An Interesting Turn of Events

I'm pleased to be able to share some rather exciting news - starting this season, I'll be joining Random Curiosity as a regular contributor.

First and foremost, let me say that this blog will go on uninterrupted, and hopefully better than ever. I think this is a great thing for Lost in America - for a new blog like mine, the chance to interact with the readers of a monstrously popular site like RC is a fantastic opportunity. I'm extremely grateful to Divine at RC both for asking me to join the writing staff, and for being open to me continuing to blog for both sites.

What will this look like? Well, as I see it the synergy should be great. I'll be picking up a couple of Spring shows for RC that are covered here, and for those I'll blog them on both sites. Ongoing, the plan is for me to cover different shows on RC and LiA. It looks like 4-5 shows total this season on RC - we'll see how many after that, but it should be around that number. I'll blog a number of shows here apart from those 4-5 - maybe a few less than I have been, in order to preserve my sanity (blogging 14 shows at once is a lot) but still a good selection.

Of course, this blog being my personal project I'll keep the manga, movie, TV, travel, wine and whatever other miscellaneous topics strike my fancy posts coming - but blogging current (and occasional older) anime series will continue to be the focus. This place will continue to be busy and updated with care and passion by yours truly - albeit hopefully with even more readership. Of course, any feedback you can share with me about making this site better will be read, replied to and carefully considered. And much appreciated as well - please talk to me and keep the comments coming.

So to sum it up: I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining Random Curiosity, and very excited about what this can mean for Lost in America (tonight, we've already broken our record for visits in a day). RC was the first anime blog I followed regularly, and one of the main inspirations for me to start this one. It's an honor to be invited to work there and I'll write with diligence, passion and commitment. I thank everyone who follows Lost in America from the bottom of my heart, and I hope you'll like what I do with the site in the future. This is an exciting day for me and I can't wait for the Summer Season to get started!

Thanks,
Guardian Enzo

  2. You know... LiA is going to get even more readers when the season starts—myself included. Glad you joined RC because I probably wouldn't have found this blog. ^_^

    Nice to meet you and I hope for the best!

  10. Amazing stuff. I would have loved to find out about this site sooner! Glad to have you join Random Curiosity. May I suggest a new link that explores that has a review of an entire series? I would much love to read up on any of my favorite animes and see your opinions on them (Including Cross Game!)

  11. Thanks to all for your kind comments. Anonymous, I do have a "Series Reviews" tag in the category dropdown - every series I blog is included in that. There are some spoilers in those, though - with the exception of the older series I review. To look at just those (shows like Cross Game and Natsume) you can also pull up the "Series Recommendations" category.

    Thanks again!

  12. Congratulations,you deserve it!!

    Now I'll be able to show off and say I knew you before you were "famous" ;)

    Off topic personal sidenote:

    The only computer I've had the last few weeks is the one in the public library but it blocks off animesuki (torrents) so I'm very thankfull for blogs like yours that can show me other people's opinion of the anime that I watch.

  14. I have been following your blog since Occult Academy (I never commented mind you) so I'm glad to see that your will be posting for a wider audience.

    And on a personal note it would give me a good excuse to finally visit random curiosity on a regular basis.

  15. LOL! All that is music to my ears, Blaat. Good to hear from you.

  16. Congratulations!

    This looks like a great opportunity for you.
    I haven't been following this blog as long as some others here, but I enjoy reading your well written posts very much and you definitely deserve more recognition.

    As for the 4-5 shows you will be blogging at Random Curiosity, Personally I hope that Natsume Yuujinchou San will be one of these. (more people reading and the site looks like it is much in need of someone to blog about this wonderful series.)
    And as much as I like to read your posts, please don’t overwork yourself.

  17. Stay tuned, Niana - I think there's a very good chance of that.

  18. As I already wrote over on RC, you writing there now is just all kinds of amazing! :).
    For a year now RC has been at the top of the anime blog folder in my feedreader and LiA directly below it so I guess this was kinda destined to happen :D ;) :).
    I'm glad you are now suddenly getting a way bigger audience and lots more comments, you've earned it with your great writing!
    I don't know what elese to write without paraphrasing my comment over RC too much, so let me just say: Ganbatte! :)

  19. Arigato, Engage! It's been exciting - yesterday I beat my one-day record by about 7X, so it's a whole new era at LiA.
