Back to Blog
Hey all! Today I'm going to be looking at the year in review in 2019, looking back at some of my favourate moments, giving some of my awards, and seeing what's next.
Personal Favourite blog post by me - The J-pop Experience
For as much as I love my post on creativity, the J-pop experience was the most fun because I had i was able to share something that I love and hopefully expand peoples horizons!
Favourite Blog post from another website - "Let's Respect each other's tastes" by MoeGamer
Pete's has some really good one shot articles, and this was a good read because it talked about how reviews have a lot of bais when it comes to reviews of anime styled games, plus it gives some good life lessons for all.
Favorite Song of 2018 - Bamkucain End by E ve
This was honestly a very hard choice because there has been a lot of great music in 2019 from the J-Pop side of things. However, I think this song is much more flowing from Eve. It's also differently structured compared to other E ve songs, and that gives it more appeal to me.
Favorite Music Video of the Year - Utena by Reol
Reol's videos have all been Crazy, but I like this one in particular becuase it really suits the song, and it appeals to my Japanese Style of Crazy.
Show of the Year - Kamen Rider Zi-O
The end of heisei Era of Kamen Rider brought us this great show, celebrating the past and present, and sometimes even it's future. I can't wait to see the movie because it looks very good! For now, thank you Zi-O. I won't be an anime of the year because I haven't see any anime that came out in 2019 besides The Promised Neverland, and I didn't finish it.
Game(s) of the year - Kingdom Hearts III/Wings of Glass
I have for this game for a while now, and it really delivered on all it's promises. Plus there is more to come in the future.
My thoughts on 2019
2019 was a painful year, but was also fun! I had a lot stress due to exams and some emotional issues that are now sorted. I have a weird thing with me where my second half of the year is mostly a breakthrough and Uni has been that for me, it's been really fun getting to know people, and I just love the general atmosphere there, it's really nice to be in, it's also nice to know I don't have do exams again for at least another 3 years. I also learned loss and real heartbreak this, both of which I hope make me stronger. And I welcomed some people back into my life, people who I am thankful for.
As for 2020, the goal is to get a job and start funding this website proper. Uni is fun, but I need start performing a balancing act if I'm going go anywhere in life. I also have plans for this blog, including starting Fairy Tail, which will probably be a long running series of blogs for me. I also have some game stuff and Kamen Rider content in the works. Please look forward to it!
I also may start a Patron so I can become self-funded within this field, that's pretty much my dream at the moment. To be free to create self funded content for everyone, not being held back by anything.
But for now, I am taking a Christmas break. This way I can work on content without too much strain. That and gaining all the weight I've lost by eating lots and lots of food.
But for now, thanks for reading, and I will see you in 2020.
