Joining #TheJCO: A mini-Update

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

More than two posts in a week?! Blasphemy I know.

This post, as the title might suggest, is more of a blog update. “An update on what?” you might be asking? Well, I’ll tell you if you give me a minute, sheesh.

As of couple days ago, I have officially joined a collective of bloggers and creators known as The Jon Spencer Coalition, or #TheJCO.

If you want a more detailed description of the organization, go ahead and click here, but basically it is a group whose goal is to help everyone in the group grow, by way of supporting and collaborating with each other. As of right now, the group is limited to those listed, but this could change in the future. Additionally, we want to create an online community through which people can discuss and share there interests.

Now, if you’ve gotten to this point that means you at least care a little, I’m assuming, so I’ll explain why I joined. Basically, I enjoy interacting with a lot of the people who were already in the community, so I figured this would be a great excuse to hang out with them even more, and help with them becoming bigger and better creators.

If that sounds like something you are interested in, then feel free to join the Jon Spencer discord and come hang out, I promise that you probably won’t get eaten.

and…yeah, that’s it, I think? yeah.

Animated Observations Update #3

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

First off, I want to just say once again thank you to everyone who reads my work here one Animated Observations. I started this blog as a way to escape the real world and deal with my depression in a more manageable way. Since then, I’ve gone through a few name changes, but I have also managed to deal with a lot of my problems from when I started. I am two years in and approaching almost 300 followers, which is crazy to think about. Of course, I probably would be writing stuff even if I did not have an audience, but its always nice to have people willing to levy criticism. So, again, thank you all. With that said though, here is everything I have to update you all on this month.

Solidly Liquid (Sorry, I need the self promo)

I know I have mentioned it a lot already, but If you have not yet, you should check out my new writing blog, Solidly liquid, and follow the blog on social media. It would be a big help in getting my writing out there. I post at least once a week. Right now, I have been focusing mainly on poetry, but I hope to add some other stuff there in the future.

Seasonal Anime and Doing My Own Thing

I have had a lot of problems with balancing both relevant topics and my own creative endeavors, but as of now I am just gonna drop the balancing act and focus on the things I want to write about. Tbh, I was never really that good at it anyway.

All this really means at this point is that any of the seasonal first impressions and episode reactions will just get replaced by other things. Apologies to those who were looking for more seasonal content to consume, It’s just not what I enjoy writing about. I will still probably keep up on some of the seasonal shows, just will not be writing about them anymore.

My New Hobbie: SMASHing

Ok, bad joke. But yeah, I’ve been playing/watching a lot of competitive smash, and I have really been enjoying it. Can’t say I am particularly good, but am definitely learning a lot the more I play. I have also started going to weeklies in my area, and I also got to try commentating, which was a lot of fun.

Admittedly, since I am a pretty emotional personal, losing hits pretty hard, but overall its been a great experience and the people at my weeklies are cool for the most part.

School and Overall Content

College is something I have found, even doing it part time, can take away a lot of your ability to do what you want, which is why doing it full time is probably going to require most of my attention. That being said, it probably means that overall content on this blog is going to be a lot lower. Of course, I would still like to try and be as consistent as possible, so I am going to set myself to a goal of at least one post a week, even when college gets busy.

I start on the 21st of next month, so I still have a bit of time, but I felt it would be better to let you all know now.


What anime have you all been enjoying lately? Let me know in the comments below.

Animated Observations Update #2: New Blog and What I’ve Been Up To

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

Well, here I am, back again with very little to report. I wish I could say I have been up to a whole lot, but I haven’t been. Anyway, lets get into everything I need to tell you all about.

Before that, though, I’ve decided to make my updates monthly instead of biweekly. I feel it will make for more interesting update posts when I have more things to report back on. If something comes up that requires an immediate answer to, I will just make a separate post.

Solidly Liquid

First up, if you followed me for my poetry/short stories, then I would highly suggest going over to my new blog, Solidly Liquid, as that’s where I will be posting that type of content from now on. As of right now I have been slowly re-uploading some older poetry, but I will get back to posting new stuff extremely soon.

Summer Anime Season

The summer anime season will be here within a matter or weeks, and I am definitely looking forward to at least a few of the new shows, so do expect to see some episode reactions coming soon.

A New Hobby Approaches…

If you all are following me on Twitter, than you probably know that I’ve gotten really into Smash Bros Ultimate since I got a switch. I’m still pretty bad, but its something I enjoy playing, and also enjoy watching a lot. At this point my goal is to get good enough to make it to Grand Finals at a locals, so hopefully in time I can succeed at that.

That’s all I have to talk about right now. Thanks for reading, and stick around for great anime content/discussion.

Animated Observations Update #1: Returning Soon, and Things to Come

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

Alright, so I know I’ve been gone for a minute, but I promise I will be coming back soon. Here is what’s going on.

As of either Saturday or Sunday I will be leaving to visit family up in Connecticut, which for anyone who doesn’t live in the U.S. is in the northeast, about 14 hours away from where I live. Specifically, I am helping my grandmother move into a new apartment. I will be getting back from my trip the following Saturday and from that point on will be resuming regular blogging activities.

Until that time comes I will probably post one or two things somewhat sporadically over the next week, both on this blog and on my new writing blog, Solidly Liquid. I can’t say it enough times, but thank you to everyone who has continued to stay with me and read my stuff. It is much appreciated.

As always, if you want to support me, you can donate on ko-fi:
