Hello, World! My name is Emily Wells and I hail from the land of oranges, alligators, and anthropomorphic mice. I am a freshman at William and Mary majoring in Figuring It Out and a new member of the Japanese Culture and Anime clubs. I have been interested in Asia (starting with China) since elementary school, and soon started reading CLAMP manga and trying in vain to teach myself Japanese from a book. I spent most of high school watching as much anime as I could get ahold of and cosplaying at conventions with friends. Now, my aim is to not only educate myself about the country’s history and politics, but to educate others and show them that it’s a lot more than Sailor Moon, sushi, and bizarre game shows.
