Sean O’Hara was born in Stuttgart, West Germany during the last years of the Cold War. Both his parents served in the US Army, though his mother took an honorable discharge after his birth. His family moved to Fort Clayton, Panama in 1982, and they were still there when World War III broke out two years later.

This Is Worse Than Watching Scott Baio

For my second stab at reading Japanese, I wanted to try something a bit easier. Something where I could focus my brain on understanding the the words and grammar without having to worry about any subtlety or nuance. Which, considering my first go was about the level of The Babysitters Club, was quite a challenge to find.

After digging through Bookwalker, I found the perfect title. #element-79a0a... Read more of this blog post »

Hoo-boy... I've read some trashy manga in my time, but this one is a full-on dumpster fire. It's pure sleaze. No redeeming moral quality whatsoever.

NisiOisiN
“Every mystery novel I ever read, the great detective was such an arrogant fuck you could replace 70% of his dialogue with 'Are you stupid?' and the conversation would still make sense.”

Hitomi Kanehara
“God has to be a sadist to give people life.”
