Friday Focus Catch-up
We've had some interesting topics for Friday Focus this month and in January too. February kicked off with a Friday Focus that unveiled the history and truth of ninja and was followed by Katie Spicer telling us how Valentine's Day in Japan is unique. On the third week, Chris Kirkham introduced one of his favourite anime, 'Time of Eve', and Wataru Takaya also gave us his thoughts on this underground anime and some background on told what happened to the production team. We'd love your feedback on the articles so far, and suggestions for topics, too. You can comment at the end of each article, or let us know your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
