About Touka
"Beyond the window, some kind of small, black thing shot
across the sky. A bird, possibly. Or it might have been
someone's soul being blown to the far side of the world."

Haruki Murakami, 1Q84.

Hello there. I'm Touka, or rather, a mega fan of Touka from Utawarerumono and couldn't think of a better username when registering and that's what I go by now. I've been around here for quite a while, and used to help moderate the manga database in 2011 and '12. Unfortunately, due to my life outside of the internet, I don't pop by as often anymore. But by all means, leave me a message if you want to chat. I might take a while to reply, but I'm always happy to talk.

The websites I use outside of MyAnimeList mainly consist of tumblr and, so feel free to contact me on those if you want to, as well. I also used to use deviantART occasionally, but don't anymore. You can however still see my old manga collection (which has grown somewhat since I moved - really need to update that image!) and my one and only cosplay. I'm also on twitter, but not so much these days.

I'm a huge fan of Japanese cinema and Haruki Murakami novels. If you share an interest in the cinematic works of the Japanese nation, then please join the Cinema of Japan club. We'd love to have you! I also help manage the Avatar club (which would also love to have you) and I maintain a tumblr dedicated to the work of mangaka Tayio Matsumoto. If you're a fan or just want to see some wonderful manga illustrations on your dashboard, then please check it out.

Oh, well it is good to know that the anime was faithful to the manga, because the anime was great (except those animations).

The manga is kinda short (only 50+ chapters) so I don't mind to read it (although I don't think I will read so soon).

I love manga more than anime, and I will give a try to see the art style and the play style, ping pong the animation is one of my favorite anime this year and I am sure to read the manga would be great.

Thanks for your help!

Hey there, saw your review on ping pong a lot of time ago.
I finished ping pong the animation (which was, very good) and I was wondering if I should read the manga too. Did you watch the anime? and if you did, do you think that I should read the manga?

Hmm, kinda hard to say as I just know the anime source.Well since most people talk about the animation, lets begin with that.From one point its rather unique to see realistic drawen characters (for exempel Aku no Hana) ,however I feel that the anime sometimes feels like a totall mass of curves and not even one stright of proper human anatomy is seen.Other than thet I feel the strongest point of the show are the characters.My personal favorite currently is China (just becouse its rare to see a foreigner in anime) and Smile to some extent...The music is mediocre but I kinda fall in love with the opening.So my final verdict about the current show is probably amazing source material (might check the manga), a good execution for the budget and to see an anime like this one is rather rare...might give it a 7 or 8 dapening on how it goes on...(btw sry for my bad english).Ohh and while I am at it could you recommend an anime/manga where I can just chill, as I feel rather stressed from the seinen manga/anime I watch usuely .

I will definitely have to check them out. Thanks for the response.

Hey man I just finished end of evangelion and was wondering if you think that the rebuild series is a must see. I would appreciate any kind of advice or opinion on the matter.

RabbytX | 05-22-14, 10:37 AM
Hello Touka, just an comment passing by...However what are your toughts of ping pon the animation curently ?

Vensito | 03-01-14, 11:58 AM
That's life man, good to hear you're in good health though. You still at uni? It's been awhile since we last chatted on here so I kinda wanna hear what you've been up to.

I've been working mostly for awhile now. Just doing a bunch of testing for software and electrical equipment. It might not sound grandiose but I'm damn good at it. My boss recommended me for a contracting job for Microsoft to do some testing for them but I don't think I got the position. They were looking for someone with more experience in Data Analysis and Optical Physics which I don't have yet. Other than that I'm just kicking back and getting sleep when I can. Not enough time for anime/manga man.

Speaking of which, how's your anime life been?

Sorry if this comment seems like it's coming out of nowhere but I just wanted to say thank you.. I've been a fan of your reviews for the longest time ( +4 years! ) I started reading manga thanks to you after noticing a comment you posted somewhere about Urasawa Naoki so I decided to check out his works and now he's my favorite author of all time!

Also, the old picture you used to put in your profile caught my interest for the longest time.. took me a while to know that it was actually Mari from the Rebuild of Eva! I watched the show soon after and it became my favorite anime xD

So I just wanted to say thanks for all the great reviews you've offered to the MAL community so far and please keep up the great work.

Hey, how you been?

Hmm nice Redline review. I have zero interest whatsoever in a racing anime, but after reading your review I may just watch it for great animation and experience :)

Thank you for accepting my friend request.
I'm happy to meet another fan of 20th Century Boys. ^^
It's the best manga that I've ever read.

Josh- | 01-17-14, 2:15 PM
Wind-Up Bird is my favourite, although I have actually only read that and Dance Dance Dance. I'm expecting to like Kafka on the Shore a lot, from what others have told me about it.

Josh- | 01-16-14, 1:53 PM
Nice. I haven't read Norwegian Wood or Sputnik Sweetheart yet, but I will get around to them eventually. Kafka on the Shore is next on my list and then probably Norwegian Wood.

This is my goodreads.

Hello there fellow Murakami fan. Do you have a goodreads account by any chance?
