Second week of 2019 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, moments of beauty, 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 so I can add it to the list!
- 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 blogsphere. I hope this article helps you find some of them!
Have you watched The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya? I’ve finished the first season and am working my way through the second, and I’d get farther if new interesting series wouldn’t keep monopolizing my time! Be that as it may, you might deduce from the title that Haruhi Suzumiya plays a prominent role, and you’d be right. There’s a reason the show’s so popular, and it has a lot to do with Haruhi’s character. This post from Confessions of an Overage Otaku present a perspective that’s not only technically rich, but is a blast to read! It makes me want to redouble my efforts to finish the series!
You know one of the ways that I can tell a series had an impact on me? When just reading a review of it can trigger some of the emotions I felt while watching it. Take Made in Abyss, for example. The show ended in September 2017, yet even now, mere mention of the spine or Mitty can make me pause. This post from Hue Hue Reviews understands that. It presents one of the best retrospectives on the series and its effects on viewers. If you watched the series, read this article to see it matches your experience. If not, read this article to get an idea of what you missed!
The holidays seem to make a lot of bloggers introspective, and the result is a lot of really interesting posts! Take this one from #moe404., for example. The writer thinks of “coming of age” anime series during the holidays. The list of series is caught my attention, but what really sold me on this article was the depth of analysis! The list includes several series I know backwards and forwards, and yet the post managed to give me a greater appreciation for those series! And the one series I hadn’t seen yet? Yeah, it’s on my backlog now because of this write-up!
