Yeah, We’re Still Here

This fall, those of you that regularly engaged with here on AAL may have wondered “where are these guys?” While we haven’t been completely silent, this place has been pretty much a ghost town. I think it’s safe to say that for most of us, real life got the better of us. So what was I doing? Traveling for work, living out of a hotel, and suffering the East Coast. I don’t know how you guys live out there. Much too crowded for my liking. I like my little corner of the Northwest USA.

And because of all my travels, I’ve spent the better part of the last three months all but avoiding anime. I didn’t have time to watch, and generally speaking, my interests waned for a period there. I’ve had a number of gripes about shows and fandoms over the last year, and it was a chance to step away, and gain some perspective. And honestly, I didn’t miss it a whole lot. It was a well needed break.

What did I do with my free time? Sitting in airports and on planes does leave a lot of down time, so I decided to dive in and read some fiction. Honestly, not enough people read anymore. They’re looking at a portable screen and watching a TV way too much. And I was falling into that same trap. I read what there is of A Song of Fire and Ice (aka Game of Thrones), which amounts to five long books. What an epic series of fantasy fiction. And it’s been too long since I’ve read a good fiction. For those that have just watched the TV series, you’re missing on a much better written story.

So whats next, for me as well as the blog? First up is to decide what anime to catch up on. There is still much from Fall, and a few series from Winter, that I need to see. Luckily, Winter is slow enough that it will be easy going. You can see what I was interested in here:

And plans are in the work for the blog, so February should be an interesting month. We’re planning to bring some content back, and as for me, drop some others. I don’t have the time right now to blog something episodically, so Kill la Kill will be falling by the wayside, except for some editorials here and there. But we’ll be working to fill in with some other content in the next few weeks.

As always, the comments sections are open. Feel free to give feedback as needed. And hopefully you stick around long enough to see what’s next!

Our Last Addition This Year-Sabas!

hanakoo

To round out our merry crew, we’ve brought in one more addition to AAL: Sabas! With a stron interest in the light novel and visual novel mediums, he will add another great element to the team. And without further delay, I’ll let him go and introduce himself:

After floating around southern Japan for about three years, I’m currently shipwrecked on the East coast on the Unite States. I’ve been actively engaged with anime and manga since 2006, and have lurked and commented on Twitter since 2007. I’ll try just about any genre but I tend to lean towards slice of life and romantic comedies. I’m constantly trying to get people into things that aren’t popular in the US: mainly light novels and visual novels. I’m also a fan of anime remixes, and sharing mixes that I find on SoundCloud.  So, let’s enjoy a good story, shall we?

You can find Sabas on MyAnimeList, Twitter, and GoodReads. Let’s give him a big welcome!
