Edit: Once again, I want to thank everyone for your continued support for this blog!! We will be advancing to Round 3 which is a group stage meaning this blog will be against 3 others and the top 2 will advance to Round 4. Voting is scheduled to begin later this month or in June depending upon when the tournament starts up again. As always, I hope to receive your support again in the next round. Also, a round of applause to Rabbitpoets for their excellent sportsmanship and benevolence in this match of the tournament. Please continue to support their magnificent blog and all your other favorite anime blogs as well. Thank you.
Whether this is your first visit, you’re here on a regular basis, or you’re somewhere in-between, I wish to welcome you to my anime blog! The second round of the Aniblog Tournament is already underway and the match I’m participating is now open for voting. For those interested in the tournament and want to learn more or if you’re curious about where to vote, the Aniblog Tourney is home to all the polls and resources for whatever your needs are for this anime blog tournament.
I can imagine those who’ve been active in the Aniblog Tourney since it began roughly 73 matches (or 136 blogs) ago are already feeling fatigued or weary of exploring or rediscovering yet another blog. If that’s the case, then please enjoy my blog at your own pace. I realize not everyone has the time or energy to slug through another round of quickly evaluating and subsequently judging 8 blogs, but I do hope your experience here is enjoyable or in some way positive. I also want to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog regardless of whether I win your vote or not.
For anyone who is up for a challenge or is excited to explore my blog, then here are a few recommendations:
Obviously the first and foremost recommendation would be to check out the categories to the right. The anime listed there are the ones that I posted episodically and ones being followed this Spring are Jormungand and Sakamichi no Apollon. Don’t fret if your favorite anime isn’t one of the few listed, Weekly Anime posts cover a greater range of anime though they have shorter but perhaps more manageable lengths. If you can remember the season of an anime you liked or would like to read about, sorting by season in the category sidebar is optimal though the search bar above it and the tag cloud below it are also useful.
If you’re curious about specific posts that I would recommend, then here are a few recent posts that I believe highlight my style, content, focus, and ability as an anime blogger:
Sakamichi no Apollon 4 – Realism as the most important characteristic of setting
Jormungand 1 – Balancing the serious themes with lightheartedness
Week 4 Anime Review – Special attention to Mouretsu Pirates, Space Brothers, Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, and Lupin III: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna
Jormungand 3 – Koko’s compassionate and caring personality
Sakamich no Apollon 2 – How fear affects Kaoru
Week 3 Anime Review – Special attention to Tsuritama, Zetman, Lupin III (again), and a few early season complaints
For those of you who are more fans of manga, I do follow Needless very dearly and write posts on it every time a new chapter is published. Though I try to refrain from including too many spoilers in these posts, the best I can do is keep them indirect at a minimum and put warnings on those posts that incorporated a spoiler or two. These are among my favorites posts to write because I simply enjoy the manga so much, so hopefully a bit of the manga fan in me is revealed to you in those posts. If you’re interested in my manga posts, then check them out though I do warn you to maybe wait if you are planning on reading the manga or don’t want to be spoiled about the most current arc.
And if you’ve made it this far, then I want to take another moment to thank you for spending your time on my blog, reading my posts, and judging me for the Aniblog Tourney. Even if you don’t vote for this blog, I am glad you took the time to evaluate my blog and consider me for the honor of receiving your vote. I truly appreciate it, so thank you, and I hope you make some return visits to this blog or any others in the tournament.
