It is wonderful to be back at writing for another OWLS blog tour. However, the circumstances between the last time I wrote for a blog tour and this one are extraordinarily different. Back then, I was taking about the grandiose idea of peace with the onset of the Inter-Korean summit and comparing it with Avatar: The Last Airbender. Now, we’re in a dark time with the global health crisis affecting our families and communities. This brings us to this month’s prompt put forward by the OWLS blog tour:
Before everything else, you should totally check out Kat’s blog entry about misunderstanding hate from the Harry Potter books.
This month’s blog tour has been quite a challenge for, not only me, but the majority of everyone in OWLS. The prompt, “Diplomacy,” has so many perspectives to discuss about that choosing one is proving to be difficult. So I decided why not make it a little bit confusing for me by using a show that’s dialogue-heavy, Oregairu.
An anime series known for its deep and mind-boggling hits about high school life and society, I found Oregairu to be the best basis material for the “Diplomacy” prompt as the show is centered around the politics of a regular high school. Before we dive in, spoilers are in great abundance here and if you do not take kindly to that, avert your eyes!
WEEKLY WRAP-UP – With all the new anime and gaming titles coming out, this week has been pretty material-intensive for me. Not knowing where to begin with the new anime season, or have the means to access newly released games, it has become a struggle for me to find compelling content to write about.
