Comparing the last 3 months to the rest of last year and the difference is night and day. we made the resolution last year to continue pecking away with more anime music-related goodness. There was pecking, sure, but it was horrendously slow going. To compare, from May 2013 through May 2014, we succeeded in writing 16 reviews. Not bad, but not ideal. But then, from May 2014 to January 2015, we wrote a mere 10 music reviews. There was even a month where we posted nothing at all, a first for us. Thoughts of the unthinkable began to creep in.
And then January happened. A combination of some life changes on my end and the ensuing New Year’s resolutions solidified my determination to right the ship. Anime music was too awesome to be ignored and I was still passionate about that medium, even if my written output said otherwise. All I needed was to get my priorities in order.
As a result, these past 3 months saw us pour out 7 music reviews. What makes this achievement even better was that since the middle of January, we’ve managed to pump out a post a week! That voracious posting rate was something we haven’t seen since the middle of 2013.
With that, we can sit back and look at the fruits of our labors with glowing satisfaction. More importantly, we can move forward into Anime Instrumentality’s 7th year in existence with much more confidence about the direction of the site. And if not the direction, then at least the knowledge that we can carry out our vision to provide you all with the best that anime music has to offer. Lucky 7 fight, right?
That brings us to a few things:
