Best Posts Round-Up of the 13th Fujinsei Blog Carnival

Happy Autumn! Fall season is warmer than average here in Toronto, but I’m not complaining much because I got to wear my summer clothes a little longer. Anyway, let’s get back to business. Without further ado, I hereby declare the 13th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! It received a total of 29 “approved” entries.

Thank you very much to all the participants—veterans and newcomers alike. You’re the heart of these blog carnivals. And also thank you to those who read the participants’ blog posts, even if you didn’t submit your own links. You’re the best!

The following are my favourite posts from this carnival.

Arria’s Best Posts Round-Up of the 13th Fujinsei Blog Carnival:
(arranged alphabetically)

“A True Champion Can Adapt To Anything, But Don’t Mess With The Source Material” by Karandi (100 Word Anime) – a discussion on how preconceived notions condition many fans to hate a live-action adaptation before even watching it

“Close the Last Door and the Problem Tropes Found Within Boys Love and Yaoi” by Mistress of Yaoi (Yaoi Playground) – discusses some of the frustrating tropes in BL manga, e.g. demonizing female characters; must read!

“Ghost in the Shell & The Post-World Human | Identity & Self in a Cyber-Network” by NaChiKyoTsuki97 (Atma & Funomena) – an impressive analysis of Ghost in the Shell

“IN FLESH (PERSONAL LIST OF LIVE ACTION FILM ADAPTATIONS)” by ameithyst (Treasure Box) – a great list of live-action film adaptions of some Japanese manga

“Living Nervously” by Krystallina (Daiyamanga) – a response to the latest edition of the English release of the Sailor Moon manga which turns out to be less-than-perfect

“Patlabor: Applying realism to the mecha genre” by blautoothdmand – a fresh take on the mecha genre by adding a slice of life element with Patlabor

“Perfect World (Aruga Rie): Perfectly Captured My Heart” by TwoHappyCats – features an intriguing manga about a male lead with a disability

“Scattered Thoughts – why did Gyo fail?” by Aldael (Aldael’s Attic) – a fascinating critique of Junji Ito’s horror manga Gyo and its anime adaptation

“The Sakamoto death theory (Sakamoto Desu ga?) and why it’s wrong” by rossiroad (My Brain is Completely Empty) – debunks some of the death theory evidence of the Sakamoto

  1. Thank you for featuring me, I’m glad you enjoyed since I’m very proud of that post and all the research I had to do to find things out. Not Gonna lie, I had no idea how to disprove some of them until I really started looking.

    1. You’re welcome, Karandi. Your post is one of my top picks, especially since it’s about one of the most important issues that we fandom members are regularly discussing. Thanks for sharing it with us. Cheers!
