About

As the tagline says, I love anime. I love it like whoa. I’ve been writing my whole life, but this is my first serious foray into blogging. So what’s it all about then? I spent two years living in the town of Yatsushiro which is located deep in the inaka of Japan. Here I taught English at 3 Junior High Schools and 4 Elementary Schools. I also spent those two years absorbing everything I possibly could about life, society and culture (both pop and otherwise) in Japan. I believe that this makes me uniquely qualified to write about the intersection between anime and culture. I’ve long been passionate about why anime is an intensely valuable art form, and this blog is meant to further that agenda. So join me while I examine the cultural and social context and ramifications of currently airing series and I’ll occasionally treat you to some critical analysis essays of past classics as well. Sometimes, you’ll even get a straight up cultural piece. If you’ve been looking for an anime blog that’s not your typical fare, then you may have found the right place. Poke around and see what you like!
