Gooood morning my pandas! It is currently 11:00 am in the lovely state of Oregon and I am ready to go!!!
Y’all are probably wondering what the heck I’m up to huh? Well I’ll tell you! Raistlin and I were having a little chat the other day and we came up with a pretty extensive project…but we need YOUR help! As most of you guys in the blogging community know the Crunchyroll Anime Awards for 2017 were pretty fucking garbage. To say I was disappointed by the results is an understatement.
Some time ago Raistlin and I thought, “Hey…why not make an awards panel of our own?” We played around with the idea for a bit after the results for the Crunchyroll Awards made an appearance but I didn’t think anything of it…UNTIL NOW.
Now I am reaching out to you my pandas! We are holding a so called “casting call” for anyone who would like to be a judge in this years first ever WordPress Anime Awards! (Still working on a more lucrative title…but we’ll go with this for now XD). Yes! You heard that right! We are looking for any blogger or anime fan (that has some form of social media) who would like to be apart of our judging panel. We are open to any and everyone who wants to be apart of this endeavor. I know the end of the year is still a ways off but I want to get the ball rolling since it will probably take some time to get everything up and running.
With that said…if you were salty (much like myself) about the results of the 2017 Crunchyroll Anime Awards now is your chance to create a better opportunity for shows that might not get the shot they rightfully deserve. I want this to be all inclusive for every anime that has premiered (and will premier) in 2018! If you are interested in being a judge (probably around November/December time) please shoot me a personal DM over on my Twitter at: https://twitter.com/paperpandabears or leave me a comment down below so I can add you to the list. Also if you guys could share this blog post over on Twitter or re-blog it on WordPress I would be FOREVER grateful! I want as many people to see this as possible!!!
I have to have a more in-depth talk with Raistlin about further details, but we will keep you guys posted in the near future. Annnnd if you don’t want to be a judge but would like to help out with this project in any way, shape, or form we could always use the extra help! Feel free to let me know. Go forth my pandas and share this a billion times (because we all know my blog following is pretty small compared to everyone else’s lololz)! 😛
(Edit: ALL JUDGING POSITIONS HAVE BEEN FILLED! But if you would still like to help in some way feel free to let me know)
