Site news, huh? Yup, nothing too serious, just more letting you know what you can come to expect from the site going forward!
Right, so go on then! So basically, I’m going to be doing less of the week-to-week single episode reviews, while they’re pretty easy to write—especially compared to the 20 Question Reviews—I’m ultimately not 100% happy with the quality of them. I think I can do better, but at the same time writing as many as I’m writing and improving the quality isn’t really an option as I want to be able to spend more of my time doing creative writing (i.e. working on my novels) as well as working on better blog content like lists, essays and manga reviews (which take a lot more time).
So basically breaking the promise you made to review every show you’re watching this anime season? Listen, it’s a learning experience for me, I’d never reviewed seasonal anime on this scale before! Okay?
I don’t actually care, means less work for me… It’s not like it’s going to stop reviewing week-to-week entirely, there’s still quite a few shows I want to review each week. I’m just going to stop reviewing the show’s that a) aren’t getting many views/interaction and b) the shows I don’t enjoy writing reviews for.
Okay, so which of the show’s you’re watching are going to continue to review and which are not? Anime with a
strikethrough are no longer being reviewed week-to-week but will have a 20 Question Anime Review at the end of the season. Butlers x Battlers
Food Wars! The Third PlateHigh School DxD Hero
Last Period: the journey to the end of the despair
Isekai Izakaya: Japanese Food From Another World
Kakuriyo -Bed and Breakfast for Spirits
My Hero Academia 3rd Season
The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These
Magical Girl Ore
PERSONA 5 the Animation
Space Battleship Tiramisu
Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online
Uma Musume: Pretty Derby!
That’s a lot. Well, I’m still reviewing nine shows week-to-week, also because I am still watching all these shows I reserve the right to occasionally review episodes that I find something worthwhile to talk about like how last anime season I did occasional reviews of particularly noteworthy episodes.
And what if people want to know your thoughts on an episode of a show that you’re no longer reviewing week-to-week? They can just ask me on Twitter!
Fair enough, anything else? Not really, I just hope nobody is too disappointed by this decision, but I ultimately think it’s going to prove for the best for the blog as there will be a lot more unique content on the site! I’d like to have weekly essays along the lines of my recent “Dying For Nothing” essay. As well as multiple anime related Top 10 lists and more 20 Question Anime and Manga reviews!
