Hello there, dear reader, I hope you are having a wonderful day. Welcome to the blog of a kami that’s also an otaku! I hope you find something you like here.
I am a person with a lot of unrelated interests, like science and history, maths and philosophy, but by far the activity that I pursue with the greatest passion is reading manga and light novels(and also books). I have been an otaku for over ten years, since I was a wee little lad of just eight years old getting addicted to Dragon Ball and XXXHolic. I used to watch a lot of japanese children’s shows as a child(duh), but the summer of third grade when I first completed Dragon Ball was when I truly got inducted into the world of manga, and light novels a few years later.
Currently I’m going to be a first year engineering student at the University of Waterloo, in systems design engineering, and see cyber security as my calling(though I do place great emphasis on physical security as well). As a person, I love reading, just reading, books, articles, etc(also the reason I read so much more manga and light novels than I watch anime). I’m also have a huge love for cooking and martial arts, and I’m currently also in the middle of writing my own book. I’m also a huge coding nerd, and recently discovered and started playing Dungeons and Dragons with a group of friends.
Enough about me, let’s talk about the website. I initially made this website as an exercise in writing, seeing if I could actually write content that people would like to read. I tried and failed previously, as all the previous websites I made were more practical and object-oriented, falling prey to their own unnaturalness. At first I was unwilling to write about topics I was so deeply passionate about, as manga and light novels are an emotional anchor for me, but with fire in my heart and a quill of iron in hand, I started writing, and sharing my experiences with the otaku world has been quite the refreshing experience for me. I love writing on this site, partly because I love talking about otaku shit, and partly because I love writing.
An average reader would notice that I cover content in my articles in an experiential manner, talking about my own experiences and what I liked and didn’t like. As I say, I don’t do reviews, I just talk about stuff, more like a discussion than anything else. The reason for this is twofold. One is that I truly believe that objective reviews are simply impossible when it comes to highly subjective matter like what manga/anime/light novel is good or bad. Second is that I don’t like over-explaining things to people in the context of imposing my views on them, people can decide for themselves if they want to pursue a certain manga or not after I write about why I liked or didn’t like it.
With that, go on to greater things my dear readers, my posts await the covetous gazes of your thirsty eyes, and once again, I hope you find something you like on my website.
