I could talk about how I’m disappointed with how everything’s gone so far. I could talk about how I’ve stupidly forgotten to post up posts written for Psycho-Pass, EOY and Leviathan. I could lament about the end of an era, or some over-glorified triviality, but I shan’t.
It’s the holiday season. New Year’s Day is around the corner, but before that, we have presents to exchange, and to receive. To keep a post short and sweet, here’s wishing anyone reading this Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year in advance! I’ll be taking a break until 2013, and during that time I’ll be trying to work something out for the future of AOIA and beyond that. In any case, go forth, and engorge yourself on lots of food, or whatever people do to actually celebrate Christmas….?
People sometimes tell lies, imagine a completely different fantasy world, dream about the distant future, or invent a lover’s relationship that only exists inside their heads. This process repeats from the day we are born until the day we die. Forever and ever. It is depressing. It is shameful. But it is dear to us. “
Remember this circlejerk we were so excited for? It’d be just wrong if I didn’t mention the ABT this year.
Also, I seem to have missed out an entire day by accident. Fuck that, orz.
I talk about my dislike for the horror anime, Another. It was quite a terrible experience watching it, especially because it crushed my hopes for it rather prudently.
By the way, enjoy the new intro I spent lots of time working on!
I’ve completely forgotten this year. And all that excitement I had for it last year seems to have faded completely.
It’s probably too late for you if you’re just reading about the 12 Days event right now, but if you’re still interested in participating, all you need to do is write an article every day until Christmas. Or, if you’re feeling creative, follow CyborgCommunist and write one until the 21st to save yourself 4 articles – the world’s going to end anyway, right?
Merry Christmas in advance. May you snag much glorious loot this year.
P.S. Posts for the event will be tagged under 12 Days nonetheless.
*thrashes the old post*
I was supposed to write a “12 hours of anime” on Christmas itself but I spent too much time doing irrelevant things (like drawing the above, playing Sengoku Basara and sleeping) thus, post is postphoned until I get back home from celebrating X’mas. Which should be in approximately 12 hours; perfect for the post eh? Meanwhile, wishing all a Merry Xmas and if you guys are reading this, please do go out, get a life and stop being a recluse at home.
Post after the page break~
Well, it’s been fun in these 12 days. Waking up everyday panicking over what to write only to realize at the end of the day that I didn’t accomplish anything. So I apologize for my incredibly irregular posting but meh, it was fun to do this.
So for the last post for the 12 Days of Anime, I’m going to do something random.
Dates. I like dates. I often remember a lot of them, as though they were special. Like April 7th, the first day I blogged on WordPress, or March 30th, the day where I announced that Anima would also be blogging at AOIA. It all changed from there.
