Nice profile picture, I'm actually currently reading Walser's selected stories.

Hello, sorry for my massively overdue response. I was on an trip to Wales when you posted your comment and I had intended to reply when I got back but kept putting it off and forgetting.

I do indeed like Kafka and appreciate the recommendation. I seem to have people on Goodreads who have Walser's novels rated highly. He must be one of your favourite writers if you have him as your avatar?
Unfortunately he will be and even more unfortunately is that more are added to the list (and at a greater rate) than deducted at present.

Thank you and I guess so. What led to you learning and becoming fluent in Chinese? It's not common to hear that people are fluent in it. Have you watched much Chinese cinema?
Yes, the knowledge comes after in most cases. Though there are many things I'd like to become more knowledgable in and books I'd like to read before I attempt others. Like the work of Hegel, Nick Land and Gilles Deleuze.
Although I don't label myself as a "cinephile", film is probably the medium I'm most versed in (I like Russian cinema too). By Japanese media I assume you exclusively mean anime/manga as Japan arguably had (and still greatly does) the largest and most prolific underground music/art house cinema scene in all of Asia (and for experimental music I'd contend in the world). If you are, I agree. Even with the recent popularity of Yuasa (perhaps the only mainstream anime director that could be called an auteur working today) and increase in experimental independant animation, like that of Yamamura, anime still pales in comparison artistically with other mediums like film (though I suppose film is over fifty years older).

I'm afraid I'm not very knowledgeable about or well read in manga yet. I'd very much like to be, but to me it seems like a much larger investment than anime and so much manga goes on for what seems like an Eternity and a Day. I know of some shorter experimental manga you may not have heard of, though: Yami no Hou e, Spinoza, Paranoia Star and Slow Down.

Thanks for your request.

I see you're a fellow reader too. Thus I recommend Aku no hana ; )

And since you don't have a book list in here, I'm gonna guess you haven't read them and give you another recommendation, Beckett's trilogy: Molloy, Malone Meurt and the Unnamable.


Gimme some anime to watch please!
