Commencing the 2018 Summer of Manga

Now that I have finished up the long-overdue series of Traveling Thoughts on Breath of the Wild, my attention can turn to the annual tradition of gorging myself on Eastern content. This year, a return to the printed form will be what’s on the menu, as the usual Summer of Anime moniker has shifted to the Summer of Manga. While the rules are roughly the same, I did add a little more to the total count from the last year I did this, so I should have a little more to strive for come tomorrow. For those who missed it, you can read these updated rules here.

The first title for the Summer will be everyone’s favorite adaptation to anime form, Pupa! Here’s to a successful season!

An Early 2018 Summer of “Anime” Announcement

Concerning my annual Summer of Anime block that takes place between the first day of June and whenever I finish it (usually late-July, early-August), I’ve kept this in the dark for some time, but I’ve been planning for what to do this year since, well, the last one ended. You could say I’m a plan-addict. (more…)

I’ve Been Nominated for the Liebster Award

Many thanks to Lethargic Rambles for nominating me for the Liebster Award, something I’ve seen floating around… barely out of my grasp… This is actually the third time Mr. Rambles has nominated me for an award of this kind, which I assume means I have at least one dedicated fan (or he enjoys PESTERING ME). I kid, but I appreciate the continued support, truly. (more…)

Before the 2018 March: Taking Suggestions!

A new tradition I started last year for the blog was the March of the Movies marathon, which turned out really well! For every day in March, I would watch a random film and review it on the blog the very same day without fail. I was able to make it all the way through last year with only a few close calls + lazy cop-out posts, so I’m feeling confident in my motivation to keep the tradition going for 2018. Of course, this is a month away, so followers won’t be seeing these reviews for some time. Pondering some new ways of spicing up the tradition, however, led me to ask for something simple, but intriguing (as if my last Summer of Anime didn’t destroy my soul): viewer requests.

Share your thoughts with me!

If you have any interest in having me review a particular film, whether anime or live-action, let me know in the comments section of this post. No guarantee I take every request thrown at me (there are some films I’d really rather not watch), but I think getting some outside perspectives could prove an interesting way to try things I wouldn’t otherwise think of trying. And this isn’t to say I expect the entire month to be requested films (I’ve learned enough), but rather a more interactive way of connecting with my audience and doing what I can to appeal to you all more. So please, request some films and make this year’s March a memorable one! Until then!
