As the title says, I am new here so please take care of me like you would a small purple-haired girl in a tangerine box that has just appeared on your doorstep.
Well, I may have paraphrased slightly. Anyway, yeah. So I’m the RamenPoodle. I will be joining this blog as of…now, actually. To the admins of this blog that came before me, I am happy to be on board as one of your writers. I will do my best to tirelessly cover many aspects of Japanese culture, including but not limited to anime and manga. Also if something comes up that is newsworthy, such as a certain fantastic series being licensed or something like that, I will be sure to keep you guys informed. Along with descent I also plan to cover this season’s offerings. Currently I am slated to do Kaichou wa Maid-sama! and K-ON!! (oddly enough, both are series with exclamation marks). I might also talk about B Gata H Kei a bit if no one else does, lol.
As of now I’ve really only been into anime seriously for about three years and I’m sure that some of our future readers will be much more experienced than I, but I do have an aether-based existence on MyAnimeList and you can feel free to look at what I’ve watched and enjoyed if you want. I do rate series ridiculously high on that site for some reason so take my ratings with an ever-so-small grain of salt. Basically if it’s an 8 or higher then I recommend it, although I do recommend some 7s.
The main type of anime I enjoy is moe, slice of life, and romantic comedies, and I know admitting that on an anime-based blog is a lot like admitting you’re a racist in the middle of downtown Los Angeles; however, these interests are not exclusive. I also enjoy a good bit of action series, including those of psychological and horror genre.
In addition, I play tons of video games as well as visual novels, and will probably report on some of those as well. Currently I’m in the middle of Shuffle! Anyway, that’s pretty much me. I feel honored to be a part of this growing community, and wish you all well. My first review will be coming up shortly. For now, さよなら！
(That would be goodbye.)
