Violet Evergarden - Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll - (dub)
Another story from this franchise that tugs at the heart strings, maybe not quite up there with the best episodes from the series, but certainly better than most. The plot was a bit disjointed though and maybe could have been better in a different order or by interweaving the 2 strands of the story together instead of separate parts which made it feel a bit like episodes stitched together.
7/10

KONOSUBA: Legend of Crimson

An explosive trip to Megumin's home village. Some funny moments and good action, but not quite up to the standard of the second season. Sort of felt a bit rushed with the big bad, so could have spent a little more time with the latest of the Demon King's generals.
7/10

Shachibato! President, It's Time for Battle!
ep 1
Doh! Didn't mean to watch this. I got it mixed up with another show 🤦‍♂️
Was OK though so might keep it up. A comedy about someone with little to no experience thrust into the role of leading an adventure team in a fantasy world.

Gleipnir ep 1
Very intriguing indeed. Little bit of an introduction to our MC and another key figure also appears about halfway through, which reveals our MC's secret, but the bigger picture is shrouded in mystery for now.

Tokyo Ghoul re
Really good. Having not read the manga I was able to really enjoy this series without expectations. It's infinitely better than root A and gives the show a nice ending (an actual ending! Something previous seasons of TG forgot to include)

Freezing Season 1
Long time since I watched it. Its darker and more serious than I remembered, especially for a boobs out, girls fighting show.

Brass Eye Decline and Special
Excellent end to the series. The special really is the best episode.

I want to eat your pancreas
Nice to see this in English, previously only watched it in Spanish. Incredible movie! Sad but beautiful.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (English Dub) Episode 23

In/Spectre (English Dub) Episode 6

Sword Art Online Alicization: War of Underworld (English Dub) Episode 12 (Complete... for now.)

A Certain Scientific Railgun T Episode 10 A short-lived friendship.

Arte Episode 1 Looks like this might be an interesting watch.

Ascendance of a Bookworm 2nd Season Episode 15 Dealt a bad hand.

Gleipnir Episode 1 Intriguing start.

Infinite Dendrogram Episode 12 Last resort.

Isekai Quartet 2 Episode 12 (Complete. Another fun season. It was a shame that the Shield Hero additions weren't involved more. Looking forward to the sequel. I'm hope slime gets introduced next.) 3.5/5

My Hero Academia Season 4 Episode 25 Burning ambitions and Foreboding dreams. (Complete. Another solid season and imo definitely the best one so far in terms of the fighting and animation. I can't wait to see what Season 5 has in store.) 4/5

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Episode 1 Seems decent enough so far.

Plunderer Episode 12

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- [Director’s Cut] Episode 13 The Subaru-Emilia scene got me (again) with the feels. (Complete. Still one of the best Isekai's in recent years that was made even better with the additional content. Looking forward to Season 2.) 4.5/5

Shachibato! President, It's Time for Battle! Episode 1 Looks OK from the get go, but will have to see where it goes from here.

Tamayomi: The Baseball Girls Episode 1 Seems like this will be another enjoyable sports series.

The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me? Episode 1 Not bad, but not great either. 3 episode rule for this one.

Tower of God Episode 1 A very interesting start.

Tsugu Tsugumomo Episode 1 So far so good. This should be another fun season.

Nisemonogatari [Rewatch] episodes 8-11 End
Since Tomoyuki Itamura took over as director, Nisemonogatari definitely feels less busy than Tatsuya Oishi's work on Bakemonogatari and feels much better for it. The eccentricity of Bakemonogatari's adaptation was good for setting up the tone for the franchise but often felt like it was trying too hard. Itamura strikes a good balance here. While overall a better series with one of my favourite themes so far there were moments mainly in the second half where it goes too far with it's siscon jokes that were pretty awkward to watch. When it doesn't focus on the Fire Sisters the series provides some great moments with other characters who aren't the main focus like Hitagi and Shinobu. 7/10

Decided to separate them by arcs each with their own score. [Re] designates a rewatch

Sing Yesterday For Me ep1

I liked this, but I'm not sure how long I'm likely to stick with it - the manic pixie dream girl alarm is ringing quite hard. Great looking show though.

Much better than season 1. Having a proper story run throughout the series really worked well here and made for a more dramatic and exciting show. I can see the middle arc being quite upsetting for some what with it dealing with the sexual abuse Satellizer suffers at the hands of her half brother. I think it's mostly handled pretty well and it was good the brother didnt get to die but had to live and face his sins though I felt it a bit uncomfortable that they seemed a bit too OK afterwards for my liking.

Shironeko Project ZERO Cronicle ep 1
Seems like it'll be a bit of a generic fantasy show. There's 2 sides to the world, dark and light, but the balance is starting tip too far in one direction, it's up 2 people one boy and one girl from either side to bring back the balance. It seemed to take itself far too seriously, but also have stupid plot points which were unintentionally funny. It's also a game adaptation which don't have the best track record, especially those with an existing plot. On the 3 episodes pile.

Princess Connect! Re: Dive ep 1
Another one not on my initial list of shows, but I thought I'd watch it while waiting for another show to appear. Similar to the other one yesterday the MC seems to be standing in for what would be the player in a fantasy world, as this is another game adaptation, but of one with little plot so the makers of the anime have free rein on the story which can work well, see Uma Musume. Definitely funnier than President... Battle so far, one of the side characters is very reminiscent of the girls from KONOSUBA, in that she's kick-ass in a fight, but a bit of a ditz otherwise. Seems from the ED the MC will end up with quite the harem. Might keep it up.

Fruits Basket s2 e1
Not the best of episodes as there's a heavy presence of the Yuki fan club, at least they're a bit more mellow than in the original adap.

Fruits Basket 2nd Season episode 26 The fan club aside I’m happy to see this return.

Dropkick on my Devil!! Dash episodes 1-11 (Complete? So I’m not sure if this is the entire season or not but I’m going on the assumption that CR have indeed uploaded all of season 2. This was very fun throughout and I think stronger than the first and I liked the new additions to the cast.) 3.5/5

Princess Connect! Re: Dive
episode 1 I hear the director for this also did Konosuba so I’m hoping they can do a good job with the source material provided.

Wolf’s Rain episodes 15-18 (skimmed-through due to being Recap).

Blood+ episodes 45 and 46
Monogatari Series: Second Season episodes 20-22

Almost done with these two, then it's on to Gankutsuou and Your Lie in April.

Blood+ is better than I expected; not just a typical vampire anime.
Monogatari SS episode 20 broke me. I didn't see that coming at all and haven't cried that hard watching an anime for a long time since Clannad.

CGDCT with fishing by Doga Kobo, nuf said. Comparing it to last seasons CGDCT show from them, Asteroid in Love, I would say funnier, with less infotainment (although I might still learn a thing or 2).
