365 Days of Anime Characters 300 Done! Oh Hey! One Year of Blogging Complete!

365 Days of Anime Characters 300 Done! Oh Hey! One Year of Blogging Complete!

So the last time I did a progress report on this was when I hit 100 characters with that silly girl Nagisa. There has been plenty of ups and downs with this little project of mine but it has always remained fun. This time after 300 characters with that awesome manly man Toriko, I figured it was time to give some more thoughts and progress on what has been happening with this project. Things are the same comment wise with the characters but there's always a good 300+ (haha) people viewing each day now which I find pretty amazing. To think I was excited at the beginning when 100 people would view these posts XD

Dio Eraclea is still on top for most comments. Lucky number one I suppose.

I still never wrote a bunch up in advance to post up so I'm still doing these each and every day. They are still very random as well. Generally goes in par with that I've watched recently or what I've noticed others chirping about on twitter. After spring and summer anime finished airing I'd do a character from every show that ended as soon as possible. I went through all the Macross titles and a lot of Gundam ones so far and I'd be sure to post a favourite or hated character from each show in their franchise after viewing. To be honest though, all my macross characters are love. <3

Gundam Hate!

Gundam Love! Harry Ord ended up being lucky 200!








I decided to try character theme weeks, in which I would pick something random and find anime that meet these demands. The first one I did was anime music videos, which were official ones done and released by anime companies. I kicked it off with Clamp and ended it with Daft Punk. I got 2 comments on the Clamp post a whole month later and no comments on the rest. I almost didn't want to do another themed week again after that but ended up doing 3 more. Robots, Androids, and Cyborgs week where I actually wrote 3 of these posts in advance because I took a trip down to Boston. This is the only time I wrote any posts in advance so far. Then I did anime made from RPG's and VN's followed right afterwards. VN week was fun because I got to show case some Key hate. I love hating on Key 😀 Although to be fair I did talk about the ONE Key character that I actually do "like" from the one Key anime I can tolerate. This one is funny to me because most people considered it to be the worst one of all their works. Guess I just LOVE being different from the group!

How does Murasaki not have any comments?!

Keeping along with themes I did some nice posts for Mother's Day and Father's Day picking out the best anime characters that represent mom's and dad's to me. Even though I had already done a character from Hetalia back when it was the Chinese New Year, I couldn't just not have some Hetalia characters for good old Canada Day and Independence Day for the Americans. Hetalia is the only show I have repeated characters from but I think national holidays were a good cause to do so. I'm kind of shocked that no one really mentioned that I repeated a series XD and I'm a little sad that no one wished me a Happy Canada Day since I'm Canadian 😛

Kakashi for Tamerax's Birthday.

The lack of wishing someone a Happy [whatever] Day doesn't just stop at national holidays though. I had 2 guest posts on each of these guys special days. That's right Birthday posts! I got 2 birthday wishes on my Anime Birthday post and my boyfriend got one on his post. I'm sad to say that my other guest post got no comments at all. 🙁

Tamaki Suoh for ThePatches Birthday.

Lately I've been on an obscure anime roll because I just came off watching a lot of older movies and ova's I hadn't gotten around to. I like doing things that aren't so popular because if I can make just one person take an interest in any show, I feel that this project has been a success.

Angel Densetsu is one of the best ova's I've watched in a while. So glad I got my hands on it finally since I had been looking forward to it for quite some time.

If anyone has a request for one of the last 65 spots to be a certain character, please leave a comment and hopefully I'll be able to do it. The only restrictions I have on this is the character can't be from an anime I have already done and I have to have actually seen the anime myself. If I haven't seen an anime for a character you would like to request tell me about it in your comment and if it isn't too long I'll watch it and do your character! (har har har)

Kakugo Hagakure wasn't a requested character but SO many people had been talking about him that week that I just had to pay tribute to him.

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed this progress report. I'm still debating if I want to continue doing these posts again next year. I'll see how I feel closer to the end in December.

Oh yeah! Here's to one year of blogging anime and many more to come I'm sure ^___^ I hope to start doing more fun projects in the future and actually start pumping out those strange opinion posts I have kicking around. I hope my readers keep going up and up 😀

Still catching em all!

    Congrats on your first blogging anniversary! Hopefully, you can survive the two-year blogger survivability mark, since most of the good blogs tend to die after two years.

    Here’s for longevity!

    Congrats on a year of blogging! I’ve enjoyed this series of posts, even if I haven’t always commented on every one of them. (Mostly because you come up with characters from a lot of series I haven’t seen yet!)

    @chikorita157, @Predederv Thanks so much ^_^

    @Baka-Raptor I’ll look forward to that!

    @Shinmaru Yeah I understand that haha. It’s hard to comment on weird obscure stuff and I totally don’t expect people to comment on those at all for the most part hehe. Thankies!
