moe and waifus for all.

Well, it looks like my anime blog is up and running. Promote it if you want.

I have a lot of self-indulgent, pointless things I want to talk about there. For a preview, the ideas for posts lined up in my notes touch on narrative structure and ways to evaluate it; themes of transhumanism in science fiction and the deconstruction of them (with a primary nod to Evangelion and Gurren Lagann); awesome mecha designs; gender and sexual identity; translation and localization quality; the way adaptation from one medium to another works (with Terra e... as the role model); relationship dynamics in fiction across genres and demographics; the repetition of metaphors and themes within long-running franchises; and the construction, display, and recognition of identity within Western anime fandom. I'll also try to do reviews of individual anime, games, and manga. It's going to get pretentious up in here.

For now, I'm going to try to stop getting distracted and finish the first Ace Attorney game. I really like Lana Skye, and I hope I will conclude this game with a desire to roleplay her on the internets.
