Here we are, 5 years after the relaunch of The Anny Blog after a turbulent 2013 when it just seemed to crash and burn. The Annyversary is on Saturday, but I won’t do anything special for it.
Let’s go over the past year though. 2017 I got a child and I spent the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 focusing on that, to return to The Anny Blog in May again. At the time my child was 7 months old.
I think that was a fairly fast bounce back… maybe? Especially for someone as frail as me.
After that I posted almost every month. I feel like not posting was the biggest mistake in my life, but if I see it from a reader’s perspective, I wouldn’t have blamed any of the bloggers I occasionally read blogs of if they missed a couple of months when they had a child within approximately a year. So I’d say all is good. Continue reading →
As the 19th century draws to a close, the end of the world looms. The clan of Noah and the akuma prepare to trigger the Three Days of Darkness. A holy war has raged between the Millennium Earl and the Black Order, an organization formed to save the world.
Our hope lies in a holy weapon called Innocence and those known as Exorcists, who wield it against the Earl’s evil agents.
Allen Walker has an arm with special powers. It can kill “akuma” – a sort of artificial demon – and save the soul that inhibits it. Because of that he has been sent to the Headquarters to become an exorcist by his master, who picked him up after he got cursed by his father, Mana Walker, for turning him to an akuma.

First of all! So sorry about missing the monthly post! I was a week behind in my mind and thought I had one more week to write my D.Gray-Man review. (Gosh, Anny! Where’s the spoiler alert?!) But you know, I can’t be the only mum who write reviews of fiction who forgets they need to write a review because childcare takes up all mind power… right?
Anyway, I watch so many shows and read so many titles I never write a proper review of, that I could probably post a batch every 2-3 times a week and still have a monthly post. Maybe I should do that. Maybe I shouldn’t. If I do, I guess you wouldn’t mind the missed monthly post as much… Maybe? Or not? It depends on you prefer quantity over quality? I guess? Wait did I just say my batch posts are bad?!
Five years ago, Ning Xi lost her baby after a car accident when she was 7 month pregnant after her step sister Ning Xueluo plotted for Ning Xi to be raped, walked into a different room and had sex with a stranger. Now Ning Xi is a struggling, but extremely talented actress clawing her way up in the entertainment world as her step-sister does everything to make it hard for her. One night Ning Xi gets locked into a storage room at a bar to ensure she doesn’t go to an audition, and there she finds a little child who got locked in with her. She saves the child, who in turn saves her, and his father, the well-known head of Lu corporation Lu Tingxiao, says he’ll marry her as repayment for what she did for her son. She can’t accept such a thing as a reward, but it seems getting away from Lu Tingxiao is not that easy… Continue reading →

This batch is… a comic batch post! It’s actually a batch of first impressions of comics. I don’t do a lot of first impression posts, but I thought I’d share at least a few first impressions. I’ll try to make more comic/novel posts in the future. And I hope to get in at least one game post before the year ends.
Honkai Impact 3rd

It’s a little late, due to various reason I can’t really blame on, but…
HAPPY 12TH BLOGOVERSARY!
…or was that what you were supposed to tell me?
Anyhow, I had more people join in than I expected! I was a little sad I couldn’t choose more winners, to be honest. There had to be just one and that was…
The winner was chosen randomly, so no hard feelings, okay? I will hold another giveaway when I have 20 patrons. You can become a patron if you’re willing to give up a single dollar a month. It helps The Anny Blog to continue having content. Actually, it helps paying the bill for the domain name and keeping it add free as well. And you get some really nice bonuses!
It’s been a while since my last batch post, but allow me to briefly share my thoughts on a few shows I’ve watched recently (or not so recently but never finished the posts for). There will be another batch soon, because I didn’t want this post to be too long and I’ve binged a lot of shows while I was pregnant and during the past year and I’d like to share my thoughts on at least a portion of them. Next month will be a game review, but I think there’ll be another batch post the month after that.

Okay, so now that you’re all high schoolers, I hope you understand your responsibilities and study hard…
…is what I’m supposed to say, but really, all that boring stuff is secondary.
Like it or not, these three years of high school will really fly by. How you spend them is up to you. You can focus on your studies, do your best at sports, or goof off the entire time. Everything goes. The most important thing is that, for the three years you spend in this school, you enjoy yourself each and every day.
Fun makes might!
Fun makes right!
And fun is infinite!
Over the next three years, eat, sleep, and enjoy yourself to your heart’s content.
Futaba Ooki (CV: Ai Kayano) has just moved to a new town and is going to start a new school. Because it’s far from her home, she’s practicing riding her moped and takes the chance to explore the area, when she stops by to take a look at the sea. There she’s fiddling with her phone as an elderly woman starts talking to her. The woman makes Futaba look away from her phone to actually take a proper look at the sea, and something in her starts shifting… Continue reading →
