A way for me not to realise that already I’ve been blogging for three years. This notification popped up the other day and can’t believe it. I haven’t made up my mind yet if I will celebrate this in some way but if you guys want me to. Then your welcome to suggest down in the comments as my mind has been elsewhere, regarding other blog plans recently. But still it makes me really happy I’ve been at this for so long, no need to worry I won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Won’t lie have been a busy bee planning some things for the blog and youtube, which are underway. I’ve talked about my 2018 plans for the blog if you want to check out. Over the next few weeks you’ll be seeing some extra posts and the content I promised to bring. Already I have four posts in the works so you know it’s not all talk I’m just preaching. But like last year I’m not going to be burning out myself. Trying to get a post on the day you wanted too but rush it. That left me feeling bad and not happy with what I’d put out. One post at a time from here on out.

Certainly did not waste any time checking out other posts as of late and came across some new blogging faces. Which reminds me before anything currently in the process of updating my blogger roll consisting of other anime bloggers. If you want to be on that list please comment below. I posted about this on twitter but wanted to mention on here. So just let me know!!

Regarding my Friday Features it’s still the same layout introducing you to a new blogger and four posts I’ve read. The post-a-rama are still for end of each month and where I really will let loose featuring plenty of posts.

Ready to see WHO are my First Features for 2018?

Blogger Feature

First blogger feature for 2018 is a blogger and youtuber like me and know there manga. It’s Laura from Manga Hoarder. If recommend a manga lover to seek recommendations from then it’s Laura, her content is inspiring. Her manga knowledge is plain to see in her content and inspired me to want to get into the manga scene more. I’ve enjoyed your content for the last year and found some great mangas to add to my read list. Laura covers in her content reviews, recommendations and participating in reading challenges. A cool thing Laura set up is her own reading challenge, which I’m playing along with for myself this year. You should check it out and play along as well, if your someone like me trying to get their manga ace game back.

Hope you go check out Laura’s content and opens your world more to manga!!! 



5 Reasons To Watch Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pure By Reasons To Anime 

I thanked Casper for writing a piece on a anime I’ve not seen in years. Mermaid melody you could say was one of the first magical girl type series ever watched. Caspers writes a great 5 reasons to give this adorable series a go. After reading this piece the temptation to watch this again is too great. If you like cuteness and magical girl give Caspers post a read. 



One Week Friends Movie Review By Minty From Black And Yellow Otaku Gamers 

One week friends was a cute watch couple of years ago until coming across this post. Had completely forgotten this was getting a live action movie. Minty detailed review expresses it be a solid live adaption. A few changes are different regarding the characters but reading it was still a sweet, pure watch. Was good to know and really enjoyed this review. Can’t wait to watch it for myself. If you like your movie adaptions or romance give Minty’s review a read!! 


Welcome To I-Revo Resort Collaboration Review By Auri and Ryuji

I think people in this blogging community are becoming some dam smartie beans. Like when reading Ryuji from Ryuji Anime Corner and Auri from Manga Toritsukareru Koto collaboration piece on a ice skating manga. Have to commend Ryuji and Auri on their funny and inventive piece covering this manga, selling it like that tempting holiday you want to have. I was laughing at mosts points while reading and great to see collaborations like this. Check it out !!! 


The Mythology Of Ancient Magus Bride By Bloom Reviews 

Bloom Reviews dives deep into the history and Mythology of the ancient magus bride. I hope someday to do a piece like this on a series but was incredibly interesting. Just all the references for all the different celestial creatures used shows how much thought went into this series. Makes me appreciate that about the ancient magus bride. Definitely give a read over you’ll learn something new. !!

That concludes the first Friday Feature for this year !! Wohoo! I have plenty of posts to be featured for the next few weeks. Make sure to go check out all the awesome people in this post!!

It’s 38 degrees today so it’s pool time for me haha

I’ll see you guys next Friday and next post!!

    By the way, I wouldn’t mind being added to that blogroll of yours…

  2. I absolutely love Laura’s down-to-earth nature and her passion for reading and collecting manga—as a collector, she is an inspiration for me! Huge congrats again on 3 wonderful years Lita!! As for celebration ideas…hmm, maybe celebrate with sharing 3 of your favorite English dubs, 3 anime you are glad to have released and own, or 3 things you’ve never shared about yourself yet—the possibilities are endless!
