I thought about calling this column Presidential Ramblings, but I was afraid it would bring to mind State of the Union addresses instead of reflections on all things Japanese and not Japanese.
Actually, First-Class, Unlimited Musings is a direct homage to the classic manga and anime series Oh My Goddess! that also inspired our club’s name. The title reflects my hope that my musings will be, if not first class, at least not lame. And of course, there is the unlimited number of topics I can, and probably will, cover. From basic anime reviews and club news to academic discussions of manga archetypes and Japanese culture, expect anything and everything from me.
I hope First-Class, Unlimited Musings will get not just you, our club members, to think, react, and comment. I also hope it will attract people from across the Inland Empire and the world to get involved and make our club’s virtual community a more interactive and exciting place to be.
Feel free to suggest some future topics. I don’t promise to listen, but if you inspire me, I just might take up the challenge. And remember, these are First-Class, Unlimited Musings, so I promise no lies and, though I can’t grant your heart’s desire, I will generally keep things clean and polite.
If you have no idea what that previous paragraph means, you need to read Oh My Goddess! That’s all for now. Check back regularly for more from me, your club president.
