Welcome to my personal web site. Here I have anime reviews, cosplay photos, convention reports and links to other interesting sites. For the uninitiated, anime is short for Japanese Animation. The Japanese have taken animation to levels that are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. This is an art that goes far beyond what most people might expect from simple cartoons. There are stories here that would satisfy any palate. From the heart-wrenchingly tragic (Grave of the Fireflies), to slapstick comedy (Ranma ½), to bittersweet romance (Video Girl Ai), this genre has something for everyone, regardless of age. Please check out the Cons section to see pictorial travelogues of the various anime conventions and events that I've attended with my family and friends.
