Ok, I do not understand what is going on, but I somehow was nominated for another award by Daiyamanga! This is really quite astounding, I am so surprised and amazed and so many other things! I really don’t know what to say, thank you so much! I am so glad that there are people who genuinely like what I have to say and even though a lot of it seems like senseless babbling… Actually I should probably leave the rest for the actual post, which I will get to, right after I thank Daiyamanga one more time, her blog is about her large collection of manga in which she reviews them as a whole, instead of individual volumes. So, definetly check her out, especially if your a big fan of manga! I would also like to note that thanks to her, I’ve found something that I will be talking about very shortly…
- Write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips.
- Nominate some of your fellow bloggers.
- Comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.
Why I Started Blogging
I mean, I do believe I’ve explained this a few times in my blog, but I do not mind telling it all again. This time, however, I will go a little more back to explain why this ideal came to be. So, my ideal for this blog is to bring the anime community closer together or to more accurately put it, I want to build my own little community where we don’t nonsensely hate on specific anime, at best critique them after we actually watched them. The idea that people actually judge certain anime off of how they look or even just simply from the hype of it, that they hear a lot of people say “Wow! Have you seen ________? It is awesome and very popular” and then they say “Nah, overhyped trash anime…” It actually annoys me. Like, people have their opinions, but do not judge an anime by how they look. For example, I never liked how One Piece looks. I still never judged One Piece and I still don’t feel comfortable judging it from my own experience, because I haven’t finished it nor is the series (ever) finishing. I don’t really remember what episode I am in ( somewhere around the 210s). Dont worry, I plan to go back. Anyways, back to the point. I actually met someone in another area, in where I live… She quickly judged me based off of my backpack. It was a backpack of a specific anime in which, I don’t find it necessary to specify. But, she told me something along the lines of “Let me know when you watch relevant anime”. I could instantly tell she didn’t watch Attack On Titan, because of the immature vibe she let out. I could go more into detail but that’s besides the point, also I would feel dirty disrespecting that person. Moving on, I actually watched a video, I don’t remember who it was or what specific video it was. I just found that it was very inspiring. I remember the person saying…
“Haters will always exist for any content that anyone brings out. However, I find it really sad that there’s so many of these “haters” in the anime community or even the manga community. So many of us anime fans were bullied as kids, we were bullied and we were just in a dark place in general. We turned to Anime to take us away from the real world. Anime is supposed to be something we all share, so that we know we don’t have to face the harshness of reality, not alone. So, it saddens me whenever I hear that an anime fan is bullied by another anime fan, simply because they don’t share the same opinions. Anime is supposed to bring us all together, not tear us apart.”
I’m sad myself to not remember who said this, but uh yeah. Not long after hearing about this and realizing that what this person said is true, I made this blog! So there you have it! I know this is really long and dull. It is the truth though, I just want every anime fan to, while still having their own opinions, enjoy anime just as much as the next anime fan. Because that’s what we all do, we enjoy anime. Thank you so much!
- Only talk about what you want to talk about and have fun!
- Keep it clean and try to keep it professional, although it’s fine to act silly. We’re all anime fans, means we’re all weird! xD
- Make sure your fonts and posts are readable, I believe I made a mistake like that myself. Someone told me about it and I fixed it right away.
- Just be friendly! 🙂
That’s the only nomination I can really think of, because I can’t think of any newer blogs, I am sure there are some lovely ones though. However, this is one I feel has a lot of charm to it and I feel they have a lot of potential, not to mention that what this couple are doing is just beautiful. I wish them the best! :^)
