What anime are you watching now?

Yesterday I finished Stars-Align. It was really good with some really deep themes...

Spoiler

Then after a mainly good ending and the credits, it came back for real endings that made things really sad, and bad... wasn't prepared for that...

This morning I started Gurazeni: Money Pitch. (As I'm not a sports person but somehow love sports anime.) It's too early to comment on it yet though because I get distracted easily so I tend to only watch subbed shows while I'm eating, so I watch them slowly. Probably sometime today I'll start a new dub too, but dunno what yet.

I watched both seasons of it. It’s not your typical sports anime as it centers on adult players instead of highschool or collegiate. It’s also not very action oriented, focusing more on the mechanics & strategic elements of the game but also slice of life. The drama & interactions can be different too, with a focus on trying to build a career in baseball (making the most of the opportunities that come your way, trying to minimize injuries & keeping in mind that your career as an active player is likely short). There are instances of young talented characters who cut there careers short with stupid mistakes, but also veterans with a long career who never actually made much of an impact. There is humor in it too, though.  I can see a lot of people getting bored of it or being turned off by the artstyle, but as someone with an interest in baseball I found it enjoyable enough & definitely a departure from the norm.

I've only watched half of the first ep so far (Like I said, distracted easily.) But I can already tell its going to be different. We'll see how it goes, I really don't care much about baseball and you say its more focused on the mechanics of the game, but also humor and slice of life which are also things I love. So it could go either way. :).

Just finished Sailor Moon series 1.

For a series that's 30 years old this year the quality of the artwork and animation stands up well against more recent series, the only real giveaway to its age, apart from the date showing in the opening, is the backgrounds which in some places are a bit basic.  But it's still a good story with excellent characters.

Watched the first episode of Netflix’s Spriggan remake. Kinda like Indiana Jones meets Ghost In the Shell. Pretty cool.

Also the first ep of Phantom of the Idol. Made me chuckle a couple times, so will stick with it short term at least.

I'm watching Ranking of Kings. It's... very interesting. I don't know what I expected going into it, but when I started the first episode, I very quickly almost turned it off. but I'm glad I didn't. There are a few parts that have been a little more gory than expected, but I just look away. The rest of the show has been really interesting.

Just started Sailor Moon R.

The thing that puzzles me about the first arc is, if you're a couple of aliens who've arrived on Earth to steal people's energy, why would you enrol and attend the local school where your lack of knowledge of everyday things is going to make you stand out?

Yeah it defiantly one of those trippy, psychological shows. It was directed by Satoshi Kon and it defiantly has his style. I might be wrong, but I think it the only TV series he ever directed.

I have Perfect Blue on DVD to watch next too, but I can't say I'm familiar with Satoshi Kon's work outside these two projects.

I've looked up online he directed Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, Paprika and Good morning. Perfect Blue looks to be his first film he was director on, he also did direct three episodes of the original JoJo run. 

The more you know.

Spriggan (2022) episode 3 - best ep yet. The chemistry between Yuu, Yoshino & Akatsuki was great 👍 

 

Akatsuki: I’m only 32

Yoshino: Oh, that’s old, you know

Akatsuki: No, it’s not

Yoshino: Yes, it is

Akatsuki: No, it’s not

Yoshino: Yes, it is

Akatsuki: No, it’s not

Yoshino: Is too

Akatsuki: I’ll kick your ass

Yoshino: Eek!

Yuu: Oh, good grief.

The underlying concept is similar to Gunslinger Girl, but that one was pretty bleak. This one seems to be trying to project a more upbeat/cuter image, while still addressing the “questionable” ethics. Not sure how well that’s going to work out, but will keep watching for now. Also reminds me somewhat of Princess Principal.

The 1st ep of Yurei Deco. Well that was … trippy @_@ Seems like it will explore the potential impact of virtual/augmented reality on society. The more Love (likes) a person has, the more they can customize how the world appears to them & how they appear to others. Some similar concepts to Dennou Coil but with an Adventure Time artstyle. Hack reminds of Edward from Cowboy Bebop quite a bit.

Started watching Love After World Domination. I cracked up the entire time they transformed into the Gelato 5 and then did their individual attacks. I'll keep going with this show for now. The first ep was pretty amusing, and I like the concept of mortal enemies falling in love with each other and trying to actually date and spend time together while hiding it from everybody else.
