I stumbled upon this nifty article about the interview with Jonah Lehrer in which he discussed the correlation of cities to that of productivity of the people living in it. While it’s certainly not conclusive, it had some merits. He said a certain statement which made me think of Durarara right away – because of its setting, Ikebukuro, and how it was depicted. Okay, maybe I typed “anime” in the title but this post is generally about DRRR.
In lieu of the August 1 Memorial Day of Digimon, I marathoned the first and second seasons of Digimon. Watching it again made me notice the theme of parallelism and juxtaposition of the two worlds, namely the Digital World and the Physical World. The state of one reflects the state of the other. If there’s a disturbance existing in the Digital World, then it would probably create a disturbance as well in the Physical World. Whenever I think of this, I can’t help but associate it to Summer Wars (not just because of Mamoru Hosoda).
