Oh, how my priorities have shifted.
I’m going to start this blog post with a disturbing admission: I wish I had never promised the Your Name Project, because now it is forever on my mind until I finish it. It is not hyperbole when I say that it has kept me up at night. The quality of video that I want to produce is going to take a lot of work, and I just don’t know if I alone am up to the task. My passion has certainly waned, and currently my attention is being torn away by a hundred different things.
I haven’t produced another video since Anime Japan. I haven’t written anything about my travels. I haven’t even been to any noteworthy anime pilgrimages.
Instead, I’ve been studying, and exploring other interests—including writing fiction. And I think, for now, I’m content with that. So, I’m sorry if you’re still eager to hear all my formulated thoughts and opinions on anime, but I’m currently on hiatus. Again. I have about 3 months left before I return to my home country, and perhaps then I’ll return to aniblogging.
Until then, I’d like to thank you for reading. I’m still shocked every once in a while when I check my metrics to see that people are still reading my articles. I wish I could supply you all with even more compelling, but alas, that takes time and effort that I just don’t currently have–like I used to. Hopefully I find it once again. And if I do, I hope you’ll give it a chance again. Thank you.
