Why are you embarrassed?

Another idea has crossed my mind in a similar vein to the last blog post I wrote about life and how anime stories can alter our perspective / expectations of it.

But this one tackles something else that we often see and experience in life.
And while the idea was inspired by an experience I had here in Japan, the topic itself is far from exclusive to Japan.

There’s something that’s been happening on WordPress for a while now.
A real plague.

One that you may not realize exists, because you don’t know where to look.

Welcome to the Anime Light Novel Title Tag Challenge Award.

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.
