Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan episode 11 Wind your neck in.

Love Live! Superstar!! episode 7 Student Council.

Kokoro Connect episodes 9-13 & OVAs (Complete. Whilst the heartseed happenings felt overused and undercooked at times the characters and their interactions were mostly solid enough for story purposes, though I wasn’t as engaged with the OVA storytelling.) 3.5/5

KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! (Rewatch)
episodes 1-3

I'm Standing on a Million Lives Season 2 (Japanese audio) - Episodes 1-9 (13-21)

Despite it's terrible production quality, this series is actually pretty good in terms of storytelling and character development of the main protagonist, at least for the first half's story arc which was based on the manga. The second half on paper sounds interesting but there's a lot of stupid decisions throughout, and after looking into it, it turns out that this arc is adapting a 'what if' scenario from a recent light novel.

Other than that, the way the isekai element works in this series I give props for because it's also heart-breaking (for those don't plan to watch it and am curious, basically the isekai world is on a time limit in which they have to finish a quest in order to be sent back to their own world otherwise they die. Each time the quest is completed, they return to their world but will eventually be forced to go back at some point though a new team member will join them - however by the time they are summoned back into the isekai world, time has passed at a rapid rate so anyone they've met in the isekai world before would have aged which makes for some depressing moments).

So yeah, the first half is like a solid 8/10 while the second half is an average 5/10.

Flame Haze
Night World eps 1-3 (ONA)
A series of 3 shorts about dealing with sad/dark thoughts about challenges in life, featuring songs by Aimer.
The first is about the first experience by a child of death, the second about the possibility of losing a friend in high school, and the third about finding direction in adulthood.

Handa-kun ep 1

The Duke of Death and His Maid ep 11
Clue.

The Case Study of Vanitas ep 11
Date. The flip between the fun bits and the serious stuff is still on the jarring side, especially compared to other shows that have done it, I think in this case the fun stuff is wacky/slapstick/silly and the serious stuff goes quite dark where as in other shows there isn't as wider gap between the 2.

The Dungeon of Black Company ep 10
Ill.

Kageki Shoujo!! ep 11
Auditions.

How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom (Japanese audio) - Episodes 1-4

Another isekai, but much like Dungeon of Black Company this was a series that I also own the first few volumes of the source material but not yet read lol. That being said, I am very much enjoying this series and I'm hoping it's adapting the light novels well as it could have potential to get multiple seasons if done right. The artstyle is the only issue I have as it's not the same as the novels but the production is done well enough with those rather intriguing camera work and pace.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 (Japanese audio) - Episodes 13-19 (37-43)

Slime returns to the main series with its second half of Season 2. This cour is an interesting gamble because as much as I like the conversations that go on throughout this Isekai series, half of this cour is literally just sitting down and talking for what could have been sorted in a few episodes. In other words, it overstays its welcome by bad pacing.

My guess with the pacing issues is down to (according to various users) the anime adaptation following the manga adaptation rather than the light novels.
