Heike Hoffer

Heike hails from Alaska, where cheap survival hacks are a way of life when dodging bears in subzero temperatures. She came to Tokyo to do research for her doctoral dissertation, which, if she can stop having fun long enough to write it, will be a grand tome on the use of classical music in anime. (In other words: “Why do we hear Beethoven`s Ninth Symphony during giant robot battles?”) As a lover of the notoriously expensive genres of noh theater and classical music,Heike is always looking for cheap concert hacks to keep her artistic passions from obliterating her bank account.
