Hey guys! Welcome back to this week’s Take Two! In case you’re new around here, this post essentially recaps last week’s posts among other gems found over the week onto one page! But since I was MIA most of May, I’ll have to recap most of my month!

I seriously need to get more content out. LOL I’ve been sucked into the world of gaming the last few weeks! But here’s my round-up of posts:

I’m going to do something a bit different here. I won’t just link anime related posts. I’m opening this up to gaming, architecture, art, anything I’ve found worthwhile on the internet! (I’ve crossed our architecture and art as I’m creating a new series on this subject matter since they’re not anime-related)

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.

Our April tour looked at the theme of “Strength”The prompt is as follows:

“Your greatest weakness can become your greatest strength.”

In anime, characters struggle with inner demons or physical weaknesses that make them feel insecure and prevent them from achieving goals. Yet when these characters overcome their adversity, they can finally be able to express who they are or in other words, “Free to be Me.”

For this tour, we will be exploring anime characters that have overcome adversity due to a personal insecurity or physical weakness. It is these type of characters that many anime fans may identify as role models because fans are able to feel empathetic towards these characters’ struggles and insecurities.

Here’s a list of this month’s posts:

NENDOROID NEWS:

This section needs a bit of a facelift, but I’ll get around to it at some point. But so far! These are the releases for this week:

Going to Skip this section for this Post. There are just WAYY too many to be posting for the past month – and I’m contemplating if I want to break this one out into it’s own thing as well!

You can pre-order them either on goodsmile or otakumode.

These just released the last week, so I think there’s about a month left for pre-orders before they close! So if they are of any interest to you I suggest you get them while you can! 😀

Hey guys! Welcome back to this week’s Take Two! I’ll be re-capping and sharing some new stuff! So, let’s get to it!

I…didn’t write much last week. I’m gonna blame that on Persona 5….lol…but last week’s posts included:

  • OP: No Need For Promises | Check-in Time!: I finished up Vision of Escaflowne a few days ago. So I remember posting this OP because I knew I would be finishing up the series! Expect some sort of review/collab on it some time soon.
  • [OWLS Blog Tour]: Fetishization of the “Rose Bride” and Asian Women: This took majority of my energy for blogging. It was a heavy topic I wanted to discuss but it was well worth it! I examine Asian stereotypes and the parallel of mail order brides in my analysis of Anthy in Revolutionary Girl Utena.
  • Top 10 Chocolate Haired Men : I countdown my favorite bishies that are of the chocolaty brown spectrum of the colors.
  • Townsperson B: Hitoka Yachi: Last week’s WCW was a bit on the more light hearted side, since my analysis of Anthy was heavy in content a few days earlier. I was going to do another character analysis of Hitoka, but realized that her character is someone we’ve all been at one point in our lives. So I list out 5 life lessons presented in the introduction of Hitoka’s character in Haikyuu!!

I’m going to do something a bit different here. I won’t just link anime related posts. I’m opening this up to gaming, architecture, art, anything I’ve found worthwhile on the internet!

  • Spring 2017 Anime First Impressions – Fresh Hot Fantasy Series for $5: Scott’s First Impressions are pretty much like my own, since we’re both watching a few of the same series.
  • Manga Challenge 2017: Andrealinia post that they were going to start up the Manga Challenge. I’ve seen the concept on MAL, and used to try to complete the Anime Challenge as a personal challenge, but they changed up the concept with Bingo Cards this year. Take a look!
  • [Full Game Review] English Otome- Cinderella Phenomenon: The Otome Queen, Naja, is back with a full review on this game.  She’s always writing awesome reviews so don’t forget to check her out! She’s already dragged me into Otome Hell and I love her for it. LOL. At some point, I’ll be reviewing games on here too! But Naja is a senpai when it comes to otome and reviews!
  • Ep 13 – Love’s Sorrow: The award for making me cry this week goes to Weekend Otaku and the re-watch of Your Lie in April. I absolutely love this anime-there really are no words to describe how much this anime really hits a chord with me. I’m picking this particular episode because it’s a pivotal point in Kousei Arima’s growth as a musician.
