Update: Photos from Toracon 2017 will be uploaded May 6.
How have I gone for so long without updating this? I can’t believe I would make that mistake… Okay, so that’s not true, I can totally see me doing that. Which isn’t hard, because I just did it.
Welcome to The Fullmetal Narcissist’s weekly anime blog! You can call me Naru for short. I express my otaku addiction with an update on Saturday morning of every week, posting both new and old content for your reading pleasure. I post reviews, lists, editorials, song lyrics, trivia samples, and other writing projects.
As for my otaku history… Well, like a lot of people my age and below, I was introduced to anime at a young age through an abrupt Pokemon obsession. I stuck to that, Sailor Moon and Dragonball Z for a long while, before my fanhood was revolutionized by Cardcaptors. That was the show… As well as the mangas in my public library… that got me interested in pursuing animes that weren’t being broadcast on my TV. It got me into fanfic writing, which lead to me becoming interested in writing in the first place.
From there, I got into Azumanga Daioh and Excel Saga, and the rest, as they say, is history.
To be honest, I was still just viewing anime as a light-hearted past-time at the time, checking out the other ADV shows that were being advertised on my Excel Saga DVDs, when I was suddenly thrust into a life long obsession by Fullmetal Alchemist, which has been my favorite show of any variety for about six years now.
I’ve gone farther and farther down the rabbit hole over the last ten years, and with hundreds of title under my belt, I’ve created this blog to pass my collected knowledge onto you!
I will take requests for reviews, if there’s a show you’d like me to write about, but for the sake of convenience, please make it 26 episodes or less.
Oh, and if you’re so inclined, you can find our Youtube channel at the link below. We’ve done some video reviews, as well as some other cool stuff, so check it out!
