The End of Korra

Real life has really gotten in the way of watching and reviewing anime for me but I just had to take the time to wrap up The Legend of Korra now that the first season is officially over. And in the end, it was okay. Only okay.

The show doesn’t really do anything wrong (except for the romance, but let’s face it, The Last Airbender didn’t do that well either) but it failed to do anything great (story wise, that is; the action and animation were exceptional), which is a real let down because The Last Airbender was all sorts of awesome, and paved an easy road for Korra to launch off of.

all good things come to an end

And for some, earlier than others. As the Aniblog Tourney moves forward, Bokutachi no BLOG is honoured to hold down the fort here in Round Three while others continue to fight in Round Four. (That is to say we lost.) One of the greatest things about this Tourney is the amount of feedback you can get from people, some who would never have visited your blog if not for the tournament; critiques on style, format, visuals, content – all good stuff, and maybe even a compliment here and there. It’s not hard to tell that Team Zero has succumbed to an attack of the Lazies, and it’s really made me rethink things, like ‘Can I fire my entire writing team if they don’t get paid in the first place?’

I’m just kidding. Plus that would be extremely hypocritical of me since I bunk with Lazy on a frequent basis. But I’m eternally grateful to everyone who visits (even by accident, considering some of the search terms that come up in our stats), comments, and/or lurks. Whether you’ve followed us from the years of Brian the Original or are just passing through, we truly appreciate everyone!

that Aniblog Tourney thing…

… is still going on. There was a massive delay to the start of Round Three as the moderators tried to come up with a more secure system of voting. Round Three is also a bit different in that you get two votes to cast among a choice of four competing blogs. Bokutachi no BLOG is currently up against Atarashii Prelude, Loli Salad, and OGIUE MANIAX. If you are planning on voting, make sure you cast both votes in one visit because if you complete one vote for one blog, you won’t be able to vote again for another – or at least that’s what happened to me. (It’s okay: if Bokutachi loses by one vote, I won’t feel bad. Especially since I’m anticipating losing by a whole lot more, haha.)

I have to admit I feel a bit bad about making it this far – there are many other blogs that put in a lot more effort than we do and who are far more consistent. But I’m grateful nonetheless and while I do hope people are discovering new blogs through the Aniblog Tourney, we’ll continue to fight here on our end.

Thanks again to everyone who’s following the Tourney! If nothing else, check out the comments; there’s always some sort of drama going on there…

The Legend of Korra: Episode Eight

Legend of Korra gets more political in Episode Eight touching on some issues surrounding justice, but before that, let’s do a quick recap of Episode Seven since I skipped it: Hiroshi Sato aka Asami’s dad is an Equalist supporter, supplying the radicals with electric gloves à la Stark Industries. As a result of his arrest, Asami, Mako, Bolin, and Pabu move out of the Sato Mansion and onto Air Temple Island with Korra and Tenzin’s family.

A Look at Gaming: I’m on an E3 Podcast: Episode 0: Miyamoto is a Dick


So I know I’m on an unannounced hiatus at the moment (sorry about that) and this post isn’t at all anime-related, but this is something I’ve been excited about doing for an incredibly long time, so I feel I have to plug it.
