Holy crud, how long has it been?

So sorry for not posting much at all for the last….4-5 months? Things have just been really hectic these last few months with numerous developments (some good, some bad).

The Bad:

– I was left feeling that I had no choice but to resign from my job due to the behaviour of the person who was supposed to be my mentor. Since then, I have been trying to find more work (to no avail).

– I had a good month or two where my laptop was broken due to a random keyboard issue. All fixed now though!

The Good:

– Some of you might know that I am the Editor of a Nintendo fan-website “WiiUAndMii.com” – recently, the website has started to gain the attention of major video game publishers, including Nintendo themselves. Me and another writer even had press passes for this year’s EuroGamer Expo! In the run up to major game launches like Pokémon X and Y, this has meant that I have had to dedicate a lot of my time to writing about that (or else I’ll get emails from companies asking why I hadn’t!).

– I have also been working with Nintendo’s community side in running local “StreetPass” events – this has meant that I have had to organise monthly events for Nintendo enthusiasts to meet up and play games.

 

So yeah, I’m going to try to update a lot more now and now is the perfect time, now that we’re in new anime season! Sorry for the silence!

Welcome to “Tsundere Britannica”

Hello Everynyan!

Welcome to a little place I like to call “Tsundere Britannia”. My name is Josh A. Stevens and I’ve been a huge fan of video games, anime and manga for a long time now. In the past, I have written news articles for fan-websites such as PokémonWorld.co.uk (even helping Nintendo UK to promote Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version) and I currently write news and features for both WiiUAndMii.com and Bulbagarden (the latter of which I am also a senior staff member of the forums). 

I had the idea to start “Tsundere Britannia” – a site where I will post reviews and features about various aspects of games, anime and manga, when I attended the London MCM Comic Con in May 2013 – I finally had a chance to meet many people from the UK anime industry, as well as speak to representatives from Nintendo UK. I was left truly overwhelmed by just how friendly, approachable and passionate everyone I spoke to was. Having recently had a bad spell with some people at my workplace, it was a huge relief to see this warmer, more inviting atmosphere and I realised that this was an industry I wanted to be a part of.

Anyways, you might be wondering why I decided to call this “Tsundere Britannica”. Well, “Britannica” because I’m British, obviously. “Tsundere” comes from an archetype of anime character (more information can be found on Wikipedia). I tend to really like tsundere characters, such as Misaka Mikoto in A Certain Magical Index/Scientific Railgun, Shana in Shakugan no Shana and Taiga Aisaka in Toradora. Which is why Britannica’s mascot is, fittingly, a tsundere. Let me introduce you all to Brit-tan (Get it? :P):
