Being off work sick on Friday had it's advantages... caught up a little.
Wise Man's Grandchild ep 9-10
You've gotta respect this show for not just going the typical harem route (which says a lot about the quality of the average isekai), although the romance isn't exactly the most captivating. Still decent, though. And yay, plot progression.
Ace of the Diamond Act II ep 10-11
Exploring the foibles of some of the new characters and where they're likely to fit in. Nice and slow-paced.
Strike Witches: 501st Joint Fighter Wing Take Off! ep 9-10
Still loving this. It's just such dumb fun.
The Rising of the Shield Hero ep 22-23
Ah yes, reminders of how gamelike the world is. Honestly kinda surprised they're bothering with this arc, although it will make a solid ending point I suppose.
One Punch Man 2nd Season ep 9
I was expecting to be eh about this episode, but the discussion between Saitama and King is an absorbing one about apathy and depression, even if it's basically describing the typical problem.
Cinderella Nine ep 8
The classic for this type of show: problem occurs, everyone bands together to solve it. Not that formulaic necessarily means bad.
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind ep 33-34
I've been quite eh about Jojo's for quite a few episodes now, but these were very good. It does help that Diavolo is pretty hot.
Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life ep 11
Ah, the strongest rivals. Makes me interested as to what route they'll take for the team's performance. I'm expecting failure, but with a strong showing to give them hope for next time and make other schools pay attention to them.
Fruits Basket (2019) ep 11
I have nothing really to say about this. Some development aside, it wasn't anything particularly new. Still cute and funny though.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba ep 11 Ah, Zenitsu and Inosuke. The two secondary protagonists, I guess you could say? It does make me realise how slowly the manga developed considering they're only being properly introduced now, at a point which would be right near the end of most anime.
I mean, there are a lot of girls around, sure. But the only one who's really interested in the protag is Sicily (how do they spell her name in the subs? I forget) and they're in an official relationship.
The catch up continues with the full length shows. I think I'll do 3 eps per show at a time as not to burn out, so I'll not be completely upto date: We Never Learn eps 8-10
More teaching and romantic/ecchi mishaps. Plus a new character in Asumi, seems to be an interesting person.
Midnight Occult Civil Servants eps 8-10
Not much to the first episode, but the next 2 were interesting with the cases and meeting someone with a different attitude to the Anothers.
Demon Slayer eps 8-10
Tanjiro meets a couple of friendly demons and then has to fight a couple of Kibutsuji's henchmen.
Really enjoyed the start this show. Had no idea what to expect and after a fairly comedic start ep4 allowed for more emotional scenes to play out and really elevated the show a notch. Looking forward to where it goes next.
Attack on Titan Season 3 Episode 20
Wow, just wow. Another solid and mind blowing episode of AoT. All of these reveals and truths have left me speechless. That general though... (despite it being so blatantly obvious), killing Grisha's sister and having the nerve and the balls to lie to the parents faces, not to mention turning people into Titans just because he finds it "INTERESTING"... that's just messed up. He's the kind of man who has seen some s**t and lost his f*****g mind in the process (hense the "Interest in turning people into Titans") imo. At least in the end he got what he deserved.
Dororo Episode 23
Descending further into the abyss of madness, plus a few more fatalities.
Yatogame-chan Observation Diary Episode 11
Keeping cool and a change of uniform.
