Welcome back to another OWLS post. It’s been awhile so I thought I’d go over what OWLS is, just in case anyone reading this is a newcomer. Back in December, a couple bloggers thought it’d be cool to team up and create a blogging group (credit for idea goes to OGZ) that did monthly blog tours (credit to Arria) where we would promote acceptance in the community for all individuals via anime and related fandoms
I think a lot of us mentioned that we didn’t just want to promote tolerance for minority groups, but acceptance. Personally, I wanted to share some of my thoughts on certain matters and learn from my fellow bloggers about theirs.
Our first tour was in January and we talked about Disruptors, which I think is one way to describe OWLS. Since then we’ve completed 4 tours and we’re now on our 5th one! And each time I think we’re getting better at what we set out to do Continue reading OWLS Strength Blog Tour: Shirotani’s Mental Fortitude and Helping Hand (It’s OK to Need Help Sometimes)
Hey guys! So we are now in May eherm the BEST month of the whole year. I take no arguments over this fact
Why is it the best month ever? Because I get to eat cake three times
I know, it’s amazing isn’t it. It’s the only month I can eat so many cakes and not get the whole ‘you’re eating too much junk’ talk. You see in May my family has 2 birthdays and then Mother’s Day! I’ll be making cheesecake and ordering some other kind of ‘real’ cake for the celebrations (oh snap, that mean’s it’s 6 cakes!!)

Hey guys! Hope you’ve all been enjoying all the OWLS posts this month (I know I have)
For this month we did a topic that a lot of our members were looking forward to. Two people that I can think of who were pretty excited about this month’s theme are Naja, who wrote about Killer Bee and the Shinobi of the Hidden Cloud Village, and Kat, who wrote about diversity in Bleach. For this blog tour I also noticed a lot of our members branching out of the anime fandom. For example, Arria wrote about live action movies, Lyn wrote about a South Korean webtoon, and Rai talked about Avatar
Me on the other hand. I was slightly nervous about the topic and for my tour stop I thought I’d do a little bit of “get to know me”, anime, and discussion post. Don’t worry, no baby pictures shall be disclosed in this post (hehehe) Continue reading OWLS Colors Blog Tour: Crimson’s Upbringing and (Lack of) Connection to Colors
Hey guys! So it looks like I’m a tad late with this post but figured “better late than never”, right? ^^
This month OWLS is touching on a topic I felt has been really important lately and something I never really took notice of until now. Our tour is called “Colors” and we’ll be looking at race, people of color in anime, and how they are represented in media Continue reading OWLS April Tour Schedule and Other Fun Updates!
