Photo of the Week: Rain and Writing in Toronto

Pictured above: the view from an office at York University. It’s been raining the past few days in late May in Toronto, Canada, but I’ve been enjoying the view at least as I write a chapter for an upcoming edited collection of essays on the popular tv show Steven Universe. My chapter explores the anime influences of the show, in particular Kunihiko Ikuhara’s Revolutionary Girl Utena. The rain keeps me calm and focused on this project, with the first chapter draft due at the end of the summer.
