Hey, Everybody. I just thought I’d take a moment to address my plans for the next couple months. To be specific, I want to talk about December.
Traditionally, I haven’t done anything special for December. For one thing, there aren’t many anime that are about the winter holidays. For another thing, October is horror anime month & January’s reviews always follow some random theme that I want to do whether it’s Hayashibara Megumi month, yuri month, Studio Ghibli month or Magical Girl month. If I gave December some theme or other, I wouldn’t be working on actual requested reviews for three months in close proximity.
If I’m being honest, though, I have always wanted to do something for you guys in December. I’ve always wanted to do something to show my appreciation for all of you who read my reviews, make requests & leave comments. But I could never think of anything besides leaving you all a sincere holiday message and doing as many requests in December as I could. Trouble is, I usually do a lot of requests. So, it comes off as business as usual.
That brings me to this year. I was hit by some inspiration and that’s why this December will feature reviews every Sunday. Not only that, but Sunday’s reviews won’t be covering anime. They’ll be over pretty much whatever you guys want me to review. Live action films, Hollywood animated films, live action TV series, cartoons, comics, graphic novels, books, games & musicals. All those forms of media I don’t normally talk about. The one exception is that I’m still not reviewing porn. Just because the whole idea of porn is to titillate the audience and I doubt most of you reading this want to hear about what does that for me.
So, just request anything you’d like to see reviewed. I’m going to actually encourage you to list as many things as you’d like and to not worry about whether or not you’re repeating something that’s been brought up before. The reason being that I might not be able to find some of this stuff and a longer list increases the likelihood that I will be able to review something you’d like to see me look at. Plus, if a bunch of you all want to see reviews of Space Balls, Doctor Who, Good Omens, X-men Evolution, Secret Six, Sunday in the Park with George or whatever, that kind of tells me what I should prioritise.
So, between now and December I’ll be posting the things that have been suggested every two weeks so that you can comment on what you think of me doing them. I’ll also be posting how many people have requested them. It’s just going to be a way for me to keep all of you updated on how it’s going. If you guys really have a lot of requests, I might even do two extra reviews a week. Yeah, it’s going to be difficult, but this is to show my appreciation and gratitude to all of you. If I can convey how much your support, readership, comments and everything mean to me by doing extra reviews one month a year, it’ll be worth it.
So, leave those review requests in the comments. You can also send it to my e-mail, it’s up in my “About Ktulu” page. Those of you from AFT can leave requests in the usual place.That’s it for the moment, I’ll leave you all with a picture of a dog in a kimono.
