Good day, dear friends! I hope that you are all feeling wonderful. Today I would like to put a spotlight on the awesome group that I’m part of, Otaku Warriors for Liberty & Self-Respect or OWLS, for short. Some of you already heard about us. I’m the Secretary and proud to be one of the founding members of the group, alongside other amazing otaku bloggers. Feel free to visit our official blog for more information about our group.
At the start of April, our awesome PR team, headed by Naja (Nice Job Breaking It, Hero) along with our dear President Katrina Sade (Grimm Girl) and the new addition to the PR team Lita (LitaKino Anime Corner), worked together and did a livestream on Youtube. Please watch it, if you haven’t yet. And also don’t forget to subscribe to our Youtube channel. Thank you.

These 3 lovely ladies discussed our “Sanctuary” Blog Tour last March. Our Chief Creative Officer LynLyn (Just Something About LynLyn) assigned this topic for us, the participating members, to write about:
A sanctuary is a place of safety and stability. In anime, there are several different places and environments that characters call “home.” For this topic, we will be discussing various locations and settings within certain anime series.
Please check out all the tour posts by the participating members here. In behalf of my fellow OWLS members, I would like to thank all of those who supported us during our “Sanctuary” blog tour. Your support means a lot to all of us. If you just learned about us now, please check out our previous blog tours.
“To disrupt” has a negative denotation, but rather than looking at the verb in a negative light, we are going to use the verb in a positive way. It’s like the word “protest” which has positive and negative connotations depending on the perspective of the person.
Disruptors: An individual or a group disturbing a system or social norms/conventions that they believe is destroying what is morally right.
An individual takes flight when there is a goal, a dream, or an ambition that he or she wants to achieve. However, for this blog post, we are going to look at “flight” in different lenses: the underdog’s dream, the possibilities that Yuri on Ice allows viewers to think about, and also the dangers of greed and ignorance that can influence one’s dream.
We are currently on our “Colors” Blog Tour this April. It’s still running, so please support us by reading and sharing all the tour posts by our participating members. You can view the full April schedule here. Big thanks to our Chief Creative Officer for assigning us yet another meaningful topic. Cheers, Lyn-sama!
April “Colors” Blog Tour
We are all part of one race, the human race. “Colors” refers to people of color in anime. For this monthly topic, we will be discussing how people of color or characters of different “races” (a literal alien race) are represented in anime. Some topics we are considering is the dangers of stereotyping, bi-racial characters, and the importance of racial inclusion.
As you can see, we cover quite relevant issues and we discuss it through our otaku lens. If you’re an otaku blogger, vlogger, or podcaster and would like to do something meaningful by promoting acceptance within the fandom, then I recommend that you apply to be an OWLS member. Feel free to get in touch with us through any of the following:
We welcome new, committed members! Don’t be shy. Join our movement and use your voice to spread acceptance within our community and the fandom. Thank you!
That’s all for today. Have a glorious day. Cheers!
Free to be ME,
Arria (OWLS Secretary)
