Para Sa Mga Kababayan Kong Pinoy Anime Fans

Hindi ako sigurado kung ilan sa inyo dito sa komunidad ng WordPress anime bloggers at sa mga mambabasa ng aking munting blog ang mga Pilipino.  Ito ang pinaka-unang pagkakataon na ako’y nagsulat ng isang buong post sa Tagalog.  May mga nakilala na rin naman akong mga pinoy anime fans sa pamamagitan nitong blog ko.  Medyo natatawa lang ako dahil lahat sila ay hindi inaakalang Pilipino rin pala ako.  Ang akala raw nila ay Amerikana o ‘di kaya’y Haponesa ako.

Mushishi: An Inspiration to Storytellers

Rating: 😀😀😀😀:) (4.5 / 5 grins)

Mushishi (蟲師) is a manga series created by Urushibara Yuki (漆原 友紀).  The anime adaptation is a big surprise to me.  It has been repeatedly recommended to me by many of my anime buddies, but I always gave them noncommittal replies.  Then I finally decided to watch it and I wanted to kick myself ever since for waiting this long.

Streaming Anime: Is It a Viable Option?

I think we can all agree anime is pretty great. We’d like to extend our thanks to Fujinsei for featuring this post on their page, as theirs is a great resource for sharing similar interests and ideas in ways that only otaku can. Though there’s no such thing as too much anime, if you’re starting to wonder, check out their post on “10 Signs That Anime is Ruining Your Life.”
