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

For this tour, we will be exploring anime characters that have overcome adversity due to a personal insecurity or physical weakness. It is these type of characters that many anime fans may identify as role models because fans are able to feel empathetic towards these characters’ struggles and insecurities

Because I already talked about Kyoko for the Sanctuary tour, I guess that means I can’t talk about her for this one (or you know, if I did, it would just end up as a repeat of the other). Instead, I thought I’d talk a little bit about a boy’s love manga because I’ve just been itching to talk about one for this tour since forever Continue reading OWLS Strength Blog Tour: Shirotani’s Mental Fortitude and Helping Hand (It’s OK to Need Help Sometimes)

OWLS Colors Blog Tour: Crimson’s Upbringing and (Lack of) Connection to Colors

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

[OWLS Sanctuary Blog Tour] Kyoko’s Journey to Accepting Love and Acquiring Inner Sanctuary

**Spoilers for Skip Beat manga + this is a long post**

A couple of days ago OWLS did a little tag game on Twitter for Intl Women’s Day, where we had to post who our favorite female characters were. The first character that came to mind was Kyoko from Skip Beat. I’ve loved her for almost 10 years now and even as I wait “patiently” for the next manga update, I get emotional for her struggles in life.

Now, if you’re wondering why I’m mentioning Kyoko, it’s because the OWLS blog tour for March deals with “Sanctuary” and Kyoko was the first person I thought of in terms of the topic Continue reading [OWLS Sanctuary Blog Tour] Kyoko’s Journey to Accepting Love and Acquiring Inner Sanctuary

OWLS Disruptor Blog Tour: Connections in Erased and How A Single Person CAN Make a Difference

Hey guys! Today we have a special post, as you may have noticed from the OWLS Blog Tour Schedule I posted last week, and it just so happens that 1) I mark the middle of the tour and 2) today was the inauguration

As I was driving home tonight, I heard that Lake Shore Drive was closed because of protestors. I would have been down there as well, if I could have gotten out of work, but alas, I was stuck listening to the Inauguration because my boss is a Trump supporter…but I digress! Why I mention the inauguration is because it fits perfectly with OWLS first blog tour, which is centered around Disruptors.  Continue reading OWLS Disruptor Blog Tour: Connections in Erased and How A Single Person CAN Make a Difference
