Hello! If you’re reading this, read some posts of mine or even shared them in any way in the past let me start off this post by saying thank you! I started this blog around this time last year with my first posts going up in April, and it’s been a lot of fun. Whilst my Twitter is usually my main outlet for expressing opinion, this blog has proved a more than useful avenue to get extended posts out there.
In the spirit of today, I think what this blog has done over the last year is make me fall in love with writing. Whilst I don’t consider myself a great writer by any stretch, and I go many long stretches without posting, there’s a lot of pleasures to be taken from it which I would recommend anyone give a go. It still takes me aback when I see so many people reading whatever’s on here, and there isn’t a greater feeling than seeing someone say they enjoyed reading a post of me. The biggest one that sticks out to me is my recent Darling in the FranXX post. It was a post I was very nervous about publishing, but seeing fellow queer people who were hesitant about watching it say they will now give it a go because of my post made it worth it.
Anyway, updates! Jakitauji now has a .com domain! Exciting. I don’t really have a reason why it’s just nice to have really.
Posts! I write those sometimes. I’m taking a bit of a new “direction” per say, even though I’m still keeping the extremely loose nature of my blog. From now on I want to focus mainly on writing about older anime and obscure shows from recent years. There’s many reasons for this, but the main one is that recently I’ve learned that writing about those kinds of anime over big shows/seasonals is a lot more pleasurable to me. I hope through this I can introduce you to many different anime you might have only vaguely heard of before, or never at all.
That’s all I got to say for now. Thanks for taking the time to read this quick update and I’ll see you again soon~
