Something different...

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 clich├ęs 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!"
