In other words: Remy rambles.
Last month, The Lily Garden posted a poll in order to gauge the readers’ interests.
It seems like most of you want more analytical content and older anime series reviews. Simulcast content and visual novel reviews were next on the rankings. Manga reviews and fanfiction content were tied for last.
I realize that my wording for the simulcast option is a bit weird. I meant to convey that I would be writing longer, more analytical episodic reviews should the majority display preference for such content. Why? Because I simply feel like my episode reviews are generally mediocre. And to me, there’s nothing more disgraceful than a constant stream of content that is barely adequate.
In my opinion, episode reviews should either be quick to digest or be throughly analytical. I have consistently demonstrated an inability to be concise and sometimes I feel like I’m only doing the play-by-play instead of analyzing and elaborating on the finer details concerning an episode. In other words, I fall short in following either definition of a well-executed episodic review.
To be completely frank, the poll was a thinly-veiled attempt to determine whether or not I can take a break from doing episode reviews. But despite my dismal perception of my episodic posts, I don’t think I should. A fair amount of people swing by to look at what I have to say about this episode or that episode. And what if no other blogger is covering this series and it’s up to me to give the people what they want?
I’m going to keep trying, but please be aware that I’m not impressed with my own content. Maybe I’ll get better in due time…
tl;dr – I believe my episode reviews are trash compared to certain other bloggers’ content (let’s call them K-san and P-san) but I feel like I have to keep at it for multiple reasons.
I want to post content aside from episode reviews ,and series reviews, but I feel like I have no time to do so.
I want my voice to be heard, but I’m choking on an oversaturation of mediocre content.
