Mob Psycho 100 II episode 10 Fighting for the sake of insurance.
Avengers: Infinity War (Film) (Rewatch) Decided to rewatch this before seeing Captain Marvel tomorrow afternoon. It’s quite the epic and manages to cram in a lot of story. I’m curious to see how everything will be undone in Endgame. 4/5
Princess Principal episodes 10-12 [End] - A pretty great series from studios Actas and 3hz with an interesting setting and a well developed cast of characters. The steampunk alternate London aesthetic was well executed and was complimented with a wonderful jazz style soundtrack by Yuki Kajiura. Unfortunately the story could've benefited from being a 2 cour production as it felt like the series ended rather abruptly with some story still left unresolved. Thankfully Actas x 3hz are currently producing a sequel film series so that should tie everything up nicely. 8/10
The neighbor couple was over last night and we watched Episode 8 of gen:LOCK in the theater. This was actually the last episode of Season 1, but it was very intense and a great finish to the season. Unfortunately now we'll have a very long wait until next January for Season 2...
We then started in on Part II of Kuromukuro, watching episodes 14-17 before calling it a night. Here come the Ogres!
The Irregular at Magic High episodes 1-13
This is pretty average and predictable but I just needed a something on Netflix I hadn't seen yet and it's been sat there staring at me for ages. I'll finish it off with the second cour but I'm in no rush for it.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime episode 23
The first half of this episode was same as usual but what happened in the rest? It felt like some poor bugger got run over and they had to do with filler.
Today I watched the anime called " the napping princess " to be honest I was kind of attracted by the funny title. but it turned out to be really interesting anime in which the reality mixes with fantasy. but it can also be defined scientifically. the anime looks simple bt it has many intriguing curiosity to it.
A fantasy/horror cult favourite among the vintage anime crowd, I thought it was the first REM OVA that I'd seen before, but it must have been a later episode - I didn't remember this one at all. Famously, the first episode was originally released as a hentai title, before its popularity saw it re-edited for a wider market, and it does show. It's not difficult to guess where certain scenes were presumably cut, and the first half does come across as a little skeezy at times, albeit probably no worse than the livelier instalments of the Monogatari franchise today.
That said, it's not hard to see why it would be considered for mainstream release. The Elm Street style premise of REM entering peoples' dreams to exorcise their demons is quite novel. Although the budget was clearly limited, there's some real care gone into fancy animation details (notably REM's brief Poltergeist style delusion about her skin falling off), while the creature design is both admirably weird and endearingly cheeky - one of those floating apparitions was clearly Ultraman...
My only word of warning would be that, despite the cutesy, magical-girl like designs on the cover, the show is quite explicitly gory at times, particularly in the second episode, where a comedically dressed serial killer starts carving people up inside their dreams.
Well, my neighbors both happen to like mecha, and I always let them pick which anime they want to watch. I can show them the few mecha series I do have and am ok with - Kuromukuro, Aldnoah Zero, Escaflowne, IBO, and a couple others. Granted, I would prefer there not be giant mech in the stories, I just have to roll my eyes and tolerate it - the mecha is my least favorite part of any of those shows. Kuromukuro does also have a bit too much cutesy and high school in it for me, so I do cringe at that too. Lol, not really sure why I still like it, actually...
Run With the Wind ep 21
This ep featured the sections of probably my two favourite characters, so it was really nice to watch for me. It occurs to me now that rather little happened. Both sections were fairly simple and just gave us some backstory. But they were nice anyway.
That Time I Reincarnated as a Slime ep 23
Well that finishes all the light novels out in English. More or less. I'm slightly confused as to what they're doing for the last two episodes, as there clearly won't be time for a new plotline.
Endro~! ep 9
Money doesn't grow on trees, but Cartado do! I've enjoyed this series so far, but I found this episode a bit dull.
SAO: Alicization ep 21
Decent fight at the start. The confrontation at the end and the moment leading up to the reveal of the next boss was a little weird.
Apparently it was a good thing I wasn't really paying attention to the OP!
Katana Maidens ~ Mini Toji ep 9
Ueno-san ep 10
The Magnificent KOTOBUKI ep 9
I really haven't got the foggiest idea what's going on with the main plot, but the dogfights are still excellent (if a bit repetitive in terms of having one every single episode!)
Karakuri Circus eps 19-20
OK, now the flashbacks are over, I think.
