About the Founder
YoU is a blogger, web enthusiast, editor-in-chief and founder of TheAkiba. YoU is deeply in love with Japanese culture, internet technology, web design and development. If you are like him, take a look at how he runs the blog. His favorite series is Aria (アリア) by Kozue Amano (天野 こずえ), may be it sounds a bit weird to you but that’s the deadly truth.
Apart from Japanese pop culture, YoU is especially interested in web design and development, to be more specific, WordPress. He made a WordPress framework Reverie based on ZURB’s Foundation and you can take a look at it on ThemeFortress, a WordPress centered blog he runs.
