Best Posts Round-Up of the 7th Fujinsei Blog Carnival

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:
(arranged alphabetically)

“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

I enjoyed reading all the posts submitted in this carnival. My big thanks and congratulations to the 10 awesome bloggers listed above. Please keep up the great work. I hope that you participate again at my next carnival. Once again, thank you very much to all the participants.

Join me again for the next carnival which I’ll be holding this coming Monday (December 5). Please stay tuned.  I’m looking forward to reading more amazing posts.  Thank you very much.  I’ll see you on December 5 for the 8th Fujinsei Blog Carnival.  Take care.  Cheers!

  3. Wow, thanks for choosing my post! I’m glad that you thought it was interesting enough. Those silly authors and studios really need to stop pairing up everyone in sight, though.

    Thanks once again for hosting these otaku blog carnivals! It seems like I missed a few on your round-up, so I have some nice reading to look forward to!

    See you in the next carnival~

    1. Thank you very much. I just want our bogging community, especially Otaku bloggers, to be stronger and more enjoyable. I enjoy reading all the posts, and I’m lucky that they all come in one place. I hope you participate at my next carnival. Keep on blogging. Cheers!

      1. You are definitely doing something great: and I am pretty sure that I speak for everyone when I say that it is appreciated by everyone. As for participating, I was not sure if I could. Though I review a lot of Anime, my blog is not an Anime exclusive blog (so wasn’t sure if I was allowed to participate lol😂). I have enjoyed reading a lot of the posts though! Keep up the great work you are doing😀

      2. Thank you. That’s fine. As long as the posts you submit are about anime and related to the industry. There are other participants who are not exclusive anibloggers. So feel free to participate. Cheers!

  6. Whoa-whoa-whoa. Did I just make the best post round-up this month? Thank you for this high honour Arria, it’s always a good feeling to see one of my silly little posts doing so well.
    I see a few posts on this list that I somehow managed to miss when I was going through the entries so it looks like you’ve given me plenty of extra reading to do! Roll on December’s carnival!
