Mari’s birthday special: My Favorite Anime Blogs

Today I turn 25… for the 6th time. I don’t really have much planned for today for obvious reasons, but I wanted to give y’all a gift. And by “gift” I mean “more anime blog recommendations”. I think we all follow each other anyways, so some of these might be redundant, but I also wanted to give them a shout out.

These aren’t ranked or anything, the order is just when they popped into my head. If your blog isn’t on here, don’t fret. I just didn’t have room for it, but I might still do more of these later. Enjoy!

I Drink and Watch Anime

Irina has a new post every single day, which honestly makes my blog feel a bit lazy in comparison. And her posts are great every time, with a knack for good humor and flow. I especially enjoy her character analysis posts and her collaborations with other bloggers. She also just did a review of my favorite anime, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, which I think is one of her best posts yet! Overall, IDAWA is a light and breezy blog that never seems to run out of ideas and is always a blast to read.

Pinkie’s Paradise

Pinkie’s blog is fun, fluffy, always a pleasure to rewatch, and very, well, pink! She always has good insights on the anime she watched, and often branches out to other fun nerdy topics like Pokemon or bad video game movies. She’s been doing a great write up of several anime including Samurai Flamenco, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and Flip Flappers each weekend. Which makes me very happy, because Flip Flappers is one of my top 10 favorite anime and y’all need to watch it! But I digress. Pinkie is great and you should check her blog out!

Shallow Dives in Anime

One of the things I love about blogging is being able to talk to people with all kinds of different thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And what made Dewbond’s blog stand out for me is his multi-part, not at all shallow analysis of Sword Art Online. It’s not my favorite anime or anything, but I think it was great to see so much love and thoughtfulness for a show that is often mocked and maligned in the community. Shallow Dives has a lot to offer for anime fans of all stripes, and I always appreciate a new post.

Crow’s World of Anime

With all the love he’s shown my blog, I have to return the favor, right? Crow does a great job highlighting the best of the anime blogosphere (do people still say that?) every week, and collaborates a ton with other writers. But his blog has a lot to offer on its own, with a thoughtfulness you don’t get much on the internet. Give Crow some love for me, will ya?


This blog does it all. They don’t just write about anime, but all different kinds of Asian pop culture – Chinese TV dramas, books from India, you name it. They are clearly well read and put a lot of research and insight for each post. And their style is easy and charming to read, while still being personal and unique. Check out BiblioNyan for a fresh take on your favorite media, and to get introduced to some new stuff you might never have even thought of before!

Anyway, that’s all for me. I didn’t want to make this too long because I’ve had a hectic week and the Re:Zero post took longer than usual to finish. And if you want me to do a write up on your blog, let me know. Maybe I’ll do it next year. Regardless, I hope you enjoy some of these fantastic blogs. Be sure to give each of them a follow if you haven’t already!
