Anime Reviewers Wanted!


Do you like anime? Interested in becoming part of The Escapist team? We just might have an offer for you.

The Escapist is looking for a team of five (5) anime fans within our community to review the latest titles to hit North American shores. If you’re interested in applying for the position, here’s what you need to do to make your case:

We’re looking for two review samples – choose any of the following anime titles to review:

Neon Genesis Evangelion
Cowboy Bebop
Spirited Away
Fullmetal Alchemist

Send us a long review (750 words), and a short review (200 words) – you can review the same anime for both, or choose to do a different one for each. Knowledge of the subject matter is as important as writing ability, so please only apply if you’re fairly well-familiar with anime – we’re looking for experts. Also keep in mind that you will be expected to meet assigned deadlines.

Please write the review samples in the word processing app of your choice – Microsoft Word preferred. Send them as attachments to john(at)escapistmag(dot)com . Be sure to include your Escapist forum username and real name in the body of the email, and the email subject must contain “Anime Review Position.” Applications must be submitted no later than 6:00 PM EST on Friday, March 20th, 2009.

This is an unpaid position – all of the anime will be provided for free, and is yours to keep! Review assignments will be decided at The Escapist’s discretion.

Due to format differences, this position is open to North America residents only.

If you have any questions about the position or the application, ask them in this forum thread, or PM CantFaketheFunk.
