Just a heads up, while I prepare a post in which I geek out about Nanasaki Ai (HHHHHNNNNNNNNNGGGGG!!) from Amagami SS:
I have a guest blog post over at All About Manga. Many thanks to Daniella, who gave me a chance to rant a lot about what it means to be an Otaku in one of the weirdest, most dangerous places of the world.
Just between you and me, this piece was hard to write. Finding the right structure and the right topic was a huge challenge: Most of the time I was ranting about old anime, and when I realized I was straying from the most important thing about Mexican Otaku (That is, The Current Situation), I scrapped everything but the introduction.
I am not exactly super-amazed at what I wrote. I think it’s barely OK, but then again I am a guy who tries to make literature, not commentary. Stories, not essays. Hence, from a literary stand point, I look at it with hesitation.
It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done.
So, it is absolutely OK.
