The Manga-Loving PM

      Comments Off on The Manga-Loving PM

Tara Aso, Japan’s newly-designated Prime Minister, has acquired a somewhat scary band of followers in the Akihabara district due to his reputation as a manga fan. Apparently he is particularly fond of Rozen Maiden.

Of course I wish him well, but I’m not sure that Shinku, Suigintou and Suiseiseki will be much help in dealing with a shaky economy, an upper house controlled by the opposition, and a sclerotic ruling party infested with cronyism.
