Micro.blog’s #1 anime nerd!

A consistently depressed journalism student who can’t figure out his beat, studying at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Chuunibyou writer, anime blogger, web designer, old tech nerd, Linux freak, amateur photographer and casual Touhou player. When I grow up I wanna be a Gonzo!

Yukkuri?

Yukkuri are these… things. They’re ‘cursed’ Manjū buns based on characters from the Touhou Project. Some think they’re creepy and disgusting, I think they’re adorable.

The name comes from the ascii image that spawned them on Japanese imageboard 2chan/Futaba:

At the reader they scream “YUKKURI SHITE ITTE NE!”(“TAKE IT EASY!”). Taking it easy is what I hope to do with this blog.
