[A Year in Anime] 2017 Archi-Anime Awards

2017 has come to a close! And that means another year of blogging has been completed. I will probably do a 2017 review of what the blog has been up to as well as announce some awesome stuff this week! Sorry I’ve been MIA over the holidays, work shut-down for the week and I have found myself enjoying reading and watching, and inadvertently took a small break from blogging. But, I digress. Let’s get down to what I’ve found to be the best of the year!

A few of the rules:

  • It had to have aired in the year of 2017.
  • I have finished watching these shows 100%.
  • I’ve split this up into categories, much like last year’s and again I modeled it after the Oscars and ripped Leth’s (for the most part)
  • There may or may not be runner-up’s/close-calls for every category.

Here we go!

Crunchyroll Expo 2017

(author’s note: yes I know this is like super super months behind, but I finally finished it!)

This year, Crunchyroll hosted their very first Crunchyroll Expo (CRX) the weekend of August 25, 2017.. I bought the weekend pass the day of my birthday, as it was the cutoff date for them to mail passes to attendees. That alone was one of the main reasons I ended up checking it out. I didn’t have to do the whole line-con thing just to get a badge. The only other convention I’ve had the chance to go to is Fanime both in 2016 and 2017. I got a weekend pass; but ended up attending 2 of the three days. I was just too exhausted by Saturday night, so I skipped the last day.

[OP]: Peace Sign | Sunday Salutations

Good evening guys!! Today’s Sunday OP is coming a bit late. I spent the day hanging out with my parents – they wanted to celebrate my birthday today since they’re going out of town for my actual birthday next week! 🙂

So to be honest, I don’t have much to fill you in on this week – just another work week and nothing exciting really happened. My Teaching Assistant gig ended on Wednesday, as it was the final class. I’ll see the group again in September for their model exhibition! I’m not sure I’ll be designing the poster for the exhibition this year, but this was what I designed for last years:

This weekend I finally jumped on the Boku no Hero Academia train and I’m so glad I did. I’m not quite up to speed but I really love season 2’s OP and I haven’t really found a favorite character – except Izuku Midoriya. Shoto Todoroki is probably my second favorite. I’m linking an English dubbed version and the original one in this post. I think the song captures the season pretty well and has a great tempo and beat 🙂 Continue reading “[OP]: Peace Sign | Sunday Salutations”
