These are the random musings of a shiftless loser, because what other kind of person would devote more than ten seconds to analyzing and critiquing stuff like mainstream manga and other sorts of media.
At the current moment, I’m still in the process of copying my old blog posts on NF with the intention of perhaps rewriting or editing some of them due to noticing areas of possible improvement in what were originally posts created entirely as first drafts (some of which were little better than short essays written on the spur of the moment). This blog will (hopefully) update at least once a weekend when I have the time to actually post material here.
My primary interests originally lay in reviewing Naruto due to having grown increasingly disenchanted with the manga as it went on. Written primarily as a means of catharsis through letting out my various frustrations with the story, my thoughts were initially conceived as primarily comedic and an excuse to practice my critical reading and writing skills in an environment where there was little pressure.
However, as I continued to write, I found my early attempts at comedy lame (even more so than the stuff I come up with now) and my use of images amateurish to say the least. Furthermore, I also came to realize that while there was much I didn’t like about the series, there was also some stuff that I did think happened to be done well. Wanting to be a little more evenhanded and analytical in my reviews, I quickly switched gears.
While much of my focus remains on Naruto, I’ve also decided to give some thought to other works I’ve come across, finding free time away from work and other responsibilities (and my social life), and hopefully coming up with content designed more to amuse me than anything (although if it does actually provide some entertainment to others, well, good for them).
