Update 6/9/15

Hey guys. So I sincerely apologize that I had to take a few days of personal time. I had the blog post ready and everything but I needed time off. I was not in a mind set to post but I am back. A furry friend I grew close to over the last almost six months is no longer with us as his struggle with cancer has ended. I didn't mean for such a sad experience affect my jobs but it did. So let's all take a moment of silence for all the furry friends we grow to love no matter how short the time we have to spend with them.

Moving forward with this week's blog post, let's recap the last month and I have another Voice Actor Spotlight for you.

May Recap

I think the most notable thing that was posted on Kat's Anime Corner in May 2015 was my Sword Art Online review. It was one of the more popular posts. I actually did something different with the SAO review in that I recapped the arcs rather than the series as a whole. I'm not sure if it was as effective as my regular reviews, but I certainly liked it. Plus I went back to my old styling of doing a review by itself rather than paired with a second piece much like I did for the Death Note review I posted last week. What were your thoughts on the SAO review?

I also set a top 10 list for the Spring OP's. I can't wait for December/January when I can release my top 40 list like I did at the beginning of this year. The following week I did something different. Instead of presenting MY opinion on characters, I sat down with my little sister and wrote lists of her top favorite characters from certain anime series. I would love to do such things with others but I have very few people I can talk to. I don't foresee any blogs like that in the near future because Chelsie is moving in August and I don't have friends who live near me that I can talk about this with. However if you want to see more blogs like this, I am more than willing to reach out to people to help do blogs.

Anyway, May was a short month for me because it was so very busy. The coming months shall be busy as well but we will see how well I can manage my time.

Let's move on to our next segment.

VA Spotlight: 

Colleen Clinkenbeard

The Queen of Voice Actors! If you don't love at least ONE of Colleen's roles, you must not watch a lot of English Dub anime. The first time I heard The Clinkenbeard's voice was in D. Gray-Man as Miranda Lotto and then again in Rosario+Vampire as Inner Moka. Colleen is a voice actor, ADR Director, writer, and line producer for FUNimation. She has been acting since 2004. At the age of 35, she has a fair number of roles under her belt. 

I bow down to the queen of anime.
