Soul - dropped because
the lionisation of Mother Theresa had me constantly rolling my eyes.

Mai Mai Miracle - I'll admit that I never managed to finish this subbed as it meanders somewhat BUT the dub was very good so I watched the whole thing dubbed last night and really enjoyed it a lot :)

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood OVA Collection and 4 panel comic theatre - I actually wish there were more OVAs as the FMA universe and characters could easily support further delving into :)

Yawara ep12

Lupin III: Part VI ep1

Some slightly iffy 3D work aside, Part 6 is off to a very strong start. I am surprised that they seem to have modelled Sherlock Holmes on the Robert Downey Jr. incarnation though, given Benedict Cumberbatch’s apparent popularity in Japan.

Oh boy this was so much fun. Such a silly premise but managed to be really funny and the character dynamics were really entertaining.

Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Anemone rewatch
These films are bloody good. I know people dont like them but you're wrong. The Hi Evo films are incredible. I cannot wait for the third one.

Tsukimonogatari rewatch
Even though I must have seen this before I couldnt remember a single thing, even while watching. Really enjoyed it though. The show has a great capacity to mix things up whilst retaining its core elements that make it monogatari.

Owarimonogatari volume 1 rewatch
The first 2 episodes set in the classroom are so good. How 2 people talking in a locked room can be that engaging is amhazing! As the episodes progress it turns into the heaviest story yet but also one of the most satisfying. Maybe because it shifts into more of a mystery story which I'm totally down for.

Owarimonogatari volume 2 rewatch
The final parts of season 2s puzzle are put in place. Its quite remarkable to see these stories come together and fit in their places.

Koyomimonogatari
Yay more Oshino! Though not enough! Anyways this was like a little palate cleanser before the final course. Little mini episodes with little stories. AND THEN THAT FINAL EPISODE HAPPENS!!!!!

Owarimonogatari volume 3
Wow, just wow. What a goddamned masterpiece. How a show as stupid and at times plain wrong as this also has the gall to be plain brilliant is astonishing. I actually cried during the last episode...something must be wrong with me.

Zoku Owarimonogatri
What a fun epilogue to the saga of Koyomi Araragi and quite heartfelt in its final moments. Managed to throw in some surprises and the one thing bugging me throughout (where was Senjogahara) was very nicely dealt with at the end and made perfect sense.

Monogatri as a whole has been well worth the ride.

Hokuto no Ken 2 - Episodes 33 - 43 [Final]

A great end to the series, I've really enjoyed watching it. It's been an interesting watch as the general discourse I have seen on HnK2 is that it is the poor relation to the first series but I think it's every bit as good (and in some ways better) that the first series.

An interesting short film from one of my favourite directors. Definitely a good contender for the podcast.

YU-Sibu (I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job) - full series. I enjoyed this, although it did veer off about halfway through to a different storyline. Started our as our hero working in a small business, when a big competitor opened up nearby, and was gearing up to finding out who was behind the chain store, when suddenly his apprentice (daughter of the defunct demon king) is kidnapped and they have to go off and save her. Bit too much fan-service, but on the whole, I thought it was a fun series that was well worth the discount price I paid for it last week.

Tamako Market - this was an entertaining series about a young girl (don't think her age was precisely determined, but I'd guess around 15-16) living in a mochi shop in a street market (mall-like shopping strip that is fairly common in Japanese cities), her school friends and the people living and working in the market. All very innocent and fluffy stuff, apart from that crazy talking bird (who can receive video calls and project movies from his eyes!?). Probably for a younger (and less cynical) audience than me, but I'm glad I watched. And I'll probably be watching the sequel (Tamako Love Story) tomorrow.

The Heike Story ep 4
Apparently it helps to know the history of the period to understand this better. Some of it is fine and then it seemingly just skips ahead to something else and it leaves you scratching your head. Like why did Shigemori suddenly wish he would die and then does? I assume the latter is an historical fact and the former is poetic license, but it still doesn't really make sense.

Way of the Househusband ep6

Irina the Vampire Cosmonaut ep1-2

This seems surprisingly decent. The romance element is fairly ordinary, but the daffy 'let's put vampires in space to see if it's safe' premise is certainly novel, and I appreciate how fully they've committed to the mid-century USSR aesthetic, it gives the show a unique flavour.

I also did not know Ali Project were still going and still doing the same song every time.

Finished showing the last 4 episodes of The World is Still Beautiful to my mother last night. Then she picked out Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina and we watched the first three episodes of that, but she didn't like the episodic format, so we stopped that one. She then picked out The Irregular at Magic High School, and we watched the first four episodes before calling it for the night - so 11 episodes of anime last night!
