Other Posts to Crow About – 2018 Week 25 Edition

June 24, 2018

Twenty-fifth 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, like strong characters, intricate plots, or amazing worlds.

There are only two rules:

  • I have to find the site to read it. I publish a list of the sites I review every week, so please do look for your site! If you don't see it, I'd love for you to mention your site in the comments. 
  • ​Your post had to have been published during the last seven days (or so)


Remember, 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!

5 Devoted Anime Dads

Dads don't get enough respect. I'm not saying moms don't deserve all the respect they get. They do! And more, probably. But I too often see a father's role diminished or not well represented. Enter this post from All About Anime and Manga! It's a list of 5 devoted anime dads, and I have to say that numbers I'm in absolute agreement with 1, 2, and 3!

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma – San no Sara – 23

If there's a series that consistently delivers episodes that make me happy that I love anime, it's Food Wars. This post from Anime Evo does a good job of vividly describing one of the many reasons why! Want a hint? The article says "Lest we forget this team Shokugeki is all for these kids, the creative diamonds in the rough that need the support and the learning environment that Totsuki provides, to succeed and flourish. Geniuses like Soma, Isshiki and Erina are certainly noteworthy, but there’s something entirely special about those that work beside them and try their best." Isn't that cool? And there's a lot more.

r#108 – nekomonogatari (white): tsubasa tiger

Before I talk to you about this article from #moe404, there's something I'd like you to understand. Hanekawa Tsubasa is one of my favorite all time characters. I don't mean in anime. I mean in all of humanity's known fiction. I've read examples of stories from most periods of history, going back to Gilgamesh (2150 BCE). That should speak to the esteem in which I hold Hanekawa! This article gave me yet more reasons to like this character -- and I think it'll have something to say to you, too.

Comic Girls – 12 (END)

If there's a show this season that was more unexpectedly delightful to me more than Pretty Derby,  it's Comic Girls. I'm a sucker for shows about the creative process, whether it center on magna artists, writers of any kind, or anime illustrators. This article from Random Curiosity does a great job of articulating what was so compelling about the show -- and why it was so wonderful to watch!

Ryuko Matoi’s way of saying WOMAN UP

Kill la Kill was a series I enjoyed because of its action and its strong, positive female characters -- at least, they seemed like positive strong female characters from my perspective as a guy. I don't say that because I doubt my perspective. I say it because my perspective as a single human is limited. So it was kind of cool to read a female perspective that isn't inconsistent with mine! It's not that I need validation. It's that I welcome it when it happens. Anyway, check out this post from Your Geeky Sister about what a powerful character Ryuko Matoi is.
