Hey people on the Internet!
How are you? I hope everyone’s staying safe and sane during this difficult time.
I haven’t made a blog update in a while, so I just wanted to take the time out to touch base with everyone about the state of the blog and some things I have planned for the future.
First of all, I know my postings have been spotty lately. I was on a schedule of uploading Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, but now I’m kinda all over the place. It’s a combination of several factors, but the main point is I’m still going to try to keep a three postings a week schedule, but when I post during the week will probably be less predictable than it has been in the past. I’m going to try to work out a more iron-clad schedule for later in the year, but this is what I got for now.
Secondly, very minor note, but I have updated the screencaps on the Yu-Gi-Oh GX SDC to more high-quality versions.
Thirdly, both my episode-by-episode reviews of Tokyo Mew Mew and Hell Girl: Two Mirrors are going to be complete soon. I plan on having them both complete by the end of May. As a result, I’ll be needing two new series to review episode-by-episode to help with quick content flow soon.
I was considering having Space/Time Detective Genshi-Kun/Flint the Time Detective’s SDC replace TMM since I want to crack another one of those out (I’ve been doing SDC’s for way too long to not have more than one complete series. Keep in mind, these started before my blog even existed.) and Genshi seems to have the least amount of episodes.
The main issue with that is that SDC’s take quite a bit of time to write and post, considering I need to watch slowly, I need to be watching two versions of the same episode at the same time and I need to take screenshots of every change. It definitely takes longer than merely watching an episode and reviewing it, so I’m worried I’d be very sluggish here.
I don’t really want to start the third Hell Girl series until October for Animating Halloween, so I have to choose something else to fill that spot. I do have some series that I’ve been reviewing ‘behind the scenes’ so to speak (Such as all of the Dot Hack anime series for a bulk review (Up to episode 6 for each), Yu-Gi-Oh Season Zero (AniManga Clash) (Also episode 6) Three-Way AniManga Clash for Fruits Basket (Manga, 2003 and 2019 versions – Up to episode four here) and a ‘Clean Slate’ review of Evangelion (Up to episode five)) but I haven’t settled on anything as of yet.
Depending on how things go, there might be even more of a lull in posting if I have continued difficulty figuring out what should replace these two.
If anyone has any suggestions for successive reviews or comparisons (Episode by episode series, chapter-by-chapter or volume-by-volume manga etc.) you’d like to see replace either of these series, especially if they’re series I’m already working on as to help get more ‘completed”s under my belt, I welcome them. ♥
Finally, I have revived my dead DeviantArt account as I have been doing a lot more art over the quarantine. I have been doing art my whole life, and it’s very therapeutic, but I tend to get into massive lulls in drawing due to lack of drive and personal factors, so if there’s anything good that came out of this it’s getting me off my ass and doing more art, even if the quality varies wildly.
As of now, this really has nothing to do with my blog (Except I make some pictures of Pokemon lol), but I do have plans in the future for doing a one-art-per-review kind of series. I won’t be doing the picture alongside the reviews as they come out, that’d definitely be something I couldn’t keep up with, but for the series and movies I’ve reviewed in the past (Yes, even the bad ones), I want to make at least one picture in some medium about it. I think it would help me exercise my abilities quite a bit, especially with styles, and would be something fun and fulfilling. Hopefully you guys would enjoy it too. No idea when I’d start this, but I thought I’d share the idea with you anyway.
For the most part, every blog series I’ve been doing is still business as usual. I’m really trying to pace myself because I know I have such a problem with doing too much at once, which leads to me never getting anything actually done, ironically (I mean, just look at when the reviews of TMM and Hell Girl: Two Mirrors started. Yikes. D:)
I really should dedicate whole months to getting big chunks of certain blog series done before I continue on with other stuff, because where I’m at now is just ridonkulous. I have years-old documents I still haven’t gotten around to posting yet, and I more commonly write and post new stuff to stay on schedule in order to ensure all of the series at least get one update sometimes. I am very uncoordinated blogger. 😦 Just gotta keep trying my best, I suppose.
Anyhoo, that’s all I got for you today. Keep staying safe, and thanks for sticking by me through all of this. See ya soon! 🙂
