And so quietly our 2 years anniversary is today even though if our domain hadn’t died it would have been 4 years for me and like 5 for JP. Honestly I don’t really expect much activity in this blog in the coming year. I don’t want to completely say “I quit” and close the blog but I guess the passion just isn’t there. My focus has and will be on otome gaming as well as MMO gaming on my other blog. JP’s been occupied with Fallout New Vegas and he’s gone through my entire list of stuff I “forced” him to watch. Even the shows I do watch I mostly blurb 1 or 2 things on twitter about it and that’s as much as I say about anime anymore. I mean what am I going to blog about every week?
- That Kirino is a bitch who needs to die in a fire?
- That Panty & Stocking is like the most awesome show ever?
- That there’s a horrible porn scene in Yosuga every week?
- That someone died in Hakuoki?
- Or that Kishimoto brought back stock character #44 in Naruto and now they gotta fight again?
Anyway you get the picture. Anime blogging was great back in 2006 when it was new, raws were still hard to obtain and the blogosphere was booming with fresh new blogs. Now I hardly know any new bloggers anymore. I don’t really read anime blogs anymore since my interest in new shows is pretty low. Because of google reader and twitter most of the conversations and discussions have been moved over there. I guess the anime blogging medium in my eyes is kinda dead – but maybe it’s still alive in someone else’s. We’ll keep this blog around in case one of us gets inspired to write anything but it’s definitely the end of an era in my eyes.
JP: Stupid 3 year computer game backlog! I actually do have hundreds of gigs of anime sitting here queued up to write about, I just can’t force myself to stop playing computer games and actually watch them—and this is stuff that I genuinely do want to watch! So hopefully I won’t end up like Momotato and only a year-end awards post (which I will make as usual!)
