1- I'm glad Ghibli finally got on board with streaming. 

2- Still not paying for HBO. When they allow for digital copy streaming such as Vudu, let me know. 😂

Edit- I guess the website picked up on my cookies from my laptop, I just saw an ad here for Sausage Party on Vudu that my husband already bought. I just emailed support today asking to remove that from my account because I'm tired of my 4 year old niece asking if she can watch the hotdog movie.

@Wedgy agreed with you regarding Ghibli getting onto a streaming service at last. I just really hope that is allows for them to make or display more unique content.

I actually strongly agree with their stance... Though it sadens me at times that I cant find their movies online. I really love getting to watch ghibli films... So I guess I will have to collect them all

I actually prefer to buy the stuff I know I like.  Stuff tends to become unavailable on streaming sites.

That said, I like the streaming sites too.  Their role (for me anyway) is to help me find stuff I like.  I'd never have found half the stuff I like (and then bought) if I hadn't first seen it on a stream somewhere.  Who is going to pay to buy the disc(s) for everything that is released, when only a small percentage has any re-watch value anyway?

It takes all kinds.

Finally got around to starting Higurashi (When They Cry) last night since there aren’t any new series I watch on Tuesdays. Determined to make it through all of it (had previously only seen the first series). No way I’ll finish by Halloween though.

Ahh Higurashi is amazing! The type of show I re-watch in its entirety periodically. 

Assuming you haven't seen kai? 

(side note: I can't find kai anywhere online anymore, someone please help me?)

HiDive has the original series, Kai & Rei. I’m currently subscribed to VRV which combines Crunchyroll & HiDives libraries (also some other animation & nerd channels). Not sure if that’s an option outside the US or not. Been meaning to watch the whole thing around Halloween time for years, but always got sidetracked. But I’ll at least finish it this year. Just finished episode 15 of the original series.

Ohh I'm jealous this looks awesome! Maybe something I'll give myself when I'm not hoarding my money for an anime convention...

Glad you're enjoying the series :)

“Cute” isn’t usually a word used to describe a 7 foot tall demon, but Ameri is an exception 😊

A couple US streaming updates:

The 2nd Reincarnated as a Slime OVA will be available on Crunchyroll & Funimation on 12/4. The promotional image & that it’s supposed to be a sumo tournament suggests it will be light on story and focus on fanservice & comedy

Also, the 2nd season of Takagi-san will be available on Netflix beginning 12/6.

I’ll reserve judgement till I’ve seen it, as the last OVA was essentially a beach episode and I found it enjoyable enough.  But if you hate filler or are offended by fanservice, you probably won’t miss anything by skipping it.

Not sure if any other members are watching it, but the first season of Ascendence of a Bookworm will have a 2 part finale on Christmas Day. And a second season is apparently planned for the Spring 2020 season https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-12-05/ascendance-of-a-bookworm-anime-2nd-part-premieres-next-spring/.154041

It is on my list, but it is on hold until the season ends & I can binge the whole thing.  I've only watched about 3 episodes.. just enough to put it on my list.

I wasn’t real impressed at first, but it’s grown on me quite a bit. It’s pretty slow moving & subdued, but getting into some more drama now.
