#TheJCS Jon Spencer showcase: June 2021 Edition

Hello everyone. As the title says, this is the June edition of the the Jon Spencer Showcase. What is that? Well, it’s a monthly special event around the blogosphere and other content creators from different parts of the internet. So what I am doing is that I am sharing a lot of interesting posts that other people choose to be the favorite things they’ve produced the month before this. What I am saying is that this is the best of the best from creative people who know what they are doing when advertising themselves. If you want another example of this, Jack Scheibelein ran the May edition of #TheJCS on animated observations. You can read that post here: Link

This month, you are all getting an internship into Celestial Being. I was wondering about what creative thing that I could pull for this month and this is what came to mind. Why? Because it’s Gundam and it’s fun. Why not join a rebellious group to create peace in the world by fighting. Sounds like the cool thing to do especially since it comes with space ships and giant robots. With that comes into splitting every piece of media that were provided into different categories. How? Well, you will see how soon. Let’s dive into this session finally.

Links are bolded!


These people are upfront and talk about anime in different ways which is similar to the multiple ways on how to do it. These people are perfect people to become Gundam Meisters. (Plus, we might need some meat shields….so….)

  1. Hey Jon, thanks for the mention! Atelier Shallie isn’t the last Atelier game thankfully, though it is the last of its trilogy within the larger series. Atelier is admittedly ordered in a confusing way.

    It’s great to see everyone’s excellent work compiled here as well. Thanks!

Please take this as me doing that thing where you bow down on the ground to someone until your head is touching the floor.
