Just as man in Plato's Allegory of the Cave departs into the world I have returned to the world of JapAnimation after a long and fruitful digression into literature and film. As Arnold Schwarzenegger says in Terminator 2 I will be back and im back! Reading book and watching movies has taught me much of The World (jojo), namely how much more art exists outside of animation… and how much better it can be.
