First of all I want to start off by apologizing to my dear readers who I’ve kept in the dark for so long, having not posted for more than just a few months at this point. I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal issues which had practically taken over my life since mid-August, when my posting got really egregiously slow.
I’d been dealing with depression for a couple of years without much help and things just kind of took a turn for the worse in regards to family relations in August. I’ve since been seeing a therapist and am really pumped to report that this Kami is once again in fighting condition. I’m much better than I’ve been in the past two or so years, and this isn’t even my final form.
Some real talk, this blog and the articles I wrote were some of the more important sources of happiness for me, not even the reception I got from the reader(though that was pretty good as well), but the simple act of writing about what I love and enjoy brought me a lot of satisfaction. Sadly, as my depression got worse with the oncoming fall, I couldn’t bring myself to write for a long time, and the attempts I made were not up to standard for me. The good thing is that now I feel much more confident in my ability to maintain a steady stream of good articles for my dear readers.
Talking about content, I had kind of lost track of my original vision of this blog. I’m not a person who watches a lot of anime, because I really don’t like it’s seasonal nature and series constantly being left unfinished. I only got into watching a lot of anime for the sake of writing articles for the site, and in doing so, compromised my original vision and manga time. I’m a person who reads a lot and is naturally attracted towards manga and light novels and books, and I stopped writing about them and following up on series because of the increase in anime-based content. I’m going to go back to the roots now, I will write about particular seasonal anime and anime I find interesting in general, but there won’t be compulsive posts like the Hensuki episode breakdowns, which I did as low effort replacements for lost time I had to make up. So more manga, light novels and fantasy books can be expected, especially some obscure ones.
I also like explaining and talking about the otaku industry, so more interesting stuff on that as well.
Because of my depression, I missed a lot of things which were important to me, like the ending of Gotoubun No Hanayome, or the Quintessential Quintuplets, almost feels like I missed my daughter’s wedding(even though I have none), regardless of the fact that the wedding was a flaming piece of bull crap. Currently I’m in the process of catching up on a lot of series I took a break from, including One Piece and We Can’t Learn.
So in the end, I just wanted to say that this Kami hasn’t given up, and I will continue writing articles without fail(one good thing about self-quarantine, I have lots of free time now and in the long, long future, also because of a work change I’m much less stressed now)
Farewell for now my dear readers, we shall meet again very soon, and I swear, this time my return is permanent.
