I’ve been writing for anime magazines for over 3 decades since the late 80s. From adults to children, shonen to shojo, I’ll watch anything no matter the genre. I’m especially into about sci-fi fantasies and magical girl anime. However, I tend to distance myself from super-popular shows. Some of my favorite 2017 anime were ’Sagrada Reset’, ‘Kado: the Right Answer’ and ‘Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid’. I originally aimed to be a mangaka and was in my manga research club at university, so I know a lot about manga too. I’ve been friends with anime director Tensai Okamura since university.
