5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2024 Week 09

Every week, I visit over 290 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!

9 Tailed Kitsune

Top 10 Anime Women in Science

I saw this title, and I immediately thought to myself, “Huh. I’ll bet they don’t have my favorite woman in science.” Yeah, I was feeling pretty arrogant about my esoteric tastes. I thought there’d be no way another site would think of an anime from more than a decade ago! Boy, was I wrong. Not only did this post by Louis on the site 9 Tailed Kitsune include my favorite (who is Rika Shiguma, by the way). It also included a couple characters I’ve never met! That’s some serious expertise there — and it was a heck of a lot of fun to read! See if you know all ten characters in the list!


Metallic Rouge Episode 8 Review – The Circumstances Of Rouge’s Birth

I am having a blast watching Metallic Rouge, but even I have to admit that its narrative structure presents some challenges for the viewer (like me). Which is like saying the Titanic had a minor ice cube incident. That’s cool — no story is perfect. I still love the show. Why? Well, this post by ecargmura on the site ARUM JOURNAL makes the case way better than I could. I particularly like ecargmura’s analysis of Gene. I’m getting a similar vibe, for the same reasons! See if you’ve picked up on the same thing!



I thought I was long since past being surprised by anything bloggers could write. I guess that included anything that The Overage Otaku could write on the site Confessions of an Overage Otaku. But as I was reading The Overage Otaku’s post about the character Takeo Gouda (I’m using MAL spellings, so YMMV) and saw him say that Takeo Gouda was Arthurian — and then go on to prove it — I realized that I lacked imagination. Indeed, posts like this one from The Overage Otaku can still surprise me. And I’ll tell you what: at my age, that’s delightful! Go see if you have a similar reaction!


Anime: 7th Time Loop, Ep. 7

I face a challenge when I find reviews of shows I like. For example, I really enjoy the banter and animation in the series 7th Time Loop: The Villainess Enjoys a Carefree Life Married to Her Worst Enemy!. That means I tend to find those reviews at a perhaps disproportionate rate. But it also means my standards for those reviews are higher. Well, I’m happy to report that this review by THE FILTHY CASUAL on the site FILTHY CASUAL FOR LIFE meets or exceeds all Crow’s World of Anime Standards for Excellence in Reviews (CWASER which is so close to Qwaser that I should change it). Thinking about it, maybe it is a badge I should probably make up for fun. Kidding aside, I love how The Filthy Casual talks about the show — especially Rishe, who is one of those strong female characters I like so much. Go see why you should be watching this show!


Death Parade – Review

Every so often, I come across a review of an older anime series like Death Parade. I’ve read so many reviews of so many different shows that it’s hard to find something new. That’s particularly true as the shows age. I mean, the sheer volume of posts tend to exhaust the available pool of ideas! But I was happy to find that YumDeku on the site MyAnimeGo was able to present insights into the show that I’ve not read before. And I’ve read a lot! The way YumDeku spoke of the characters really appealed to me. See if you have a similar reaction!

  1. TCrow, another point to why Satella should be killed instead of sealed is that due to most actions having a consequence in Re:zero, it’s possible that even if the pieces were there to seal Satella a second time, the seal would not be permanent and would be broken if none of the original casters of the seal remain alive due to their mana being tied to their life since Beatrice said that one’s mana in the fantasy world is basically his/her life force itself.

    If the legendary dragon were to die in 1,000 years and didn’t have offspring, the seal might be undone in 1,000 years and would delay action on dealing with Satella to the future when there might not be a group of heroes strong enough to seal or kill her, which would result in the end of the world. I’m sure Satella herself likely knows this, which is why she requested for Subaru to come kill her one day since the plan multiple characters from 400 years ago likely decided to enact was the best-case scenario.

    1. That makes sense.

      I wish I understood Satella more. For example: she seems like she’d destroy the world, yet she seems like she wants to save it. It’s like she has an obsessive disorder and can’t help herself in wanting to destroy it, but she morally objects. If that makes sense.

      I think I’ve said before, but it bears repeating: the show’s lore is so rich and complex, and my viewings so far apart, that I can’t keep it all loaded in my mind. So I’m glad you shared your insights!

  2. When I saw the title, I thought “Kurisu Makise better be on here!” 🙂 And Maomao is fantastic too.

    In Precure, probably the biggest scientists are:
    Honoka Yukishiro – Cure White, from the first two seasons. dubbed “the Queen of Knowledge”. She’s always doing original experiments, and leads the science club. She designs a chamber to create lighting for the first season science fair, and one on trash conversion for the 2nd.
    Himari Arisugawa is obsessed with the science of sweets, and is invited by a famous food scientist to assist him in making the world’s largest sponge cake.
    Possibly Ruru Amour from Hugtto, though she’s an android.
    Tsubasa from Hirogaru Sky is a boy, so he’s not on the list.

    Metallic Rouge- still watching. Still waiting.

    1. Yet more reasons to watch more Precure! Cool.

      Androids count as scientists — at least, I think so as a fan of Star Trek Next Generation!

      With Metallic Rouge, like I just said in a response Merlin’s comment on one of the episodes: at this point, I have little idea of what’s going on, that that’s okay. I’m going along for the ride, and I’m still having fun!
