The common approach to anime blogging is to feature terrible “reviews” of the latest fansubbed garbage, three dozen pictures of some loser’s recently acquired girl figure or pages of embedded YouTube links. This sucks. It’s uninteresting and creates a dialog just barely above your average web-forum idiot-banter. Yet with few notable exceptions, most anime blogs follow this awful trend and fandom is all the worse for it.
If the Internet is such a great tool for expressing opinions and ideas that can’t be found in more mainstream publications or venues, then why is anime fandom so brain dead and vapid? We can’t answer that, but we can show you that it doesn’t have to be that way. We can’t stop people from creating awful anime sites, but we can make one that doesn’t suck.
That anime site is Colony Drop.
We write about ridiculous Japanese cartoons with a dedication to interesting writing and a sense of humor. No one’s fooling themselves into thinking that writing about cartoons is serious business, but that doesn’t mean it has to be stupid business.
Our enemies: earthnoid, moé, and embarrassing fandom.
A hunter of peace, one who chases the elusive mayfly known as love.
