I actually don’t like writing about myself. I do write a lot about what I feel towards writing and blogging in general throughout 1.5 years of the limitless imagination, but I rarely talk about anything other than what is acutely related to this virtual space and the ani-manga community surrounding it. That’s really because I don’t like to bring anything that is not remotely relevant to the focus of this blog, which had unknowingly become established over time to – anime commentaries, essays, and just lots of posts about having no writing inspiration.
But I figured its probably time to write about one, mostly because I have been in the community for so long and yet I think, people don’t actually know me much. They know only what I write and what I choose to put on here, but I rarely communicate with people about anything outside the context of this blog.
But at this point in time, there are really a few things about my life that I think my readers need to know. I actually thought of skipping out this post because I am so pressed for time at this current point, but I realised there was one less deadline I had to meet and hence I ended up writing this.
Sorry for the wall of text as usual people. Read what you deem important.
Throughout the one year and close to three months of the blogging community, I have come to realise that I have never provided much context to my opinions on anime, and what anime means to me. I thought they were too unimportant and uninteresting.
That is, until I read numerous such posts from other bloggers, and I realised how my different my experience is with anime as compared to others. Most importantly, I realised that providing the context of my experience is to certain opinions I write is quite relevant, especially when my preferences may border on being ‘different’ from most of my counterparts.
I won’t proclaim to deliver the most entertaining of stories below, but I believe that there is something in this post that would be of interest to any reader.
How it all began
Hello everybody! I present to you Day 2 of the Quote Challenge, which I was nominated by the four lovely bloggers – Lyn, Matthew, RoccoB and Kurosama238 🙂
Today’s quote comes from an anime that tops the charts for being one of the most inspiring anime to boot – Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
A while ago I self-nominated myself for this challenge on SomethingaboutLynlyn’s post in my occasional display of thick skin.
Little did I know that after that, nominations for this challenge started to roll in, namely from Matthew and RoccoB, and most recently, kurosama238.
Well, life always works out as planned.
Nevertheless, I would like to thank the four of them for granting me with an opportunity to do this challenge, since if I wasn’t nominated I would scarcely
force myself to end up doing one.
