What is the non-profit, and what do they do? Sorry for the questions, but I was just curious.

What is your full-time job and was it hard getting it?
Lunar_ Sep 16, 2016 3:59 PM
Did blogging become your main source of income or did you get another job?
Lunar_ Sep 16, 2016 6:19 AM
Did you major in writing?

Aaaawwww Bless! <3 Thanks, I hope you're doing well too buddy. I'm doing fine on my end, it's my senior year of college! Pretty exciting times. I've been doing a lot up here with my fraternity and just trying to do my best here in school, lot's of fun with partying and all that while still making a fair amount of time for anime and games. I haven't been as active on the forums as I was before, but I still linger, it's hard to completely give it up. I read your articles on CR as much as I can, you've been doing a great job, Aniwords is of the most popular editorials on there.

Man, it seems just like yesterday when we were throwing the Best Girl Tourney. Fucking A, those were the days! hahahaha

friend request*, just noticed that error in my last comment, haha

You're welcome, and if you'd accept my friend on MAL, it'd make my night as well!

Hello, after reading your reasons for dropping Re:Zero, I've become an avid reader of your blog! Despite my dismay with the show's direction since episodes 14-15, Subaru's continued struggle with his white knight complex and the inviting nature of the show's creators gives Re:Zero a charm that prevents me from dropping it, no matter how hard I want to. I'd say fandom interaction also plays a big role in my enjoyment of the show, regardless of how displeased I've been with the narrative. Anyway, I just want to let you know that I find your thoughts on anime interesting!

Hello there, I want to say thanks for accepting my friend request. I've been following you onyour blog and twitter for some time now. I haven't read everything you've written but what I have read is really good. Just thank you.

Understandable. If you ever change your mind and do decide to watch UBW, I'd love to know your thoughts so lemme know. :P
Zadion Jan 22, 2016 4:40 PM
Have you watched the new Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works adaptation? If that's why you disliked F/Z, I think you might like F/FSN UBW a lot more.

Strangely, I don't feel my worldview is necessarily different from yours, or at least not tremendously so. I believe in clinging to hope and would also say I see both the world and humanity as a whole through a (to be frank, occasionally naive) Christian filter. I believe humans are inherently good, that both peace and happiness are attainable, and so on. But for some reason I don't this ideology as well when it dominates my entertainment and TBH I would be at loss for words in trying to explain why.

Regardless, I greatly appreciate your feedback :3 and thanks.

One thing: "I just personally don't see the appeal in it at all." Would this happen to be why you rated Fate/Zero a 1, or is there another reason? xD

Heyo, I just stumbled upon your blog when you were name-dropped on MAL thread about Christianity and anime. It's really cool to see a skilled blogger -- or a blogger at all, really -- who comes from a Christian background.

I'd like your input on something, though, if I may be so intrepid. We both come from (I would say deeply) Christian backgrounds, but our perspective on anime is almost entirely inverse. You appreciate happy endings and optimistic affirmations of hope. However, I seek darkness in my anime, or dramas in general I'd say. I love fatalistic shows, themes of hopelessness and futility, and shows that depict the darkest parts of the human condition. I feel the exploration of the darkest parts of life and of being human allow a story a much greater degree of poignancy and that it creates more opportunities to say something truly meaningful (of course, the value of any particular philosophy is largely subjective considering the degree of variance in how meaningful it might be to any particular individual). Naturally, a story has the most impact when it wields both themes of loss and themes of hope and pits them against one another, but I feel this works best when the story is predominantly morbid.

And there is also the fact I enjoy feels and depictions of suffering and loss evoke much more feels out of me than the lack of it does.

Do you have any input regarding why my perspective is incorrect and, most importantly, why it contrasts so sharply with yours when we both have similar foundations?

I like your blog and I don't think your taste is bad. It's just unique.
