It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve written an OWLS post. April seemed never ending to me!
Something exciting: I’m nearing my one year anniversary with OWLS! I joined this group near the end of May last year, and I wrote my first OWLS post on June 22nd. It feels like I only joined this group yesterday, but as they say, time flies when you’re having fun.
If you aren’t aware, this post is a part of a blog tour OWLS has every month with a different topic. We are a group of loving anime fans who want to spread positivity for all people through pop culture and anime! We are non-discriminant against anyone regardless of their race, gender, sexuality, etc.
I was quite excited when I saw what this month’s prompt was, and it happened to tie right into the show I was invested in during sign ups. I was about halfway through my watch of it at the time, and I just finished it Saturday night! Luckily, the second season was perfect for this.
This month’s prompt is:
We join movements, organizations, and systems that align with our own personal values and beliefs. Sometimes we join these groups because they believe in doing good and making positive changes in society. However, these movements can turn sour when a dictator arises or behind the good intentions, there’s a hidden agenda of oppression. It is in these groups that individuals start to shape their identities by questioning their values and beliefs or conforming to the system. This month, we will be examining “real and/or fictitious” movements, organizations, or systems in anime and other pop culture mediums, and the positive and negative effects they have on individuals and society.
