Back with new content and a new PC

Alright then… first post of 2016. Sor­ry about the sud­den dis­ap­pear­ance of new posts. What was sup­posed to be a month-long break from the blog for school turned out to be a dis­as­ter. You see, I was going to write a Christmas/New Years post about my 2015 weeb high­lights for 12 Days of Ani­me, but […]

Anime Blog CPR

Alright… uh, well then. Seems this blog has been dead for a few months now. I’ve been caught up in fin­ish­ing up the last of my junior col­lege edu­ca­tion, han­dling work, and fam­i­ly respon­si­bil­i­ties, so much that video games and watch­ing ani­me have been my pri­or­i­ties for down­time activ­i­ty rather than writ­ing about ani­me. Sor­ry […]

Image Cred­it: 咩狼(めい) from Pix­iv Because my birth­day was like, two days ago, and the feel of attain­ing the most pos­si­ble adult free­doms avail­able in Cal­i­for­nia is awe­some (I’m 21 now? Yessir!), I declare this month “Hap­py Month” in which posts and rants about ter­ri­ble or mediocre things is kept to a min­i­mum in com­par­i­son […]

12 Days of Anime, Day 9: My return to blogging

Image Cred­it: satouk­ibi from Pix­iv Recent­ly, I’ve looked over some of my ear­li­est posts on this blog, back when I start­ed this blog around the mid­dle of my junior high school days (2007). My reac­tion to my ear­li­er days on the inter­net? Fun­ni­ly enough, I noticed that six months into blog­ging, the way I expressed […]

RE: The roots of our fandom

Yume­ka of Mainichi Ani­me Yume wrote an arti­cle where she harkened back to her child­hood and exam­ined the ori­gins of when her love of ani­me first began and, of course, why it still per­sists in her heart today.

I almost forgot I had an anime blog. ( _| ̄|○ )

Anoth­er mouth-to-mouth resus­ci­ta­tion post. Oh great. Yes, I real­ly did for­get I had an ani­me blog. I’ve been so focused on school work late­ly that it’s all I’ve been focus­ing on the last two months. Because I’m a per­fec­tion­ist like that. Also, being in love with cute girl is cute. But then it hit me! […]
