Anime List Sites that CWOA Follows

What Sites Do I Read for Other Posts to Crow About?

We’ve had a number of inquiries about what sites we regularly review for Other Posts to Crow About.

Here’s the list!

If you don’t see your site listed, please do let me know in the comments!

Seriously: If you don’t see your site listed, we really want to know! I hate the idea that there are interesting posts out there that I don’t know about!

And if you don’t see excerpts from your site show up in Other Posts to Crow About, please be aware there are a few of common causes:

  • You’re reviewing a series that I haven’t watched yet, and I don’t want to risk encountering a spoiler.
  • Your post is great, but it didn’t strike a chord with this reviewer. Truth be told, if I noted every good post, I’d note most of the posts. You all are posting a lot of intriguing stuff!
  • Your posts are embarrassingly good: There’s a chance that simply linking to your site would make this site look terrible. If that’s the case, please try to be understanding! I’m only human…
  • Your post is far too advanced for me to understand. This is no joke: I’m (usually) pretty smart, but some of you are are pushing the boundaries of human intelligence!

Honestly, I am humbled by the variety and quality of the posts I read every week. Just knowing that there’re so many informed and interesting perspective on anime is reassuring. To every writer who contributes to every site in this list: Thank you for your work.

Note: During our weekly series reviews, we often link to other blogs posting reviews of the same series. The idea is to help readers find content relevant to their favorites series. If you see that we’re reviewing the same series you are, and if we don’t link to your site, please drop us a comment!

Second note: I realized this is an English-only list. I apologize! Maybe I’ll use Chrome’s ability to translate pages the the fly to extend the list to other languages, but until then, please know that I recognize this a deficiency that I hope to remedy!

Without further ado:

Retired Sites — Maybe Temporarily?

There are sites that I used to watch, but that appear to have gone inactive. Generally speaking, if I don’t see anything new for six months, I figure the site’s gone dark. If your site’s here and you’ve started publishing again, please do let me know! I try to check these from time to time, but I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking your site’s no longer maintained if you were just resting!

It’s always sad when a site retires…

61 thoughts on “What Sites Do I Read for Other Posts to Crow About?

  1. I greatly appreciate the mention, and am happy to know you stop by. But–wow!–how do you find the time to cover that list?! That’s dedication–kudos!

    1. I’m happy to list your site!

      It _does_ take some time, but it’s rewarding. There are so many great anime blogs out there, and I’m happy to do my part to raise awareness!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. It’s admiring to see how many people you are supporting by reading them reguraly and linking them in your posts. And to see my own site there… Thank you so much for being the first anime blogger to give me a shoutout!

  3. Thank you so much for including Shallow Dives in Anime on this list! I hope you found my work to be a good read!

  4. Wow, what an incredible list of equally incredible bloggers—and to think my place is up there on that list, I’m stunned! Thanks so much for not only linking me, but also for just stopping by and reading a post or two of mine. There are quite a few names here I do not know, but I’m excited to do a little exploring now thanks to you!

    1. I’m glad it looks like the list will help you find some new sites. I’m probably sounding repetitious, but I’m just amaze at the number of interesting sites out there!

  5. Hello! What a great idea!I ‘ll definitely be using this list as a reference point when looking for something to read! I’d love it if you could include my blog too, as, even though I work very hard on my posts, I’m struggling to get much exposure (bigging myself up really goes against my nature)!

      1. I know that this is going to make me sound like a massive douche, but it’s bucho, as in the Japanese word for boss… Sorry to have to correct you! Please don’t hate me! I appreciate you adding me to the list!

        1. Not at all — glad you caught it! I’m going to have to have words with the quality assurance staff here at CWOA. They mess up all the time!

          Yeah, that means I’m going to have a stern discussion with myself, but it sounds so much more professional the other way!

          Thanks again for catching my typo!

          1. Thanks for being so cool about it! I was so worried I was going to sound like a massive snob for pointing it out!

            I hope that you enjoy checking out my blog!

    1. It started just as a way for me to try to keep up with everyone’s posts! Then it took on a life of its own! I’m glad I can include your site — thanks for producing such interesting content!

    1. An honor to be listed on this site? I suspect that’s hyperbolic — but I am happy I found your site, because you’re writing some engaging material! So I’m glad I’m able to list it.

    1. I know you post summaries of posts found on other sites weekly — isn’t it amazing how many interesting sites there are? So many interesting perspectives!

  6. Oh wow! I didn’t realize the Ospreyshire Page was featured on your blog. Thank you very much. However, I do have a blog that focuses on indie movies, anime, documentaries, and short films called Iridium Eye Reviews.

    1. Isn’t it amazing how much enjoyable content this community creates? It _still_ amazes me!

    1. Now that you mention it, it took over a year to build the initial list, but it was only in my bookmarks. So I figured, why now share? And here we are!

      You’re welcome — and thanks for having a blog that’s enjoyable to read!

  7. oh my! thanks for linking my blog 🙂 i’m glad you enjoy my content and that you’re sharing it, you have tons on here that i totally agree with and others i don’t know (so i have to change that lol)

    1. You’re most welcome! I’m having a lot of fun keeping up with all of the creative and interesting blogs like yours — I almost feel kinda selfish because I’m having so much fun!

      Thanks for stopping by!

Please let me know what you think!
