Happy Tuesday Ya’ll! I’ll be changing up this format just a tad bit! Evolution is always awesome isn’t it? Next week I’ll probably start integrating more graphics into this segment! But for now…
Let’s re-cap shall we?
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
- The Other Self – KnB: With the movie comine in 2 weeks, I wanted to start using KnB songs as a countdown!
- Broken Bird: Chikara Doumeki: My Yaoi/BL crush was featured last week. I’m just completely obsessed with Twittering Birds Never Fly. I may make my way back to talk about this series at some point.
- Role Model: Haruhi Fujioka: I brought back WCW and decided to use a classic female that I wish was around for me when I was growing up. I mean I had Sailor Moon but Haruhi was somehow more of a rolemodel I think.
- [Nendoroid Nonsense]: Tsukki Pays a Visit: I had Tsukki announce a new Nendoroid Nonsense manga was in the works! I’m still in the middle of storyboarding.
A FEW OTHER HOUSEKEEPING ITEMS:
- “This Week in Anime” – was supposed to be my weekly episodic watch of shows; but I’ve fallen pretty behind on series’ as of late. I want to continue this, but let’s be real it’s hard to keep it up week to week! So I may or may not continue this – or this may also evolve into something else.
- I have a few reviews coming, an “unboxing” of something really special and an Anime Film Review, SAO: Ordinal Scale and an older one, that I recently watched, so keep an eye out for those!
- I have a few awards to get thru, so hopefully I can conquer those this week!
LAST WEEK’S INTERESTING READS:
- I Kinda Like That Salty Middle Blocker: 11 Reasons I ❤ Tsukishima Kei!: Naja is kicking off her March Megane Madness with our favorite middle blocker from Haikyuu!!!
- Impressions – Uncover the Truth, Liar!: I’ve personally finished this game as well, and Cat does a quick write-up on it and dubbed it the Ace Attorney of otome games. LOL, I haven’t played it but the way I describe it to friends they said the exact same thing!
- “Sanctuary” Blog Tour Schedule (Mar 2017): Our March Tour Schedule is up! Please have a look!
- Grex’s Ouran High School Host Club Review: Over at ANI-Tay, another website I follow for anime related topics one of their contributors talk about Ouran. It’s an interesting read!

- A Workable Definition of Anime: Another feature from ANI-Tay that is worth a look!
OWLS FEBRUARY BLOG TOUR RECAP:
As you know I’ve joined up with the OWLS recently. Here’s a little bit about what we do and a re-cap of our February blog tour! Please check out our Facebook here, our twitter page here, as well as our very own wordpress for tour updates!
We are a group of otaku bloggers who promotes acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and disability. We emphasize the importance of respect, kindness, and tolerance to every human being.
In February, we looked at Yuri!! on Ice and our interpretation of the prompt “flight”:
Topic: An individual takes flight when there is a goal, a dream, or an ambition that he or she wants to achieve. However, for this blog post, we are going to look at “flight” in different lenses: the underdog’s dream, the possibilities that Yuri on Ice allows viewers to think about, and also the dangers of greed and ignorance that can influence one’s dream.
