The Twelve Best Anime of 2012

HyoukaEnd

Unlike last year when it was hard to create a list because I felt there only were a handful of good series, it is now hard due to there being too many good ones to choose from.

I hate lists. Continue reading

Your Blog Sucks – Criticism in the Aniblogosphere

Did he just say…?

This post has taken way too long to get out. I am honestly sorry for that. Luckily, it is out now!

During this month I have sent out a lot of emails to people, asking them to answer a question for a survey regarding criticism in the anime (and manga) blogosphere. Now, I have gathered every reply and put them into this post. See the results after the jump! Continue reading

The Harem of Mine Was Actually an Interrogation Game

Tagged by four persons, I’m boss

There has been a severe lack of actual anime blog posts lately here on Anime Viking. That cannot be good. There are so many things happening at once in the anime blogosphere and the currently airing anime season that you have no idea what to do first. And if you are a weekly blogger, the charm of novelty will be gone if you delay certain posts too long. My post schedule will probably be irregular in the coming weeks, just so you know!

In any case.

A lot of people have been all cute and cuddly to me lately, mentioning me in their posts. At first it seemed like my fabulousness finally had reached out to other bloggers! But no, of course that was not the truth. I have too much personality to have my own personal harem. Instead it was an “Interrogation Game” in which bloggers asks each other questions. Madness I say.

A Simple Break Will Have to Do

It should not be surprise by now, but as you may have noticed, I have not really been an active blogger for about a month now. There are a number of reasons for this, some of them being silly moments of questioning my blogging capabilities, but the main reason is that I simply do not find it fun to write anymore. This, coupled with the fact I also received the very sweet bonus of suddenly finding it hard to write, has really worked against the existence of my blog. When it is neither fun, nor easy, resulting in a lack of motivation, there really is no reason to even force myself (I have tried), as everything that comes out will be half-hearted.

With this in mind, I humbly announce Anime Viking’s first hiatus. 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!
