JEARETTAS is over, Thank god!

For the month of July 2017 I started a project called JEARETTAS, a project where I would have to release at least two anime episode reviews every day. I not only succeeded in this goal but I was also able to write a huge amount and sometimes release more than two posts a day. Not including the endings I wrote a total of 27,760 words for this project, making July by far my most prolific month.

I will list all of the posts here and then discuss the success and failings of the project.

Successes

JEARETTAS or “July’ke episodic anime reviews even though they all suck!” was intended to test myself and make fun of episodic anime reviewers simultaneously. I would do this through writing brilliant, decent and meme posts to make fun of anime summarisers to show them what an episode review should be like. I made sure to always include my own opinion and rarely include a summarisation as I wanted to continuously review instead of summarise. I did this better in some than others.

People seemed to like this approach as I had many viewers coming back, including some readers who seemed to give every single post I wrote a like! The one user who’s done this doesn’t appear to have their own blog so I can assume that it wasn’t done for advertising purposes.

My viewership and following surprisingly increased considering the stigma against normal episode reviews. I’d expected to lose a lot of readers but they surprisingly stayed and I’m grateful since a radical change in content such as this would definitely make me unfollow.

I unfortunately believe that if I put the same effort into releasing my normal style of posts I would have done much better because I think people appreciate the normal style so much more. I might potentially do another test in the future where I do a similar thing except with the style of normal posts so that I can see the difference.

Something that I’ve noticed is that it might not be the episode reviews that get attention and instead the popular currently releasing ones/ old popular ones. It makes sense but it makes me sad that good content can be overlooked just because it’s not from a show that someone might have heard of.

Failures

I don’t like to give out my statistics so I will just say that the only post in my top ten performing posts in July was my Shirt No Naka wa Kedamono Deshita Episode 1 Review which was fairly disappointing since it wasn’t nearly as good as the others.

My views doubled but my posts per month quadrupled so I think I’ve not performed as well as I could have done. As well as this my followers didn’t increase but that’s to be expected since I didn’t really stick with reviewing the same series. At least my number of likes tripled but since I made 69 posts (and some people still don’t think this month was a joke) and one person liked every single one I don’t think I can brag about this too much.

I tried and failed to review certain anime’s like CLANNAD and ANOHANA but, like always, couldn’t finish it too a level I was happy with. I really hate these drama anime’s so It’s annoying to not be able to express my thoughts without coming across as more of an asshole than I already do!

I made anime episode reviews for a month.

 

So overall JEARETTAS was pretty “meh”, my stats improved massively but not enough for me to think that it was worth it. I won’t be doing another JEARETTAS in July next year but I might do something similar. I will now leave you with the entire JEARETTAS photo gallery. Enjoy!
