Y’know… now that I come to think about it, it’s totally my blog’s one-year anniversary today. I mean, I was on Blogspot for most of that time, but it still counts.
(The archive may tell you differently, but it is a lying bastard, and is also confused because I live in a country that is in the future. I’m… pretty sure it’s a year today.)
To recap: in that time, I’ve passed judgement on every single one of the 5th-generation Pokémon (well, okay, except for Kyurem, but he had an excuse), discussed the various Team Evils of the past and present, vigorously insulted all six Champions of the Pokémon League, taken on the top ten dumbest Pokémon of all time (plus Farfetch’d) and gotten a couple of weeks into the first season of the Pokémon anime.
Not bad, if I do say so myself. Maybe if I keep this up I’ll finally be made a Pokémon Master someday, for my great and glorious contributions to… whatever it is I claim to be doing here. I probably had a point; I can’t remember what it was at the moment but I must have had one.
Anyway, in celebration of my anniversary, here are my five favourite entries of the year, in no particular order. If you haven’t read them before, check ‘em out!
And, just for the nostalgia value, my very first real post:
As for the year to come… well, who knows? I’m hoping to get into a good rhythm alternating between blocks of anime and blocks of other stuff, and so far my plans for that “other stuff” include:
– Reviews of all the starter Pokémon (well, except for the Unova ones because, y’know, I did them already).
– A series on what I would do with the Pokémon games
once I finally manage to assassinate and replace Junichi Masuda if I ever, through some entirely non-felonious coincidence, gain a position of power in Game Freak.
– A playthrough journal of Black/White 2, once they’re released.
– And if you’re really unlucky I might even try my hand at writing a fanfic at some point.
As always, though, I’m open to suggestions – speak up and I might decide that whatever you’re thinking of is a way better idea than that dumb stuff I was planning anyway! Now, let’s have us a good year!
