An intro for the sake of intros

Hello everyone, this is Zodd speaking and I just want to welcome you to the Bebop. My goal for this site is to discuss and analyze the things I find interesting associated with East Asian cultures and societies, anime, manga, video games, and anything else I can think of.

Now, I’m not going to act like an authority or academic on any of the topics I’ll discuss. Nor do I really care to have such labels attached to me. This is merely an outlet to talk about the things I like and find interesting.

Like I said earlier, East Asia will be the focus with anime, subcultures, manga, and other relevant topics sprinkled in. The things I’ll talk about will vary from each other. Just to give an example, I’ll do my best to go in-depth on particular music genres of certain countries. I will try and provide an understanding of the inner workings of certain subcultures or groups that reside in the country being mentioned. And just show how enthusiastic I am when talking about everything to do with this region of the world.

When to trying to figure out how to express my ideas, I was not entirely to sure how to go about it. I thought maybe creating YouTube videos would be best, but that requires a lot of time and effort which I am desperately short of. After coming across an anime blogger that I used to follow back around 2009-2010ish, I decided blogging would be the best option. It’s flexible and helps me with improving my writing skills, another thing that I desperately need to work on.

I know this all probably sounded really corny, but just bare with me, it only gets worse from here. I do work a full-time job so I may not have a consistent schedule for putting post up, but I’ll do my best. Updates on post and what’s going on with myself can be seen on my Twitter and if you want to watch me be shit at games follow my Twitch channel as well. I don’t have a set schedule, but I’ve been doing my best to play every night for a couple hours.

Don’t believe in yourself. Believe in me! Believe in the Zodd who believes in you!    – Zodd referencing Kamina
