This is the blog of Karen Mead, writer, geek, and over-analyzer supreme. The name Otakusphere came from the fact that I used to be a pretty huge anime fan, but while my interest in anime has faded a bit, I’m still into all sorts of nerdy things that tend to cross over with anime fandom. Expect long rants, episodic posts about 20-year-old cartoons and games that nobody asked for, and maybe even drawings if I can get my damned scanner hooked up again.
