I was watching recently Jujutsu Kaisen and rewatching JJBA, but now I'm only waiting for stone ocean. Started some other animes, but stopped meantime because lack of time.

Dipping my toes into short-episode series with Space Patrol Luluco. The urge to binge it all in one afternoon is strong, but I think I'm going to spread it out over a week or so so it doesn't get repetitive

Newish to watching anime, I've got a sibling that introduced me to it. As of now I'm watching Tokyo Revengers, episode 3. Didn't know what to expect but I'm glued to the story now. So far so good.

Finished Great Pretender. It was ok, but not really my thing.

Will probably watch some of the Shaman King remake when it goes up on Netflix tomorrow.

Watched the first 3 episodes of Shaman King. Pretty standard shonen, but I’m still enjoying it well enough. Anna’s going to be one helluva queen.

edit: I thought Lee’s last name “Pyron” sounded odd except as a possible reference to Darkstalkers. Just saw that it’s a mistranslation of “Pai Long” Does it count as Engrish when it’s actually a Chinese name? 😆

Watched the first 2 episodes of Fena: Pirate Princess. Very nice visuals & character designs. But the writing feels a bit lacking to me. Although not overly similar, can’t help but be reminded of Nadia: Secret of Blue Water. Will continue to watch for awhile anyway.

I finished Vampire Princess Miyu about a day ago. Didn't bother to share my thoughts on it because it's one of those anime that's just "okay" enough that I have no thoughts. I gave it 7/10. It's incredibly bleak at times, but also kinda boring at other times. A more mediocre version of Hell Girl that's unfortunately dated. I like its style though, particularly the title card and the "ending card" that made it seem like it's some traditional folk tale from feudal Japan, which is befitting for an anime titled "Vampire Princess Miyu". Though honestly speaking, Miyu didn't really feel like royalty and more like "The Chosen One" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. lol

I've gotten sucked into watching quite a bit of anime recently after having been largely absent from it for over a decade, and have seen quite a bit that has been good. Here's a short sample of what I've watched recently:

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (one of the best written series ever, absolutely loved it)

Your Lie in April (probably one of the best series ever made, shed plenty of tears)

Erased (enjoyed this immensely)

Death Note (good, but gets a bit old once the schtick wears off)

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (by far the funniest anime I've ever seen)

Toradora (cute romance story)

A Silent Voice (great film, the story sticks with you for a while after watching it)

Kuroko's Basketball (still watching it, not bad but so far not great either)

My Little Monster (another cute romance story, probably the best first episode of any series ever)

Got a lot more to watch, seems like there's been a ton of good anime that has come out within the last 10 years.

Uhh- Yuri on Ice

I have that one on my PTW list.

I still have a week in my Prime trial membership so checking out 7 Senses of Reunion.  Asahi is freaking adorable, though  Satsuke has me rooting for the “childhood friend” character.

Re-watching Bleach since the final manga arc is getting animated. 

Has it really been this long? It's certainly aged a bit. Looking back, I wish they did more with Yasutora Sado and Renji. Lots of missed opportunities!

Just finished the 1st ep of 86’s new cour/season. While her peers may consider her naive/foolish for getting demoted for her ideals, Lena seems a lot edgier & less concerned about being nice or doing things by the book now. Also seems to have won over her new troops fairly easily, but maybe not surprising considering she manages to get results without treating them as cannonfodder. I was surprised

that Shin & the others from the squad are still alive. But at this point I almost expect the Federacy to be some sort of Matrix like simulation by The Legion to trick them. Even if they’re sincere, it’s clear Shin & the others find the way they are treated to be condescending. Pity & sympathy are a poor substitute for respect & dignity. While Frederica is undeniably a spoiled brat, her behavior is in many ways more honest than the adults attempts at compassion & altruism. No surprise that she is/was the Empress & raises questions about how much their government has actually changed


In closing, I’m considerably more hyped for what’s to come than I was going into the episode.
