Greetings! I am here again with another quick update. I wanted to share with you what I am looking to for the final month of this year I know we are already about half way through it- life has rough for me the last few weeks. Now I am getting back into the swing of things again and hopefully should have more time for blogging.
Anyway, I have decided to bring back a thing I did a few years ago where I finished off the year by focusing on Anime films. I generally don’t cover films a lot on the blog. Discussing films is still something I am working out how to do well on this platform. However, I’m willing to give it a shot under my current “review” format. I know I promised a Steins; Gate post a while back and I am still working on that. I also have about a dozen other series that I wish to discuss and I should get to those eventually. I have so much that I want to say that condensing my thoughts is taking longer than expected. Anyway, I wanted to do something different for the holidays and exploring films seems like a fun thing to do. Some of the films premiered this year and some did.
There will be 5 films for sure and if things go well I will do a sixth film. I figure I will reveal the first film here and the other films as I write each post. It’s more fun if your are left guessing a bit. The first film that I will discussing is….. Mirai.
When I write the Mirai post, I will reveal what the second film is. On the post for the second the third will be revealed and so on. I would happy to hear your guesses in the comments as to what the other films will be. My goal is to have the ready around the Christmas holiday and to publish them on subsequent days. Hopefully, I an get them done!
As for the other order of business, I want to briefly discuss what will be happening with my 2018 anime awards. As of now, I will be doing actually 2 sets of awards. As many of you are aware, 2018 saw an insane amount of spinoff and sequel series. There was also a bunch of new amazing properties as well. I think it is kind of unfair to pit the new series against the returning ones, so I will be separating them. One set of awards will go the new series, another will go to the sequels/spinoffs.
I will be doing the awards in January 2019 hopefully after the current season ends. I will start with sharing with you a list of all the series that will be under consideration for the awards. These will pretty much be the series that I watched in some capacity this year including ones that I didn’t finish. I will also let you which categories I will awarding in that same post.
So that is all I have for you right now. Now it is time to stop talking about what I will do and actually start doing it. I will also try to get a couple of posts out before the holidays as well. I’ve got a busy couple of months planned for the blog so I need to get started! So until next time, this is Railgunfan75 signing off!
