5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2023 Week 32

Welcome to My 5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2023 Week 32!

Every week, I visit over 285 anime sites looking for posts that celebrate amazing moments in anime or otherwise blow me away with their wit and charm. These five posts are my favorite for the week! I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did!

You can see a list of the sites I check here: Massive List of Sites!

Anime Evo

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War – 18

For me, Bleach was one of those show that had a great cast of characters. The only drawback? A lot of those great characters never got their time in the sun! As I’ve watched Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation, I’m getting the feeling that the show wants to give some of those characters a shot at fame. That’s one of the reasons I like FlareKnight’s post on the site Anime Evo: it talks about a character who almost always got the short end of the stick. That character was Renji. What did the character do that was so great or cool or both? FlareKnight’s post will bring you up to date!

D&A Anime Blog

Why Cliff Grimoire Hates Rudeus So Much!

I’m having a blast watching and reviewing Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2. The characters are vivid and realistic. The world feels real. I could go on and on. In fact, the only thing I don’t like about it is that I have a hard time remembering everything that happened! Which, come to think of it, isn’t the show’s fault, is it?

There was a brief scene in a recent episode where Cliff Grimoire seemed to hate Rudy, though Rudy had no memory of meeting him. I wondered what that was about. I knew I should know! Then tonight, I came across Roderick J “Jay” Friz’s post on D&A Anime Blog — and it reminded me of everything I should have known! In fact, after reading this, I not only remembered what I’d seen before. I now knew some more important background details. So, if you’re as busy as I am and would like a refresher, this is the perfect post!


Unpopular Opinion: Kyokou Suiri

I like to read unique perspectives. I don’t want to read a post that tries to tell me what some writer thinks I want to read. I don’t want to read a rehash of someone else’s opinion. I have no interest in what some group-mind thinks, because here’s the thing: we interact with people, not facades or vague, faceless group minds.

Unique perspectives aren’t just fun to read. They signal to others that it’s okay to have a unique perspective. Both of these ideas are why I liked Spencer’s post on the site Mistakes Cheerio for Chesto. The post talks about what Spencer likes about In/Spectre. Sure, he mentions some of the same reasons I liked it. But reading the post, I sensed an authenticity that elevated the post over something I might have read on a commercial anime site. I’m not trying to say anything negative about those sites. Instead, I’m trying to say something positive about a more personal, more honest approach. I’m not saying this well — go read the post and see what I’m trying to say!

The Otaku Author

Corpse Princess: Aka (Season One)

How much did I enjoy Corpse Princess: Aka? I liked it so much I inducted it into the Caw of Fame! But we’re not here to talk about my opinion of the show (though, in case you missed me saying so, I liked it quite a bit!). Instead, I’d like to share Lynn’s post from The Otaku Author. I really like how he broke down the show and how he described what he liked about it. I’m saying that as someone who’s really picky about Shikabane Hime reviews. If I had a Crow’s World of Anime Seal of Approval, I’d award it to this post! While I think about how I might come up with such a thing, head on over and see what Lynn wrote!

Shallow Dives in Anime

The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat: Back and to the Left

The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat captured my attention because its main character, Lugh Tuatha Dé, started the series as a well-established, mature assassin. He wasn’t a high school student, he wasn’t a NEET — he was a fully functional adult. Well, insofar as a murderous assassin can be fully functional. There’s debate on that point. Still, I think you see what I’m getting at. He was atypical for an isekai protagonist.

If that were the only interesting thing about the show, I would likely have dropped it. Fortunately, it had a lot going for it. Talking about those things is why I liked Dewbond’s post on Shallow Dives in Anime. He touched on a lot of the things I liked about the show. He also mentioned some elements that he didn’t think quite came together. That brings up an interesting point: a show doesn’t need to be perfect to be enjoyable. And this show was very enjoyable. Please, go see why!
