September (2020) Monthly Favorites

Hello Again Bloggers that come here once a month to check out my hand-picked recommendations from around the blog-o-sphere. I appreciate you guys coming back monthly to check it out.

As for me, still more hanging out and hanging in. I did a bit of my social-distancing travel, kept to myself before, during and after. Truly not much to report on my end, and you know in time like these, I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

For the first time in forever, I am plugging a Youtube video for you to check out. My personal friend has posted her animation for Jekyll & Hyde. It’s a little animated short and it’s super fun. I hope guys take the time to check it out. It would mean the world to me and my friend.


First up was the pleasent surprise of a blog titled, “Tsurune, Anime tv series (2018)“by Raistlin903. I adored this series back when I first watched it, and I’m glad Raistlin enjoyed it and reviewed it as well!

With a question I’ve been contemplating lately as well is Yomu with “Should the Underdog Always Win in Anime?“. Yomu has articulated in their own thoughts about the trouped nature of underdog stories in anime, mostly just how unrealistic they can be.

I’m so glad that someone else got the chance to see this! In “When Anime Puts Its Best Foot Forward – Children of the Sea Movie Review” by Weeb Revues reminded me of one of my favorite films from last year. Check out their review, and please check out this film!!

I think a lot of us forget about titles after they finish airing for the season. That might just be me though. Anyway, it made me happy that there are still reviews coming in for past seasons anime, and Lofzodessy has done just that with “Anime Hajime Review: The Case Files of Jeweler Richard“. There was a lot of points I had missed in my own review. So definitely worth a read if you reviewed or viewed since your sure to see something new.

And hey, it’s The Manga & Anime Club covering my favorite from last year, “Dororo(2019) Anime Review“. Which their review was much more level headed then my own, and worth checking out if you still haven’t seen this series.


This is a first time to the blog, so welcome Written on a Whim with their blog, “Manga Review — Kannou Sensei“. It’s solid review, about a series I knew nothing about. So be sure to check it out!

In addition, we have Two Happy Cats giving us the rundown on a new manga reader, izneo. The full run-down on the good, bad and meh is here: “izneo Manga Reader App Review“. Happy reading!

JDramas and JMovies

On a more serious discussion of my favorite film director, Akira Kurosawa. Bondan Syamsu wrote the blog, “FILM BROWSE: CONTEMPORARY KUROSAWA“, which is a bit more serious in tone analysis. A must read for other Kurosawa fans.

Covering a series that popping off in JDrama community, but I’m not watching, we have Missinelly with “Currently Watching: Miman Keisatsu: Midnight Runner“. If you haven’t heard about this series yet, give this blog a read and find out if you need to catch up!

From Dramas with a side of Kimchi we have one of my favorites from this year, their thoughts on “The Fangirls’ Japanese Drama Review: Under the Miracle Cherry Tree“. I love this series and want to support anyone else whose watched and reviewed so here you go!

Off of WordPress, but on topic is from MyDramaList by Old Anime Lady with “Old Anime Lady Dishes About: Japanese Sports Titles“. Combining two of my long-term favorites in a fun manner? Count me in and check it out for your next recommendation!


Talk about good timing. I was wondering when we were going to hear from the ladies of EXIST†TRACE again. Fear not, we have our answer! A new full interview from It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll, is up here as “EXIST†TRACE (JULY 2020)“. Be sure to check it out, as it has a lot of details about their newest release and working on new material during the quarantine!

From Idol is Shit, we have a “[Review] Los An Jewels – Rainbows“. Another blog and group that deserves more love. So be sure to check it out!

In addition, we also have the fashion anylasis we’ve been missing these past few months of none other then Arashi. Thanks to Arashi Fashion Squad in their blog, “MUSINGS: Carine & Alyssa Discuss Looks from Arashi’s PV “Whenever You Call”“, we get the full run down of the iconic outfits of the latest MV.

Brewing up some good tea as always is evening tea musings with “Kpop Meets Jpop: Who Should Collab?“. It’s a fun post talking about some existing collaborations, and fun ideas for hopefully future ones as well! Be sure to check out the Part II here!

Wrapping Up

    • You’re most welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed her animation! I had no idea that it was trendy or a thing, but I’ve been watching more of them recently.
