Because, like, it's been a while since that was a thing.
Yep. The rumours are true. I've joined the swelling ranks of anime critics online. I've got a new blog with guns in its legs and EVERYTHING. And you can find it in the link below:watchingthosecartoons.wordpres…
Why did I do this? What led me to such folly? How was I persuaded to start typing up crap about Japanese cartoons independently of my occasional reviews for AUKN?
Well, it's simple, really. I've had some stuff going on over here that's been stressing me out a little, and writing something just for fun has been a good way to keep my mind off it (all solved now, thankfully). Plus, I just really, really like this stuff, and a few folks had badgered me about doing something like this for a while. Since my review of Vertical Publishing's Gundam: The Origin manga got quoted on the back of the fourth hardback, it's almost like people are - GASP! - interested in my opinions. Wowzah.
Oh yeah - it has absolutely NUTHIN' to do with the fact that I don't have a girlfriend right now and I was in danger of otherwise wasting my surfeit of free time at the moment by dwelling on the agonizing darkness at the core of my being and the agony of my self imposed reclusive mountain-man type existence. For GOD'S SAKE, Rachel Nichols, RETURN MY FREAKIN' LETTERS!!!
Uh, yeah. Anyhoo, there's the blog. I have some ideas for fun things I can do with it, and you might even see a few guest writers on there from time to time. Mostly, I'm planning to update it every 2 - 3 months, with a feature review and a set of bite-size follow ups on whatever I've been watching that month. And if you're taken in by this nonsense idea that other people have perpetuated that I'm a soft-centered nice guy who loves EVERYTHING that's put in front of him, I DARE you to take a look at the mini review of GYO - Tokyo Fish Attack. It's already upset somebody a great deal.
WHADDYA WAITIN' FER?! GO READ ME BEIN' MEAN ABOUT STUFF!
