43I am not currently adding blogs to my list, as the ones listed are either ones I read regularly, or belong to friends.  However, if your blog is about something you think I’d find interesting, go ahead and place a comment about it!

  • Anime Evo
    One of my preferred episodic blogs with occasional editorial posts and news coverage. They have a handful of wonderful writers who are quick to respond to comments and questions.
  • Anime Instrumentality
    This is my go-to blog for anything anime + music, including soundtrack reviews, composer analysis, concert coverage, and so much more. I also did a guest post with zzeroparticle on the anime music we each used for our weddings.
  • Anime Tree
    Anime Tree covers a bit of episodic blogging, favorite music of the week, and rare manga reviews from a small team of writers. Weekly music is posted pretty regularly on Wednesdays.
  • Avvesione’s Anime Blog
    Avvesione may not be as active of a blogger these days, but when he is, expect weekly reviews of currently airing anime as well as comprehensive season previews. I also never miss an opportunity to say hi to my fellow Washingtonian at Sakura-Con each year.
  • Beneath the Tangles
    I’ve been following Tangles since it was a team of one under Charles, and now that several writers have joined you can expect frequent discussions on anime with distinctly spiritual angles. I also appeared as a guest on one of their earlier podcast episodes if you’d like to listen!
  • deluscar
    Deluscar mostly features anime editorials, as well as anime and game reviews, and various thoughts on Japanese culture.
  • Draggle’s Anime Blog
    Draggle is a cut-throat anime reviewer of few words. No one else I know can summarize an entire show as quickly as he can with a single screenshot or sentence. No one else opposes my opinions as completely as he does; if he loves a show, I’ll likely hate it. If I love it, he deems it the worst series ever.
    Draggle also holds the honor of introducing me to my husband, KWoo.
  • Fantastic Memes
    Fantastic Memes is the personal anime blog of Froggy-kun, whom you may know as a Crunchyroll writer or as a freelance Japanese-English translator. Most of the editorial posts center on anime, but do include manga, light novels, conventions, and Japanese culture.
  • Figure Culture
    Figure Culture shares and reviews anime figures, focusing mainly on their Malaysian audience.
  • For Me in Full Bloom
    I can always count on Emily’s blog to stir my heart with its thoughtful editorials. Many of her anime interests overlap with my own, and I heartily recommend following her if you are interested in flower language. As a former Crunchyroll writer, she also covers a wide range of genres and topics.
  • GAR GAR Stegosaurus
    Anime reviews, manga reviews, mecha Mondays, fanfiction, Day’s interests are all over the place, but always interesting.
  • Isn’t It Electrifying?
    Isn’t It Electrifying hosts an impressive crew who doesn’t write nearly enough for the quality of discussion they command. You’ll get more frequent contact following them individually on Twitter, but do subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss out on the live and past shows that catch their attention.
  • Itadakimasu Anime! | Eating my way through anime, one recipe at a time…
    This is my one-stop blog for anime food recipes! Blue Variance almost always finds good eats with each airing season and writes up recipes that taste delicious and are easy to follow even for beginner chefs.
  • Lost in Anime
  • Mainichi Anime Yume, and now Yume Dimension
  • Mage in a Barrel
  • Metanorn
  • Random Curiosity
  • Riyoga’s Ramblings
  • simpleek
  • Star Crossed Anime Blog

  1. Hello Marina,
    After quite a couple of months I decided. Do you want to trade links for the sake of fighting back entropy?! /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\


  2. Hello Marina~
    I had been checking up and reading your blog for quite awhile.. and thought.. why not have a collaboration and conquer the world? ;D

    Uhhhhh nvm. To cut a long story short, mind to have a link exchange with me? ;D


  3. Hello Marina. I like your blog immensely and would love to be your blogger friend.
    If you are free, please take a look at my old shabby blog and if you are interested, let’s trade links. Thanks 🙂


  4. Your glorious blog makes me feel like I should work harder in fixing mine. I’ll go with the comment flow and ask if you want to trade links even though I am truly unworthy of it.


    • Hey-o, ahelo! I would love to exchange links with you :3 I’m already a lurker on your blog and just need to work up the courage to actually comment!


  5. Hi Marina. I just discovered your blog thanks to the “Remembering Love” series are found out about the anime inspired recipes you write about. I used to do these on an older blog I had and it brings good memories to see these type of posts again 🙂
    Would you be interested in exchanging blogroll links with me?

    • As much as I love music, I would rather not link my blog to any site with the sole purpose of hosting files like music, tv episodes, movies, etc. Please understand!


  6. Hello there!

    I stumbled upon your site recently, and as I am always interested in growing in the community I was wondering if you might look upon my site ( and let me know whether you’d be interested in an affiliation. 🙂

    Thank you!

  8. Hey Marina, hope you are doing well! Heading out to Anime Expo again this year?

    Just wanted to mention that I’ve recently put up a complete redesign of my website. The domain hasn’t changed, but I noticed that the link in your blogroll points to my old blog. If you could please update the link to just, it’d be much appreciated! I also added you to our new affiliates page!

    Many thanks, hope to see you again at AX this year. :3


    • I’ll be passing on AX this year in exchange for a 2-week Japan trip 🙂 I’m sad I won’t see everyone this year, but super excited to visit Japan for the first time. I am, however, going to Sakuracon (this weekend).

      Thanks for the update on your blog’s link; I’ll get that changed right away.


      • Aw, it’s too bad you won’t be coming down, but hey, you’ll be going to the real deal instead! Sounds really exciting, so I look forward to reading your post-trip writeup! 😀

        Many thanks for changing the link as well!


  9. Hey Marina, just wanted to notify you that Daifuuku! has recently come out of hiatus. We’ve gone through a rebranding so we’re now Café Daifuuku.
    Anime B&B is still on our blogroll. However if you want to wait a month or so before removing the ‘hiatus’ that’s fine with us! Thanks for keeping us on your blogroll!


  10. I love your blog theme; Nichijou is a favorite of mine. I enjoyed your top 30 list, too- Ed & Ein are great characters- and I’d really appreciate it if you’d consider adding me to your blogroll.


    • Thanks! My banners do change, but I have mostly Hakase-themed touches with my avatar and my Twitter. I keep meaning to update my Top 30 list since it’s constantly changing with each season.

      I’ll take a look at your blog! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
