Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 A decent precursor to the film directed by the ever awesome Shinichiro Watanabe.

Blade Runner 2049
(Film) This was just amazing, completely blew me away.

31 Days of Halloween Day 10: Bride of Frankenstein (1935, James Whale) A solid sequel that's aged fairly well.

Dragon Ball Super - #109-110.
Hot hot hot damn. Ended up getting up at 2.30am on Sunday for the simulcast which Daisuki then uploaded at 3am then servers were down after 30 mins of refreshing and struggling almost giving up and going back to bed then the mobile app finally started working again and I managed to watch! And holy hell did this deliver, don't think there was a better 40 mins of DB ever, the animation, the art, the music, the direction, the storyboarding and we even got a freaking insert song!! And Goku's new form is lit (pun intended) as all!!

Myriad Colors Phantom World- #1
Pretty enjoyable first episode actually, really good OP too!

MHA- #Second last episode of S2
Solid end to this challenge, some good character moments for Bakugo and Deku.

Need to finish Hyouka 18-22 and Alice and Z.
Haruhi really can turn her hand to anything and Yuki Nagato rocks
Fun fact about the band scene: it was apparently animated at 30 frames per second instead of the usual 24 in order to give it a bit of a live-action feel.

Looking at the LN list there could be some more, but it's already 7 years since the film.
Wanna be the Strongest in the World, Episodes 1 - 6

Actually started watching this again a couple of weeks ago, but didn't manage to keep up with it by time it was taken down.

My First Girlfriend is a Gal
, Episode 10 [Completed]

I think without the English Dub to carry me through I probably wouldn't have gotten through it, what a terrible bunch of people.

Clean Freak! Aoyama kun, Episodes 10 - 12 [Completed]

It truly was one of those shows that lacked any real consistency, some episodes were mildly entertaining, others failed to hold my interest.

New Game!!, Episodes 4 - 7
Juni Taisen: Zodiac War ep 2
Looks like dog bite off more than he could chew!
IIRC Rat wins in the Chinese story of the race. Don't know if that would be too obvious for the writers, but always watch out for the quiet ones
31 Days of Halloween Day 11: Pulse (2001, Kiyoshi Kurosawa) This was an intriguing J-Horror dealing with the supernatural and early computers. Like many J Horrors it has an uneasy quietness to it that many of today's American Horrors replace with jumpsares and ott soundtracks.

Black Clover
episode 2 "I'm gonna be the wizard king, believe it!"

Boruto: Naruto next Generations
episode 28 This arc is looking to be decent so far.

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse episodes 3-24 (Complete. A solid mecha anime with good leads and secondary characters, but nothing groundbreaking story-wise.) 3.5/5

The Ancient Magus' Bride episode 1 This is shaping up to be very interesting, liking the concept so far.

Danganronpa: The Animation ep3-4

I was always more interested in playing the game than watching the series, but this seems fine enough. Not entirely sure that the artstyle transfers all that well to animation though - something about the main character's hair bothers me.

Seraph of the End ep3-4

There's some nice touches to the animation, as you'd expect from WIT, but this seems decidedly mediocre otherwise, with the characterisation particularly lacking.
The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan Ep 1-4
The animation style is a little off putting, not bad, just not as good as the main series. And Nagato is now positively chatty even compared to the alternative reality version in the film which is supposed to be the reality of this series, or is this a third reality because Kyon doesn't know of Haruhi. Oh and speaking of, after the first two episodes I was kinda bummed to see her turn up as more than a cameo as her personality takes over everyone elses and then she threw a spanner in the works in episode 4. I was like you've had 2 seasons and a movie it Nagatos turn, I mean it's her name in the title!

Also the Funimation app on the PS4 sucks, I signed up for the free trail as there are a few dubs I wanted to watch, but now I'm definitely going to have to cram them into the 14 days I've got as no way am I going to pay for it if that's how it performs!
