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.
In this third round, I am up against Moe Fundamentalism, Sekijitsu and Listless Ink, all blogs I read from time to time (and recommend you to do the same). The most interesting aspect in this round, is that I find all these three mentioned sites to be bigger names in the anime blogosphere. We have Akira (Moe Fundamentalism) that has also written for Behind The Nihon Review, Yi (Listless Ink) that has blogged since 2007 and the team from Sekijitsu that, in two years, has proven themselves to be a gang of competent writers.
That leaves me, the new guy, fighting three veterans.
So what do I have to offer? Well, being a new guy, I am all fresh and new, providing thoughtful editorials and a will to question and find out about well-established parts in the anime community, as you can read in my four-part series on why people fansub. I am not someone who will succumb to being the nice guy, as some tends to do, so be on the look-out for me.
And, well, that is all. I may be up against three big blogs, but I am not going down without a fight. Bring it on!
Go vote HERE!
Hope you find Anime Viking to be interesting!
If I manage to pass this round, I might do a dance till the next one. No promises though!
