No one cares about anyone else’s life’s story, but I was reminded recently that I never closed off this blog properly, so I might as well do it now. Here’s what happened over the past few years:

  • 2008: Memories of Eternity was founded (mid-high school for me).
  • 2009: Joined twitter and made my first internet friends. Hooray.
  • 2010: University starts; I simultaneously got good enough to run a proper blog and ran out of time to do so.
  • 2011: Started traveling for cons; turned AX into an annual tradition; joined The Nihon Review and redirected focus there.
  • 2012: Rejoined anime fandom after a two-year IRL hiatus; tried to start blogging again; met a twitter girl and started an eroge TL group.
  • 2013: Stopped Paused translation for a bit; started dating said girl; ???
  • 2014 (?!): Applying for school in the US; probably west coast, probably for game design or film, either an MFA or college certification.

So I guess I’ve been here for a while. The internet is fun. Anime blogging was the beginning of my online existence so it’ll always be somewhat special to me. I’m still on twitter and probably always will be. It’s hard to say if I’ll get the chance to blog again, but if I do, it’ll be elsewhere. My main domain will contain all the relevant details, anyhow.

Thanks for reading my ramblings, whoever’s out there. See you online.

Good to know you’re still around. I hope things work out with your college and your girlfriend…it’s always nice to hear about positive things happening. My own blog is between web hosts right now, but I’m determined to start again asap because I just rediscovered my love writing.

Seeya on Twitter I guess!

It sort of is ;_;

It’s okay though. My brain’s still alive and it hasn’t lost its experience from these few years of anime blogging, so if I ever try again it shouldn’t take too long to get into the swing of things!

I remember stumbling upon this blog as one of the first results off googling a 5cm review after watching it for the first time. Subsequently it became the first anime blog I ever subscribed to and probably my jumping off point into discovering the aniblogosphere. Thanks for being the beacon for me for the wonderful community of internet anime bloggers (now mostly twitterers). It was a good couple of years of quality writing and I wish you the best.

:) nice to to see that you’re still around and active-ish, even if it’s not on this blog.

I’ve always thought, but never mentioned, that we should meet up since we’re from the same city and all. Perhaps the next time I’m back in town, if you’re not in the states by then?

take care~

You know, I’ve thought that too! I wouldn’t mind meeting up if you’re around. I’ll be here until next June-ish at the earliest, so there are plenty of opportunities (Anime North, if you’re in town for it?).
