A Couple of Cuckoos - yeah, this was an easy one-and-done for me 😅 Somehow managed to cram every harem trope imaginable into the first episode 😂

I rewatched "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" yesterday, it's an interesting story.

What would you do if you suddenly found you had the ability to jump back in time?
Well, High School student Makoto Konno has the perfect answer, she'll leap back to retake those tests and improve her grades and avoid a few personal mishaps, then she'll set about "helping" her friend's relationships. But she soon learns that meddling with the past the change the present isn't quite as easy as it seems and can lead to unintended and tragic consequences.

Started watching Tiger & Bunny to determine if season 2 was worth checking out. There are some similarities to One Punch Man & Super Crooks, but so far I’m liking this one better.

A new episode of Dragon Maid just went up on Crunchyroll.

Also a series called The Last Summoner https://myanimelist.net/anime/41915/Zuihou_de_Zhaohuan_Shi which I know nothing about (though the harem tag makes me apprehensive as it’s the genre that’s aged the worst for me)
 

Will check them out when I get home tonight.

I've just finished Madoka Magica and the movie.


The TV series is excellent.


The Rebellion move rather less so. I think they vastly overdid the surreal graphics (have they not heard the saying "less is more"?). I think it would have been a far better movie if they'd concentrated more on clearly telling the story rather than all the weird graphics. But I guess that's what happens when you let a production team go for maximum visual impact rather than story development. The term "style over substance" comes to mind.

I don't really see the point of the movie, unless it's extract a bit more cash from the franchise, because the TV series has quite a conclusive finale.

I think the film is a character story focused on Homura and her development exiting the true nature of her wish and why she made it. At least the second half. 

First half is more fan service. Through I do think being able to tell us about the characters personality without saying directly 'this is the angry one' was pretty smart. Using the animation and art to tell the story visually. 

The ending was originally planned to be more conclusive and less 'sequel baiting' however as it taken several years for them to tease a sequel I would really say the series has been milked overly that much.

Just finished Kanon, I always enjoy watching this series because it has a good story and an interesting cast of characters. It tells quite a serious story but it's not without some amusing incidents and there's some really good banter between some of the characters, both in the dialogue and visually.

I just finished watching all the available episodes of Kaguya-sama: Love is War. I've gotta say, that one's become a favorite of mine.

Probably going to start watching Tsugumomo while I await the next episode of Kaguya-sama.

That's a lot of episodes. Good luck! xD 

I'm rethinking my decision after episode 7 and checking to see how many I had left. Lol

Feel like the 2 leads might get kinda boring after awhile

Up to episode 5 and  I admit I was wrong 🤣 Raido’s weird imagination is the perfect complement for Aharen’s weird behavior. The fact that they’re both so stoic makes it even funnier.

Word of warning, that one gets pretty ecchi 😳

I get the same reaction everytime I consider getting back into One Piece 😂
