I'm not one to recommend shounen to others, since that is one genre I hate probably even more than you hate SoL. I have extremely low tolerance for that, and to be honest, JoJo is already way too much in the shounen direction for me, and I would've dropped it if it weren't for your enthusiasm.
That's a lot. I love the system of just applying to one uni and be 100% guaranteed you get in. Though of course I realize that that only works in smaller countries.
By the way, when I'm applying for me exchange to Japan next year, I also have to put a second choice on my list of universities. If I can't go to Kyoto, I plan to go to the US instead. Since you guys are probably way more knowledgeable about this than I am, which if the following would be good choices? Know that if I'm going to the US, I want to continue on with my current study, so the university has to offer 3rd year math courses.
I could also go to Europe or Asia, but when going to Asia language may be a problem, and I'd rather go a bit further off home than Europe.Though perhaps some Asian universities are actually a really good choice for English speakers, I don't know. Here's the full list.
Oh, and note that if your university is on that list, you can probably go to my uni on an exchange. It'll be fun.
