Best Posts Round-Up of the 11th Fujinsei Blog Carnival

Hello, folks! It’s been a while since I’ve done a blog carnival round-up, isn’t it? This is terribly late, but better late than never, right? Without further ado, I hereby declare the 11th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! It received a total of 35 “approved” entries.

I want to thank all of the participants. There were a few first-timers which is always awesome. I hope you enjoyed meeting with other fellow bloggers. Now let’s get to the good stuff. Here are my favourite posts from this carnival.

Arria’s Best Posts Round-Up of the 11th Fujinsei Blog Carnival:
(arranged alphabetically)

“ACCA: Human Connection, Politics and Everything” by Psychime – a well-written analysis of the anime ACCA, discussing politics and humanity, among other things

“Anime Tracking Site Comparison” by Plain Pasta and Plain Rice – very helpful resource post listing anime tracking websites to make keeping track of all the anime you’re watching easier and more convenient

“Chasing Sakura Cherry Blossoms in Japan” by A.Foo (Bites of Oishii) – a lovely post about the cultural event “hanami” every spring in Japan, when people gather and enjoy the beauty of sakura blossoms with friends and family, complete with beautiful photos

“The down sides of anime blogging” by Scott (Mechanical Anime Reviews) – very relatable post for a lot of anibloggers, revealing some of the most common drawbacks in anime blogging

“This Looks Average” Has This Been You?” by Lita Kino Anime Corner – excellent post advising anime fans not to take other fans’ opinions as final and to form your own judgment when it comes to shows you haven’t watched yet

“Victor’s Blush Means Everything (A Late to the Party Yuri!!! on ICE Post)” by Shoujo Thoughts – a great fangirl post detailing evidence that there is love between Victor and Yuri ⇐ I LOVE IT!!!

“Weekly Shonen Jump’s Ambitious New Era” by JuJu (SoulChain) – intriguing post discussing the end and start of a new era of manga in Weekly Shounen Jump, featuring some of the newest serialized manga in the magazine

Well done to the 10 bloggers who wrote the wonderful blog posts listed above. Your posts are my favourites from this blog carnival. Please keep up the great work!

The next blog carnival is fast approaching. I’ll host the 12th Fujinsei Blog Carnival this coming Monday (June 5). Please join me again and have fun connecting with fellow bloggers. I can’t wait to read another set of wonderful posts. All otaku bloggers unite! That’s all for today, folks. Have a beautiful day. Cheers!

  1. This whole thing has been so fun, you know? Bloooog carnival~~~ 🎡 You’re one cool duck, Arria! It’s such a good idea! I got to read new posts and I got to play part and it was awesomeness all around!

    1. Thank you! I just want to help our community here become tighter, you know? Because it would be so much fun and awesome, if that’s the case. I’m glad that you seem to be enjoying my carnivals. I hope that you participate again with the current one that just opened today. Hope to see you!

  2. I am always amazed at the amount of talent that is around when reading these posts. It also reminds me why I love blogging so much. It really has been a very enjoyable ride throughout, and the best thing is meeting all kinds of new people along the way.
    I can’t thank you enough for the amount of work you keep putting into these carnivals. It really is a great thing that you keep doing 😊

    1. You’re very welcome, but my thanks goes to all of you who participate and read the participants’ blog posts. I’m really thankful that you help me make these blog carnivals happen.
      Indeed, I’m also amazed at the amount of talent in our community. Some are so well-written and so entertaining. So awesome. Thanks!

  3. Wohoo! Congratulations to the winners… nah, it sounds bad. Screw it, I’ll congratulate anyone, have my congratulations, you who are at the top, you who barely made in the list and you too, who just partecipated!

    Thanks for sharing these posts, as a passive watcher it’s great to find so many good posts. My favourite is “The down sides of anime blogging” by the way, so much relatable… that I actually feel so relieved to have understood how to set my priorities: first Anime, Manga, LN and VN, then if I have time or am weirdly in the mood write. That when reality doesn’t interfere (which seldom happen).

    Ahhh, I remember those times… when I didn’t sleep because of Reality+Blog+2D…wait, that didn’t really change. I still don’t sleep. I see that Reality is the problem here, someone needs to make a Sansa (from the latest episode of Kado for those wondering, and if you are wondering about it, then you must immediately start watching it as you’ve been missing some great… things) soon because I’ll die otherwise.

    1. You’re so funny! Indeed, Scott’s post about the downsides of aniblogging is very relatable to a lot of us.

      As for not getting enough sleep, well, you’re not the only one. I bet that most of us here don’t get enough. Sigh. Anyway, thank you very much for dropping by. Please join the next one as well this coming week. Cheers!

      1. Yay, I’m entertaining. His post hit me like a thunder, it’s always very nice to see others are in the same boat (though it is quite… worrying, hope we all get to have some rest soon).

        Haha, it’s a pleasure to see these events. So I’m the one grateful here. Sure, I’ll gladly partecipate… if I’ll have a post ready… and if reality will be more lenient (as if, I don’t regard it as bitch for nothing after all). Some miracles can happen though.

      2. Ahaha. It is quite worrying. But at least we are a community here and we can get great moral support whenever we need it.

        The blog carnival is on now. Hopefully you can participate. It ends this coming Sunday. Hope to see you. Cheers!

      3. Yep, I experienced that personally and I’m seriously grateful to all of you. Seriously, I think this is the first time in my life (well, it hasn’t been that long, not even two decades, but who cares) that I feel like… “connected” is a too big word in my opinion, but the idea is “to belong to somewhere” feel… woah, that’s quite embarassing to say aloud. Oh, well. Glad that this isn’t RL. Internet is such a great thing.

        Hm, I think it’s hard to find a post of mine eligible, as most of mine are rants. Not to mention, the only anime only strictly related posts I make are published on 7thStyle (is that a problem though? Not being my personal blog I mean). Oh, but when I’ll feel confident enough about a post of mine, be assured that I’ll partecipate (as of now, I would have only a post, on 7th, about how cute Tsukai was in the latest episode of KADO, and… rants).


    1. It has been awhile. We didn’t have a blog carnival this past May because I was ill and took a hiatus. But I’m glad to be able to host it again. The next carnival will be this coming Monday, I hope that you participate again, bro. 🙂

      1. You’re very welcome Arria! You should always take care of yourself and try to rest as possible. Without you, blogging will not be as fun; we need you 🙂


  4. Thanks as always for hosting these and thanks for sharing some very cool links. These carnivals are always excellent for finding new bloggers and catching up on posts that we may have missed elsewhere.
