    AI: How do you feel?

    Yeah, I’ve had those in my feed as well. Maybe I’m just trying to convince myself, but I think this feels more like a sideways development based on existing technology than any real advancement in what AI claims to do. Much of the ‘movement’ appears to be simple parallax scrolling of elements...

    Delicious in Dungeon ep18-19 Konosuba 3: Tokyo Drift ep4-5 Kaiju No.8 ep4-5 I’ve seen a few comments from established fans of the manga expressing dissatisfaction with how the anime looks, but based on the few pages I’ve seen, I actually prefer the anime tbh. Go Go Loser Ranger! ep1-2 Fun...

    Would definitely agree that it had a promising start, but I didn’t make it to the end of that one - so much of it seemed to involve the characters sitting in a largely featureless room and expositing at each other. I was genuinely surprised it was the same author as Baccano et al. There’s...

    Kono3ba ep2 Enjoyed that a lot more than the previous episode, it feels the group dynamic is back to where I preferred it. Delicious in Dungeon ep15-16 Starting to feel like my thoughts on this are hard to express as anything short of interpretive dance, but in moving the plot forward, 16...

    It’s Always Sunny in Konosuba 3 ep1 Hmm. I was a bit apprehensive about the prospect of Konosuba coming back. Season 2 feels like a lifetime ago and I was not that enamoured with the film, so the third round starting by rehashing one of the film‘s more cringeworthy gags didn’t do much to...

    Shangri-La Frontier ep1-4 If a friend of mine hadn’t talked it up to me, I’d probably never have bothered trying this MMO-themed fantasy adventure, but it seems pretty solid. There isn’t much at stake in the story so far beyond the main character looking for a challenge, but he seems like a...

    Photography Fun

    One of my friends has moved into a new place that looks out over the Clyde in the middle of Glasgow, the view is a bit special.

    Delicious in Dungeon ep14 This is starting to feel a lot more plot-driven now in ways that make watching one episode a week unsatisfying, so I think I’ll pause this one for a while and let a few episodes build up before coming back to it. I still don’t know how to feel about them having upped...

    Gacha Games Thread

    Yeah, that’s more or less what I’ve been finding. I got within one stage of completing the story for the previous event, which was a little annoying when I couldn’t get the conclusion, but I got the event character and three of her potential upgrades, so I can’t complain too much.

    Looking at the playthroughs people have posted for the new Design of Strife event in Arknights, I think this will be the first event I can’t make any impression on - even my best characters are nowhere near the level other people are using. I’m not unduly put out about this, the event seems...

    Gacha Games Thread

    After one of my friends persuaded me to give it a shot, I’ve spent the last four weeks or so playing Arknights. Having never really done gatcha games before, bar a little bit of time on Genshin, it’s certainly been an interesting experience. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the...

    Delicious in Dungeon ep13 Maybe I’m over analysing, but I wonder if this was the ‘if the manga isn’t a hit, we can end the story here’ part. Doesn’t matter. I don’t mind them doing something with a bit more substance, but I do think I preferred this when it was being more irreverent. Urusei...

    Delicious in Dungeon ep12 Frieren ep26-28 Pretty much just echoing the same sentiment as other folk - this is one of the most consistently good series I‘ve seen in a very long time, even if the last arc felt a little more ordinary than what came before it. If I was being particularly fussy...

    Must own 80s anime

    RadFemHedonist already touched on most of what I’d have mentioned, but as something of an Osamu Dezaki stan, I’d throw in Space Adventure Cobra, probably the movie more so than the series. Along with Golgo 13: The Professional, I think Cobra represents Dezaki at the peak of his powers as a...

    Delicious in Dungeon ep11 Well that took a turn, this has certainly been a lot darker in the last couple of episodes. It’s not zany in the way you might normally expect Trigger’s output to be, but I think visually this is becoming my favourite thing they’ve done to date, it feels like they’ve...

    Delicious in Dungeon ep9-10 It feels like this is finally starting to solidify into a more definite story, with ep9 in particular adding substantially more dramatic conflict than we’ve seen so far. I hope it’ll run for two cours continuously, if they stop at one I think it’ll have ended just...

    Bang Bravern ep7 Metallic Rouge ep7 Thinking I might shelve Metallic Rouge for now to be honest. When it’s not taking itself too seriously, it can be entertaining, but when it tries to lean into any darker elements, it just feels like a dreary Blade Runner fanfic with two of the least...
