The Roost

Welcome to Phoenix Talks! For now, you can refer to me as Rise (Get it? Phoenix, rising… maybe not) You’ve probably stumbled upon this blog since you too have an interest in Japanese popular culture.

Unfortunately, I will be going a breif hiatus. A little ironic and weird since this will only be my third month as a blog. The real world doesn’t seem to slow down, even as a blogger. I’m hoping I’ll be back soon, please check out my previous content and drop a comment if you can!

I’ve done a bit of work to better explain my background with posts introducing; How I Got Into JDramas, How I Got Into JMovies, and How I Got into Anime. I’m hoping despite my hiatus to have more about Manga, Jpop, Visual Kei and maybe even more in the future!

I have played around with creating a blog for several years, with fits and starts. I’m fairly active in my private circles but I rarely reach out to non-in real life friends. I’m hoping with starting this blog that I’ll be able to make some interesting content, and branch out my circles that I’m active in.

I’m hoping to re-focus in on Japanese music when I come back, which is my biggest passion, but I have a hard time writing about. I’ll continue to talk about JDramas, Anime, Manga, and more!

Mostly I have wanted to talk about JDramas, Visual Kei, JPop, Idols, Anime, Manga, and so much more! Please leave me a comment if you like my material and let’s get talking!
