What anime are you watching now?

I'm back on track on my first watch of Yu Yu Hakusho. I'd got distracted due to re-watch of Fate/Apocrypha, Parasyte and then got lost in a sea of anime others were showing me.

But tonight I had some time to work out were I was and progress through the show some more. 

So I was able to finish the Saint Beast sub arc and move onto the introduction of the Toguro brothers and make it to the dark tournament. 

I've heard nothing but good stuff of the dark tournament arc, the previous Toguro episodes of the ghost detective arc were really, really good. So if it keeps up this is looking like a great series.

Right now I'm rewatching Ergo Proxy because it's been so long since I've seen it, I've actually forgot what it's about. Now I remember why I buy DVD/blu-ray sets after watching new anime. lol

Ergo Proxy, been about a year and a bit since I first sat through it. It one of those atmospheric-philosophical anime shows.

Yeah, definitely interesting to watch everything unfold the way it has so far.

Finished Overlord IV. The overall progression of the larger story was good, but the arc concerning the conflict between the Dwarves, Quagoa  & Dragons didn’t seem to fit with anything else that happened.

First ep of Urusei Yatsura (2022). Don’t remember enough about the original to make a comparison but it felt pretty meh. Doubt I’ll stick with it long.

First 2 eps of Akiba Maid War. Very entertaining in a tongue-in-cheek way along with a Tarantino  level of violence. One of my favorite new (not sequel or continuation) series of the season along with Eminence in Shadow.

Going to try yo finish Cyberpunk: Edgerunners over the weekend.

To be honest, the full length animated films were actually more enjoyable than the original series was; the only problem was that you had to see the pilot episode of the series where the characters are introduced in order to fully understand why everything is the way that it is in the films. After watching "Beautiful Dreamer", I expected that the series would be something more akin to "Ah! My Goddess!" - it was nothing like that; however, the author of the manga did actually base much of the stories and the characters themselves off of Japanese Folklore and Mythology, which I thought was really neat. Apparently the Oni were like the Japanese equivalents of the Giants and Ogres in many Western Traditions, although it is often translated to mean something like a bad spirit or an Imp. I'm actually disappointed that they decided to reboot the series unless they intended to use the same retro animation style from back in the VHS Era. I'm really not big into remakes as a rule. Why can't they just leave the classics alone? I know why...money.

The only one of my friends who likes anime came round yesterday and we spent the day watching anime movies.

Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll.

Josee, The Tiger and The Fish.

When Marnie was there.

Three excellent movies, my friend hadn't seen any of them and thoroughly enjoyed all three.

Not expecting much in the way of instruction, substance or originality, but seems like a perfectly charming & chill CGDCT. And a source of positive vibes  in the style of Laidback (Yuru) Camp & Diary of our Days at the Breakwater is a good thing to have.

Honestly though not bad even if it ran though the plot of UBW at Mach speed.

Plus it's Rin route and Rin is best girl.

So close, but we all know Saber is best girl. For she is the King of Knights and the defender of Britian. 

See the source image

And is also precious.

I watched the first 2 eps yesterday, but didn’t really interest me.  Haven’t checked out Love Flops or More than a Married Couple, but not Lovers yet.
 

checked out your MAL but you’ve already seen most series I’d recommend. Sorry.

@MediaConsumesMe

Rinis best girl my reason are pretty obvious.

 See the source image

but I can prove it with science!

See the source image

Now on to more important matters 

The other anime I watched recently include the following...

Area 88

See the source image

Really enjoyed this anime defiantly recommend

Outlander 

See the source image

Didn't really care for this one it was very short and felt like it was doing too much. But for a wacky space adventure it was decent time waster.

Tokyo Revelation

See the source image

It was okay but that ending kind of sucked in my opinion maybe better in the original Japanese's IDK 

Five Star Stories 

See the source image

which I finally got to watch just today after starting that whole anime hidden gems discission which I began with this humble little anime that most people had probably never heard off.
