Anime B&B has been up and running for almost six years now, and it was only last year that I opted to join the 12 Days of Anime. There are quite a few seasonal aniblogger projects flitting around, but the two that had always caught my eye were 12 Days and Secret Santa. I kept meaning to try Secret Santa, but repeatedly missed the deadline for application. Finally, this year I stalked the date like a crazy person and actually remembered to submit.
I love receiving recommendations from others, both friends and strangers, and I particularly was curious what someone who had thoroughly gone over my watch list and looked at my blog and/or Twitter would do for suggestions. I agonized over my own recommendations for my assigned blogger, worried that he/she would absolutely hate one if not all of them. A big part of me was worried that the person assigned to me would troll with shows completely outside of my comfort zone. While I’m not adverse to trying something completely different, I do veer away from red flags like impossibly large boobs all over the promotional material.
Thankfully, what I received so perfectly fit me, it was like I was recommending items for myself:
- No Game No Life
- Omoide no Marnie
- Tamako Love Story
I was familiar with all three when they first came out, but never got around to watching them. Now that I have a convenient reason to hunt them down, I plan on reviewing each one separately. Thank you, Secret Santa!
