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. 

Ah yes, I had heard he directed Paprika before. Another show to add to the ever growing and probably uncompletable list

Finished Spriggan 2022 & enjoyed it quite a bit. Hope it gets a season 2 since it ended on a bit of a cliffhanger.

Fate Grand Carnival specials. Was a bit apprehensive I wouldn’t get all the jokes since I’ve never actually played FGO. But having watched Absolute Demonic Front Babylon & my penchant for myths and legends helped me pick up on most references. Also recognized Caster from Fate Zero & his obsession with Jeanne D’arc. Funniest moments were Ereshkigal‘s vtuber battle & Orion repeatedly getting skewered by Artemis. Could’ve done without

Lancelot cosplaying as Fou though 

😅 

First 2 eps of My Isekai Life. Doubt I’ll continue this one as it was just too generic & felt like everything moved in slow motion.

I started watching Ranking of Kings, and I was really loving it, such an interesting story... but then it started to get violent/bloody, which I don't like. I kept just trying to look away, thinking it wouldn't stay that way, but after a few eps it seems like it. I'm sad to drop it but....

Spoiler

To keep watching a demonic figure slash peoples wrists and legs just isn't for me. - even if it wasn't demonic, but that doesn't help.

I have mixed feelings about that one. I liked how it tried to replicate the tone of a lot of the old legends & folk/fairy tales (which are frequently pretty dark & violent in their original versions). But I felt it tried too hard to be morally ambiguous at times & had a number of issues with it’s “conclusion”. I can appreciate & respect what they set out to do, but not so happy about how it ended.

Thanks, this makes me feel better about dropping it!

Finished the 1st season of Classroom of the Elite and thought it was decent. Watched the 1st ep of the 2nd season & thought this next test was kinda hard to follow. Also, not a fan of the new artstyle, definitely preferred the old one. Will stick with it awhile at least though.

Gonna start watching Stardust Memory tonight at some point, and I've also been scoping out Luna Legend Tsukihime. I know that it based of the Visual Novel Tsukihime. But that all I know, however it is type moon so might be worth a watch.

I watched that one a long time ago but don’t remember any specifics (other than most comments I saw from people familiar with the VN thought it was lacking).

I think now a days there's a meme or saying which goes 'there is no Tsukihime anime'. 

So I can imagine from that it not very popular. However I like to judge shows for myself, I mean Wolf's Rain, Blue Gender and even Fate Stay Night (the Studio Deen one) all have there detractors but I liked those shows.

Watching Mamoru Hosoda's Belle in theaters with my brother was thing that I enjoyed. Learned about it while watching the millennium parade's MV when it dropped. Don't really know what to watch for summer.

Angsty & naive male MC in his early teens crosses paths with a freespirited & potentially dangerous “older” woman. Nazuna isn’t as manic as Haruko, but still pretty brazen. Appearance wise she reminds me of MHA’s Himiko Toga. I enjoyed the first ep quite a bit.

yeh i did see the resemblance in the story line but
watching it i feel what made me think more of fclc was the art work similarity and the i feel they delivered the scenes in the same silly popping format way too
its hard to find the right words and express right what im trying to say
