#4 Random Curiosity
FOCUS POINTS: SEASONAL ANIME, WEEKLY REVIEWS, PREVIEWS
This blog is very well known for its weekly reviews on seasonal anime and even more known from their incredibly informative, creative and detailed anime previews. I mean, you can’t tell me that their recent fall 2017 preview didn’t help you decide which anime to watch this season. So, if you’re looking for a website that shares their opinion on lots of ongoing and new anime, then RandomCuriosity is the one made for you!
FOCUS POINTS: PODCAST, REVIEWS, DISCUSSIONS
If you’re a lover of commentary and criticism and have fun discussing the latest events in the anime/manga culture, then why not check out Ani-Gamers’ amazing podcast? And since this is a multi-author blog, you can be sure you’ll always have more than one opinion on each topic they discuss. And if you’re not the podcast type of otaku, then you should still check out their reviews and top 5/10 lists!
#6 Supaku Blog
FOCUS POINTS: WEEKLY REVIEWS, GAMING, CULTURE
Supaku stands for “Spark” and you’ll definitely find lots of sparks if you check out this blog. They cover everything from anime & manga to gaming – even to movies and Japanese culture! So, if you can’t find anything on this anime blog, I don’t know where! And if you’re into blogs that write on a more personal level, then you’ll have fun getting to know SparkNorkx!
#7 Wrong Every Time
FOCUS POINTS: REVIEWS, WEEKLY REVIEWS, ESSAYS
Bobduh is a creative writer with a passion for anime, combining both his creativity and love – and his blog “Wrong Every Time” is the result! He specializes in anime reviews and you can be sure that he covered your favorite anime already, whether through weekly reviews or through a normal one. He also writes super interesting essays on all kinds of anime-related topics, so check them out if you feel like mixing things up!
#8 Otaku Journalist
FOCUS POINTS: ANIME BLOGGING, ESSAYS
If anyone has anime blogging figured out, then it’s Lauren Orsini! She fulfilled the dream of everyone who owns a blog and makes a living off writing about the thing she loves most: anime. This is a blog not only for passionate viewers, but also for creators – and if you’re really interested in finding out how she became so successful with anime online, then I highly recommend her book “Build Your Anime Blog“. And if you don’t have a blog yourself, no worries: she also has some awesome posts on everything anime!
#9 Anime Maru
FOCUS POINTS: ANIME NEWS, PARODY
If you’re looking for a website that exclusively focuses on anime news, then Anime Maru is perfect for you…not! This blog does the exact opposite: it features fake anime news. And although some of you might think “Why should I read fake news?”, their posts are really creative and make up for a good laugh, I absolutely love this website!
#10 Rai’s Anime Blog
FOCUS POINTS: REVIEWS, YURI, SLICE-Of-LIFE
This blog goes deep into anime with analytical and detail-filled reviews. And if you’re a fan of the yuri genre or anything magical, loli or idols, then why haven’t you clicked the button that leads to Rai’s Anime Blog yet? This website is definitely for you!
#11 Sakuga Blog
FOCUS POINTS: PREVIEWS, IMPRESSIONS, ESSAYS
This is another website with incredibly informative and detailed seasonal previews – but that’s not the only kind of post this blog has to offer. Weekly impressions of seasonal anime, discussions about trending topics and all types of interesting write-ups about all sorts of anime. You will most definitely find an article you’ll love to read on Sakuga Blog!
#12 Mi Blog Otaku
FOCUS POINTS: BLOGGING, ESSAYS, IMPRESSIONS
Chito uses his blog to share his thoughts on certain anime or anime related topics with like-minded people. His posts vary from first impressions to list posts to essays about his thoughts and feelings on something. So, if personal blogs are your thing, then I would definitely recommend Mi Blog Otaku – and don’t get confused by the blog title: you can read it in Spanish, but don’t worry, there’s also an English version available!
#13 Seasonal Prattle
FOCUS POINTS: ADVICE, WEEKLY INSIGHT
An amazing idea and a different way of anime blogging: these 4 team members have set themselves the tasks of collecting the most interesting content of the week. They read hundreds of articles, listen to countless podcasts and watch all sorts of YouTube videos and pick the best ones of that week to feature them on Sunday’s. This is a blog definitely worth subscribing to, if you don’t have the time to search the web for interesting content and like the idea of getting a weekly roundup of the newest and best articles!
FOCUS POINTS: NEWS, REVIEWS, LISTS, GAMING
This website features everything from News to Reviews, Lists, Discussions and even Gaming! On OtakuSama you will definitely find the right articles for you, because there’s just a huuuge variety! Another compliment I’d like to give to this site is the design, which I absolutely love and which also fits well with the site content. So, you’ll love spending time on this blog for sure!
#15 Anime Feminist
FOCUS POINTS: REVIEWS, PREVIEWS, LISTS, FEMINISM
This is an interesting mix: a combination of anime and feminism. And this doesn’t mean that they talk about the basics of feminism or give you a lecture while reviewing an anime. It’s rather talking about anything anime related “through a feminist lens” – so, if feminism is something you’re interested in, then you’ll definitely love the combination of two of your interests. And even if you don’t follow the feminist aspect of the world I still highly recommend you check out this website – maybe you’ll find it interesting in combination with your favorite anime!
#16 Star Crossed
FOCUS POINTS: WEEKLY REVIEWS, IMPRESSIONS, REVIEWS
Psgels created this blog over a decade ago, back in 2005, and since then it has grown enormously. It’s now a multi-author blog with lots of different, detailed posts about all types of anime, but mainly seasonal ones. You will find lots of first impressions, which can help you with your decision on which anime to watch. But you can also read all their weekly reviews and any other type of review – this is the perfect website for anyone that needs a second opinion on a certain anime!
FOCUS POINTS: WEEKLY REVIEWS, IMPRESSIONS
This blog just celebrated its 7th-anniversary last month, and there are many more years to come! AngryAnimeBitches is a group of passionate writers who love to share their opinion on anime. They don’t have a specific genre they focus on, so you can find anything from action to slice-of-life. They mainly focus on weekly reviews and first impressions, so if that’s something you love to read, then I suggest you click that button below right away!
#18 Reverse Thieves
FOCUS POINTS: REVIEWS, ESSAYS, PODCAST
Alain and Kate don’t just write normal anime reviews. They really go deep when it comes to analyzing characters and the entire story, or how they like to put it, they “delve deep into character- and story-focused analysis of anime and manga”. If the anime world isn’t the only place you visit regularly, then you’ll probably like their posts on other fandoms as well. And if long articles aren’t your thing, then you should check out their amazing podcast!
#19 Honey’s Anime
FOCUS POINTS: NEWS, LISTS, WEEKLY RANKINGS
This is probably the most beautifully designed anime blog out there! On Honey’s Anime you will find a large team of writers sharing their top 10 horror anime or recommending lots of anime that are similar to the one you love. They also cover news, whether it’s anime, manga or even gaming – and if staying up-to-date with the current popular anime is your thing, then you should also definitely check out their weekly rankings!
FOCUS POINTS: ESSAYS, THOUGHTS & EXPERIENCES
You might not get a new editorial piece every day on this blog, but it’s always worth waiting for a new post. Omo shares his opinion on lots of different anime on his cute and simple blog. Surf through his adventures at anime conventions and thoughts on many topics while getting to know a fellow anime lover!
