I’m quitting Heroing episode 8 Imp.

Tomodachi Game episode 8 Come back.

Fate/Kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA: Vow in the Snow (Film) This was an engaging film which built upon the backstory between Shirou and Miyu quite well. 4/5

Fate/Kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA- Licht Nameless Girl (Film)
This brought the story back to the present and delivered a decent narrative which lends itself to further continuation in the future. 3.5/5

Fireworks (Film)
Whilst the film offered some neat visuals the story and characters didn’t engage with me much - I may give this a rewatch eventually though to see if I appreciate it more. 2/5

Ghost in the Shell:SAC_2045 s2 eps 1-12 (dub)
I rewatched the last episode of the first season as a reminder as I remember there was a cliffhanger, and it jogged a few memories, but then they left that particular part of the plot dangling for a few episodes to focus on another character which got a better development than they got in the first part.
As with most of the various stories contained in this universe some of it made sense and some of it didn't, although I will say the final episode does go some way to explaining what happened. The one problem was that a lot of the plot was very reminiscent of earlier stuff especially Individual Eleven.
Most of the art and animation were as I remember from the first part with characters looking and occasionally moving stiffly, although during fight scenes this didn't seem to happen.
Same score as the first season, but will say it was slightly better:
7/10

Eps 7 & 8 of The Rising of the Shield Hero season 2...time for a rant not happy with the adaption of season 2. One the pacing is much too fast and second they have completely changed it when they get to the other world compared to the LN. At first its only Naofumi in the labyrinth with Kizuna. He then meets up with the others one after the other. The stuff at the dragon hourglass with Raphtalia being left behind doesn't happen. This whole arc needed to be more than 12 episode, ideally 24 like the 1st season rant over.

Spy x Family ep7

Ghastly Prince Enma: Burning Up ep8-9

I think Enpi is definitely the most entertaining character, it’s a shame they couldn’t have squeezed her into the serious version of the show. Her sole commitment to her own anarchic agenda and tendency to turn into a complete psychopath if she loses her face mask would have made her an interesting addition.

Sailor Moon Season 1 Episodes 28-34 (Viz uncut dub) - Still really good, will def finish it and watch all the other seasons eventually (I'm particularly looking forward to R as I'm a big Ikuhara fan, but Junichi Sato is often pretty dope too) :)

Patlabor Early Days OVA (subbed) (rewatch) - Finished Episode 7, I have seen these before years ago on the CPM DVD release but got a lot more out of them this time around, I was always a relatively "highbrow/arthouse" friendly anime viewer so I'm not sure what made me like these a lot more this time around - it might just be a matter of being more the age of the protagonists now? (Though I would have liked it far less if they spent their time hating on kids and teenagers as, speaking as a 33-year-old, I don't like it when adults have that kind of attitude.) But yeah this was cool, the character stuff is very well observed and it's about police but doesn't seem to condone police brutality, they actually behave like civil servants mostly (apart from Ohta. Don't be like Ohta lol).

Patlabor The Movie (Manga Entertainment dubbed) (rewatch) - Enjoyable and very well dubbed, even though the second Patlabor film is prob better from what I recall, still this was fun, and true to the characters I'd say :)

Hunter X Hunter (2011) (dubbed) - just finished Episode 18 this morning, a very good series, hopefully I'll manage to watch it all properly-ish this time :)

Kimagure Orange Road (subbed) - not sure where I've gotten to but I think I watched a few more episodes since the last time I mentioned it :)

Is the Order a Rabbit? Season 1 Episodes 1-4 (subbed) - This is super cute and very funny in places, I really like it a lot :)

Castle in the Sky (Streamline dub) (rewatch) - Not as good as the Disney dub due to some rather clunky acting and Cloris Leachman is much better as Dola than Rachel Vanowen but this did have some charm to it, was a worthwhile viewing experience as it is the way that many English speaking fans would have first experienced the film in the 80s and 90s. I will prob revisit it at some point but it is the weakest of the various Ghibli/Miyazaki dubs I've seen as compared with their Disney counterparts (in other words was more impressed by the pre-Disney dubs for Kiki, Totoro and Porco, and the two dubs for Lupin Cagliostro (I'm aware neither were produced by Disney, not seen the Grave of the Fireflies dubs yet, though I do know that neither of those were produced by Disney either). Tbf I had a fun time with this overall I just don't think it's great and it does have an element where part of the fun is a "so bad it's good" appeal which is not something I would say about any of the other pre-Disney Ghibli dubs I've seen (or the Disney dubs themselves, which I think are all of a very high standard) :)

Porco Rosso (JAL dub) (rewatch) - Actually a really good dub except the voice of that pirate who sounds like an OTT version of Bullwinkle the Moose, but mostly I'd say this is every bit as good as the Disney dub and I loved it, was a pleasure to watch :)

Millennium Actress (both the Manga UK/Village Productions and Eleven Arts/VSI English dub versions) (rewatch) - I really like both dubs for this film, the Eleven Arts is slightly better acted perhaps, but I think Manga UK's dub has a better, more nuanced script. Also enjoyed the cameraman sounding a bit like Dan Castanelleta in the Manga dub :D This film was a pleasure to watch, and
I found the ending and the conclusion she drew kinda relatable as someone who does want a romantic relationship, but due to being rather selective/picky (not saying that's bad it's just who I am and I respect myself and my reasons for it) has often gotten more out of things that didn't end up getting to the point of a romantic relationship, or stayed as admiration from afar to an extent, with guys who were crazy hot and lovey, than many of my extremely disappointing crummy actual relationships
😅

Not having Mark Hamill as the bad guy!

Haha tbf tho Muska's VA was the best performance in the Streamline dub, yes Mark Hamill is iconic but Jeff Winkless is pretty damn great I mean he voiced Count Magnus Lee in the older (Streamline) Vampire Hunter D dub so he knows how to play a villain to perfection too, honestly I think those two are evenly matched here even though the Streamline dub is mostly a bit lacking (though Sheeta's VA was decent too I thought). This may or may not be the perfect time to mention that I've never seen a whole Star Wars film and mostly know Mark Hamill for his excellent work voicing the Joker in the DCAU Batman animated series :)
