DARLING in the FRANXX eps 3+4
I feel embarrassed I didn't consciously pick up on this before, but the robots in this are hand-drawn, aren't they? No wonder they look so dynamic.

(Really enjoying this series.)


The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan ep 4
... aka 'Kyon's words of wisdom'. These made me smile:

"Taniguchi, if your hopes are too high, your despair will deepen."

"Taniguchi, resignation can prevent you from feeling pointless suffering."
 
Takagi #3

Nice change of scenery not just stuck in a classroom! But those random 3 girls are still the best parts of these episodes.

Rumbling Hearts #6-7
"Well if it isn't the back stabbing bitch".

What. Am. I. Even. Watching...?
 
Junji Ito collection 4

Still not feeling this, first story seemed like it was meant to be more creepy than it was but second story is my favourite so far. Still seemed like it could of done with ramping up the creepoid factor though.

Basilisk the ouka ninja scrolls 3

Better than the previous 2, looking forward to the time skip whenever that pops up.

Darling in the FRANX 2

Enjoying this so far currently.
 
Fate/Extra Last Encore (Episodes 1-3)

I'm enjoying this so far. You you tell it's a SHAFT production with it's bizarre editing and directing making everything seem even more surreal and head tilts. I was also very confused about what was even happening at first but going through the episodes a second time I think i'm getting it . I'm also playing through the PSP game at the moment and this is really different. Red Saber is amazing, she's adorable and energetic, a nice contrast from the Saber from F/SN. Also UMU! If there is one thing that i'm disappointed in, it's the fight in episode 3. It was over way too soon, and not much even happened in it. Which is a shame, because I really like this Rider from the game, and thought she needed more screen time here.

The OP & ED for this show are great as well. The songs are great, and the animation in the OP is fluid and nice to watch. It's a bit weird that it's just Saber fighting nothing, but apparently it's going to evolve through the course of the series.
 
A Place Further Than the Universe ep 7 (Twice, again!!)
Another great episode with the same great mix of emotions as always. We meet some new people and learn of their motivations. The journey itself takes a pause, but seems back up and running next episode.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san ep 6
It's summer break, but Nishikata still can't escape from the teasing.

Dagashi Kashi s2 e3
Not as funny as the last episode, but I still liked it. The flashback was cool. 12 mins seemed too short this week.

I dropped Franxx ep 2 and don’t regret
I put it on hold after 2 to see how people here react. Seems to have improved a bit (the MAL score also went back up a bit). But it's a 2 cour so it could dip again.
 
Black Clover episode 19 Insert tragic villan backstory here. He totally won't become a supporting character later on (not that I'm complaining.)

Overlord II episode 6 Sebas is pretty awesome,'nuff said.

Ajin: Demi-Human episodes 1-13 (Complete. An intriguing set up for the second season, this first cour gives us the Main character and antagonist. The narrative is straightforward, but engaging. I get Tokyo Ghoul vibes from the plight of the Ajin and the organisation trying to eradicate them. I look forward to acquiring the second season should/when AL release it.) 4/5

A Place Further Than The Universe (episode 7) (but not twice)
This one definitely is my favourite of the season and I'll watch it again at some point but @D1tchd1gger is really going overboard (bdum-tish) watching each one twice. I expect it to hype it up a bit much, but give it a chance anyway if you've not seen it.

I've ended up dropping a few this season so I need to have a look and pick a few new series. Any recommendations?

I keep watching it on my phone ASAP and then on my TV later. Also to make sure I catch everything. But also cos it's great.

How can I recommend anything if you don't keep your MAL upto date 😜
My favourites, apart from the obvious, are Yuru Camp (CGDCT), Citrus (Yuri, but the story isn't bad) and Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens (hitman action with a cool soundtrack) all on Crunchyroll and After the Rain (SOL romance with a twist) on Amazon.

I'll second Yuru Camp it's one of my favs of this season.
