First thing I would like to declare is that this is far from an original idea. Anitubers are releasing an space anthology thing this coming weekend. You can find that announcement here. Also, this blog tour’s title is copied from something. What is it from you may ask? Well….
Yes, I do constantly go back to my roots for some things. I can’t help it. Besides, it’s not a copyrighted qoute so I can use it too.
But anyway, I would like to have a tour focused on space and anime if anyone is interested. As DerekL pointed out in a tweet, the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. That date is July 20th and I’m aiming for starting the week after. So, the 22nd of July.
I know that some people are already interested in this (looking at you Irina and Will Sirius), but would anyone else be interested? Would a month be enough time? Please comment down below. I would like to create a twitter chat this weekend to get it started.
Why a blog tour? For the love and fun of it. I love space, anime with space, and so on. Do I need a larger reason then that?
For rules, I am going to keep this one as simple as possible. I try not to be too much of a stickler for rules to allow people to be as creative as possible.
Posts just need to be about anime and space. It can be as simple as characters looking up to the stars to guidance to the sailor stars to whatever space anime that you can think of. Trigun is another good example here because it doesn’t take place in space at all, but spaceships still effect the plot quite a bit. I guess it works for price of smiles too now that I think about it.
Space just needs to be apart of an anime that you want to write about somehow. How you write your post is completely up to you.
Please let me know if you are interested. The more the merrier and the more stops the better. Hoping to make this tour intergalacticly fun. (Edit: apparently I didn’t make this word to. Thanks to Aria for pointing this out.)
