I think when it comes to anime and manga, Japanese comics and animation, I'm a newbie, or a casual fan. I haven't experienced a ton, but the series I have had the opportunity to read or watch have made an impact on me, and I definitely plan to peruse more. The genres I tend to get into are darker, just like the video games I play or films I watch. With my sites, I hope to promote or at least introduce the series I've enjoyed. I'm always down for recommendations, as well, so if you run across something you think I'd like, please reach out to me!
Reiko Tamura from Parasyte
My site to Reiko Tamura from Hitoshi Iwaaki's manga series Parasyte is one of my favorite sites. I like it because it was so different to make, being my first manga-related project. I learned so much about Japanese culture, society, and language while creating it. Parasyte is a fascinating series that any science fiction or horror entusiast should read. This site introduces the series to new fans while analyzing an incredibly intriguing character. Reiko had me asking a lot of questions when I first read the series. I'm happy to have explored answers to most of those in this site. Hopefully I inspire someone to pick up this great series. It's now an anime as well.
Hei from Darker Than Black
I've been wanting to make a site to my favorite anime, Darker Than Black, for a long time. Talking with my friend and fellow fan, Samantha, and learning she wanted to shrine Yin from the series, I decided to shrine my favorite character, Hei, and we signed up together for Dynamic Duos at Amassment. Hei happens to be the main character in the series, so this is quite a project, but it's a lot of fun, and I feel like I'm up to the challenge. This site is definitely one that will continue to grow after I debut it, though. If I try to analyze every aspect of Hei right away, I'll never get done.
