Now that every show has had a
few bunch of episodes to make its case, it’s time to tell you what we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2017 blogging schedule.
As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season . . . is what we used to say, but with multiple episodes under our belts, we’re pretty confident in our picks. Will some of them blow up in our faces? Look, I’m not a psychic. If I was, I’d get paid more. This is what we’re going with for now.
In staff news, Passerby is taking a season off to get wittier and prettier and possibly gayer, I don’t know, see above vis a vis me, psychic powers, etc. I know he’s planning to return next season, though, so Passerby fans, sit tight. Choya is carrying this season with four series, followed by Zaiden and Takaii. Good job y’all. Special thanks go to Pancakes for taking care of the screencaps for Mahoutsukai no Yome so Enzo could continue charming everyone with his words. Also, Cherrie and I are still here, I guess.
In show news, we’re currently covering 16 shows, 4 of which are carry-overs. I’m pretty pleased with the shows our writers decided to blog, because while a few undeserving gems are left without coverage, most of those are pure comedy or slice-of-life, which are hard to cover week after week. Not that Himouto! Umaru-chan R, Osomatsu-san 2, and Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou didn’t get a hard look, but I’m sure they’ll get finale posts. I also may end up blogging the second half of Yuuki Yuuna, though I’ll wait to see how the first couple episodes are before I promise anything.
Quick reminder that new writer applications are permanently open. If you didn’t catch the announcement last season, we’re leaving them open because the whole recruitment post production is bothersome. If you’d like to write for RandomC, send an email to stilts(at)randomc(dot)net AND cherrie(at)randomc(dot)net with the subject line “RandomC Application” or “Random Curiosity Application”, and include a bunch of info about yourself (be concise) + a RandomC-style post on a recent anime episode + 36 screencaps of said recent episode. I also suggest you read the last two big recruitment posts, because they contain some good tips. Who knows, we just might bring you on. It’s happened before! That’s how y’all got stuck with me.
We also have a new announcement this season. Have you heard of Discord? Well, if you’re old and crotchety like me, here’s a short blurb written by Zaiden, because he’s been taking the lead on this and also I’m really lazy. Thanks for enabling my sloth, Zai-chan. Here’s what he says:
Discord is a free and casual text chat application that has a gorgeous user interface, while being rather simple to use. Random Curiosity has recently started up a server, and we’re seeking to engage with the community at large, as well as widening the scope of discussion about anime and manga. What you’ll get out of it are interesting group conversations, and the chance to interact with writers! Feel free to join us over at discord.gg/aheHGkf.
We look forward to seeing you there!
That’s all I’ve got this season. Thank you for your time, your attention, your love, your lust, and all the forthcoming comments complaining about shows we’re not covering. We love you all. Cheers!
- 12/10: Though the prequel didn’t demand it, the sequel must be blogged. Stilts is blogging Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru: Yuusha no Shou!
