Yay! I am getting more Internetz-famous!
Just wanted to give a heads up that I was recently interviewed by Justin S, the editor of a blog filled with abundant anime/manga content (which is ranked highly on Technorati too), Organization Anti-Social Geniuses.
Here’s a brief teaser to give you an idea of what I was grilled on during the therapeutic session:
“Justin: So talk about yourself a little bit and how Manga Therapy was conceived.
Tony Yao: Manga Therapy mostly started out of a desire to talk about how manga can be used to motivate people mentally. Back in late 2009, I was given a book called “Crush It!” by famous social media entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuk, on my birthday. I didn’t read it right away, but when I did, I decided to start Manga Therapy since the book convinced me that the Internet & blogging will definitely get you to where you want to be.”
It’s been a long while since I was interviewed, but this interview was pretty fun and you get to understand the process I go through to provide dosages of manga psychology medication to you, my darling readers. :)

Also, follow Justin on Twitter. He loves Gintama.
