This is shaping up to be a really fun summer season, and the coolest thing about it is that the shows I like are all being covered by my favorite bloggers. This increases my chances of actually following the shows, and hopefully my support of these bloggers will inspire them to continue their great work blogging these shows.
Animekritik is my favorite blogger ever, but most of his posts are about Leiji Matsumoto manga that I’ll never read and other obscure subjects. I always celebrate a chance to know what he’s on about, as I did when he blogged the entirety of Revolutionary Girl Utena. Now that Ikuhara’s back and bringing the heat again, so is animekritik.
Shinmaru‘s been in a rough patch lately watching tons and tons of really bad anime for some reason, and I fear it’ll turn him into a cynical blogger. Hopefully No. 6 can help him return to the light of blogging good anime and liking it. His first post certainly shows the love.
Otou-san hasn’t had the best luck with shows since coming to write for Sea Slugs. His first two episodic series were Yumekui Merry and [C], both of which went from promising beginnings to disappointing ends. Thankfully, Bunny Drop seems like the kind of show that can only be good. Otou-san’s blogging of it will help me decide not to put it on hold.
Schneider‘s idea of “The iDOLM@STER Weekly Character Ranking” is a perfect fit with the show’s style, and will lend to the kind of discussion of this show that even slightly matters: character fanboying. So far, Makoto is dominating the rankings in the comments, but I’ll be keeping watch every week to see where it goes.
I don’t think ghostlightning intends to blog all or even most of Sacred 7, but that doesn’t mean he won’t end up doing so. The mecha database animal seems to be getting his fill with this show, and he couldn’t help but blog about both of the first two episodes.
Aside from these shows, I’m (tentatively) watching Kamisama Dolls, Yuruyuri (which can be talked about on Twitter just fine), and Nekogami Yaoyorozu (which if anyone blogs, it’ll be me). This is a pretty awesome haul of reading for an awesome haul of shows, and summer looks to be an exciting season!
