Update: We’re Up to Date!

Man, it took a bit, but I’ve finally updated this blog to be current with every major review I’ve written over the past couple of years (sans the Shelf Life articles, which I didn’t update, but I will post new ones here from today onward). Starting today, I’m going to be doing my level best to keep the links to my freelance work as current as possible.

More importantly, I’m going to be adding new stuff here too, original content to supplement my freelance work and give me some more creative outlets to talk about anime that I’m not “officially” reviewing, as well as non-anime materials. I’ve got some fun ideas for the kind of coverage I want to do for things in the future, but it may take a little time for me to organize and pull off.

My eventual goal is to build up both enough quality original content, along with an engaged audience, to be able to take on review requests, multi-media content, and other fun stuff. If I can do well enough to justify setting up a Patreon, that would be aces, though for the time being I’m just going to concern myself with keeping my mind and my writing reflexes sharp.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for the kind of material I should cover in the future, feel free to drop a line in the comments, or hit me up on Twitter and/or CuriousCat! I’d love to hear from you.

Dusting Off and Catching Up

Hello all,

Back in the summer of 2016 I began this blog with the intent of updating it regularly as I worked on my freelance writing as well as my own personal projects. Unfortunately, I vastly overestimated the amount of free time I would have managing the writing I needed to do as a freelancer as well as adjusting to my day job as a teacher. As a result, I’ve let this blog fall by the wayside for far too long.

Now, two years later, I’m much more comfortable balancing my work and my personal writing, and I want to give this site another go. Over the next little while, I’ll be updating the site with the most important freelance work I’ve done since 2016, as well as working to expand for more personal musings. The organization may look a bit haphazard because of this, but things should even out fairly quickly.

Also, believe it or not, but I don’t just watch anime; I’d like to share more of my thoughts on video-games, television, and all the other stuff I advertise in my site bio. I’m also trying to expand my portfolio a bit; I’ve invested in some equipment that will make projects such as podcasts and video-essays much more viable for me, and while I can’t make any long term promises, I’m definitely interested in exploring are and pop-culture in as many mediums as possible.

Stay cool everyone!
