I made a blog post about this over at "the old home" back in December when I launched it, but with a new home comes a need to bring this topic back up. I had done video reviews over on YouTube for close to a year, but I decided that anime reviews are easier to do when written, not to mention you can take your time reading it rather than listen to my at the pace that I dictate, so I finally decided to start up my own blog... It's name?

The Land of Obscusion

Yeah, it's a bad pormanteau of the word "obscure" and the Genesis song "Land of Confusion"... But I like it. Anyway, the blog focuses on anime & manga that have either become forgotten due to the passing of time or just slipped through the cracks and never really got their chance to shine... Or blot out the sun, even. I ran roughshot with reviews during December, but I've since slowed down and now I try to do an avergae of at least one review per week, though sometimes I end up doing multiple reviews in one week. There's also posts about news that I find interesting and worth talking about as well as personal thoughts when I feel I need to talk about it.

Anime reviews & "features" that are out right now are (this list will be updated periodically):
