I don't know if you noticed, but there is something particular about the picture in my profile.
On my right cheek, there is a green star and on my left a red tear. The green star is maybe hard to see though.
This is the usual make-up of Hisoka, one of my favorite characters from the manga Hunter x Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi.
Manga are the japanese version of comics and there are millions of them, about any subject that you can possibly come up with. They form a substantial part of japanese pop culture.
Hunter x Hunter is particular though. The genre to which it belongs is nevertheless pretty common: the adventure manga (shounen adventure manga to be exact). But the author develops the story in totally unexpected ways, using the clichés of the genre to his advantage and to our surprise and joy!
Anyway, what's so particular about Hisoka? Well, he's a kind of psychopath illusionist. He gets sexually aroused when confronted to strong opponents. A totally twisted character. But he's not just an ordinary pervert. He's very cunning, a master liar, very charismatic, a total stud. One of my favorite quotes:
"In this world, nothing is impossible for the magician!"
