So after insisting over and over that I don’t really write reviews, I’m… writing reviews. :)

Just recently, senior manga editor Katherine Dacey invited me to join the staff of reviewers over at PopCultureShock’s Manga Recon. I accepted her invitation with much glee, and as a result, you can find my first review (of Claymore volume 13) in today’s Manga Minis !

Perhaps the greatest advantage to the fact that I really don’t write reviews here, is that very little at this blog can be expected to change. I’ll still be rambling on about manga as I have for the past year or so, and in addition, I’ll be linking to reviews of mine that are published over at Manga Recon.

A million thanks to Kate for this wonderful opportunity!

    My pleasure! The person you should be thanking, however, is Michelle Smith, who introduced me to your blog via your essay “Why You Should Read NANA.” Michelle’s a big fan of your writing, as am I. Welcome to the crew!

    Congrats! Not that I had any doubts, it’s a good review.

    • Oh, thank you Ed! Heh. I was so nervous about my first one, too. I hope they will only improve! I’m actually pretty excited about an opportunity to become a better writer. :)

  3. Congrats! It’s great having more opportunities to read your lovely writing and I look forward to your thoughts on series. I hope you have fun :)
