Five Favorite Posts from 2023 Week 51

Anime Ataraxia

12 Days of Anime 2023 – Day 08: Inda Karane

There I was, innocently minding my own business, when I came across this post by Dewbond on Twitter. I hadn’t given The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, Really Love You a second thought. I’m not sure why; maybe I just wasn’t in a comedy mood. It couldn’t be that I wasn’t in the mood for a harem series. That’s just not possible. But whatever the reason, after reading Dewbond’s post, I checked out the series. And laughed my butt off.

So when I came across this post by FabledHunter on the site Anime Ataraxia about Inda Karane, one of the first characters we meet in the series, I had to stop and check out it. And I’m glad I did! FabledHunter captured the essence of what makes Inda Karane so much fun to watch. The post made me want to binge watch the rest of the series, which would be great if I had the time. Which I don’t. But I had time to read this post, and I hope you do, too!


Ancient Magus Bride: Season 2 – Episode 24 Review [Season Review]

If you liked The Ancient Magus’ Bride Season 2 Part 2 even half as much as I did, you’ll take one look at the featured image from this post that KVASIR369 wrote on the site Kvasir369, and you’ll know. You’ll just know that KVASIR369 absolutely gets this show. That one shot captured the defining moment in the whole season. But that’s not all KVASIR369 got right. I adored this episode, and reading KVASIR369’s post was like reliving the best moments of the episode. Not only that, but KVASIR369 even threw in a comparison of the manga to the anime! Seriously, if you liked the series at all, you’ll love this post.


Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End: Episode 16 – “Long-Lived Friends”

Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End is one of those series. You know: the ones who come in all hyped up to the point where you wonder, “Can it really live up to those expectations?” By all accounts, the answer’s yes, which is good to see. I hate it when a show face-plants! I came across this post by Lesley Aeschliman on the site LESLEY’S ANIME AND MANGA CORNER, and Lesley Aeschliman’s insights about the current episode got me excited to watch it — particularly the parts about Kraft. Go see if Lesley Aeschliman talked about your favorite aspects of the episode!

Otaku Sinh

The Most Brilliant Next Step in Isekai! The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 Episode 12 [Review]

Earlier, I mentioned how KVASIR369 understands The Ancient Magus’ Bride Season 2 Part 2. So much so, in fact, that it reminds me of how much Otaku Sinh gets The Eminence in Shadow Season 2. As evidence, please let me present Otaku Sinh’s post from the site Otaku Sinh. This post describes everything that was good about the last episode — which is to say, pretty much everything in the last episode! Not only that, Otaku Sinh included his signature parallel narrative image captions, which were hilarious. Head over to the post and prepare to be entertained!

Shallow Dives in Anime

The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season: It’s their World, Cid’s just LARPing in It.

Turns out there’s another blogger who also gets The Eminence in Shadow Season 2, and that’s Dewbond from the site Shallow Dives in Anime. Dewbond took a slightly different approach to reviewing the final episode by focusing on the world-building, especially as it impacts characters like Rose and Alpha. After the literary high I experienced watching that last episode, reviews from bloggers who understood the show and what it offered were exactly what I was looking for. Needless to say, this post hit the spot! See if you agree!

  1. I also forgot that Roswaal, who existed in the same time period Satella did, said that Emilia shares the same lineage as the Witch of Envy, which means that Emilia and Satella have a common ancestor. Whether Emilia is a clone of Satella’s, a doppelganger of Satella’s, or Emilia and Satella are both doppelgangers of another half-elf from a period from before the time period of 400 years ago remains to be seen.

    1. And I mean whether Emilia’s body is a clone of Satella’s remains to be seen, rather than Emilia being a clone of Satella’s.

    2. Every time I think of the tapestry of backstory behind Re:ZERO, I’m more impressed. It’s some seriously good stuff. I have no idea how you keep track of as much of it as you do — that’s not an easy thing to accomplish!

      1. Well, many people have so many details they have to remember about family members and friends. I don’t really have strong relationships with friends or family, so it leaves me a lot of room to remember details of things I’m passionate about. This is not me bragging by the way as I don’t intend for this to come across as bragging.

      2. And I forgot that I have posted on your blog in the past that Emilia could be Satella’s twin sister. We saw in Season 2 that Ryuzu Meyer had been cryogenically frozen for hundreds of years, and that could perhaps explain the discrepancy between Emilia and Satella if early on in Emilia’s development, like say when she was a fetus, she was frozen. As for people even chose to do that to Emilia, I have no clue.

        1. The mystery of exactly how Emilia relates to Satella ( and vice versa) intrigues me. It was front and center from the first episode, if I remember correctly. I’m really interesting in seeing how it’s resolved!

  2. TCrow, I’ve been thinking about Subaru’s eyes since anyone who has ever commented on his eyes has remarked that they’re scary. And since Subaru got his eyes from his mom, and I believe she was originally from Re:zero’s fantasy world, I’ve been thinking about how this plot point could be reintroduced into the story if the story does eventually explore Naoko’s past by let’s say citing the disappearance of a person in Re:zero’s history who had scary eyes. After thinking about that, my thoughts surprisingly digressed from that viewpoint.

    Instead, I came up with the question, “Is there a person who wouldn’t find Subaru’s eyes scary?” I believe Priscilla could be that person. For someone as confident, rich, and politically powerful as Priscilla, she would want a man who makes her feel like a woman given how most men wouldn’t give her that feeling since she feels most men should be grovelling to her and wouldn’t necessarily want a handsome man as a result of that, and I believe Subaru’s scary-looking eyes he inherited from his mother could perhaps seem imposing or unnerving to Priscilla to the point that Priscilla gets some feels from them aside from taking a liking to Subaru based on their first interaction together since they could be what she would consider ‘manly’ eyes. I don’t know how accurate this will end up being, but I thought it was an interesting thought to have.

    1. Sounds like Subaru’s eyes support your hopes to see Priscilla and Subaru together!

      I have to admit, it’s an intriguing/attractive idea!

Please let me know what you think!
