First Post!

Hi, I’m danielgaikokujin, here to review and present Japanese films and books which I love, but also to try to pass on some of my knowledge on Japan and Japanese culture.

I was inspired to start this in response to how the western scene of interest in Japan is dominated by a crowd that, in a nutshell, sees manga and anime as the most interesting and important form of Japanese media. And there’s also people that get way too obsessed with anime. Don’t get me wrong. I love manga and anime…but I love Japanese Film and Literature more.

Can you dig it?
