Holidays are great, but lord does it always leave me with loads to catch up with. Over the past three days I've watched...

FLCL - Episodes 1-6 (Complete)

This one has been a very long time coming. Years ago, a good 10+ years when I was still attending university, I watched episodes 1 through 3 of FLCL. And never watched more. Life got busy, I lost track of the series, and over time it turned into a situation of always planning to finish those last few episodes yet never actually doing so. Flash forward to this past Sunday, when during a moment of "What do we do now?" I suggested to a couple of friends that we watch my FLCL bluray collection (a previously unwatched Christmas present). So we start it. Throughout episode 1 both of my friends repeatedly turned to stare at me and ask what the heck I had them watching. By episode 3 I'd lost one of them entirely (he simply wasn't into the show and didn't care to finish it), but the other stuck it out til the end.

I can honestly say that everything I'd heard about the OVA was accurate: it started off crazy and ended just as insane. But daaamn, I still loved it and I'm glad that I finally finished it. I'm just amused that it took me over 10 years to finish a 6 episode series. Amazing how easily time can get away from you. =p

New Game! - Episodes 9-10 - The argument was really cute to watch unfold, especially as it heavily reminded me of myself and a certain friend. :D

Bananya - Episode 9-10 - I really only have one thought when watching this show: How can banana cats be so darn cute?

Re:Zero - Episodes 22-23 - I have little to add that others haven't already said, but for the most part I loved both episodes. Looking forward to seeing how things are resolved next episode, but I'm going to flip a table if he revives before the conclusion of the white whale battle. D:< Hoping for something unexpected!

Orange - Episodes 9-10 - A nice mixture of sad and feel good moments in these past couple episodes. Looking forward to seeing how it concludes in the end.

Food Wars! - Episode 10 - A satisfying conclusion to an entertaining set of episodes. ^^ It feels like the season should be finished, though, so I'm curious to see what's left.

Amanchu! - Episode 9 - I absolutely loved this episode. Never would have imagined when I first started this series that I'd end up enjoying it to this extent. I suppose that I should have learned my lesson after watching Flying Witch...

91 Days - Episode 8 - Two thumbs up for this one. There was a point that I'd felt 91 Days was dragging but it's really brought itself back - this episode being the best yet imo.

The Morose Mononokean - Episodes 9-10 - It's been a really charming series thus far, especially that episode 10. Very interested in picking up the manga for it once the anime concludes. :)

momokuri - Episode 19-20 - There's never too much to say about this one but it never ceases to make me laugh.

Servamp - Episodes 9-10 - I've really enjoyed these past two episodes, likely moreso than any episodes that have come before 'em. I finally feel like I'm starting to get properly invested in the characters.

Tales of Zesteria The X - Episodes 8-9 - Still feeling like Mikleo hasn't come into his own yet in this series, and Edna was a bit too meek for my liking. I'm hoping that they can capture her character better in future episodes. Overall though, I'm enjoying this adaption of the story.

Persona 5 the Animation: The Day Breakers - This seemed like a nice, mostly self-contained introduction to the universe and characters, which makes it a good watch for anyone who's been interested in the game. Great usage of Persona 5's flashy style that we've seen throughout the game trailers, too.

91 Days eps 1-3: Well this is really disappointing. Seems like as dull and cliched a mob show as I can imagine. Not sure if I can motivate myself to stick with it any longer.

Captain Karen
Nisekoi S2-Episodes 7-10

Episode 8: Shu is probably the best Magical Girl villain ever.

Episode 10: I never would've guessed they'd give Shu an episode and develop him but I'm super glad they did.

Berserk (2016)-Episode 11

The battle with Mozgus was brilliant, I really liked his final form. Kind of bummed next week is the finale, as I said before, after a bit of a slow start, it's gotten very interesting and really ramped up in it's latter half. I do hope it ends with the announcement of another season.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure-Episode 24

Just when I was thinking Josuke and everyone found out Kira's identity too soon, they go and pull that. Excellent episode.

Shaman King-Episodes 1 and 2

Checking this one out purely on nostalgia, I loved this show as a kid. These first couple of episodes have been alright, but the plot isn't exactly going just yet. I'm watching it dubbed and, considering it's 4Kids, it's not too bad.
