It occurred to me a few days ago that the third anniversary of this blog was coming up and I’d been on hiatus way longer than I intended.
I am glad that I gave myself a break though, it’s been a much crazier summer than I expected. Not only was I battling a serious bout of depression, but I moved to a new place with my boyfriend, adopted a dog and dealt with the death of three relatives, one of whom I was very close with. In between all that, there were cons to go to, a wedding in the middle of one of those cons on the other side of the state, relatives demanding my attention, disruptive religious holidays and work. God, I really hope that the cool autumn breeze coming in makes my life a little more chill.
I don’t know exactly what my next manga-centric posts will be about. Perhaps I will refine my manga reviewing skills since I’ve received some work as a manga reviewer for a pop-culture magazine. (I’ll let you know where to find them once everything’s published.) I also plan to start work on a comic that’s been ruminating in my head for a while and a otaku cooking site, the URL of which I’ve been paying for the last year and some change. I’ve no idea yet, but I intend to take a relaxed approach. I’ve been reading just as much as I did before the hiatus, so it’s not like I’ve left manga for good.
And to all my readers who are still around after all this time: Thanks for your continued support and love.
