The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

The first mid-year recruit staff position is now open

Recruiting for the last vacant position on the NHRV staff list has now begun.  If you’re at all interested, we encourage you to apply.  This will be different from January’s Staff Contest (which will be an annual event from now on), in that there won’t be a set deadline.  We’ll continue to accept applications until we find a suitable candidate.  Essentially, it’s “first come, best dressed,” but we’ll postpone any decision for at least the next two weeks after this announcement, which will hopefully give everyone who wants to apply enough time to properly prepare themselves.  Otherwise, the application process will be essentially the same as it was for the Staff Contest.  Simply fill in the application form here and send it to appl…@nihonreview.com. (Solve the reCAPTCHA to get the full address.)

This will probably be the last bout of staff recruiting that the NHRV will do between now and the annual Staff Contest next year (provided no current staff member resigns in the short term), so it’s a good idea not to delay.  Just as was the case during the previous Staff Contest, we’re looking for good writers who are passionate about anime and/or Japanese live action, but are also keen to improve their writing ability.  A willingness to contribute to our staff blog will be seen as a positive, but at the end of the day, writing ability will be the most valued criteria.

If you have any questions, I’m happy to answer.  Good luck to everyone who takes part.

Two new reviews today: Nichijou OVA and The Epic of Zektbach.
