Well 2023 is here and I think it is time to sit down and do some housekeeping on the blog. Talk about where we are and where we are going. What can you expect in the next few months? Well let’s get into it all after cut!
Gaps in the Schedule
I’m sure you noticed that I had a few more gaps these last few weeks than usual. A combination of work and a smaller list of anime to choose from made it that way, but still, I wasn’t a fan of it. I have been really good for the last few years of sticking to my 4/5 day routine and I want to maintain that. That said I also don’t want to throw something out for the sake of just doing it. So if there are gaps it is either because of real life commitments, or just a dry spell. Apologies for anyone who might have been off-put by that.
Nekopara Vol 4.
This has been dogging my footsteps for a while now. I started it, put it down and then never touched it again. I said I’d get it done before the end of the year and that…didn’t happen. I’m still committed to doing it and I will get it done this year. For sure, for really really sure. I don’t have much of it left, just gotta get into that pussy.
Video Game Reviews
I have dabbled a bit into this in the blog, mostly in games that anime inspired or anime adjacent. I want to keep that going and you can expect some posts on Fire Emblem and other visual novels as the year goes on, all of them related to anime.
Future Blog Posts
Like I said above. I didn’t get as much done as I wanted this time around, whether it was real life, or schedule or new shoes. Again I’ve never decided that this list is do or die, but I have been proud that I’ve kept to it. What we’ll see now will hopefully be completed and I’m looking forward to getting to them.

As you can see, 2023 has plenty to get one and this time its a bit more approachable. I hope that by the next housekeeping post. I’ll have continued to make good progress. Of course things always change, new shows come and go, and sometimes more time or less is given to me. I do think I can get a lot of this scratched off the list.
