In Case You Missed It 2019 #16

Here we are and another week in the blogoverse is done. Another week in the real world is also done with elections running in Australia and as usual my work week being one bit of urgency slamming straight into the next. While some bloggers I’ve been following for a fair while are closing up shop or taking a break the community as a whole is still going strong and there were plenty of great posts during the week.

Hopefully you find something fun to read and as always if you have a post you’d like to give a shout out to send me a message via my contact or on Twitter. Also, if you’d like to ask me a question for the inquiring minds series of posts, be sure to complete the simple survey.

Posts from the Community

Jessi Silver has an excellent post about the complexities of motherhood and how mothers have been represented in a range of media, but particularly focusing on anime mothers. While there are some spoilers in the post for The Promised Neverland, the focus isn’t about the plot of any particular anime so much as how the anime shows the role of mothers. A fun post to read and one worth checking out.

Not what the post is about but an interesting anime mother-daughter relationship nonetheless.

Roger Pocock on The View From The Junkyard gives a lovely review of Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day. This one avoids going too heavily into spoilers but does address some of the key themes and conflicts that arise in the series. If you have never seen Anohana this may be a great review to read as it will probably prompt you to give it a go.

Tessa gives us a review of 07 Ghost which is an anime that isn’t often talked about, probably because the story is incomplete at the end of season one and there is no season two. Still, the season that exists is pretty good and this review certainly reminded me that this anime was a fun experience.

Anime Rants discusses Midnight Occult Civil Servants episodes 4 – 6 and looks at what works in the anime and what its weaknesses are. I’ve quite enjoyed it so far and it is nice to see a few other bloggers are keeping going with the series even if it isn’t going to be for everyone. If you haven’t check the anime out yet and want to know how it is going now that it has hit the mid-season, this post might be a good one to check out.

Reasons to Anime gives us 5 Reasons to Watch Shugo Chara and this is such a great post about an anime that doesn’t get anywhere near enough attention. If you’ve never heard of it, or if you are looking for a magical girl show that is a little bit different, then check out this post as it may convince you to give Shugo Chara a shot.

Aria shares their thoughts on Sarazanmai and how it is basically a magical boy show. Okay, the article is actually a lot more interesting than that and it raises some interesting points. Enough that it made me want to go and give this anime another look (I tried the first episode but it really didn’t grab me). Still, posts like this one make me curious about what might be.

The Fan of a Certain Age blog had a great post this week giving us ten anime about adults. While I will admit, I don’t mind the teenage focus a lot of anime have, it is actually always kind of refreshing to come across an anime with older characters. After reading this post I really think I’ll have to do a list of my own of anime I enjoy with adult characters. Anyway, this post is a great read and you should definitely check it out.

Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews shares his thoughts on the Code Geass movie and they are a bit more positive than the review I shared last week. That said, reading the plot description I’m still not sure the movie is for me and I’m going to happily just let it go, but if you wanted to know what the movie did right or what might appeal to you as a fan of the franchise, this post will point you in the right direction.

Pick of the Week

Kapodaco reviews Katangatari and as a series I love that never gets discussed enough I urge you to check out this post before taking the plunge and watching the anime if you haven’t already. This review isn’t a straight rave without any acknowledgement of the series short-comings as it will outline the barriers to enjoyment clearly and early in the piece before coming back to explaining why you should watch it anyway. It’s a great post and one that should definitely be read.

In Case You Missed It 2019 #15

Another week in ani-blogging and this one has been fun, fun, fun. The give-away finished and a huge thanks to everyone who helped me celebrate my blog anniversary. I do want to give a big congratulations to Matt Doyle who was drawn first and Lethargic Ramblings as the runner up. Just as soon as I manage to align my work schedule with post office opening hours their prize will be in the mail. I do hope in the future I can run a better give-away but the figures are cute even in their unboxed state and I hope they enjoy them.

