Welcome to My 5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2022 Week 37!
Every week, I check around 330 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!
There’s just never enough time in the day to do everything we want to do, is there? I have to balance a family, a main (money-producing) career, and a secondary career writing novels before I can get to my tertiary career, which is this anime site. That means that every season, more and more anime gleefully leap onto my back log. But you know what? That’s fine. If I can ever retire, I know there’s a high probability that I won’t be bored!
Reading the anime reviews that come out every week helps in a major way: they help me prioritize my backlog. That’s just what this post by Jayke on the site Anime Bird did for the movie The Secret World of Arrietty. It’s from Studio Ghibli, with all of the quality that implies (and, apparently, delivers!). I enjoyed reading what Jayke liked about the movie. It gave me a sense that this was a movie that I would not only like. I would likely find it uplifting. See what you think!
You can probably tell from my reviews how much I’m enjoying Lycoris Recoil. Which is to say, a lot. Another thing I enjoy is reading insightful and witty reviews about it. That’s exactly what I’ve been getting with the coverage FlareKnight has been giving this series on the site Anime Evo. I can’t generated suspense by saying you should read his review to see if he liked episode 10. That’s a given by this stage of the season. The question is: what did he like about it an d how much? Did he like the same things you did? Head on over to Anime Evo and find out!
I generally try not to feature the same websites two weeks in a row. I’m trying to spread the love, after all! But, someones a blogger writes someone that I find irresistible, and I just have to celebrate it. The Overage Otaku just did that on the site Confessions of an Overage Otaku. This week, The Overage Otaku talks about one of my favorite series, Zombie Land Saga, and do you know what? As much as I already adore that series, he made me appreciate it even more. What did he say? There’s one way to find out!
Let me just get this out of the way to set the context: I watched, and enjoyed, both Oreimo and Eromanga Sensei. There. I said it. And I’m not ashamed! There are very good reasons to like both shows, as this post by Jon Spencer on Jon Spencer Reviews points out. There are also reasons you might not like the shows — as this review also points out. So, which is it? Are the shows enjoyable to watch or not? Jon Spencer has a great analysis, so to find out, you know what you need to do!
I’m a little surprised, looking back over my old posts. I haven’t talked about Cross Ange. Which is strange, because I loved the show so much the fan-fiction I’ve come up with is probably twice the length of the series. If I ever published it. Which I won’t. Because even I’m not that cruel.
But I digress. I loved the series, and I’ve been thinking about reviewing it as part of my throw-back reviews (I’m reviewing Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun this season). Dewbond, on his site Shallow Dives in Anime, just published this review of the series. And damn it, now I want to rewatch it! Again! But until I do, I can enjoy reading Dewbond’s unabashed take on what made the series so much fun to watch. And guess what? You can enjoy reading it, too!
