Hello there. Welcome to my world of Random Thoughts. In this world I’ll be posting stuff about anime and manga. Not to mention various other topics. I may post the occasional music video every now and than. And from time to time, I’ll just talk about my life in general. But first, here are a few things about me.

I was born an only child, for one thing. Originally I was planning to go into art professionally, but recently I’ve been more inclined towards writing. I still do the occasional wallpaper every now and then though, and I also still draw a little. But much of my energy these days goes into writing fan fiction. I’ve also recently become interested in archive and library work, which is something I’ve discovered I’m good at. Finally, like most people on the Internet, I like cats.

The Trouble with Sequels

SM Crystal: How Bad Was It?

Hello all. Earlier today I came across an interesting little article on ANN about how Sailor Moon Crystal isn't necessarily a totally botched series.


I actually have a bit of a confession to make about Sailor Moon Crystal. I've only seen the first four or five episodes of it. Part of the reason is because it never seemed like I had the time to watch the rest of it. Plus all the snippets of negative reviews of the anime I'd see on ANN made me not want to watch the rest of the series. Still, with what little I've seen and read I do have a problem with how Crystal turned out. Animation issues aside, to me it seems like the anime didn't live up to its full potential. Here was a terrific opportunity to take the original story of the manga and expand on it by doing episodes that focused more on the other characters, for instance.

So I'm kind of curious to know what those of you here on TheO think. Read the above article and let me know in a comment what you think of Sailor Moon Crystal. Do you think it was an okay series that fell flat, or do you think it was a complete and total disaster?

I Loath Yard Work!

Good evening everyone. I just wanted to spend a few minutes on a post to talk about my day. Those of you reading can probably guess from the title that my day wasn't all that great. And all of you would be right, because I did not have a very f...
