My name is Joel Gralton, I am based in Sydney, Australia. During the day I work full time as a website developer but when I’m not doing that I almost always have a controller in my hand playing games or laying back watching anime.
I’ve been passionate about games for as long as I can remember. One of my earliest gaming memories was playing Super Mario World on the SNES and to this day it is still one of the greatest games i’ve ever played. Besides my wife, games are my greatest passion and a great portion of my life is spent consuming games, gaming culture, podcasts and articles. I’m the guy people call crazy because I set alarms to wake up at 3am to watch E3 & Gamescom press conferences.
When it comes to Anime, as with many people my age (I’m in my mid 20’s) that enjoy anime it started with watching Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z on morning TV and I have been hooked for the past 15+ years. I have watched many, many different movies and series over that time that cover vast genres and tend to enjoy most of them.
So why have I started this site?
I decided it was time to express my passion for games and anime through writing and as mentioned above I work as a website developer, so it seemed to make perfect sense to create a website for myself and start blogging here.
You’ll likely see many of my reviews be for the PS4 as that is the current console I have and use the most (closely followed by my PS Vita).
As for anime reviews, they will usually based on the retail DVD/BD release available here in Australia. Majority of Anime available in Australia is published by either Madman Entertainment or Hanabee and will include my opinion of the show and describe any special features (if applicable) that come with the release.
The site will mainly focus on reviews but from time to time will also contain opinion pieces, previews and news if I find it interesting enough to put up a post about.
Feel free to send me an email or comment on the posts and for anyone who takes the time to read my work. Thank You!
