Paranoia Girls, an experimental illustrated story written by Parick Macias and drawn by Yunico Uchiyama is now being shared through Wattpad (it was running on Tumblr), and as they explain, “the text for Wattpad will contain revisions and should be considered a 2.0 version.”

Where’s the best place to get your Patrick Macias fix these days? The action is happening over at Wattpad, in the form of his “Mondo Tokyo: Snapshots from Inside Japanese Subculture” series of mini essays about aspects of Japan culture he’s been taking in over the years.

I wanted to start with some tonkatsu spaghetti at Nobu but it was unfortunately closed, […]
There’s a new Néojaponisme podcast up, featuring Marxy and Patrick Macias discussing Tokyo fashion, past and present. Sometime in November, Marxy of Néojaponisme and Patrick Macias — author of such books as Cruising the Anime City: An Otaku Guide to Neo Tokyo and Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno: Tokyo Teen Fashion Subculture Handbook — met in Inokashira […]
