2017 in Review

2017 is over, so it’s time for a little reflection.

First of all, I decided to move from self-hosted to wordpress.com, mostly because I’m letting go of some projects, which means I won’t really need all the benefits of wordpress.org. I’m mentioning this to let you guys know that I’m still in the process of moving, and it’s going to take a couple of days before all the links are normal again.

Now, outside of Otaku, she wrote, this year I wrote for Anime Feminist and Yattatachi. I’m very glad that I did, because both sites have very warm communities that I’m now happy to be a part of. The Anime Feminist team it’s formed by writers whose work I really admire, and working with some of them as my editors were formative experiences.

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!
