Anipulse is yet another voice in the cacophony that is the world of anime blogging. The bulk of content will be composed of episodics – weekly blogs extolling the virtues and denouncing the failings of a small selection of shows from the current season of anime. The rest of the posts will mostly be reviews of entire anime series, past and present, with the odd opinion piece every now and then.
About the Author
Michael King, known online primarily as processr, is an twenty-year-old third-year Mathematics student at the University of Southampton in the south of England. When he isn’t being soul-crushingly boring, he tends to wile away the hours watching
Chinese cartoons anime and then getting more worked up about it than he really ought to be. While he had grown up with televised anime – Pokémon, Dragonball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh! etc. – his first knowing experience of anime was in late 2007 at the recommendation of a long-time friend who suggested he should watch Fullmetal Alchemist. Fifty-one short episodes later, and he wanted more. His gateway drug into anime fandom, as it were, was Death Note. Ohba and Obata’s masterpiece taught him that there was more to the medium than the bastardised, kid-friendly Saturday morning show. Since then he has gone on to watch many hundreds more hours of anime, from the best to the worst, and made his first foray into the anime blogosphere with Anipulse.
