Who am I?

Ladies, gentlemen and others, welcome to Opal Kaharis. My name is Nick and I’ll be your tour guide through whatever this mess is. During the pandemic I decided to bring my hobby of writing to the next step by actively uploading blogposts every week. I do this alongside being an English teacher and a student on the side. I talk about many things here, so I’m sure there’s something for everyone.

So what can you find here? Well, I talk about different things. I’ve talked about mental health. My autism is a big thing in my life that I talk about regularly. Sometimes just to get things off of my chest, and sometimes to give insight in what it’s like to have anxiety and other health issues. I also just talk about random things at times. But I focus on two things. I talk about anime and manga a lot. It’s one of my favorite things to do. But I think many of you are here for my stories. I’ve been writing stories since I was just a child and I post many of them here.

So that’s me and my story. I try to post regularly on here and so far I’ve been reasonably successful. At the bottom of this page you’ll also find some (outdated) pictures of primarily my cat (Nami) and my previous cat (Kokkino, the red one). I’m a big cat person. With all of that out of the way my schedule is down below, check it out to see what is uploaded when. Thanks for reading!


Mondays: On Mondays I like to talk about anime, manga or other media. This can be a review of a series or a manga volume, a quick review in which I review several recently finished shows at once or more of a deep dive into a particular topic or show.

Wednesdays: On Wednesdays I’ll talk about a One Piece Volume. I’ll be covering one volume a week and giving my thoughts on it. I keep these mostly spoiler free (as in, not spoiling things that happen much later) but there will be some spoilers here and there. Most of those will be marked, so feel free to check them out.

Fridays: On Fridays I will post the latest chapter of my weekly story: The Hesitant Hero. In this story we follow Cobal, the third prince of the Blueyerd Kingdom who is accompanying the hero summoned from another world, Lady Mana. Mana deals with a lot of anxiety and doesn’t see herself fit for the role of hero, but they’ve been thrown in this situation regardless. Updates are every week, with a break now and then.

First of the Month: I’ve been working on a story called ‘The Necromancer’s Daughter’ for a very long time. It follows a young woman named Liari who is trying to find her place in the world as well as work out some of the secrets that her father and former teacher left behind before he died. These chapters are quite a bit longer than those of my other story and there is much more worldbuilding I do for this story, hence the slower release.

And anything else that gets posted is a bonus. I talk about life, mental health and interesting topics regularly, so check those out under the off-topic label.
