How We Started:
RiceBall was started by three friends who love to indulge in their fandoms. Together we would found ourselves having long drawn out conversations (or arguments) about TV shows, different anime and manga, or books that we’ve read. Usually these discussions/debates would go on for hours. Many times they would go on until the next day. Not only did we have these discussions between each other, but we found that many of our friends also spent a lot of time talking to us about their fandoms too.
So we decided to create a healthy medium where fans, like us, can discuss and/or debate topics of interest relating to what we enjoy most. Together we are the voice of the fan,
We are huge anime fans. Just like American television there are so many different genres regarding anime. Every show drastically differs from the next. However, regardless of these differences, the rice ball always remains constant. Within every show, regardless of the genre you will always see a character eating a rice ball. They may seem small and insignificant, but its purpose is culturally relevant. Similar to the different genres in anime, rice balls come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flavors. As fans, this is who we are.
Our different opinions and perspectives about today’s pop culture is shared by a variety of people. We all may look different and have dissimilar views, but at the end of the day, our devoted interest to fandom binds us and ensures these art forms thrive. We are the constant! We are the Rice Ball
So as we watch, read, or play, let’s discuss. From a fan to a fan, grab a rice ball. It’s time to feed your inner nerd.
