"When I was ten, I read fairytales in secret and would be ashamed if I had been found doing so - Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man, I
put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown-up."
- C.S. Lewis, On Stories
Hello, and welcome to my site!
You probably found this page because you were looking for some information about Japanese cartoons, or "anime". (That's a three-syllable word, by the way; it's probably the first three syllables of the word "animation".)
If you're looking for some advice as to what anime you might want to watch, please take a look at the Anime Primer. If you're looking for pictures of anime characters, you can find a few in the Meganekko Gallery and the Nekojin List. The other subpages here are of more specialized interest; you'd probably only care about them if you know what they are from their names.
I've put the interesting stuff on my subpages:
A collection of links to anime-related Frequently-Asked Question files (including my own Anime Acronym List and my versions of the
Bubblegum Crisis FAQ, rec.arts.anime.fandom FAQ, Anime Primer, and
Some stories I've written, (most) using other people's characters and settings.
A gallery of anime girls who wear glasses. (Yes, the Japanese really do have a single word for "girl who wears glasses".)
My collection of 149 homemade cards, plus hints on how to make your own cards and
a list of the real Ani-Mayhem cards. (Not bad for a game that's been out of print for years, eh?)
Where to find various anime writeups for various tabletop roleplaying game systems.
Yes, this is my entry in the "let's point to everyone else's sites" plague on the Web! Accept no substitutes!
Anything that doesn't fit neatly into the groups listed above.
What, you want to send me some e-mail?
You can get in touch with me at < robkelk -atsign- gmail -period- com >, without the spaces and replacing -atsign- and -period- with the named punctuation. (Sorry to make you go through the trouble of decoding the address; you can blame spammers for that.)
If you're on an easter egg hunt, here are your clues: For the first one, don't do it. For the second one, be noisy.
