About Rai

Hey, this is Rai 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. It’s also because Raichu is very much like myself– a small, petite, quiet mouse.

However, 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: writing. I have difficulty communicating verbally, but when I write, everything comes out clearly. And usually shocks whoever is not used to hearing this little mouse’s voice or opinion.

You should also know that I’m a huge LGBTQ advocate. I’m a queer, gender fluid girl. Usually, I am only attracted to girls, with the exception of my fiance who is transgender (FTM) – he’s my baby 🥰

I have a particular passion for yuri manga and anime. (Or pretty much anything involving cute girls.)

Professional Work

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 different vendors. I used to tutor English and writing on the side but stopped because it was too much.

I also do freelance writing. I am currently writing reviews at The OASG and occasionally write 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. However, please be aware tha I am not currently accepting guest posts. (Collabs are okay, though!)

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 myriad 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. But I’m 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:


Rize, Cocoa, and Chino from Is The Order A Rabbit?


Aya, Alice, Karen, Shino, and Yoko from Kiniro Mosaic


Yui, Kyoko, Akari, and Chinatsu from Yuru Yuri
