Anime has been a passion of mine for a very long time. It’s been my go-to escape from life’s most difficult tribulations (aside from books, of course), and yet for the past couple of years I just haven’t had the drive to watch much of anything in regards to anime. A traumatic experience occurred and while I tried to process and heal from that, I lost my passion for many things, including anime. This caused me to go on an unexpected and unplanned hiatus from enjoying life.
Over the course of the past six months, I have been finding those little treasures that were dropped in the wake of my pain, and I’ve been picking them up, cleaning them off, and learning to appreciate them again! Some of those include reading manga, playing video games, and (finally) watching anime!
You guys have no idea how excited I am to be watching anime again. I know it may seem totally trivial, but it’s a huge deal to me. Anime opened up my mind and heart to understanding and learning about different cultures, and it eventually paved the path towards my burning, fiery love of Asian literatures. By being able to return to it, I feel like I’ve found a piece of myself that’s been sitting lost, at the bottom of the ocean for the few years.
With its homecoming, I want to start sharing anime reviews here on BiblioNyan. Have no fear; this place will still vehemently be devoted to bookish reviews and chats. But I wanted to diversify my content, so that when I do encounter villains (such as the Slump Monster), it won’t utterly shut me down. I need to have facets on this blog to fall back on when the reading party just isn’t that exciting.
My anime reviews will be rather informal. I mostly want to share thoughts and opinions about how I felt about a particular show or film, and whether I think it’s worth giving a try. There won’t be much technical speak from me, mostly because I’m unfamiliar with most of that stuff, and most of it will be expressed with good-natured vibes (even the negative opinions). I’m NOT a professional by any means. I’m just a huge fan who’ll have some subjective sayings that some folks may agree with and others not so much.
Well, upon reaching this point, I suppose I don’t have much more to add here. I would greatly appreciate any support you guys can offer me with this semi-new endeavour. If you have any questions, comments, concerns then please drop them in the little boxes below. I always, always reply.
I’m going to end this by asking you all what some of your favourite anime serials, or films, have been since the Fall 2014 season?? I could really use some suggestions to get kick-started!
