Some Site Announcements with our Summer Schedule and Fresh Catches~
It’s update time as promised to some regulars on our IRC channel and you must have already noticed some things not in their usual place and tweaking od our design. Well, in short, we did receive quite a lot of feedback at the end of second Aniblog Tourney (we couldn’t have asked for more, pun intended), and we decided to work on them. Of course, we were never about looks so the updates touch upon our content as well.
- If you have been an old reader, you should have noticed the changed format of our episodics, which now center on aniblogger thoughts rather than summary. We started this trend last season and trying to get better this season so everyone is really looking forward to your feedback on what you like and don’t.
- Episodics to be less image-heavy but don’t expect us to shed our funny-bone and captions.
- Expect more Editorials and Off-the-wall content.
- Feast your eyes on a tweaked design with less clutter.
- New favicon; see that letter M on the tab of your browser?
- CDN service activation for quicker page load.
- Robust IRC channel (#[email protected]) for various discussions around the hour.
- Better links and easy sidebar navigation.
Summer 2012 Schedule:
The above titles do not include the two-cour Spring titles already covered on Meta Mash (to restart from Monday)
I hope you have noticed two new names in the authors column. Yes, after a year since last hiring, it’s time to fill in the two spaces left behind by Hime and Zabo after they got too busy with RL and studies to continue their aniblogging careers. We would definitely miss them and I’m sure the new blood has to fit into sizable shoes but that is how things are and they are brimming with vigour to showoff their individual flair along with the anibloggers you already know. Please join the Metanorn Team to welcome them on-board:
Waddup peeps. My name is Sushi GoKart. My friends call me Sushi. I write about Anime. I was going to keep my introduction at that but apparently management says it has to be a bit more informative. So here it is. I’ve only been blogging for a short while now but I am excited for my opportunity to work with Metanorn. Most of my work really brings a close lens to Anime and what it can offer to us not just as form of entertainment but as a form of art.
I was born and raised in New York City, New York where I currently live. While it is expensive as hell to live here, it allowed me to be exposed to anime at a very young age. I still remember wondering what the hell Nausica was and being utterly confused as I played it on my VCR. But I enjoyed it and continued to rent Anime tapes from local video rental store. Today I am bit more savvy with my Blu-Rays and streams, thankfully.
When I’m not watching Anime I am usually nerding out to latest hipster music trends or playing Magic the Gathering at my local store. I can say that I am a connoisseur of Mexican beers but that’s just an excuse to go the bar every so often. I love long walks on the beach. When I’m on the train or bus I usually bust out my DS or PSP and play some RPGs. Shin Megami Tensei is hands down my favorite series of games. Did I mention the long walks on the beach? Call me 😉
Hi there! I’m Magus_Killer. I come from the island nation of the Philippines, a.k.a. the Pearl of the Orient. I’ve been lurking and commenting on Metanorn for quite some time now, approximately around the time when Fate/Zero (and no, I do not live on Alimango Island) started airing – and now I’m a new member of the team. Hooray! =)
I’ve been watching anime since I was a kid, with Voltes V, Daimos, and Combattler V being my first entry into the anime/manga fandom. From there on out, my primary genre of interest in anime and manga has always been Science Fiction, with the sub-genre of Mecha. However, I’ve since expanded my horizons and am now watching Romantic Comedy, Slice-of-Life, History, and Fantasy-genre anime. I’ve even dabbled a few times into Shoujou-ai territory i.e., Maria-sama ga Miteru. As long as there’s a good plot and well-written characters, I’m watching it.
When not studying, watching anime and reading manga or WarHammer 40,000 novels, I am most likely playing the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game, whether it’s real-life ranking tournaments on weekends, or on Dueling Network Online. To my present and future readers, please bear with my writing since I’m new to anime blogging, even though I’ve been writing for some quite time now. It’s a new experience for me and I am still trying to unlearn what I’ve learned. I’ll probably get better with time, maybe? Well that’s it. This is Magus_Killer. Nice to meet you and have nice day!
|So, I’m done with updates. Our dear readers and lurkers, do let us know your thoughts on the tweaks and variety of posts we have been dishing out lately. Anything you dis/like and/or feedback is highly welcome. We are almost done with the first impressions of Summer so we are full swing on season coverage along with some special posts as usual. And welcome, Kerry and Sushi who have graduated from being Metanorn commentor and IRC regular respectively to join the Team. Till next time, ja ne~|
