Welcome to blogging Mabdese! (added by ExecutiveOtaku)

Dearest readers, friends, and hangers-on of THAT!  ExecutiveOtaku here, and it is my pleasure to introduce to you the newest member of our blogging team/family/international hikkikomori conspiracy: Mabdese! She has impressed us with the breadth of her interests and experience in the fandom, and we hope you will welcome her to the blog and enjoy her entries. Ah, to think that only a few months ago I was the newbie and now I’m introducing our newest writer. Oh the transience of blogging youth! Without further ado, I hand the remainder of this post over to my good friend Mabdese.  Welcome to the team!

Hello all you readers out there in THAT land! It is I your newest addition to the blogging crew, Mabdese. I’ve come to you from a distant land to save you from the mediocrity that plagues all of our lives. For my first series I’ll be reviewing Kobato and probably doing recaps of this seasons hot new j-drama Samurai High School. I’m sure you must be wondering what anyone could add to this wonderful blog but I’ll do my best to do the following things:

- Adding my unique feminine/old school insight into anime in weekly editions of reviews/recaps.

- Review some j-drama, stage plays, albums, and other tangential aspects of anime.

- Keep a keen eye out for overlooked animes.

- Have a wonderful sense of humor about otakudom.

Now I know you, you’re thinking hold up, who is this? so I’ll introduce myself properly. I’ve been in anime fandom for nearly 11 years now ever since attending a sci-fi convention and accidentally watching Eva.  I am an avid (sometime rapid) fan of 90′s anime and probably one of the last people to hop the bandwagon before for the internet. In case you are wondering about my street cred, I watched Macross  7 in my friends basement on third generation VHS with the subtitles nearly unreadable back in ’99.

I’ve been involved in the behind the scenes for a few conventions, been the head of panels, written fanfics and done some cosplay. I have shaken the hands of many seiyuus I admire and connected with some really great friends through anime. By day I’m your average 20-something with a full time desk job. I  live Seattle, WA currently but grew up in NYC and double majored in linguistics and communications with a minor of Japanese. I love to cook and write and play video games. My anime interests are usually more girly with some my favorite series being Saikano, Earth Girl Arjuna, Paradise Kiss, and Blue Sub 6. I happen to like ecchi series a lot as well especially ones like Oku-sama wa Joshi Kosei, GreenGreen, and REC. My favorite anime might just be Record of Lodoss War. I own nearly all the merchandise produced for the series from wall scrolls to little action figures.

If you’re still not convinced I’m clearly awesome I submit this to you:

This is my soap dish. Yes, this is actually my soap dish.

I look forward to my time blogging here at THAT and hopefully forging more friendships through anime! Please support me~

      Your comment probably got cut off because you used the less-than/greater-than signs.

    Samurai high school samurai seriously? :) i recently watched the first episode. Besides the colourfull, well shaven samurai fight scene that looked a bit too polished i enjoyed it.

    Also will you feature in a beach episode and an onsen one? And which road will you take? My otp for you is EO but a harem ending would be ok as well.

    THAT’s going through a rebirth isn’t it. New writers, new design and everything

      Sorto. The new design was due for ages. New writers, no clue perhaps it’s for the sake of cookies. Everything else? There’s mastercard.

    Welcome, looking forward to future blogs from a female perspective, and no Impz crossdressing as a high school girl doesn’t make it a female blog >_<. Anywho nice to know therewill be more blogs with a feminine touch. Also if I c any DAWWSSS of shoujo anime ur going into EO's category (in my mind) and lemme tell u it ain't a good category, bad lighting, oven doesn't work, the ac is broken its now a heater, the window doesn't close, holes in the wall, and you only get a carpet as a blanket. Not the kinda place you wanna be.

    @Shin: What's wrong with 20-somethings? Is it the average part?
