It’s been a while without an update from me. Unfortunately things have been busy, but I did want to mention one thing, before it comes and goes without me even saying it. I’m heading (slightly) south this weekend to go to the NY Anime Festival.
This will be my first “con” experience, and I’m looking forward to it. Of course, I’ll be sure to take a ton of pictures and give an update on what happened when I get back.

I saw my first anime on a Saturday morning when I was young enough that I don’t remember how old I actually was. It’s a fair guess that I was probably just entering the double digit ages though. That anime happened to be Sailor Moon. I’m only mildly ashamed now to say that I was hooked after seeing only one episode (and it was most certainly not the first episode of the series either.) From then on I would always try to catch the show each week.
Not long after being introduced to the Sailor girls they were moved to showing every weekday morning, following DragonBall Z, my second, and longer lasting obsession with anime began there, each morning before school. Continue reading
