Alexia Blair


Hello all!  My name is Alexia and I am a history major in my last year at the College of William and Mary.  When I was little, I had been watching television at my aunt’s house in Athens, Greece.  Lo and behold, after a few channel changes I had come across a style of animation I had never seen before.  The characters were exciting, cute, and fun!  At the time I had thought to myself, ‘Why do they have such big, pretty, expressive eyes?  Are there more cartoons like this?’  It was the first time I had ever seen something like Sailor Moon.  Since then I have taken an active interest not only in knowing more about Japanese animation, but also the culture and the language as a whole.
