Welcome to Unnecessary Exclamation Mark!!
UEM! was started in the early summer of 2015 as a haphazard attempt to throw random thoughts about anime out of one bored student’s mind and into the blogosphere. Lately it’s become more and more centred on what’s airing each season and less on past shows and that ‘golden era’ of anime or whatever its called. I’ve enjoyed seeing my blogging experience transform and look forward to it going further.
I like to write about anime from critical, literary and Christian perspectives. If you’re a non-Christian and that last part sets off alarm bells, don’t worry – ‘Christianime’ posts are the only place where that stuff happens. Part of what I love about anime is making thoughtful links to Biblical concepts, which may help shed light on a show even for non-Christians. As for being critical, I’m an English student at Oxford University, so expect long sentences! I’m also a budding journalist, however, so expect me to try to shorten them as much as possible.
That’s it I guess. Hope you enjoy the blog!
