So I have wanted to do this for a long time really, inspired by The Animanachronism’s list of his favorite blog posts on his MAL profile. I am going to compile a lost of my favorite posts that I’ve done. This post title is because for those who weren’t around then, this blog was called ‘Digital Boy’s Anime Bloggin’ until December 07 however the title was never actually visible. Unless you clicked the about page or saw the name on other people’s blogrolls, there was no way of finding out where the fuck you were.
So, here are my favorite posts by myself, chronologically:
1. Massugu Go! – A post detailing how important the endings of Hitohira and Manabi Straight were to me and comparing them. My first time being really proud of a post. Further reading in A Desolation Song.
2. Just A 21st Century Digital Boy – An interesting full-on perspective of my own anime fandom at the time. Seeing how this was part of the foundation for how things became and what things have changed gives me chills.
3. GAINAX Theory – Good is Good? – I come to terms with the fact that studio DOES matter. I didn’t even remember that I had this conflict.
4. Perfection Versus Brilliance – Interesting outlook?
5. Oh Dear God Why Did it Have to be Anime?! – I can’t say I like how sporadic and long this post is, but it definitely is something. Very something. I think.
6. Director Worship – This isn’t really a post but it’s still fuckwin.
— THE LISTMANIA SERIES
1. Video Killed the Radio Star – My top 50 op/ed videos. Not up to date but still fun.
2. Using Star-Crossed Lovers as a Blanket Term for a 2d-Complex – My top 100 characters, very out of date.
3. Viva Anison! – List of my favorite op and ed songs. RIDICULOUSLY HUGE.
