I never really bought that saying! I’m from the school where things shouldn’t end unless they absolutely have to. With that in mind, it seems like Riuva has become pretty stagnant and, dare I say it, on a steep decline into oblivion. But does it have to be this way? I don’t think so……
This isn’t something I just thought of today, in fact, I’ve been thinking about this for quite sometime; Riuva can be completely retuned and revamped with just of couple dedicated writers chiming in here and there. So, instead of just talking about it, I’m going to be about it. I, G-man, will be the first to spearhead new entries on Riuva starting with answering quite of bit of feedback I’ve been receiving from my posts and coming up with new weekly post for your viewing pleasure.
Before we kick this puppy off I’d just like to brief everyone on some tidbits about myself and my goals.
Question 1: Who are you?
Who am I!? Who am…I!!? Only the most super-duper, ultimate, ecstatic, fantastic, dramatic, eclectic, awesome otaku to ever grace the blogophere!! I eat, drink, sleep, and breathe anime and manga; this is the true way of otaku.
Question 2: What’s your deal?
I’m glad you asked. My deal is to bring some sophistication and depth to otakuism. Of course what this means is that I’ll offer penetrating insights to the nature and substance of both anime/manga and otakuism. Oftentimes individuals fail to see the depth and profound nature of the otaku culture and write it off as fantastical humbug for social outcast and dreamers. I really disagree with such an assessment and believe that anime/manga can, and does, warrant careful analyst and inspection because it is perhaps one of the last pure mediums of raw primal story telling. How do I know this? Well, it’s actually my job to analyze stories, read stories, create stories and recognize good stories.
Question 3: Oh yeah what makes a good story?
There’s actually many ways to go about explaining the nature and characteristic of story, especially good story. I won’t get into that now, but what I will say is that if you stay tuned I promise that by years end you’ll be able to wow your friends with in-depth analyst of story. Hmmmmm sounds good don’t it!?
Ok, let me rap this badboy up. My first real article will come out sometime before weeks end. What will be about it? Don’t know yet. We’re at the embryonic stages of a grand spanking new anime season, so I can do anything from anime series commentaries to something completely unrelated like host club culture. My only hope is that inspire my fellow riuva bloggers, or a new up and comers, to join me in this renewed vision. Yosh! Let’s research some unicultural visual arts!!!
I AM G-MAN!!!!!
