The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

And the winner is…

“Winners” more accurately, as the depth of applicants in the NHRV staff contest was so good that we decided to accept three new writers.  So congratulations to kadian1364, Buttercup and Kylaran.

kadian1364 has been posting enthusiastic and insightful comments on many different corners of the anime blogosphere for some time, and he kicks things off with a review of the Ghibli classic, Porco RossoButtercup is an anime and J-drama fan and (she tells us) a hardcore WOW player.  Her first review is of the live action thriller, Liar GameKylaran is a psychology major who is particularly interested in otaku culture.  He’ll be posting his first article on the blog in the near future.  Feel free to stop by on the forum and wish them luck (but not in the “Introductions” forum, which is closing down today).

Finally a word to those who weren’t selected.  We were overwhelmed by the quality of applicants, and there were some among you who were particularly unlucky to miss out.  There will be other opportunities to join the NHRV staff in the future, and I’ll be making an announcement about this within the next couple of months.  As for the staff contest, which we started essentially to test the waters, I think we can consider it a success, and we’ll almost certainly be running one again around this time next year.  In the meantime, good luck to our new staff members, and I hope you enjoy what they have to offer in the future, both near and far.

    This is sappy and potentially embarrassing — all the more reason to Say It!, clearly — but congratulations, kadian1364! Your little sister is proud of you.

    P.S. The next time I see you, please don’t hurt me.
