Keep this in mind while reading this post

Hey guys!  How are you?  Me?  I’m GREAT!  Why?  Well, that’s part of what I’m going to talk to you about RIGHT NOW.

As you may have noticed, I have not posted anything this week as I promised.  I apologize for this delay; however, I have a really excellent reason for that.  I was waiting to see how something was going to pan out because it would directly effect Anime Tantrums.  Now that thing has happened and I am so excited to finally tell you about it.

For the foreseeable future, I will be writing anime reviews and list articles for the up and coming entertainment website Sofa King News! You can head over there right now and read the first piece I’ve written for them (also, stick around and check out the other stuff that’s been written as it’s totally worth it)!  I am so happy to be a part of this site.  It’s run by some very talented and passionate people and I am thrilled to add my voice to the mix.

So what, you might be asking, does this mean for Anime Tantrums?  Let me assure you that this site will remain here and will continue to be updated.  I have no intention of stopping what I do here.  But going forward, all episode reviews for currently running shows will be exclusive to Sofa King News.  When a new one goes up, I’ll post the link here so that you know shit is GOING DOWN.  I will also do this for any list articles I write for them.

This means that I am free to do with Anime Tantrums what I have wanted to do all along: write high quality, in depth analysis of past series and other Japanese pop culture phenomena.  My ultimate goal for this site is to get to the point where if you’re looking for pieces that deeply and critically think about anime and what it means to the Japanese, as well as taking a very academic look at culture and society as it relates to anime that’s written in an engaging and conversational manner then this is where you go.

I am hoping to be able to give you guys a tasty treat every week, ideally on Fridays, but definitely at some point over the weekend.  Depending on the complexity of the piece I’m working on and the research involved, it may end up being every other week.  But if that’s the case, I’ll pop in and let you know there’s a delay.

This means that this weekend I PROMISE you will be seeing the final wrap up of Aku no Hana (I am totally, completely, deadly serious this time).

That’s it for now.  Thank you, as always, for reading.  Thank you for sticking with me, and I hope you’ll check out Sofa King News and keep coming back here for the longer pieces I’m going to write.  I’ve got some really great stuff lined up that I’m excited for you all to read!

Until then, matta ne!

      It’s great to be a part of the team! I cursed myself with that title, because it’s been stuck in my head now for days.
