Devil is a Part Timer episode 8
My Hero Academia episodes 1-35
Great shounen can't wait to finish S2 and get to S3 in April.
Juni Taisen ep8
Much as it fills in a lot of character, that was not one of the more entertaining episodes. Also I suppose going on the show's general structure, Dragon's imminent death is now far more likely.
Hah, well spotted! Rather than do them individually, I just photographed all three cards I got at once:
Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic (complete...finally)
What the... fudge?! Oh my god, that's killing me!
I highly, highly recommend the 26-episode series that this spawned. It's genuinely one of the funniest things I've even seen. "In a good way."
I give it the full 10/10.
Very nice again. I got the Venus Wars one as well. I enjoyed that film!
The card for Dragon Dentist is great, too. The artwork is this...
... with the logo on the back. (Along with the revelation "Coming to Blu-ray from Anime Limited".)
Gundam Reconguista in G episodes 10-13
Night on the Galactic Railroad
Beyond the Boundary movie 1: Past
I thought this was actually pretty decent for a highlights film. It's very obvious that it's a highlights film, though: it started to become quite amusing how, every time it cut back to Mirai and Akihito, they always seemed to be battered and bruised from yet another battle we'd just missed!
Pretty impressive that it got to the content of episode 10 after only about 38 minutes, though.
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia episode 3 with Japanese commentary
Thank goodness we've now got the lead male seiyuu in the booth. Not sure I could've handled another solo commentary!
Two more from the Manga Force Collection:
An enjoyable 3 OVA series about a squad of women in mech suits against terrorist that the police can't handle. Didn't particularly matter that it was a sequel to Bubblegum Crisis, which I haven't seen.
Blood: The Last Vampire (rewatch)
Some of the CG has dated, but some of it still holds up. The character model faces sometimes look a bit weird as well. Overall an enjoyable, if short film.

Akane and Kotarou make quite a sweet couple, but for me they're too similar to get the best out of each other. I'm shipping Chinatsu & Kotarou, and Akane & Hira
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Th-th-that's all folks!
Have I mentioned this is a 10/10 series enough yet?
I've not seen the series and was planning on watching the two films. Would you recommend holding out and watching the series first or does the first film cover it okay?
Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!! (Japanese audio) - Episodes 9-12 (Complete)
Well this show was something.
November on-disc backlog progress:
#01 | The Tatami Galaxy
#02 | Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid
#03 | Space Dandy Season 2
#04 | Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine
#05 | Serial Experiments Lain
#06 | Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!!
The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan
Love Live! School Idol Project Season 2
If there's time I may add Blood Lad to this month's backlog progress.
Depeche Mode live at the O2
Fate / Zero ep16-17
Things are certainly moving now. I still find myself wondering what this show would be like if it had been a single cour instead of two, though. It's difficult to pin down exactly what you could cut, but as a full 26 episodes, it does feel stretched out.
Exceptional episode. Definitely the hidden gem of the season.
Ep 8 of Black Clover
Definitely hold out for the series, I'd say. The first film would give you a broad understanding of the world of Beyond the Boundary but no more than that. The supporting characters get little to no screen time, so you wouldn't get the chance to become familiar with them or learn about their back stories or abilities. You'd also miss out on a lot of the brilliantly animated action sequences.
Once you've seen the series, so could probably just skip the vast majority of movie 1, but make sure to watch the brief post-credits sequence, because it's a new bit that sets up the story for movie 2. Other than that part, movie 1 is just a pure clip show with nothing new to see — totally unlike the Gurren Lagann movies you were asking about before!
Grav's post reminded me of HWR's Berserk-related one from a while back:
I'm hoping it's the image on the left that's the fixed version? The one on the right is super-CG!
No wonder I skipped it all 3 times I watched Future
