With Thanksgiving only three days away, and Black Friday 24 hours later, we just want to express how thankful we are for all of the things (both good and bad) that has happened throughout the 2017 year. We’ve met a lot of awesome people during our anime convention tour; from voice actors that made our childhood to entrepreneurs making a living doing what they love, we’ve actually had a really great time. With December fast approaching our attention turns toward January for our 2-year anniversary, as well as our return to Animore! Until then, here are the five things that we as D&A Anime Blog, are thankful for.
In these crazy times Family is the one thing that we need the most. From the happiest time to the saddest of times, family will always be with you. If there’s anything that we’re thankful for, it’s the love and support that we receive from our family.
How many of us have them? As the old saying goes, ‘Friends are the family you choose.’ In this case friends are also like members of your extended family. They love you, they care about you, and they’re always there when you need them!
3. Anime and Manga
Yeah, it sounds a bit ironic, but the fact is we’re thankful this awesome medium exists. Growing up it was hard finding friends that liked anime and manga as much as we did, but as we got older and found a new invention called an ‘Anime Convention’, finding other otaku became incredibly easier. (Especially after creating this blog.)
2. Seeing Cosplay At An Anime Convention
The proof is in the pudding – well, actually on our blog. We’re thankful for getting the opportunity to see some awesome cosplay during our convention runs. Upon seeing the hard work that goes into every single costume creation cosplayers and fans come up with, it has helped us gain a newfound appreciation for cosplaying in general, and that’s something that we’re thankful for!
1. YOU, the Fans!
We’re thankful that we’re able to get up everyday and share our love for anime and its fandom with the world, including you guys! None of this would ever be possible without the love and support of the anime fandom itself. Who knows what lies ahead in the years to come for D&A, but as long as we’re here, we’re going to continue to strive to become the best anime blog on the web!
Well guys, if you don’t hear from us on Thursday, that simply means we’re in Thanksgiving mode. So from both A. Goldman and Yours Truly, we wish each and every one for you a Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
