Urged by both akinari-kun and Suri, I have decided to join the ranks of the SUTORAIKUanime writing staff! My name (as stated above) is DMC, and any readers with Twitter can find me there most of the time on account of the fact that my phone has a data plan. I'd fallen out of love with anime for a good while after the anime club I had been attending disbanded, but thanks to a combination of Twitter and Crunchyroll I've gotten back into the swing of things. Go below the image for more information about SUTORAIKUanime's newest episode reviewer!
Like the blog's founder, I live in what some might call the "Great White North" (although not in a particularly great, white, or Northern part of the country), and I first started watching anime way before I had any idea what "anime" actually was. Previously, I managed the I've Sound Blog under the alias "Aibu", but eventually decided that I didn't particularly enjoy managing my own blog or writing about I've (although I do still enjoy many of the group's songs). As such, I'd more or less retired from the blogging "scene", as it were, but like the protagonist of every gangster movie finds, there are some things you can never truly leave behind. Luckily for me, that means coming back to a life of writing regularly about Japan-related topics instead of putting guns to people's heads and selling drugs like the aforementioned movie gangsters - it's easier, more fun, and doesn't get you in jail, so I figure out of those two lifestyle choices I picked the better one.
I joined too late to do any episode reviews for the Summer anime crop, but I will be contributing to the season-ending reviews as well as beginning episode reviews for the Fall season. My preferences for shows are all over the place, but generally the material I like the most fits squarely into the "action comedy" sub-genre; and seeing as at least a quarter of any given season's output is likely to fit into that category, I rarely find myself displeased with what's being offered. If I had to pick an "all-time" favourite anime, I'd have to give that honour to the 1978 Galaxy Express 999 TV anime, although I'm far from an "old-school" purist - that show just happens to be really, really good.
Looking forward to a bright and happy future amongst the good people of SUTORAIKUanime,
