Best Posts Round-Up of the 5th Fujinsei Blog Carnival

Hello, folks!  Sorry for the delay, and thank you very much for your patience.  Without further ado, I hereby declare the 5th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED!  As always, my big thanks to all those who participated.  This carnival is nothing without you.

45 entries were submitted in this blog carnival.  Yay!  Awesome, right?  And yes, I read all of them.  What’s more exciting is that a lot of them were from bloggers who participated in this blog carnival for the first time.  To the newbies, I hope you enjoyed connecting with our fellow bloggers.  Please participate again at the next one.  To the carnival “veterans”, I send my love to you for always supporting these events.  Thank you very much!


Arria’s Best Posts Round-Up of the 5th Fujinsei Blog Carnival:
(arranged alphabetically)

“Emotional Connections in Mecha Anime” by Karandi (100 Word Anime) – discusses how many series in the mecha genre lack emotional connections to the viewers and recommends great anime that successfully combine the robotic and human elements

“Following Hayao Miyazaki’s Footsteps in Tomonoura, Japan” by A.Foo (Bites of Oishii) – features photos of the lovely village of Tomonoura, Japan, the inspiration of critically-acclaimed Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki’s film, Ponyo

“Horror Anime: Is there really such a thing?” by Leap250 – interesting post discussing how series tagged as horror do not necessarily evoke horror to the viewers

“Old vs New Battle Shonen: How this demographic/genre has/hasn’t changed” by Scott (Mechanical Anime Reviews) – insightful summary of how the series in the shounen genre developed throughout the years

“Piracy – Time Bandits” by Grant the Thief (Blade Licking Thieves) – tackles a controversial topic many anime fans are trying to ignore: piracy; a reminder that using ripped legal streams is no help to the industry; MUST-READ!!!

“The Misuse of Weeaboo” by LitaKino (Lita Kino Anime Corner) – discusses how the term “weeaboo” is misused in the fandom and why a lot of otaku don’t want to  be called “weeaboo”

“The Portrayal of Women and Men In Anime and Manga” by Katrina Sade (Grimm Girl) – the BEST post in this carnival, MUST-READ!!!; explains feminism, rape culture in society, among other things; my favourite part is about female empowerment in anime and manga, contrary to popular belief

“The Seven Deadly Sins of One Piece” by Matthew (Matt-in-the-Hat) – a creative post listing ONE PIECE characters who represent the 7 cardinal sins; one of my favourite posts I’ve read in this carnival

“Which Manga Desk Suits Your Creative Genius?” by Ma. Venus Gamboa (Japanime Talks) – a very fun post showcasing photos of various desks of famous manga artists including Oda-sensei (ONE PIECE) and Kishimoto-sensei (Naruto)

“Why Fan OTP Ships Upset Me” by Kausus (Otaku Gamer Zone) – a short but firm post blasting “One True Pairing” ships among the fandom

Well done to the 10 bloggers who wrote the great posts I listed above.  So much intriguing and interesting content.  Thank you very much for sharing your awesome posts in this carnival.  Please keep on writing them, and if possible submit them again to the next carnival.  All of you who submitted your posts never fail to inspire me to write better and become a better blogger.  Thank you!

If you missed this carnival, I’ll be holding the 6th one this coming Monday (October 3).  Please stay tuned.  I’m looking forward to reading more amazing posts.  Thank you very much.  I’ll see you on Monday at the 6th Fujinsei Blog Carnival.  Take care.  Cheers!

    1. No problem. I really liked your post. It’s very simple, but nonetheless very interesting. It appeals to manga fans like myself. Thanks for sharing it with us on the carnival. I hope you join us again for the next one. Cheers!


  1. This was my second round of the carnival, most definitely looking forward to Monday. Just like last time I ended up finding more bloggers that I liked and I am super-flattered to have made the final list. I already gushed on Twitter a bunch already but I’ll say it again – you are a making a big difference in the community with all of the work you are doing.

  2. Thanks again for hosting this event. Congrats everyone.
    Grimm Girls post was definitely awesome. I enjoyed Karandi as well. Bites of Oishii’s Ponyo inspired fic was fun. As well as Scott’s Shonen powered post.

    As for the rest, I’m going to check out now.

      1. I am looking forward to it. I am glad to participate with you and everyone else. I am not sure what will I do on the week. I am debating on sharing an old post or making a new. If I do a new one, it might be a discussion post or a spotlight tribute to a blogger.
