  1. Welcome Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around.
  2. Watched the new 3 ep Reincarnated as a Slime OVA (Vision of Coleus) last night. Honestly it was pretty meh, the plot being too similar to the movie but without the improved visuals or the personal connections to the existing cast to make things more interesting. Seems like it’s main goal was to show a bit more of the “Primordials” characters ahead of season 3, but I personally feel like I could’ve skipped it without really losing anything & the series’ usual humor was missing or flat.
  3. Yup, one & done. I gave The Apothecary Diaries a chance because of positive comments on MAL, but dropped after 3 eps. Felt like a bit like Raven of the Inner Palace or Heike Story but without any of the aspects that made them enjoyable or interesting. Can add Migi & Dali to my list of new favorites for this season. A murder mystery / revenge quest with a WTF sense of humor. Weirdness factor is accentuated by the twin orphan protagonists physically resembling young Johan Liebert.
  4. Updated my MAL profile to participate In an ongoing badge event / contest https://myanimelist.net/profile/Ohayotaku
  5. @Bulleje76 still sampling shows, but right now recommendations for you would be Ragna Crimson & Berserk of Gluttony. Possibly Shangri-La Frontier & The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy. Also Eminence of Shadow & Dead Mount Death Play have 2nd seasons but I’m planning to wait for them to finish & binge them so the story is easier to keep up with.
  6. I set it aside after 2 eps, doubt I’ll come back to it. I’d recommend Precure Full Bloom instead as you enjoyed Cardcaptor Sakura & Sailor Moon (I haven’t seen the original series it’s a sequel to, but it hasn’t prevented me from enjoying it. The one scene in episode 3 caught me by surprise though ) Also, @Animedragon & @efaardvark, I’d recommend Stardust Telepath (CGDCT dealing with overcoming social anxiety & designing a rocket) Not sure how far they’ll actually get, but in 3 eps they progressed from water pressure powered bottle rockets to recruiting a classmate who’s actually got a serious interest in mechanical engineering.
  7. Added to Halloween playlist
  8. “I guess what you want to do, what you have to do & what you can do are all different. What a pain in the ass” - - Goblin Slayer season 2
  9. Huh? I watched 1 ep & that’s it. Didn’t catch my interest.
  10. Watched the first 2 eps of Undead Unluck last night. Reminds me of My Hero Academia with the art style / character designs & also because the various super powers operate under specific rules that need to be understood in order to use or counter effectively. It’s ecchier than MHA though (more on par with Fire Force). Seems like a fun ride, so will probably stick with it.
  11. Until recently I was wrapping up series from the summer season (still going to try to watch My Happy Marriage by year’s end). But now shifting my focus to Fall 2023 shows. So far Frieren: Beyond Joyrneys End & Shangri La Frontier are the new ones I’m enjoying most. Continuing to watch the Shibuya Arc of Jujutsu Kaisen & really enjoyed the 1st ep of Spy x Family’s 2nd season but the 2nd ep not as much.
  12. I actually prefer Paranorman to Coraline
  13. Welcome Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around. Pretty sure they’re talking about Re:Zero ironically I’m the older one on here
  14. That was actually just one of the subplots (the characters mentioned aren’t even the MCs). And the series ended with a lot of things unresolved unless they make another season.
  15. I need to check that out since a season 2 seems less & less likely. I just started reading the Mieruko-chan manga from where the anime left off.
  16. Apparently this will be the next anime project for the franchise, though I lost all interest long ago https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2023-10-12/toei-animation-announces-new-dragon-ball-daima-anime/.203355
  17. As I recall, “work” is that mysterious activity which ye mortals grudgingly engage in at the expense of the precious little time your life spans grant ye - Phoenix (The Family Circumstances of the Irregular Witch)
  18. Welcome Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around
  19. Do Pokemon count? Or aliens? Maybe a bear (I do think hibernating through the winter months sounds like a good idea)
  20. Because I enjoy variety. While I certainly have my preferences, just watching certain genres is too restrictive for me. And I actually find it very fulfilling when a series I had little expectations for manages to surprise me. As to why for this series in particular, while certainly not an “A” list title, I do have an interest in myth/legend/folklore/fairytale themes. Considering it’s getting a 3rd season, apparently I’m not alone in finding it at least somewhat enjoyable (though I do hope they decide to wrap things up this time around, as I could see losing interest if things drag out too long). I generally prefer romcoms over romantic drama’s, but the Fruits Basket remake proved that there are exceptions.
  21. I believe Santa Faye isn’t just the capital of New Mexico

  23. “Can I hold the baby?” “Sure “
  24. Close to 90F for highs thru midweek. Then the weekend we’ll be lucky to make it to 60 with overnight temps in the low 40s
