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 favorites 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!
It’s been one of those weeks here at Crow’s World of Anime. I find myself contemplating the motivations I had for running a site the celebrates anime. The more I think about it, the I think it’s really very simple: I enjoy sharing the anime I love with you. The deeper meaning has to do with the question, “How much time to any of us have left on this planet?” We don’t know, do we? All the more reason to share what we love among ourselves.
That was the mindset I was in when I came across VIVIAN SCHEIBELEIN’s post on the site Animated Observations. It’s not that the review made me want to add Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 to my Backlog of Doom. It’s already there! Instead, the review made me realize that there is joy in sharing the experience of watching an anime that affects us! See if you get caught up in the post’s enthusiasm!
Episode 14 of Dr. Stone: New World Part 2 had a lot going for it — some of it very, very subtle. I wondered if I’d find a review this week that brought those things to light. Lo and behold, I found one! ERIC HIMMELHEBER, on the site Anime Corner, did a great job of breaking the episode dow. That includes one of my favorite scenes with Senkuu! See if ERIC HIMMELHEBER talked about the things you enjoyed in the episode!
Mach GoGoGo, or Speed Racer, as it was known when I watched it back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, doesn’t get much attention nowadays. That makes me sad, for two reasons. First, it reminds me that I watched it during its first US run, which makes me old. Second, I think it deserves more attention. Fortunately, I came across this post by Ethan Halker on the site Anime Herald, that began to address this problem. It not only brought up points I hadn’t considered. It made me rethink the show’s impact on anime culture in particular and the wider entertainment culture in general. I feel much better about the show after reading this!
I like reading posts that get me to thinking. Which is my colloquial way of saying I like reading posts that stimulate me intellectually. Which probably sounds worse. So I’ll quit while I’m behind. What I’m getting at is that I enjoy posts like this one by Merlin on the site Merlin’s Musings. I’ve written a lot about mercy versus justice on this blog, and Merlin’s post takes a look at that idea from another angle. If you’ve noticed the trend mentioned in Merlin’s title, I think you’ll really like the direction the post takes. See if I’m right!
I remember watching Blood-C. It was shortly after I finished Blood+ (whose second OP introduced me to Hyde’s Season’s Call — for which I’m eternally grateful!). When I watch a show, I make every attempt to open my imagination to what the artists offer me: the animators, musicians, writers, directors — everyone. This show overwhelmed me. There were scenes that to this day chill me to think about. So it was with delight that I read Jessi Silver’s post on Season 1 Episode 1 extolling the series. You might have read negative reviews of this show, but I can vouch for Jessi Silver’s perspective. She perfectly expressed what the show had going for it!
