The First Anniversary of the Jon’s Creator Showcase – A Warm Thank You & Submission Update

CONGRATULATIONS!

Thanks to YOU and the efforts of the community Jon’s Creator Showcase is now celebrating its first successful year! To think, this project was almost completely shutdown after the first month of operation, and there was a bit of a rough patch towards the end, but everything worked out and it is now a fairly beloved staple in our community here. To every single person who has hosted, submitted, or promoted the project in any way:

THANK YOU!

Is Lucky Star Still Relevant for the Modern Otaku? – A Quick Review & Discussion With The Anime Blogging Party

Some shows come into the spotlight and stay there while others fall to the wayside to the, “next big thing.” Of course, there is the opposite that happens with time where a show went unnoticed when it first came out but is now heralded as essential viewing for devoted Otaku. Today I’d like to talk about one show in particular, Lucky Star. We’ll explore its interesting past, the cultural marks it left, and try to answer the question:  is this show still relevant?

Anime Blogging Party & Update

Hey There!

Sorry for getting today’s article out late but I had some extra stuff to do this week that I wasn’t expecting. Any way, I wanted to tell you about this super amazing thing that Arthifis is putting on called the Anime Blogging Party. It’s a Facebook group for anime bloggers, YouTubers, or anybody who just wants to talk about anime. Anybody is welcome! I hope you’ll join us if you haven’t already because it is already pretty cool and it just started out.

I’ll be following everybody in the group and look forward to meeting you all too 🙂

Next up I wanted to let you know the plan for the week. It’s Thanksgiving holiday and I totally forgot. On top of that I have my DHS meeting too. That means I’m going to try and get the Joker Game review up Wednesday (it’s on track so should be good to go) as well as a new voting round for “K” up Friday. Past that the site is kind of in limbo again. I hate to break my MWF schedule I’ve been trying so hard to keep (again) but it really seems like that’s what I’m going to have to do moving forward. We’ll see though and I’ll be sure to keep you all updated.

That’s it for today, and as always, thanks for reading!
