5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2024 Week 06

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!

AngryAnimeBitches Anime Blog

7th Time Loop Episode 5

7th Time Loop: The Villainess Enjoys a Carefree Life Married to Her Worst Enemy! might have the distinction of being the series with the longest title — among the shows I’m watching this season. Just wanted to throw that out there after giving up and copying/pasting the title after getting tired of mistyping it! Title aside, the main character Rishe really makes the show. Why/how? I’m glad you asked, because I just came across Eva’s post on the site AngryAnimeBitches Anime Blog. I whole-heartedly endorse Eva’s perspective on Rishe — and I think you, too!

Anime Rants

Blue Exorcist: Shimane Illuminati Saga – Episodes 4 and 5

I’m so glad that 7Mononoke, on the site Anime Rants, decided to review Blue Exorcist: Shimane Illuminati Saga. I’ve loved this series since it’s first season. That means I’m always on the lookout for posts talking about it. It also means I’m really picky about which of those posts I choose to celebrate — the review has to be authentic and compelling. Which are both words I can use to describe this post! I particular enjoyed 7Mononoke’s points about Mephisto and Izumo. Go see if you agree!

Harper Anime Reviews

Seasonal Selection – Metallic Rouge Episode 5

Speaking of shows whose reviews I’m picky about… Metallic Rouge is the only new series I’m reviewing this season. Real life is demanding, isn’t it? Anyway, I came across Austin Harper’s review of the series on Harper Anime Reviews. I was glad to see that Austin Harper understands what the series has to offer! In particular, he’s willing to give the show time to develop in an environment where many commentators have written it off. See if you agree with his reasoning!

Mechanical Anime Reviews


I still haven’t watched this series, but I remember the fervor Oshi No Ko generated when it debuted. I’m all about celebrating anime, but even I can see that sometimes, a mass hysteria seems to grip the fandom in general. Sometimes, it lauds a series that can’t support the praise in hindsight. Was that the case with Oshi No Ko? Scott’s review on Mechanical Anime Reviews took a look at the series, and his conclusion might surprise you. Or not! There’s only one way to find out!


Mashle Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Friendship Forged in Magic

This isn’t the first time that Miya Hanzo, on the site ZEROGAYA-KUN, has gotten me interested in a series I had either missed by accident, or chose not to watch. This time, Miya Hanzo described a recent episode of Mashle: Magic and Muscles – The Divine Visionary Candidate Exam Arc. The main body of the review was interesting enough — but the section “Personal Thoughts, Opinions, and Speculations” really got me thinking. The last point Miya Hanzo was my favorite. Does this post talk about what you liked about the episode?

  1. As I indicated after Episode 3, I believe Arnold’s plan in 7th Time Loop is to start a worldwide revolution that dismantles all monarchies. It didn’t occur to me until now, but Episode 1 itself likely hinted at that given the elite guard of King Dietrich were tasked with protecting the very young Crown Princes, which showed that Arnold was there to ensure that there were no heirs to the throne in Hermity. I believe this is backed by Theodore saying that Arnold only lets his reputation as a monster on the battlefield spread while leaving his legacy of creating policies that help commoners go unnoticed. Arnold likely wants to damage the reputations of monarchies to such an extent that the world decides to start anew rather than continue having monarchies as if nothing had happened.

    To put it simply, I believe in all likelihood that Arnold believes it is impossible to reform the Empire of Galkhein and perhaps the rest of the world’s monarchies in any way, and that is why he is determined to cast aside his future and disappear after fully carrying out his plan because he sees the world as being so rotten that he need to consider doing that. Maybe Rishe and Theodore can change Arnold’s outlook on life, but it will be difficult as we don’t know just how long Arnold has envisioned having this plan be enacted.

    1. Or maybe she’ll remain his ally and help him. His goal’s noble. Not saying she should encourage a murderous rampage! But changing a political order means friction, and that often manifests as armed conflict.

      Though she might convince him to work through the Aria Company to change the economy underneath/in spite of royalty. Take that world in the direction of the English monarchy, which ended up more or less a figurehead.

      Interesting discussion!

      1. One thought I have is that if Arnold is planning a worldwide revolution/reformation, who is he working with to enact this plan? As Theodore said, word of Arnold’s monstrous presence on the battlefield is what is being spread while the good he does for Galkhein goes unnoticed. Arnold must have people in on his plan whatever that may be as it’s not something he can accomplish by himself. Would any of these people be willing to hurt Rishe for whatever reason if she tries to persuade him to not cause a world war?

Please let me know what you think!
