Pride of Orange ep 1
Cute Girls Do Cute Ice Hockey (And Idol, apparently!) Things or CGDCIHAIT for short. Apparently it's from a mobile game, so think Uma Musume, only with regular cute girl designs and Ice Hockey. Seems from the opening we know where the story is going to go, so I don't think it's going to be as good as Uma Musume.


Thousand Master
Honey and Clover Episodes 1-5 (rewatch, dubbed) - I love this show so much really happy to have it in 1080p on Blu-ray to watch and the dub is pretty good (watched subbed the first time) :)
Chihayafuru Season 2 Episodes 1-9 (dubbed) - not my fave josei or sports series but still a very good show and I'm glad to spend more time with the characters :)
Lupin The Third: The First (dubbed) - Enjoyable caper with the gang, tbh I haven't seen much Lupin stuff outside of The Castle of Cagliostro and I'm not sure I really want to, but this was fun :)
Corpse Bride (rewatch) - Really enjoyed seeing this again now I have the Blu-ray, the score was gorgeous as well as the songs :)
Okko's Inn (dubbed) - Damn, this was really good. I had seen numerous people on here say it was really good and not to assume it would be too kiddy but yeah it was great and the English dub was super well done as well. Little nuances in the animation and writing that I loved :)
Ever After: A Cinderella Story (rewatch) - Enjoyable take on Cinderella with Drew Barrymore as the lead, I saw this quite a bit as a kid was nice to watch it again :)

Dragon Knight
Hokuto no Ken 2 - Episodes 24 - 27

AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline - Episode 1

There's good pedigree behind, Nobuyoshi Habara also directed Fafner which is another great mecha series and I'm happy it's got 2 cours. This was a solid first episode and I'm keen to watch more.

Twinkle Heart

A simple and fun OVA from Seiji Okuda (Dancouga), it was meant to have more episodes but never got beyond the first episode.

Transformers: The Movie (Blu-ray)

Transformers seem be quite prominent at the moment in many of my anime interactions on social media and I've seen quite a bit about the movie recently as well so felt like a good time to revisit the movie having not seen it for a few years. It's basic stuff and I'm a bit nostalgic for it ( I was 10 when I went to the cinema to see it in 1986) but it still has so many great action scenes and characters that I like along with awesome music and amazing animation that I continue to really enjoy watching the movie.

I picked up both of these titles on Blu-ray just a few months ago. I've not watched Arcadia of my Youth yet but I am a huge space opera fan so I can't wait to get into it, especially after your review. I have seen the Harlock 3D CGI movie and really enjoyed that. Goshogun I've seen streaming a few years ago and I thought it was really good. I knew it was related to the TV series, but I also knew I wouldn't be interested in the series at all because of the mecha. I liked Time Etranger so much because of the lack of any mecha in it!

You'll really like Arcadia of my Youth :). I can understand not watching GoShogun because of the mecha but it does help flesh out some of the character motivations in Time Etranger.

SAKUGAN episode 1 Spat.

The Aquatope on White Sand episode 14 New tour.

31 Days of Halloween 2021! Day VI: Beyond Re-Animator (Film)

Lupin III: Part V
episodes 13-24 (Complete. An energetic series for the character which incorporated a lot of modern technologically-driven ideas into the story alongside some political intrigue and more familiar cat-and-mouse scenarios.) 4/5

Sakugan ep 1
Going underground.
Could be interesting. The main characters haven't grabbed me yet.

Platinum End ep 1
A Shinigami Angel gives a young man powers to kill/control people through the use of a Death Note Angel Arrows! LOL I thought this was giving me strong Death Note vibes, turns out the manga is written (and drawn) by the same people. The entry for the manga on MAL is over 1.5 points down on Death Note though, so not holding up much hope for the anime.

Yuki Yuna is a Hero s3 e1
A fun episode which reminded me of the first episode in the first season, but seems the fun times won't last, again.

