Anime mercenary for hire!
Finding Writing Jobs on Twitter
One thing that I absolutely love about social media is the ability to exchange ideas and information with thousands of other people who share my passions or work in the same field. I’ve been on Twitter since September 2008 and over the years I’ve been able to make some very good friends and also find some amazing writing jobs. Recently on another social media platform, someone asked me how I could find writing jobs on Twitter and I gave a brief explanation but today I’d like to take the time to detail out how I’ve been able to find many well-paying jobs on the site. Please keep in mind that these strategies worked for me, but your mileage may vary.
Anime Review: 'My Roommate is a Cat' (2019)
I’m a dog person and even I found this series irresistible! Story Subaru is a very talented, but reclusive author.

Deciding to take it home, Subaru and his new roommate, Haru, form an unlikely bond and become more than just roommates, they become family.

Anime Review: 'Violet Evergarden' (2018)
Violet Evergarden takes place on the continent of Telesis where a civil war was fought for years. There is practically no one that you will meet in this series who wasn't impacted by the war in some way or another. The first episode begins in a quiet hospital where a blonde girl is recuperating from injuries she sustained in one of the final battles of the war. She expects her direct commander to be waiting for her when she is finally discharged but instead she is greeted by a different officer.

The news has hit that, as expected, Nintendo will be releasing a mini version of their Super Nintendo system later this year around the world. The new limited edition system will be shipped from the end of September to the end of the year after which, presumably, it will be discontinued much like the NES release that came out not too long ago. Included with the mini SNES will be twenty-one classic games, including the never before released Star Fox 2.
Which Anime to Watch: Summer 2017
Every three months dozens of new anime series premiere on Japanese television (and on streaming sites around the world). With so many different shows appearing almost all at once though it can hard to know which shows you should be paying attention to, which is why I've created this handy guide of which shows stand the best chance of being worthwhile.
Why I Purposely Trashed My OkCupid Profile
I first met my wife on OkCupid a little over six years ago. It was a very strange happenstance to be honest. She was just browsing around when she noticed a small thumbnail that featured a guy with long hair down in the corner of her screen. She clicked on it, saw something in my profile that she liked, and sent a message. Years later she told me that I wasn't even "supposed" to reply and that she sent the message with the belief that I was out of her league. Luckily for both of us I did reply which eventually led to us getting married a few years later. It sounds pretty cut and dry, right?
The Best Anime You've Never Heard Of Part II
It all starts with a simple desire to kill. A desire for revenge so strong that you're willing to damn your own soul to hell forever upon your own death. Upon the stroke of midnight you visit a phantom website which will allow you to put in the name of the person you want revenge against. You can take the offer but will be warned that upon your own death you will be cast into hell in order to live out the rest of eternity under constant torture and pain. Whether that's a fair trade is entirely up to you but once you pull the string around the straw doll's neck, that's it. No going back. That's how you summon Ai Enma, also known as Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl).
The Best Anime You've Never Heard Of
Back in the first decade of this century, a little known director (Koichi Mashimo) and a little known studio (Bee Train) teamed up to create a triquel of anime series which have affectionately become known as the 'Girls with Guns' trilogy. The first series of this trilogy was the 2001 series Noir while the last entry into the series was 2007's El Cazador de la Bruja. Arguably the best series in the trilogy, however, is a little known action series from 2004 simply titled Madlax. Melding the unlikely trio of mental trauma, the metaphysical, and civil war as its central themes, Madlax defied the odds by telling an amazing story from start to finish and created lifelong fans of the title in the process.
