    About the draft, does it have to be a review or a summary? Do you prefer I write about an anime I liked or would a mostly negative review also work?

    1. Eva

      All we want you to do to is write an entry as you would if you were posting it to your own blog. 🙂

  2. Fizzy

    are these writers paid at all? i’m assuming not, but i thought i’d check.

    1. Eva

      No. We do this for fun.

  3. Blank

    When will you guys be starting up your applications again

    1. Eva

      It is difficult to say since the situation/need for writers can change at any given moment.

      For the time being we are full, but you are welcomed to send us your application.
      If you do, we will put you on the “On-Hold” List, so when we do open up again, we will contact you immediately to verify if you are still interested. 🙂

    Um…. I know the requirement says Word but my computer is messed up at the moment. I do have a Kindle (which I am using right now). If I use my Kindle will it work?

    1. Eva

      Hi, sorry for the late reply! I don’t have a kindle, so I don’t know how it would work, but Google Docs are now also acceptable (which as been added to the post, I had forgotten to put it in when I updated this post).

      1. Vamoss

        Okay, thanks! I’ll get to work on the Submission ASAP.

    Absoulutley new to blogging but I’m not new at sharing my thoughts so I’m kind of nervous but extremely excited to see if I would be a good fit for AAB. I’ve recently decided to make my own blog for fun (haven’t finished setting it up yet) but this blog is a great representation of what I would like to accomplish. I just want somewhere to share my thoughts with people who would like to hear them. I’m not writing this to persuade you guys or anything lol, just trying to get into the swing of emptying my mind to someone other than my couple of friends. I will be legitimately applying before the deadline so I hope to meet the requirements so that I can gain this wonderful experience!! Thank you gals/guys, I hope you have a great day/week/month! See ya soon!!

    1. Eva

      Thank you for the interest of joining our team, we look forward to your future application. 🙂

    The status said “open”, but it’s already passed the deadline. Is there any plan yet when you’ll open for writer recruitment again?

    1. Eva

      My apologies for the confusion! I forgot to change the year to 2021. DX The next deadline is May 2021.
      So as long as [OPEN] is still up, we’re still accepting applications even when it’s past the deadline. When we are full or are not accepting applications, then I’ll put up [CLOSED].

      1. Kazanova

        One more question, would it be okay if a new writer write reviews of anime/manga/game/etc that have been written up by other writers but permanently discontinued/unfinished? Or the same anime title but different installment like the movie/OVA version?

        1. Eva

          Yes new writers are permitted to rescue series that have been dropped, and can cover alternative installments like Movies and OVA.

  7. Nagia

    For the ones written in Google Docs, are Introduction & Application the only ones included, or Your Main, Reason, Experience and Entry Sample all also included in the Google Doc?

    1. Eva

      Yes everything is to be included in the Google Doc 🙂

  8. Mikan

    Should “Main, Reason and Experience” go in the google docs file or straight in the email?

    1. Eva

      Google Docs please, but you can include in the email as well if you like. 🙂

  9. Tevin Aduma

    Hai hai, not gonna geek out but please do email when yo have free slots for new writers.

    1. Eva

      We still accept applications when we are closed. We will put you on the “On-Hold” List when you do. So please email us your application so that I know to contact you when we are open again. 🙂

    It’s been a while since I last sent a message and I know that the staff team of angryanimebitches doesn’t always have the time to write back ot everyone but I would like to know if anyone plans to cover these past anime’s on the site of they has enough staff or even any members will to do summaries for the series and episodes on these series that have aired in the past year or so.

    Will anyone have time to do some coverage and feedback on the following movies and Anime Tv series with their episodes if it interest anyone at the moment?:

    The Vision of Escaflowne
    Fairy Ranmaru
    Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! LOVE! season 2
    Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! OVA/OAD
    Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie Parts one and two
    Prétear AKA Prétear – The New Legend of Snow White

    If anyone has taken an interest to cover some of those not-so-new anime’s I hope to see summaries covered by anyone from the AAB team.

    1. Eva

      Hey Smcandy! 😀 Nice to see you! 😀 Hope you have been well!

      The Vision of Escaflowne has been covered in a Random Review by one of our older writer Tenderfoot.

      Nikolita also covered the English Dub of The Vision of Escaflowne 2016 of episode 1-4. You you can check those two out by clicking the links I attached here.

      Oki covered the seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal, but not the movies with the exception of Sailor Moon R.

      I really need to finish fixing the categories since it broke on us when we did the migration, but the search menu is a lot more handy if you’re curious about any particular titles of interest. All of the images prior to 2020 are broken for the same reason unless they have been manually restored by the respective writers (provided they still have the files to fix them, or were still on the team at the time).

      Currently we are not taking requests, and I know a lot of us have our hands full at the moment. But we will certainly keep these suggestions in mind in case anyone is up to doing some retro coverages and are looking for some ideas.
