Chrome Shelled Regios
Decent show with some great action.

Tokyo Ghoul S
Great sequel film! Hope they continue these live action adaptations.

Relative Worlds
Stunning film. Some aspects of the story were a tad convenient but it was a great ride.

Star Blazers 2199
Epic warp animation! Really enjoyed this. Especially the way it told different types of stories. Ep 9 about 2 AI robots getting to know each other was a real highlight.

So along with @orgun I've been watching Spirit Hero Wataru (for the first time) for Retro Mecha Podcast along with Giant Gorg which I am rewatching simply because it's great. Finished all 45 eps of Wataru and I'm up to episode 15 of Gorg.

Hopefully I can find the time shortly to watch the sequel to the rather brilliant Megalobox shortly as I hear it too is pretty great.

Lupin III: Part 2 ep29-30

Starting to feel that the red jacket episodes so far fall into two camps: either they have a kind of internal logic and everything broadly makes sense for that universe, or it feels like they pulled random verbs and adjectives out of a bag and used the resulting sentence as the plot synopsis. Ep29 is definitely the latter, seeing Lupin apparently master the secret of levitation, before tangling with an evil doppleganger who tortures people using an electric shock machine linked to a toy piano. It's a bit too goofy for its own good, but it's certainly memorable...

Planetes ep 6

Love, Death and Robots 2
Automated Customer Service

A possible future where robots do literally everything for humans, just don't piss them off:
Listen, and understand. That vacubot is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
Quite funny in places. Art and animation were like the standard modern Western computer generated stuff, although the characters were more caricature like than normal humans.

Ice
Life is hard on an ice planet. Really unique art and the action-y bit was quite spectacular.

Pop Squad
Pretty thought provoking sci-fi, would you sacrifice having children if you could live forever. The setting was very Blade Runner, as was the MC's look, his job as cop meant "retiring" children instead of replicants! and the art and animation were very like the first Animatrix one except, being 20 years later, even more realistic than that was.

Snow in the Desert
Another one dealing with immortality, but in a different way. The setting is a mash-up between Mad Max (looks wise) and Tatooine (inhabitants wise, being an alien planet). The art was so close to realistic can it be called art in an animation sense any more? It was really hard to tell that the humanoids weren't actual humans (in make-up for the more alien looking ones).

The Tall Grass
What's in... The tall grass? Art wise the characters looked a bit like painted wood carvings of people, quite interesting and different after the last 2.

All Through the House
Santa claws.
Very Pixar like.

Life Hutch
Malfunction.
Back to the super realistic look.

The Drowned Giant
What the title says.
Based on the short by J. G. Ballard the MC describes what happens when a giant washes onto the shore, how people react and his own fascination with it. It felt quite morbid, but at the same time quite fascinating.
Again fairly realistic looking, but not to the same extent as Snow and Hatch.

And that's it, a lot shorter in terms of number of episodes. Maybe the virus affected things, but there is a third series on the way.
My favourite in terms of art was definitely Ice as it was so unique and in terms of story I would say Pop Squad.

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! (Japanese) - Episodes 6-12, OVA + Chuni-Shorts Rewatch

The last episode still hits. Watching it again, it’s quite the achievement they were able to balance the opposing tones the show has in the latter half.

This is actually the first time I’ve watched the Chuni-Shorts, they’re fun, bitesized gags that focus on specific characters. Tsuyuri’s one, The Sleeping After School Beauty was probably my favourite of the bunch as it gives a peek at what Tsuyuri thinks of the other club members.

I rewatched it to refresh myself for Heart Throb but I forgot how self contained and well concluded the show feels by the end of the last episode, I really don’t know where the second season could go from here.

Zoku Owarimonogatari (Japanese audio) - Episodes 1-6 (Completed)

This final arc of the Monogatari Final Season saga was longer than it should be, but honestly it felt like a proper closure to the series than Owarimonogatari Season 2 did (which is considered the end of the main story).

Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood episode 8 Don’t give up.

The Saint's Magic Power is Omnipotent episode 7 Befriend?

The Slime Diaries episode 7 Demon Lord diaries.

Invincible A solid series that did the Twist Villain plot point very well and sets up future seasons nicely. I did care a lot more about Nolan’s storyline than Mark’s teenage relationship woes though.

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ (Japanese) - Episodes 17-21

Think it’s finally starting to head more towards the more serious tone now, still some slapstick here and there but Crybaby Cecilia feels like the turning point. Can’t say I really like Elpeo Ple but… well I’ve already expressed that’s my general feeling to most of the new characters really. Judau, Elle, Iino and Roux are the most likeable of the new core characters. In terms of new antagonists, I guess Glemy Toto isn’t too bad.

Back Arrow has turned into a show that I quite look forward to each week!

Thunderbolt Fantasy - Episode 7

A Wind Named Amnesia


I last watched this over 20 years ago on VHS, I really liked it back in the day and it holds up pretty well and I still think it's got a decent premise and enjoyed watching it again

Arei no Kagami

After reading the recent Leiji Matsumoto book, I keen to dig into more of his work so watched this rather short but very interesting sci-fi tale.

Down Load

Another experimental(ish) OVA from Rintaro, plays out in a very similar way to Take The X Train but far more of a straight forward sci-fi story.

Future Police Urashiman - Episode 1

I've had a fansub of this for about 17 years but keep putting it off but promised myself that I would start it this year! There's a HD Fansub available now so upgraded and made a start.

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (Japanese audio) - Episodes 41-49 (Completed)

I really watch to rewatch Gundam Wing, I've seen it several times and quite like it despite it's flaws and a nostaglic part of me wants to revisit it again.

Star Blazers 2199

I hear so much good stuff about this show, had the BD for a while now so must get to it at some point soon.

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ (Japanese) - Episodes 17-21

It gets much better in the second half IMHO.
