Japanator Loves: Random Curiosity


More than the title of the blog suggests

[Japanator Loves is a special semi-regular feature we do to highlight other cool sites in the otaku community --Josh]

We're all about variety here at Japanator, and the recaps. We love to bring you our opinions in a timely fashion of course, but we're all for others sharing theirs as well. When I want to know how someone else feels about the latest episode of Golden Time or some such, I hit up the anime blogs with the loveliest images after reading our own Annotated Anime. Random Curiosity is a go-to collection of recaps and other excellent anime writing when I'm hankering to see what's going on with shows I don't keep up with. 

What drew me to Random Curiosity is its simple and clean navigation. Utada Hikaru isn't pasted all over or anything, but it does look professional, free of fluff, and organized. A list of current series is available as a handy sidebar to the right of the page, with dropdown menus to take you to the episode you'd like to read about. You can also access individual series via menus at the top of the page, so there are several ways to get where you want to go. Quick and easy!

I also really dig the abundance of high quality screen caps that accompany each episode. There's a veritable gallery of screens to choose from, and they're all crisp and clear. The "theme" of each episode as well as its title is included as well, in case you're curious about such things. It's a neat and comprehensive layout overall, and while much of the content covers anime and manga, there are some interesting pieces sprinkled throughout should you choose to delve a little deeper into what the staff has to say about various other subjects. 

It's an impressive collection of recaps, a razor-sharp set of screens for each show, and a layout that's aesthetically pleasing. If you're reading Japanator for recaps, consider adding Random Curiosity to your reading list as well. You'll be pleasantly surprised!
