Let's Share: Other Writers and More


I spend a lot of time on my blog writing editorials and my own thoughts, but I like to help others out as well. A recent comment brought this to my attention again. I know I've somewhat dropped the Let's Share series a bit, but I want to pick it up again. So today instead of blogging about anime or video games, I'm going to share a few people that I think you guys should check out!

The list will be in the following format:

Name and Website -
What do they do? - 
Why should you check them out? -

Check these people out!


Mihoshi - http://futaridehitori.blogspot.com/

Anime Blogger, Japanese Translator 

I found her blog by chance when looking for song lyrics. Outside of translation posts, she has a few that are very inspiring with a mature outlook of the world. Even if you don't really care for Japanese music or need translations, I still recommend checking her blog out!

Rei - http://wanabrar.com/blog/


Anime Blogger, Photographer, and Web Designer

If you've been following my progress since the early days, you would know that I used to write at Rei's website. Eventually things died out, but I'm glad to see that his website is back up and running. Check it out if you have the time!

Iceberg Luffy - https://twitter.com/IcebergLuffy

Anime and Music Enthusiast, Media Reviewer

I haven't known him for too long, but I really like how he keeps his Twitter very active and engaging. I don't view everything, but I can say that I've never seen a negative thought or post from him. He doesn't have an official website yet, so check out his twitter!

じしゃく - https://www.youtube.com/user/jisyaku001


GoddessMaria - https://www.youtube.com/user/GoddessMaria

Youtube Gamers (Specializing in Nintendo Games)

Thought it would be a good idea to group the two Youtubers together. The difference between the two is simple; one commentates in Japanese and the other doesn't. If you're trying to improve your Japanese listening skills, it might be a good idea to check out じしゃく's channel. If trying to improve reading, check out GoddessMaria. If you're not interested in either, just check them both out for their nice gameplay!

That's all for now! I might do more of these in the near future, so stay tuned!

  1. Hey thanks for the mentioned. I'm really sorry about what happened back then. Things where changing and most of the writers like Kenta, Xana and a few others were also busy with college in our final years back then. I do visit you blog sometimes, to see the stuff you share. I really like it since it's totally different from what I have to offer. Keep it up.

    1. No problem! It's alright, I'm not upset about it or anything. I'm just glad to see things running strong again. I'm running a busy schedule too, so it's understandable.

      I'll continue to do my best running Shooting Star Dreamer!

      Thank you for commenting! ^_^

Black History Month with Anime

Today is the last day of February, one of the shortest months of the year, and one that is filled with two holidays. Since I've already addressed Valentine's Day, I thought I'd take the time to talk a little bit about Black History Month. As you may or may not know, Black History Month is a holiday that is present in North America. It's a way to remember, celebrate, and appreciate the history of African-Americans. Instead of doing the normal way of celebrating, I thought I'd combine anime with this holiday as a way to bring awareness, and to share a few of my thoughts as well. I've done a post on diversity in anime  before, and discussed a few of my thoughts on race and physical differences when it comes to characters. Since anime doesn't necessarily list off the races of their characters, it's a little hard to celebrate a certain ethnic group using anime. Although others have found ways to do that, one featuring African-American themed cosplay , I

Learning Japanese Using Anime! Words of Advice

Learning Japanese isn't really an easy feat. The language has a lot of vocab, there's three forms of writing, and not to mention grammar. So while being an otaku, it's easy to turn to anime as a form of education. Since we watch it all the time, why not pick up a few things from it? However, there's a few things you need to watch out for. Watch Out for "Personalized" Forms of Speaking In the Japanese language, there are many ways to address yourself and others. The common word for talking about ourselves is Watashi. However, there are different ways to do this. Another word commonly heard in anime is Boku. We can use this word when we are male speakers. If we are female speakers, we would use the word atashi. While this isn't limited to these set gender roles, saying boku as a female would give a tomboyish image; atashi as a male would seem feminine. We've also experienced other types of this speech. If you're familiar with Narut

Maybe you're running a Tumblr blog and want to keep it active, but you can't be bothered to find and download pictures by searching all the boorus?
