My First Post!
Hi everyone! I decided I might as well make a blog for my thoughts about anime since I’m always talking about it anyway. Seems like it would be a good experience for me and it’s nice to get my thoughts out there.
Well for starters, I’m a big anime enthusiast that goes by the username Miles vi Britannia. The name comes from Miles Edgeworth, a character from the Ace Attorney games, and Lelouch vi Britannia, the protagonist of Code Geass, if any of you are familiar with those two series. My favorite anime include Gurren Lagann, Code Geass, Clannad, and Steins;Gate. I’m also a fan of manga, with my favorites being 20th Century Boys, Fullmetal Alchemist, Future Diary, Liar Game, and Zatch Bell. Recently I’ve also been more interested in visual novels and light novels, so I’m looking forward to discussing those once I get around to some.
As for the blog’s name, I discovered the word “anemoscope” when looking through a list of soundtracks for the anime Kanon (which I’m watching right now and will write about in the near future). Curious about this word, I looked up the definition and found that it is is a device that shows the wind’s direction or foretells the change of wind direction or weather. In the same way, I am going to write about the direction of whatever series I come across and follow how it progresses. Considering the spontaneous nature of this discovery, I’m quite fond of this name and figured it was one that I wouldn’t see many others use so I chose that.
As I just mentioned, I recently began watching Kanon (2006). I have thoroughly enjoyed the Key series I have seen before and have been meaning to see this one for a while, though it was not until recently that I actually started and decided to go through with finishing. I have watched and enjoyed the 2002 version of the Kanon anime but I have heard that 2006 is much better and I look forward to seeing how much I enjoy it.
In any case, I’m looking forward to the blogging experience. This is my first time trying this out so I hope that I enjoy it and that perhaps my writing may be of use to some anime fans out there.
