Another update/adjustment for the blog – though it’ll probably feel minor, I have added a couple of things to my plan. (And removed others for now).
A reminder of the goals I had in mind in the past:
- Keep reviewing at my own pace
- More Anime
- Review albums
- More discussion posts
- Review more games
- Do more collaborations
- Release a book
Has much changed? Yes and no, I guess. I’ll quickly address a few of them before I get to the additions:
- Review (nearly anything) at my own pace:
Basically this is still happening – although I haven’t done much stuff outside the form of animation.
3. Review Albums
Still haven’t tried this.
Not sure if I will go this way at this stage, we’ll see.
4. More Discussion Posts
Only managed one, from memory.
These might not end up being a goal, so much as just a super-occasional thing that I sometimes do.
5. Review More Games
I still want to keep this one.
Plenty of cross-over with audience-interest here, I guess, but I still haven’t done this yet. One day!
6. More Collaborations
I love and recommend doing collaborations, so I’m very pleased that things are going well there.
7. Release a book
Still no progress. Again, it feels like 100% a vanity project so it’s not high on the list of priorities for now.
Cover Art Comparison
This is one started doing monthly a while back and while I forgot for a long while, I’d like to resurrect this type of post.
Just not monthly, more like ‘whenever I feel like it’ might be best 🙂
A bit like above, I was doing this on a monthly schedule at one point but it turns out that I dropped the ball again.
And so it too, while it’ll stick around, might be appearing only when I think to do so. (Next one should probably be Nomad since I’ve enjoyed both so much).
What Else Did They Write?
An extra new thing now.
What I’d like to do, is a post that highlights an anime writer and explores other things they’ve written. It might be several episodes or a whole show/film, but I’ll do some highlighting and maybe analysis.
As a very quick example, Sadayuki Murai adapted the Perfect Blue script and also worked on another Kon film, along with Steamboy. I was surprised to realise that I hadn’t noticed he also wrote one of the standout Cowboy Bebop episodes: ‘Pierrot le Fou’.
Okay, so that’s it – update/adjusted goals/reflection thingy post complete!
