Good day, folks! It’s officially spring season, and I can’t wait for the weather to follow suit. What’s more, there are exciting new anime titles to be aired this spring, and I’m sure all of us can’t wait to watch them. Anyway, let’s get on to business. Without further ado, I hereby declare the 10th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! This carnival saw a total of 33 “approved” entries. Not bad.
Once again, thank you to all the participants. These carnivals are nothing without you. I hope that you continue to participate and have fun connecting with each other. Now let me present my favourite posts from this carnival. Here they are:
Arria’s Best Posts Round-Up of the 10th Fujinsei Blog Carnival:
“Because we’re both girls: Scum’s Wish, first love and finding solace in yuri” by Elisabeth O’Neill (Little Anime Blog) – a touching post about yuri in the anime Scum’s Wish and connecting it with the blogger’s personal experience
“Clamp, or How the Forbidden Contrasts Commonality” by fumigami – fascinating post about the allure of CLAMP’s works such as Angelic Layer & Chobits in taking ordinary stories and making them extraordinarily memorable
“Ghost in the Shell: Merging identities” by blautoothdmand – an impressive academic post discussing identity issues in series like Ghost in the Shell; highly recommended
“I Really Do Adore Love Stage But You Have To Admit Its Rape Culture Is Showing” by Katrina Sade (Grimm Girl) – a thought-provoking discussion about rape culture in Love Stage and other yaoi series; MUST-READ!!!
“Life as an Anime” by Karandi (100 word Anime) – a fun, almost game-like post, encouraging you to imagine yourself as an anime character following a common pattern in some popular anime
“Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Brainstorm | Watching People Watch Anime” by NaChiKyoTsuki97 (Atma & Funomena) – an impressively written post discussing the anime Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid with livetweeting and live reaction phenomenon
“Mogu Mogu! Japanese Sweets by Sound” by A.Foo (Bites of Oishii) – a fun & informative post featuring yummy Japanese sweet desserts complete with pictures categorized by their onomatopoeic qualities; made me hungry; MUST-READ!!!
‘The Problem With “The Savior of Anime”’ by JuJu (Soul Chain Blog) – an intriguing rant against the belief that anime is dying
I enjoyed reading all the posts in this carnival, especially my favourites listed above. I’m so impressed with the quality this time. Wow. Well done! And once again, thank you very much for participating to my carnival.
