Aniwriter Update #15: New Collaborations and Announcements

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

While we’ve all been enjoying the fruits of what looks to be a pretty good anime season, at least for the past two weeks, I’ve actually been pretty busy. I finally started hashing out some of the details on my book idea with my friend and have gotten to writing it, and I’ve also been working on some collabs, which was one of my new year’s resolutions.


Collab with KawaiiPaperPandas

You guys might have seen it already, but in case you haven’t, I did a fun collab with Ayano from KawaiiPaperPandas in which we talked about which anime characters would best represent different zodiac signs. I did the regular zodiac signs, and she did the Chinese zodiac, so if that interests you at all you can click the link above.

Future Writing on Another Blog?

Another thing you might have seen these last two weeks is an announcement from Sam over on A Nerdy Perspective on her new site called Sounds of the Rising Sun, where she is going to be talking about Japanese music and things related to it. In her original post describing the project, Sam also asked for contributors, and so now I am going to be one. I will be writing a series of posts, most likely weekly, where I talk about the music behind different anime openings and what makes them unique and awesome or maybe not so. So, if you want to see more writing from me in the future on a different site, be sure to give it a follow.

Brotherhoods are Pretty Cool – Brotherhood of the World Blog Award

Welcome, weebs and authors alike, to The Aniwriter

Last week, I was nominated by one of my favorite fellow bloggers, Sam from A Nerdy Perspective, for the Brotherhood of the World Blog Award. Being part of a brotherhood definitely seems cool, and I would also like to go on secret missions, so…whoever is out there waiting to give me a secret mission, I’m totally ready.

Anyway, here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the questions sent to you.
  • Nominate around 10 bloggers.
  • Create your own set of questions for your nominees and display the rules.

And now for the questions from Sam:

What is your favorite TV show outside of anime?

For a while, it was walking dead, but as I’ve watched a lot more TV, I’ve found myself drawn to a lot of other shows. If we’re talking just live action shows, then its House of Cards hands down. With animated series included, then I’d probably have to give that to Steven Universe.

If you were playing a game of Dungeons and Dragons what would your character be and why?

I’ve actually played a couple of Dungeons and Dragons games before. My first time playing I was a Cleric and the second time I was a paladin. Other than those, I would say probably wizard, especially since wizards in 5th edition are really good.

You have two machines. One can take you into the depths of space and you can travel across the universe. The other is a time machine which can take you to whatever point in time in the past or future. Which do you choose and why?

Probably the time machine. I think it would be a lot more interesting to study different points in time and look at how other people lived than it would be to explore space. That’s just me though.

Which anime/manga/game/movie/etc do you think has been the best to come out of 2018 so far?

Megalo Box for sure. I would not be surprised if this show sweeps the Crunchyroll anime awards like My Hero Academia did last year.

What attracted you to anime/manga/gaming in the first place?

Basically, my own loneliness. I was never much for social interaction when I was younger, and when I discovered anime for the first time, it felt like I had discovered a whole new realm of possibilities. I could preoccupy myself and not get that same feeling of loneliness.

And now for some other nominations; apologies to everyone who has already been nominated

I know the rules say ten people, but considering how quickly everyone usually gets tagged for these kinds of things, I’ll keep the list short, as well as the questions. If anyone wants to answer the questions themselves in the comments or in a separate post, feel free.

Has your blog ever affected you positively in your personal life, aside from the benefit of being able to write?

What time period in history do you find most interesting?

What is the most interesting place you’ve been?
