Magic mirror, on the wall—who is the fairest one of all? aka. Crimson talks a bit about Body Type

Hey guys! Here I am again, popping in for one post this month. I know, tragic right? Well, if anyone is even out there wondering (lol)

For today’s post I wanted to write a bit about this month’s OWLS topic:

“Magic mirror, on the wall—who is the fairest one of all?”

When we look in the mirror, what do we see? Do we see ourselves or someone we don’t want to be? For this month’s theme, we will be exploring some of our favorite anime and other pop culture mediums that redefine individual beauty—inside and out. Some topics we may explore are physical appearances, social expectations on gender, and the importance of self-confidence.

Also, as an FYI, this post is not part of the official tour. But if anyone is curious, these were the official stops so if you haven’t checked these out, definately do so! Continue reading

Late to the Game but Better Late Than Never [OWLS June Posts]

I usually post this thing at the beginning of the month but as a few of you might have noticed, I’ve been MIA. But that hasn’t stopped me from going around the wordpress community and checking out my fellow OWLS posts and I think we’ve hit another home run! So far everyone’s posts have been great and you should all check them out if you haven’t already

For this month, here was our topic: Continue reading

OWLS Team (unofficial?) Blog Tour: When A Family Needs to Work Together to Make It Function

Oh dear, that title sounds a bit dreadful and I even changed one of the words so that it wouldn’t sound too bad but not sure it worked…

Why hello there young people of here and there. Welcome to a possibly unofficial OWLS post. I’ve been MIA for a really long time and am not sure if this post even counts for the tour anymore. Either way I thought I’d share it with you all. Unlike my other OWLS posts, I’ve decided to make this one a bit more personal in the sense that I’m letting you all in through my family’s front door  Continue reading

OWLS Strength Blog Tour: Shirotani’s Mental Fortitude and Helping Hand (It’s OK to Need Help Sometimes)

Hey guys!

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

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!!) Continue reading

OWLS April Tour Schedule and Other Fun Updates!

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 Disruptor Blog Tour] Conexiones en Erased y Cómo Una Persona Puede Hacer Una Diferencia

Esta publicación estaba originalmente en inglés (en enero del 2017) y fue traducido porque quiero practicar mi escritura en español. Creo que lo hice más o menos “bien” 


Hola!

9f2877076afcbaab2d6267869c1c5de4c93fcc6c_hq

Hoy tenemos un post especial, como ustedes quizás notaron en el programa que publiqué la semana pasada…1) yo marco la mitad del Tour y 2) hoy fue la inaguración

Cuando iba manejando a casa escuche que la calle Lake Shore Drive estaba cerrada porque habían protestas. Yo hubiera estado alla también, si sólo pudiera salirme del trabajo. Pero no pasó y tuve que escuchar la inauguración en el trabajo porque mi jefe es un seguidor de Trump…pero me divago! La razón que menciono esto es porque queda perfecto con el primer Blog Tour de OWLS, que se centra en Disruptores

Que es un Disruptor?

Un individuo o grupo interrumpiendo un sistema o normas sociales/convenciones que ellos creen que están destruyendo lo que es moralmente correcto.

Para el Tour de hoy quería enfocarme en Erased y como el concepto de disruptores trabaja en la serie. SPOILERS empezando ya. Han sido advertidos~ Continue reading
