Sunday Ani-TAY Café

Illustration for article titled Sunday Ani-TAY Café

So here I am just minding my business writing the cafe and listening to Babymetal trying to think of a topic when it hits me. What is your favorite Japanese artist? (I can’t believe I never asked this before)


Mine is obviously Babymetal, the awesome fusion of idol Japanese Pop with metal. So glorious. The musical combination and the amazing quality of frontwoman Suzuka Nakamoto are the best.

Second place goes to fhana, if you haven’t heard their new single Wonder Stella yet, you will because I will be mentioning it sometime in the future.

Storytime With Storm

This section will include the musings of me, Protonstorm, about life and the universe and will be on cafes on the occasion. Sometimes there will be music.



Answer of the Week

This section will show up every once and a while where I will answer someone else’s question about something in the most absurd way possible. Feel free to ask the question below (LABEL it ‘question of the week’) or send it to me over skype (user ID is Protonstorm). If I decide to do this section one week and there aren’t any questions (likely), I will ask someone for one or make one up, such as below:

(imaginary) Dexomega: Hello Protonstorm, I have been coerced convinced that I need to ask you a question, so how about this: why is it that despite all of you people being obviously inferior to me, I have to deal with you guys making a mess of things whenever I’m gone?


Answer: Dex, I want to start by saying that you are never gone, you are always in all of our hearts. That, plus the fact that we recently discovered how to use a mirror and chanting to summon you last week. Have you ever heard about those fathers who have kids that cause trouble to get their attention? In case you haven’t noticed, that’s basically AniTAY. I would make some lame ‘notice us senpai’ joke but I’m not going to because I already have by saying that I’m not going to. So how do you deal with us? The easiest way would probably be to install shock collars on all AniTAY authors and pay people to monitor us and deliver punishment when necessary. Another option would be to revoke all of our authorships and just write everything yourself.

A Week of Ani-TAY

I’ve added a section here for a random drop from weeks past, just in case you want to randomly look at older articles for fun.


Kevin and I have decided to move the roundup of weekly articles to a separate place, check out the Ani-TAY Drop for this week (not updated yet).

What Is Ani-TAY?

For those of you visiting for the first time (or not, I don’t know) and wondering just what exactly you’re looking at right now, here’s a document explaining our blog and wonderful community:


Business Stuff

Want in on the Ani-TAY action? All you need to do is follow this tutorial and tag your article with Ani-TAY in addition to the other tags you see fit. Also remember that the Café has a selection of image assets for your Ani-TAY writing needs and spreadsheets for coordinating with your fellow Ani-TAY writers.


Looking to get involved in some collaboration projects? We currently have some openings for future iterations of Project Hydra, so if you’re interested mark which shows you haven’t seen here and then sign up in blank spots here.


Among other things, the Ani-TAY Podcast may just randomly pull from authors to participate in the After-Hours segments.
