It’s an erratically rainy season in the country, pouring and flash-flooding in concrete creases and potholes. Or not. Actually, I was just describing yesternight’s weather. Terrible, it was.

But there’s still something warm and bright to look forward to that can be compared to a hot summer’s day (?) or like a midsummer night’s dream (?) or— Okay, okay I’m not good with playing with words like Shakespeare! So, let’s just leave it to the experts.

So, the University of the Philippines’ Department of English and Comparative Literature (with, probably surely some help from UP Anime and Manga Enthusiasts) is to blame for these three amazing opportunities to talk about art, literature, Shakespeare, maybe Japanese culture too, and everything – wow, that’s a lot – in between. Thank you, UP.

Fans, dust the cobwebs off your Code Geass corners because you can have a decent discussion now.
