Red Monaca's Interests

General

I mostly spend my time reading (things scholarly and otherwise, like manga), writing, and researching.

Music

I mostly listen to protest songs, post-rock, and psytrance. (You can visit my RYM account here.)

Movies

I watch a large amount of films, with great variety. I am primarily interested in Japanese animation films (both mainstream and experimental) and genre films like crime, action, horror, and the like. (You can visit my Letterboxd account below in my links.)

Television

I don't watch much anime at the moment, but my all-time favorites are Evangelion, Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei, Haruhi Suzumiya, Girls' Last Tour, Gosick, Madoka Magica, and PSYCHO-PASS.

Books

I devote my time reading non-fiction, scholarly books, centering around the topics I'm interested in, or related to the areas of my research: continental philosophy (phenomenology, deconstruction, structuralism, etc.), technology, psychoanalysis, and Marxism (and critical theory in general). In the case of fiction, meanwhile, the kind of horror written by Lovecraft, Ligotti, and the New Weird is my vibe. (You can visit my Goodreads account here, which is currently under construction.)

Heroes

I do not do idol-worship, with the sole exception of Jacques Derrida. He's the embodiment of coolness.

Oooooo a philosophy buff! I'm interested in the philosophy of human behaviors and societal norms lol. I don't do it because I'm smart tho, I'm pretty dumb actually. It's all just the result of me noticing something about people and overthinking it lul

That's pretty cool! I hope that we could have discussions about your thoughts on things when the opportunity comes!

Thanks for the request! Really insightful blog you have. I especially appreciate that you have a couple blog posts dedicated to translations of Filipino activist songs. During dark times, such a thing puts a smile on your face. On a kind of related tangent, reaaaally wish I could see the Dekada '70 musical.

Thanks for accepting it! And same here too, even though I don't have the money for it xD

One of my research areas atm is Serial Experiments Lain (attempting to explain it using Marxist concepts), so you can ask my any questions related to that

thanks for the add (from a month ago so i hope you remember!) what are your favorite manga series or mangaka?

Report Comment



Apologies, I may have forgotten that I've sent you a friend request

My favorites mostly gravitate around fantasy, which are usually non-serious isekai stories or worldbuilding-focused fantasy stories. Although I'm not averse to manga outside of that genre (like Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai and We Shall Discuss Ethics), I tend to not go outside my comfort zone.

by Red Monaca; ; Report

isekai is really fun to turn your brain off to (in most cases) ^.^ .. i cant think of too many worldbuilding series but do you have recommendations?
