Bit late in making this, but I’m not really that big on new year’s resolutions.
While Bakuon is very much about motorcycles and the culture surrounding that, it can also easily be viewed as a commentary on hobbies in general, as the conversations that arise are ones we’re all familiar with, and likely have had ourselves.
It’s been over a year since I started this site on a whim, and what an awesome time it’s been. Not that I think the occasion is particularly significant in the grand scheme of things; not even regarding the anime and manga industry and/or related fandoms. But I did manage to publish over one hundred and fifty posts during my first year of blogging.
Ex-blogger extraordinaire ghostlightning wrote a post called ‘Would our anime heroes enjoy anime?’ back in 2008, and it wasn’t until my viewing of Re:Creators that I would give the idea much thought. Though had I read his post way back when, I’d probably have reflected on it a lot more because it’s such a fun and interesting concept. Go read his post if you haven’t already by the way, it’s an interesting and awesome read!
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.
