Kanon episodes 13-24: I think they sacked the subtitlers halfway though this set as suddenly Nayuki was Michelle or Ming Xue, Yuichi was anything from Yum Cha to Lord, and Shiori somehow became Violin! Spelling, typos and just wrong translations, yet it still packed an emotional punch. Must buy a decent copy. And I'll just warn you it's definitely a box of tissues job for the series. PS Maybe if the girls wore appropriate winter clothing, they wouldn't get sick so often.

I wish someone would release Kanon on BD in the US at least so I could import a reasonably priced copy of the show in HD (with dub and sub, I like both for this show) :)

More hilarious and ridiculous antics from the gang. It frequently had me laughing and was so silly and fun.

Well I liked it. I feel theres a weird intense gatekeeping going on from many people slating it. Faye and Jet were especially great. It has this cartoony very stylized look that gave me Sin City vibes that I really enjoyed. Its not perfect by any means but it's a lot of fun.

Lupin III: Part I ep1 (English dub)

The new dub seems on point. Looks like they’re sticking much closer to the Japanese script than they did with the dub for Part 2 though and I’m not sure how to feel about that - weird though it was, I’ll probably miss that goofy localisation.

Also a reminder that yes, Lupin really did defeat Scorpion by flooding the ladies’ toilet and that wasn’t just a strange fever dream I had once.

Ranma 1/2 - Episodes 6 - 18 (Blu-ray)

Ranma 1/2 hasn't lost any of its charm in the decade since I last saw it, it's still consistently funny and the care that goes into the way Ranma and Akane's relationship develops is beautiful. Plus with the episodes now playing in canonical order, the plot in the second half of this season does make more sense now.

Big Wars


I never watched this back in the 2000's as I was rather dismissive of it due to it's non-descript 70's sci-fi novel DVD artwork and the generally bad comments I read about it online at the time. But I felt I needed to watch it and I'm gutted I waited so long, it's a solid sci-fi war story, has some fantastic mechanical design and animation plus it steals all of it's sound effects from 80's Hollywood blockbusters. I really enjoyed it.

Plastic Little: Very good story and a fair amount of character development for a 45 minute film. I must add that it also has the best drawn breasts I have seen in anime. :) Someone put a lot of effort into lovingly crafting those short scenes.

Black Magic M-66: Very Terminator-esque tale of a pair of humanoid killing robots lost on a test run, accidentally loaded with a mission to kill the inventor's grand-daughter. Good action but I thought the end was way over the top (a bit like Terminator, what with surviving a number of killing points).

Louie the Rune Soldier 1-12: Good humour and an entertaining storyline from this classic anime, but the central character does grate after a while. It is obvious he has been over indulged by his foster parents (head of the magic academy and high priestess of the battle god) and only starts to think once he's tried all the dumb options. Either he'll get better by the end or the girls will bury him to his neck in the desert.

S'alright, maybe skewed a bit too serious from my memory of the original, although it's been quite a few years since I watched it (I searched this thread and I haven't noted it before, so over 4 and a half years at least) and though it is one of a handful of shows I've watched more than once the other time was nearly 10 years before that!
Faye definitely steals it from the boys in the banter department.

Komi Can’t Communicate ep4

Lupin III: Part VI ep6

Still not great, but I’ll give them credit for the ending - the two-parter was an interesting idea, even if it didn’t work that well in practice. I thought it was going to be a callback to Mamo the time-traveller from Part I.

Finished Victorian Romance Emma (dubbed) - really great series with a lot of effort put into the dub, and

I’m so relieved that Emma and William ended up together! I seriously thought they might not! Though tbf Hans was a perfectly decent guy too so it's not like I would have been devastated if Emma had fallen in love with him and found happiness with him instead.

I've watched a bit of other stuff recently but rn I'm reading manga more so I might just say what I've watched when I complete a series :)

Sakura Trick (subbed) Episodes 1-5 - this series is so cute so much kissing and adorableness OMG! 🥰

Dai-Guard (dubbed, rewatch) Episodes 1-2 - This has one of the best English dubs I've heard and is a great comedy, would def recommend people check it out if they haven't - I had the UK DVD singles and recently bought the UK complete series DVD boxset to save a bit of shelf space so as long as all the discs in this set work I might be selling off the singles for very cheap at some point if anyone is interested (I say "might" as I may just end up taking them to a charity shop) :)

Demon Slayer - Kimetsu no Yaiba (subbed, mostly a rewatch) Episodes 1-4 - I have seen most of Season 1 before except for the final four episodes of it, I tried watching it dubbed when I got the UK Collector's BD sets but while the dub is not bad, I rather prefer the sub in this case, so I have decided to rewatch the entire first season subbed, and based on that I will decide whether to keep or sell my season 1 sets, and whether to watch the movie and season 2. So far I am really enjoying this rewatch though, and I will also note that the picture quality for this release is excellent and I am very glad that they were able to use the superior Aniplex of America transfer :)

Amanchu Episodes 1-10 (subbed, partial rewatch) - I tried watching this before months ago and didn't really pay enough attention to it so I started over, and it was def worth it, it's a wonderful series and I love how it combines the talents of Junichi Sato and Kenichi Kasai to create an endlessly magical hybrid of everything each of the two does best, you can clearly see that it's by the same mangaka and director as Aria but you can also feel the Honey and Clover/Nodame Cantabile-style vibes :)

Louie the Rune soldier episodes 13-24: Well, by the end of the series everyone had learned a life lesson and matured a little bit ... apart from Louie, who end the series as he started, by punching his way to victory. I can only assume the Gods prefer dumb perseverance and brute force to logic and reason. Still, I did enjoy it. :)
