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.

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.

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.

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.

Pick of the Week

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.

  1. Hey Karandi, once again thanks for the shout-out. In spite of being really new to this, the support I’ve received from yourself and others in the community is really quite overwhelming.

    1. You’re welcome. I’ve really enjoyed following Mecha March this year and there seem to be a few more people getting involved in it.

      1. You and everyone who said that or similar made this experience so worth it. I enjoyed the fact that other people wanted to get involved too. Maybe that is something to take into account for next year. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. WOW!! I can not be more jealous just kidding , I have always wanted to travel to japan .best wishes on your adventure ahead.

  3. Have fun in Japan! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures!

    Also thank you for the shout-out! For such a little blurb, I’m really glad you enjoyed my post!

    1. You’re welcome. It was a fun post to read. And I’m really looking forward to the trip and can’t wait to share some photos with everyone.

    1. I’ve just got the final preparations to go and at the moment planning a day trip to go and view mount fuji. Really looking forward to it.

      1. Iโ€™m of course totally not jealous or anything ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Seriously though…so cool! I hope you will have a lot of fun: you deserve it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Thanks for the mention. Itโ€™s going to be odd not waiting for the next episode of The Promised Neverland in Thursday. Some great posts there, especially the SEO stuff. Have fun in Tokyo.

    1. Definitely planning on having fun.
      There were some really good posts last week and I’m kind of sad that I won’t be putting this round up together for the next few weeks but hopefully I’ll keep finding some great content to read.

      1. Itโ€™s good to take a break every now and then. I stopped posting while I was away with the exception of The Promised Neverland and itโ€™s freeing. Now I donโ€™t feel like I have to post everyday and itโ€™s helped me change my schedule for the next while.

I'd love to know what you think.
