Other Posts to Crow About – 2018 Week 13 Edition

Thirteenth week of 2018 edition!

This is a Crow's eye view of the posts that caught my attention this week​. Typically, they'll be posts that celebrate some aspect of anime, in particular strong characters, intricate plots, or amazing worlds.

There are only two rules:

  • I have to find the site to read it. So, if you never see your site mentioned, it might be that I don't know it's there! Please feel free to mention your site in the comments. 
  • ​Your post had to have been published during the last seven days (or so)

You can find a list of the sites I check every week here

There're a lot of good posts in the anime space. I hope this post helps you find some of them!

Anime Corps

Anime Editorial: Guilty Displeasure

You know how you feel ​invested in the shows you like? It's hard to hear folks saying negative things about ​them. The older I get, the more I have come to understand that I react differently depending on how someone presents their negative opinions. There's a difference between someone attacking me and/or something I like -- and someone who shares their perspective, which might be dramatically different from mine. Not offering a judgement. Not trying to claim some objective rightness. This editorial from Anime Corps is a great example of the latter. I absolutely loved The Ancient Magus' Bride, but I can't deny the perspective that this editorial provides. It's important that we not only listen to one another, but try to speak to one another as well. That's why I really liked this editorial.

I Respectfully Disagree

Apparently respect is a theme this week! Why do we blog? Why do we put our ideas out there? For the majority of the blogs I follow, I am really happy to say that the goal seems to be ​sharing a perspective. We can share ​these perspectives without disrespecting or mistreating each other. But don't take my fumbling attempt to describe the idea. Check out this post from I Drink and Watch Anime. It's much more articulate!

​Crow's World of Anime is all about celebrating anime. I don't care what you like; I want you to know that you should love what you love. So when I come across a list that makes me want to like shows I didn't even watch, I know I've come across something cool. This post from Lethargic Ramblings is a great example of a writer who loves anime. I hope you enjoy reading this article as much as I did!

Random Curiosity

Spring 2018 Preview!

I used to do seasonal previews. But I didn't have the time to watch enough of the shows to offer a broad perspective, and there were sites that did it much better than I could. Want proof? Check out this Spring 2018 preview from Random Curiosity. It's complete, it's clear, and it gets me fired up for a new anime season. I hope it'll do the same for you!
