Welcome to My 5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2022 Week 49!
Every week, I visit about 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 writes a lot of those 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!
I have to say a public thanks again to Vance who suggested that I watch Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury. I had skipped it for the regular reason: not enough time. But man, am I glad I started watching. The most recent episode I’ve seen, episode 8, had everything I like about the series. But instead of me talking about it, let me direct your attention to KVASIR369’s post on the site 369Kvasir. KVASIR369 not only talked about all the episode’s anime goodness, but he brought his trademark analysis — which I always enjoy. I bet you will, too! Oh, and the screen cap he used? Absolute perfection.
MOMOMANAMU’s post on Anime Hanabi gave me a huge challenge: I really, really want to talk about the third series that the post features. But I don’t want to spoil the surprise! Argh! So instead of ruining the fun, I’ll just say this: I like list posts. I’ve come to respect them because of one simple reason: it’s really hard to come up with an interesting list that hasn’t been done to death! And that’s just what MOMOMANAMU did! I love the idea of a Pro Shoppers list! It’s a good one, too! See if you like the shows in the list!
I’m really looking forward to the The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie. It looks like it hit North America today (when I’m writing this anyway) in theaters. I’ll wait until it comes to a streaming service I subscribe to. In the meantime, I can get a handle on how good the movie is by reading reviews like this one by Samuru on the site Beneath the Tangles. This review did something that amazed he: it gave enough details to get me excited to see the movie, but didn’t give away any surprises! That’s tough, especially given what’s supposed to happen in this movie. Give it a read to see what I mean!
I’ve spoken before about how much I enjoy reading Irina’s posts on I Drink and Watch Anime. She has a real knack for presenting her ideas in an amazingly approachable way. It doesn’t matter how complex the topic; she breaks it down effortlessly and invites us along for the ride. I don’t think I’ve mentioned another aspect of her posts that I like: her titles! Take the title of her review of the latest SPY x FAMILY episode, for example. That title is just genius. It’s one of those things I wish I had come up with! The rest of the post is every bit as entertaining. But don’t take my word for it! See for yourself!
Can you believe it? We’ve gone through four posts without mentioning my backlog! I know, it’s astonishing. I think I need to sit down for a bit. Or keep sitting. Or something. Anyway, here’s another title for my backlist. This time, it’s Merlin’s turn, on the site Merlin’s Musings, to make me want to watch a series so much that I toss it onto my backlog. This time, the series is Black Summoner, and based on Merlin’s description, it sounds like something that would be just stupid fun to watch. I think those kinds of shows are underrated. Sometimes, I just want to watch something to make me laugh. See if Merlin’s description sounds like something you’d want to watch!
