Every week, I visit around 275 anime sites looking for posts that celebrate amazing moments in anime or otherwise blow me away with their wit and charm. These are my five favorite posts for the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Five Favorite Posts from 2023 Week 51
Good heavens, it’s dangerous reading FlareKnight’s reviews on the site Anime Evo! Every time I do, my backlog grows! I might have to only read FlareKnight’s reviews of shows I’m already watching! In all seriousness, though, this review did get me excited to watch Tearmoon Empire. I hope I can tget to it soon — FlareKnight made it sound like it’ll be a lot of fun to watch! Have you seen it? Then go see if he talked about what you liked about it! But if you haven’t seen it, be careful! Reading this post might make your backlog might grow, too!
There are three words in this title that, reduced to add focus, make me happy: Rishia Curb-Stomped Itsuki. Okay, four words. Those are happy words to me! I’ve always liked Rishia (currently in The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3), and I’ve never liked Itsuki. So, how did said curb-stomping play out? Roderick J “Jay” Friz, on the site D&A Anime Blog, included a description in his review, and wow, did it sound fun! I’m a few episodes behind; now I have something to look forward to! Oh, and the review includes some extra details from the source material to make the episode even more impactful. Go see what I mean!
I have a problem with some of the recent events in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2. I won’t go into details to avoid spoiling anything, but what happened made me decide to walk away from the franchise. Then I read this post by Jonah Alexander Hunt on the site Jonah’s Daily Rants. No lie — the post completely changed my perspective. I’m not walking away now — not after what I just read in this post. I’ll bet if you read it, you’ll see what I mean! Go check it out!
I’ll get around to reviewing the last three episodes of Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead someday. Until I do, I had to wonder: did the show end on as strong a note as it began? Because I seriously enjoyed the episodes that I did see! Well, magicalchurlsukui just answered that question on the site RABUJOI. What did magicalchurlsukui think? Did the show end strong? There’s one way to find out!
There are some series that I thoroughly enjoyed, but I get a bit bummed when I can’t find anyone else who liked them. I don’t want affirmation of my taste. I’m nowhere cruel enough to hope anyone would actually share my tastes! But I do sometimes want to geek out about a show, and conducting a conversation with myself is just sad. Tonight, I finally — finally — found someone else who enjoyed Hanebado! — unironically! I’m partly joking, because I know some people liked the show. But not as much as I did — or as much Ichi did, either, judging by this post on the site Sports Baka. Not only does Ichi say why the show was show enjoyable. Ichi went into fantastic detail about the characters and conflicts. And now, despite the size of my backlog, I want to rewatch Hanebado!
