Take your heart.
Episodes seem a little tighter, maybe because this part of the show was originally released as half length episodes, apart from the finale.

BOFURI ep 7
Grinding and breaking the game even more than they already have.
Maple's quest in this episode gives me RPG flashbacks:
NPC: We need a certain item.
Player: You mean this thing that I've had in my inventory for hours and was costing me Carry Weight because I couldn't drop it or sell it?
NPC: Thanks, that must have been really hard to find!
Player: Not really I was just wandering past a cave and thought I'd see what I could find 😄

No Guns Life ep 12 (complete)
Finally got round to finishing this. I must have been working when it came out and just kept thinking to myself "I can't be arsed to watch it". I think because dispite seeming it might be quite cool the stand alone episodes did little to move the overall plot, which in itself was a little weird. Big corporation loses asset and wants it back, but they know where he is and Juzo just keeps taking other jobs instead of going into hiding or taking the fight to them.
The art was cool apart from the comedy reaction stuff with the basic character designs (a La FMA) which are so out of place in a relatively serious show.
Hopefully the second part will be better.
6/10

Still need to finish Babylon, but those watching it seemed disappointed in the remaining episodes.

Emiya Family Cooking ep3-4

The problem with watching this while eating something is that whatever you're having inevitably pails in comparison to whatever the characters are eating on screen. It's like seeing those ridiculous juicy steaks they always used to have in Tom and Jerry.

Re:Creators ep5-6

The exposition is a bit heavy going at times, but still enjoying this. It's a bit like how I imagine Gate might have been, if it weren't utter rubbish.

No Guns Life ep 12 (complete)
Really wanted to love that show, the first episode had so much promise, but I had very similar feelings about it in the end. It just feels like a missed opportunity.

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! episode 7

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Memory Snow
Really enjoyed this break from the usual suffering. Serves as a nice break between arcs when viewed alongside the Director's Cut with a small preview of characters and events from the coming episodes. Characters were all great as usual and worked well with the genre switch to comedy leading to a lot of fun moments and even a neat reference to fellow Isekai Quartet member Konosuba. It's just a really nice change of pace to see the characters having fun for once. 9/10

Re:Zero Memory Snow
I didn't like the change in tone to it being more comedic. Maybe I'm just sadistic but I enjoy their suffering more :confused:

Animation X Paralympic: Who is Your Hero?
A series of 8 anime shorts about Para-sports commissioned by NHK.
They were all very good with a different feel to each. A few introduced real world athletes, while a few concentrated fictional characters overcoming their condition and others just introduced the sport. Some were comedic and others had romantic elements.
My favourite were the 2 with romantic elements, the Athletics one, which was also more of a musical piece, where an amputee girl meets a boy, the Badminton one with competitive childhood friends and of the others the "Murderball" one by Ashita no Joe co-creator Tetsuya Chiba. Least favourites were the ones that introduced individual athletes as they were both (Tennis and Cycling) quite straightforward, MC from relevant anime of said sport meets athlete and have a match/race. Might be of interest to fans of the anime/s, but there was no real story to them.
Not sure if there's more to come as the releases seem to have been sporadic over the last couple of years. There also appears to be no MAL entry, but I would give it a 7.

Just finished catching up with all of the MVM Monogatari releases now. But with no other releases on the horizon though I'm genuinely saddened as it has fast become one of my favorite shows. Of course I knew this day would come, I guess I could just bite the bullet and import the rest but anyone that know's my opinion on AoA will know why I am reluctant.

Don't mind me just lamenting my fate of having reached this point.
