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!
It’s fun to find a new series you enjoy, isn’t it? Every season, we check out the new crop of anime, hoping to find a series that capture out imaginations. Except, it doesn’t have to be that way, does it? There’s no rule saying we have to keep up, season by season, with what’s a very real embarrassment of riches. This post by ADVANCED495 on the site ADVANCED495’s ANIME BLOG reminded me of that. It was great reading how much ADVANCED495 enjoyed Reincarnated as a Sword, which came out over a year ago. It doesn’t matter how long ago something came out — if you’ve never seen it before, it’s new to you! For those of us with massive backlogs, this is quite a statement of hope!
Each of The Overage Otaku’s posts on Confessions of an Overage Otaku has the potential to amaze me, educate me, or both. This post is an excellent example. How many words have been written about Steins;Gate? You’d think we’d be out of new things to say! But this post found something new — something that, like many amazing insights, is obvious only in hindsight. But only after posts like this point it out — or writers like The Overage Otaku come up with it! So if you want to enjoy another insight about this venerable series, this post is exactly what you’re looking for!
My Hero Academia Season 6 impressed me. As far as I’m concerned, the way it brought together all of the elements that came before elevated it to another level. But don’t take my word for it! Instead, let me direct you to this post by Merlin from Merlin’s Musings. Merlin’s post focuses on one aspect of the story and how it came into focus in this last season. Reading how Merlin came to this conclusion was cool — it mirrored my own thought process. Which isn’t a slam against Merlin at all! All joking aside, see if you noticed the same thing that Merlin did.
Zom 100 started so strong that the production issues that delayed the release of its final episodes hurt more than usual. To be clear: those issues affected the artists in a real way, while I was just inconvenienced. Still, it blunted the show’s impact. But did it cripple it? Lynn, on the site The Otaku Author, weighs in on that question. And he does so with his casually deep insights about the story and characters. See if his conclusions matched yours!
It’s easy for nostalgia to cloud our memories. I remember adoring the series Space:1999 when I was younger (I was in high school when it came out). Years later, I tried to rewatch it. Boy, was I disappointed! Reading Dewbond’s post on Shallow Dives in Anime about Black Lagoon reminded me of that experience. Would Dewbond also feel disappointed? Did nostalgia affect how he remembered the series? I don’t want to give it away, so I’ll just give you a one word hint: Revy. See if Dewbond’s experience matches yours!
