This blog was established as a way of organizing our thoughts on anime that had formerly only been rambling conversations over Skype; discourse over distance.
If you see a post titled “Colloquium” it denotes one of these conversations. These posts are often not just dual/team posts, but are meant to be a free-flowing conversation, as a true colloquium, an intellectual discourse between two or more people. Our staff does individual editorials as well, which are categorized by series in the editorials category; however, we want the main focus of our blog to be on discussion. After all posts, but especially with our colloquia, we strongly encourage you to comment, no matter how mundane or profound you may think it is, to promote the discussion. We’re all (rather verbose) talkers and want to discuss anime with each other and you, the reader.
Thank you for visiting our blog and please come again!
A_Libellule was a chap minding his own business on Twitter. After dashing off a few ill-advised remarks about various meta topics, he was summoned to the headmaster’s office and somehow persuaded into writing for a certain blog. When he’s not at university, he can be found watching the world turn in one of the city’s myriad cafés, spending too much time with his nose in a book, and facing the battle of attrition that is the Underground’s Northern Line.
ajthefourth , when she’s not working an unfortunate retail schedule, can be found bemoaning the Red Sox and Packers, running, painting, and fervently wishing that she owned a Bernese Mountain Dog so that she could ride it around like Chiyo-chan from Azumanga Daioh.
bitmap came to write for Altair & Vega after closing down his old blog, Remember XVI.
Blackholeheart is an embarrassingly old weeaboo who was hanging out at the periphery of anime fandom for longer than he cares to say. Due to his former means of employment, if you live in the continental U. S. A. he has likely been closer to your house than you’re probably comfortable with. The last few years have seen him be fairly stationary however. Spending far too much time online lead to his being gang-pressed into writing duties for reasons he’s still not entirely clear on.
When he’s not tending to animals on his farm in the middle of nowhere he’s making a play at being the universe’s most eclectic jack of all trades. He can be found on twitter battling hopelessly broken sleep patterns.
Lily M was recruited for her beautiful and poetic prose on Tiger and Bunny among other series.
The Patches made the mistake of posting a great comment in response to one of vucubcaquix’s Moretsu Pirates posts and was dragged into this blog as a result.
tiboreau was roped into expanding on his insights here after posting concise little 140-character anime reviews on Twitter.
vucubcaquix was hanging around, minding his own business when one day he saw a music tweet from this random crazy girl on twitter and deduced (correctly) that they would have the same music taste. The next thing he knew, he was coercing her into joining this odd thing called the “SCCSAV,” a group of people that watched anime over Skype.
When he’s not at school, he can be found cleaning tiny lenses at his day job in a small factory, riding his scooter around the city, and watching movies.
