Thank you everyone for visiting my blog!
I especially appreciate interesting comments of these regular visitors
These are some of the most popular posts, but I find that the posts that I like the most tend to get very little attention, possibly, because they are about some obscure aspects of Japanese culture that very few people care about…
The lack of posts here and comments on your blogs in the recent months was due to a very busy time at work, trying to finish everything, and re-location. However, while this phase is complete, another one is beginning.
The timing of this milestone is peculiar because it marks another stage in my life: tomorrow I start my journey to a doctorate. Professors mentioned several times that they will make us work very hard and suggested for us to allocate a few hours per week to some extracurricular activity to keep our sanity because the rest of the time we are expected to study! However, I hope it will be a fun time as well because I worked very hard to get here, and I am very excited to start the program
Certainly, I’ll be unable to produce regular daily posts like I did before (my average was about 20 posts per week at some point), but I hope to publish once or twice a month, and, of course, I’ll spam on my Twitter
Episodic coverage is unlikely, but I might post my thoughts on the anime I watch ( if I’ll have time to do that ). Very few new anime caught my attention ( drink a cup of tea every time you see mid/high-school student in synopses of summer lineup ), so I’ll probably focus on some older films. If I had to choose one, it would be Moribito because it is by Nahoko Uehashi. Also, I’ll continue writing brief posts on Japanese culture and art in general.
Thank you again for visiting Kitsune’s Thoughts!
