Accepting Random Anime Recommendations

A big thank you to all who contributed ideas in the last post for my 500 follower celebration. After looking at everyone’s ideas, I chose Aria‘s comment as the winning suggestion (but will combine a few other ideas with this):

Maybe take recommendations from your followers (anime-only if you want to stick to your theme, or anything if you’re game for it), grab a random number generator and watch what you’re dealt…it’ll be interesting!

You may not know this before, but I have an unhealthy obsession with Google’s random number generator. I use it to decide what exercise to do each day, what to cook/bake, when to write a post and what to write, even which friend to hang out with sometimes. I have an elaborate system for these things… So it’s not like I don’t already use the random number generator to decide on what anime I watch, but wouldn’t it be fun if others do the recommending?

Here’s how it’s gonna go: suggest me an anime title and I will review it episodically (under 24 episodes) or write a posts on it as a whole after finishing ( over 24 episodes). *If you specify that the anime you suggest is your favourite, I will count it as 2 entries when I do the random number generating. I love judging getting to know people based on their favourites!

In addition, since a few of you have reached out for a collab in the recent past, feel free to specify in your comment if you’re interested in collaborating with me on reviewing the series if it wins!

I won’t give you a list of what I have and haven’t seen because my record-keeping isn’t great, but if I’ve seen it already, I’m happy to do a re-watch. I will also say here that I generally have little patience for gratuitous fan-service and anything too aggressively shounen, but do what you wish with this information. You may choose to torture me.

It’s all good


The second-most popular celebration option was a Q&A, but you know, my blog doesn’t have much of a story and I can’t imagine anyone aspiring to be the kind of blogger I am (easy, you just have to post at the frequency of lunar eclipses), so it’s not exactly worth putting out an entire post on. If you’re curious about me, I probably exposed myself too freely in any award/tag post. That being said, if you’re dying to ask me a question, you can still ask me anything and I will answer it in my next post regarding this milestone.

Thanks again for all your lovely support, and I look forward to watching whatever you have in store for me! Tell me what I should watch here in the comment section or on Twitter!

  1. Hope you don’t mind me randomly popping in to drop an anime recommendation (xD) but yeah no, I shall put forth “Mawaru Penguindrum” in the hopes that you haven’t watched it yet. I’d say it’s an early favorite of mine so yeah 😀

    And, well, this is for a separate post altogether, but all the same, safe travels Moya!

    1. There is no post under which Leap-senpai isn’t welcome! I have in fact watched it, but this is the second time it’s been recommended for this watch and I’ll gladly re-watch it if it wins!

  2. None of these suggestions are my favorites, but I think they’re interesting titles that I recall fondly. I’d say either Alice to Zouroku or Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen. Looking forward to seeing what the results are!

  3. Cool idea!

    ‘Arte’ was something that I think was a little overlooked this season – it’s short and at times really sweet, but also the historical setting of Florence and Venice was a real draw for me 🙂

  4. Kino’s Journey: The Beautiful World. There’s the 2003 version followed up by several individual OVAs over the next few years. Then there is the 2017 reboot. It makes me wish I still had my old motorrad and caused the wanderlust to bubble up in my soul.

  5. I will never not recommend “A Place Further Than the Universe”. It’s still one of the most stunning anime I’ve ever seen. I don’t know that I’m interested in a collaboration, but feel free to quote from my weekly reviews.

    1. Thank you! I have stopped taking in new anime recommendations for that project, but I’ve heard plenty of praise for Resonance in Terror and will keep it in mind.