Also big news this week, Irina has come on board 100 Word Anime as a contributing author. At this stage we’re trying a few things and seeing how things work but I’m thrilled to have her along. As I mentioned in my goals for the future of the blog, for my fourth year of blogging I was looking to maybe expand the team beyond just me, but right before that post went out, Irina sent me a message with a proposal. So while it has happened sooner than expected, I am really happy and I’m so excited to be working with Irina and I’m hoping it all works out. If you missed her first post for 100 Word Anime be sure to check out the links below.

Hopefully you find something fun to read and as always if you have a post you’d like to give a shout out to send me a message via my contact or on Twitter.

Posts from the Community

  • Reasons To Anime gives us 3 reasons to skip Kaguya-Sama Love is War. While I will find a positive post to offset this given a large chunk of the community loved it, I personally really struggled watching it so I found it nice to find another blogger who equally had issues with the anime. Admittedly, our reasons for not getting into it don’t really align but I these three reasons interesting ones as they made me reconsider some of my thoughts on the anime. If you haven’t watched the anime and you are considering Kaguya-Sama, this is a nice post that offsets a lot of the praise and rave reviews and might offer a different perspective for you to consider.
Kaguya-Sama Episode 12 - Shinomiya crying
  • Alright, I know I said I would find a positive post but it seems most the people celebrating this show have already posted thoughts and now we’re getting reviews from people who were a little less thrilled by Kaguya-Sama Love is War. Anime Rants actually has a nice middle ground review sharing reasons for personally disliking while acknowledging some of the strengths of the season. If I come across a really positive review in the next week or so I’ll throw it in the next list because I know there are plenty out there (or you could throw a link in the comments if you have a positive review you think people should check out).
  • Jeko on UEM has an article questioning why people seem to think Shield Hero is supporting slavery. The post looks at the events surrounding Naofumi’s purchase and use of Raphtalia as a slave, the Kingdom’s attempt to ‘free’ Raphtalia, her choice to have the slave mark returned, and the most recent episodes where they freed other slaves from Raphtalia’s former owner. Obviously there are spoilers for the series so far but it is interesting looking at these scenes in detail as they really do get to the core of the relationship between Naofumi and Raphtalia.
  • Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews has a post about reviews and he shares the thoughts of many ani-bloggers on twitter and what they think about reviews. It is a great post and a great insight into the community and their thoughts. Also just fun to reflect on your own thoughts about what should and shouldn’t be in a review and whether episode reviews are worth reading/writing or not. Definitely one to check out.
  • Crow’s World of Anime does its usual fantastic job as it looks at episode 5 of Fruits Basket. If you want to know exactly what is awesome about the episode then you definitely want to check out this review of it, however if you want to be surprised, and never saw the original or read the manga, watch the episode first and then go and celebrate by reading Crow’s post about it.
  • Mel in Anime Land shares some of their favourite manga and anime that have a western inspiration. Expect Alice in Wonderland (with a twist), Sherlock, Fairy Tales and all manner of other influences in this interesting list of titles.
  • Biblionyan shares 5 mediocre manga that they like to re-read. I’m going to be honest, I love re-reading fairly average books as well. There’s something relaxing and undemanding about them as long as they either have an interesting character or a plot that keeps moving. I do love reading good books, but mediocre is sometimes exactly what you are looking for.
  • Cosmosis has a write up about Towards the Terra and how it is space opera done right. Having not watched the anime I have no personal opinion about it, but I do know that reading this post made me very curious about it and I certainly will look out for this anime at some point in the future.

Pick of the Week

  • Standing on my Neck gives us a run-down of the Code Geass Lelouch of the Resurrection movie and while the post is full of spoilers I say thank-you. Reading this has absolutely clarified for me that I do not want to watch any more of this franchise and I’ll just stick with the original two seasons that provided beautiful closure at the end of their run. The post likens this to what Disney is doing to Star Wars and really I can only agree. Just leave finished stories finished and audiences need to stop paying for substandard films just because they have a franchise name on them.

