Introduction – “The only heaven I know is heaven in the sound”
Quite a weird title for an introduction post I know, but I thought it’d be nice to use a line from Stereoman, a song by ELLEGARDEN and also the name I’ll be using here on Random Curiosity, so hello everyone, Stereoman is now a part of RC!
So why did I throw myself into this? – Simple, I love this site. I’ve been following this blog since 2006, making this site one of my daily visits; however, I haven’t really written much in the comments section. I’ve also been around the IRC channel as a quiet stalker.
When Divine decided to bring in some new writers, I felt like I just had to apply. To be able to contribute to one of my favourite sites pleases me very much and I hope my writing will appeal to you.
You won’t have to wait for the Spring shows to see some of my posts because I’ll be covering the remaining episodes of Senki Zesshou Symphogear starting with the 10th episode.
As for my taste in anime, it’s quite diverse. I usually watch 15 shows every season even though I try to convince myself to watch less. My favourite shows are mostly shounen and josei but I do watch a lot of shoujo and seinen too. You can check out my anime list to find out more about my preferences.
My history with anime goes all the way back to my childhood before I entered school. My parents both have jobs that keep them busy so I grew up with a nanny. She usually brought me video tapes containing various cartoons, one of them being a show called Candy Candy and another one called Sailor Moon, the latter being a show which I think all of you know. However, I wasn’t familiar with the term ‘anime’ until I entered junior high. Since then I’ve been watching anime regularly in Japanese (I used to watch it dubbed).
Looking at the other writers’ introduction posts, I feel like I should write something about myself. I’m so bad at this! Well, I’m a student with a lot of free time, freelancing entrepreneur, vegetarian and I love to collect cacti, read manga, and play video and board games.
Writing these kinds of posts isn’t really my forte but I hope you’ll get to know me better through my insights from my future anime entries.
