  1. 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.) 


  2. 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

  3. 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)



    And then there’s the dad who always wears a suit despite being unemployed & the violent idol singer wannabe spacer.png

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

    I was looking forward to Konosuba season 3, but it seems that Crunchyroll isn't releasing a dubbed version?

    Their line-up page says there will be a dub, but no mention of when https://www.crunchyroll.com/news/seasonal-lineup/2024/3/13/crunchyroll-spring-2024-dubs-konosuba-black-butler-kaiju-no-8
