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:

“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!!!
