I’d watched the original adaption back in the day but it didn’t make much of an impression on me. The remake (2019 - 2022) however is one of my all time top 10 anime. In  40+ years of watching anime, I’ve never watched another series which could affect me emotionally as much as it did on a week to week basis during it’s run. Hoping the prequel/recap/sequel film gets released over here in some format (came out in Japan earlier this year).

I'm currently watching K-ON!  Which is great fun.  I think if I'd had a teacher like that and an after school club where I could drink tea and eat cake I just might have enjoyed school a bit more.

Checked out some premieres:

Rising of the Shield Hero season 2 - didn’t waste any time at all on a recap, jumping straight to a new threat separate of the “Waves” which were the focus of last season. Curious to see where it goes from here.

Birdie Wing - first of all, if you’re looking for a realistic depiction of the sport & it’s technical nuances, keep looking 😂 As at least 2 of the characters have techniques that seem more like something from Demon Slayer. Also a bit of a Megalo Box or Sk8 the ♾️ vibe to it. And I admit the attractive character designs without an egregious level of fanservice are a plus for me. Not sure if I”ll stick with it for the whole season, but seems like a fun/enjoyable way to spend a half hour each week.

RPG Real Estate - not a fan of the moe-blob character designs & didn’t find it cute or funny. Might’ve worked better as a short run time series. One & done.

started watching aharen-san wa hakarenai and this is totally my type of show. I like it

Ok, I admit the 2nd ep made me laugh. A LOT. Especially Aharen’s attempts to protect Raidou’s dignity/virtue 🤣

 

dude was so traumatized when he realized his fly was down all day, he had to take a sick day

 And I can relate to Aharen’s reflex to eyedrops. I’m very adverse to anything getting in my eye. My optometrist has to pry my eyes open to put drops in & it’s absolute hell when a lash gets stuck.

've just finished watching K-ON! On the face of it a slice of life show about five girls who are members of a high school music club doesn't seem that interesting, but the way the various character's differing personalities interact with each other make the whole more than the sum of its parts. Add in the excellent animation and HTT's music, even if the lyrics are plain weird*, and you've got a series that's great fun to watch.

The movie was good fun too, and as someone who spent most of their working life in London I recognised many of the places the girls visited. Their trip from the Ibis London City to the Ibis Earls Court was interesting, Aldgate East station is the nearest one to the Ibis London City, but as they ended up in Camden Town they seriously got the wrong train and went in the wrong direction, but if Yui was navigating that probably explains it. 🙂

 

* Having said their lyrics were weird, I would like to point out that U&I and the groups final song for Azusa had great lyrics.

Shachiku-san wa Youjo Yuurei ni Iyasaretai, looks like another fun + cute one.  Might even be a bit too cute but I only have one ep to go by.  At any rate I'm putting it on my worth-another-look list.  I'll come back in another couple weeks and see if it gets promoted to my ptw list.

I understand. I watched ep 11 and thought of never finishing it but after pushing myself to finish the whole anime I thought that it was actually just a wholesome show and now I really want to see Gojo and Marin getting together since they are perfect for each other. Also the Ed/op and the animation is super good.

Honestly the scene that made me consider dropping the series didn’t even involve Marin. It was the way they introduced Juju. But like @Soramee_, I’m glad I stayed with it. The final episode really was the best for me & the note it ended on was really sweet.

The third episode of Mashiro no Oto was so good! I like the characters they've introduced, the themes thus far are warm and inviting.

Finished Kotaro Lives Alone. It was clear very early on that this wasn’t just going to be a light hearted slice of life series. It touches on some heavy topics of neglect, abuse & abandonment. Though the perspective felt a bit odd at times (cultural differences?) & it felt like it took on too much to really address satisfactorily. Still deserves credit for it’s ambitions & being thought provoking.

I’m debating whether to finish Slow Loop (watched through episode 8 ) or close the book on the Winter roster & focus on Spring.
