DEFIANT Wrestling Posts…

So obviously we have a lot of DEFIANT posts to go up in the next few days to get up to date with Loaded. We apologise that you’ll get a whole bunch of reviews every day for a few days but we want to get up to date.

Also with the news that REACH Wrestling has signed up to UK Wrestling on Demand (Link Here) we’ll be able to, late as it might be, review their shows again as and when they are uploaded.

We are currently waiting for the new season of anime to start to figure out what we’ll be reviewing and getting ready to do a few more things we’ve all just had a very busy start to 2019 and the only thing I’ve really had time to do is catch up with wrestling (and watch documentaries….)

I guess a little update…

So we messed up people!

We didn’t really think Halloween through at all this year and with Madoka Magica now being over we only have a few days left of Halloween and nothing to really fill the gap with.

SOOOO instead, because season 3 of Zapped is back Amanada, who has reviewed 2 of 3 episodes of season one and 1 of 6 of season two is just going to spam all 11 episodes over the next week and we’ll forget that it is Halloween on Thursday and do better next year.

In past years we’ve done film reviews during this season, we only did the first two days with film reviews because… To be honest none of us have really watched any horror films at all this year let alone this month and didn’t feel that Halloween-y this month to do it either. We’ve gone through all our favs, Halloween, Friday 13th and Nightmare so next year we’re thinking of doing Hellraiser and Leprechaun with a few different ones here and there.

What we REALLY want to know though is what anime horror series would you like us to do next year?

We’re already planning on doing the entire Parasyte binge but we’d like to hear from you if there are any horror series we haven’t already gone through that you’d like to be featured next year. So let us know in the comments, even if it isn’t anime related…

What horror stuff do you want us to do next year?

A quick look at how it’s going

We’re half way through the second month of the year and I really think that Anna, Luc and Amanda have done a good job of being active and bringing out new and interesting blogs every week.

I just wanted to quickly see how our new blogs are going down on here. We have the new Weekly Question blog, 5 Things… as well as Anna’s Playlist each and every week. We’d like to know if people are enjoying them, if there were ways you think we could improve them and of course if there is any other suggestions for blogs you’d like to see.

We do hope that as the year goes on blogs like Anna’s Diary, catch up on Anime’s we’ve half completed and more TV and wrestling reviews will be added. We hope very soon to have sorted something out make it easier looking through what we’ve reviewed so far. Of course we would like to focus on quality and what people want to see from us.

So if there are any problems, suggestion or ideas just leave them in the comments for us. We’d love to hear from you.

Another update on Anime coverage

So we’ve been pretty lack this year with our anime coverage which is usually the best kept coverage on here even if its a bit tardy at times. We usually review at least a good couple series all year round including catch up series and other things and whilst in the build up to Attack on Titan 2 we did a good job we’ve kind of died out the second part of the year.

With the non-anime reviews busier then ever and even us two busier then usual its hard to maintain much at the moment but the anime stuff is going to be sorted out as soon as possible.

As well as Ousama Game we plan on catching up with one or two other series from this season and hopefully after catching up, so lots of reviews this week, we hope to keep up with them as best we can.

You’ve all seen the sad posts about Photobucket making us pay to host images and none of us having the kind of money lying around they were asking for so we had to take down our anime hub which I believe Anna was very proud of so a less exciting looking page or something will be coming out at some point but until then we are finishing a bunch of final thought posts that never were done, including one for One Punch Man which was the oldest one we went back and found we hadn’t done, so that we can at least have a page linked to our final thoughts and whether or not we recommend series as we sort out what we’re doing..

It does mean a lot of anime content which we’ll try and water out with other bits and pieces but at the moment its the one consistent thing we can promise.

Not only that but we’ll try and ramp up flashback series with me covering shows like Sword Art Online and Elfen Lied whilst Anna reviews such classics as Space Dandy.

One of our most viewed reviews is the ONE episode of Barakamon that Anna reviewed when first coming to this blog from her own personal one that and the second season Handa-kun will also be included in our flashback series and other recent anime’s we’ve missed finishing such as Flying Witch and Divine Gate will be finished.

Of course we’d love to hear what else you’d like to hear from us, we do have a few random bits and pieces to come up but this is the major content that will be up in the next few weeks.

I Know I Keep Saying it…..

BUT I am now getting up to date with WCPW and hoping to have a more regular WCPW review coming up on the blog. Its always gonna be late by some margin because of work but I really want to try and at least review WCPW along with live shows I go to.

I’m hoping to start a Lucha Underground watch through as well, seeing its seasons so could be fun like my re-watches of old anime, and maybe WWE PPVs as well for fun as I watch them all even if I don’t watch a lot of RAW or SmackDown.

WCPW though I really want to get sorted.

This also serves as a warning. Last one I did was Built to Destroy 2 so in between the Death Note and My Hero Academy catch ups you’ll be getting WCPW catch ups too.

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it going after I’ve caught up again. For those who didn’t know our old wrestling reviewer who stopped due to bad health has now also passed away so I kinda want some wrestling to come back full time on here because he was one of the biggest driving forces to getting me to write instead of self harm and wrestling was always our go to thing when I was really down.

Photobucket problems…

So people might not have noticed that a lot of the photos we use on the blogs, especially the wrestling ones, have disappeared. This is due to Photobucket now charging if you want to host your photos on a 3rd party website.

To keep costs down we always used Photobucket to keep our storage low on WordPress, there are things like the headers to blogs that have to be stored so especially after we started with the anime reviews we decided to use Photobucket for about everything else.

We aren’t going to pay, or I personally am not going to pay, just to have the photos available to host on 3rd party sites.

SO at some point when I have time I will be deleting all the Photobucket pictures so that our site doesn’t look like such a mess. I will however be uploading all the wrestling photos onto our Facebook page, and will continue to load them on there, and link to the page in all the blogs. This includes past events too.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I’ve always been fed up of Photobucket either just never working, being difficult in general and unreliable so it shouldn’t surprise anyone I’d rather take the much easier yet less fun option of just uploading to Facebook and linking to it then having to deal with the stress AND PAY FOR IT.

We are sorry that there are now pages of random messages telling you that photos are unavailable and so on. I have very limited time at the moment and when I am at home I tend to have little energy to face having to destroy all the work we’ve done in the last two years. I will find a better way to do everything and make it all pretty again down the line but at the moment I’m focusing on my real life job and just trying to get the content out rather then worry about the little tricky things that make the place look and feel nicer but in the end don’t really add a whole lot more.
