If you are observant, you've seen semi-regular comments here from me. I've known Gregory for a number of years online, and a year and some back he seduced me into the modern world of digital fansubs. I've been exposed to anime (without realizing it) since the early 1970s, via Speed Racer and Star Blazers. Then, in college, one of my roommates was heavily into All Things Japanese, with shelves full of manga and countless GIFs of Bubblegum Crisis and the like; I picked up a small amount of knowledge through osmosis. Finally, some years later, I discovered that my wife was watching Sailor Moon on FOX in the morning, and I said, "No, no, let me show you the real thing," and my journey to the Dark Side was complete. Now I've badgered Gregory sufficiently that he's given me posting access here, so you're all doomed.

I'll certainly be offering my thoughts on recent shows, but I will probably venture beyond that as well, looking at some older shows and perhaps at other aspects of anime, manga, fandom, and Japanese culture. I help run an anime con in Denver, and I've studied the language in my Copious Free Time for 8 years or so now, so I flatter myself that I've seen a bit deeper than the surface layer.

(Hm, Movable Type doesn't seem to like Unicode, so I'll use roumaji: Yoroshiku o-negai shimasu.)
