22/7 episodes 10-12 (End)
Quite the rough series but still pretty good with a fun cast and intriguing setup. Episode 7 is still the real highlight with its strong story and powerful direction from the relatively unknown Hirotaka Mori. Will have to keep an eye out for their next work

22/7: 8+3=? OVA
Introducing three new members. A fun extra

22/7: The Diary of Our Days episodes 1-8 (End)
A short series of vignettes by CloverWorks with character designer and animation director Yukiko Horiguchi. So disappointing that Horiguchi didn't return for the main series. Really nice designs and animation

Golden Kamuy Season 3 episode 5

Deca-Dence ep7-8

I like this enough that I'll finish it, but perhaps as a result of having watched a lot of it in a short space of time, I'm finding it a bit played out now. I think my overall opinion on it will depend a lot on how it concludes.
 

Kite

Thousand Master
Samurai Flamenco Episodes 1 - 11

Certainly the last couple episodes of the first part turned the show around with new characters introduced

Hellsing Ultimate episode 2 (Dropped)
Yeah I would rather watch Drifters. This series just doesn't interest me as much.

ID:INVADED episodes 1-4
Interesting concept for a crime series. Kenjiro Tsuda voicing the main character is Very Good

Kimisen, Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World episode 5 Mismis isn’t having a good time this week.

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear episode 5 Helping those in need.

Noblesse episode 5 Selfish.

My-HiME episodes 22-26 (Complete. Mai-HiME is a series that takes a more SoL/MOTW approach for its earlier episodes before becoming more serious and dark in tone, especially in the latter episodes as friendships and allegiances are frayed.

Whilst the first half wasn’t overly memorable the second half develops the storyline further though I thought it all ended in an underwhelming fashion- especially regarding how the characters just forgave each other fairly easily for some pretty horrific actions. Hopefully My-Otome offers something different.) 3/5

My-Otome episodes 18-26 & Specials
(Complete. My-Otome did end up offering something a bit different than its predecessor but also felt similar in how the tone shifted at a certain point with friendships becoming frayed in the process.

I liked some aspects of the series but factors like the villain being especially uninteresting, or a certain relationship which felt very wrong in the way it unfolded, made for another flawed viewing experience. Maybe the two OVA series’ can improve my overall thoughts on the franchise a bit.) 2.5/5

My-Otome Zwei
OVAs 1-4 (Complete. Set a year after the events of the series this tells a new story that sees new conflicts and falling - outs. It was a decent watch overall and I wish it had been a full series as it was more consistent in tone.) 3/5

My-Otome 0: S.ifr
OVAs 1-3 (Complete. A prequel OVA series that had a decent storyline though treaded familiar territory at times.) 3/5

Although it doesnt quite live up to the original show this sequel is nonetheless a good show. An interesting theme running through it (especially given current political day and age) whereby characters repeatedly double down on their position regardless of any evidence to the contrary. It can be a little frustrating at times but ultimately the shows ending redeems any flaws that were present earlier.

Having now watched all the current shows and films in the franchise I have to say I really like how E7 is willing to embrace weird and crazy stories. It makes the whole franchise so much more interesting. Amd I'm happy to say again that Hi Evo 1 is the best compilation film I've ever seen.