Welcome back to business as mostly usual. Okay, it was my third blog anniversary week and I’m just getting back into daily blogging after going on vacation through most of April. That said, it was a great week and I found some great posts. We’re back with another round up of anime related blog posts as well as a summary of the week that was. Hopefully you find something fun to read and as always if you have a post you’d like to give a shout out to send me a message via my contact or on Twitter.

By the way, if you haven’t entered the anniversary give-away please take the chance to do so.

  • Dave D’Alessio has an interesting read about Girls’ Last Tour and how it functions and its appeal. While it isn’t an overly long post, it does a great job identifying the strengths of the series and the type of story it is telling. If you haven’t checked out Girls’ Last Tour and if you are interested, this is a great post to check out.
Girls' Last Tour - Chi and Yu
  • Artemis shares a bit of the history of the kancho, and while I thought it was weird before learning about its origins just makes me think it is even more weird that this is still a thing. Anyway, if you are looking to learn a little bit and are wanting a break from reviews and analysis of specific anime shows, this is a great post as it provides some context for something you’ve probably seen in anime and wondered just why that happened.
  • Biblionyan has a review of My Roommate is a Cat and it is just a delight to read. While I really enjoyed the anime, reading someone else’s thoughts on it and why they connected with it was fantastic and it does a great job of looking at the strengths of the series. The post is well worth reading so be sure to hop on over if you haven’t had the chance to yet.
My Roommate is a Cat Episode 7 Subaru and Haru
  • Jon Spencer Reviews gives us a look at Beautiful Bones and some of its visual and narrative similarities to Hyoka as well as what makes it distinct. It’s a fun post to read and does a great job highlighting some of the strengths and weaknesses of the series as well as identifying some of the points that may appeal to or put off an audience. Be sure to give it a read.
  • Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews shares his thoughts on Love Chunibyou and Other Delusions: Take on Me and it just made me remember that I still need to see it. While he points out some of the problems with the movie, there are a lot of positives identified and it is just a nice discussion about the movie and what works, what doesn’t, and gives an overall impression. If you are thinking about the movie, this will be a good post to check out.
  • Lynn Sheridan has a review of Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon that is well worth the read whether you love the series or are totally new to it and are just interested in what an anime with a title that long has to offer. I definitely recommend this anime and Lynn’s review will probably give you some great reasons to go and check it out so be sure to read the post.

It was a fantastic anime to watch and here each of the character’s is given their moment to shine through the sharing of their contribution to the amazing viewing experience. Great post.

In Case You Missed It 2019 #13

This time next week and I should have landed in Japan (all going well). I’ve got a crazy week ahead of me but hopefully blog posts will keep coming out and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey around Tokyo with you all (either while I’m there or once I’m back depending on internet). As a result, the weekly round up of blog posts will be postponed until the end of April and then it will resume again (I may do an overall April ‘In Case You Missed It’ post once I get back before going back to weekly.

In the meantime, here are some great posts from the community last week and as always feel free to give a shout out to a post that you feel deserves some more attention in the comments below. Also, feel free to DM me any links during the week via Twitter as I’m always happy to read good content.

Posts from the Community

Lita Kino gives us a great list of mecha pilots, without any Gundam mentions. Yes, her five favourite mecha pilots that do not come from a Gundam series, and there are some fantastic picks on the list. If you want to celebrate some of the non-Gundam mech stories out there, and the characters who pilot those machines, this is a fantastic post to read.

Full Metal Panic - Sousuke Sagara

Dirk O’Brien from Weeb the People examines episode 1 of March Comes in Like a Lion (3-Gatsu no Lion) and how tone is established through symbolism and character. Now I would have enjoyed reading this anyway given it is about an anime that really hit me hard, but this is a really nicely thought out post about the episode and is definitely one I recommend reading to anyone who has watched the anime, or anyone who is considering it and might need a bit of a push to see why they should definitely check it out.

I absolutely had to include Irina’s great post on Reiko from Natsume Yuujinchou this week as part of the OWL’s March tour. She’s a great character and Irina did a great job discussing the theme of femininity through Reiko. I look forward to Irina’s next Natsume focused OWL’s post.

