[OWLS Blog Tour] A Year in Lessons: Looking Back at Blog Tours Past

 

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wanderings NPCs, today I’m bringing you all another super special awesome OWLS post!! If this is your first time here at Nice Job Breaking It Hero, you were probably linked here by Lita Kino, she did a super special awesome Birthday/Blog Tour combo post over on her blog, Lita Kino’s Anime Corner!! If you haven’t read her post yet, I highly suggest you do so, she did a phenomenal job!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I joined OWLS: Otaku Warriors of Liberty and Self-Respect, but here we are with a few days left in 2017 and I am so glad I became a part of this wonderful group! For those of you that are new here and haven’t heard about OWLS, we are a group of bloggers and vloggers that hope to spread a message of acceptance and understanding through thoughtful community activism!

So, in order to spread our message of self acceptance and tolerance, we’ve decided to hold Monthly Blog Tours! During Blog Tours, we each write individual theme posts on our blogs that promote our group’s values, with a bit of an otaku twist. December’s Blog Tour topic is Warmth!!

It’s the season of joy, thankfulness, and love. This month’s topic is “Warmth.” Whether it is spending time with family members during the holiday season or with that special someone during New Year’s Eve, we will be discussing moments in anime and pop culture media that convey a feeling of happiness in our hearts. During times of struggles, we look towards the things that matter to us as a source of strength, hope, and happiness. We hope you enjoy this round of posts and that you, too, will have a wonderful holiday season!

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 14: An Anime that never gets old no matter how many times I watch it

Sometimes you come across an anime that no matter how many times you watch it just never gets old. You know, a show that you can watch five or more times and still find the characters and their stories fresh and exciting.

I love this series, no matter how many times I re-watch this show it never gets old. Even after knowing how everything turns out, I still end up on the edge of my seat at every single time I watch it, because it is just that good! This is one of the few series that I wish was ongoing. So my pick for an anime that never gets old no matter how much I watch it is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 4: My Favorite Female Anime Character

First, Happy 4th of July!! Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get on with the rest of the challenge… Somehow I feel like  Day 3 and 4 should be combined… especially since I have a hard time writing at length on prompts like this. But, what are you gonna do? When I first saw this prompt, there were two leading ladies that first came to mind, two very different, but equally awesome leading ladies who could easily top any list. So, let’s just say that I had a hard time choosing between them. I kind of rectified the situation by using one of them during another day instead since that prompt was a much better fit for her….

So for my pick… this leading lady, lives life to the beat of her own drum. Sure she can be selfish and self serving, but who isn’t? She knows how to look out for number one, and she doesn’t care how many people she has to step over to reach her goals. Plus she ate dog food, how badass is that?! So, My favorite female anime character is…

30 Day Anime Challenge-Day 3: My Favorite Male Anime Character

Okay so unlike the prompt for Day 2, the choice for Day 3 was a no brainer! The minute I read the prompt, this character immediately popped into my head. He is the epitome of cool, from the slick way he walks and talks to the way he handles his ship, this guy is a BAMF! One minute he’s kicking ass and taking names, the next he’s causing massive amounts of property damage. This guy is a boss!

like a boss

This character is one of my all time favorite anime characters, and I don’t see anyone else taking his place anytime soon. He lives life by his own rules, as he crosses the galaxy in search of his next bounty. He hates kids, animals, and women with attitudes… So 3…2…1…Let’s jam, My favorite male anime character is…
