The MECHA CATALOGUE isn’t different from any other blog or website that covers mecha anime and the hobbies or collectibles it spawned. That said, and this will sound really clichéd, the site was always meant to be my best expression of the hobby through visual media.
Refresh and Renewal is all about refocusing on three key aspects — hobbies, collections, and photographs. Hobbies and collections are self explanatory, that’s what The CATALOGUE is. Retaining that stiff 2011 definition of being “a comprehensive index with the primary purpose of tracking and organizing collectibles.”, it basically means CATALOGUE entries are not reviews but more of my overall thoughts and impressions on a figure or model kit. Reviews would still be present, definitely, but they’ll be more of featured articles.
I’m hoping to further expand my visual story telling through more photos across the site. Whether it’s an old section like The CATALOGUE, the relaunched One Shots galleries, or even quick blog posts. That also includes the new photo-oriented and responsive site layout.
