I have been a member of the anime fandom since the early 1990s… over 20 years. In that time I have seen the community grow and evolve in amazing ways. One such way can be seen in how we get access to anime and manga. When I was first getting into Anime, I was very [...]
While we have an anime category, we don’t talk about it in excess (only 26 posts over 7 years). Be that as it may, Fanime is a big event each year for the staff of Snowulf. We’re all fans of anime, no shame in that, but our fandom is something on the quieter side as [...]
