JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind (Japanese audio) - Episode 22

RIP waking up feeling so HORNY song.

The Quintessential Quintuplets ep 10
Yay, lots of Nino this ep! Things are building up. Art and animation continues to be good. Yeah, all's well.

Date A Live S3 ep 10
Mysteries abound. I've actually kinda forgotten how things fit together, so this is nice to see. And I'm a big fan of more Kurumi. Also long-haired Origami is a thing.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind ep 23
Alright, this ep kinda annoyed me. They're a close team and yet they don't catch on to what's happening with Narancia? And Giorno, the new guy, does? It just reeks of "oh look the protagonist is awesome everyone else is dumb lol". Frustrating.

A Certain Magical Index S3 ep 23
Bleh, the animation wasn't great. Particularly for the fights. Which is a shame because there are some good points in this ep. The Archangel is suitably inhuman and creepy, in particular.

Shinigami
A Certain Magical Index III episode 23 Some decent fights let down by the animation somewhat.

Boogiepop and Others episode 16 The titular title character gets a lot of screentime this week.

Date A Live III episode 10 Can they keep this Origami instead of the edgy one?

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 5: Golden Wind episode 22 Taking the p*ss but no longer waking up feeling so horny.

Doctor Who: The Leisure Hive Visually impressive and inventive in its ideas, this was an intriguing start to the season, though the ending was rather abrupt and the beginning, though wonderfully shot, only really served to incapacitate K9 for the duration of the story. 4/5

Doctor Who: Meglos Barmy and daft (it is a story about an intergalactic cactus that steals the Doctor’s identity) but a lot of fun despite its flaws. Seeing Jacqueline Hill appear again in the Series was nice as well. 3.5/5

Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow (Film) This film suffers from having to trim down more content to fit the runtime and certain scenarios feel less impactful as a result (I.e. Amuro’s desertion, a certain characters death) It was still a decent watch though as a condensed version of the story. 3.5/5

Love, Death + Robots (Netflix)
An anthology of 18 animated shorts.
1. Sonnie's Edge
A cyberpunk story about people fighting with beasts that are controlled by mindlink. Pretty damn cool, with almost photo realistic CGI.

2. Three Robots
An amusing tour around a post-apocalyptic city.

3. The Witness
A surreal chase sequence. It looks like it was live action with animation on top.

4. Suits
The pests these farmers have to face have a bit of a bite to them. The style reminded me of a cartoony game (like Fortnite) cut scene.

5. Sucker of Souls
Those pesky archaeologists always digging up ancient demons. Horror with some dark humour in the first traditional 2D animation of the anthology so far.

6. When the Yogurt Took Over
Yogurt to be joking! Quite amusing, the shortest of the bunch at 6 mins.

7. Beyond the Aquila Rift
Another almost photo realistic CGI one. Sci-fi story about a wrong turn in space and trying to figure out what's happened.

8. Good Hunting
Follows the son of a demon hunter in China/Hong-Kong as magic dies and is replaced by steam punk! Probably the closest to anime (may even be by MAL standards as they have Chinese made stuff in their database and this is made by a South Korean company). Animation is a little off sometimes, but the story is pretty damn cool.
Beware the thumbnail used maybe spoilerific.

9. The Dump
The stig's got a pet.

10. Shape-Shifters
Dog soldiers, literally. Another nearly photo realistic CGI one. Has a pretty epic fight scene.

11. Helping Hand
Same style again. Played out like a more gruesome version of PlanetES.

12. Fish Night
Ghosts in the night. Looked like a Telltale Games game. The latter half also looked stunning.

13. Lucky 13
This ship has "character". More CGI, has some good action scenes.

14. Zima Blue
Searching for ones truth. Interesting style, with a even more interesting take on body proportions!

15. Blindspot
A daring heist. Hard to say on the style, CG but more cartoony (maybe a bit like Borderlands, but not that cartoony).

16. Ice Age
Super quick evolution. This one is live action with proper photo realistic CGI.

17. Alternate Histories
Killing Hitler again and again and again! Quite an amusing one.

18. Secret War
Whilst the main force of the Russian army try to hold off Germany a group of soldiers must try to find and destroy a possibly greater threat. Another CGI one, looked like an extended cut scene from a modern game setting up the story.

An interesting mix of stories. Quite a lot of violence and black humour in most, but some lighter humour in others. A fair bit of nudity in a handful as well.
I would say my favourite 3 are Sonnie's Edge, Sucker of Souls and Good Hunting.

Date A Live III (English Dub) Episode 8

A Certain Magical Index III Episode 23
Really good fights, just a shame about the animation.

Boogiepop and Others Episode 16
A decent episode. With everything that has happened up to this point, it's going to be interesting to see how it's all going to be sorted out in the end.

Date A Live III Episode 10
OK... not going to lie, this version of Origami is much more likeable. At least we got more Kurumi this ep.

Domestic Girlfriend Episode 10
Oh Natsuo... you really are an idiot for making your family worry. At least he got what was coming to him, even if it was slightly OTT.

On a side note... I found this interesting article in regards to Dome x Kano. ---> TVアニメ本編映像 袋とじver.付き ドメスティックな彼女第22巻 特装版 「追加映像は夏生と瑠衣ちゃんとの初体験エッチシーン!処◯膜喪失のアノ場面がぁあああ♪」レビュー・感想 : ヲタブロ

I also watched all 18 episodes of Love, Death + Robots yesterday. They were a good mix of stories. I found the animation for a select bunch to be very video-gamey but it turns out they were actually done by the same animation CG teams who worked on a number of video game projects. I do think the marketing could have made it a bit clearer on how the shorts are laid out because I was under the assumption that each short included the themes of love, death and robots, when it turns out that was not the case - which did confuse my expectations a fair bit. Never the less, my favourite of the bunch is 'Good Hunting' but I also really enjoyed 'Beyond the Aquila Rift' and 'Zima Blue'. 'Three Robots' and 'Blindspot' were good fun too.

I thought that as well and the first one sort of had all 3, but as it progressed I was like OK not all of them will have all 3, and now I think about it only a handful had some form of love (or lust really), a lot had robots (or mechanical things) in them and the vast majority had death in them.
So yeah a little bit misleading, but I can't say any of them were bad, so definitely worth watching.

Yeah. Looking around I realised Beyond the Aquila Rift technically feels like a version of Saya no Uta.

I just read part of the plot of that on Wikipedia, does sound very similar. Apparently it's getting a live action adaptation!
Aquila is definitely one of the shorts that maybe could be expanded into something bigger.

Kemono Friends s2 e9
The Friend who was searching for Kyururu is revealed, but isn't quite what you expected.

WATATEN! ep 10
I'm not sure which "relationship" is creepier Miyako and Hana or Kouko and Miyako. At least the former has some sweet (or should that "sweets") moments.

Ekoda-chan ep 10
Well that was bizarre even for this show. 3D scanned faces on top of tiny marionettes singing a weird song! Interesting to see a different type of animation (it's the only episode where I've watched the whole interview part), but it doesn't really have the charm of some of the other episodes.

Mob Psycho 100 s2 e10
I got the feeling that everything was sort of on hold until Mob woke up. Lots of action, but the good guys nearly all lost!

The Quintessential Quintuplets ep 10
Test of courage and Uesugi seems to have put his foot in it with all 5 of them!

Hinomaru Sumo ep 22
2 more bouts in the nationals final. It's obviously going to go down to the last bout.
