Hey, this is Rachel Kelly. But you can call me Rai :3
Firstly, if you are wondering why my pseudonym is Rai, it’s because Raichu is my favorite Pokemon and is very much like myself. It is a mouse– small, petite, and quiet. This definition is pertinent to me. Although I am 26, I look like a real life loli. I am tiny and fragile. I am also very shy and quiet.
However, despite being a mouse, Raichu has one distinguishing feature: its ability to produce deadly lightning. This relates to me as well. No, I can’t control electricity (unfortunately), but I have one special talent- my writing. I have extreme difficulty communicating verbally, but for some reason when I write, everything comes out clearly. And usually shocks whoever is not used to hearing this little mouse’s voice or opinion.
Besides that, all you really need to know if that I am a queer female. I am gender fluid, but am only attracted to girls, with the exception of my fiance who is a transgender. They recently started transitioning from female to male. I have a huge passion for yuri and anything involving cute girls!
Because I love writing, I went to college and got a Bachelor of Arts in Writing. I also received my Master’s Of Arts in Teaching (with a concentration in English) in 2017.
Outside of this blog, I work for a small company that writes content for Samsung. I also tutor English and writing, and do freelance work for educational companies. Occasionally, I also do work for Anime News Network. Because I work 40 hours a week and am always running around doing other stuff, I apologize if my posting schedule is sporadic at times.
I am always open for business requests! Feel free to contact me for business inquiries, though I apologize if I do not reply right away.
You can also follow me on social media if you want to get to know more about me!
What You Should Expect From This Blog
As a writing major and someone who went to grad school, I have written a myriad of research papers and analytical pieces. Many of my blog posts are going to analyze and discuss different aspects of anime. However, sometimes I might write lighter pieces, reviews, or personal things.
Although I love a plethora of anime, in terms of genre, this blog is going to be mostly focusing on yuri, cutesy anime, magical girls, idols, and slice of life. I am also a huge Pokemon fan. However, I am going to try to mix things up as much as possible. I will try to post as often as I can.
Here is an example of the kind of adorable, yuri-ish anime and characters that I can’t resist:
