Tower of God ep1

Had this on in the background while I was drawing - not something I’d go to great lengths for, but seems like a solid fantasy fighting show.

Wave, Listen to Me! Ep2

This could well be my favourite thing this season, really enjoying it.

Kemono Friends episodes 9-12 End
Saving Studio Irodori's most famous work for last and it's clear why it was such a hit. Leaving Yaoyorozu's rough animation aside the series' strengths lie in it's fun characters and strong writing with a balance of edutainment, iyashikei and mystery. The soundtrack by Akiyuki Tateyama is as relaxing as his work on Laid-Back Camp and the OP is real catchy. Definitely a fun series and I really recommend Irodori's other works (Keifuku-san, Hentatsu and Kemurikusa). Their style is really interesting and I cannot wait for their next project. 8/10

Such a shame they never made a second season : )

Bought the Blu-Ray at MCM Scotland last year and finally got around to watching the movie this evening.
Honestly, a spectacular retelling of the original series. So excited to watch the next two films now.

Gankutsuou episode 4-6
Your Lie in April episode 4-6

Things are starting to heat up. The antagonists for Your Lie have finally showed up. Can't say it's unexpected since these kinds of shows always need some kind of shounen-esque rival to progress the plot.

A friend remembers the adventures he had with his friend in the early 20th century as detectives. Fairly interesting first case.

Stuff happened. Not sure if it'll last much longer.

Funnily enough, Your Lie in April actually is a shounen!

looks up its MAL listing

Oh yes, I see. That is a surprise. It's certainly a very tranquil kind of shounen. But looking back at its simplistic themes suitable for children, it makes more sense now. A lot of its platitudes feel like the kind of stuff shounen characters would spill out.

Fruits Basket 2nd Season episode 27 Future shock.

Princess Connect! Re: Dive episode 2 Sword and tsundere.

Woodpecker Detective’s Office episode 1 More mystery for the season.

You’re Under Arrest! episodes 47-51 & Special (Complete. Quite enjoyable albeit a bit repetitive and lacking a sub option on HiDIVE-the dub was grating in places.) 3.5/5

You’re Under Arrest! Fast & Furious
episodes 1-5

Tower of God - Episode 2
Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War S2 - Episode 1

I wasn't sure about the former after watching the pilot but this second episode has me interested. I don't know where it can go over the course of 13 episodes but so far I rather like everything except the art style and opening visuals.

As for Kaguya, the excellent quality of the first season continues, although I am disappointed that Funimation got this rather than CR as the subs are a fair bit worse. Anyhow, its one of my favourite romcom anime of the last year or so.

Yet again I'm watching another retro series. It's had a great start so far and I've heard a lot of praise for this series so I look forward to the rest. I usually stay away from series with more than 100 episodes but I'll make an exception here.

I'm loving how random my watchlist is at the moment

I've been meaning to get to this. I've seen the two movies, but didn't manage to get into the series. The TV series is on my watchlist after I've finished Gankusuou and Your Lie in April. Hope we'll both enjoy this. I've heard a lot of praise too. This is possibly the last of the highly acclaimed anime classic I've yet to watch, having seen Cowboy Bebop and Mushishi myself.

Yeah, no. This can sod right off.

Kakushigoto ep1

This, on the other hand, is very sweet. It may go some way to filling the gap left by Barakamon,

Actually Sentai only has the rights to Fast & Furious-the originial series was licensed by Animeigo and since they lost the rights about 9 years ago it hasn't been re-licensed.

Hmm curious as to how HiDIVE ended up with the original series then.

One Piece ep397-421 (col 17) rewatch
Gave this a rewatch before starting new episodes. Eps 404 and 405 are 2 of the best I've seen. The more fluid animation really emphasises the panic and hopelessness the cew face. And the Amazon arc that follows is a lot of fun.

One Piece ep422-516 (col18-21)
Really great few arcs here. Old favs return. New faces join in and it gets real epic with some real emotional scenes too. Enjoyed it a lot and marks a really good spot to leave OP for a while and let the collection releases get ahead.