Taisho Otome Fairy Tale ep 1
Arranged marriage and the age of the girl might make a few queasy, but seems fairly wholesome apart from the misunderstanding gag where the older male MC (17) thinks the 14 year old female means "having sex" by saying "can we sleep together"! Hopefully it steers clear of that sort of humour going forward.


Student Council President
Platinum End: episode 1 Revelation.

Sakugan: episode. 1 interesting.

Waccha Primagi!: episode 1 Cute.

Let’s Make a Mug Too 2 episode 2 Back then.

Selection Project episode 2 Getting in.

Taisho Otome Fairy Tale episode 1 Differing circumstances.

31 Days of Halloween 2021! Day VII: The New York Ripper (Film)

Lupin III: Goodbye Partner (Special)
A story which sees friction in the gang as Jigen seemingly betrays his longtime partner. 3.5/5

Lupin III: The First (Film)
The CGI here worked nicely for the Lupin series and the story was solid too. This also concludes my Lupin marathon as I wait for Part VI to air. 3.5/5

86 EIGHTY-SIX Part 2 episode 2 Socialise.

Lupin III: Part VI episode 0 I’m looking forward to watching the series having recently watched through numerous specials and Part V.

MUTEKING THE Dancing HERO episode 2 Something new.

My Senpai is Annoying episode 1 Kindness.

The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! episode 10 Stalk.

World Trigger 3rd Season episode 1 a nice return for the series.

Professor Irony

My Senpai is Annoying ep1

Ganbare, Doukichan ep1

The art for this is cute, but I think it's not one for me. Maybe it works better as a 4-koma, but even at 6 minutes, it doesn't feel like there's much to it.

Lupin III: Part VI ep0

It's nice that they went to the trouble of giving Kiyoshi Kobayashi a little send off before he steps down as Jigen, but I think it feels like this was the work of the team behind the TV specials, rather than the mainline series - the animation is quite rough at times, particularly in the first half.


Flame Haze
My Senpai is Annoying ep 1
Seems like it'll be a fun romance show. Can't say the senpai comes off as annoying at all though, just a big softy.
Doga Kobo killing it in the OP game again, look forward to seeing the ED next episode.

Mieruko-chan ep 2

Heike Story ep 2
Limited choice.


Bofuri I Don't Want To Get Hurt So I'll Max Out My Defence
Ok this was a delightful and charming series. Really fun story and easily likeable group of characters.

What If...?
Another wild ride from Marvel on Disney+. The quality Marvel are just pumping out of late is just absurd.

Nekomonogatari (White) rewatch
Feels like another step up in animation and for once Araragi isnt the narrator which is a good switch up for the series to make.

Kabukimonogatari rewatch
Really great story. I remember being disappointed it didnt end in a huge fight the first time round but this time I really appreciated the way the whole thing was put together. Probably the best entry so far.

Otorimonogatari rewatch
Season 2 is great. Love the way it mixes up the established formula. Nadekos descent is pretty shocking and the way its left open for future consequence is also pretty refreshing.

Onimonogatari rewatch
Obviously its deliberate but it is interesting that Kabuki is labelled as a Hajikuji story but is really a Shinobu story and this one is labelled as a Shinobu story but is really a Hajikuji story. Easily the most emotionally investing story.

Koimonogatari rewatch
I'd completely forgotten how good the OP animation for this was! I totally forgot we get a Kaiki narrated story. Man this story is so good. Probably the new best entry so far.

Hanamonogatari rewatch
The basketballs all over the court episode is always one that's stood out for me. And being a Kanbaru story it's another big highlight.

All in all season 2 is a massive improvement over a good season 1. The art and animation of course but mostly the storytelling is just massively improved. Season 1 is basically random chat with previous girl, new girl gets into shenanigans, ultra violence, resolution. Whereas season 2 just seems so much more smartly written. It's also nice that other characters get to be narrators this time.

Finished my When They Cry: Higurashi rewatch. While it certainly has a couple flaws I still absolutely love this series. Great direction, memorable characters, and a fantastic score by Kenji Kawai.
