About This Blog
Chikorita157’s Anime Blog is a personal Anime Blog, which I started back in February 2009 when I decided to blog about Anime. Although I have watched Anime for over 10 years, this is my first serious effort in maintaining a site dedicated to Anime. On this blog, I share my thoughts on what I’m currently watching and share my overall thoughts. Also, I write various editorials and features focusing on the fandom, personal experiences and analyzing certain aspects of shows I want to write more about.
As for the theme, I used the Genesis Framework to start and build from there and for graphics, I use Adobe Photoshop. It’s all hosted on a Virtual Private Server running Ubuntu, which I manage located in Las Vegas. My current hosting provider is BuyVM.
About the author
Chikorita157 (real name: James) is an American Born Chinese who is currently in civil service, I spend my free time lurking on the Internet, playing video games, programming and learn Japanese. For the shows I prefer, I mostly watch slice of life, comedy and romance. However, I will watch anything as long it’s not shouen action (e.g.: Naruto) or mecha and doesn’t have too much fanservice, it’s fine.
My current favorite anime are Clannad (both seasons), Kanon, Suzumiya Haruhi (First Season), AIR, K-ON, Madoka Magica, and The Idolmaster. There are also shows that is worth mentioning, but not my favorites such as Tantei Opera Milky Holmes and Ikoku Meiro no Croisèe.
I do cover some gaming on my blog, but mostly Japanese games since this is an Anime blog, not a gaming blog.
