This is a long and arduous process but I’m happy finally have it come together. I mean I watched it with some of the people featured in my esteemed judges panel and I think the fact that I can sing-along with most of these proved that I’ve probably gone insane. Yes, I asked a month ago what are the worst, the awful, the annoying, the just epically bad anime openings that you know and we’re going to find what is the worst. Did we find the right choice for the worst our opinions a little whack. I guess you’ll just have to watch the video and see what you think.
Thanks to the Cast
Of course this wouldn’t have been as great without everyone coming together, from everyone who participated in the open ballot poll, to who retweeted and shared the poll, judged anime openings and watched the video. I think the anime community has been very welcoming and full of inspirationally creative and wholesome people that I enjoy getting to give back in a way that highlights the personalities and characters behind each and every unique blog I come to encounter.
Boy you guys deserve a better editor but I couldn’t ask for a better panel of experts so thanks to all involved I’ll link some places you all can find them at:
Lethargic Ramblings: YouTube
Finally there’s me. I don’t like the begging and the pleading and the phony smiles of please like, comment, and subscribe. Please follow me, I’m so special and cool. I like to think, the value of the content should speak for itself and people will recognize that I’m constantly trying to be fun and different, and innovative or whatever. I feel like my content is a little sleep on, sometimes.
I think we always applaud blogging productivity when it’s very visible. Wow you post everyday, you do this and that and it’s wonderful. Credit to that, that’s hard and that’s incredible but… I worked on this for a month. I know you must be thinking, wow, you’re really bad at making videos but I: researched forums and searched to page 10 on Google to find songs, I had to put everyone’s data into a chart and than I had to match score totals to the show, than I had to put each number into each textbox in the graphic [ there’s 24 people and I did it for every song reviewed regardless if in the video so do 24 x 150 plus research the title and show to accurate put, and make a graphic for everyone that you have to message individually and start a group chat and download clips and record an intro/outro bit and edit the audio levels and greenscreen each clips into the graphic, and make an original thumbnail and upload the video to YouTube and make sure it exports fine… and is this run-on sentence anxiety-inducing enough because jeez is it a process.
It comes out you watch it for 30 minutes and it’s an afterthought the next day. That was nice and dandy strange movie man but what do you offer tomorrow, you want to take a break after spending a whole month on a creative project, well than I guess you suck. I think that is the abysmal joy of the unfillable hole known as the creative process. The audience isn’t satisfied come tomorrow and I’ll never be satisfied as long as their is a bar to raise, room to grow, and ideas to bring into reality.
I mean I do this as much for myself as I do an active audience out there but if I could do the whole ask for a larger following. If you’re not, can I get to 500 followers on WordPress by the end of the year, reaching that milestone has been slowing creeping closer and I just want to legitimatize that I belong in the company of people I associate with. Then of course like the video, subscribe, leave a nice comment. I know I tackling really obscure topics on YouTube but I wish that not every video feels like it fails to reach an audience larger than 3 average blog posts.
That’s it, enjoy the video and stick around because I hope I can continue to make very ambitious and interesting content here at the movies.
