If you have read the Sword Art Online posts you may have noticed there being someone called Myst writing together with me. He is the writer of the anime blog Through the Frozen Glass and a great guy you should totally follow. I mean, just the thing that he lowers himself to blog Sword Art Online together with me says something about how nice he is! Continue reading

Aniblog Tourney 2012 – Round 3 – vs. Veterans (Now With 100% More Drawings)

Anime Viking vs. The World.

Woah woah woah, I actually made it to the third round in the Aniblog Tourney. That is, what I would call, quite a feat. A rather big feat too, to be frank, considering that I am new in the anime blogosphere, only reaching six months around  last month. It is hard to say if it was thanks to my posts or popularity, but whatever the case, it is now time for the serious business. Continue reading

Aniblog Tourney 2012 – Round 1 – vs. Clan Rain (Now With 100% More Singing)

Anime Viking.

It is time for my first match in the Aniblog Tourney 2012, a tourney which I am sure you have heard about by now. If not, just check out this post!

When it comes to this tourney, a lot of people humbly proclaim that they do not have any chance of winning or that they are not interested in it at all. While I can understand this way of thinking, it does not mean I fully agree with it. Even if you believe you will not win, you should still do your best! Fight for it! Ganbatte! In other words, this means I will fight till the bitter end. Will I have fun while doing so? Dang fun if you ask me. I am sure everyone who participates in the tourney also enjoys it. Some might just not want to come off as too serious, as they believe they lose respect or something like that. Do not ask me, ask them! Continue reading

Aniblog Tourney 2012 Is Live! (And the Marvelous Misadventures of Marow)

That banner was so huge that my blog made it super small, so here, have a man and his pink fish instead.

This is more of a reminder to those of you who have forgotten, or even more importantly, to those of you who have not heard of this before! The Aniblog Tourney 2012 has now started and you can find the official website (or blog, if you want to be correct) HERE. Go and vote as if your life depended on it! And if you wonder what this is about, but are too lazy to check out the website, here is a quick summary:

The Aniblog Tourney is a tournament in which anime blogs battle every day to claim their rightful places, all wanting to the very best like no one ever was. The reason for this is so we do not have to travel across the Internet, searching far and wide after new blogs to read. Because as we all know: we gotta read ‘em all!

Poll – Question to Those of You Who Use Anime Nano

This will be kept rather short, as it is more of a curious question on my part than an actual post. So do not get your hopes up!

But before we get to that, I have something big to announce! The bracket in the Aniblog Tourney 2012 has now been revealed! Quick summary if you have missed the commotion: the Aniblog Tourney is a tournament in which anime blogs battle every day to claim their rightful places, all wanting to the very best like no one ever was. The reason for this is so we do not have to travel across the Internet, searching far and wide after new blogs to read. Because as we all know: we gotta read ‘em all! All this crazy stuff will begin on the 15th April, which is soon. Make sure to keep an eye out for this, because the more voters, the more fun!

In any case, back to the original intent of this post. A lot of people claim only anime bloggers use the anime blog indexer Anime Nano, something I do not agree with, as I myself used it before I became a blogger. So, being the curious person I am, I have decided to do a fancy poll! The first one on the blog, at that! It will be up for a week (7 days)! Please vote seriously and do use the comment section too, as that is an even safer way to make sure the votes are not skewed.

That’s all Folks!
