Welcome to My 5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2022 Week 30!
Every week, I check around 325 anime sites looking for posts that celebrate amazing moments in anime or otherwise blow me away with their wit and charm. The ani-blogging community constantly produces a lot of amazing posts. I hope this list helps you find some of them!
You can see a list of the sites I check here: Massive List of Sites!
One of the things I like about Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun is its richness. But its richness can make it tough to catch all of the subtexts in a single viewing. I don’t know about you, but I barely have time to watch these shows once. Watching them more than that, even if it’s necessary to form a complete understanding, just isn’t happening. That’s why I like reviews like this from DoubleSama on the site DOUBLESAMA. DoubleSama has a knack for presenting a clear interpretation of what happened. Even better, DoubleSama often discusses different interpretations for events or character motivations! That helps me appreciate an episode even more. See if it does the same for you!
The plot of Call of the Night’s third episode seemed pretty simple. Which sounds boring, right? Well, to me at least, it was anything but. And I found someone else who not only didn’t think it was boring, but could actually say why! That person is Jane the Anime Witch and the site is The Magic Planet. If I had to describe Jane the Anime Witch’s trademark, it would be unraveling the gestalt. She takes the episode, anchors it in space/time, and then unwinds its beauty and meaning for us, right there on the page. Or post. I guess I shouldn’t be so paper-centric. Though I guess a website can have a page… Anyway, if you want a deeper appreciation of the third episode of Call of the Night, you know what to do!
If you read my reviews of Princess Connect! Re: Drive Season 2, then you know my position on the series. I suspect strongly that it’ll end up in the Caw of Fame some day. From the very first episode when we saw the look of profound longing on Pecorine’s face, I knew season 2 was going to be something special. And do you know who else thought the season was worthwhile? neverarguewithafish on the site Never Argue with a Fish, that’s who! He captured some of the highlights that made the season so amazing. My only complaint? He didn’t talk enough about Labyrista. But then, that’s probably impossible. So don’t let that stop you from checking out the article!
If you’re like me, when you first hear the title “Bodacious Space Pirates,” the last thing that would come to mind is strong, intelligent, and interesting female characters. Okay, maybe “interesting,” but in a bodacious way. And that reminds me of a man I used to know years ago would would often discuss the wonders of “bodacious ta-tas.” Which apparently isn’t a well-known phrase. I suspect that’s actually a good thing.
Anyway, when I accidentally started watching the series in ancient times (i.e., pre-COVID), I was shocked — shocked, I say — to see it was in no way bodacious. In fact, it was one of the stronger science fiction series that I’ve seen. The characters surprised me, too. And that’s not all! But instead of listening to me ramble on, please let me direct you to this post by TakaTempest Reviews on the site TakeTempest Reviews. He lays out exactly what makes this show worth watching. If you haven’t seen it, see if his review makes you curious about the show. And if you’ve seen it, see if his review talks about what you liked in the series!
Three things jump to mind when I think of the series The Perfect Insider: its OP, its ED, and its intricate central mystery. The OP featured wireframes of the three main characters. There’s a spot where the wireframe representing Moe Nishinosono flips her hair as she dances. It’s a movement that looks so natural, and so inviting, that it’s what I remember most about the series!
But the series had a lot more to offer than that. As proof, please let me recommend you check out Fred’s post on his site This is my place. The Perfect Insider had a unique charm that came from an interesting combination of factors. I thought it was cool that Fred presented those elements in a clear, entertaining way! See if he discusses what you liked about this series.
