Best Posts Round-Up of the 8th Fujinsei Blog Carnival

Hi, my beautiful folks! How are you all doing? Oh my goodness. 2016 is almost over! Can you believe it? Time flies by so fast. Before we know it, we’ll be grandpas and grandmas.

Well, enough of my useless babbling. Without further ado, I hereby declare the 8th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! For this blog carnival, there were a total of 41 “approved” entries. I feel bad, but I had to delete a few number of original entries because they violated my rules. Well, there’s no helping it. I have to protect the rules to maintain order in these carnivals.

My big thanks to all those who participated, whether you submitted an entry or just hovered to read some great posts. These blog carnivals wouldn’t be possible without you. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

So here are the best posts I chose this carnival:

Arria’s Best Posts Round-Up of the 8th Fujinsei Blog Carnival:
(arranged alphabetically)

“Anime Victims Of Sacrifice” by LitaKino Anime Corner – some examples of the most common sacrifices anime characters make

“Legendary Era Of Anime: What’s Your Ultimate Nostalgia?” by Kurumi Shim – nostalgic post featuring childhood staples of many 90’s anime fans, including Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho, etc.

“Pokemon Battles: Is the Concept Humane?” by Book Trekker – an attempt to explain why Pokemon battles are “humane” and not like brutal cockfights; MUST-READ!!!

“Seasons of the witch: the changing nature of witchcraft in anime” by Elisabeth O’Neill (Little Anime Blog) – observation of the changing portrayals of witches in anime 

“Shinichiro Watanabe and his Impact in Western Culture (Archive from ANOTHER CASTLE)” by Mark King (The Mind of the Hybrid One) – discusses the inspiration and influence of anime director Watanabe Shin’ichiro (Cowboy Bebop)

“The Ramblers Guide: How to Become an Elitist” by Lethargic Ramblings – a hilarious satirical piece poking fun on “anime elitists” or those viewers who think that their tastes in anime are the best and their opinions absolute

“Top 5 Positive Influences in Anime” by Matthew Castillo (Matt-in-the-Hat) – inspiring post every anime fan should read discussing why anime is good

“War is Sell” by Grant the Thief (Wave Motion Cannon) – intriguing post explaining why Build Fighters is the essence of the Gundam franchise because of commercialization

“Your Name | Kimi no Na wa: Interpreting Progress in Gender and Rule-breaking” by NaChiKyoTsuki97 (Atma & Funomena) – impressive analysis on the film Kimi no Na wa, discussing in depth its portrayal of gender among other things

It was so difficult to choose posts for this round-up, so congratulations to the 10 amazing bloggers listed above. Well done, folks! And yes, if you’re still wondering, I read ALL the submitted posts for this carnival. Please keep up the great work. Once again, thank you very much for participating. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Join me again for the next carnival which I’ll be holding soon on Monday (January 9). Please stay tuned.  I’m looking forward to reading more amazing posts.  Thank you very much.  I’ll see you on January 9 for the 9th Fujinsei Blog Carnival.  Take care.  Cheers!

  2. Hey Arria, thank you for mentioning my post. You are awesome as ever! Like the post said, I was inspired by Shay but my answers were my beliefs. During this carnival, I felt like a lot of people really agreed to my post.
    Let’s do another carnival again soon. Thank you Arria. 🙂
