THE JOURNEY STARTED

In 2014, after a particularly difficult anime convention, we realized there was a need for a non-toxic perspective within the anime community. A voice of reason was missing. So we started down the path to answer that call.

I’m a sucker for unique stories and characters that have growth and development. I’ve seen a lot of anime spanning over many genres and want to keep on expanding my “watched list”. I enjoy open minded discussions on anime and manga and look forward to when a person asks “what anime should I watch next?”. I have my favorite shows just like any one else, but we’re all here because we like anime, so who gives a damn about sub vs dub?!

I Love Anime and Japanese culture. Watching it, talking about it, speculating, reading about it, everything.  Once in a while I pick up a new Manga, but then don’t finish it.  I do however watch almost every Genre and have seen a large variety of anime.   There is no other medium like Anime; The concepts, the Characters, the storytelling, it is truly unique and experiencing the eastern perspective is absolutely enthralling and entertaining.
