    I know it’s full but I decided to make an application and send it to you anyways ^w^ … Ah also, there is one typing error in the email (sorry >.<) but none in the actual word document.

    1. Eva

      Don’t worry about the typo, it happens :3 Thank you for applying!

  2. Vange Chandran

    Quick question, for my application, should the attached Word Document have only the sample review? Or should it also contain the subject, nickname, reason, and experience?

    1. Vantage

      Include everything, it’s much easier that way 😀

  3. extremesomething

    I wish I had discovered this site earlier so I could write for you guys before it closed

    1. Eva

      Thank you for your interest!

  4. Ravaiel

    Is the recruitment still closed? I’ve noticed there is no info about 2015.

    1. Eva

      It is presently still closed.

      1. Ravaiel

        Thanks for the clarification. Can I still send you my application for future consideration?

        1. Eva

          Yes you can, and it will be on-hold until we open again (but I don’t know when that would be).
          I always send a notice when we are open again to make sure you are still interested/available :3
          If you still choose to submit it, I will be looking forward to your application. ^ v ^ /

          1. Ravaiel

            Alright then. Application sent. Looking forward to a positive answer in the future. ^_^
            I didn’t know if you had any guidelines on how to write a sample piece (at least I didn’t notice anything here), so I went with a gut feeling when I was working on it. Hope that’s okay. 🙂

  5. Ravaiel

    I’m sorry if it’s a double post of some kind, but I don’t see my other comment anywhere here, so I’m guessing it did’t post.

    I’ve decided to submit my application but my mail service seems to have a problem with delivering messages to info@angryanimebitches.com. Is there an alternative e-mail I can send my application to?

    1. Eva

      I apologize for the late reply! I bet it has to do with the server host’s maintenance going on. You can submit it to our back-up: wanna.be.a.writer.aab@gmail.com, once the main email is back online, I’ll forward it.

  6. lilgamergal

    Am I still able to submit? Or no D: I can write more since EXAMS OVER WOOHOO! Well almost… But I have secen exams left so I can put time here

    1. Eva

      You can still submit 🙂 You will be put on-hold until we open again.
      ^ v ^ / I hope the exams went well!

  7. Tenshi

    Oh my goodness, it’s actually open:D Yay! I’d love to submit an application but first I need to make sure that I’m up for it! Quick question: is there certain date where you’re closing recruitment? Thanks!

    Oh one more concern- I heard something (well read) that Eva had a health condition? Is this something new or an old ongoing thing, because I’m not sure I remember hearing about it…Oh, of course if it’s too personal, there’s no need to answer. I just want to make sure you’re ok.:( Either way, I hope that you get better!:)

    1. Eva

      We close recruitment 5 – 7 weeks before a new season begins, so it would be between August and September for the FALL.

      Back in 2012 I was diagnosed with Tendonitis in both of my wrists (it actually started late 2011 but I didn’t realize the severity at the time), and I was forced to go on a 9 months hiatus due my hands and wrists being essentially crippled (MOST UNPRODUCTIVE 9 MONTHS OF MY LIFE). Tendonitis is a condition where you have if you abuse the injury too much, it will become permanent damage. That’s why it is very important to manage it properly, understand the limitations and know when to take a break in order to rest properly. Ever since I have to wear splints at the computer to reduce the swelling or when I am lifting heavy objects because I no longer have the strength to do so (it is even exhausting to do simple things like patting a dog’s tummy). That is why it is crucial to rest properly without straining it further.

      Symptoms to watch out for are tender tendons, your arm will feel hard and heavy like a rock with an icky bubbly sensation and may hurt or pinch by the slightest touch. You will experience pinches similar to pins and needles often caused by it going numb and you will often feel exhausted, drained because of the pain.

      If your wrists and/or fingers start bothering you with pinches or numbness, that’s when you should grab a pair of wrist splints and see if it helps. If it continues to persist and gets worse, make a doctor appointment to get a check up. Had I caught onto this earlier it may not have gotten this bad. That’s why I am always open to sharing my experience so that others can learn more to know what the red flags are if god forbid it happening to them too.

      1. Tenshi

        Ok, thank you!

        Oh no that’s horrible. 🙁 I’m sure that must suck. Thank you for the information though.However, it’s very impressive that you can still blog with this condition. I can see why you need to take a break, definitely don’t strain yourself I hope that your tendonitis gets better. ~_~ I’ll be praying for you to get better.

    Can I still submit?

    1. Eva

      Yes, we are open 🙂

  9. Tenshi

    Sorry, just for clarification, do you title the email the subject or the document (or both). And does everything go into the attached document, so that nothing required actually goes into the email message itself? Thanks:)

    1. Eva

      Yes title both please. Be sure to include your name in the doc title so I can keep track of who is who. The email doesn’t need to have any content, you can just say hi and that’s it (some leave it entirely blank) since the application is what we need. 🙂

      1. Tenshi

        Ok thanks:)

    Just wondering if you have been getting a lot of applications ?

    1. Eva

      Yes we have, but do send us yours if you are interested!

  11. lgg

    If we sent an app, and we got no reply-does it mean that we werent accepted? (/w\)

    1. Eva

      No, I always send a reply to let you know we have received it and inform you of our present status. Then once we have reviewed the application/open up again, I send you a second email/reply with the results or a follow up (if you were put on-hold) to make sure you are still interested.

      By any chance, have you sent us one and have not received a reply? If you did, please let me know if the email you have put in for the comment is the same you have applied with so I can do a thorough search.

      1. lgg

        Okay, I did send an app (im hoping it went through o.o) and its the email I put down now. Are you able to let me know if its there? x.x

  12. lgg

    Okay that was the wrong email sorry Dx its the one I put now (lil) I just checked it

    1. Eva

      Sorry for the delayed the response, I missed this comment.
      Let me know if/when you send one again, and I will be able to confirm here whether or not we have received it. Just make sure you are using the same email as you are using here to add a comment so I can match it.

    1. Eva

      Hi Wombat, when the applications are closed I don’t check it as often so it varies. Usually I response within a week of the date it has been sent.

    Does it has to be an anime? How about manga?

    1. Eva

      Since Anime is our main subject, it is required for writers to cover anime.
      Manga, Videogames and others are the only subjects that are optional to contribute to.
