Yes – it’s a new post (and a big apology obviously)

Yuri on Ice

Hi there,

You may have been wondering where I have been. Well, actually I’m guessing you haven’t.

Let’s be honest, this is a very minor blog, which is why I haven’t updates in ages, although I have still been doing my work for MyM and Anime UK News. My anime writing for On The Box however dried up, and I had to put “The Beginner’s Guide to Anime” on hold while having to focus on more mainstream British TV coverage. Luckily, during that time more anime is being shown on UK TV, albeit on Viceland, a channel with small viewing figues.

The updates stopped mainly due to my work for the British Comedy Guide, covering the Edinburgh Fringe, and because of that everything else got put on hold, and due to the small number of people who visit this blog it didn’t feel much point in updating it.

However, I’ve now written a new “Beginner’s Guide”, and as the Winter Olympics are coming up I’ve covered Yuri!!! on Ice. I’m certainly hoping one of the skaters at the games performs to their music.

Again, sorry for the lack of updates. I intend to be more active in future. Luckily I got a new computer, meaning everything should be much quicker to do.
