CALLING ALL ANIME BLOGGERS AND FANS! WE WANT YOU! Click this post for more details…because you know you want to :P

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)

    I love collab posts, but you would probably be very surprised that I haven’t done many of them. Weird isn’t it? But….no worries, now that I am finally back from my hiatus, I’m working on some pretty exciting ones. This one though, takes things to a new level and I am very excited about it to say the least. I was having a very interesting discussion with Ayano from KawaiPaperpandas and as a result well….I will let Ayano do the talking here, as she can explain it even better than I can. So….I can’t wait to see how this is all going to work out: but in short: This is going to be so much fun!! Hopefully you are all as excited about it as both Ayano and I am 😊

  2. Well, if Raistlin is in, then I guess I can tag along, and help rig the ballots or something. Carry boxes, maybe? Lose a few? I dunno. I may not understand how voting works.

    I am good at judging others, though. Usually do it silently. Or with images. Ya know, the way ya do.

    Anyway, I’m happy to help out if I can. Well, not happy. I’m never happy. Content, I suppose. Begrudging? Is that the word? I don’t think that’s the word.

    First impressions? Nailed it.

    1. Hahaha gotta love those good ol’ first impressions! Luckily most of the voting is done through electronic polling, so getting that set up should be pretty easy peasy. I think we will just need helping with gathering everyone up and deciding on categories.

    2. Haha…I knew it! You did not disappoint with this comment my friend…and as far as first impressions go, you did a great job: I’m pretty sure Ayano could not agree more.
      Fantastic that you want to help with this…as for the judging, well, that won’t be a problem: It’s not like we are going to enter the Abyss and challenge Queen Takhisis herself right? 😊😊

      1. Oh sorry about that. I guess a lot of people kind of didn’t get the memo. The website is jestermonocle.wordpress.com now. It’s been changed. This actually explains quite a bit.

  3. Hey! We’d love to be judges! It sounds super fun! We’re familiar with a podcast that also does yearly anime rewards but a chance to also judge? Incredible! From one weeby Oregonian to another, way to be amazing as WordPress’s very first anime awards!

  4. Nah, I don’t think so because this is a great idea and I wanna to be at the party too. But, there is no one show that I follow for this season. Honestly, Crunchyroll is a joke and I don’t know what were they thinking. Let me think if I can participate to this but really want into. Thank you for sharing your ideas. 🙂

  5. I’d like to help in some way, but the problem is that I don’t really watch seasonal anime. I post reviews of individual series. Is there anything else I could help with?

  6. Sounds interesting. I’ve no idea how busy I’ll be by the end of the year and I watch about 5 airing anime a season so that’s not much. Anyway, if I can be of any help, I’d be glad to participate.

    Dear Anime Bloggers… Do you like Anime? Do you think that Anime needs a much better representation and awards system? Well, KawaiiPaperPandas has come up with an awesome solution to that problem! If we, the aniblogger community, hold our own awards, we can make it as good as we want! So let’s get this thing moving!

  8. Great to see our fellow bloggers standing up for a revolutio.. ahem.. peaceful motion to give deserving anime series their credit!
    It sounds fun to be part of the team, but I can’t guarantee a commitment when the time comes to help (I’m not a seasonal watcher either haha).
    But I’ll be cheering on you peeps and the team from the sidelines! Hope this project will be a great fun within the community ^^
