The WordPress Anime Awards

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

Hey friends! so, I didn’t actually have any plans of posting today, since I wanted to take a break before diving back into everything I have missed over the last few months. However, I didn’t want to make a short post reminding all of you to vote in the WordPress Anime Awards. I myself have not watched much from this year, so it did not feel like my vote was super informed. However, I am sure that many of you have been keeping up with stuff from this year, so make sure to have your voices heard by voting. The awards also have a ton of people from the community as judges including some of my favorite people Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews and Aya from Kawaiipaperpandas, along with many other awesome people.

With that being said, regular posts will probably return on Sunday. So until then, have a good one and stay safe.

Animated Observations Update #8: “Its Been a While” and Going on Break

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

Cmon, don’t look at me like that, life is hard, okay.

But, seriously, I apologize for the lack of serious updates outside of random tweets in the last couple of months. To be honest, for the first couple of months missed, I had thought I already posted updates. In only occurred to me last month that was not the case. So, since there is a little bit more to cover, this one is going to be longer. With that being said, here is what’s been happening.

Starting a Column at my University

Despite being able to write basically whatever I want on this platform, I do miss the days of being able to write for another organization. That is why I decided to join The Daily Beacon, my university’s newspaper, as an anime columnist. So far it has been fun, and I have a few more ideas for things I want to write. Plus, it always feels nice getting someone to edit your work and give feedback. Actually, one of the reason’s I had not joined before is because I did not realize they had open columnist positions. I am looking forward to writing more in the future. Speaking of writing for organizations,

Writing for KawaiiPaperPandas

You guys might have also seen that I have been writing weekly for Ayano’s blog Kawaiipaperpandas. Some of it is a little different from the stuff I have been publishing on here, so I would highly recommend you check it out. My last post on the blog focused on a Ghibli film that many might have forgotten about.

Lack of Motivation and Free Time

If I’m being honest, the main reason I haven’t been able to write a lot is a because of school taking over my life. I am pretty much always working on something and I have had very little time for personal writing.

However, another reason is just a lack of motivation. It has been hard to finish or even start new shows. It’s been a lot easier to just lie in my bed and watch YouTube. This has also lead to a lack of motivation to write anything anime related.

Taking a Break

Because of all of this, I will be taking a break from personal blogging for a little bit. I don’t want to force myself to try and write with no inspiration and burn myself out.

I will still be writing for Kawaiipaperpandas and my column, as well as OWLS, but other than that the blog will mostly be empty. My plan is to finish the challenge I started recently and then go silent for a while. I will still be checking my email and social media regularly, so if you need to get in contact with me than feel free to do so.

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.
