Not a lot happened this week, other than most people now have a consolidated watch list for the season. A brief reminder that next Monday is 100 Word Anime’s 1 year anniversary (though I have anniversary posts scheduled all week because why not). Hopefully you will all join me in celebration.
Below I’ve linked to some great posts I found this week. As always, feel free to add a link in the comments to any posts you feel deserve a bit more attention (preferably anime related).
Shameless self-promotion: As you all know I started a patreon site for my blog and am looking for patrons to support the expansion of 100 Word Anime. Thanks to my patrons who already support this site. End shameless self-promotion.
Seasonal Prattle continues to give us some very fun quizzes and this week we got to find out which My Hero Academia character we are. While I’m not exactly convinced of the result on this one, I love taking Prattle’s quizzes and the results are always entertaining to discuss in the comments. If you haven’t checked out any of these quizzes, or Prattle’s other excellent posts, you should definitely make some time to visit the site.
Sakura Sunrise has an interesting post (part 1) asking Is Bones The Best Animation Studio In The World. While I’m not big on following particular studios, I really do enjoy a lot of Bones’ anime releases (with a few exceptions) so I enjoyed reading through their reasoning. If you didn’t come across this post during the week you should check it out.
Shoujo Princess shares a list of 10 Anime You Can Watch With Your Boyfriend. I really enjoyed reading this because their reasoning for each inclusion on the list is well thought out. Not to mention, while I have a handful of people who watch anime with me, they’ve all got different tastes and preferences so finding a range of anime and ways of selling them to different viewers is always helpful.
Psychime has an interesting post about Why Bakugo is My Hero. It’s an interesting look at the somewhat brash and regularly confrontational Bakugo in My Hero Academia. Well worth reading if you watched season 1 or are thinking about it.
The Alfredeo Blog has a list of their top 15 songs from Love Live. As I haven’t watched the show and have no familiarity with any of the music, I have no opinion on the placement of things on this list, however, it is a fun list to read and I loved reading the reasons for each song being on the list. So fans of the show should check out this post.
From Anime Reviewer Girl there is a 3 Life Lessons Reinforced by Anime. If you haven’t visited Anime Reviewer Girl before she mostly posts videos on a single topic where she discusses her thoughts. Very fun to listen to.
Archi-Anime had a great post this week on Townsperson B: Hitoka Yachi from Haikyuu. While I’m not finished watching Haikyuu yet, Hitoka was quite a welcome addition to the cast during season 2 and this post neatly highlights some of what she brings to the show.
For those who enjoy Prattle’s quizzes, or haven’t tried them yet, last week they had a quiz that let you find out if you could make a hit anime this season. It was pretty fun to play with and got you thinking about the shows that are doing well or might do well this season.
And that’s all from me.
