Good day, folks! How are you all doing? Today, I would like to share my recent guest post I wrote for our friend Brandon on his website Anime Mode Universe. The title of my guest post is “Yes, Real Men Cry (Masculinity in ONE PIECE)”.
Hey, guys! My name is Brandon, and I am the founder and CEO of Anime Mode Universe, a new anime social media news network. More importantly, I am an anime blogger, and I have been given the great honor of dethroning Arria as the blogger here (kidding). Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did writing it.
The Naruto series has already gone down as one of the best anime series of all time. It is a household name in the anime industry, even to people who don’t watch anime regularly. Although Naruto is extensive with about 720 episodes, there are a lot of epic battles that just didn’t happen in this awesome series. Without further ado, here are the 5 hypothetical, must see Naruto battles.
Hello folks! We of the Otaku Warriors for Liberty & Self-Respect (OWLS) have reached our 3rd blog tour. How exciting is that? I hope that you enjoyed last month’s Yuri on Ice “Flight” Blog Tour. It was super fun, believe me. This month’s topic is Sanctuary and it’s our busiest blog tour yet, with 3-4 bloggers posting every week. I hope you enjoyed Rai’s tour post this past Monday about “chuunibyou”. She did a great job. Now it’s my turn. Here we go.
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.
Hello, my dear folks! I’m ecstatic that it’s finally my turn for our first blog tour together as OWLS. I hope that you enjoyed Venus’ tour stop over at Japanime Talks this past Monday. If you haven’t checked out her post yet, do so now! Thanks and I hope that you enjoy my post for today.
“Disruptors” Blog Tour
“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.
I don’t typically watch seasonal anime. Waiting for new episodes on a weekly basis frustrates me. I’m a show marathoner, so I prefer waiting for all episodes to be released before watching a show in one go. Exceptions include ONE PIECE (my #1 favourite series), of course, because I’d probably be in a nursing home by the time it finally ends. (*≧▽≦)ﾉｼ)) Another reason why I don’t like watching seasonal anime is the overwhelming hype among fans around the airing period. As a viewer and as a blogger, I try to avoid exposing myself too much to other fans’ opinions as much as possible, especially while a show is still airing. I like forming my own impressions and opinions, which can be difficult when you’re bombarded by hype in all directions.
