The Anatomy of a (Semi) Viral Video, and the (Proper) Launch of My YouTube Channel

Well, I can’t say I expected it, but I happily took it. A couple weeks back, after seeing a rather amusing video of a girl struggling to load a tank shell (for context, it was a leaked video from the training in the IDF’s “pilot program”–second attempt–to shoehorn girls into tanks.) It took her overContinue reading “The Anatomy of a (Semi) Viral Video, and the (Proper) Launch of My YouTube Channel”

Post-Convention Thoughts & Takeaways, Part 2 (Or are we at 3 now?)

I don’t recall offhand if I made a post like this after my second convention, but I know I’ve done this once before, and now, after my 3rd convention, I have some more thoughts & observations to share. The convention, Icon, here in Israel, took place about 2 weeks ago now. It was my biggestContinue reading “Post-Convention Thoughts & Takeaways, Part 2 (Or are we at 3 now?)”

3 Days Left to Back Light Unto Another World!

With only 3 days left to go, Light Unto Another World is fully funded on Kickstarter! First off, thanks to everyone who’s backed this campaign for Volumes 6-10 so far. But, we’re not done yet.

The Disappointment of the Shield Hero

I’m sure I’m not alone in remembering when the Rising of the Shield Hero anime took the world by storm a couple years ago. That was shortly after I got back into anime, and shows in the fantasy genre (isekai or otherwise) made up the bulk of what I was watching at the time. SoContinue reading “The Disappointment of the Shield Hero”

Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10 Kickstarter Update, and Travel to Another World Reward Spotlight

Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10: Live Now on Kickstarter!

It’s finally time! I’m excited to finally announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10! While his army training prepared him for many things, Uriel Makkis had not been expecting to be suddenly pulled through a portal and stranded on another world. However, he was always adaptable, and quicklyContinue reading “Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10: Live Now on Kickstarter!”

Coming to Kickstarter: Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10

Well, it took a little longer than I’d anticipated (turns out animation, especially animation as good as Philip made for this project, can take some time to get done), but it’s finally time! The Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10 Kickstarter campaign is launching on Tuesday July 12, at around 12pm Eastern time! The adventureContinue reading “Coming to Kickstarter: Light Unto Another World Volumes 6-10”

Virtue Signaling at its Worst: Punishing People for Things out of Their Control

So amid everything else going on in the world right now, there was one story I was completely unaware of until yesterday, when Rev says desu on Youtube, who covers internet news/drama, especially when it’s relevant to anime & similar things, made a video about it. Watch it below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHr7qyLaKg0 Apparently, there either are orContinue reading “Virtue Signaling at its Worst: Punishing People for Things out of Their Control”

My First Convention as a Seller: A Retrospective

So as some of you might have seen, I did something new a couple weeks ago. I went to a convention (Harucon in Jerusalem) as a book seller, selling my own books of course. It was a great experience, and I look forward to doing so again. (As of writing this, I’m signed up forContinue reading “My First Convention as a Seller: A Retrospective”

A Tale of Plagiarism on Amazon

So a couple weeks ago, I did something I do every couple months over on Amazon, and searched “Miklos Horthy” in books. The reason I do this is partially for ego reasons (as some of you may know, I’ve published my Master’s thesis on Miklos Horthy, and, as one of the only in-print English booksContinue reading “A Tale of Plagiarism on Amazon”
