    <googles it> Ah, Big Wind Up. Heard of it but haven’t seen any of it. Until recently the only sports series I’d seen were Taisho Baseball Girls snd Battle Athletes (which hardly counts :P). But in the past 2 years I’ve watched and enjoyed to varying degrees: Megalobox, Hanebado, Hinomaru Sumo, Money Pitch, Harukana Receive and currently Mix & Cinderella Nine.

    Sorry, instinctive disclaimer from making recommendations on other sites to less experienced anime aficionados. Going off on something of a tangent, there’s a currently airing sports drama called Mix: Meisei Story that definitely has an oldschool feel to it, both in it’s visual and storytelling style. Wasn’t sure about staying with it, but the nostalgic feels seem to be winning me over. It’s supposed to be something of a sequel to a series called Touch I wasn’t familiar with. Of course baseball in general gives me a sense of nostalgia. Funny thing is until recently sports anime was one of my least favorite genres.

    They also added Legend of Black Heaven which I kind of enjoyed up till the conclusion anyway. Basically the MC was a somewhat successful rockstar in his youth, but is now a middle-aged salaryman in a thankless job and has a wife and young kid who don’t really seem to respect him anymore. One day he’s approached by an attractive and younger co-worker who claims to be an alien and that his music is the key to saving their civilization. Obviously a lot of humor and satire, but some feels as well. The biggest shortcoming I recall is that the art style was pretty dated.

    Crunchyroll had been adding a lot of older titles to their catalog the past couple weeks. One of their recent acquisitions was Kimagure Orange Road. I remember it being one of the “classic” titles people were talking about when I first got into anime on vhs. Also, Cosmo Warrior Zero appears to be another entry in the Leiji-verse. Added both to my bucketlist. I also remember watching Elemental Gelade (it was ok, but not anything special) https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/05/16-1/kimagure-orange-road-and-more-join-crunchyrolls-anime-catalog https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/05/15/crunchyroll-adds-eat-man-98-and-more-to-anime-catalog
  6. I’m currently watching it and don’t consider it the best show of the Spring season, but it’s not the worst either. The quality of the animation and CG is definitely the biggest shortcoming. I don’t mind that Saitama isn’t the main focus a lot of the time as the while one-and-done thing is actually pretty boring (and yes I’ve read the articles/essays about how it’s a metaphor) and didn’t think season 1 was the greatest thing ever, so not a typical fan. I actually like there appears to be more of an actual story this time, though it jumps around between different situations and characters too much.
  7. I’ll probably watch Thursday evening, but I’ll be ready to discuss Friday
  8. I think a big part of Spear’s problem is he sees himself as the gallant hero rescuing damsels in distress and making them swoon. I think Myne picked up that he was particularly gullible in this respect and used it not only in her own false accusations but also in convincing him that Raphtalia, Filo & Melty were being forced/controlled by Naofumi. Granted pretty much all guys (including Naofumi) are subject to that, but Spear seems to have a particular weakness for it as well as flattery.
  9. Not like the storyline was the actual selling point for that franchise anyway.
  10. Episode 19: while setting the stage for what has the makings to be an epic clash, the primary focus seemed to be on ironing out some of the rough spots with the story over the past couple weeks and it manages to do a decent job of it IMO.
  11. Next Thursday or Friday evening sounds good to me (Thursday is the one day of the week I don’t have a currently airing series, but I’ll have houseguests tomorrow through the weekend)
