[OWLS Blog Tour: Competition] Is it Really the Best to Be “The Best”?: My Hero Academia — 02/09/2018

[OWLS Blog Tour: Competition] Is it Really the Best to Be “The Best”?: My Hero Academia

Welcome to another OWLS post! This will be my eighth OWLS post, isn’t that insane? I still remember my excitement when I became a member and scheduled my very first OWLS post, back in June. I’ve also been able to contribute every month so far. There hasn’t been a topic too hard to completely block me, and for that I’m grateful and proud of myself.

If you aren’t aware of our group, we are a team of bloggers and vloggers, focused on bringing awareness to important topics in life represented in pop culture. We are accepting of everyone regardless of race, gender, sexuality, etc.

In honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics, this month topic will focus on the theme, “Competition” because the Olympics is where athletes from all countries join together to compete in sporting events. Through these events, we see how “competition” brings out the grit, the teamwork, and the competitive spirit within athletes. This month, we will be exploring anime and pop culture media that discusses the good and the bad when it comes to competition and what it can teach us about ourselves and the world around us.

Thank you Lyn for the wonderful topic as always!

Gosh, I was an idiot to choose December for this challenge. There was no way I could keep up with these daily prompts with the holidays happening. But I’ll still do all 30 of the prompts by the 30th of this month. I just had to give myself some slack in it. So, here are the past three prompts all on one day.

30 Day Anime Challenge! Day Twenty-two and Twenty-three — 12/23/2017

30 Day Anime Challenge! Day Twenty-two and Twenty-three

Well, I lied, I meant to not do this doubling up post again, but yesterday was my birthday and I ended up writing my fanfic and doing stuff with my family instead of writing this. But, I’m again making up for it now! It’s very possible I’ll have to do 24, 25, and 26 in one post since I’ll be at relatives’ houses for the next two days and I doubt they want me blogging while I’m there.

[OWLS Blog Tour: Bloodlines] Familial Bonds in My Hero Academia

Hello all! I have returned for a third OWLS tour! I will try to participate in all tours, though there are no promises.

For those of you new to OWLS posts, we are a non-discriminant group of anime loving people. We accept people of all race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. and we show our acceptance by writing a blog post or making a video on the month’s topic, focusing around anime or other pop culture. This month’s theme was on “Bloodlines,” or the family connections we have in our lives.

Top 10 Male Anime Characters — 07/16/2017

Top 10 Male Anime Characters

I did a top 10 of female characters a while back with the full intention of doing this post immediately after, but I guess I forgot about it. Well, here it is now. I’ll have to say this list was much easier to compile than Top 10 Female Anime Characters, for reasons I’m somewhat ashamed of. I’ve realized that when I become attached to a male character, they tend to have one or more of the following traits: short stature, short temper, and blond hair. Which almost every character on this list falls into.

Top 10 Female Anime Characters — 05/22/2017

Top 10 Female Anime Characters

I’m sorry for the long wait (2 months to be exact), I was finishing up classes these past couple weeks so I’ve had other things on my mind. It should be more frequent from now on.

I can always appreciate when an anime can make a female character right. There are too many that use the girls of anime as fanservice or give them a cardboard personality. All of the girls I have chosen for this list are not fanservice characters, and have great character qualities. I tried to get a variety from anime I watched a while ago and more recent ones. I’ve noticed I tend to talk about the same shows constantly, so I’m trying to mix it up a bit if I can.
