I am not one to make any promises, or specific goals, but I do have a general idea of things that will be happening here at CAM for 2020. It will mostly be business as usual, why fix what is working, but I have ideas of the general direction of where I will be heading this coming calendar year.
First, I had a request for Legendary Armor: Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors, so that will be coming up soon. I never finished Samurai Troopers and even though I was aware of Ronin Warriors, I never watched it… until now. Fun show! Next, I want to include more titles from the greater collective of The World Masterpiece Theater. I have a couple entries already on this site (Anne of Green Gables and Little Princess Sara), but I also have access to another handful. I have enjoyed these shows and consider them to be a lost treasure in the world of anime. A couple even include the talents of one or both of these very popular gentlemen, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata…
Speaking of Studio Ghibli, the only films I have listed here on site are Grave of Fireflies and even though it’s not technically Ghibli, it still counts, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. When I get to #200 expect to see one of the three other 80s Ghibli titles be highlighted that day. Also, a little out of left field, but I can make it work, I am going to include two (or maybe more if it works out) live action films that are key influencers, or even adaptations of classic anime titles. Spoilers, one will be Streets of Fire and the second Lady Oscar, a live action adaptation of Rose of Versailles.
Beyond that it will be my usual randomness. In total I want to reach the 500 mark in regards to anime entries here at CAM. That will take a few more years though, but 2020 will add another good selection to the listing… reaching 250 by the end of the year is a possibility.
Stay safe everyone.
