The Anime Blog Awards

I was checking my mail earlier today when I came upon a mail bearing the title “Inaugural Anime Blog Award”. I was perplexed indeed but equally excited because for a moment, I actually thought that I was nominated for some anime blog award. Nonetheless I know my chances are dead zero. Here’s an excerpt of the invite:

Given the exponential growth of the anime blogosphere, the number of quality blogs with insightful opinions and perspectives are ever increasing. Yet a majority of the blogs out there remain isolated, lacking a sense of community and meaningful interaction. The Anime Blog Awards was created in order to bridge that gap by recognising worthy bloggers and their achievements in various fields.

I greatly applaud this move. Mainly because now, anime bloggers felt more appreciated though they may not necessarily got nominated for it. This award serves the unifying purpose among the anime blogger community as well as awarding those outstanding ones among the lot. I wasted no time to register myself and name my nomination list for those notable anime blogs that I’m currently following.

 The Anime Blog Awards

The initiative began on 19th March 2008 and the works are progressing to the promotional and nomination stages. Though the official date of the Anime Blog Awards (ABA) is 1st April, nominations will be carried out since 20th March and continues until 22nd April. Voting will begin on 25th April until 1st June before the final results are out. There are many nomination categories to choose from, so nominate those anime blogs appropriately to its categories. In order to nominate, you must first register to the blog and give out at least 9 nominations for 9 different categories. It’s a little tedious but the rationale is so that everyone takes this award prizing event seriously, not simply nominate and leave.

Well, I already gave my nominations for ABA. Anime bloggers, please pledge your support to this initiative. Also, remember to vote once the nominations are in. Stay tuned.

    One word: inspiring.

    Anyway, have you checked out REAL DRIVE?

    Yeah, I did. When I’ve gone through the Spring 2008 anime listing. My first impression on it is that most of the sci-fi anime I’ve encountered turned out good in the first few episodes but the story tends to get very complicated, if not disorientated, as the story progresses.

    Nonetheless, the real highlight for me for Spring 2008 anime is Code Geass R2. And don’t forget, Gundam 00 season 1 finale is this Saturday. If things go well, the fansubs might get the episode done in less and about 24 hours.

    Hm…Ghost in the shell was pretty ok except for the philosophical inputs along the way. I also just finished Appleseed, it was from the producers of Ghost in the shell I believe. Lots of CG/3D ‘fireworks’ in full HD glory!

    Yay? I still haven’t watched episode 23.
