The second AniBlog Tourney is finally here to bring the greatest e-drama and competitive spirit to the Aniblogosphere. Compared to the last one, there are now 128 participants and separated into four sections. Since the match ups are here, I may as well give a brief thoughts about my potential opponents.
Draggle’s Anime Blog – It’s a fairly popular episodic blog which I’m familiar with, but don’t subscribe to. I feel confident that I can win this round based on the blog’s overall content consisting mostly of episodic and review posts. However, I shouldn’t get ahead myself until the tournament starts.
Anime/Otaku – It’s a fairly old Anime blog focusing primarily on editorial content and analysis. Given that I win the first round, this one might become a challenge.
Anime Princess – Our last competitor in the last tournament. Given that she succeeds in her matchup and I come up with come kind of miracle, I think competition will get rough and the likely hood of succeeding is kind of low since she makes creative posts and writes good reviews.
Analog Housou – Again, this blog mostly consists of reviews and various editorials… another tough blog to beat.
But yeah, given the predictions, I hope that I don’t end up losing in the first round like I did last time since I worked harder to improve my blog and experiment with new things in the past year. As they say, this is not a popularity contest. You should base your decisions on the content and to a lesser extent, the overall presentation. With that, I wish everyone luck and I will start critiquing blogs when the tournament begins on April 15th.
