Three years! Yay!
A lot has changed again since my last anniversary post. I’ve eased more and more into my job (which I’ve been holding a year and a half already!) and other hobbies, and I’ve tended to adapt a cruising pace on blogging. But it’s no big deal, because the anime I watch and the blog I keep are just there. Unlike people, they can wait forever.
I realized even more the importance of understanding anime fans in my enjoyment of the hobby. I care a lot why a person likes or hates shows, because to me it’s interesting. This just means that I treat my Twitter (don’t follow me on Twitter!) not as a distraction from blogging, but as an enrichment to it. If I understand the mind of a fan, I can help him/her with better recommendations, tee hee~
Along with my lifelong commitment to all things mecha, I’ve started getting into magical girl anime, much to the delight (and chagrin) of my friends. Arguably the reason for this is the excellent Madoka Magica, and I’ve followed up with Heartcatch Precure, as well as Princess Tutu (which I loved immensely). I’m playing a magical girl RPG campaign with friends on IRC, and writing some kind of mecha x magical girl (should I say “mechagal”?) story.
One thing I learned as a blogger (and a person) is that I shouldn’t care too much about writing a post, rather I should be more concerned about being ready to write. Hence, I’ll never announce that I’m on hiatus, because that provides no value to my readers. I won’t be so arrogant to assume that people are tripping over the fact that I haven’t posted in some arbitrary length of time. If there’s a post, it will come out eventually.
Thank you, and thank you again! I’ll hope to explore more exciting topics at my own pace. Continuing World will continue.
PS: Looking at all my recent posts, I seem to be turning into the aniblogger version of Kentaro Miura. I am okay with this.
