Hi all! I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
We’re approaching the five month mark for the blog. It’s been a wild ride, especially given recent events. I can’t thank you all enough for the continued support. I’m seriously humbled by it.
Today I come to you with the most exciting development since the inception of the blog: I’m going to be working with the esteemed anime nerds over at Wave Motion Cannon! I’ll be publishing anime content through them, as well as appearing on their podcasts (which is a totally new and admittedly frightening prospect to me). Anything I do over there will be publicized both on this blog and my Twitter. In fact, you can read my first piece about how Kemono Friends overcame the stigma of CGI animation right here, right now.
So what does this mean for Thoughts That Move? Well… outside of increased exposure, very little. As far as anime content goes, I’ll still opt to put some of my work on TTM. Examples of this are pieces along the vein of my Dissecting Monogatari project (which I will return to) and my post-viewing thoughts on Your Name. I’ll also continue writing about other mediums, as well as taking a multi-media approach wherein I use examples across formats to make a broader point (as I did here). It’s actually this latter style that I’m most excited to hone as I feel the anime community has a lot to gleam from looking at how other mediums approach narrative.
And that’s it! Again, be sure to read my Kemono Friends piece on WMC and give ’em a follow on Twitter. If you have any questions I’ll be happy to answer them in the comments. Thank you for reading, thank you for your support, and keep being beautiful.
