More about me

Additionally to the main page about me, I list here my current cultural interests.

Japanese literature

Ascendance of a Bookworm
(light novel)

A book-lover is reincarnated in a fantasy world where books are not accessible to commoners. She begins making books for her and others.

Berserk

A dark story, about demons that rule the world, and an orphan hero with a sword.

The golden age arc makes it the best manga of all time.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

In a post-apocalyptic world, a strange forest is growing and seems to destroy all humanity.

Written by Hayao Miyazaki, this manga led to the animated film adaptation.

A selection of my favorite animes

See MyAnimeList for a complete list.

Code Geass
(R1 & R2)

Hero gets a power (Geass) that makes him able to give one forced order to anyone.

This is my favorite anime. Not the most intelligent, but I watched it twice to make sure it was the best!

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World)

A dystopia where children get powers and are learning to get control over these.

The most intelligent anime I've seen. Starts slowly but becomes really nice.

Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (Legend of the Galactic Heroes)

This is a story of real star wars. All the episodes are rich of content compared to newer animes.

Don't mind poor graphics!

Monster

A doctor saved a boy, that happens to be a serial killer. That doctor pursues him for revenge, as he is the primary suspect of investigations.

Fate/Zero

A prequel to Fate/stay night, by Gen Urobuchi. The Holy Grail War is a contest between mages, the winner having their wish granted. Each mage (Master) summons a hero (Servant) that fights in their place.

Durarara!! & x2

Young ones in mafia stuff, an antihero, a few supernatural characters.

Cowboy Bebop

A very nice space opera.

Mirai Nikki (Future Diary)

God is dying and makes a contest to find his successor. Each player gets a power through their phone and needs to kill each other. Two children team-up.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

A utopia that warns of the danger of transhumanism. What if you could hack into brains?

Favorite TV series

Good thinking about what AI is or might become.

Alias

Rambaldi <o>

Good TV series if you like action, espionage and myths.
