[Last updated: 9/29/13] Welcome to the most comprehensive list of active English-language otakublogs on the internet. (I wish I was joking, but it seriously is.)

Note: If you’re reading this in the future (2044 or later), you’re gonna want to realize that clicking on any old anime blog links is risky — most anibloggers are complete shitbags and let their domains lapse, meaning asshole spammers grab the domains and put malware and shit on them. Browse carefully.

Qualifications for Inclusion

The blog must be primarily otaku-focused.

The blog must still be alive (I took this to mean 3 or more posts since July 1st 2013.)

Corporate blogs excluded (DannyChoo, AnimeNewsNetwork, Siliconera, Crunchyroll, Tomopop, Japanator).

I must have some way of knowing about it.

The site’s gotta actually be navigable. If I have to use Google to find more than 6 articles on your site, I’m not gonna visit again (yes, this was an issue with multiple blogs).

And if your site resembles tumblr, you’re also disqualified. Fuck you.

 

 

How?

Lots of (wasted) time over the past three days. Several reviews’ worth, in fact.

I took every active blog from the Aniblog Tournaments (you may remember us winning the second tourney), every active blog from every aniblog directory and every active blog I could remember. Then I visited every blog on each of those site’s blogrolls and grabbed the active ones, repeating the process until I finally had nothing left to click.

This is as comprehensive a list as you can ever expect to get.

 

 

“But my blog wasn’t included!”/”You got something wrong.”

Dark_Sage can do no wrong, but he may consider accepting your alternate reality if you use the comments section.

 

 

Cool. But so what? I’m not gonna go through all those blogs.

What the fuck did you expect from a post titled “Anime Blogs: A List”? You got your fucking list; you should be happy.

But you’re right. There isn’t really much analysis here and I can’t expect you to waste all your time going through that. Luckily for you, I’ll spend my time on this shit instead.

You heard me. I’m starting up the Aniblog Tournament anew. October 2013, USA. Prepare your body. (Details to come.)

 

 

But…

Okay, fine, have some analysis courtesy of Wolfram Alpha:

Graph

Comment averages on the vertical index.

Data1

Data2

Data3

And following the bullshit 80/20 rule, you’re part of the elite 20% if your blog has an average of more than 5 comments per post.

Winner!

Winner!

Now here’s why this is a terrible measure of objective blog popularity: AnimeNewsNetwork (one of the biggest, most popular anime sites around) averages 2.5 comments per article by my count, putting it at “unpopular” rank. Yeah, not quite the case.

Is it a worthless value? No, but it’s not a great one. Anything better would require lots of effort. So, seriously, don’t take those numbers to heart; I’m only using them to determine initial tourney seeds.

 

Okay, now back to shit you actually care about. Posts tonight.

Anon says:

TL;DR reviews soon

corocoro says:

TL;DR reviews for Summer dropped. See you in Autumn.

RaccoonGoon says:

How/Why did you have time for this? Seriously, I was expecting a troll list in the spoiler, and I got a decent, possibly useful list.

Thanks. I’ll keep this in mind the next time I’m looking to waste even more time reading other people’s opinions.

Dark_Sage says:

The time came from the magic of not sleeping.

As for my reason? Well, an aniblog king must keep tabs on his aniblog kingdom. I can’t have rumors going around that I’m ignoring my responsibilities, after all.

2ColouredEyes says:

rumors vs. fact

And that Katawa ‘Shoujo’ pic, you chose her arc? I tried to end up with the translator ‘Shoujo’ but I got tied up with the mute ‘Shoujo’.

Dark_Sage says:

I may or may not have played the demo, then heaped praise on the game once it came out despite not having ever touched it again.

Jii-san says:

So why isn’t crymore on the list?

Dark_Sage says:

1. I knew the metric for “popularity” ahead of time, allowing me to sneaky sneak the Crymore score up if I wanted to.

2. Said metric wouldn’t result in Crymore at #1 (unless I super sneaked). Unacceptable.

wave says:

0/10 no doujin translators

Dark_Sage says:

There were tons of blogs I found with doujin/VN/manga/anime translation groups.

But I wouldn’t really call those sites “blogs” so much as “release platforms”… and I wouldn’t exactly be able to use them for what I have planned with the upcoming tourney.

Hairy says:

Ah, so the whole point was that you’re now going to conduct your own tourney, much like the one you lost last year.

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t recall having lost anything – ever – in my life. You must be mistaken.

