Freelance Writing: Anime

Anime has been part of every stage of my life. Child me was pretending to be Sailor Moon and writing self-insert Pokémon fanfiction where I was Gary Oak’s girlfriend. Teenage me was cosplaying Chi from Chobits at Otakon and writing essays on the Sohma family for my AP Psychology class. College me stayed up all night moderating a Death Note fanfiction community on Livejournal. Grown-up me is a freelance writer with a specialty in anime.

If you want to see what I’m to, here are a few links!

Ranker

I’m a regular contributor to the Anime Underground vertical at Ranker. My articles pull in 360k views per month, with one of my most popular articles clocking in at 1 million all-time views. Whether I’m ranking the best anime of the season or defending Sakura Haruno against haters, I’m always having a blast writing about anime!
