Now that the summer preview is out, it’s time to let you all in on our own plans for the coming season. This is Random Curiosity’s summer 2013 blogging schedule.
As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season. We’ll also be doing introductory posts on many of the shows we’re not covering, so if something catches our eyes, things will be shifted around to accommodate. The schedule will be updated to reflect any changes.
The first thing you might notice is my glorious return to episodic blogging, woo! I enjoyed my break and it was fun doing editorials for a while, but in the end I think I enjoy episodic blogging more. My column will thus go back to a “whenever I feel like it” thing, which is a polite way of saying don’t expect regular posts.
In series news, after the occasional tantalizing post Enzo has decided to finish out the last few seasons of Hunter x Hunter! And before any of you start freaking out about how Free! doesn’t have a blogger yet, fear not – we’re planning on picking it up, we’re just not sure if the writer most interested in it will have enough time to cover it. Takaii will be doing at least the first episode, and we’ll figure it out past then.
Speaking of…nothing of the sort (wow, what an awkward segue), a quick note: Zanibas will be away for a few weeks at the beginning of the season, so we’ll be covering his shows for him until he returns. In particular, Asobi will start the fun with Uchouten Kazoku, while I’ll be taking care of Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi. Zanibas will be back to save you from us soon though, so have no fear!
Next, you might start seeing more short-form posts starting this season. You’d be surprised how long it takes to get those 36 screencaps we put in every post, and sometimes the extra time it takes makes us think twice about covering a show. That’s why we’re giving each writer the option to cover shows using half the caps (15-18). Worry not, though – the big, popular shows will still get the full 36. This will be confined to other shows that might not get covered otherwise, or comedies and slice-of-life that don’t “need” so many caps.
Finally, this season we’re going to try something a little different. At RandomC we’ve always tried to be some of the first to post about the shows we’re blogging, but with the big, detailed posts we do (and considering the fact that none of us get paid), we don’t always live up to that ideal. We’re still going to try, but this season we’re putting an extra emphasis on consistency. We think the most important part is that a post consistently come out when you expect it to, even if it’s outside of our usual 1-2 days after release. If there are any series we think this will apply to this season, we’ll edit this post and list them below. All days and time will referred to in PST. Feel free to check back here as more series are picked up.
- Prisma Illya will be blogged with the TV airing a week after the Niconico airing.
Okay, I’ve yakked on for far too long. Those are our plans for the upcoming season. I hope you’ll continue to support us as we all enjoy a fun-filled summer of anime!
