Celebrating the Sunshine Blogger Award!

While it certainly has been a while since the Umai Yomu Anime Blog last received an award, this is certainly not the first time. As you know, this is a critically acclaimed blog – providing all of the best and correct takes on everything anime. Otherwise known as the best blog ever (although I guess some other blogs come close).

The real surprise here is how this blog hasn’t received MORE awards than it already has. Quite the mystery, don’t you think?

The Anime A to Z Awards!

Welcome, one and all, to the Anime A to Z awards!
(Sponsored by EcchiHunter.com – all of your favourite ecchi content, in one place!)

Highlighting many of the titles this challenge had to offer, from unexpected and hidden gems to unique and interesting, being forced to select anime based on the alphabet has allowed for the discovery of many anime I normally would not have watched.

And what better way to commemorate some of these anime but with awards?
In addition to the awards I’ve already given them, of course.

I will be handing out 10 awards across multiple categories, as well as nominating anime for these categories. Yes, this awards post is stacked, and yes, it’s rigged as I am both nominating anime and choosing the winners. I prefer to use the word “guided”, as I guide the awards to the appropriate anime.

Here we go!

Winners get to take home this lovely watermelon!

Rewatch Heaven

You know, lately I feel like I’ve been in anime heaven with all of these rewatches!

So far I’ve hit 6 of the 9 anime on the rewatch list!

There’s Vandread, Haruhi, Date A Live, Clannad, Seitokai no Ichizon, and Ikkitousen.

In addition, there’s also Sekirei, Love Hina, and No Game No Life which I’m also rewatching and posting over on Ecchi Hunter.

Crazy right?

I Tried Out The “New” WordPress Block Editor; Some Thoughts

As the title suggests, I recently tried out the WordPress block editor, otherwise known as Gutenberg. While I know it’s been around for a while now, I figured I may as well write about my experiences with it, as I have since reverted back to the classic editor.

There are aspects that I liked and aspects I disliked about the block editor. If you haven’t tried it out yet, then maybe these points can help inform your decision.

Unofficial 1 Year Blogiversary! A Year Full of Firsts.

One year ago, on May 2nd 2018, the Umai Yomu Anime Blog received it’s first likes and first comments! Despite this blog existing since June 2017, I never realized to use WordPress tags and I hadn’t yet realized the value of interacting with other bloggers. As a result, May 2nd 2018 to me is the unofficial “first day” of this blog.

This makes Creative Differences in Anime the “first” post of this blog, as it was the first one that I realized WordPress tags were a thing, and the comment I received on that post was what spurred me to begin reading and interacting with other blogs in the WordPress community.

It’s pretty amazing to think about how much has happened in the past year for this blog. I originally created it to help pass the time, and I continue it because it brings me a great deal of enjoyment. Anime is more fun when you can write about it, and read about it from other blogs!

And so to celebrate I figured I’d list some of the “firsts” for the Umai Yomu Anime Blog!
