Four Years of Anime Blogging and at a Crossroads


It has been four years since Anime Viking was created. With each passing year it becomes harder and harder to believe that I was once eighteen years old, still in high school and wet behind my years when this blog came to life. Looking through my older texts I realize that I may in fact have actually grown as a person whether I want it or not – the I from today is not the same as I from the past. Change is in itself a frightening aspect of life, but something one must come to accept in order to move forward however difficult it may be at times. The last year in particular has been a turbulent one on a personal level, but I hope and wish to have come out as a stronger person thanks to it.

Similarly, it hasn’t been a kind year to the blog itself. In 2015 it has only been updated once and even before that it was sparsely updated. There is no doubt that Anime Viking can be seen as an inactive, or possibly dead, blog at this point. This is an aspect I have reflected upon a lot lately in regards as to what should become of it.

Three Years of Anime Blogging and Reflections


To think that three years have actually passed since I first started Anime Viking. It has been a long journey coupled with both joy and sadness, but ultimately every second has been worth it. Being able to create something and be recognized for it, while also connecting with readers genuinely caring about you as a person, is a feeling difficult to describe in words.

Anime Viking is (sort of) on Crunchyroll


Have you visited Crunchyroll these last few months and perhaps stumbled upon a news article that seemed awfully familiar? With three posts from Anime Viking now featured on Crunchyroll, I figured it was time to write a short notice about it.

So, long story short: Anime Viking is now (sort of) on Crunchyroll! Continue reading

100,000 Blog Views and an Apology


It has been a while, has it not? It has been roughly one month since I last posted here on Anime Viking and I apologize for that. I will talk more about this after the jump.

To share a little more happy news, I can gladly tell that Anime Viking has reached over 100,000 blog views as of 27th May 2013! This feels like a small, but nice, milestone and shows how long this blog has ventured since it first started. Time sure flies, does it not? Continue reading

Happy 2013 and A Little Notice


First of all, I want to wish you a Happy New Year! Let us hope 2013 will be a good year.

During last month, Dec 2012, I published a lot of posts and I now feel really exhausted. I have never written so much before! I cannot believe some bloggers can keep up this high pace without sacrificing all of their free time (then again, I am a slow writer).

Therefore I will take a little break and be back around Jan 15th and then continue as usual with a new post about every seven to ten days. There might be some other things happening too, but nothing I can guarantee.

There will, however, come a final post on Sword Art Online by Myst and I in the coming days!

Hope you all will have a nice 2013!
