Halno’s quest has taken him to some of Japan’s most beautiful landmarks, as well as to sites across the world:

Japan loves a good example of forced perspective—in which the camera makes objects appear to have a different spatial relationship to one another than they do in reality. In 2013, the nation fell in love with a similar photo meme inspired by Attack on Titan. We’re happy that halno’s one-man meme involves more flying and less eating people.

Float on, fellow wizard.
