Just a brief post to outline the motivation behind this blog.
I basically am starting this to develop my writing skills as well as my ability to analyse and understand anime as a medium.
I will mostly be posting about anime as that is my main hobby and a real love of mine. I don’t claim to be an expert at analysing anime, not in the slightest. For the most part I’ve been a passive consumer of anime and had very little engagement in discussions surrounding it so I’m very much hoping I’ll be able to deliver some unique perspective on shows, perhaps not now but hopefully in the near future when I’ve developed my analytical skills and sharpened my critiques.
I am starting my degree in September, which will have a heavy focus of literature. While this is not necessarily directly lined, I hope that through exploring anime in a more complex way I’ll better my understanding of structure, narrative, characterisation and so on.
This blog is mostly for me, but I hope that this will allow me to make friends within this community, a luxury I’ve never had before.
I’m aiming to post three times a week. These posts will most likely involve seasonal rundowns, classic anime reviews, my personal journey with anime, short musings on themes and such.
