Every week, I visit almost 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 favorites for the week! I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did!

5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts
Well, we’ve been able to see the first episode of The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3. I really wished I could review it this season, but, well, my plate runneth over. No, that’s a cup. My cup runneth over. Whatever runneth over, I couldn’t review it. Fortunately, Roderick J “Jay” Friz, on the site D&A Anime Blog, is much better at planning than I am. Or maybe he writes faster. Or, who am I kidding? It’s probably both! Whatever the case, Roderick J “Jay” Friz lays out his opinion on the first episode as someone who has obviously watched and understood the previous seasons. Is it worth watching? Head on over and find out!
It’s been over a year since Call of the Night ended. But you know what’s interesting? The show so captured my imagination that many of the details are as fresh as if I’d seen it just yesterday. Which might sound impressive until you take into account what my career stress does to my short term memory! Fortunately, Austin Harper, on the site Harper Anime Reviews, either did just watch it yesterday, or his memory’s crystal clear. Reading this review reminded me of a lot of what I loved about the series. It also reminded me of some details I hadn’t quite appreciated at the time. See if the review reminds you of what you liked about the show!
Remember me saying I wanted to review the latest season of Rise of the Shield Hero? Well, a crowded slate made that impossible — and it’s party SPY x FAMILY Season 2’s fault! There is no way I couldn’t not review this series. I could go on and on about what I liked about the episode (I mean, come on, the first episode is about Yor’s butt!), but instead, let me direct you to this post by Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime. She has a delightful knack for capturing characters, and she has a keen eye for the show’s sometimes nuanced (and sometimes not-so-nuanced) humor. See what she has to say about the latest episode!
The Ancient Magus’ Bride Season 2 Part 2 is also partially at fault for my full editorial calendar — and I could not be happier. Seeing Chise dealing with her over powered dragon arm (and knowing magic never giveth without also taketh-awaying… which doesn’t really sound right); seeing Philomela struggling against the hold her grandmother has on her… it’s all good stuff! It’s also great that Kvasir369, on the site Kvasir369, has decided to continue reviewing the series. His posts offer a clear synopsis, insightful review, and enlightening comparison to the magna, which helps me enjoy each episode more fully. See if you have a similar reaction!
the Eminence in Shadow Season 2 continues the sense of humor from the first season. It’s an acquired taste; it’s not something that will appeal to anyone. Actually, there’s a part of me that is very concerned about anyone who loves this series. As much as I do. Which kicks off some really entertaining inner dialogue! Yes, this show is right in my strike zone, and yes, as concerning as it may be, I really, really like its humor. It turns out that Sinh, on the site Otaku Sinh, also gets the humor, which is obvious for three reasons. First, just read the review — he celebrates the show’s comedic content and timing! Second, he uses the same kind of humor in his review. And third, check out the image captions. They’re as hilarious as the review itself!
