Introducing: the ‘Failure to Launch’ Tag!

Recently I thought up a fun idea for a post, or even a series of posts, that I could do here on the blog. However, I realized that this idea of mine would likely be more fun across more blogs than just my own, and I hope you’ll see why shortly.

Also, it’s been a while since we’ve had a tag post going around with a logo, rules and all of that. We could all use more rules in our lives, especially these days, right?

So here’s the premise of this one:

Many stories that we know and love start off on a slow note, giving us a dose of the main character(s) regular life before introducing a ‘call to action’ that kicks them out of regular life and onto a new path that deviates from the norm.

But what if that call to action never happened?
The story would simply… fail to launch!

Responding to Peer Pressure

I’ll have you know, I don’t respond well to peer pressure.
That’s the truth.

So when RisefromAshes tried to pressure me into responding to the Peer Pressure Tag, I almost didn’t do it. But here we are, because of course, I only jest. I definitely wanted to do this of my own volition.

And of course, thanks for the tag!

Unpopular Anime Opinions Tag

All right, let’s get another tag post crossed off the list.

This one is the Unpopular Opinions Tag, although I feel like my Throwing 8 Overrated Anime Under the Bus post was probably more of an “unpopular opinions” post than this will be.

Let’s give it a whirl though.

Unpopular opinion #1 – sometimes nightcore > the original song.

Sunshine Blogger Award

Been a while since we had this one on the blog.

Normally, I’d write some humble words about this amazing blog of mine and how grateful you should all be for being able to read these words, but this time I’m going to do things a little differently and skip that part. Because I’m very generous. Really, I’m the best when it comes to being humble about these things, let’s be honest.

So I’ll spare you all this time.

I'm going to be honest with you all, I've never read a light novel before. (Anime Light Novel Title Tag)

Welcome to the Anime Light Novel Title Tag Challenge Award.

It’s the tag where we take an anime, and then we proceed to spoil the plot in a long-form title. Devised by Dewbond, it’s quite the tag. Somehow, despite everyone choosing different anime and writing different titles, they all somehow feel the same. What is it about the light novel title that does this?

It's Sunshine Time.

Recently I was nominated yet again for another award, something that we’re no strangers to here at the Umai Yomu Anime Blog. The staff and I get these sort of things so often that we really struggle to keep up at times.

Anyways, you wouldn’t believe it, but this nomination came from Lynn, AKA The Otaku Author. You’ve probably heard of him. He’s kind of a big deal. This is just between you and me, but I heard that Lynn’s dad works for WordPress.

So yeah, when you get a nomination from Lynn, you respond.
