He co-founded the Anime and Manga Research Circle, produces the annual Anime and Manga Studies Symposium (the Academic Program track at Anime Expo, the largest Japanese animation convention in the U.S.), and maintains the Anime and Manga Studies Blog and the Online Bibliography of Anime and Manga Research. Mikhail’s own scholarship examines how different types of people, such as anime/manga fans, organize and use information.
