It’s hard to believe I’m writing my 100th post already. It still feels like I’m only starting out. The Humble Ace blog has been around for about seven months now, and I’m very happy for making it when I did, because it led me to become a part of this amazing community. There’s been an awesome amount of support, interest, and commentary from fellow bloggers, whom I want to thank for their likes, comments, and shares on this journey. Reading and commenting on others’ blogs has been a humbling experience in and of itself, so much so that I kind of wish I had started lurking around blogs before I decided to make one myself.
Here’s a fun little exercise many other ani-bloggers seem to be doing, and have been doing for quite some time now. Thought it’d be interesting to try my hand at one myself, and see if I can make something worth reading out of it (results may vary).
Kamina forgive me, I’ve been feeling a bit unenthusiastic towards anime lately. My feelings towards anime at the moment, after being separated apart from it for only a couple days (and even then I am still reading articles about it) has been a numbing experience for me.
I never really feel equipped to discuss anything in any meaningful way. And despite all the analysis videos I’ve consumed in the past few years, no amount of reading or watching such excellent insights into such things as character and plot analyses, thematic dissections, creator intentions and studio histories, production values, etc. marks a strong enough impression to leave the information readily conscious to mind.
Ex-blogger extraordinaire, ghostlighting, ran a blog called “We Remember Love” with other fellow bloggers at the time (a lot of which were mecha and anime fans alike), and the now infamous Digibro (previously known as “Digital Boy”), from October 2008 to October 2012. If you haven’t read his posts, I recommend that you do, as it some of the best anime-related content I’ve ever read.
Something I’ve grown more concerned over in recent memory (and experienced quite a number of times already) is the sensation of my older feelings and thoughts on works I watched when I was younger being overwritten through revisiting them now that I’m older, and of a different mindset.
Incoming filler post commenting on my inability to articulate my thoughts and feelings regarding certain things, because I lack the comprehension and confidence to do so.
