Happy 6th Birthday Reverse Thieves!

We have two major State of the Union moments built into the blog. We might casually examine what we are doing with the blog countless times during the year but we have two inventories, one in the summer and one in the winter. And so it is time for our birthday assessment.

On our 6th year we don’t have that many new and innovative sections. The Type-Moon Roundup was added to the almost always neglected Saturday spot. It was mostly an outgrowth of the All Points Bulletin. It just seemed that there was always enough entries that we might as well highlight it. Narutaki also started posting wallpapers. She makes them all the time for herself so it just seemed like a simple idea for her to just share them with the readers.

Other than that it has been business as usual. Hisui has been doing a bunch of solo panels at conventions. The post count per week fluctuates but has been fairly good, staying at four+ posts per week on a regular basis.  The Speakeasy is still rolling right along and the S.W.A.T. Reviews have gained a good amount of listeners over the past couple of season.

The good ship Reverse Thieves still has a strong tailwind pushing it on its course.

In many ways, year six feels the most calm thus far. No big innovations or surprises. And maybe that is for the best. We haven’t stopped trying to innovate on the blog. We recently had a long conversation about what trends we should perhaps be capitalizing more on and which are worth ignoring. It is just that the blog has found its voice enough that radical changes are not constantly necessary.

Watch. Next month we will start a live streaming 3-D interactive battle network or some such nonsense. Then this post will look very silly.


It is our birthday, but we give the presents! Here is how you can win a red dragon’s horde worth of treasure which includes mounds of DVDs and manga plus many other trinkets:

Leave a comment letting us know what your favorite section on the blog is and let us know what you’d like to see more of on Reverse Thieves.*

Entries are due by Saturday, July 13th. The winner will be notified on Sunday, July 21st. U.S. residents only.

(*As with anytime we solicit opinions from our readers we reserve the right to ignore any and all silly ideas. Because this blog always has been and always will be a Narutacracy.)

    Congrats on finishing up six long years! Metanorn recently celebrated its fifth so I feel the coming-up-with-new-stuff-every-year pressure. But we should do this until we are having fun and seeing both of your enthusiasm, I can clearly see you still are. Keep on rock and rolling along with those TM updates! :3

    Congrats. Your blog has nearly reached the age of reason!

    I look foward to your podcasts and SWATs. They’re always topical and each of good length for their purposes.

    I enjoy reading the Ongoing Investigations sections. It is particularly pleasant reading opinions in the video games section and would like to see more coverage on them along with perhaps some more analytical extrapolation on the intellectual anime series that are currently airing at the time;

    Does the podcast count?

    I would say that my favorite section of the site is the APB. First, because I just like an creative title for a blog post, and secondly, as someone who has many geeks, it’s enjoyable to peek at what you guys are consuming besides anime.

What are you thinking?
