AnimeShinbun August 2015 Contests

18d 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

52d 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

88d 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

118d 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...

AnimeShinbun April 2015 Contests

147d 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...

AnimeShinbun March 2015 Contests

178d 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

207d 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 Christmas Creative Contest 2014

259d 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 2014

259d ago ... Hi everyone and welcome to our 12 Days of Christmas Competition. =) Here's how things are going to work. Rather than giving you a new question a day as we did last year, 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 2014 anime series which have streamed leg...

AnimeShinbun 2014 Holiday Season Contests

264d 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 did last year, 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. And to mak...

AnimeShinbun November 2014 Contests

299d ago ... Hi everyone, Not long now until our annual Christmas contests. =) How did you like the format we ran last year with the 12 Days? Check my past blogs if you weren't around back then. ;) We'll probably be mixing it up again a bit this year, based on your feedback, so please let us know if you have any particular suggestions for how you'd like to see things go this time around. I've had a fe...

AnimeShinbun October 2014 Contests

328d ago ... Hi everyone, I've had a few people who got caught up by some issues such as approving things from their own website tell me that they weren't aware of the issue, so if you haven't already read the blog post I made 2 months back, "On submissions, approvals, and comments", please do so now. It includes important information regarding rules changes and updates here on AnimeShinbun. These issues...

AnimeShinbun September 2014 Contests

360d ago ... Hi everyone, If you haven't already read the blog post I made last month, "On submissions, approvals, and comments", please do so now. It includes important information regarding rules changes and updates here on AnimeShinbun. Things like getting caught in self-approving stories from your own website can and will impact on your eligibility to win prizes. The blog post is still on the front p...

On submissions, approvals, and comments

375d ago ... Two months ago, in my regular contest blog, I posted about the issue of self-approvals, and gave some guidelines for how we would handle these. With the continuing issues around submissions and approvals over the past few months, I thought it was about time I gave everyone a bit more clarity on this and other issues for submissions and approvals that have been causing a few problems. -------...

AnimeShinbun August 2014 Contests

390d ago ... Hi everyone, After all these years of waiting, we finally have new Sailor Moon! How's everyone enjoying the new series thusfar? Has it lived up to your expectations? I'm going to be making a fairly substantial blog post later this week regarding submission and approval rules, expanding further on things I said during the June contest update. I hope all of our loyal contributors will read...

AnimeShinbun July 2014 Contests

422d ago ... Hi everyone, Only a few days until the new Sailor Moon series comes out. Us old folk have been waiting a long time for this. =) Here's hoping it lives up to the hopes and expectations that we've been building for more than a decade. Apologies to the winners of the May contests, who apparently still haven't received their prizes. I'm expecting those should be going out to you shortly. L...

AnimeShinbun June 2014 Update & Contests

451d ago ... Hi everyone. Usually I try to make these posts a bit lighthearted, but there's something I need to discuss with you all briefly. Last month, a few people mentioned that they were finding it took a while for their stories to get approved. Over the past month, we've been keeping a fairly close eye on story approvals to get a better sense of how long it's taking articles to go through, but a...

AnimeShinbun May 2014 Contests

484d ago ... It's that time once again. =) How's the new anime season been treating everyone? I hope you've all been able to find a few new series to whet your appetite. Got any recommendations for what the rest of us should be watching? LOYAL READER LOTTERY: When you visit AnimeShinbun at least once during every 24 hour period during the month, you'll gain an entry into our Loyal Reader Lottery! If you...
