If my sidebar wasn’t enough for you, I guess there are a few more things I can say about myself.

First and foremost, I’m an American college student currently living in 愛知県/Aichi-ken, Japan. I’m a double major in English lit and East Asian Studies with a concentration in Japanese studies. Right now I’m studying to achieve JLPT N3, though obviously the end goal is N1 capability. Kanji is my Achilles heel, forever and always.

In my spare time I enjoy doing…well, a lot. I’m a cosplayer and photographer, an equestrian, a violinist, an artist, and a writer (English prose only for now, though we’ll see what happens if I take any Japanese creative writing classes). If you’ve heard my blog title before, it’s probably because it’s also my cosplay page name. I’d like to keep them separate, but until I come up with a better title for this blog, I guess it’s staying like this.

Also, if it wasn’t apparent, I love video games, and anime is okay too I guess. I don’t watch a whole lot of it any more, but I keep up-to-date with a few series like 黒執事 (Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler), Log Horizon, .hack, アルスラーン戦記 (Arslan Senki/The Heroic Legend of Arslan), and a few more.

I’m also a ミュージカル黒執事 (Kuroshitsuji musical) addict, so you’ll find me doing a lot of things pertaining to that, as well.

Thanks for stopping by. As always, I’m looking to improve my language capabilities, so if you have any translation suggestions or criticisms, please point them out to me! I’d appreciate it greatly.
