YUK-LUEN MAN // THUROSIS
My friend for two years and a professional manga-ka; his favourite subject, as you can see below, are female robots. He is in my opinion a very skilled artist, more than he gives himself credit, and an even better friend. I advise you all to buy the first volume to his "Mecha's Heart", available in English and German from his DeviantART page. I am glad to say that I and his character, Ayaka, are a happy couple with a beautiful daughter.

ARMINIUS1871 // LUDWIG OF REICHEL
A German patriot is hard to come across any time since 1945; but he and I share a zeal for the Fatherland and his history that is often hard to come by. I do not yet know him very well but encourage you nonetheless to look at his collection of German history.
I am simply a man who is fascinated by reality. I am|
slow and rational, not one to get caught in an emotionally
charged argument. I am a man of science and of the humanities,
and my favourite subject has always been the history
of the Earth, be it during the Age of Man or the æons
before. I am very dignified and sophisticated in my habit,
and I have always had a soft spot for the antiquarian.
The late XIX and early XX century deserves its French name,
the Belle Époque.
Although I reside in the United States, I detest it, prefering
my ancestral homeland of Saxony and neighbouring Prussia
(in northern Germany). As soon as I finish with my secondary
schooling, I intend to return to the civilised side of the Atlantic
and once again inhabit my true Fatherland.
Though I am a rare German patriot, I am quite eclectic, and
I enjoy creative works spanning the entire world for thousands
of years; still, I feel a special attachment in blood and spirit
to my ancestors.
I currently have the University of Leipsic in mind; it is
home to the Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary
Anthropology, and is in the cultural centre of Saxony;
such appears near-Utopic for someone of my view.
I am teaching myself the beautiful German tongue on
my own and am making steady progress, so I will
be ready when I make my Exodus to my homeland.
On the computer, I occasionally play Minecraft and
the Sid Meier's Civilization series. In the real world,
I am fond of deterministic strategy games; chess (including
the Occidental and both Oriental forms) and Go are two
preferred games. Most of my spare time I spend reading
or using my computer as a virtual encyclopædia.
