Video Essays Survey [About Anime and Related Content]

Hey there! How’s this week been treating you?

Personally, I’m feeling pretty motivated. I’m thinking of launching a new project: a series of video essays focusing mainly on anime –and maybe other forms of Japanese entertainment in the future

I work a lot in video editing, which is something that I enjoy as much –if not more– as I enjoy writing. So I guess it was only a matter of time until I asked myself: “hey, I write about things I love all the time. Why not make videos of it too?”

So I prepared this short survey (only 8 questions!) that will help me create content people can really enjoy.

Just like with this blog, I want to give the videos a feminist perspective. But I would also like to approach the content outside of that, focusing also in things such as character dynamics, visual components, or in other words, just what makes things work.

I will really appreciate your help!

Puffy AmiYumi: The Iconic and Multifaceted Duo [Yattatachi]

As a child that spend way too much time watching TV, it was no wonder that I learned about many things through cartoon shows. One of those things was Japanese pop music (or J-pop). A genre which I first discovered thanks to the Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi show and the multiple video clips of Puffy’s most recent hits that Cartoon Network often aired.

It was the first time I was exposed to the language too. Even though I couldn’t understand anything, it didn’t matter: I was entranced by them.

Today I’m in my 20s, and Puffy remains one of my favorite artists. Listening to them, I can enjoy their music while fondly remembering the childhood memories they gave me as well.

Origins

Known only as Puffy (パフィ) in Japan, this duo was formed by Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura. But the pair’s path to stardom wasn’t really clear when they started pursuing their careers as musicians. In fact, they didn’t even start together.
