[CLOSED] 10th Fujinsei Blog Carnival: All Otaku Bloggers Welcome!

This blog carnival is now CLOSED.

It’s been a while, folks! I hope you are as excited as I am for this blog carnival. I hope you had a lovely February and that you’ll have an even lovelier March. Without further ado, let me declare the 10th Fujinsei Blog Carnival OPEN! Share your best posts and have fun connecting with our fellow bloggers. We welcome new participants, so don’t be shy! Also please don’t forget to read the following rules to avoid your submission from getting deleted.  Thank you.

Duration: March 6 to March 12

Rules of Participation:

  1. This carnival is OPEN ONLY to individuals who have blog posts about anime, manga, or anything related to Japanese culture and media, and of course the otaku world.
  2. Share the link to a specific blog post at the comment section below, NOT just your blog address.  Include title of blog post and a short description of your post.  It must be about anime, manga, or anything related to Japanese culture and media, and the otaku world. It doesn’t have to be a recent post.
  3. Only 1 link per blogger.
  4. Please visit at least one participant’s link; don’t just leave yours and move on.  This carnival is intended to foster a give-and-take relationship.
  5. If you wish to comment on a post, please visit the participant’s blog and comment there, not here.
  6. Shared blog posts must be decent.  No overly offensive materials.
  7. Participants who violate any or all of the above rules will be deleted from this carnival without any warning. This rule should be enough.

This blog carnival will close on March 12 (Sunday).  If you miss this carnival or have another blog post you want to share, feel free to participate on the next carnival which I will host again next month.

After this blog carnival ends, I will compile my favourite submissions into a “Best Posts Round-Up”.  Check out the previous one→“Best Posts Round-Up of the 9th Fujinsei Blog Carnival”

Please note that I’m not making you feel obligated to subscribe to any of the participants’ blogs, although I’m sure that they’ll greatly appreciate it if you do.  Feel free to subscribe only to those you liked.  My main purpose for hosting this carnival is for us otaku bloggers to have the chance to connect with each other.

De wa, go forth and explore each other’s blogs to your hearts’ content.  All otaku bloggers unite!

  1. Yay! Thanks for this wonderful event. There are so many great entries, and I salute these awesome Otaku bloggers.

    My entry this time is about a particular character. My previous entries were quite broad because I mentioned various series and some characters. So I was thinking maybe I could share a little bit about a specific character, and that is, one of the legendary girls, Sailor moon. Well, not one of my best posts, but I would really love to share it, especially if you’ve grown up watching this awesome magical girl.

    Maho Girls PreCure! Series Review – A Magical Year
    https://thetalkanime.wordpress.com/2017/02/28/maho-girls-precure-series-review-a-magical-year/

    This time my post is a review of the latest Precure series, Maho Girls PreCure!. I chose this post because I tried out a new blogging format and would love feedback on how it turned out, plus Maho Girls is a great show that more people should check out.

  3. Phew! Almost missed this one! I’ve not got anything too clever to use this time, but …

    While I am happy to point out if something has a glaring flaw while I am reviewing, I go out of my way to put an emphasis on the positive sides of whatever I happen to be writing about. I’m a positive person who believes that good can be found in most art, and I want my site to be representative of that. Even so, I went into Keijo!!!!!!!! expecting very little. In truth, I’m not a big fan of fan service in most situations, and I was wholly expecting the show to be among the handful that I couldn’t finish. Instead, I found some surprisingly entertaining moments on there. As such, here’s my relatively upbeat review:

  4. I probably have rewritten this little introduction multiple times now and finally said “Why don’t I just say this as an introduction section to myself?” I’ve always been a bit of an observer to these carnivals but never really joined in partly because I surprisingly have little anime or manga content on my blog. I need to remedy that very shortly.

    https://schizoidmouse.wordpress.com/2017/02/08/kuzu-no-honkai-and-modern-anime-sexuality/

    This is a particular post I wrote in response to episode 4 in Kuzu no Honkai relating it to sexuality within modern anime as a whole and hopefully showing how unique it is within romance anime. How it brings to life its characters through their sexual interactions breaking the mold of sexuality as an enticing thing (fan service) within modern anime and making it dark, cold and hollow.

    I hope you enjoy it! I’m really glad that you host these types of things Arria truly brings forth a sense of community. I’m glad I was able to take part in one.

  5. Yea! New Carnival ❤ Alright the blog post I will be submitting is my post, “I Really Do Adore Love Stage But Its Rape Culture Is Showing”.

    https://grimmgirl.com/2016/10/06/i-adore-love-stage-but-its-rape-culture-is-showing/

    It’s basically delves into the rape culture side of Love Stage and highlights some of the issues within the yaoi genre as a whole. I myself LOVE yaoi but as a consumer I recognize that rape culture is an issue within media. This post discusses that through the yaoi genre.

