As you may have noticed, Bokutachi no Blog is currently updating it’s ‘about us’ page. This became much more important with the new variety of writers that are on the site now so you would know a bit about each person. So to get the ball rolling, let me tell you a little about myself.
Why Scamp?: I could pretend it’s because of something manly but no. It’s the name of my teddy I’ve had since I was 1. He’s a white fluffy dog. Well, he was fluffy. Most of his hair’s fallen out by now.
Brief Bio: I’m an Irish bloke currently living in England. I’m doing a lovely course in New Media (I even used this blog as a reference to how awesome I was at internet related stuff. Needless to say they instantly accepted me). I’m also a big Arsenal fan as well as soccer in general so you might see the occasional bit of premiership references drop into my posts.
Anime preferences:Well, lets start off with what I don’t like: Yaoi, long running shounens, an anime where it only involves a bunch of girls being insufferably nice to each other (this includes yuri), female wish-fulfillment and really stupid fanservice anime. I’ll generally watch anything else although I do have a soft spot for mind games and mecha. And Clamp. Hey, guess what anime I like based off those three…
Blogging style:I do episodic posts mostly but I try to keep the number of series I blog down to about 2. Along with constant monthly roundups and first impressions, I do like to toss in an occasional editorial. Since I’m not great at looking at the philosophical side of anime or serious commentary on anime fandom, I usually try to keep them funny. Not that there won’t be a serious point at the heart of the post but mainly it will just make you giggle (that’s one thing I’m confident about, I can make people laugh). But most of all I love to try build hype for new series. For this reason you will not only see an upcoming anime page at the top of the screen but also incredibly detailed and rather early season previews (which take forever to make BTW).
Other sites: My MAL account if you so wish. I do update it quite frequently so add me if you do like to read the blog. I also have a twitter which I only ever use for blabbing about anime related matters so you won’t have to hear random bits of info about my personal life. You may have to listen to the occasional bit of Arsenal tweeting though.
In case any of you were wondering, the picture at the top is the one that appears whenever I comment. It’s Hare from Jungle Wa Itsumo Hare Nochi Guu, a brilliant anime that doesn’t get the attention it bloody well deserves.
