@Animedragon It reminded me of Haruhi Suzimiya what with the male lead’s personality & the paranormal incidents. And just so you know, there’s a movie that picks up where the series leaves off.

Finished Revenger (not to be confused with Tokyo Revengers ).  Dang, that final ep was brutal 😲 This had the potential to be something special if the supporting cast members had gotten more character development. But that would have required more eps which seems unlikely after the note it ended on. Not bad, but could’ve been a lot better with 2 cours to tell the story.

I just finished rewatching Steins;Gate with my friend who hadn’t seen it, and he loved it. I was a bit worried because the other anime we’ve seen together were much faster paced. He ended up appreciating the slow burn. I still need to watch S;G 0 so I guess that’s next for me.

I personally didn’t find SG0 as enjoyable, but good luck. I would recommend watching the movie (Load Region of Déjà Vu) though which is a sequel to the original series if you haven’t already seen it.

Planning to wrap up a number of seasonals this weekend (MHA6, Trigun Stampede, In/Spectre 2) & maybe start Kaina of the Great Snow Sea.

Today I finished watching Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. With a title like that I wasn't sure what I would be getting, and what I got was a highly watchable and enjoyable series. The individual story arcs were, well, a bit weird, and while there was a a touch of humour in them the incidents were all treated in a serious way, which was an approach I liked. Out of all the story arcs I thought Kaede's was the most hard hitting and Sakuta's reactions when he realised he'd 'lost' the sister he'd known for the past two years were really well handled and presented.

Finished My Hero Academia 6 which went a long way in restoring my faith in the franchise by touching on many of the themes I felt had so much potential from the beginning & even tied together a lot of things from the disappointing seasons 4 & 5. Plus it seems like an endgame is finally in sight.

Also In/Spectre season 2 which I honestly didn’t enjoy as much as season 1. It felt like they tried to cram a few too many twists into each mystery plus the resolutions always seemed to leave a sour taste. While I suppose that’s how the series differentiates itself, it’s still kind of a downer. My biggest disappointment though is the focus on the individual cases resulted in a lack of character development for the 3 mains (Kotoko, Kuro & Rika) and their relationship. Plus I missed Saki & the way she and Kotoko got on each others nerves.

Looks like the franchise is getting a 2nd movie, this one focusing on Kaede

That looks very promising, thanks for that information. Hopefully Crunchyroll will have both movies at some point in the not too distant future.

I started Nana the other day. I like the dynamic between both leads so far. They contrast each other nicely while still getting along with each other. The music is pretty good too.

I've finished watching A Bridge To The Starry Sky. I found it a somewhat curious little series, the story revolves around two brothers who leave Tokyo to live in a small village in the country because the younger brother has health problems. The older brother makes quite a lot of friends at his new school, most of which are cute girls. But it's not really a 'cute girls doing cute things' series nor is it a 'harem' series as only three of the girls show any interest in the older brother, and rather than throwing themselves at him they do the exact opposite.
The artwork and animation is good quality and with an interesting cast of main and supporting characters along with a good storyline I found that it made an enjoyable series to watch.

Interesting to know it comes from a visual novel, but it doesn't surprise me that it does. The creators have done a good job of merging the various routes without it being too obvious.

Finished Tomo-chan is a Girl. I enjoyed this series quite a bit this season. One of the better rom-coms I've seen lately. Also, I finished Nagatoro 2 over this past weekend, and I have to say, I enjoyed the show for the most part throughout, but I'm highly dissatisfied with how they ended that season. Just felt like Naoto and Nagatoro would have been further along in their relationship by then. I 'unno... 🤷‍♂️

All I've been watching lately has been Nagatoro 2 and Tomo-chan. I think I'm ready to shift gears away from simulcasts for a time and try to watch some older titles. My preference is that most or all of the episodes of a show are dropped and ready for viewing back to back. The plan is to dig in and watch Fate/Zero. I began watching that series near the end of last year, but I never made it past the second episode. My apologies, @MediaConsumesMe. I shall correct this error. 😅

This is the way I prefer to watch anime series as well, I don't have the patience to wait a week or so between episodes 🙂.

I just finished the 2 seasons of Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko (By the grace of the gods). It's only 24 eps, a feelgood series with bit of magic. It doesnt have much action and it is so sweet that i almost damaged my teeth. BUT i was in the mood for something like this. Just a happy feelgood simple series

You gotta get onto Fate. It so good - Zero is a great starting point followed by Unlimited Blade Works and then the Heaven Feel Trilogy. You can then if you dare circle back to Stay Night.

After that, it pretty much which ever of the spinoffs you want. I've seen them all up to Solomon (no release in UK still) and the upcoming Strange Fake.

I've started watching Tsuki ga Kirei it's quite a slow moving slice of life series about a couple of shy third year middle schoolers who are trying to get into a relationship without attracting the attention of their rather more boisterous and outgoing classmates, and when they do manage to get together without anyone else in the room they're so shy and nervous that they don't really know what to say to each other.

The artwork and animation are both good quality and the storyline, while slow moving, is well presented. The main and supporting characters are well crafted and have believable personalities.

The series has 25 episodes so I've a way to go in watching this one, but so far I'm enjoying it.

So, Crunchyroll is putting up the Kaguya-sama : Love is War movie this weekend, but they’ve divided it into 4 “episodes”. I just watched the first 2, the remainder is supposed to go up on Sunday. Please note that the story picks up immediately after the end of season 3.
