Basic Info:

1. My name is Kim Morrissy, although most people call me Frog-kun on the Internet, or Froggy. I’m a Tokyo Correspondent for Anime News Network, although I occasionally translate and write for other sites like Crunchyroll. This is my personal blog where I discuss general anime-related things that interest me.

2. If you scroll through the front page, you’ll find I like to preface a lot of my posts with memes or macros. That’s why it’s called Fantastic Memes, even though it’s not a blog specifically about Internet memes.

3. This is predominantly an anime blog. That being said, the scope is very broad. Not only do I write about the latest anime, I also write about other forms of Japanese pop entertainment, predominantly light novels but also manga and visual novels. I also write often about fandom and otaku subculture. Occasionally, I might post about something unrelated as it just so happens that I have a life outside of anime, but I’ll generally try to link the topic to anime somehow for the sake of consistency.

4. I update about once a week. But I don’t have a strict updating schedule, so bear that in mind.

Why Follow This Blog?

This is a good blog to read if you’re interested in alternative perspectives about anime, manga and light novels. I try to shed light on underappreciated topics like the anime industry, the art of animation and untranslated light novels. I’m a Tokyo correspondent and a freelance translator, so I’m particularly interested in cultural differences and translation issues. 

I also believe in having fun with fiction. You’ll see posts about shipping, crazy fan theories and joke lists alongside the more informative content. In general, I try to keep the tone of my posts light-hearted and fun to read.

Look at the sidebar to the right for some recommended posts on this blog. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the topics and discussion on my posts. Feel free to comment and share your thoughts!

  15. Hi! I’ve been lurking/following your blog for a while now and I just wanna say I’m a fan of your content 😊

    I’ve been wanting to ask but I’m quite embarrassed to ask this.. but was wondering if you would be willing to pick up the translation of the final volume light novel of Fate/Apocrypha? The first 4 volumes have been translated from 2013-2017 but it seems that the translators have already become inactive and no longer have plans of translating the 5th (last) volume. I know an anime about it has been made but I heard they skipped a lot of the material so I was really hoping that someone would pick up the translation of the final volume of the light novel. I have a copy of the light novel scans but I can barely read Japanese so I have no way of reading it. I really hope you would consider picking it up :( But no pressure, I know that you are busy with a lot of other things too ✌
