an introduction

After many months of saying to myself, “I’m going to start a blog” I have decided it is finally time to actually start a blog. My writing output has fallen drastically in the past year and the best way to get back on track is to begin with something that would require me to keep to a schedule and encourage a healthy appetite for words. And so, I brushed the dust off this wordpress blog I made ages ago.

As to what I’ll blog about I’ve decided for now to keep it simple and stick to one subject while I get my gears back to grinding. To that end, I’m going with what encourages me the most these days: anime.

There are many places on the web that write about anime but that’s beside the point. I’m not looking to stand out from the crowd here. The goal is simply to write. Later down the line, I may choose to add another topic but for now I’ll keep with the one.

And now, a quick rundown: Online I go under dm21 (or dmich21 depending on account stipulations) and will continue to do so here as well. I’ve been enjoying various anime over the course of my life but it wasn’t until 2011 when I discovered Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha that I began to follow anime seriously. In Summer 2013 I watched my first bunch of simulcasted anime and have continued to do so ever since. I prefer to watch shows with a majority female cast but am willing to go outside my comfort zone from time to time.

Well, I suppose that will be it for now. Check out my profile on MAL here and my Twitter here.
