As a disclaimer, since all of the commentors on Crunchyroll felt obligated to point this out—yes, I’m fully aware the stuff I’m talking about in this post wasn’t “invented” by anime for this particular genre. Of course, I probably don’t need to tell you guys that. You know me well enough to actually listen to what I’m trying to say. Ah, well, such is the price for writing for an audience on a big site versus on my blog. That’ll teach me to sell out…
To be honest, I don’t really have anything to add on regarding the content of this week’s post. I feel I’ve said all I need to in the article itself, so I thought I’d just take this opportunity to say thanks to all you blog readers here. I made the crack about selling out in the intro of the post, but it really has been an eye-opening experience writing for a big site for Crunchyroll. The difference in quality of commentors between there and here is stark. And it makes me pretty darn thankful I have a great group of readers on here who engage with me in thoughtful, kind terms.
So yeah, thanks to everyone who reads and comments here on Mage in Barrel. I’m really, truly, genuinely grateful for your readership and participation. Thanks for sticking with me, reading my stuff, and supporting my Patreo–
I kid, I kid. ^_^
