme?),...

21. noitaminA Shows
noitaminA Shows
Having been watching anime for a while, one of the interesting statements I have heard is "I'll watch it. It's a noitaminA show". So what is the deal? noitaminA is a time slot aimed at young women who are not heavily into anime (i.e. not "Otaku"). Thanks to the targeted demographics, adaptations ...

22. AC Milan
AC Milan
Once a Milan fan, always a Milan fan. I have been a fan of AC Milan FC ever since I knew them and this lens is dedicated to them, one of the greatest Italian clubs of all time. The club has all the markings of a legend. Success, scandals, fans, haters, conspiracies, and of course players that cha...
