This stage sees Takumi coming back from a loss and being undecided about his future as a racer. It’s a solid film despite the romance subplot being the weakest element of the overall series so far. 4/5

VS Knight Lamune & 40 Fire - Episodes 24 - 26 [Final]

Fire comes to an entertaining and almost apocolyptic ending!!! It's been a good series that I have enjoyed a lot, it got somewhat generic during the VS level episodes but really picked up again for the final 7-8 episodes or so. It's been interesting to see in the immediate timeframe of Evangelion's airing how Eva's influence reached even Lamune with obvious homage's in the Kasier Fire mecha and the way the conclusion plays out which is very different to the previous anime.

VS Knight Lamune & 40 Fresh - Episodes 1 - 6 [Final]

So a rewatch of this to complete the franchise. I had the CPM disc and last watched it years ago and as much as I don't agree with everything Mike Tools says about Fresh he was right that it didn't make a lot of sense having not being able to watch any of the other anime in the franchise. Now having seen Fire and the rest it certainly does now make a lot of sense, I actually really enjoyed Fresh this time round, the second half builds up to a decent ending and it's still a lot of fun along the way.

Doomsday With My Dog ep1-2

Rather liked this, there’s something faintly Calvin & Hobbes-esque about the main character wandering around and having daft conversations with her remarkably sensible dog. The lack of animation is slightly disappointing though - even compared to Way of the Househusband, there‘s very little movement here, at least not beyond mouth-flaps.

Uncle From Another World ep3

I’m increasingly charmed by this; despite the scratchy, unflattering aesthetic suggesting something darker, it’s surprisingly relaxed and warm hearted.

I haven't watched anything in 2 weeks and I was already behind, so I've decided to drop some stuff I didn't particularly rate: Engage Kiss (apart from the action it's a bit dull and repetitive with boring plot), Teppen!!!!! (not really my style of comedy, plus they had to cut an episode, so a team missed their introduction) and Phantom of the Idol (amusing enough, but after Heroines another male idol group show is a bit too much). On the chopping block, because I haven't even got to the third episode yet!, is Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer (which will probably go) and The Maid I Hired Recently is Suspicious (episode 1 was OK).

So let's start the catch up with... A show I've already watched at least twice and also read the manga!:
Yuru Camp s1 e1 (dub)
The dub seemed alright, there's one character doing the squeaky voice thing (which really doesn't work in English for the vast majority of characters and especially none of these guys) in the intro bit, wasn't sure which character it was, but Rin and Nadeshiko seemed pretty good in the rest of the episode. The rest didn't get many lines in the episode, but seemed OK. Weirdly none had a squeaky voice, so maybe they decided to change it slightly and just left that bit in the intro or forgot to re-record. One thing I noticed is the slapstick violence between Nadeshiko and her sister seemed even more violent than I remember, maybe I was concentrating on the subs to not take it in fully! What I did remember was how chilled the soundtrack is, but it's a bit weird watching this comfy show set in Autumn/Winter in this heat.

Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer ep 3 (dropped)
Yeah, could be a good story, but the production is so poor. Also felt this episode rushed through a plotline that probably could have done with a bit more exploring. Also our male MC is a bit dour, although the female MC seems like a lot of fun. Another one that I might read at some point instead.

The Maid I Hired Recently is Suspicious ep 2
Forgot about the "humour" of the show. A shouta and/or his older maid getting embarrassed about romantic innuendo. Might give it one more, as it turns out I'm actually up to date as episode 3 was delayed.

Ha, not much of a catch up, but it's a start.

Classroom of the Elite 2nd Season episode 6 Problem child.

My Isekai Life: I Gained a Second Character Class and Became the Strongest Sage in the World! episode 7 Stalked.

Initial D: Legend 1- Awakening (Film), Initial D: Legend 2 - Racer (Film) & Initial D: Legend 3 - Dream (Film) These films do a reasonable job at recapping the events of the series but I’d recommends watching the stages in full if you’re a first time viewer. 3/5, 3.5/5, 3.5/5

Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory - I enjoyed that overall, especially the music and animation but you can feel it in your bones every time they change writers. Especially in the middle when there's a sudden increase in scenes where people run out of the room crying. Pretty good spin-off though.