No says:

>I don’t recall having lost anything – ever – in my life.

>I woke up this morning to messages on IRC from people telling me I had lost trusted status on Nyaa. (This is where you gasp.)

Dark_Sage says:

*gasp*

corocoro says:

The memory’s the first thing to go, you know?

stgmefly says:

Why would I wanna visit anime blogs?? What do you think I am some kinda weeaboo??

Justinnnnnn says:

>Lost in Anime: “shitty episodic reviews”

:( I was expecting something EVIL-AXIS-related…

Justinnnnnn says:

last aniblog, enzo vs sage :)

Dark_Sage says:

I think I sorta remember that now. As I recall, not very many anibloggers liked me. Now I’m feeling sad. :(

Justinnnnnn says:

That’s because you’re awesome sir. Here, have a smiley face :)

I run a shitty blog here.

Please add it to your list of shitty blogs, okay?

Dark_Sage says:

Added~~~~~

chesterscheetos says:

What are your actual thoughts on randomc? The people who write the articles are pretty autistic and have awful taste, but they have a decent knowledge of tv tropes and write good articles for people who don’t pick up on thematic elements.

Dark_Sage says:

They’re a cancer.

Every single post is the same soulless “TONS OF IMAGES FOR GREAT SEO” followed by a wall of text written by people whose intelligence levels would call for their euthanasia in any civilized country.

And that comments system has to be even worse than anything even Crymore ever had (except the one night some of you may remember where we had upvotes and downvotes… that was a bad night):
http://www.crymore.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Kill-Me-Now.jpg (Slight Dangan spoilers, but you shouldn’t waste time reading what they have to say. Just look at how bad the system looks and move on.)

Everything about that site is a stain on the internet.

yo says:

I used to use that site for watching shows without actually watching them – they post pictures of what, every minute? Thirty seconds? I can’t imagine the bandwidth load is worth it, but overall it saved me twenty-two minutes & having to torrent.

Dark_Sage says:

You know, that makes a whole lot more sense than anyone actually reading the shit posted on that site. I can believe in justice again.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh yeah, I forgot I actually wrote an article about that shithole.

WithoutAnyDecency says:

I’m dissapointed that Moe Sucks hasn’t even managed three articles since July 1st.

Mouse says:

Nice post, a lot of time spent…

I found the post incidentaly by someone clicking on the link in your post back to my site lol

Keep blogiing :)

Dark_Sage says:

Thanks for the generic praise.

fohfuu says:

Why are anime reviewers such fags, D_S?
That sounds pretty pointed, and I wish I could just aim it at one person, but every reviewer I’ve come across has been a try hard and/or a meme spouter.

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t even know where to begin with answering that. There’s so much that’s wrong with anibloggers…

Mm, I guess their primary issue is that they don’t know how to write with an actual voice or interact with people. So instead, everything comes off as forced and ungenuine, and it makes you feel like punching them off the internet. A more encompassing look at this subject would require more space than these comments can contain and more pejoratives than the English language has.

Guy says:

You’ve missed me.

I am not surprised though.

Dark_Sage says:

I actually did go to your site a couple times while making this (you were blogrolled a few times, IIRC). Ended up just not including ya because of your latest ten articles, four weren’t about anime at all. After that, you talk about The Hobbit, Oz, and Django, which indicates to me it’s more of a western movie-eastern cartoon blog. Which is fine, it just ain’t what screams otakublog to me.

That being said, I didn’t exactly feel strongly about leaving you off. So lemme throw you back in.

Guy says:

I actually think analyzing all media is the same, and do take pains to include some western TV/an actual book review now and then.

Also, out of my last 10 entries, I’d only say two aren’t anime-related – Monsters University and Pacific Rim. The entry about Determinators is pan-media, and talks about one of the reasons I actually watch anime (specifically shounen).
The Cartoon demographics mostly stems out of my disagreement with stuff like “Seinen” and “Shounen” being meaningful distinctions :3

I do wonder, am I an editorial blog, or a review blog? I don’t literally review most things, I use the shows to pontificate on an issue that I find relevant/or that they make me think of.

