  1. CR started listing their summer roster (debuting July)

    https://www.crunchyroll.com/news/seasonal-lineup/2024/6/18/summer-2024-anime-crunchyroll

    Honestly not seeing much to be hype for. Will likely continue Reincarnated as a Slime, MHA & Dededede. Planning to watch 2nd seasons of Tower of God, The Cafe Terrace & it’s Goddesses, Oshi no Ko (though that’s Hidive). I’ll inevitably find some new seasonals, but planning to try to take care of some backlog series like the 2nd cour of the Ruroni Kenshin remake ahead of season 2 this fall, Catlevania: Nocturne & Scott Pilgrim. And still haven’t watched live action One Piece & Avatar:TLA

  2. I recently saw Castle in the Sky at the movies as part of Fathom Events’ Ghibli Fest. Like wise planning to go see When Marnie Was There for the first time in a couple weeks.

    Also watched My Oni Girl on Netflix, but it really didn’t hold my interest.

  3. ALL of the “Big 3” are overrated IMO. One Piece is actually the one with the greatest appeal for me as I watched up to around ep 150 before burning out & it is the only one I even remotely consider revisiting some day.

    The anime I’ve stayed with the longest is probably MHA (just watched ep 141) & frankly seasons 4&5 were disappointing & what got me interested again in season 6 was that it at least seemed to put the “End” in sight. It’s an rare series that can keep my interest for 100 episodes & most need far less. A satisfying conclusion can lead to an enduring legacy, conversely dragging things out to cash in on a pre-established fandom inevitably leads to embarrassment. And not just for anime  (Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, The Simpsons, etc.)

  4. Midseason Update

    Watching: Mushoku Tensei S2Pt2 • Kaiju No. 8 • Yuru Camp S3 • Train to the End of the World • Duke of Death & His Maid S3 • Windbreaker • My Hero Academia S7 • Demon Slayer: Hashira Training Arc • Konosuba S3 • Reincarnated as a Slime S3 • Mysterious Disappearances • Studio Apartment, Angel Included • Astro Note • Reincarnated as the 7th Prince • Jellyfish Can’t Swim in the Night

    Oh Hold / Undecided: Go, Go Loser Ranger • Voice Actor Radio • Arch Demon’s Elf Bride • Tonari no Yokai-san • Sand Land • Ninja Kamui • T.P. Bon • The Grimm Variations • Tsukimichi S2

    Might Check Out Later: Spice & Wolf remake • Unnamed Memory • Whisper Me a Love Song • Blue Archive • The New Gate

    Dropped: ReMonster • Level 2 Cheat Skills • A Salad Bowl of Eccentrics • Vampire Dormitory • Mission Yozakura Family • Delicious in Dungeon

  5. Watched the first 4 episodes of Astro Note & found it surprisingly enjoyable. The oddball cast of characters remind me of Rumiko Takahashi’s old-school romcoms. I find it particularly funny that the alien poodle has the same voice as Sukuna (JJK)

  7. Binge watched the first 4 eps of Kaiju No. 8 & wish I’d started it sooner. New anime-of-the-season contender. Not a good idea to eat while watching though. A combination of Chainsaw Man & early seasons of My Hero Academia seems like a good description. Appreciate that the MC is in his 30s (30 was actually a greater hit to my ego than 40, so relatable 😂 )

    I didn't know there was a movie I will search it and watch this too. Do you know if that is available on crunchyroll?

    Yes (in the US anyway). it’s listed as Legend of Crimson & takes place after season 2, before season 3.

    I watched Konosuba - God's blessing on this wonderful world! the first season this weekend and enjoyed that. I have seen there are some other seasons I will watch of it this week too.

    There’s also a movie that takes place in-between seasons 2 & 3.

    And a prequel anime focusing on Megumin & Yunyun, but the general consensus is that it’s not as enjoyable.

  10. Personal faves:

    Azumanga Daioh (comedy)

    School Rumble (comedy)

    Yuru Camp (CGDCT)

    Aria (unusual setting) 3 seasons & multiple OVAs/specials

    The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today

  11. Saw Spy x Family: Code White at the movies Thursday. Visually nice, but disappointing in every other aspect. Sadly, the franchise has lost just about all appeal for me.

    Watched Malignant on Netflix today & plan to watch Joker tomorrow since both are leaving the service next week.
