5 Favorite Anime Blog Posts from 2024 Week 27

Every week, I visit about 260 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!

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hashira Geiko-hen Episode 8 [Final Impressions]

TBH, I’m still in a state of shock that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc has come and gone without me seeing a single episode. Before this season, I’d watched and reviewed each episode as it came out! I always had in the back of my mind that I’d catch up with this season before it ended. I guess that’s not going to happen! And judging by this review of the final episode by Shadow on the site AngryAnimeBitches Anime Blog, it sounds like I missed a heck of a ride! What made the last episode so interesting? You should go check out the review to see! I loved how Shadow described what happened.

Anime B&B

Kaiju No.8 Remembers Humanity

To file under the category of “better late than never:” I just started watching Kaiju No. 8. I’m only through the first episode, and I loved it. It’s solid story-telling and accessible characters drew me in and didn’t let go. Now, I know I’m only one episode in, so I could not be sure, but I saw a number of indications the show might be more than I hoped for. Then I read this post by Marina from the site Anime B&B. Talk about uplifting! I’m more excited than ever to devour this series. If you want to know what I liked (and hoped I’d like in future episodes), look no father than Marina’s review!

Mechanical Anime Reviews


Did you watch Synduality Noir part 1 or part 2? I watched part 1 and liked it — I even reviewed it. There’s a good reason you might not have watched it: it aired on Hulu instead of Crunchyroll (I was about to add “or Funimation,” but, well, history has overtaken that option). But I’d argue that the show was well worth watching. Turns out Scott, on the site Mechanical Anime Reviews, would make that case, too! And very eloquently. Synduality Noir was a mech series, and Scott’s an expert on the topic. That, and he has a keen eye for what works and what doesn’t in any series — and mech series in particular. Go see what he had to say about this mech show!

Merlin’s Musings

The Surprising Tearmoon Empire Story

Time for a serious note. Merlin from Merlin’s Musings just made a very, very important observation about Tearmoon Empire. No, I’m not setting you up for some kind of joke. It turns out Tearmoon Empire (and I might have known this if I’d’ve watched the thing — damn, my schedule sucks) presented one of the core issues of our time in a way that made it both accessible and understandable. It’s something that’s been on my mind, given evens in the USA over the last eight or ten years (which are actually the culmination of plans started at least seventy years ago).

To put it into modern terms: how would an enemy bring down the United States, which has the most powerful military and financial engine the world has ever seen? The answer’s simple. Two forces have figured it out. It’s this: you turn its people against each other and you convince them that certain modern markets are fake. That both reduces the country’s will to respond to an enemy and keeps us from entering emerging markets.

Did you feel your hackles go up when I even mentioned the topic? Or did you have a sense I’d launch into an attack of the “other” side and prove my own tribal membership? That’s the reaction that Teardrop Empire, with its cheerful storytelling, avoided entirely — delivering the message in its fullness before — well, I don’t want to spoil Merlin’s surprise. Take a look at what Tearmoon Empire had to say about this topic. Merlin made it clear and entertaining at the same time!

Shallow Dives in Anime

The Summer of Love VI with Attack on Titan: The Clash of the Titans Arc!

If you asked me what season of Attack on Titan was my favorite, I think I’d say the second season. So, when I saw Dewbond’s recent post on Shallow Dives in Anime, I got really excited for two reasons. First, it’s a Dewbond review, so I knew it was going to be packed full of insightful and balanced insights. And second, he was going to talk about my favorite season. I gotta say: the post delivered, and then some. And was he spot on about Erwin or what? See if Dewbond talks about your favorite things from this season!

  1. TCrow, Oshi no Ko’s Episode 12 had a really creative scene between Himekawa and Kana that showed how much love the director has for the source material (which I don’t read).

    It shows this second part has got great staff members working on it just like the first part and that they want to do justice to the material.
