Hello! Hello! It’s a new world!
Welcome to anime@uts’s new blog! Here we’ll be posting up all the things our club does, as well as anything and everything to do with anime! (Well…maybe not everything.) We’ll have our opinions and reactions to manga and anime, all the merch we’ve just bought, the figurines just built, the songs just karaoke’d, the memes we’ve been spreading, the art that’s just been drawn, the fanfiction that’s just been written (unless it’s of a certain nature -_-‘) and anything else that we can possibly fit into an anime blog.
I want this blog to be totally random and zany, at times serious and at others hilarious, kind of like anime itself. And that’s what our club is about. It isn’t just about screening anime, but embracing the anime culture and celebrating everything about it. So stick around and join in on the fun.
I’d like this to be as much of a community based thing as the rest of the club. So if you wish to contribute something to the blog, whether it be a write-up or review, some art you’ve just drawn or a new banner to throw into the (now seemingly endless) banner rotation, just give us a yell and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. If you have a better alternative to my crappy gradient background, then I will be very greatful ^_^.
This place looks a weird right now, but once we get more posts up it’ll start to flesh out a little. On the left side of the blog, we’ll have mainly the navigation stuff as well as the blogroll. On the right side you’ll find our upcoming events (including our weekly ones) that are within the next week, as well as our twitter feed and in the future, highlight posts from the blog. Up top you’ll see our rotating banner…thing. Currently there are 84 banners in the rotation and probably more to come.
While this blog was mainly my project, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of a few individuals (largely because I suck at all things visual arts), so here’s a list of thank you’s:
- Mekky for handling the hosting of the website and for all the work you put into the old website, which I apologise for under using.
- Wonka for making an initial blog design and for being largely opinionated and enthusiastic about the change
- Syksy & yappa for co-ordinating all those art people while I wasn’t there -_-
- Susanne, IZZZ, linda, soap, Wonk, Kirishima Ayama, and SEAKAS: You guys made more banners than I could’ve hoped for.
- Susie for berating me when I make things look ugly and being critical of everything I do.
- To the rest of the execs who coped with my promises of delivering a blog and for offering input when I asked for it.
Anyway, please look forward to what Anime@UTS has to bring to you in the future!
