Oh, hello, here are the spring anime I watched (and are completed) along with a comment and a somewhat forced score that I'll probably rethink tomorrow, thanks!

The 1 "new" film I watched:

Pompo: The Cinéphile [EN Audio] - A really fun and entertaining romp that provided some really excellent visuals, certainly not a complicated film but gives an energetic run through of this creative process (in a fairly ridiculous manner) as told. Comes together very nicely despite the short length of the film. 8/10

The seasonal anime that are done:

Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 Season 2 [EN Audio] - I'm still not sure what to make of this season (and the overarching story) and really the show in general. It is certainly a step down from this shows predecessor. The dub, however, remains in excellent shape (though, worth noting that Ishikawa has been recast) and the animation seems slightly improved. 6/10

Kaguya-sama Love is War Season 3 [JP Audio] - another good season and, while I knew what was coming for this season, am pleased how it turned out. Am glad it seems this won't be all too. 8/10

Tiger and Bunny 2 Part 1 [EN Audio] - A new season with good character moments, returning faces and reminded me why I really like this show... and yet it still feels like a disappointment, particularly the overarching plot this half. Will have to see how the second half of this plays out. The English dub remains strong despite some recasts (Rock Bison and Dragon Kid). 7/10

Ultraman Season 2 [EN Audio] - A better, more direct season with improved animation and is decently fun. However, there's more to be done as the short length contributes to the feeling this is mostly an intro for Taro and setup for the real ending. 6/10


There are 4 other show that I'm watching but aren't currently done at the moment, those being: Heroines run the Show, Love after World Domination, Spy x Family [all EN Audio] and Shikimori's not Just a Cutie [JP Audio]. Those should be done in under 2 weeks.

Watching Ya Boy Kongming, not that into it so far, I wish main girl would just sing in Japanese rather than broken English, but it's fine overall.

Haven't finished last season yet, but I thought that I'd watch some of the Summer offerings.
Phantom of the Idol ep 1
There's a male idol group with 2 members and a girl as our 3 leads, just like Heroines last season, but that's as far as the similarities go. This seems it'll be comedy focused and everything on the production side doesn't quite reach the same standard either.

Luminous Witches ep 1
Only in anime can you get cute witches from a variety of countries who can't fight in the battle against an alien invasion, for various reasons, join together to form an idol group all set in alternative 40's London! Art is very good and the ED which will be the OP was nice, so the songs will be good.
Digging a little deeper seems it's a spin off of the Strike Witches franchise, which I haven't seen, but I don't think will be a problem story wise.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 256 Ramen recipes.

League of Nations Air Force Aviation Magic Band Luminous Witches episode 1
This could be a neat spin-off series.

Yurui Deco episode 1 This looks very stylised so far. Hopefully the story will be as interesting.

Great Teacher Onizuka episodes 17-37

Got home from a weekend away to find Cat Planet Cuties waiting for me (which I forgot I had ordered). Was expecting the usual living together with sexy alien girls harem type show, so was very surprised at the amount of action (and the ridiculous number of secret societies). At the halfway point of the series and still enjoying it, although it's definitely not one for dog lovers is it?
