Blog Carnival: The impact they had on us (Or: Why I still love OreImo)

About two months ago, Foxy Lady Ayame and Neko-kun started a blog carnival to talk about anime which influenced their lives. I thought it was a great idea – you should definitely check out their post as well as the list of other bloggers who have participated in the event. But personally, I found it really hard to come up with something to say about this topic. I feel like I’ve already written quite enough already about the anime titles which have influenced me personally. (Examples: 1, 2, 3)

Then it hit me. It’s not just well-written anime that has an impact on you. In fact, there are plenty of (what I would consider) relatively poor anime that have a special place in my heart. In the end, it honestly doesn’t matter how clever you are or how refined your taste is – the most important thing is what you make of what you watch.

One particular anime has had such an enormous impact on my outlook as an anime fan that I still think about it almost constantly to this day, even when so many others have deemed it trash and moved on with their lives.

This anime is called My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute!

TOP 10 IMOUTOS OF ALL TIME

I did a collaboration post with Josh from Chromatic Aberration Everywhere. Together, we tackled the extremely important question of who the best imoutos are. You can marvel at our fine taste here.

I recommend this blog very strongly, by the way, especially if you enjoy analysis-heavy writing. Josh and I have influenced each other a lot over the past year or so, both as bloggers and as academics. While this is the first time we’ve directly collaborated on a post, it probably won’t be the last! We’ve also been working separately on essays about the nature of fandom and consuming media, so look forward to seeing some of that in the upcoming weeks.

Catch you later, my imoutos and otoutos!

November has been a weird and wonderful month this year. I crapped out a novel and I actually kind of had a good time with it, so here’s a story about all the heartwarming lessons I learned while trying to write an imouto incest fetish story.

By this stage I assume you already know about the ending of OreImo. Doubtless, you have opinions. I am here to tell you that they are incorrect. My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute! is a work of literary genius.
