Welcome to My 5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2022 Week 32!
Every week, I check around 315 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!
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. “Sure. He picked a Re:CREATORS review. It’s in the Caw of Fame!” And you’re right — partially right. Yes, if you write a review of Re:CREATORS, I’m going to read it. Guaranteed. But as for including here, in my favorite blog posts? Well, that’s a different story. Far from being an automatic inclusion here, any post about Re:CREATORS faces a tremendous headwind. That’s because my standards for a Re:CREATORS’s is through the roof. You better bring your A game if you review this if you don’t want to risk my wrath. Well, okay, it’s not so much being wrathful as frowning at the screen when I read your post. But it will be a fierce frown!
I came across this post by Bluehawk on the site Anteiku Anime Reviews. He actually told me he was writing the review in the comments of my review of episode 3. And how do I think he did? Well, the answer is a bit anti-climatic, because I’m celebrating that post right now, aren’t I? But for the record: he nailed it. He talked about the characters, the plot, the animation — everything that made the series so much fun to watch. See if he captured what you liked about the series!
DoubleSama, on the site DoubleSama, continued his coverage of Made in Abyss Season 2, this time with a review of episode 5. The episode featured some major developments among Riko, Reg, Nanachi, and Vuelo Eluko. It also… well, I don’t want to give too much away. This review has a lot of good details, and I don’t want to spoil them. Also, the developments in this episode give DoubleSama a lot of room for conjecture, which is something this site does very, very well! And that’s in full display here. See what you think!
Call of the Night had a love hotel episode? Why, yes! And boy, was Kou surprised! Nazuna, well, let’s just say she wasn’t in the least bit surprised — or embarrassed! In fact, it evoked the love hotel episode from My Dress Up Darling. How did the two event compare? What else was interesting about the fifth episode? Jane the Anime Witch from the site The Magic Planet has some thoughts about both questions — which comes as no surprise, given her excellent track record! See if you agree with her analysis!
You know a sure way to catch my attention? Point out something about which I feel stupid, then explain how I’m not really stupid to think that way! It’s a simple trick (a little too simple, probably!), but it’s effective. This review by Traditional Catholic Weeb on the site The Traditional Catholic Weeb started out by pointing out that Azumanga Daioh looks an awful lot like Lucky Star — so much so that it’s easy to get them confused! At first I was like, “Wait, they’re different?” So, points to Traditional Catholic Weeb for putting me at ease! But I feel like I should subtract points — because my danged back log just got bigger by another series. Again! But it’s a good problem to have. See if you have a similar reaction!
The fourth episode of Call of the Night demonstrated something I think is really interesting about art: any given work exposes different facets to different people. The episode spoke to me in a certain way; last week, I celebrated a post from Jane the Anime Witch from The Magic Planet about what the episode said to her. And here we are yet again, this time with Vintagecoats’ perspective on the site Vintagecoats, with another unique and absorbing perspective. Are well are confused? Shouldn’t we agree? Hardly and no, respectively. That’s a sign of quality work. And while there may be similarities between our views, I find that understanding the show from another perspective is one of those life-enriching events. Yes. I just claimed a review can be life-enriching. Read the article to see what I mean!
