September 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

The month of September has been pretty crazy in the Anisphere, the industry, and the meatspace altogether. As a result of said craziness, Owningmatt93 was not able to join us in our monthly roundup post (RIP in peace), but we have persevered and found ourselves a pretty broad variety of fascinating content, so much so that we weren’t able to include all of the picks that we wanted to here!

You want an in-depth look at Mari Okada? It’s here. You want to strap back into the 2000’s and dig into a jazzy AMV? Bub, we’ve got you covered. Do you want some perspective on that Death Note movie that came out on Netflix? God help you, but we’ve got that for you, too. Do you want to get academic, or talk about love, or dig into some talk about taboo and masochism, or other neat stuff? Strap yourselves in, because boy have we got it covered. Whatever the case, you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy here, so give it a look, and check out some of these pieces that we couldn’t get enough of this month!

August 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Hey, Mythos here!

Well, it’s another month in the Anisphere and there’s been a ton of new and awesome content to check out!  It seems like every month there’s just more and more incredible analyses, entertaining videos, and in-depth podcasts that I’m having trouble wading through the sea of content.  I love it, though, and I think it speaks to the incredible love the world has for a medium that started so little on a small collection of islands in the pacific.

Well, given how much there is to look at, we Backloggers thought we’d take it upon ourselves to point out a few.  So grab a beer and a cowboy hat as we have ourselves a hot dang hootenanny and round up of few of ‘em rascals for y’all’s viewin’ pleasure.  Ignore the Texan bleeding through and let’s get started with a choice pick from all of us at the Backloggers!

July 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Hey ya’ll, welcome to our anime content round-up, a new sort of post that we’re doing!

In similar veins to other anime bloggers, this will be a collection of all the articles, videos, and creators that we wanted to give mention to for their outstanding content and also gives us a way to thank them for the work they’ve put into these pieces. Of course, there’s tons more content and content creators than just these that we’d love to mention, but to keep these posts brief for your sanity and ours, we limited to five for each of us.

Since there’s three of us at The Backloggers, we also will be rotating out who picks the notable posts each time (and also who writes these little intros). There will likely be times where all three of us will contribute to the same month, but that will not necessarily always happen, but we’ll try to provide at least two people’s choices and switch around who does them for variety. These choices will be personal picks, either something we find interesting, thought-provoking, or just unique in terms of their content, and then we’ll talk a little bit about why we chose each article.

Anyway, enough with the obligatory info dump. Let’s move on to our picks, starting with Mythos.
