First of all Happy Easter everyone and I hope you are all enjoying your day off 🙂

This is actually something I am writing completely spontaneously and I don’t really have a plan on what I even want to write so bare with my if I get sidetracked!
The reason why I am writing this (If you didn’t figure from the title of the post), is because today is the day, that I have my WordPress Blog for a whole year!
At this point, I just first of all wanna thank you for those who stuck with me for a long time and even though I don’t update often and if I do in a way too long manner, still read my posts! If you do: YOU ARE AWESOME AND I LOVE YOU! I know I am not the biggest of all bloggers and to be honest, I don’t need to be! I started this, cause I admired people like Gigguk or Arkada doing Videos on Youtube and wanted to be just like them…it didn’t quite work immediatly, but I do think I did improve a lot within the last year!

Though I guess I can’t just leave it at that, but kind of have to say some more…goddamnit it ‘-.-

So well…let’s go with a throwback and just kinda look at what I did back in the days and how my Blog developed!

My first post: The first thing I ever posted on this WordPress Blog, was a Review, it was a Review of the Higurashi spiritual successor Umineko and oh god…rereading that thing, is not a good idea as it is part of my dark past when I still was an absolutely horrible reviewer…if you still want to read it though, here you go: https://korisanime.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/anime-review-umineko-no-naku-koro-ni/
It wasn’t the first thing I ever wrote, but one of the first and the only other ones that I actually wrote before that are not on this Blog for the most part! They are however still to be found on my MAL profile if you are interested. Just as a warning though, they are even worse than this! http://myanimelist.net/profile/korison/reviews
Moving on from that, my second post was my first entry in the tag, that I should be using the most! It was the Seasonal Preview for the Summer Season 2013 (https://korisanime.wordpress.com/2013/07/01/summer-season-2013/) and while my predictions weren’t completely of, they certainly weren’t really good either! It wasn’t really well explained and there was almost no information in it either, but I guess that’s to be expected from someone that only just got started with Blogging 😀 If I compare this with my seasonal outlook for the next season though, that one certainly had a lot more information in it and….actually was way too long…I still don’t think ANYONE actually ended up reading all of this… (https://korisanime.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/fall-season-2013-line-up-staff-and-thoughts/)
Directly after the Summer season started, I immediatly started bursting out First Impressions and there were tons of those…I think I wrote something for basically every sing show I watched back then, before summing it up in one post, where I told you guys, what show was the best so far and what show you should definitely stay away from! OH GOD DAMNIT WAS I WRONG! I actually told people that Danganronpa was the best Anime of the season and that Gatchaman Crowds was too weird to be any good…I can’t do but laugh at that by now…AHAHAHAHAHA! (https://korisanime.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/summer-2013-first-impression/) Comparing that to now, I really don’t put as much content out as I used to…I just am way too lazy to put out any First Impressions…Instead, I now do a ranking of how I liked the shows and tell you in there what exactly is good and what isn’t, though that may not be happening this season…depending on how I feel since I do have a lot of other stuff to do (SORRY!).
After doing all those First Impressions of course I had to continue doing the episodic Reviews and I got sick of that rather quick….I think it took me around 6 weeks, to stop with it as it was way too tiring and I just kept repeating what I said! By now I rarely do any and only, if there’s a big thing to talk about!
While still doing them, there was another thing I started, that I called the “Anime Blog”  (Most original name ever, I know https://korisanime.wordpress.com/2013/08/02/anime-blog-1-introduction-anime-and-manga/) where I just talked about what I have been watching or reading recently and how I liked it! Well for this one I wasn’t even too lazy to do it, but just kind of forgot…well that’s just how I am ‘^^ I was thinking about picking it up again, but since I am on 2 Podcasts by now, where I regularly talk about what I’ve been watching and also tell it to everyone on Twitter all the time, I figured I wouldn’t need to!
After that I have one of the most important posts in my Blog history and that would be my Steins;Gate Review! (https://korisanime.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/anime-review-steinsgate/) While it doesn’t seem to be anything special on first glance and really isn’t the best of my Reviews, but it is special in the way, that it was the first one for my new style of Reviewing! If you look at my first reviews and my current Reviews, it’s obvious that it has changed a lot and that change is what makes my Steins;Gate Review special to me! It was the first one that really took time for me to make and was the first Review, in which I really did go more into depth instead of just saying whether the show was good or bad! I am quite proud of it as the result of a change in style!

Other than that there really isn’t a lot to say…there were some minor changes, but there hasn’t been anything to special! Once again, I just want to thank anyone, that has read my posts and I hope you don’t mind me to continue posting my own biased opinion on the internet 🙂

  1. Well I’m pretty late on this, but congratulations on your first year of blogging! Funny thing is that when I look back on some of my older posts, I’m pretty disappointed with them myself. Not that I’d consider them horrible per say, but I feel like there’s a lot more I could’ve explained on the really early ones and that some series really did deserve more words from me than what they got. I think I’ve got a pretty solid hold on my reviewing style though, and these days I feel like I have a lot more to say for most series, so I guess I’ve improved since I first began blogging. Hopefully both of us will have great things to expect for the future in blogging, and I certainly hope I can post with more consistency now that summer’s finally arrived for me.
