You are [not] alone
Ok, I realize that most anime fans will recognize the movie title that I used as my blog title. For those that are fairly new to anime fandum or just trying to get a grasp one what the buzz is, it is the title of the second movie produced by Gainex in their “Neon Genesis Evangelion” series. So why the title? I chose it as a reminder for other fans like myself who feel like they are the only ones with an addiction to anime. You aren’t the only ones, so chin up.
I started this blog as a way to share my anime experiences with others that I have not met as well as those I have. Around my office I do not know of anyone that is as much of a fan as I. I tend to get the occasional strange look and to one off chuckle once I start rambling on about the latest series I have started watching or the latest figurine. (forgive me if I use the wrong terms now and then, I to am a fairly new anime addict) My family is not really into anime either… ok, let me rephrase that, I can’t share most of the anime I watch with the kids yet… they are to young. My wife has no interest, especially if she has to keep up with the subtitles.
Yeah, I said fairly new… There are some aspects I have only recently started getting into (as of this entry) such as the PVC figurines and Manga. While there is a huge wealth of knowledge about all things anime on the internet, I like to go at my own pace. I hope to share my discoveries / experiences here and hopefully meet others who share the similar interests. I hope get back into attending conferences again and perhaps meet others. Hopefully even meet people that live near me.
Anyways.. on with the blog. Let me know what you think. I appreciate constructive comments as well.
