Good day to you and welcome to the recap post of the 30 Day Anime Challenge that I finished yesterday. That challenge was where I discussed the different topics from the list above and gave my, hopefully, interesting thoughts on them. If you haven’t seen all 30 of the posts, I’ll help you get caught up.
First off, let’s list off all the posts and days:

What I Would’ve Done Differently
Throughout this challenge, I had some things that I regretted a little bit. First, not proofreading my posts. After I publish those posts, the next day, I find a typo or something I said wrong and I always say to myself, “god damn it”. Not just for this challenge, but in all of my posts, I tend to see some typo I make. I need to get on top of re-reading my posts.
Secondly, I would actually need to think hard and thoroughly for my choices on the topics. Some of the topics like favorite female supporting one, I actually regretted writing about it and then publishing it, because I actually had a supporting character that I liked more than the one I put down. Sometimes, I have to rush to get that day’s post up so I really need to plan ahead.
Do I Recommend You Doing This Challenge?
Absolutely. If you love anime and you want to share your favorite anything in anime, you should definitely try to do this challenge for a month. I’m sure everyone has some interesting thoughts about most of the topics from that list so it would be nice if other people would share their opinions as well.
Some of the hardships with doing this challenge can be “writer’s block” and being consistent. I definitely had a difficult time dividing up time for myself to do other things like homework or something else, which lead me to me having to write up that day’s topic late in the evening. That can also lead to a pretty rushed and messy post and I didn’t really like when I did that.
Some days, I really just didn’t know what to put down for that day’s topic. I had a little bit of a hard time thinking about the different topics and I even worried about talking about a particular show too many times in the span of thirty posts.
But, in the end, if you can manage your time well and have an interesting response each time, then you would be good to go to do this challenge.
So, I did say that at the beginning of this challenge that I would be doing these “30 Day Challenges” each month from now on. So, I’ll stick to what I said. That means, tomorrow, June 1st, will be the start of a new 30 Day Challenge. I’ll give you a sneak peek.
In conclusion, this has definitely been a fun experience for the past thirty days. I have never done anything like this before so I’m glad that I tried out something new. Blogging is really enjoyable, seeing the interesting comments I get just makes me happy. But, blogging about a massive subject like anime with a great fan base, it’s amazing to be apart of this group of bloggers on WordPress.
