I started using a new theme here on this blog: Baskerville 2, by Anders Noren. It’s the same creator from the previous theme, Lovecraft. I don’t know if this is going to be the final theme for the blog, but for now I’m more happy with it (although I also liked Wilson, also by the same author).
You can check the theme HERE, and also Wilson and Lovecraft. Other themes are available on the author’s website.
A good Sunday to everyone

SHINICHI’S A MAID MAN
A passage to another world has been discovered in the “Sea of Trees” near Mount Fuji. That other world is the Holy Eldant Empire, and it’s a full-on fantasy universe, with dragons flying through the sky and everything! The Japanese government, eager to profit from this discovery, secretly sets up a company called Amutech to promote trade by bringing otaku culture to the benighted inhabitants of this land. But wouldn’t you know it, their secret got out! Or anyway, it’s about to. And that’s bad, right?
Amutech general manager, former home security guard, and thoroughbred otaku Kanou Shinichi has a solution, and it’s so otaku it hurts: he wants to hold a magical cosplay contest and photo shoot. And in the process, he may be surprised at what he learns about the hidden talents—and the hidden past—of his personal bodyguard, Minori.
Shinichi is in for more than he bargained for (again!) in Volume 4 of Outbreak Company!
I don’t know if the problem is me, growing old and grumpy, or trailers nowadays are really too long and spoiler-filled as I think.
The Winter Olympics is happening right now, and for me this is great because I love figure skating, although I don’t watch it often. This week I watched this amazing performance by You Young to a medley: Hello (Martin Solveig, Martina Sorbara) / I Am the Best (2NE1).
After using Hugo for a while, I decided to stop using a programmer solution to blogging, and to simplify things. That’s why I’m here on WordPress now 🙂
I may be importing a few posts during the next few weeks, but I want to mostly post new content here, and I hope you enjoy.
Also, I don’t know if I’ll keep this name for the blog, but I’m not good at coming up with names for anything.
