I started watching anime at the ripe old age of 3 thanks to a battered copy of Unico on VHS. Frankly, it’s all been downhill from there. After four years of university tormenting my professors with increasingly elaborate comparisons of anime-to-literature, they were no doubt as glad to see me graduate as they had despaired when Gankutsuou first aired.
In addition to Japanese pop culture, I also have an intense interest in history (generally considered a good thing for history majors), and started Rekifan as a place where I can talk about those two interests and the many ways in which they collide.
I also moonlight as a copy editor and have worked on projects that range from academic encyclopedias to comics that won’t be on the shelves for another couple months.
