Anime Solstice in 2019.

2019

I won’t lie when I say that this blog has become on-and-off for like forever. And I usually find myself with next to nothing to write about. Even my last post was unrelated to anime and ended up being how frustrated I was with the ranked ladder of one of my favourite games.

I’m hoping to change that though, and have some kind of structure.

What sets this unknown blog from others? Nothing. Some others I highly respect rock because of the angle they have. Anime Feminist look at anime from a feminist and progressive POV, while Beneath the Tangles takes a more Christian look at it. Others I like specialise in their own genres, like shounen and yuri and mecha. Well since I have quite the varied tastes which have changed in the 20+ years I’ve been into anime, I asked myself what exactly should I do?

And then I asked myself: “All the big shows are huge because of their big…ness. So what about the unknowns and the unheard-ofs?”

My time at Japan Curiosity (now no longer updated) worked for me because it helped me write review posts, something I hadn’t done in a long time, and gave me a great excuse to catch up on the anime Netflix had to offer.

So from here on, I’m going to try and get Anime Solstice to become a review site once again. I already watch recent anime and have a column for it on The OASG, and there are plenty of blogs and sites out there that look at the huge anime franchises, so I’ll instead be looking at the unknowns and the unheard-ofs.

I’ll be starting with one little-known show that I’m especially fond of, with a post for it coming soon, so watch this space 🙂

Blogging is still a thing, I guess…

Oh my fucking god. I still have this thing? Well I guess I do.

And will I be returning? I suppose so.

In the meantime, I have a column on OASG. I’m reviewing New Game!!, Love & Lies, Sakura Quest, and looking back at Squid Girl (whilst moaning about not having Splatoon 2 yet!). And I’ll be talking about the latest Monogatari outing when that comes out.

Goodbye domain, hello new name.

I have gone through a couple of renovations, or so-called renovations. Most, if not all of them, wind up in me just updating more. But I’ve just decided to have enough.

My domain name has gone completely. And the blog name has changed completely.

I merely liked the sound of the word ‘solstice’, and I figure that it’s a small step forward in just having a blog title that just contains myself and the topic of discussion.

Be creative, said my little mind.

Hope you like it.
