The genre as a concept arises from the accrual of texts and conventions. This includes texts and conventions both within a specific genre and texts and conventions in otherwise unrelated genres. The addition, transformation, variation, alteration, and/or reproduction of these texts and conventions causes the genres to shift in composition, creating a malleable form which can vary significantly from viewer to viewer and when looked at during different historical contexts.

I never followed the anime or manga and because of the hideous character designs I probably never will, but I’m glad I was able to enjoy the drama. I think these kinds of things are best when marathoned vs weekly watching anyway.
Came back to NYC today and was reminded how much I miss the super clean Japanese subway stations vs the dirty full of piss stank in the NY ones.

I hate you New York, but on the other hand, the thought of living in Japan sends shivers of horror down my spine. Anyways what the real point of this post is…more pics! xD
