What do Evangelion, Sailor Moon, and Miku have in common?

I wrote about these things for RocketNews24 recently!  This has seriously been one of the best gigs I’ve ever had.  I hope you are enjoying my articles, too.  If you know of something cool that you think should have more eyeballs on it, let me know and I’ll see if it’s something I can write about.  Til next time!

Why Haven’t I Done Anything in a Long Time?

Because I got a job writing and translating for RocketNews24!!

This has been a really exciting and thrilling time for me.  I never thought I’d get to do something like this.  As such, every month, I’d like to share a link to my articles with RocketNews24 – the topics are often silly and fun, but I guess that’s the kinds of things I want people to engage with anyway (including anime lyrics).

I will get back to translating lyrics soon, but in the interim, please check out my writing with RocketNews24 and share the articles if you like them!

Thanks *^_^*
