I don’t know where this idea came from, I just know it’s been knocking around in my drafts folder for a long time without me actually going and writing it. The idea, inspired by the numerous blog tags that have been floating around the anime blogging community, is to have a go at assigning each of the biblical seven deadly sins with characters and their actions throughout the shows I’ve seen.
I’ve been reading manga for about 12 months now, and in that time I’ve noticed that sometimes a series I was enjoying will end super abruptly or will simply stop updating, and it’ll be months before I remember it and wonder what happened. Through idle curiosity, I’m learning about the manga industry and how things can just go away on a publisher’s whim.
It’s been an interesting experience, and one that’s given me insight into the community’s pain over losing series. And as someone who still feels relatively new to the game of anime/manga and writing about it, I thought I’d list a bunch of series I was enjoying that ended in ways I felt were kind of abrupt.
In all the time I’ve been writing, I haven’t really had much opportunity to do many of these Blogging Awards. I have Alyssa of Al’s Manga Blog to thank for this nomination, which comes at a time where I’m not exactly at my most prolific when it comes to writing on here.
Alyssa has been kind enough to throw some comments on my video games posts as I’ve been taking a mini break from writing about anime, but I recommend checking her blog out covering a lot of comic books and manga, as well as the odd video game review herself.