Ah, 3 years ago though I’d probably get put under “Figures” :D

Dark_Sage says:

Editorials it is then. For the purpose of compiling this list I didn’t have much time to do anything other than skim the titles and read little bits of text, so I do imagine I miscategorized a few blogs.

feal87 says:

The drama of the Aniblog Tourney is back? *cheers*

Probably this may be of use for you :

http://pastebin.com/QTzy3uzA

Here is the full list of blog (linked on AnimeNano) that has a post in the last 30 days. I’m gathering this info automatically every day through one of my software for…well…reasons! *shifts gaze*

P.S. Read your message on IRC too late. Blogroll link seems working alright here though…

Dark_Sage says:

Huh, I thought I’d been through AnimeNano completely, but it looks like I missed out on 2 blogs. Which in turn led to 2 more from those blogs’ blogrolls.

All right, thanks man. Added:
http://tokyojupiter.com/
http://denpawaves.wordpress.com/
http://ninetysblog.wordpress.com/
http://animeanemoscope.wordpress.com/

And yeah, works on my end too. Musta been a glitch.

feal87 says:

It looks like our time-zones are quite different, because you always write something on the channel while I’m sleeping.

Either way, I created the software to gather this info as a time killer. The number has been dwindling over the last two years :

2011 – 408 dead 235 alive
2012 – 490 dead 239 alive (86 new blogs and 82 blogs died)
Today – 630 dead 162 alive (63 new blogs and 140 blogs died)

If it continues this way we’ll be under 100 blogs active within 2 years.

Not that I care about it anyway…:D

DrGonzo says:

I appreciate being a part of the list!

Etoce says:

1) You misspelled “Desu Ex Machina”.

2) I have a story about that site.

Once upon a time, I was talking with this guy. He was doing something, and encountered a thing that was noteworthy somehow.

“Hahahaha,” he went. “This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen!”

“Oh? What is it?” I replied.

He answered, but I don’t remember what it was.

I replied, “That reminds me of this really memorable thing I saw once, but I don’t remember where. Actually, I don’t remember what it was, either. It was really similar, though.”

“I like how it was really memorable, but you don’t remember anything about it other than that there was this thing that was vaguely similar,” he replied.

“Well, come to think of it, I think the title of the blog was a pun, where the first word was a Japanese word and there were a few words after it that weren’t.”

“What kind of thing was it?”

“An anime blog, I think.”

“Was it like the greatest anime blog ever?”

“Maybe.”

“Does anyone even read anime blogs? Who fucking decides to just start writing one of those?”

“I read this guy’s blog once. I think he was from Minnesota.”

“It must be the best blog ever, then. Do you remember anything else about it?”

“No.”

And he goes back to his activities.

Ten minutes later, he comes back.

“Is this it?”

“Yeah, that’s it, Desu Ex Machina.”

“It really is the greatest name for a blog ever.”

“Yeah.”

Dark_Sage says:

1. Fix’d.
2. Oh.

John Samuel says:

This is a useful list, but made less so by the harshness of some of the descriptions.

E.g. “Shitty episodic reviews”, “Christian propaganda, the nasty comment re the often excellent Gagging on Sexism.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh Jesus, I’m so sorry.

You’re absolutely right, of course. It’s possible I could offend someone with the terminology I used, and as we all know, tepidness is the spice of life. Let me go ahead and fix that.

Dark_Sage says:

Update: I ended up reverting back to the original descriptors. Sorry dude, I just realized it would be immoral to propagate your PC privilege. Please understand. /(・ω・/)

John Samuel says:

To quote General Morrison: The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

I do not want to associated with your standards of behaviour.

Please remove Pirates of the Burley Griffin from this list.

Dark_Sage says:

lol no

Dark_Sage says:

You are forgiven <3

Kamica says:

Does this qualify as an anime blog?
http://jesuotaku.com/

Dark_Sage says:

It qualifies as a site I spent about 30 seconds on, trying to figure out how to get to other posts before eventually giving up on it. That was one of the sites that fell afoul of the “The site’s gotta actually be navigable.” rule.

Dude says:

This is a boring list, but made slightly less so by the harshness of some of the descriptions.

Should’ve been more harsh comments and less neutral and plain descriptions. You disappoint me, Seiji.

Dark_Sage says:

It’s meant to be rather boring for now. Expect commentary later.

Marow says:

To be honest, this was a rather nice thing. Been meaning to see which anime blogs are alive lately, but this saves me some time. Would’ve loved to see some comments, but hey, I guess that’s for the:

“You heard me. I’m starting up the Aniblog Tournament anew. October 2013, USA. Prepare your body. (Details to come.)”

sorry, but I’m looking forward to this if you mean it.

Dark_Sage says:

I do. You’ll find nearly all the problems with the first two tourneys dealt with in mine, though I hope that’s not too much of a spoiler for the first round.

