Tempest’s Downpour – Anime In-Jokes 10: Anime Emotions
On top of being bright, colorful and completely insane, anime tends to have a wide variety of super-expressive emotions. It can be a struggle for first-time anime viewers to keep up with all the symbols racing around the screen or page. Even seasoned veterans of anime don't understand every circumstance for every facial symbol.

Tempest’s Downpour – People Who Try To Be Like Us
With the recent rise of nerd-power, interesting trends have begun taking place revolving around us. Yes, us: the not-so-little community that eats, drinks and breathes anime. Though we're still far from the mainstream's consciousness, other underground groups have begun openly embracing the programs we have sold our collective right arm for.

Leviathan Mist’s Memories Of 91.8 The Fan – Contest

An Otakon Debriefing With The Owl In The Rafters
Three days after Otakon 2011 weekend and I'm still recovering from the headache...

Kung Fu Fighting with the Owl in the Rafters
Welcome back! I hope you're ready to digest another list of recommended titles, as I've been encouraged to break away from the basic themes of my job description and look away from anime and manga whenever I feel appropriate.

Tempest’s Downpour – Looking Forward with Manga
Tokyopop, America’s biggest manga publishing company, is gone. We have no reassurance as to who will take over all of their old titles. But there’s a silver lining amidst these storm-clouds. With a titan like Tokyopop gone, the smaller publishing companies get the chance to shine.

Kayarath’s Adventures In KROZE!!!!
Being part of the staff here at 91.8 The Fan is a seriously great thing. It’s rewarding in so many different ways I can’t even count them all. However, there is one benefit in my mind that reigns supreme above all others. By being part of 91.8 The Fan, I get to call myself a comrade of Kroze.
