Posted by avvesione in 2014 Summer, Anime on July 27, 2014
Last week: why the third episode of Space Dandy Season 2 might be my favorite of the year, an analysis on the diversity of rural settings and how the specifics of this are impacting Barakamon, some egregious contradictions with the mecha in Aldnoah.Zero, and some serious questions about the structure and purpose of Night Raid in Akame ga Kill!
12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 3 – The Aniblog Tourney
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Anime, Me + Other Non-Anime Posts on December 23, 2012
As I’ve made an emphasis about the anime community throughout these Twelve Days posts, I figure it’s about time for one of the greatest, most memorable and wholly entertaining events of the year: The Second Anime Blog Tournament or Aniblog Tourney. With the first one occurring in 2010, before I discovered and read anime blogs, this was the first such event where a majority of the aniblogger community gathered together to share and explore bits and pieces of the community that may have gone unnoticed previously. Seizing the opportunity, this blog was accepted into the tournament. However, the act of putting my blog in the Aniblog Tourney is not the reason for it making the Twelve Days list. Rather, it was the social aspects of the Aniblog Tourney which were the most influential and enduring.
12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 11 – Joining the Anime Community on Twitter
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Me + Other Non-Anime Posts on December 15, 2012
Although I officially joined Twitter on Christmas Day last year, it was 2012 when I discovered the bustling, chatty and sociable anime community there and began to frequent the service on a regular basis. In my entire first year of blogging, I failed to capitalize on the dynamic resource that was Twitter which supports a lively community of numerous anime- and manga-fans. Most other anime bloggers have accounts and use the media platform as a means to communicate with each other. So throughout 2012, I began to use the service to connect with other anime- and manga-fans which had an unfathomable affect and influence on how I watch and appreciate anime.
Spring 2012 – Season Review
Posted by avvesione in 2012 Spring, Anime, Season Reviews on July 18, 2012
With the conclusion of the Spring anime season comes a period of evaluation and judgment based on everything that was watched. In the end, a final mark is given that encompasses our thoughts and feelings on the series and is the assessment we return to when looking back at the series. Though this closure for an anime series may seem shallow compared to the experience we had over the past twelve or so weeks, it does feel like a way to properly finish a series before we fully immerse ourselves in the Summer anime season. And with that, here is the final review for the Spring 2012 anime season.
Spring 2012 – Mid-Season Review
Posted by avvesione in 2012 Spring, Anime, Season Reviews on May 31, 2012
With the halfway point of the Spring anime season already elapsed and the final month of the season swiftly approaching, it’s time to take a moment and provide evaluations and grades for all the anime airing currently. Allowing every anime to provide half or a quarter of their story allows for the best judgment of each series since every show has had their opportunities to develop their characters, establish their stories, and separate themselves from each other. Some have scored well and excelled every week while others are continuing to struggle or simply lack the content or energy to compete with the rest. It’s time to judge how the anime of this this season have fared in this Spring 2012 Mid-Season Review.
