October is going to be a special month for me from this point forward.
That’s because something big has happened, something I once thought impossible: I got married.
I won’t go into too many details, but I’ll just say that my wife is a very special person to me, who’s stuck with me through thick and thin. This even includes my time abroad in the Netherlands. I actually met her thanks to Ogiue Maniax, though I wouldn’t recommend writing anime blogs as a way to find relationships.
So I want to give a very, very special thanks to my Patreon members this month, because your continued support lets me pursue this blog as a passion project.

In other, non-matrimonial news, I recently did a series of manga recommendations on Twitter. Check out the thread!
Also, here are my favorite posts from last month:
Recently, I got to thinking about Tomino and all his eccentricities. Here’s my hypothesis on the “Tomino style.”
I reviewed the Heartcatch Precure! novel, which ostensibly focuses more on Cure Moonlight than the anime.
A look at the idea of superheroine sexualization and fetishism as a kind of cultural export, through the lense of the manga Don’t Meddle with My Daughter. It actually got retweeted by the author!
Return to Genshiken
Part 5 of my Genshiken re-read. Ogiue starts her journey here, but it’s Sasahara who really grows.
Self-explanatory, but a fun topic all the same.
Here’s to an exciting new life!
