The year 2011 is over and we are entering the new year. If I look back at the year 2011, there are several things I can say. First, 2011 brought as a good deal of great anime titles. It was richer than 2010 and 2009. When I was putting together my top 12, I was really at a loss, because I simply couldn’t decide which anime to include there and which to leave off the list. In the end, I couldn’t put there series like iM@S, Hourou Musuko, and Working’!!, which I really enjoyed.
2011 was a year of first-times for me. In August, I was in Japan for the first time. I know I’m really taking my time more than I should, but stay tuned for some more pilgrimage posts. I hope they might be of use to some of you one day. I saw Nana and many other anison artists for the first time. I staked out outside an anime recording studio for the first time (I didn’t camp there. It was only for a short while, really ^^;). I received my first sign from a person related to anime industry. I made my first anime pilgrimage. Well, I could go on reciting, because there are a lot of first-times related to my trip to Japan, but let’s keep it at that.
If everything goes smooth, this blog may go through a cosmetic surgery in the second half of January. Nothing big, just an up-lift ^^
I wish you all the best for the new year. あけましておめでとうございます！今年もよろしくお願いします！
