Paranoia Agent eps 11-13
So the whole thing is about the figment of one persons imagination that somehow sent everybody into a mass psychological meltdown which destroyed the city! I guess it's a sort of commentary on the influence of famous people/popular culture.
So on the Satoshi Kon confus-ometer, the rankings from least to most confusing is:
Tokyo Godfathers > Millennium Actress > Perfect Blue > Paranoia Agent > Paprika

Citrus ep 3
Talk about mixed messages from Mei!

Darling in the FranXX ep 2 (On Hold)
Well this show certainly upped on the fanservice and 'symbolism'.

Certainly is a unique control interface :oops: ;) :D

Alright, so round 2/3 of the current season is done. And I've whittled down my watch list to D1tchd1gger's Anime List - MyAnimeList.net

Of the binge later list, I might wait and see what the English VA is like for FranXX and Katana Maidens before binging them and Beatless might get dropped if it doesn't improve over that episode 2 filler (episode 3 preview looked interesting at least). Oh and I need to get Basilisk: The Kouga Ninja Scrolls before resuming the current follow up.

Darling in the franXX episode 2 Well that's one way to pilot a mech I guess, "Get it up already!" "I'm trying" Also aside from the obvious Evangelion references, I'm getting serious Aquarion EVOL vibes here.

Pop Team Epic episode 3 So they're gonna repeat the episode each week eh?

The Ancient Magus' Bride
episode 15 Wasn't expecting an attempted drowning this week...

Senran Kagura: Ninja Flash episodes 1-6

Lovely Animation and Visuals with great characters.. Very much looking forward to this series even knowing I'm going to be sat in a corner crying by the end of it
/NO SPOILERS PLEASE

The ancient Magus Bride (Episode 15)- Man, I'm just not interested anymore. It's like every episode something bad happens to Chise, only to be resolved in a couple of minutes. It's basically "The boy who cried wolf", I'm no longer interested in Chise's story. The second half was great though, Silky is adorable.

Citrus (Episode 3)- I thought the Grandpa's change of heart was quick and abrupt, but the rest was pretty good. I'm going to stick with it.

Darling in the Franxx (Episode 2)- Hahaha! This series isn't even trying to be subtle, and I love it! In starting to like the main character now, he was boring in the first episode, but after piloting the mech with Zero Two he's been a lot more motivated. Speaking of Zero Two, she's awesome. Definitely my favourite character in this show so far. Oh, and I like the Op & Ed songs.

I haven't watched Cardcaptor Sakura at all this week (I've been busy lately), so maybe I'll get around to watching a few later today.

Hunter x Hunter - Episodes 62 - 67 - Still not sold on this arc tbh, Bisky is kinda alright but I feel I'm just sitting about waiting on something to actually happen, although considering how the last episode ended I think that's something is about to go down.

I think I also watched an episode of The Ancient Magus Bride since I last posted but not sure, as excited as I was at the start I'm really struggling to find any enthusiasm to watch it, which is a shame as I do like it well enough, kinda weird really.

Pop Team Epic ep3

Didn't think it was as funny this week, although it did amuse me to see them reference both Cho Aniki and Fantasy Zone in the shoot em up segement. Not bothering to look at the 'Encore' version anymore though.

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens ep1

Well, that was a bold opener. The art is occasionally a little janky, but I'm intrigued by this, it seems like a scummier version of Durarara.

Kokkoku ep 3
Seems my guess on ep 2 was right as Juri's power is revealed. And there's another cliffhanger, my guess this week is that either her brother or nephew saves her with their power (or maybe her sister who we haven't seen much of).

Boy, that hacking scene was very ... early 2000s

Citrus-Episode 3

Watching Yuzu discover her feelings is very endearing, I do hope Mei stops being so Tsun soon though

The Ancient Magus' Bride-Episode 15

Is anyone else becoming increasingly apathetic to Magus Bride? I started off adoring it but now I'm just so nonplussed every week. Sure, it still looks good, but I feel like nothing really happens. Like, the few episodes tried to have these cliffhanger endings that made you think something was going to happen, only for it to be quickly resolved in the next episode with no real issues. The whole thing also lacks any real sort of cohesiveness. It just feels sort of bodged together. That Silky bit in the last episode, for example, just felt really tacked on to fill time, as opposed to adding to anything that's happening. It kind of makes me sad, I really thought I was going to love this show, and whilst I still like it, I can't help but feel I care an awful lot less about it recently.

Mitsuboshi Colours-Episode 3

Sacchan is quickly becoming one of my favourite characters this season.

I know how you feel, each week I tune in I find myself feeling less invested. The recurring "quickly resolved cliffhanger" trait is becoming a bit stale for me as well. I'm hoping the story picks up again, since I have quite enjoyed the series for the most part, but do have problems with some of the narrative choices.

The Ancient Magus' Bride-Episode 15 - I don't agree with @IncendiaryLemon regarding the show, im very much enjoying the attention to detail and subtle myth/ legend references. Magus Bride is part SOL and as with many SOL shows it's rather episodic. I thought this weeks was a weaker episode but I enjoyed seeing more about Silkys past

Darling in the Fraxx ep 2 -yep im defiantly feeling this, cant wait for more

Beatless ep 2 - awful episode which has the female android become a fashion model, pointless

Garo ep 15 - no Gina this week

Animegataris END:

Man how did this show fall of the rails so hard.? It was at least somewhat grounded in the first half but the big plus was it was enjoyable but I had no idea what the hell was happening or why they decided to go this route, ruined characters. There is being meta then there is this, stupid total horse poop. Never touching this show again. Man the autumn season just collapsed with the exception of Magus Bride, Kitan and Sister.

Haven't got to Magus Bride (people above seem to be suggesting it's running out of steam), but enjoyed Inyuashiki and really liked Girls' Last Tour and Recovery of an MMO Junkie.
Also caught KK and thought that was really good as well.

It is one of those hype anime so people feeling that way is bound to happen especially being second cour with new fresh-er shows starting. I fully expect the similar reactions to Violet Evergarden once the hype leaves and you're halfway through the cour- I have no illusions about that show and have critiqued it heavily already if it doesn't improve I fully expect others to do the same.

Senran Kagura: Ninja Flash episodes 7-12 (Complete. This is an okay series. It knows what its purpose is: Action and fan service, and it does just that, whilst throwing in some alright characters and fun set pieces. Overall this is average-not great but not bad.) 3/5

Serial Experiments Lain episodes 1-6
And you don't seem to understand, a shame you seemed an honest man...
