Cheers to a New Year!

Hello everyone and happy new year! I hope you had a fun and safe holiday season.

Now I apologize, but this post is not going to be related to anime, k-dramas or k-pop.

Self promotion is the name of the game. So, let’s begin.

**Cough, Cough**

I work in film and started up a production company (Skoden Pictures) with a couple of great guys from university. We graduated almost a  year ago and have launched our very first crowdfunding campaign for our next short film.

If you like horror films and want more information on the project, then hop on over to our campaign page on Indiegogo!

We would really appreciate it if the campaign got shared around. And if you’re interested, each donation comes with some cool perks, like pins, t-shirts, etc.

I will also spread the love if anyone has a crowdfunding campaign they would like shared around, just comment below.

Cheers! 🙂

Anime Workouts

A new year has begun and as tradition goes, many people set out goals for themselves. You’ll hear plenty of people say they want to workout more, eat healthier, reach a goal weight, etc. But it can be difficult to keep up the momentum because you’ll hear just as often that people don’t reach their goal for many of reasons.

Why not use anime as a motivator? I’ve been there, and many others I’m sure, where you catch yourself watching 6+ hours of anime in one sitting, relaxing in bed with your favourite snack. Some may feel guilty about being a potato all day… but that quickly disappears as the next anime opening starts to play.

If you also wish to reach a workout goal for this year, here are a few anime related workouts to choose from! Continue reading

Less than stoked

Is it just me, or is there a lack of intriguing anime this fall season?

It could very well just be me, but there wasn’t even a hand full of new titles that made me excited. Yuri!!! on Ice and Keijo!!!!!!!! were the stand outs and I want to say the stories were what grabbed my attention, but I think the real reason was because their titles are quite enthusiastic.

There are a few anime from the summer that are still ongoing, like Days (TV) and the second season of Ajin started up not too long ago, but other then that there wasn’t much I wanted to add to my forever growing list of anime to watch.

I think what made me the most disappointed was that nothing really struck me as new. Which is really the only way I can describe it. That or there looked to be a lot of shoujo-esc anime whether that be from style, story, etc. that just didn’t grip me in the slightest.

I could just be going through an anime slump, and I hope all I’ll need is to watch some older titles to reinvigorate that anime-loving bug. Either way, I need some other perspectives.

But let me know your thoughts on this season’s selection of anime. And if there are titles that I should check out from this season let me know!

 

Many a thanks!

I’ve been busy this Halloween weekend baking, carving pumpkins, watching horror movies and hanging out with some great people. So I hope you’ve all had a great Halloween as well!

Sadly, I don’t have much of an anime related post today (I should have planned things out better…).

But I would like to thank two people that featured my Halloween Anime list on their blogs.

Karandi of 100wordanime does a segment called “In Case You Missed It” where they feature posts they found interesting that week. I was lucky enough to make the list along with many other interesting posts, that you should also check out.

LitaKino of Lita Kino Anime Corner does a bi-weekly Friday Feature where they also feature posts that caught their eye over the past 2 weeks. They picked out some great reviews in that post helped me even find some new anime to watch.

Help spread the joy of Halloween and check these people out!

(Feeling really inspired to do a features list sometime in the future… we shall see)

Thank you! And Happy Halloween ~

Halloween Anime

Tis the season for anime that oozes with creepy, horror, and supernatural elements.

It wasn’t until I was thinking about the perfect anime to watch during October that it made me realize just how little horror anime I have watched!

Mind you, just because it is October doesn’t mean we need to jump into Halloween with the expectations of only watching scary, gore filled anime (though, recently I’ve grown into my big girl pants a  wee bit more, I can handle a lot more than I thought I could).

Halloween is full of whimsy as well as horror so I’ve put together a few anime that you could watch this Halloween season. Who knows, maybe even a few of them. Continue reading
