Genkina Hito Tumblr Blog

GFP Bunny Main Protagonist Yuka Kuramochi

It finally happened. My ego was too big for one blog. I started a new one.

Actually I have been thinking about doing it for a while but I finally took the plunge when I had a lazy five minutes at home and created a slideshow using my random images in my download folder and played some Touhou music to it. It looked awesome. Imagine all of the anime, film images and posters and manga that came up in a haphazard way… Glorious.

Anyway, my computer is stuffed full of images and I want to do more than have them take up space on my hard drive. They can now take up space on the line… I mean online. Every film/anime review on this blog will be accompanied by a flurry of images on my Tumblr. I’ll also make Gifs to put on there because I like making them but I rarely use them here. There will also be random stuff like Jonathan Meads and video games. I’ll also start uploading a film poster a day so people can track down their favourites. I may also highlight certain films. This week, it’s GFP Bunny.

What is the Tumblr called? It is called Genkinahito. How inventive. Time to shine.


Genkina Hito and the LAMMY Awards 2013

I joined the LAMB (Large Association of Movie Bloggers) nearly two years ago (around the time I was playing The Last Window: Secret of Cape West!) with the intention of bringing a greater focus to Japanese films and anime and informing people about film releases and festivals. I feel like I am doing that but since I joined the LAMB I have participated in few of the many events they organise (to be honest, if it isn’t related to Japanese or Korean cinema I tend to overlook it). I did participate in one which collected any and all J-horror themed reviews where I submitted five reviews. So I was surprised when I found out that I was submitted for consideration in the category of Best Movie Genre Blog for my efforts thanks to my friend Bonjour Tristesse!

The submission stage is over and today is the final day of the voting stage to select the nominees.

The year I really get going with Ani-blogging is the year I get a shot at an international movie related award! My lack of interaction with other members of the LAMB (I don’t use Twitter properly either) means I probably won’t get further than the nomination stage and polls close today but I created these two campaign posters Sunday night after watching XXXHOLiC and Arrietty in 40 minutes while listening to some fun punk-pop just to have some fun and contribute to the LAMMYs.

The event has inspired me to get more involved. If I can convert members of the LAMB to appreciate Japanese films then I would have done a decent job at this blogging thing. I have already cast my votes and I look forward to the results.

Look out for my anime movie reviews in Foreign Chops #10: Japanese Animation where Ponyo, Arrietty, Berserk, Mai Mai Miracle and The Wolf Children all get a go.

Liebster Blog Award

I had a nice surprise at the end of last week when I received a Liebster blog award from Andina over at Inspired Ground. It is the first blog award I have received and it comes at a time when I have big plans for my blog. Anyway my thanks go out to Andina.


“The rules are that the winners have to pay forward to other people whose sites are worth the recognition. If they accept the award, they should: thank the person who nominated them; nominate five other favorite blogs with fewer than 200 followers, and copy/paste the Liebster Blog Icon into their post.”
