Still slowly getting through the Manga Force Collection:
Casshan: Robot Hunter OVA eps 1-4
A tale about best intentions gone wrong and the man who is going to clean up the mess. Turns out he's an android version of the son of the scientist who built the AI who is trying to rid the planet of...
Elements are there with harmonising with the tech to get it to work, but technically would be "boy (dragon) is [insert military hardware here]" 😀
I was thinking of KanColle and Girls und Panzer. I'm sure there are more.
Karakuri Circus ep 14
The attack concludes with a twist. Narumi is more machine now than man, twisted and... well not evil he just forgot about Shirogane and attacked her because he was told that she is really the Doll Francine, or at least has absorbed her in some way!?
The Promised Neverland...
Battle Angel Alita upto chapter 25
Finished one arc with Alita supposedly realising something about herself, but then the next arc time skips to 2 years later and she is seemingly doing something different again! But trouble is never too far away, even if it logically should have found her sooner.
Tsurune ep 12
Tournament time and the guys have a hard time focusing.
Mob Psycho 100 s2 e2
Funny and creepy at the same time.
Rinshi!! Ekoda-san ep 2
Different in both style and pacing compared to the first one. With only one, more introspective, scene taking up the 3 minutes. Watching a bit...
Both had the same writer, which wasn't Okada. Although AnoNatsu had the same director as AnoHana, which is why I watched it and it was only OK.
Found this recommendation piece on MAL from a familiar name:
I wouldn't say spectacular, but the story is interesting as is the setting (time and place) and the comedy is funny. I voted both female and male leads as my Best New Girl/Boy.
The art and animation aren't anything to right home about, but the character designs are all quite unique. Especially...
Karakuri Circus ep 13
A pretty damn good episode. With some good action and a very moving death scene.
Dororo ep 2
Pretty interesting tale. I wonder how much is folklore and how much is the Tezuka-san's imagination. Props to Dororo's VA as well, she's only 13 and only her second gig!
Kemono Friends eps 7-12 (complete)
A fun infotainment show where we meet lots of different animal girls, but also there was an intriguing plot sprinkled in with the 11th episode actually ending with quite a dramatic impact.
The character designs are all pretty good and the soundtrack has some...
I've been watching stuff here and there rather than having time for a proper session over the last few days. So I've concentrated mainly on first episodes of new shows.
Magical Girl Spec Ops Asuka ep 1
Some pretty kick-ass action with some kick-ass tunes.
Endro~! ep 1
Speaking of magical...
