I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
All the kids seem to be into anime these days. Back in the 90’s when I was a teenager, only the most serious of hardcore nerdy trendsetters, such as myself, were seriously into anime.
“Watashi wa otaku da!” We’d announce about ourselves, proudly.
“I’m a nerd!” is the translation. A proclamation of how geeky we were for Japanese cartoons and certain aspects of the culture. We were Otaku! [otaku means geek or nerd] We were were loud, out and proud.
Well, I was, anyway.
I spent a lot of time on SailorMoon.org in the early 90’s, which was basically a place for girls and boys who loved sailor moon to go and talk about the show, share pictures and … well. That was pretty much it. To get totally hipster on you, we were sharing gifs before a lot of y’all tumblr users were born. We’d do AIM chats and talk about everything in our lives, and talk a lot about Sailor Moon.
