Meet the Mayor: Tokyo Kid

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

Tokyo Kid
Chris Ferrari

Do you consider yourself mayor of anime for all of Boston?
Well, you can find anime and manga at comic-book stores, but Tokyo Kid has got so much you're not going to find anywhere else. There's always new stuff coming in that's just debuting stateside.

How messed up is The End of Evangelion?
That's one of my all-time favorites. The newer ones have actual conclusions. The Gainax building got graffiti-tagged when the original came out and it didn't have an ending. They were getting death threats.

Didn't the writer go off his meds, like, halfway through?
That's why everyone in the series has a personality or mental disorder.

Misato seemed to have it together.
Yeah, except for making out with a 14-year-old at the end.

But when you're about to die, I imagine your first impulse is to make out with whoever's around.
I'll give you that much.

My roommate reads Inuyasha fan-fiction erotica. Is there anything wrong with that?
There's nothing wrong with a little creepy fan fiction. It's written by some guy in his basement watching too much anime. He's like, "I'm going to write an ending to this that I can . . . " -- yeah.
