Stars Align ep 9
This should be renamed "Parents Are Assholes" All the characters have at least one parent who treats them badly or at the very least disapproves of them in some way.
Kabukichou Sherlock ep 9
I'm thinking there's a lot of misdirection going on here.
No Guns Life ep 9
Blast from the past.
Who spotted the NGE nod?
Kono Oto Tomare! s2 e10
Doin' it for my senpai.
Konosuba s1 eps 9 & 10 + OVA (complete)
Episode 9 got a bit awkward, quite a funny set up, but a bit creepy in the execution. The show hadn't been particularly ecchi till this episode, so that also made it seem out of place.
Episode 10 was quite funny and had some epic moments.
The OVA again went a bit creepy, but it's a side story and it quite usual for OVAs to go fanservice-y, so gets more of a pass than ep 9.
Overall it was quite funny with a few LOL moments, but some that fell flat. I do like the angle of the MC not being OP, he seems quite capable, but still mostly a bit of a jerk. The girls are all pretty good with them being OP, but also completely inept makes for funny situations.
The art and animation were pretty good with some great moments and some a bit off. 7/10
Vinland Saga episode 21 Sword Art Online Alicization: War of The Underworld episodes 3-8
Took SAO off hold to catch-up again. I don't think I would've enjoyed it weekly as it all gets a bit samey towards where I am now.
Havent watched any anime over the last week. Been doing a big binge of Billions. Watched seasons 2&3 and currently on 4. It's a seriously entertaining show. So much drama, plotting, backstabbing and the like. Everyone on the show has shades of villain in them as they vie to be the most rich and/or powerful.
It's also the first if these big American dramas ive seen to introduce a non-binary main character and the show does well to give them storylines that revolve around their ability as a money maker over their gender identity though as you can imagine in this super alpha world it does come up.
Konosuba s2 eps 1-4
Seems a little better.
Events in episode 2 completely overwrites the story of the OVA from s1 as it's presented as the first time we meet Yunyun even though we met her for the first time in the OVA! It even has a very similar scene taking place, but with a different outcome.
Beastars episodes 1-3
Sad that this show is getting buried in Netflix jail because it's much better than I was expecting. Studio Orange continues to do great CGI animation and the story and characters are interesting to watch.