Reiko - Natsume Yuujinchou

Arthifis followed a post by the lovely Irina on SEO and gave some more advice to bloggers about what it is and what they can do on their blog. It is always great to see bloggers trying to help other bloggers out and sharing their thoughts and processes. I found this a fun read and it made me reflect on a few things so I’m really glad I came across it.

Marth reviews My Roommate is a Cat so if you want to check out someone’s full thoughts on it and whether or not it is worth checking out, this post is a quick and fun read. I really feel My Roommate is a Cat flew too consistently under the radar during the Winter 2019 season despite being fairly consistent and relatively entertaining. It also managed a reasonably decent emotional character story by the end so all and all, I’d recommend checking out Marth’s post and then go watch the anime.

My Roommate is a Cat Episode 11 Subaru

Never Argue With A Fish has a wonderful review on Digimon Tamers to read that really sells the series strengths while mentioning some minor points that might be of concern. Still, for those who are inclined to check out the anime, this is a lovely review to read that will probably get you hyped for it.

Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews covers Full Metal Panic The Second Raid. Definitely worth checking out this review and if you haven’t watched Full Metal Panic, please do and be sure to keep going on to Second Raid as it is well worth the time.

Full Metal Panic The Second Raid

Lynn Sheridan shares their thoughts on Episode 12 of The Promised Neverland. Totally spoiler filled given it is a final episode review but if you’ve been enjoying the anime it is a nice summation of the final episode and what has happened and how we got there. Worth checking out.

Over on Phoenix Talks Pop Culture Japan there was an interesting post about Cheer Boys (Cheer Danshi) that explains a bit of the back story behind it and shares their personal connection with the school that the story was based on. It’s a different sort of look at the anime/manga and one that was very pleasant reading. I really enjoyed this post last week and it is one well worth checking out.

With the Winter season rapidly coming to an end it is time to have your say in the reader’s poll (if you haven’t already). There’s six days left so make sure you have voted. Also, if you missed it, earlier today I had an announcement out about some travel so be sure to check that out. Otherwise, business as usual and we have some great posts from the community. I definitely urge you to check out the pick of the week.

Posts from the Community

Xenodude gives us a fantastic list featuring their five favourite drunk scenes from anime. Of course a certain ice-skater doing a poll dance made the list but what else did. It is just a fun list to read with some great anime and characters on it, so if you want a smile this one is worth the read.

Yuri on Ice Episode 10

BiblioNyan has a great write up of Netflix’s live action Erased as an intro to J-Drama. While I personally still find the live action version of Airi creepy, the rest of this drama I found pretty entertaining and I really enjoyed reading this write up about it from the point of view of someone who went and read the manga. Definitely one to read.

Emi from Ramblings N’ Scribbles has a great post focusing on the wonderful character of Akane Tsunemori from Psycho Pass. It is a great post that looks at a range of Akane’s attributes as a character and celebrates what she achieves in her story as well as who she is. If you want something positive and fun to read, as well as want to spend more time with a great character, from the perspective of someone who was trying to play her as part of a fan dub project, then this is a great post to check out.

Kawaii Paper Pandas shares their top ten abilities from Bungo Stray Dogs. There’s clearly a lot of enthusiasm here for the topic and you can feel the love while reading the list. Also, they’ve shared the promotional video for season three of Bungo Stray Dogs so if you missed seeing that here’s a chance to look at what is coming.

While on that topic, Alexie shares their five favourite abilities in Bungo Stray Dogs, plus a couple of honourable mentions because the show just has too many cool abilities to be contained to just five. Whether you like the show or are interested in just seeing some cool character powers, this is a fun and spoiler free post to have a bit of a look at.

Ktulu has a review of Re:Creators. I still haven’t had a chance to see it but I’ve enjoyed some of the takes different reviewers ave had on it. This one was fun to read as it looked at different aspects of the anime and then suggested ways it could have been improved. I’ll hopefully get to see this one eventually to see what I think of it, but in the meantime I’ll enjoy reading what others thought.

