Finishing the best animes are like saying goodbye to a friend

I finally got around to watching Steins;Gate during Thanksgiving. And then rewatching it this Christmas season with my sister. I thought it was a fantastic show. And it gets better the second time through. Actually, I thought even the pacing seemed quicker the second time around, maybe because I was noticing things I’d missed the first time. Even though the time travel to change fate storyline has been done, and quite well actually with Higurashi and Madoka Magica, Steins; Gate still felt fresh, smart, engaging and interestingly enough, lovable.

Rabbit Poets – Three years and then some

Rabbit Poets was actually born in October 2008, so technically it’s already 3 years old, but I tend to celebrate the anniversaries close to the last day of the year, because a.) that’s when I became more serious about writing regularly and b.) frankly, it’s just easier to remember that way. Still, my relative absence over the last couple months did make me consider whether a picture of a funeral would be more fitting than a celebration. So with that said, I think I’m due an explanation and my thoughts moving forward.

New writer alert: Please welcome Lemmi!

I know I’m going to regret proclaiming this, but I think Lemmi will be the last new writer I’ll be taking on for a while. Feel free to parse that language to determine how I could squirm out of that statement. But never you mind, please welcome Lemmi to the team! He’s here because he’s got good taste, writes well, and is a funny dude. –RP

New Writer Introductions: Vee

I know it’s probably been said that adding another into the fray might shake things up a bit, but a little one such as this could only serve to better things!

This is me most mornings.

I’ve been given the green light to go ahead and put this up, as the wildcard anime review writer. The name’s Vee. Or Little One, if you’d prefer. (You’ve got to give me props for a cheesy opening line.)

New Writer Introductions: SabishiiMiruku

The first writer search ever went pretty well. For all those who’d taken the time to express their interest, thank you very much. I truly appreciated the time and effort everyone put into their work. It was tough making decisions. Hopefully I’ll hear from you all again in the future.

The last one is SabishiiMiruku. Not Sad Mikuru like after a Haruhi raeping. But Sad Miruku, like milk after it’s been left out too long. -RP

And then there were three. Say hello to…

Some of you may be familiar with this new author, as she’s been a contributor to the aniblogosphere for quite a while now, but for those of you that aren’t, I’d like to introduce you to Janette! Janette also runs her own blog called Black and Blue Socks, which she’ll continue to run and I implore you to check out. But she’ll also be moonlighting as a Rabbit Poet for at least through the spring season, covering Heroman and continuing the K-ON tradition. So if you know her, stop by to say hello. And if you don’t know her, well… even more reason to stop by and introduce yourself! You can also follow Janette on twitter as blackbluesock. Welcome! –RP
