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
One year ago today, I joined 91.8 The Fan. As I have spent the majority of my time either on the site or in the IRC, I have loads of memories to share, but I will generally stick to memories from 2010. In the process, I will be profiling some of the staff members as I have perceived them.

An Otakon Debriefing With The Owl In The Rafters
Three days after Otakon 2011 weekend and I'm still recovering from the headache... I'll save you the nitty-gritty for the time being and just make a few comments on the state of the convention scene itself. I am certainly in no position to be calling myself old, but when I see the kinds of kids running around anime conventions in recent years I can't help but feel like there has grown some distinct gap between myself and this ...

Kayarath’s Adventures In Listening To Voices
The Voice Actor is a very usual occupation and the people who become Voice Actors are an interesting lot. They are known to occasionally gather at anime conventions (like AnimeNEXT). If one was to observe them for a prolonged period of time, you could learn many things.

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. So, I've chosen to take this week to elaborate on a personal favorite genre of film, one that has always dwelt in relative obscurity

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.

Stan Lee Invades Japan With The Owl In The Rafters
Welcome back to the rafters! As a patriotic American citizen I feel obligated to do something special for the week of the 4th of July. I considered doing a review of some of the various American cartoons inspired by anime, OEL manga, and similar web-comics, but upon second consideration I found a much better subject to cover: Stan Lee.

Kayarath’s Adventures In Talking With Bleeps!
Tempest wasn't the only Fan writer to interview a cool person at a convention. I went to AnimeNEXT 2011 too you know! I even interviewed someone there! He's known as Chipocrite and he's really cool too! I totally sat down with him somewhere and asked him good questions with deep meanings. Those questions, along with his answers, are here for your reading pleasure.
