Ayo, how’s it going?
The name’s Aaron, and this is Reading Between! This is my blog, created for the purpose of sharing my thoughts on the stories that have made an impact on me, ranging from anime, to manga, to visual novels, to games, to…well. You get the idea.
As far as who I am, I’m just a college student studying Psychology and Theology, someone who cares very much about the nature of human experiences. I love getting to share my experiences of stories, and furthermore, enjoy hearing about the stories that mean something to others. Any story, as long as it’s meaningful to someone, has value, and searching for that value is something that I feel is very important.
That said, I am also writing in this blog as a means of self-discovery. I know that I care about these human experiences, and have an interest in analyzing these stories that mean so much to me, but beyond that, there’s still a lot I have left to learn. I have yet to establish who I am in many ways, and through writing this blog, refining how I write, what I write about, and more, I hope to learn just a bit more about myself. It’s a constant journey, ya feel?
About Reading Between
Simply put, I’ve started up Reading Between with the intention of analyzing stories, and acknowledging the little theological, psychological, symbolic, literary, cinematic, etc., etc., factors that add to the value of a story.
Of course, that being said, at this point in time, there’s a lot of stuff on the blog. There’s a lot of countdowns and top fives, some statistical analyses, several reviews, and simply personal thoughts on trends I’ve seen in stories in general. Regardless of the specific type of writing, however, I just hope to be able to better appreciate the stories I write about!
Reading Between, as one might guess, was named with this desire in mind. Reading Between the Lines, the Pages, sounded just a bit too cliche, a bit too specific, so instead, I just decided to go with Reading Between. The whole goal then, is to read between the basics of what an anime, game, or manga presents to the audience, and find any deeper meaning that the story has to offer.
Well. If you’d like to contact me, recommend any stories, or just say hi, feel free to hit me up here!
That’s about it- enjoy your stay on the blog!