Otaku Central covers one of my favourite anime, and clearly one they enjoyed, Noragami. If you want a look at whether or not Noragami is an anime to check out, this write up covers the main characters and themes and doesn’t contain plot spoilers.

A Girl and Her Anime reviews an anime short called Sono Toki, Kanojo Wa. It sounds kind of interesting, particularly the art style, but I will admit I’d never heard of it prior to reading this review (or if I have heard of it I’d promptly forgotten). Still, it is an interesting write up that has made me intrigued and maybe I’ll find the time to go looking for this one at some point.

Irina lists her five anime that she wants another season of (though Natsume Yuujinchou got its own mention because there’s always a need for more of that). There are some great picks on the list and realistically I’d love another season of every single one of them so I had great fun reading this list. Be sure to check it out if you missed it.

Pick of the Week

This one is a bit of a late entry but really deserves to be the pick of the week. I like Crunchyroll. I do. Not the company because their customer service is terrible and they don’t communicate adequately when there are problems and that’s just the tip of the ice-berg of issues. But, they’ve made anime accessible in a way that no other streaming service has managed. Still, with the announcement they are upping their cost (not much but enough to make you wonder), it is probably time that they got called out on a few things and actually started trying to improve their service.

Now, I’m unlikely to get into the nitty-gritty of it all but Floating Into Bliss has a great video/transcript that looks at three of the big issues that need to be addressed. It isn’t a hostile attack but more a look at the series of events and decisions that sit behind a lot of what has happened with Crunchyroll and it does point out a need for change. If you didn’t catch this video and you are a Crunchyroll subscriber, you should definitely go check it out. And for those who aren’t inclined to watch videos, the script is there for you to read instead. Enjoy.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

The season continues to tick along but we are now at the closing end of Winter 2019. As such, the best of the season poll has been opened and I look forward to seeing what my readers pick for the best of the season. However, if you’ve already voted or you aren’t watching seasonal anime, as normal I’ve collected some great posts from the community for the week to share and I hope you find something you’d like to read.

If you come across a post you’d like to give a shout out to, please send me a message here on the blog or DM me on Twitter.

Posts from the Community

David Alessio shares his thoughts about Cells at Work and how it works from a narrative and character point of view. This isn’t so much a review as it is a look at the parts that make up the story and an evaluation about whether they work or not, and it is fun to read. Not to mention, its about Cells at Work. Be sure to check this post out if you missed it.

Cells at Work Episode 12 - Platelet

Pokeninja shares their thoughts on a kickstarter game, Chromatose and encourages people to support the project. If you want to know more about it, and it does look interesting, and are interested in the kickstarter, this post is well worth the read through and contains links to find out more.

Standing on my Neck has their series review of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime out. I’m waiting to see if the ‘extra’ episodes add anything before drafting mine, but to be honest, this review kind of sums up a lot of my feelings about Slime. While I had fun enough watching it, thinking back I am left wondering ‘what was the point’ quite a lot. While huge Slime fans may not appreciate this take, I found it an interesting read.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 20

Shojo Ramblings has a review of the Dramatical Murder anime. If you want a detailed overview of what to expect if you decide to check out the anime this review is definitely for you as it explains the nature of the content without giving away plot spoilers. Well worth the read.

Lita Kino discusses their love of Gundam as part of mecha March and it is a great post full of love for the franchise. I always enjoy reading a post that is so passionate and full of love and this one will be great fun to read for any anime fan even if Gundam isn’t your thing.

For those wanting some cosplay photo-shoot tips, Shania from Quotable Creations shares some tips for when Mother Nature is not your friend and some good ideas for in-house photos. This was a fun post to read and there are some great ideas for those looking to try out some cosplay.

Lesley has a great list of top 5 anime red-heads. I love characters with red hair and there are so many great ones out there to choose from. if you want to read a fun list and enjoy some great red-headed characters, check out this post.

