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My time at Japan Curiosity (now no longer updated) worked for me because it helped me write review posts, something I hadn’t done in a long time, and gave me a great excuse to catch up on the anime Netflix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