About Merlyn De Souza

Merlyn De Souza is a freelance writer and anime enthusiast with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature. When not writing, she can be found exploring various realms of entertainment including, but not limited to, K-dramas, novels, webtoons, 2000's chick flicks, and the occasional manhwa. She also enjoys all things creative like sewing and makeup and has a penchant for sharing boundless insights about her beloved interests.

Author Details

Merlyn De Souza is a writer for Screen Rant based in the tiny coastal state of Goa, India. When she isn't watching anime or writing, Merlyn likes to watch mushy Korean dramas and annoy her five cats or share a million niche memes on Instagram.

Industry Focus

Merlyn particularly enjoys writing about One Piece, which quite literally took over her life a few years ago when she first committed to watching it. She also likes to write the occasional Jujutsu Kaisen feature, having picked it up after watching Season 1 when it first aired, dying to know what happened next.

Favorite Media

Lately, Merlyn's been especially obsessed with anime like SpyxFamily and webtoons like The Remarried Empress, Eleceed, and Operation True Love. She's especially fond of series like Kamisama Kiss, Yuri on Ice, and Ouran High School Host Club which share a special place in her heart with old Barbie movies and a couple of K-dramas.
