Every week, I visit about 280 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!
You can see a list of the sites I check here: Massive List of Sites!
Over the last several weeks, lots of bloggers have posted their thoughts on Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2. All of the posts I read interested me. Most were contenders for this 5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts. This post struck me harder, though. Written by Vivian Scheibelein on the site Animated Observations, the reason is the passion with which it was written. I get exactly why Vivian Scheibelein felt this way about the show — because the post spells it out with clarity! This site, and this post, is all about celebrating anime, and this post does a fantastic job doing just that. See if you agree!
Gushing over Magical Girls actually made it to my list of finalists of potential series to review this season. But I chose Metallic Rouge instead. I figured I didn’t need to see another Puella Magi Madoka Magica and put it out of my mind. I saw a few scenes here and there on social media — just enough to think, “Huh. That doesn’t look what I expected.” Then I read this post by DoubleSama from the site DOUBLESAMA. Turns out I had completely the wrong idea about what the show was about! Like, completely! In fact, I’m going to have to watch the series at some point. If you seen it, check out this post to see if DoubleSama picked up your favorite moments! If not, well, go see what you’re missing!
Did you watch Azur Lane: Queen’s Orders? It seems that the show appeals to a very specific demographic. No, not that demographic. Okay, yes, that demographic, too. So I should say, the show appeals to two specific demographics. I just learned about the second when I read this post by AK on the site Everything Is Bad for You. Can you guess the second demographic? There’s one way to see if you were right!
The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic is another series that made it to my list of finalists. Based on the first couple of episodes, I have to say that I regret not having more time this season. It’s a fun show! So, what makes this more than yet-another-isekai? I’m glad you asked, because this post by The Filthy Casual on the site Filthy Casual for Life asks the same question. What’s more, this post answers it! I have to say, the answer matches what I thought. Which means either that it’s guaranteed 100% accurate, or it’s, well… Let’s hope, for The Filthy Casual’s sake, that it’s 100% accurate. I’m mostly sane, after all! Sharing an opinion with me isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Right? Never mind. Don’t answer that. just go read the post!
The Apothecary Diaries is already on my back log, so when I came across this post by Frog-kun on the site Frogkun.com, I figured I was safe. I can’t exactly add the same title to my backlog twice, can I? But I’d forgotten a very important point. Frog-kun’s posts are infectious. To read one is to become enamored of the subject. So, sure, I had the post already in my backlog. But after reading Frog-kun’s post, seeing details the post brought to life, I want to stop watching current series and binge The Apothecary Diaries! Sigh. Well, someday I’ll watch it. Until then, you can enjoy this post and get excited about the series all over again!
