  1. Hopefully, I’m not yet too late for this carnival!

    LINK: https://japanimetalks.wordpress.com/2017/01/16/battledome-illumi-vs-itachi/

    Title: 1ST BATTLEDOME: THE SCARIER ‘ANIKI’ – ILLUMI ZOLDYCK VS. ITACHI UCHIHA

    Description: A look into different scenarios to see who is the scarier big brother between Itachi and Illumi.

    These two are my biases to each of their shows. Oh and Illumi won this round as per the current count. Who knows, your vote might change the status!

    Thanks Arria for this wonderful opportunity! God bless and more power!

  2. Hey all!

    This is my first Blog Carnival, and i’m so excited! I’ve been reading everyone’s submissions and they are wonderful! Been having so much fun reading.

    Other than that I am submitting something I posted today. It’s a fun and wacky review of Little Witch Academia Season 2 and difference aspects of the story, plot, characters, animation, etc.

    Thanks for reading and i’ll still be looking through this thread for more stories!

  3. Patlabor: Applying realism to the mecha genre.

    https://blautoothdmand.wordpress.com/2017/07/05/patlabor-applying-realism-to-the-mecha-genre/

    A look at the mecha franchise Mobile Police Patlabor and its uniquely realistic approach to the genre. I discuss the different elements that constitute this realism, as well as how the franchise draws a dividing line between its realistic self and its more nonrealistic mecha counterparts. Enjoy!

  4. This is going to be my first time participating here and I’d like to thank you for giving the opportunity to know more ani-bloggers!

    The post I’ll share here is entitled “In Flesh (Personal List of Live Action Film Adaptations”. It’s quite self-explanatory. I shared there the titles of the live action movies of some anime and manga series. I gave some opinions about each of them. Since the people here are ani-bloggers, they may like to check out at least one of those titles.

  5. Thanks for hosting the Blog Carnival again! I’ve found new and interesting sites to follow during every carnival!

    The title of the post I’d like to submit is “Re:Creators Ep 20: The Shattering Mirror and a Ghost from the Past.”

    The summary: In Re:Creators episode 20, “Somebody receives the power of creation, and the spirit is redeveloped from their passion,” Team Kikuchihara reels in the aftermath of the explosive climax of the previous episode. Altair continues to give the concept of “Over Powered” (OP) an even worse reputation. Takashi Matsubara urges the use of their secret weapon, which, of course, doesn’t go as planned. Finally, Souta Mizushino and Magane Chikujouin follow their own train of thought… Just what is Re:Creators building toward?

    Here’s the link: https://www.crowsworldofanime.com/posts/recreators-ep-20-the-shattering-mirror-and-a-ghost-from-the-past/

    I hope everyone enjoys it!

  6. Whoo! I do love the carnivals.

    This time around, I’m submitting the second semi-final of my Crunchyroll of the Dice 2017 tournament. The general idea of the tournament is to give myself an excuse to watch new shows, so I pick a few at random and pair them up. I then write up an epsiode form each of the two in a pair and comapre them in different categories, awarding points to the victor. This year, Round 1 was based on S1E1, the Semi-Finals on S1E2, and the Final and 3rd place play-off will be on S1E3.

    This battle took place between Flip Flappers and Interviews With Monster Girls. But which one advanced to the final?

  7. Heh, I was just starting to think to myself, “When’s her next blog carnival? I like those.” 😉

    Hmmmm… decisions, decisions (in selecting which post to share). One of these days, I need to come up with something more creative than just my reviews, but for now… eeny, meeny, miny, moe.

    This is one of my more recent reviews, talking about my experience with and thoughts on the anime, “Interviews With Monster Girls.” I hope you enjoy!

  8. I’d be happy to share with the community one of my older posts on Your Name; I approached the film with a different perspective and I’m always looking for feedback to boost my writing. In my discussion, I look at the movie from a big-picture perspective and articulate what elements make it enjoyable for such a large group of people.

  9. i have openly admitted on numerous occasions that I myself am a hardcore fujoshi and yaoi lover, this however does not mean I am blind to many of the problem tropes plaguing the genre of yaoi and boys love. In my review Close the Last Door and the problem tropes within boys love and yaoi I wrote about some of these issues.

  10. Hello everyone! This is a post from a couple of months ago about how a few series have brought new life (at least temporarily) into the Iseekai genre and what makes these series stand out from other entries in the genre.

    Hopefully, you all will enjoy this exploration and thanks for the opportunity to share this!

  11. This is a really neat idea! As a new aniblogger its a fun way to get myself out there! I’m still trying to find a consistent way to write my reviews and other types of posts, if anyone has tips or advice I would appreciate it.

  12. I haven’t participated in this for a long while can’t remember the last time. Been too busy with other things but a great event for other bloggers as usual hehe ^^ So great event Arria XD

    My entry this time is focusing on the anime chivalry failed a knight as it was a surprising watch for it’s genre. I express why I feel it was a surprise and for it’s genre is a break through with having a meaningful story and characters within it.

  13. Yes, I’ve been looking forward to this. I’ve decided to submit a post about Sakamoto Desu Ga?

    The Sakamoto death theory (Sakamoto Desu ga?) and why it’s wrong

    https://mybrainiscompletelyempty.wordpress.com/2017/08/24/the-sakamoto-death-theory-sakamoto-desu-ga-and-why-its-wrong/

    When I heard about the Sakamoto death theory I was both shocked and confused at the sheer amount of people who believed it too be true. I explain what the theory is and why it’s wrong using a heck of a lot of research. I hope that you’ll check it out even if you have no strong opinion just so you can understand what the theory is.

    Since there’s only one submission as of this moment I’ll read it (So I’m guaranteed to not get kicked) and then come back later to read them all since I’d want the same thing to happen to me.

    Thanks for the opportunity, hope you all enjoy.

    (Message to just Arria: I’ve seen that you’ve viewed and liked the post already, I’m submitting it knowing that anyway so don’t worry about it.)

  14. Hi Arria. Thanks for hosting another one of these. I was going to choose an older post but I decided to actually go with my most recent feature which looks at fan reactions to adaptations.

    Friday’s Feature: A True Champion Can Adapt to Anything, But Don’t Mess With The Source Material.

    https://100wordanime.blog/2017/09/08/fridays-feature-a-true-champion-can-adapt-to-anything-but-dont-mess-with-the-source-material/

    While the post was initially inspired by the community response to Death Note, while writing it I kind of started thinking about the reaction to pretty much any adaptation and I’ve really liked the thoughts shared by some of the visitors who have read the post. There’s been some interesting points raised about various shows.

    Anyway, thanks again for hosting these and I’ll visit later in the week to check out some of the other posts.
