OWLS on ICE!! Blog Tour

I can’t believe we’re already in February! Next thing you know it’s going to be March, April, May, DECEMBER! Haha

As a recap, we just completed our first OWLS Blog Tour on January 30th and we’re not stopping there just yet. We’ve already got February all lined up with great posts for you all. Great posts featuring a certain ice skating anime, anyone care to guess?

So here’s the story: OWLS had this very democratic election for when the next tour would be and about what. Sneaky me went ahead and put in a ton of YOI ballets without anyone noticing and BAM YOI Blog Tour (but seriously, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, I see you Arria hehehe)

One of the reasons YOI got such a huge crowd (I feel) is that it treated being gay as secondary and touched on issues of gender identity successfully (subjective here). Neither Victor or Yuri were defined by their sexuality and they were your normal everyday characters with relatable life problems. Because of that (and their over 9000 Cuteness levels), OWLS decided it would be a great series to talk about during February, the supposed month of love and friendship

OWLS 2nd Blog Tour “Flight”

 

For the month of February, OWLS members will be writing about “Flight” in Yuri on Ice. We will be focusing on “the underdog’s dream, the possibilities that Yuri on Ice allows viewers to think about, and also the dangers of greed and ignorance that can influence one’s dream.”

Like last time, there will be an array of different POVs on the topic and compared to the January Blog Tour, the February Tour is BOOKED. As you guys might notice from the list below, we have some new members making their OWLS debut this month!

This time around we’ll be posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, AND Fridays!
