Kurumi Shim (or simply Kurumi) is a Filipino anime enthusiast. She is also fond of manga, cosplay and everything associated with Japanese popular culture. She is an RPG gamer and in fact, a big fan of Bandai Namco’s Tales series.

She started to become an avid fan of anime at the age of 4. The first anime series she watched was Ninja Senshi Tobikage which was broadcast with the English dub on Philippine television in 1996. Soonafter, she would always love to watch anime series on local TV network such as Yuyu Hakusho, Recca no Honou and Dragon Ball Z which were popular series during her childhood years.

As worldwide web began to dominate, she became more active in the world of anime as she spent most of the time watching a lot of series online and joined different anime-related sites actively such as Crunchyroll, an English-based site that mainly streams anime, where she gained a lot of friends internationally who are into anime and Japanese popular culture. In fact, she garnered 2nd place in the Crunchyroll’s Otaku Room Contest in 2008 which she believes to be her first achievement as an anime enthusiast.


The blog kurumishim.wordpress.com was officially launched on July 20, 2012. Previously posting on Blogspot with the domain shiningkurumi.blogspot.com which started in April 2010, she firstly decided to import her posts to Tumblr. However, due to a number of reasons, she ended up with WordPress officially. Kurumi loves to review anime series of every genre and talks about everything that revolves around the anime universe.
