New Blog!

Hey everyone. Welcome to my new blog, Casually Anime. I have a very popular blog called "H00k Games" where I discuss my journeys through developing video games. However, sometimes I want to deviate from that and discuss other things. That's where the idea for Casually Anime came from.

On Casually Anime, I'll be posting the latest anime news and my personal anime reviews. I'm not sure how frequent my reviews will be as I only watch anime casually, but I'll try to add them as constantly as possible.

Hopefully you enjoy my blog!
