Watched Oldboy the other day. Great great film! I was surprised by how much I had actually forgotten about the intricacies of the story!

Also been watching Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. About half way through so far. Really enjoy the politics and overall story of the show but christ have they made these characters unlikable. Does make it tough at times! With the exception of Bright and Emma I dont particularly like anyone.

Ace of Diamond Act II ep 28
Black Clover ep 104
Z/X Code Reunion ep 1
Jet Girls ep 1
School-Live! ep 8-12 [END]

Really good, not a anime I'd rewatch as it's hard to watch for me but either way powerful stuff. 7/10

Stand My Heroes: Piece of Truth ep 1
Not the most thrilling episode. A procession of anime pretty boys are introduced, along with our female MC who gets the job of recruiting even more anime pretty boys to a crime squad.
Another candidate for the drop, if it's more office politics than action then it'll probably go. But just like the Unit 7 show there was a scene at the start where the MC witnessed a traumatic event as a kid and hints at some sort of criminal syndicate which may have been involved (and in this case seems interested in the MC due to her unique ability).

Disenchantment s2
Finally finished this. Funnier than the first, I felt. Storywise it picked up from the last for the first 3 eps or so, then went to individual eps with hints of the overall plot before the last 2 seemed to forget about it, until a cliffhanger in the final scene. So I guess they'll be a third season.

Not as funny as The Lego Movie.

Really good start! Toda Mai's character designs and supervision really stand out here and work well with the comedy.

This looks to be a fun school club series.

Hellraiser
Time for a good classic. Really like how the cenobites differ from the usual horror monsters in that they're merely there as a neutral force. Frank's rebirth is still such an iconic scene helped by an amazing soundtrack.

Starting last week, so far I've watched:

This Hero is Overpowered but Too Cautious - Ep 1 - Very funny, and some brilliant character animation
Kemono Michi Rise Up - Ep 1 - Not as good as I was hoping, some decent gags, but will see where it goes
After School Dice Club
- Ep 1 - As someone just getting into Board Games, this was right up my street. Fantastic seeing all the real games drawn in the background.
Ascendence of a Bookworm
- Ep 1 - The revived in another body setup is not my favourite, but the MC is fairly endearing, so will give it a couple more eps to see what happens.
Oresuki
- Ep 1 - Took a while to break from initial dull harem/rom-com setup, but then was constantly funny.
High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even in Another World! -
Ep 1 - This was super dull and uninteresting. One more ep to see if it actually has any interesting characters.
Azur Lane
- Ep 1 - Don't play the game, but considering the franchise is pretty unavoidable, thought I'd check it out. Was fine even if I had no idea what really was going on.
Dr. STONE
- Ep 5 to 14 - Caught up as I was busy with other things during the summer season. Been reading the manga for this, but its a breezy and easy binge watch.
Null Peta
- Ep 1 - Not long enough to get a sense of, no harm trying a couple more eps.
Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun
- Ep 1 - Pretty bonkers group of characters. Was amused. Interested to see more of the characters.
Special 7 - Special Crime Investigation Unit - Ep 1 - Every rookie gets introduced to an off-the-books police department story ever. Didn't do anything for me.
Africa Salaryman
- Ep 1 - Bizzare animation style, and unfortunately, a lot of time given to just the worst character. That said, it did get laughs.
Val X Love
- Ep 1 - Did not read the genre tags for this, so very surprised. Not for me though.
Babylon
- Ep 1 - Only done the first episode so far, but am intrigued and gripped and want to see where it goes.
Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!
- Ep 1 - Cute enough, will give it a shot.
Kandagawa Jet Girls
- Ep 1 - Again, didn't read the tags for this. Better than Val as at least it isn't skirting around the nudity. Not my type of show though, so I'd have to be very bored to watch more.

Babylon ep1

A rather rote first episode, but it shows promise at the end. It's nice to see a show concerning and clearly aimed at adults for a change, but the problem facing a straightforward thriller, especially one like this with such an apparent lack of any visual flair, is that it's up against a lot of stiff competition from live-action TV. There was one shot early on that could conceivably have been a nod to Twin Peaks and, thus far, it sure ain't on that level.

Hellraiser is a solid film though I think its sequel Hellbound is even better. Shame the rest of the sequels are a case of diminishing returns.

Yeah I haven't bothered with anything past the third one. They should've just left it at the first two.

Bloodlines has some good ideas but afaik there was a lot of changes made behind the scenes which resulted in a mess of a film. I actually liked Inferno but that’s basically a thriller with the cenobites tacked on to market it as a Hellraiser film. Not bothering with Judgement as they didn’t even ask Doug Bradley to come back apparently.

Claymore (Japanese & English audio) - Episodes 23-26 (Completed)

I decided to watch the last two episodes dubbed considering its anime original, but the dub is pretty good. Outside of the final four or so episodes, this show is surprisingly good. The story is pretty solid and the characters are likable, and it has been compared quite often to Berserk, though I see Claymore as a toned-down version with a female Guts-like protagonist. I knew there was a lot of hate for Raki but he's not in the show that much when you look back at it and I didn't find him to be annoying compared to other characters from other franchises.

YU-NO (dub) (eps 7-9)
Episode 7 is a re-watch as it was the start of an arc. I also switched to the dub in the hope of understanding stuff a bit more as reading subs, especially on complicated shows, isn't always the best option for me.
It's a bit weird as some of the cast sound too old, but whatever.

Ahiru no Sora episode 2 Wonder how many episodes it’ll take for the others to take the sport seriously?

After School Dice Club episode 2 Card game time.

Ascendance of a Bookworm episode 2 Blood and books.

Blade of the Immortal (2019) episodes 1-2 I’m already liking this more than the previous adaptation, the visual style is great.

Radiant 2nd Season episode 2 Deals in the rain.

House IV: The Repossession (Film)

Love Lab!
episodes 3-13 (Complete. A lively series of student council shenanigans with a cast that gelled together well.) 3.5/5

Ergo Proxy ep1-3

Tried watching this some years ago, but never quite got into it - having been sold it as a cyberpunk series, I found its curious, goth-like aesthetic kind of offputting. Coming back to it now, I think it's easier to appreciate, but it is a very brown show, with everything rendered in sepia tones, save for occasional highlights like Re-l's blue eye makeup. If nothing else, I did like the little nod to Battleship Potemkin with the lost pram tumbling down the steps.
