Hello! I have decided to begin a blog on animation, particularly Japanese animation. Anime is fairly diverse in its attractions, but the various fandom subcultures are not nearly as diverse. One sector that seems a bit underrepresented in the fandom is the point of view that comes from the perspective of traditional literary analysis. I am not sure if I will approximate that standard of writing or analysis on this blog, but I will attempt to explore animation from a serious perspective. That doesn’t mean this will not be a fun read about fun stuff. It just means that the focus will be on things that have significance beyond the anime fandom. This will also not be a blog with dry analysis. There will most likely be reviews and general commentary as well. I hope you will all enjoy reading this blog and watching what I have to talk about.
