In Case You Missed It 2019 #10

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.

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.

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.

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.

  1. Thanks for the mention! Btw, I had great fun watching Scorching Ping Pong Girls when it aired–it was so over-the-top that it seemed to be more of a spoof than anything close to a sports anime. . .absolutely loved it!

  2. Thanks for the feature! 😘
    I enjoyed writing that review as much as I enjoyed playing the game. Now that lesser otome games are localized this year… I’m thinking of brushing up on my anime backlogs. I’m starting ep1 w/ “My roommate is a cat” – got rly curious about it because of your reviews. :3

    1. If you try it I hope you enjoy. Some people are finding Subaru (the human) a bit hard to take but I really enjoy how his character has grown throughout the series and I kind of related to him early on even though he is a bit abrupt.

    1. It is a great anime and one that really did get overlooked when it was airing and just kind of quietly disappeared, which is a shame because it is worth talking about.