Netto says:

I’m so happy that my site is listed.

*cheers*

Silvachief says:

Thanks for the inclusion. I was surprised (and a little bit chuffed) to see my site up there ^_^

Reiseng says:

Wow, this was actually really cool of you, Dark Sage. (Not that I am implying you are not normally cool or anything.)

Thanks a lot! This list will come in handy someday.

Hairy says:

I bet D_S just did this for the adulation and comments he would receive from other bloggers.

Dark_Sage says:

You know it.

Caraniel says:

Timed my return to blogging well – just made the criteria! Cool list, will have to see if I can find some new sites to read – thanks for putting this together.

nil says:

Woah I wish I saw this more recently. I’m liking the hate on episodic blogs too. The format isn’t intrinsically bad, but it also makes a writer lazy to not always deal with original content. Also, let’s be honest. How many really say much past diluting their thoughts with paraphrased synopses?

Toonleap says:

Ohayo Dark Sage.
Thanks for adding “Cartoon Leap” to the mix. I must add that CL is not only about Shitty episodic reviews. It deals with Japan News, Oddities, a image here and there and miscellaneous stuff. You can check it in the menu.

This year, I focused on Shitty episodic reviews because of “hosting” issues. It is a long story, but anyway, feel free to change the description and add other things, besides the shitty episodic reviews. Sorry for my english. Thats not my native language, but I am trying my best.
Thanks for the link.

Dark_Sage says:

Breaking down everything every blog does would be troublesome. I focused on what it looked like each blog focused on. And out of the last 12 posts on your site, 9 are episodic reviews.

Since you’re not a native speaker, you probably don’t get my writing style. I have not judged your posts yet (oh, but I will), so just be aware that “shitty” is not my actual take on your site yet. I just use that for every episodic blog because I don’t like the concept behind them.

Toonleap says:

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I noticed tons of “shitty” episode reviews sites there. I am curious about whats the concept you dont like about episodic blogs. Learning something will help me improve.

Last year, I posted about everything. From ridiculous news that happened in Japan to reviews of everything.

Due to problems with my previous hosting company, I had to take the site off. Just this year, I put it back online. The reason behind why I started doing episode reviews was to test my writing style. I had some guest reviewers that did a great job. Right now, I am alone and see if I learned from them.

I am just posting any random news from now on because most of the anime series I watched ended. Just waiting for the new season.

Anywyay, to keep things shorts (a little bit late on that)…thanks for reading and clear things out. :)

Dark_Sage says:

It’s rare for me to find any thought or analysis beyond the norm in episodic reviews. That’s not to say it’s impossible, but I don’t often come across people saying something that makes me think “Wow, this person has a lot of insight. I’d like to read their site more to expand my own horizons/be entertained by them.” All I usually end up with is stupid reactions or -ugh- summaries. And if it’s just summaries, why the fuck would anyone bother visiting the site instead of Wikipedia?

Toonleap says:

Guest reviewers indeed did a better job tham me on that. Hope you can read those.

Due to my limited use on english, it is hard to do analysis but I will do my best and give more thoughts on reviews… Thanks.. :D

NovaJinx says:

If I actually possessed writing talent I sure as hell wouldn’t be posting on a fucking anime blog.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh, where would you write then?

NovaJinx says:

Hell if I know, wherever talented writers go. Sure don’t see them much around these hoods.

Dark_Sage says:

Talented writers go to office jobs, but you don’t exactly need to quit aniblogging to do that.

ZakuAbumi says:

I hope it’s not too late for me to reject your claim that my site is not navigable.

Dark_Sage says:

It’s hideous, but I’ll accept it.

dave merrill says:

“old people editorials”? Really?

Dark_Sage says:

You focus on older anime/manga. Did you really think you were gonna attract 12-year-olds or something?

Kamica says:

You forgot the best anime blog:

http://leetshoe.blogspot.com/

Sheep says:

http://jphinano.wordpress.com/ I ctrl+f’d and didn’t find this. Aniblog by exfansubbers that had a post last January and is seemingly mostly inactive / dead.

About page: http://jphinano.wordpress.com/about/

Only has one writer and the other former writer only writes on their game blog now, which has otome game articles on it: http://breadmasterlee.com/

Formerly minaidehazukashii.com which I also ctrl’d and didn’t find so yeah.

Sheep says:

Just noticed that breadmasterlee was on it but yeah w/e
