Harvey...?

(I don't care how gentle he is. Ordinary rabbits bite off fingers. That rabbit could bite off an arm.)

Finished Kurotsubaki 8. What a wonderful resource that is for a certain kind of vocabulary-- colour, textiles, the theatre, the geisha world. It's not a stunning dizzy-making series like Karin-- dragons! white tigers! pearl spirits! warriors! immortals! evil bishounen! genocide!-- but it has its solid pleasures. And is almost as clouds and willow haze as Rainy Willow or Mushishi, of which I just read 3 in English. The translation continues to be off enough to weird me; truly, all this weird stuff is much more normal in Japanese.
