A post called “D”

Helly everyone! When you come across the title for this post I can almost imagine the expressions on most of your faces. A post called “D”, what the heck is he talking about? Well….let me explain things, and hopefully it will become clear. I have been blogging for over a year now, and I almost can’t believe it’s been that long. It has been an incredible journey, that had it’s ups and downs, but there is one thing that has made it all worth it. And that is meeting a lot of cool people along the way. Some of them have become very good friends, even though we might never meet in real life. When I first started my blog I was incredibly shy, and also afraid to make a comment on someone else’s blog. (Why would someone be interested in anything that I have to say, right?). Well, I am glad I got over that initial fear, and started doing that, because that is the best thing about blogging: sharing thoughts with other people and becoming part of this community.


And that brings me to the reason for this post: it is the 8th of October (Well, at least it is right now over here in Holland), and that means it is someone’s birthday today! Now, I know they hate me for writing this post (lolπŸ˜‚), but they are also worth it, so that is why I am doing it anyway. The person who’s birthday it is today should be familiair to most of you that write about anime. And that is “D” fromΒ Dtalksanime. ( So, that explains the title for this post: DUH ).And they are just simply put awesome! Not only are their reviews incredibly fun to read, but they are also very kind and always have a nice reply ready for anything you comment on. Not only that, but they also offer cool comments on posts that you write yourself, and it always amazes me that people take time from their busy lives to comment on anything that you write in the first place.


So why this post? Well “D” has not only become a very good friend, but as some of you have read on their blog they have been going through a rough patch the past few weeks and are currently on hiatus. Life can sometimes be really tough, and make us feel like crap. So I thought it would be a nice idea to write this post, and to let the comment section serve as a happy birthday wishlist for them. In other words: use the comments section below to wish them a happy birthday, and let them know how much we miss their posts. And if you are not yet following their terrific blog, use the link above to subscribe to them! Let me kick this off with saying : “D, my friend, have a terrific day! I know you usually don’t like things like this, but I do hope that this has put a smile on your face. And if not, you can always sent Mei from Another to my house to scare the living daylights out of me! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Happy Birthday! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ ”

  1. Wow, what a nice idea! This is why you’re everyone’s BFF πŸ˜€

    First off, congratulations on your 1 year (whenever it was… you said “over a year” :P) We’ve said this to one another so many times, but it bears repeating: I really enjoy being able to blog with you, sharing thoughts on anime and more. I’m really thankful you got over your hesitation to reach out to others as I would have regretted never knowing you.

    Second, Happy birthday, D!! I know life has been tough lately, but we are all cheering for you. Hope everything turns around for you soon and we can hear from you on a more regular basis again.

    1. Thanks for the very kind words: truly appreciate it πŸ˜€ And yeah I am glad I did that too. I think the first comment I ever gave was over on Karandi’s blog, but I can’t remember for sure as it’s been quite a while ago (and my mind is getting old πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚).
      As for D: yeah I really hope things will get better for them soon. I really miss their posts πŸ˜€

  2. It’s hard to picture you as a shy blogger, given that you are one of the folks who leaves the most comments on my site. Thanks for all the feedback, it’s much appreciated.

    Happy birthday D! I too follow his blog and hope he will return from hiatus whenever life allows.

    1. You are welcome πŸ˜€Haha…well trust me, I can certainly be a shy person. But I definitely got over that part when it comes to blogging. I always think it is the most fun part of blogging, and I just love reading posts from other people. That, and I certainly can;t imagine a life without blogging anymore either πŸ˜€

  3. I love this post. It’s so sweet.

    D, let this one slide, please! You’re both great people, after all!
    Cheers for D for getting raistlin out of his shell and for getting accepted into grad school!
    Cheers for raistlin with this thoughtful post!

  4. I haven’t even read the post yet but had to come and shout a big apology. I’m so so so so sorry I couldn’t come to your blog until now. I knew you were doing something on my birthday but I had to move for grad school on the same day and let me tell you, this whole week’s been a hot mess.

    Accommodation didn’t work out, I had to change, I couldn’t use my laptop, my browser+bookmarks was wiped, internet was weird, I realized how I hate sharing rooms with people, AND BASICALLY I’M A MESS.

    I just got home and logged in asap to wordpress for this.

    But these are all really just excuses and I can’t say how sorry I am.

    1. Wow.

      You know when people cry and smile so wide to hurt at the same time? That’s me rn. Life has been not the best lately and I know you joked I’l send Mei to you but honestly? This is the sweetest thing you could have done for me.

      Thank you so much. Really, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. This has simultaneously been my best and worst birthday yet, and yours certainly belongs to the best.
