I had to pull out the rusty Powerpoint skillz (I learned Microsoft Office back in the 1990’s….yikes) to figure out how to film a presentation on Baku 獏 for Anime Central Con (virtual this year). I didn’t want to invest in extra software or good cameras or anything.

Kind of a quick/steep learning curve, but I think I might have pulled it off. Nothing professional, mind you, but perhaps a bit interesting. Hopefully I’ll be able to link to it later after the Con.

Kind of went down some interesting side channels (as you do) into Lafcadio Hearn (Greek Irish guy in the 1900’s who wrote down Japanese folk tales) and Asibikaashi, or spider grandmother of the Ojibwe stories.
