Lupin III: Part I ep7-8 (English dub, rewatch)

Now hitting the Miyazaki/Takahata part of the series. It's not clear how much authority they had to make changes immediately, but there is definitely a marked difference between episodes 6 and 7, most obviously with Fujiko's character. It's almost like the roles have reversed, in that Fujiko is now the one with a well thought out plan to steal the macguffin, whereas Lupin is now the opportunist flying it by the seat of his pants and getting in her way.

The sea change continues into 8, (notably the first to show the gang operating as the full, familiar unit) with Lupin's motivation for screwing over Mr. Gold explicitly stated as 'teaching a lesson to someone who steals from the poor', a degree of altruism that would have seemed unlikely just a couple of episodes prior. Given Miyazaki's apparent leftist leanings as a young man, it's also quite amusing to see Jigen single handedly beating back a crew of fake riot police in hand-to-hand combat...

Fate/Grand Order Divine Realm of the Round Table: Camelot - Wandering; Agateram - I actually really enjoyed this after the reviews I had heard, it was pretty good (enjoying it more than Babylonia so far) maybe it’s because it’s quicker paced, less Mash and less Fujimaru 8/10

You see. The hate for the missing assassin was overblown. Glad you liked it.

My Dress-Up Darling ep 1
Seems like it could be a fun rom-com. Loner dude lacking in confidence meets enthusiastic popular gyaru girl who upon finding out he can sew asks him if he can make her cosplay outfits. He's a bit bland at the moment, but she's a real ball of energy.

Akebi's Sailor Uniform ep 1
Someone reeeeally wants a sailor uniform. She came of as a little brattish and spoiled, but, I suppose, she's only a first year in middle school. Not much else to go on in this episode apart from it's really pretty.

Yeah I’ve looked at reviews and yeah it’s mostly FGO players moaning at adaptation changes or pacing changes like yes it’s two 90 min films there will be changes. Or complaining that it doesn’t look good and I thought it looked really good and really nice probably HF just spoilt people but film 2 really does still excite me more.

Makes me glad I've never played any of the FGO games so I go into the animes/films blind and enjoy them for what they are.

Also I don't take notice of reviews, I watch things if I like the looks of it.

Honestly all of the adaptations have been very faithful, even the Studio Deen one. The problem is that western Fate fans are obnoxiously elite and ironically give their own franchise a bad name because of it.

I count myself as a fan who has seen the original source material and I am happy to say the VN is overrated. It's good but not "amazing perfectionism of story telling" as you might be led to believe.

Top mix of action and comedy with a very likable MC
Will you like it?

MC has the police looking for him? Check.
MC smokes? Check.
MC gets into fights and shoot outs? Check.
MC helps friends? Check.
MC helps out busty, scantily clad female characters? Double Check.

I'll watch this again.

Inuyasha season 1
Fun pre-modern isekei where the protagonist isn't completely OP and can also travel back home as and when. I enjoyed the character dynamics especially and none of the heros are completely heroic. It feels quite dated in many ways but if AL continue to release it I'll keep watching.

Is This Order A Rabbit? season 1
CGDCT in a cafe. Adorable and funny. Like really funny. Much funnier than it has any right being!

Dororo
Magnificent piece of tragic storytelling. The character dynamics and story were really interesting. Going into the last few episodes I had no idea how it was going to all play out.

Road Buster Bean Bandit ova
So much fun. Shame it's so short as it feels like the introduction to what could be a great story but I had a huge grin on my face for all if it. Hopefully the success of the crowdfunding will get an actual studio to back him and make something more substantial with these characters and for what little we got it looked and sounded fantastic.

Edit: So I just watched the Bean Bandit audio commentary (amusingly an hour long for a 12min film) and Sonoda states very clearly that his ambition is that this ova leads to a proper tv series so fingers crossed. It's a good, informative and funny commentary/episode discussion so if you get the OVA do check it out

Bit of a rhetorical statement.
I like sports anime and find it funny that I'll enjoy one that is based on sports I've no interest in. Baseball, Ping Pong, tennis.

But why am I enjoying Saki (first 10 in just a few days) when I have absolutely no idea on the scoring or playing rules? I honestly have not a clue what's going on.

I haven't seen Saki but there's something naturally engrossing about competition and how effortlessly it leads to high stakes drama. I have no interest in volleyball and yet Haikyu is one of the most exciting shows I've ever watched!
