12 Days of Anime project call to arms

[HorribleSubs] Meganebu! - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.59_[2013.10.14_12.50.27]I should probably use a Christmas themed picture to lead this post, but I’m a rebel and wanted to use a Meganebu character posing for a Jojo’s audition picture instead.

Every Christmas anime bloggers come together and write a series of posts leading up to Christmas day. 12 days of writing about moments in anime over the past year that impressed you. Or left an impact on you. Or was shockingly awful. Anything that was memorable in some way or another that you deemed worth recalling at the end of the year. I wasn’t the first person to do this call to arms, nor will I be the last. But for the sake of keeping with tradition, here we go:

I cordially invite anime bloggers to join the 12 Days of Anime project.

The rules: Starting on 14th December, write about a moment of anime from this year each day until Christmas day. It doesn’t have to be from an anime that aired this year. It doesn’t even have to be something that happened in an anime. It could be how you started doing Jojo’s poses while attending a fashion shoot and this display is what landed you a modelling career. So long as it happened to you this year, it’s eligible. If you’re looking for examples for the kinds of posts to write, I’ve been doing this for the past 4 years. However you’re free to use whatever selection method you feel like. You also don’t need to sign up or announce you’re taking part. Just start writing on the 14th December. If you’re not used to that strict a writing schedule, I suggest you start writing them now and schedule them to post in the future.

    I am tempted to do it, I always liked your 12 Days posts. But I blog in Polish and we don’t have such traditions in here (our Christmas is only two days long), also nobody else taking part would be able to see my entries. Not that anyone would. And I don’t know if there were this many memorable moments in anime, unless I count related media like Jojo ASB.
    Nevertheless, I am impatiently waiting for your posts :)

    I’ll be on it~
    I quite enjoy making and reading these “12 Days posts”, to be honest. Maybe it’s because it’s around Christmas time.

    Will you, Inushinde and Shinmaru all do your own posts like last year?

    I remember planning to do this last year, but the last 2 weeks of december got very busy for me.

    I’m not an “anime blogger” at all but I’ll try to do something like this :D

    I would like to participate in this but I don’t have a blog or twitter or anything. When you Scamp make these posts in december would it be okay to post my own 12 things during those 12 days in the comments section? Just wanted to ask in advance. I mean it’s your list and it feels rude to post my own list inside your list. It’s going to be Christmas and I don’t want to do anything to piss anybody off.

    I love taking part in this so I’ll be at it again. I’ve been brainstorming potentially ideas and moments for months now.
