Now that summer is finally over, it’s the end of September and it’s time to share what I have on my mind for this month. This one will be short since this month has been very quiet and there is no notable posts or posts to share.
With summer coming to an end soon, the fall season is finally here. It’s time to focus on what I plan to watch this season.
Also, I want to share my thoughts on the state of the blog as I am still not happy with where things are going, especially with the number of comments. This list should stay the same, unless there are delays.
Now that Summer is coming to an end soon, it’s time to share my thoughts during the month. As expected, it’s not pretty because it’s 2020 after all.

Now that it’s finally June, the rather desolate spring season thanks to Covid19 is coming to an end.
After the breakdown I had on Twitter, I want to change things up to perhaps improve the content of this blog. Since I usually do some kind of life updates on season previews, I want to do some kind of monthly summary type of posts.
Back in 2013-2015, I shared some kind of updates in a weekly summary of titles I chose not to cover individually. What I tend to do with these monthly posts is to share not only what I am up to and have planned, but also mini editorials on anime-related topics I find interesting during the month but couldn’t write a whole post for. Also, I will also share my picks for this summer, providing that it doesn’t get delayed.
Since I last shared my frustrations, I felt that things were getting a bit better. Sadly, while things got better in terms of comments and such, it didn’t last. Things took a turn for the worst since the start of this year.
With Coronavirus outbreaks in Japan delaying some anime productions with more on the day, this does give me a lot of anxieties of the future of this blog. Not only that, the lack of comments on my recent posts, including my editorials from last month, which are hurting my motivation to blog. In addition, the lack of followers are becoming a sticking point too. What troubles me are the few who I follow are unfollowing me, which is a huge betrayal. I don’t know exactly what I am doing wrong since I do not post anything controversial.
Instead of keeping my frustrations in, I want to share them. Also I want to receive feedback from the readers on what areas to improve the engagement on this blog before I completely burn myself out. Hear me out.

Believe it or not, I have been so busy between the move, adjusting to my new place and new job that I forgot that my blog turned 11 years old (started February 17, 2009). This makes me wonder how long I have been doing this for. By now, a good amount of people who were blogging about anime back when I started in 2009 have pretty much moved on. With that, I would like to reflect on the last year of blogging and focus on the future.
As expected, I hoped that in 2019 things will finally turn around. As expected, I finally got my wish. Also, we will take a look back at the year in review. I know this is a bit early, but I still have two to three posts left before the year ends.
