6th Anniversary of Medieval Otaku

Takunomi 3

What a milestone!  The sixth anniversary of Medieval Otaku!  Most blogs only seem to last for two or three years, and so I’m happy to have dragged myself this far.  It’s really no surprise that most blogs are done after two or three years: the circumstances from which one started have changed by then, and one might want to go on to something different.  I have taken quite a few breaks when my own enthusiasm has flagged.  Somehow, I still want to keep up with this hobby, and for that I can only thank my dedicated readers for all their support.

As we are on the brink of a new season, I just want to briefly list all of the new shows which have caught my eye.  Then, I’ll give a brief program of the kinds of articles to expect in the near future.

Point four will give me plenty enough to do since I’ve been holding out on you guys.  I hope that you will enjoy what is to come.  There’s also a post I want to write for Beneath the Tangles, which you may hope to see sometime soon.

  1. Congrats on 6 years!!


  2. Whoa, six years, huh? Meanwhile, my blog’s around four years right now! And hey, you’re right, a lot changes in a few years, indeed! I went to clean up the tagging of my posts recently, and just looking at the titles of my older posts makes me wonder what I was doing with my life back then, along with feeling thankful to God that I’ve been able to change for the better, hahaha! XD

    Anyway, more strength and worthwhile times to you, dear sir! \(^o^)

    A big congratulations on 6 years, fellow otaku! I see this as a great mark of perseverance, as after almost 2 years myself, many things have changed about my ability to stay active.

    Hope to keep seeing more from you for a long time to come.

    Congratulations, and happy belated birthday! Btw, can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Megalo Box!

    • Thank you! Megalo Box’s first episode is interesting. They borrow some elements from Ashita no Joe, but the anime appears to have a different ethos. Well, we’ll see how it turns out.

    Congratulations!! I cant even imagine being around for 6 years! Megalo Box is sitting in my queue on crunchyroll atm

    Liked by 2 people

    • Thanks! Megalo Box looks very interesting to me since they made it to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Ashita no Joe. So far, I like how they employ an older style of animation and borrow some elements from that classic.