Amelia from A Girl and Her Anime had a great post about Sailor Moon and what she learned as a twenty-two year old watching the Sailor Soldiers in action for the first time. It was a great nostalgia trip for me and just a fun post for any Sailor Moon fan. Definitely one worth checking out. This one definitely got my pick of the week.

The Promised Neverland Episode 9 Ray and Emma

It has been another full on week in the real world though I was fortunately able to catch up a bit on anime and posting. There’s still a few shows I’m behind on and a couple of days when only two posts went out. I think I should be able to get the blog back up to full speed by the end of next week and back to consistent three posts a day, though we’ll see how the next week goes and whether I get thrown any more exciting twists and turns.

In the meantime, I have found some great posts from around the ani-blogging community to share this week with a lot of different topics covered. Be sure to check out some of the posts below if you missed them and as always, feel free to let me know if you come across a post you think deserves a shout out.

Posts from the Community

Cactus Matt is back counting down top 10 OP’s of the season and this list is covers a nice range of some of the better openings from the season (with embedded videos if you don’t know them or just want to listen to some of the great songs). I love lists, I love great OP’s and this one was just a fun post to read so be sure to check it out and share your favourite OP’s in the comments.

A Nerdy Perspective gives us a review of Skull-Face Bookseller Honda-San. This one had a few people chatting about it when it was airing and since has gone strangely quiet but if it was one you didn’t watch while it was airing it might be a good weekend entertainment for you. Check out the review and see what you think.

Skull Face Book Seller Honda San Episode 8

Arthifis continues to look at each show that premiered this season and give an impression post based on three episodes (great for figuring out which anime you should go back and give a go if you are looking for something new to watch). This post covers The Magnificent Kotobuki which is a post I was waiting for because I’ve been curious about this one and hadn’t tried it myself. I’m not sure if I was convinced to give it a go or not, but I did enjoy seeing Arthifis’ initial impressions on it.

Atelier Emily has a really great break down of episode 8 of The Promised Neverland and how visuals played into the narrative shift that was taking place. Heavy spoiler warning for those not up to that part of the anime and haven’t read the source, but it is a great post and one well worth reading to those who did watch the episode.

The Promised Neverland Episode 8 Krone's Death

Lita Kino has a fantastic post about Lacus and how her character really came into her own in Destiny. I quite enjoy Lacus as a character and I really enjoyed reading Lita’s perspective on her and why Lita liked her. A fun post to read for those who enjoyed Gundam Seed.

Irina continues to produce consistently interesting content and this week I fell in love with her post on colour coding in ACCA where she looks at the main characters and what their hair colour tells us about them. Apparently a lot more than I was paying attention to. It is a really great post and well worth the read, particularly if you enjoyed ACCA or even if you just like learning a bit more about colours and their meanings.

Yuri Reviews covers Scorching Ping Pong Girls. Now I haven’t seen the anime and it doesn’t sound like my kind of thing, but this was a nicely written review that seemed to cover some of the positives and issues with the series and generally provided a good overview without giving away too much. If you are interested in the anime it would be well worth reading.

Reasons to Anime shares 5 Reasons To Skip Phi Brain. I was actually a little sad to read this because this anime had been on my watch list for a while and it was one I was secretly kind of waiting for a good moment to sit down and binge watch thinking I’d probably quite enjoy it. I still might, but given some of the reasons given here to skip it, I’m not holding out quite as much hope anymore.

Otome Kitten has a great review of Code Realize: Wintertide Miracles. If you are curious about the game this is a nicely detailed review that is easy to read and has some great visuals to support it. I definitely recommend giving it a read if you’ve been thinking about this game.

Pick of the Week

David from Another Anime Review covers episode 6-9 of My Roommate is a Cat. I’m really quite enjoying that anime and while it isn’t flawless by any means, it has been a fairly quiet and entertaining show this season and one that I’d love to see get a little more attention. Anyway, if you are curious as to how it is proceeding this is a great post to check out.
