Hello once again friendos. It’s Aria here. Lita had her own things to attend to, so I’m subbing in for her for this schedule, which is about “folklore”:
This month’s OWLS topic was inspired by the name of Taylor Swift’s new album, Folklore. Yet rather than using her conceptual definition of what “folklore” means, we are going to use its original meaning: we are going to explore the traditions and cultures of a specific group and community within pop cultural texts.
- Avatar: The Last Airbender
- Any “yokai/supernatural” anime
Summer, and particularly August, is Obon season in Japan, so that makes this prompt all the more appropriate!
If people stick to what they’ve said they’re doing for their posts, you can expect things spanning from Percy Jackson to Golden Kamuy and a bunch of other series in between.
Here’s the full schedule:
13th – Megan (Nerd Rambles)
20th – Takuto (Takuto’s Anime Cafe)
25th – Dale (That Baka Blog)
It’s a smaller tour this time, but as you can see, some of the posts have come out already so you can read them immediately. Aside from that, you can see what we did last year with the “believe” theme, which was centred around Kyoto Animation.
Take care of yourselves and #StayAtHome.
