Hello! This is descent and I would like to join the rest of the Anime Insights writers in welcoming you to our new blog where you will find fresh and engaging discussion and analysis of Anime, Manga, and Conventions both past and present. Here at A.I. we hope to keep you abreast of the very best of each Anime season while also providing you with a new place to find a wide array of recommendations and analysis of classics (and some duds) from a wide array of genres. As writers we may be united by our common interest in Anime and Manga, but you will still find a refreshingly wide array of tastes and opinions that will help stimulate discussion and give this site something for everyone.

One of the features we are most excited to bring you is our in-depth reviews of a wide variety of complete series. We know that many people are often left unsatisfied with some of the more generic recommendations found on some other sites. Often anime fans are looking for a bit more than summaries of the funny hijinks and attractive characters; many reviews neglect to offer good insight into the theme, plot, and settings that are often essential to transforming a promising story into a classic. Each week some of our authors will be bringing you reviews, each with a unique personal take, from multiple genres that will help readers find new favorites and expand their repertoire of meaningful and visually striking series. By reading and discussing these topics with us you might even develop some new ideas on some of your personal favorites. Be sure to check in each week to find yet another interesting way to expand your horizons and more importantly, your enjoyment of anime and manga.

We also love conventions here at Anime Insight and likely share that feeling with many a potential reader. Although we are relatively new to conventions, we are certainly not lacking in enthusiasm. It will be our mission to provide in-depth coverage of several annual conventions held throughout the United States. On the week of the ‘cons we attend there will several of us on-site to provide viewers with photos, panel summaries, cosplay highlights, and overall reviews of the quality of every convention we visit. We hope this will help people find exciting new conventions to visit or have a place to relieve some of the highlights if you were also present. Maybe our reviews will even help you work up the courage to attend one for the first time. Our writers will keep you posted on upcoming events and important convention updates from around the country.

Striving to be different doesn’t mean that we will neglect some of the most essential daily features of a go-to anime blog. Beginning with the Spring 2010 season you can join several of our writers in following and discussing a variety of anime series from the new season. Weekly episode reviews and quarterly summaries will be ever present as we follow each series’ maturation and we’ll mourn together when another great story is ruined by a rushed and hand-waved ending. On top of these daily updates, expect plenty of pieces covering the wide array of anime/manga-related culture. Manga recommendations, weekly news updates, cosplay, and modeling guides will help keep this site relatable to readers from all walks of the community and if you stick around long enough you just might find something new to love yourself. There will always be plenty of interesting and funny posts to give this site the flavor it needs to be attractive and entertaining to all our readers.

Once again, let all of us here at Anime Insight thank you for joining us as we begin our journey into the Anime Blogosphere. We are looking forward to developing friendly and active relationships with the entire anime blogging community while providing yet another exciting source for news and information. As you begin to participate in our discussions please remember that diversity of opinion a valued part of Anime Insight and it is something that you can expect from all the writers and readers you find here. We ask everyone to extend courtesy and respect to others in your comments and discussion, trolls, flamers, haters, and baiters need not apply. This is an exciting new step for all of us and we are glad to have you along for the ride. Who knows, you may even be a guest writer at some point!
