The Infinite Zenith

Where insights on anime, games, academia and life dare to converge

About Infinite Zenith

Infinite Zenith evokes in the mind’s eye a vision of the wonders of what lies in the skies directly above us. Following an aspiring bioinformatian and his reflections on worthy anime and video games, it is only natural that the integration of moé accompany these thoughts for the sake of aesthetics.

So reads the official description for my website. The Infinite Zenith was originally created in 2007 so I could host private score servers for Novel Games. However, as my anime and gaming interests diversified, I found that the website would be an excellent tool for providing insightful discussion as to why each unique work was worthwhile. Thus began the modern incarnation of my website. From 2008 onwards, I began writing reviews and experimenting with the website’s layout, eventually settling on the modern design. However, the website was inflexible and focussed on a fixed amount of material. With other materials out there warrenting discussion, I decided the time was right to start a blog, resulting in the one seen here today.

The Infinite Zenith

A quick Google Search reveals that the Infinite Zenith is a curious individual whose interest is diverse. The origins of this name stem from two vessels in the Celebrity Fleet: The Infinity and The Zenith, the former of which was the vessel I boarded many years ago on a journey to the pristine pine forests and tranquil inlets of Alaska’s inside passage. In the context of my website, the Infinite Zenith refers to the Zenith (an astronomical term denoting the point located at a 90 degree angle to the horizon, straight up) that has infinite distance, representing progress and effort towards a goal. For those who are less interested in the origins of the title, it could be said that it was chosen simply because it sounds cool.

This blog was created in October 2011 with the intent of supplementing and complementing my website, as well as present anime news to interested readers. Most anime-related news is not particularly accessible to English speakers, so I aim to remove these constraints and ensure that information is shared by everyone. I also will delve into discussions about anime and games for conversational purposes: as with my website, the articles exist to either explain my justifications for recommending something or else simply present my opinions on a particular matter. The entire point of this blog is the same as that of my website: to present my various thoughts on anime and games with the intent of making it clear as to why something is worthwhile, whether it be a new anime series or the latest strategies in a game.

Here comes the challenge: summarise myself in a few lines. The challenge being that if I did, disgruntled readers would probably try to hunt me down. However, there is such a thing as ambiguity. For instance, I can safely say that I hold an undergraduate degree bioinformatics and my research interests are in the application and designs of virtual medicine. In addition (since there’s really no hiding from it), I’m an undergraduate researcher for the LINDSAY Virtual Human project. My anime interests stem back from my high school days when my friends introduced me to anime, and my gaming interests have pretty much been around since I first played Sim City 2000 on a Windows 95 machine. In between the chaos that defines being a student, I watch anime, game and write to relax. Those wishing to raise queries, present criticisms and offer suggestions without the moderation queue can do so at my Facebook Page.

Presently, I have retired postings at the Infinite Zenith website and maintain this WordPress blog exclusively. Aside from being better optimised for search engines, support for mobile editing has made it very simple to go through and fix changes on the fly, or even draft entire posts from an iPad. I will, of course, continue to run the Webs.com site, although all updates will be found here.
