Whether you came here from my social medias or you happened to stumble upon this site, I would like to share my reasoning for making this site and what kind of content you will expect to find. This will help you know if this is a blog worth your time.
First, I want to explain the name: WeebMETA.
The first part, Weeb, may be something most of you have heard of. For those who don’t know, weeb is a term used to describe a non-Japanese person who is obsessed with the Japanese culture. Am I obsessed with Japanese culture? Not really, but I do enjoy and indulge in a lot of Japanese related things. For one, I love anime. I’ve consumed so much anime, manga, and light novels since my friend introduced the medium to me back in 2006. Because of my love for anime, I started like other things from Japan like the food and music. I didn’t get to the point of being interested in the culture and language, but it is still something I respect after indulging in so much anime.
The second part of the name is META. Meta in competitive video games refer to a strategy or weapon to use that is the most optimal. In Overwatch, a certain set of heroes may be the most ideal to run because it’s almost impossible to counter. In shooter games like CS:GO and Call of Duty, certain guns may be considered meta because they are simply reliable. The meta can change on the spot when patches are released to the game. A meta gun can be nerfed or a non-meta hero can be buffed which can change the most optimal strategy.
Based on the name alone, you can safely assume that the contents in this site will be mostly anime and esports related. I wanted a place to share my opinions on topics that I really care about.
Now some of you may be wondering why I’m doing a blog instead of YouTube videos. For those who don’t know me, I run YouTube channels that focus on anime and gaming topics. The reason why I want to do a blog instead is that I simply don’t have time to make videos. I do not have time to write a script, record the video and edit it. Blogging would be easier for me to get my content out there. Also, I take a 40 minute train ride to work and 40 minutes back so it’s easier to just sit on the train and write.
So that is basically what this blog will be about! I hope that those who are reading this stick around and enjoy my content! But that is it for me. I will see you all next time!
