Hello, my dear folks! To my American friends, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Oh my goodness, folks. Just a few more days and it’s going to be December. Very busy time for many of us. And before we know it, 2016 will be over. Gasp!
Okay, okay. Let’s return to what’s important today. So without further ado, I hereby declare the 7th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! This time, there were a total of 38 “approved” entries. Not bad. As always, my big thanks to all those wonderful people who participated. There were a few hiccups here and there but overall it was another fun blogging experience. THANK YOU!!!
It’s so hard choosing the posts to include in this round-up. This carnival received a lot of well-written posts. However, my main criteria for my best posts round-ups is how much a post engages me. I tend to gravitate towards well-written posts, but I also choose posts that make me laugh, cry and think. So here are the best posts I chose this carnival:
Arria’s Best Posts Round-Up of the 7th Fujinsei Blog Carnival:
“Anime and Answering Our Call – Choosing Truth or Myth” by Lady_TeresaChristina (Otaku in My Veins) – an impressive post analyzing how many anime still use common archetypal formula and comparing them to popular Western books and films
“Eros and Agape: Behind the Lovely Ice-skating Veils” by Takuto’s Anime Cafe – a clear explanation of the Eros and Agape personas assigned by Viktor to the two Yuris from the smash-hit anime this season Yuri!!! on Ice; I love this post!!!
“I Am Human” by Karandi (100 Word Anime) – thought-provoking post discussing what makes humans “human”; drawing examples from anime such as FMA, Parasyte, Gundam series, and others
“Learning to dive: one anxious girl’s outlook on anime” by Elisabeth O’Neill (Little Anime Blog) – a very personal and touching post about how the author deals with emotional and social challenges by pulling inspiration from anime
“╬Let’s Rant On: Labels and Misconceptions of Fujoshi” by Cat (Another Gaming Day) – a short but very relatable post for BL fans discussing the most common misconceptions associated with the label “fujoshi”
“Pair the Spares – Why It Should Be Handled Cautiously” by remyfool – interesting post discussing the tendency of many romance anime series to pair everyone off for a happy ending even without previous hints of romantic development
“Precursor to a Legacy: My Thoughts on Dragon Ball” by Kapodaco – honest review of the original Dragon Ball anime discussing the negatives but also balancing it out with the positives; explains how DB might not be impressive but it undoubtedly is the precursor of a still-strong legacy
“RWBY Is An Anime. Deal With IT!!” by NEETaku – a thought-provoking post discussing what kind of shows can be called “anime” and challenging the general opinion that anime is limited to animated shows created in Japan only
“The Curious Case of Short-Form Anime” by ThunderStryke (The Omega Geek) – a short but sweet appreciation post for short-form anime and why it’s worth it to watch them
“Wait, Are those Guys Kissing?!: My Yaoi Journey- Part I” by pokeninja90 (Nice Job Breaking it, Hero) – a funny post about the author’s discovery of the yaoi genre and her journey into becoming a fujoshi
