Happy New Year 2013!
Truthfully, 2012 had been a tough year, with so many anime and games signifying the end of the world, and even some hints which looks like a prologue to such end emerging out of nowhere. So if you’re reading this post, then congratulations, you just survived the apocalypse! We bested the so-called “End of the World”, we bested our own dreadful fates, so a big applause to all of you.
As I was busy fighting against my own fate last year, I wasn’t able to do much, and I didn’t even planned anything major as of yet. Though some minor plans of mine include:
– Taking down of the Character of the Month. I originally wanted to try it out to see how it goes, but before I knew it, I had already been doing it for a year. It’s way past it’s experimental stages and the result is that, I don’t think making posts at fixed time suits me, as I’m the type who prefers to post in my-pace fashion. So yea, so long Character of the Month section. I’ll keep the 2012 Character of the Month as some sort of remembrance to these posts of mine.
– New planned projects hopefully coming up soon. I have a few ideas, though needs time to flesh them out.
– Hopefully, more collaboration/guest posts
– More posts!
Though in the end, I’m still glad I was able to achieve quite a number of things. First, is the aniblog tourney, it certainly has it’s ups and downs, but I’m glad to have the chance to at least participate in it, everything has a first experience after all. I’m also glad to be able to do some collaboration and guest posts with other anibloggers this year. It’s something I had wanted to do last time and finally managed to did so, it made me feel a step closer to the blogsphere, and aforementioned, I plan to commit myself to more of these, if the chance arises.
Also aside from blogging, I’m planning to skip out most of the anime in the Winter season and will probably be watching only Chihayafuru 2 and Haganai Next. I might watch Minami-ke Tadaima too but that’s a lesser priority. Instead, I will be focusing on watching some old anime in my backlog which certainly requires more attention. If I had commented on some of your blog posts and saying “I’ll check it out soon”, and “I’ll check it out soon” for almost the tenth time, then hopefully I’ll finally be able to take care of that this time.
Other then anime, I’m of cause, will be trying to finish some games in my backlog, which obviously takes quite a lot of time. Actually, I only just finished Final Fantasy XIII (typical, I know) hours ago and will commit myself to a new game soon enough. However, I had also finished Asura’s Wrath, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Bayonetta, and Resonance of Fate in the brief time I owned my PS3. I even finished some PC games like Assassin Creed III and Darksiders II so I would say my gaming side isn’t too shabby.
Visual novels will be less of a focus as of now, as you can see by my sudden lack of VN posts. It couldn’t be help that last time, when I was using my antique 512mb PC (and some other details on the specs that I’m too embarrassed to say out loud), VNs was the only “games” that my PC could actually support, which made me kinda active in VNs back then. Now that I have a better PC, and even a PS3 to boot, my gaming eats up more of my time.
Anyhow, that’s all for now. Happy new year to you all, and once again, congratulations on surviving the judgement day. You all deserves at least that much.
