Aniblog Tournament Finals

So… some way or another I’ve actually reached the finals for the Aniblog Tournament! I’d have thought I would be “technical difficulty”-outed before the semi-finals but it looks like I managed to weather that too!

In any case, I don’t think I’ll be able to win against psgels, but the guy deserves it better than me considering my true objective for not losing was something less pure (te~he~). Well, still, it’d be nice if I didn’t lose by a margin of over 300 votes, but I guess that’s not gonna be easy if Kabitzin couldn’t do it either.

But really, thanks for everyone who has voted for me, whether they like me or not (I suspected I won semis mainly due to backlash towards Yi….) and for supporting me so far. It might seem I don’t really thank all of you guys much, but trust me, I’m pretty much still here thanks to all of you, for each comment and each page view that I get. As long as there’s still readers and time, you can trust me to be around for long long time!

And no, I’m not going to change much of my blogging style, because I really am most comfortable with just doing what I want to do and writing what I want write. Blogs should be fun, not a chore!

    And so it ends, congrats on making it to the finals, I voted for you. May you continue to blog till the end of your days~. What that site should do in its downtime is to probably showcase a bunch of different blogs, preferably the ones that didn’t make it into the tourney.

    Agree on Rockfest’s idea. Probability of you winning against psgels? Not much.

    Meh, I voted for you. Maybe “technical difficulties” might happen. It may or may not have happened for certain blogs…

    Star Crossed Anime Blog is awesome no doubt, but I’d rather read Kurogane any day and I agree that fun is best!

    Congrats Kurogane for making that far. I’m happy that at least one of the blogs I follow could make to the finals.

    A chore to write and to read, in my opinion. Ahem.

    BTW, gratz.

    I voted for you. Psgels’s taste strongly disagrees with my own.

    @ Heero Yuy yea. There is no reason for someone who finds Shangri-la good better than Kurogane lol.

    Congratulations on making it to the finals. Good luck!

    “I suspected I won semis mainly due to backlash towards Yi….”
    I’m sure most of your votes in the semis were from people who genuinely appreciate your blog. You won because you have a great blog. ^ ^

    Honestly, I don’t get the appeal of Psgels. For one, he always has major, glaring errors in his summaries, leaves out key details, makes assumptions that are clearly wrong, and avoids spoiling himself BY NOT EVEN WATCHING THE ENTIRE EPISODE. I mean I get not watching the preview, but then your leaving yourself out on info EVERYONE ELSE WHO WATCHED IT ALREADY KNOWS.

    The rest that bugs me are just irks, like how his writing just sounds so elitist with his choices and how he choses to review old and random stuff that almost no one’s heard of just to show how indy he is. WHO THE HELL CARES IF THERE WAS AN ANNE FRANK ANIME MOVIE. But that just makes me feel that much better when he watches something with at least a HINT of moe in it, as if he’s bringing himself down to our level. Plus, the screen shots he puts up are so random and don’t say anything about the episode. But his tastes are his tastes, and the screen shot thing is probably to avoid spoiling anything. I just thought other people would notice these huge marks and vote for you, Kurogane. You should’ve won man.

    I think you need to go out and breathe some air, come back and then go breathe some air again. Just saying.

    Meh, I like psgels ’cause he gives me info on lot of the anime that comes out.

    But I’d rather vote for your blog ’cause… well no real reasons. Hope you win somehow~!!

    Damn votes looks like just under 2 to 1 votes at the moment……..

    Need more votes to ‘Kurogane’s’ ^^

    Personally Kurogane’s is more interesting to look at. Bigger screens, bigger shots. All about the anime art is it not. The other blog looks a little old fashion with the 800 by 600 formating.

    It’s odd cause your blog and psgels are the only two anime blogs I read. xD
