The end of the year is upon us. 2020 has been a good year, and 2021 seems like it’s going to be another baller of a year. So I wanted to take some time to do some housekeeping, talk about where the blog is at, where it’s going and plans for the future. Let’s get into it after the cut!
Taking next week off
With Christmas coming next week, I’m going to take another week off to spend time with the family, stretch the writing fingers and frankly just enjoy the holiday. I don’t like taking time off, but I figure there isn’t going to be much happening next week, so I may as well. There will be a Tune of the Week entry of course, but aside from that, going to have a little vacation.
Looking back at 2020
I’ve done a lot of stuff over this last year. A couple collaborations, plenty of hentai reviews, and discussed several light novels, manga, and anime series. I even got through a lot my backlog, with blog posts about Berserk, Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Parallel Paradise, Persona 4, Valkyrie Drive Mermaid, Spy X Family, and the Overlord Light Novels. It’s honestly been a good year for the blog, and I’ve been surprised that burned through a lot of what I expected to carry me into 2021. Not that it is a bad thing, but it also means I need find some more stuff. Which brings me too…
I’ve started plenty of long-term blogging projects over the past few months, taking volume by volume looks at certain series. I expect these to continue into the new year, supplemented of course by my seasonal check-in and random stuff that crosses my desk. This is what you can expect coming down the pipe in the near and far future. Please note that all of these are subject to change.

As you can see, we got a packed 2021, and I hope that by this time next year, or the next housekeeping post. I’ll have made a good dent in it. Of course things always change, new shows come and go, and sometimes more time or less is given to me. I do think I can get at least 70% of this done, sans the Long-term projects but we’ll see.
As always my heartfelt thanks to Crow, Irina, Lynn, Scott, Yomu and Pete for always liking or sharing my posts and welcoming my comments. A big thanks goes to new contacts such as Jon Spencer, iniksbane and infinitezenith for always being there for chat or comment.
