Welcome to the Second #Anitwitwatches!
In this article I’ll be explaining what this is for those of you who missed out on our first watch, Tonari no Seki-kun, as well as providing all the info you need on the next show the community voted on to watch, Rampo Kitan. This project has been a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to revisiting a show that inspired me a lot the first time around. Even if you didn’t join in on the first one, have seen the show like myself, or don’t have a Twitter, don’t be afraid to join in because I’m sure you’ll have a blast watching and discussing Rampo Kitan with everybody as well!
What is #Anitwitwatches?
This is a weekly community event meant to bring folks together to revisit old favorites and discover new shows. It’s meant to be something you can get as involved in as you want, there is no pressure to participate every week or every watch, but we’d love to have you to share in the experience and discuss the shows we are watching all the same!
I was inspired to do this after seeing the “rewatches” that people do over at Reddit in the r/anime sub. Since I interact with a lot of you guys on Twitter, I thought it would be the perfect place to do something similar! That said, even if you do not have a Twitter you can still join in by posting any content via WordPress, YouTube, or whatever suits your fancy. If you do, be sure to send me an email at email@example.com so I can share your wonderful creations!
For everyone else, simply watch the episodes for the week based on the schedule below. Make sure to use the hashtag, #anitwitwatches when you do, and that’s it! Discuss with the other folks participating, create content, and generally just have a fun time!
This next show was chosen based on YOUR votes, so let’s get to the watch schedule.
Rampo Kitan Watch Schedule
We will be taking a 1 week break, meaning that we will NOT be watching anything for the week of 9/9/19. This is to give me time to properly prepare for hosting the watch and give everybody else a little break before starting something new. We will be keeping the Monday time slot for this watch after careful consideration and feedback.
If you have not done so, you can see where you can watch Rampo Kitan for free, and legally, by using because.moe. Unfortunately, I cannot realistically check all regions but I aimed to make this as accessible as possible. That said, I won’t stop you from doing what you need to in order to participate. The more the merrier!
Here are the dates (all Mondays) and the episodes for each:
- 9/16/19 – Episodes 1-2
- 9/23/19 – Episode 3
- 9/30/19 – Episode 4
- 10/7/19 – Episode 5
- 10/14/19 – Episode 6
- 10/21/19 – Episodes 7-8
- 10/28/19 – Episode 9
- 11/4/19 – Episodes 10-11
This means we’ll have 8 weeks of Rampo Kitan. I carefully split the episodes up in the most logical way I could based on the content in order to create a fun viewing experience. I hope to see you for the watch!
