Well July has come to an end and so I now have the pleasure of sharing some of the amazing blog posts that came out in May. I once again want to thank Jon Spencer for starting the showcase.
To those who don’t know about the showcase the goals are to:
- Give exposure to both the host & creators who submit content to the showcase.
- Highlight a wide variety of content including written word, art, video, audio, etc…
- Allow for all creators, regardless of skill or current recognition, to participate and share their creations.
- Encourage involvement from creators across all platforms.
- Offer a fun and interactive way for people to discover new and interesting creations.
- Inspire growth and exploration for both the host and creators.
This was such a wonderful idea and I know a lot of us have had fun this year taking part in and following the showcase. Keep an eye out for the next showcase which will be hosted by Moyatori over on the Moyatorium.
Now to the posts. There were 26 submissions this month (though if I missed some I apologise but twitter was having fun disappearing tweets at times and I had a fairly rough month as well). Here are 8 fantastic posts that were shared during the month.
01. First up we have this excellent post from Dale: Dealing With Depression Using Dark Souls. It’s a fairly personal post from Dale though it does come with a warning that this is a personal experience and isn’t intended to reflect all who are suffering from depression.
02. A Nerdy Perspective shared their review of Watamote. They look at what the series did and what it failed to do and overall it is one of the more balanced reviews I’ve ever read of this series.
03. Kawaii Paper Pandas shares a post about ReCreators and this one takes a deep dive and looks at Magane as a villain. It’s a pleasure to read and the passion for the series is absolutely clear with every word.
04. Ano.Nora looks at the subbed vs dubbed debate with a fairly poetic post that muses about the constant battle for dominance and the reason why ultimately it is a fairly silly argument to have. Quite the fun read.
05. Satired of Anime shares yet another mock news story about the going’s on in the anime world and this one really made me smile:
While it is a short article, there’s something to be said for Satired of Anime’s blog that regularly puts out great content in bite size chunks that really manage to hit their target.
06. Biblionyan shared a book review of A Place Called Hiroshima. There’s some careful attention to detail in the review and you really get a feel for the content while reading it. A great post to visit for book lovers.
07. Hinode Reviews has done some great posts on the Ancient Magus’ Bride and their focus on the various fae in some of their articles has been really fantastic to read. This post is conveniently not only a great read but also links to their other fantastic articles in this series so be sure to check them all out. There is clearly a lot of time and love put into these posts.
08. Ya Boy Jack over on the AniWriter shares a review of Wandering Son and this post really brings home the importance of sharing a wide variety of stories. Once again, there is so much passion coming through in the post and it is just a joy to read.
And here are some more truly fantastic submissions. I had way too much fun reading these and I would have loved to have just featured them all, as well as all the ones I didn’t link to, but apparently as the host I’m meant to choose some to highlight, not to mention, time constraints and all that.
01. Mel Interview Pervy – Mel From Mel.
02. If You Like… You Might Like… From Rose.
03. Chihayafuru Season Review From Scott.
04. 5 Anime I Probably Cried Too Much Over While Watching From The Spooky Redhead
05. Devilman Crybaby Anime Review From Matthew
06. Skip Full Metal Panic? You’re Missing Out Mate From Lita Kino
07. The Real Life Camping Grounds and a Mystery Lake From The Infinite Zenith
That’s it from me and the June edition of Jon’s Creator Showcase but as I said, keep an eye out for the announcement of the next one and be sure to get your submissions to Moyatori.
Thanks for reading.
