To start, 2-D Teleidoscope is an anime blog.
Paul Graham says that this is the age of the essay, so that’s what I do: I write mini-essays about modern Japanese visual culture.
As a rule, I try to relate anime to something else, which could be a theory or book, or it could be a dessert recipe. Anime and manga are not closed systems; they are connected to a wider world of interesting things, which becomes apparent if you just take a moment to look.
Whether or not the results are insightful, I’ll leave up to you. But I do love comments.
Who I am:
Formerly an English teacher in Tottori Prefecture, Japan, now a poor writer living in Southern California. I like vanilla bean ice cream, cappuccino and old books.
My favorite anime is Video Girl Ai. Beyond that, I try not to be picky, but that doesn’t always work.
