Annotated Anime: Tiger Mask W episodes 17-19

Tiger Mask W seems to have an ongoing struggle with itself. It seems to keep coming off the rails more times than the mine cart in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It sometimes looks like the animators are entertaining themselves with in-jokes than putting on a show. Show More Summary

Norigami Taco's sushi tacos sound like an intriguing combination

I might've said this before, but I'm a huge fan of cuisines that combines things that many people would classify as a terrible mix. One of these special combos is Norigami Taco's tacos that feature shells made out of fried tempura seaweed. From sushi ingredients to ramen and normal taco content, I'm tempted to try out Norigami's delicacy. Show More Summary

There is much to anticipate while living in Japan

Starting life in a new country is often nerve racking. There is a lot of getting used to; a new environment, new culture, new ways of doing things and of course for Japan, a completely new language. Often, the simplest things you used to do with ease in your home country becomes immensely complicated and difficult here. Show More Summary

Glamour in an old Tokyo shopping street

Looking at these pages, or indeed my portfolio site, it’d be fairly easy to assume that the average age in Japan is about 82, which obviously isn’t true. Well, not yet, anyway.

I’m surprised that in Q5 mayonnaise is not on the list of disliked ingredients; I like a potato pizza, but usually it comes with lots of mayo and corn, and Pizza La in particular seem to drown just about everything they do in mayo.
