Yuru Yuri-Episodes 1-4

I should've watched this way sooner. The gimmick of Akari being the main character yet having no presence and frequently being ignored is way funnier than it should be.

Castle Town Dandelion-Episode 12 (Complete)

Glad to get that out the way.
Boruto: Naruto next Generations episode 36

Black Clover
episode 10

Food Wars! The Third Plate episode 10

episodes 5-12 (Complete. This was a pretty meh anime, that didn't really keep me that engaged. It's a cool premise but the characters and story just didn't click with me until the second half. From there the series is more enjoyable and fun, but overall I wasn't all that impressed. Maybe a rewatch in the future might improve my opinion of it. I'll probably check out season 2 eventually as well, though I know how the overall LN series ends and it's pretty meh.) 2.5/5

Hellsing (Rewatch) episodes 1-13 (Complete. A very enjoyable series, and despite it being overshadowed by Ultimate it has an ambient and distinct atmosphere. It takes itself more seriously and portrays the characters differently. It feels more grounded, where Ultimate is more grandiose and action-packed. Their contrast compliments each other nicely.) 4/5
Lu Over the Wall (sub at the cinema)
A mash up of Ponyo with elements of A Letter to Momo and a hint of Yellow Submarine. Brilliantly trippy in many places with a very good sound track.

Wolf Children (dub)
"I'm not crying, it's just rain"

Ergo Proxy (dub) eps 1-3
I think understand what's going on, I think!


And you thought there is never a Grav online
Inuyashiki Last Hero (Japanese audio) - Episode 9
King's Game the Animation (Japanese audio) - Episode 10

Oh boy these two episodes. Inuyashiki is bonkers and this episode actually shocked me. King's Game on the other hand has decisions which are so stupid but you just can't help watch the insanity that happens.
Frozen (Japanese Language w/English Subtitles)

Love this film. Third rewatch

For me one of the stronger LGBT Disney films, For the First time in Forever and Let it Go being two songs that always make me think :(

Quoted from For the first time in forever
Don't let them in, don't let them see. Be the good girl you always have to be.
Conceal don't feel, put on a show, make one wrong move and everyone will know.
While its understandable that this should be taken (in the context of the film) Elsa needs to control her magic, the meaning of both these songs can also be seen as how Family/Friends isolate or control LGBT people to be seen as /Normal/ to society

Also... Someones going to point out this isn't anime and should be put in the Films Section. Yep but I try and keep the two media together for Viewing Journal things. Especially when I've watched them dubbed in Japanese

Inuyashki-Episode 9

Absolutely brutal. I was half expecting that baby to get shot in the face from the phone. Unsure if what actually happened was any better...
Ergo Proxy eps 4-6
If the first 3 episodes were set-up, these 3 seem to take a pause where we don't learn much in terms of what was set up so far.

Girls' Last Tour eps 7 & 8
More nice interactions between the girls, I especially liked the end of 8 when they find some beer and not knowing what it is drink 3 bottles between them and consequently get drunk.
It seems whilst the show so far has been free, the latest episode is still premium. Only have to wait till tomorrow (2PM). Though it'll be a waiting game from now on. The confusing thing is that it's labelled as having 12 episodes when only 9 are there unlike Crunchyroll which only counts the episodes that are actually available.

Konohana Kitan continues to have a perfect all-episode 10/10 score from me.

Quite impressive although it should be noted that Slice of Life shows are my favorite genre and thus, usually get a rather bias rating from me.


Pokémon Master
Invincible Steel Man Zambot 3 - Episode 20

Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu - Episodes 5 - 7 (Blu-ray)

It's really very silly in places but I am enjoying Fumoffu a lot, a good offset to some of the grimness of Zambot 3!

Gundam Build Fighters: Battlogue - Episode 3

More Obari led Gundam fun!!
With Sword of the Stranger being on the AL Christmas deals today I thought I'd watch a couple of Ninja films from the Manga Force Collection.

Ninja Scroll
I'd forgotten most of the story, apart from the very violent ambush scene and the sexual assault scene that followed, so I was pleasantly surprised that it was a better film than my memory had let on.


Sword for Truth
It starts out OK, with a fairly straight forward plot about a kidnapped Princess and a Ninja hired to get her back, but then elements are introduced that split the main plot in two neither getting satisfactory endings, and others that are one scene and don't go anywhere or aren't explained in terms of the main plot.

Hellsing Ultimate (Rewatch) OVAs 6-10 (Complete. Brutal, violent and bloody good fun. Ultimate is a series unafraid of its over the top tone and plot, and instead embraces it with superb animation, characters and awesome set pieces. Of course it makes for perfect December viewing ;)) 4/5
