What anime are you watching now?

I’m currently watching Kemurikusa (although I’m not 100% sure it’s an anime, can someone PLEASE tell me if it is?) and I’m rewatching Naruto Shippuden

@OtakuKid Since you seem to really want to know, here is my guess. I don't know the show but I would say it is an anime.

Here are the reasons why I think that.
Right off the bat, it has a Japanese sounding name. It was produced by a Japanese anime studio which primarily produced other anime as well. The art style to me seems to be much more anime than cartoon, but it has some cg effects added to it. It is on sites like My Anime List.

All these things taken together would be enough for me to say it is anime, but there probably is someone who might disagree 😂

@OtakuKid I really liked Kemurikusa’s character designs & artstyle spacer.png

The story was kinda hard to follow at times, but still enjoyable. There were also a number of shorts about the other sister’s who weren’t as central to the main story. Unfortunately they weren’t available on Amazon Prime. I don’t like to frequent pirate sites, but found some of them on Youtube, but not subtitled in English 😥 Wish they would do a blu ray release complete with the shorts.

As far as whether it should be considered anime I’d say definitely. On another forum I used to frequent the point was made that the Japanese don’t have a separate word for animation or cartoons from different countries, they refer to it all as anime. Of course when non-Japanese people use the term, it implies that it was originally created for a japanese audience or at least copies the japanese style of animation. Just like the word otaku can mean an obsessive fan of anything in Japan, but when used by a foreigner usually means a fan of Japanese pop culture (anime, manga, video games, idol groups, etc.)

I've just finished Samurai Champloo (loved it!) and started rewatching Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, wondering how my mental health didn't get damaged when I watched it the first time in my early teens 😅😅😅 I remember liking the second season though cause it explained all the madness 😂

I’m watching Nobunaga-sensei no Osanazuma

        Which is a series about time travel, and like 5 girls all trying to be this dudes wife. it’s a bit PG-13. Also, I’m trying to get myself back into Bleach again, I kinda left after episode 50, it felt daunting and slow.

Re:Zero The Frozen Bond offers some insight into Emilia’s past & her relationship to Puck. So much I still don’t really understand, but looking forward to season 2 even more now.

My plans are to start my rewatch and catch-up for Attack on Titan, rewatch Shinsekai Yori and start Get Backers. Also rewatching Steins;Gate 0 for the first time since I got the bluerays :P

I’ve actually started watching Inuyasha. I’d  planned on starting with Tanya or Fate, but it’s been on my anime bucket list for awhile & saw an article about an upcoming spinoff/sequel. Put Sing Yesterday for me on hold, because I’m finding it kinda boring.
