Ani-Pock Proudly Presents: THE FIRST ANNUAL ANI-VERSARY AWARDS NIGHT
Hello, Pockers! And welcome to year number three of Ani-Pock!
I am pleased as pie to be a member of this unique and ever-changing community we call A-P!
A lot has happened in three years...
Why, Just this year, we saw the return of a lot of old members, the launch of new forums, three new blogs, a book talk, new A-P merchandise, and even a female version of Pocky!
While this has been a new and exciting year, we should take the time quickly and remember the people in the anime and Ani-Pock community who are no longer with us-
A moment of silence for them...
And now on with the awards!
This year an overwhelming majority of you chose your favorite post as what would forever be an A-P classic! Your choice for Ani-Pock Post of the Year is:
- Pocky's Sudden Change! The Ani-Pockette post!
2007 Was a year of great anime. This year delivered a lot of great new anime. Classics like Robotech and Gundam got new features, old favorites like Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni returned for another season, School Days had some NICE BOATS!, and autumn delivered a bevy of moe series!! Your choice for your Released Anime of 2007 is:
Leading up to the anniversary, we held a Name the Character Game. We didn't get a heckuva lot of response, but we did get a winner. And the winner of the Name the Character title is:
- Uh... the envelope is stuck shut on this one... Check back later... ^_^;;
And finally, this year I picked someone who went above and beyond in supporting the site, aside from Pocky, of course. Our first winner for Pocker of the Year goes to:
Since I revived Rin's wonderful Reveal Game again, he will advertise the week's contestant in the blog, every week, every contestant, without even being asked! He also looks through Mainichi News every day and pick out good articles for the site on the chat, even if no one is around to see them. He is a judicious mod, and an all around good guy. Post your acceptance speech below, Kami! ^_^
And, before we close, we have from our archives a pic of our Ani-Pock mascot (left), before teh infamous Wolfie! No doubt you saw our "Wan-kun Wolfie" on the splash screen when you came to the site, done by the talented Purly. Well here we have the original, by Kaoru. As well as Ogi's interpretation of the unwilling Wolfie cosplayer prototype (right)!
Gotta love 'em.
Happy birthday Ani-Pock! Three years and nearly 3 million visitors!
Stay tuned, we have a lot coming up this year too!
Be sure to check all of the blogs, each has a new post today!