  6. Thanks for hosting another blog carnival! This is an awesome platform for reading posts from different bloggers.
    This post is more than a month old, but I had a lot of fun writing it: https://rodrovichanime.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/character-expression-through-rakugo-kikuhikos-performance-of-shinigami-and-his-solace-in-solitude/
    Title: Character Expression Through Rakugo: Kikuhiko’s Performance of ‘Shinigami’ and his Solace in Solitude.
    In this post, I breakdown Kikuhiko’s performance in episode 10 in season 1 and say how it correlates to his character.

  7. Yay! Another blog carnival. Thank you for holding these!

    For this blog tour, I want to include my post “Izetta: The Last Witch- Representing A Positive Image of Witchcraft

    In this post, I discuss how Izetta hints back at witchcraft’s real origins, and I discuss some of the misconceptions that exist about witchcraft.

    Here is the link to the post:

  8. Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Brainstorm | Watching People Watch Anime

    https://atmafunomena.wordpress.com/2017/03/07/miss-kobayashis-dragon-maid-watching-people-watch-anime/

    This post comes with a question: thoughts on livetweeting and live reaction videos.

    Overall, this discussion talks about Dragon Maid as a show that is great to experience in different…formats, whether its traditional anime episode, or as memes, screenshots or…I guess through reaction videos. It is a bit dense in detail, but it is an easy read, hopefully an enjoyable one too.

  9. Just found out about this. Don’t know too many ways to find new blogs, so this is nice~

    Here’s a post I just put out, titled: CLAMP, or How The Forbidden Contrasts Commonality. It’s a bit of a history lesson on CLAMP’s crazy ways, but the highlight topic is how Chobits gendered and consequently humanized a computer.
    https://plsnohate.wordpress.com/2017/03/07/clamp-or-how-the-forbidden-contrasts-commonality/

    It’s not the most polished post, I have a habit of making things unnecessarily succinct. More suited to video really, but expression is expression.

    I’d like to share my recent analysis of Little Witch Academia and how the passion and energy of the characters augment the show’s presentation.

    Happy carnival-reading everyone.

  12. Greetings, Arria, and all those choosing to participate this month!

    I’d like to share a post I did on the infamous School Days, as I look at what exactly makes it more than meets the eye and combat its title of “Worst anime ever.” Also note that just because I defend the series doesn’t imply that I find the series good. It’s simply something that deserves a second chance whilst putting aside any moral empathy.

    Looking forward to seeing what crops up in this month’s Carnival!

  13. yayyyy a new carnival!! Hmm what to feature this time around? Hmm I know!

    From my “Women Crush Wednesday” Series. Plural because these women are crushing it in their respective shows.

    Transcendence: Motoko Kusanagi
    https://heyitszel.wordpress.com/2017/01/25/transcendence-motoko-kusanagi/

    One of the many women I feature for bringing something to the table. I analyze The Major’s character in Ghost in the Shell and her search for “identity”.

  14. Alright here’s a big one that I dumped recently after seven months of absence.

    Ghost in the Shell: Merging identities
    https://blautoothdmand.wordpress.com/2017/02/25/ghost-in-the-shell-merging-identities/

    A look at Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell that aims to figure out what its climactic scene provides to its explored topics of identity. I move through each of the film’s different dualist identity conflicts, examining what they entail and how they’re depicted, to then return to Motoko’s and the Puppet Master’s final confrontation and see what it provides to the discourse.

    I’m really excited to be back and active again after so long, and can’t wait to read everyone else’s stuff!

  15. Waaah, another carnival, woo Arria bb!! 😽😽😽
    I’m gonna participate ofc!

    Manga Spotlight: Whistle
    Whistle is a sports manga, and is on my top series of sports for sure. It made me cry a lot, energized me, gave me passion and life, and I just came to care so much for all of them. It also made me get okay with soccer (I’ve never liked it 😹) which is a miracle by itself!
    I’m really fond of this one, and I’m ecstatic for the sequel announced, because that’s right THIS IS COMPLETED WOO. We all know how sports take forever and a day to complete, with this one there’s no such waiting 🙌

    I hope everyone enjoys/has fun in the carnival 🙌

In this post, I share some anime facts about myself and what are my preferences. I even share what is my favorite anime video game. Just facts about my anime interests.

  17. Thanks for blog carnival. 😀 Let me paste my analysis about the certain anime, Oregairu.

    Oregairu analysis – Yukinoshita Haruno Launched Operation Fire Doughnut (part1)

    In anime season 2 episode 3, Hachiman meets Haruno in the donut cafe and have some chat. But if you look carefully, you will know the interesting clue and how Haruno feels toward Hachiman and Yukino. If you are Oregairu fan, don’t miss it!!

  18. Always exciting to see one of your blog carnivals Arria – I always enjoy reading such a wide range of bloggers posts! This is the first time I’ve submitted anything myself so please be kind all: https://twanimeamateur.wordpress.com/2017/03/02/tackling-bullying-depression-and-disability-a-review-of-a-silent-voice/

    This is my review of A Silent Voice which is slowly being released in the west at the moment. Specifically, I focus on the way the film tackles the issues of depression and bullying in relation to disability.

    I will be sure to be back to have a read of some of the other posts 🙂
