Holiday Season Contests Extended to End of January

22d ago ... Hi everyone, Hope you're all having a great New Year. The new anime season is upon us, and I'm sure you've already identified a few early faves. In my case though, it's not such a great new year. My house flooded, and as you can imagine, that's made things a bit difficult here. With so many of you having switched over to the new beta theme already, we know a lot of you may have missed...

AnimeShinbun Christmas Creative Contest 2015

55d ago ... Our Christmas Creative Contest involves challenges of creativity rather than challenges of artistic skill. We'll be judging you primarily based on your ideas, so don't worry if you can't draw or write well, you can still score well with the judges. Submitting something so bad it's good, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians style, is a perfectly valid strategy for this competition. ;) So long as yo...

AnimeShinbun 12 Days of Christmas Trivia 2015

55d ago ... Hi everyone and welcome to our 12 Days of Christmas Trivia. =) Here's how things are going to work. Rather than giving you a new question a day as we have in some past years, I'm going to give you all 12 questions in one big lump, to make sure you've all got time to hunt down the answers. For all of the questions this year, we're specifically asking about 2015 anime series which have streame...

AnimeShinbun 2015 Holiday Season Contests

58d ago ... Hi everyone! 'tis the season for giving, and we've got a stack of prizes to give away for the holiday season this year. On December 12th, we'll be starting our 12 Days of Christmas Trivia competition. Rather than giving you a new question a day as we have in some past years, I'm going to give you all 12 questions in one big lump, to make sure you've all got time to hunt down the answers....

AnimeShinbun November 2015 Contests

90d ago ... Hi everyone, I hope the last few weeks have been treating you all well. Or at least better than me at any rate. We've been having nasty electrical storms practically every day here for the past couple of weeks, so it's made it difficult for me to watch streaming anime. What's the point of a Crunchyroll sub when you can't even get to watch something until weeks after it's out anyway? ^^;;...

Regarding submissions and approvals

111d ago ... Last year, I posted a blog entitled "On submissions, approvals, and comments". You can read that blog here. http://animeshinbun.com/user/blogpost/archaic/529677 That blog has been linked every month in every contest blog, with a message telling people that they should read it, so at this point there's really no excuse for not having seen it. What I want to draw everyone's attention to a...

AnimeShinbun October 2015 Contests

119d ago ... Hi everyone, Apologies this is going up a little late. Just gotten back from a trip I took, where the internet access wasn't anywhere near what I was promised. Oh well. At least this has given me the time to do the sums and figure out who gets the prizes. ^^;; Thank you all for your feedback last month in regards to our contests. We're going to be mulling things over a bit before we come...

AnimeShinbun September 2015 Contests

153d ago ... Hi everyone, Wow, is it this late in the year already? Only a month or so to go until the start of the final anime season for the year. Got your eyes on anything yet? Just a quick notice for the July winners. Due to the lateness of that winners announcement, those payments have been a little delayed, and will probably go out at the same time the August winners go out in a bit over a week...

AnimeShinbun August 2015 Contests

179d ago ... Hi everyone, Sorry this is coming so late this month. I hope you've been having a better time than I have these past few weeks. Between coming down with the flu, concerns that I might have been exposed to measles, surgery to remove wisdom teeth, and complications from said surgery that have kept me in bed doped up with painkillers, I certainly haven't been having a great time. You'd think th...

AnimeShinbun July 2015 Contests

214d ago ... Hi everyone, Holy heck, has the new anime season started already? Where has the time gone. Hope you've all found something to watch over the next few months. If not, now's the time to go out there and discover something new! Sorry for running a little late on updating the contest post this month. On the plus side, this means I've had the time to run the numbers and get all our contest win...

AnimeShinbun June 2015 Contests

250d ago ... Hi everyone, Bit of a public service announcement this month. If you're one of the many out there who've been using the Hola Unblocker to access US Streaming websites so that you can legally access anime that's otherwise not available in your country (understandably so, if you're in one of those countries poorly served by Crunchyroll), you'd best look at other options. I'll let you Google it...

AnimeShinbun May 2015 Contests

280d ago ... Hi everyone, Hard to believe we're already more than a third of the way through the year, isn't it? Where has the time gone? Hope the new spring season at least is meeting all your expectations. My wife and I have both been enjoying Ore Monogatari (a.k.a. "My Love Story") lately. It's a shoujo love story with a male lead, and it's probably one of the most heartwarming anime we've seen in a l...

Anime are Anime and Cartoons are Cartoons.

304d ago ... Some have gotten used to this and some are still annoyed, so that’s why I thought if I could weed out some of these misconceptions about the Anime Culture. For people who love the anime culture, it’s really disappointing when your friends or family cannot seem to grasp the concept of ‘Anime’ at all. When I discuss about anime with a friend of mine (who’s also into it) or when I’m watching it in...

AnimeShinbun April 2015 Contests

309d ago ... Hi everyone, The Spring anime season is almost upon us. Already decided what you're going to be watching for the next 3 months? Or waiting to see how the first few episodes go before you make your decision? Just a reminder that if you haven't already read the blog post I made about these things last year, "On submissions, approvals, and comments", you should really go do that. It includes...

Letter from Cat

310d ago ... Dear members of N4G, 11x2, AnimeShinbun, FilmWatch and Techspy; I have decided that my time with HAVAmedia has come to an end, and so April will be my last month with all of you. Christopher will be assuming many of my old duties. This is not a decision made in haste, but one that I think is best for HAVA, my family, and me. Simply, I'm needed elsewhere. :) All the best, Cat

Hot Topic

330d ago ... This is a re-post from a blog I wrote for 11x2, but I think you may find it useful! -Cat ___________________ I struggled with this. What would be the most truly cringe-worthy title for this blog? I hope you're satisfied. There have been a few earnest inquiries about submissions and their heat lately, so I wanted to cover a few things. First, how does the heat algorithm work: a. uniq...

AnimeShinbun March 2015 Contests

340d ago ... Hi everyone, Hard to believe we're already so far through the current anime season, isn't it? Time seems to have just flown by. Found something good to watch this season, I hope? If you haven't, now's probably the time to go through your backlogs. Why not explore some of the older anime series that are available on the big streaming sites? There's plenty of old classics out there that deserv...

AnimeShinbun February 2015 Contests

369d ago ... Hi everyone, Hope you're all enjoying the new year so far. Found something good to watch this season, I hope? If not, then hopefully something from the AnimeShinbun awards we completed voting for at the end of last month might catch your interest. ;) I was going to announce the results of those today, but I'll have to hold off there briefly...simply because there's a 3 way tie for 2 categori...

AnimeShinbun Awards - Voting Open until Feb 1st

384d ago ... Voting is now open until February 1st for the AnimeShinbun Awards. Everyone who submits a vote for the awards will be put into a raffle for one of two $50 US Amazon Gift Cards. Vote should be posted here in reply to this blog post, NOT PMed. You must submit a vote for every category to be in the draw to receive the gift card.
