It’s been a few months now since we relaunched with an expanded reach, covering not only non-Nintendo video games but Japanese anime as well! We hope you’ve been enjoying our coverage of UK anime releases just as much as our usual Pokémon posts – perhaps to the point of even wanting to make some yourself? If so, then you’re in luck! We’re currently looking for a volunteer to join our team of anime reviewers!
This isn’t going to be one of those job listings requiring five years of experience for an entry-level post. After all, we’re all volunteers not doing this for money (which is great because there isn’t any – even for me), but out of love. None of us were great writers to begin with, so you don’t have to be either – while we can’t pay you in currency, we can offer you guidance and an outlet to help you develop your skills.
If you’re still with us, here is a complete list of requirements:
- A passion for Japanese anime and a desire to spread that across the world!
- Free time and the willingness to review titles (for reference, the average 12-episode series has a 5 hour run-time. Episode counts of releases can greatly vary, however).
- Residency in the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland.
- Access to a Region B blu-ray disc player.
- A desire for more than just free stuff – if you just want advance copies or swag, look elsewhere.
- Preference of Rem over Emilia (Crusch is also acceptable).
(Not actually required but would be beneficial).
If that all checks out and you would like to apply to join the Tanuki Bridge team as an anime reviewer, the process is simple:
…Okay, maybe not that simple:
- Write a 500-1000 word review for an anime of your choice, that was either released on home video or legally streamed to the UK within the last six months.
- Email it to josh[@]tanukibridge.com with the subject header “Tanuki Bridge Anime Reviewer Application”. (Remove the “[” and “]” – I just don’t want robots trying to hit on me. You’ve seen Plastic Memories, right? :P).
- Optional: Name your Love Live! School Idol Project or Love Live! Sunshine!! Best Girl.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Best of luck – we look forward to you hopefully joining our team!
