Origin of the Name

I’m sure many of you are probably wondering exactly what this blog is about, what that crazy name means, and why the Saralya it’s all shady and gloomy. Well, whether you are or not, here’s why!

(A manga, for the uninitiated, is a Japanese-style right-to-left graphic novel typically serialised weekly by the chapter first and then in bound collections of about two months’ worth of chapters.)

Well, in any event, I’ll post stuff here when I’ve got it. Stay tuned.

I had an exceptionally strange dream about being in a “real” Pokémon battle last night that was somehow both intense and silly at the same time. And believe it or not, even a little disturbing. I’m beginning to think there’s a distinct possibility Pokémon is doing strange things to my mind. XD
