Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Dec. 11th to Dec. 17th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This week has kind of been a blur, now that the holidays are on the horizon… So, I’ve been trying to catch up on a few things before I go home for the holidays! But, the universe seems to be conspiring against me going home for Christmas, because it’s super hard to get a ticket!

I might have to bike home or bust!

December 12th marked the big reveal for the new project I have been hinting about for awhile now!! OWLS, Otaku Warriors for Liberty and Self-Respect is a group of WordPress Bloggers and Vloggers, who hope to spread love an acceptance in order to create a sense of unity and to create a space for people to feel comfortable being who they are!! If you are interested in joining or wish to learn more about us, please feel free to reach out to me or any of the other members or just click, HERE! On a side note, my job FINALLY paid me… but, I can’t get the money until sometime next week. -_-

Here we are again at the end of another Recap Post, where I highlight four interesting posts from other bloggers that showed up on my Reader this past week…

Friday’s Feature – Beneath the Squeals What Is Driving Yuri On Ice Fans?This post comes from Karandi from 100 Word Anime! Yuri on Ice is the anime series that has taken the anime community by storm, since it’s debut a few months ago. Whether you love it or hate it you have to admit that there is a certain charm to the show that keeps fans watching week after week. But, what is it about this show that has so enraptured viewers, well, Karandi answers that and more in this fantastic Friday Feature!! 

My Love of Shoujo is Unashamed, Unironic and UnapologeticThis post comes from trashonthecurb from Gross WeeabooI have a bit of a love hate relationship with shojo romance… On one hand I can’t help but love the cheesy cliche fluff, it makes my cold icy heart go doki doki, then there’s the side that finds everything about them silly and unbelievable…. But, that doesn’t stop me from reading them from time to time. In this short, fun rant, this blogger recounts her love of shojo romances!!

What Does Drama/Anime/Manga Mean to You?– This post comes from Animetai from AnimetaiI’ve said it before, but I absolutely love anime origin posts and discussion posts, and this one has both!! In this short relatable post, Animetai recounts their first experiences with anime, manga, and drama! But, that’s not all,they also challenge readers to share their own experiences with all three! So definitely stop by and share your wonderful stories with this fantastic blogger!!

Miscommunication in Manga and AnimeThis post comes from Remyfool from The Lily Garden! And, closing out this week’s Blogger Spotlight is a fabulous post from my buddy Remyfool, about the lack of communication in anime and manga! We’ve all seen it unfold in anime/manga, two characters have an argument about something or another that could easily have been solved with a simple explanation or a few more lines of dialogue. But, instead the misunderstanding isn’t cleared up and what follows is a long drawn out drama… Well, in this wonderful post, Remy looks at the positive and negative aspects of miscommunication, with the help of Flip Flappers and Saki!!


So here we are at the end of this week’s post! Be sure to check out some of the bloggers from this week’s Weekly Blogger Spotlight, and drop them a line! Strike up a conversation or make a new friend! Don’t be shy get out there and mingle! 😉 Also, don’t worry if your post wasn’t featured in this week’s post, keep writing and keep posting! I’ll keep my eye out!

See something in your Reader this week that you wanna share? Tell me what you think about my post? Anything you want to see more of? Less of? Have an idea for a post? Shoot me a line in the comments section  or Ask Me anonymously on my Tumblr! Don’t be shy, I swear I don’t bite! I appreciate input and discussions from my readers so let your voice be heard…and finally, as always Thank You for reading!

  1. Wow, thanks for the shout-outs, pokesenpai90!

    I’m impressed that you’re already planning posts for the new year yet you’re also planning on giving us a few more reviews. What a hard worker!

    Speaking of work, I’m sorry to hear your work place isn’t being awesome when it comes to paying you ;_;

    Not being able to find a plane ticket is also a bummer. This shouldn’t be happening to you!

    Hang in there! (。゚っ´Д`゚)。っ

    1. I’m gonna see if I can balance both, one of the new series is almost done, but the other needs more love and attention lol

      Yeah, they have been like this since I started and I’m starting to get really ticked off… they actually sent my pay to the wrong bank!!! I was so mad when they told me!

        That company of yours, though…sending your dough to the wrong bank is unbelievable! I’m glad you finally got your money, though. Just in time for the holidays! Hooray!
