jrafanan initially ran from in 2003-’04 as the original domain for a collection of sketches, photography, and blogs I created and wrote as I made the transition from high school to university life.
After closing the domain to keep up with my studies, I continued to blog about my daily musings, but I always longed to someday bring jrafanan back to the web.
In 2005, I began keeping up with seasons of anime as they aired on a weekly basis, which eventually had me averaging at least 3 shows a week to watch. I also grew fond of anime blogging sites and their ability to keep me informed, entertained, and anticipated for a new airing or an old show I may have missed.
jrafanan represents my domain’s evolution from hobbyist repository to a more focused, inspired niche website that combines an outlet for my growing skill set in photography with a passion for all things anime.
