Dropkick On My Devil!! X episode 12 Beat the heat. (Complete. Another enjoyable season - maybe one day the series will actually get a home media release in the West.) 3.5/5

Love Live! Superstar!! 2nd Season
episode 9 Skill difference.

Overlord IV episode 51 Preserve.

Tokyo Mew Mew New~♡ episode 12 Clearing the sky. (Complete. As far as remakes go this left me with similar feelings to that of the original series. This is getting a second season in 2023 which I will check out as it airs.) 3/5

Vermeil in Gold ~A Magician Pushes Through the Magical World With the Strongest Disaster~
episode 12 Doing what’s best. (Complete. Though this had its strengths I felt the ending was a bit flat, as were the antagonists.) 3/5

Dropkick on My Devil!! X Episode 12 (Complete. Another enjoyable outing. Like others, I'm also hopeful of a Blu-ray release here in the West.) 3.5/5

Overlord IV Episode 12 Flash freeze.

Tokyo Mew Mew New~♡ Episode 12 (Complete. Having watched the orignal series many years ago and now having finished the remake, this imo just felt like a copy and paste with a fresh coat of paint. With season 2 coming next year I'll also be checking it out.) 3/5

Vermeil  in Gold ~A Magician Pushes Through the Magical World With the Strongest Disaster~
Episode 12 (Complete. A decent fantasy series overall with a interesting concept at the core.) 3/5

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners (Japanese audio) - Episodes 1-6

Going to attempt to delve into some of the newer anime. Heard this new Trigger series was solid so I watched the first 6 episodes today, and it's really great. The music is top-notch (though it does seem to have borrowed music from the game itself, but I did recognise HEALTH of Max Payne 3 fame) and the animation has some unique designs, especially with the 6th episode.

I am going the subbed route which can be hard to read at first due to the on-screen text being quick and having Dolby Vision on meant the subtitles are more grey than white, but overall I'm really enjoying the series and hopefully it sticks the landing.

Spy x Family - Episode 6 - 12

So glad I finally got back to this as I enjoyed the first three episodes a lot when it started airing but as I always do, I start a billion shows each season and I get behind but at the same time, it was nice to be able to binge the majority of it, not having to wait each week for the new episode... which I'll be having to do next season now with Part 2 😂

The show itself though made me literally laugh out loud and it was so wholesome as well, Anya is to precious, enjoyed every moment of it, 10 / 10 for me personally.

Just got back from the cinema where I saw Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Though my partner regularly watches anime with me she hasn't watched any Gundam previously (well she's seen the odd scene when I've been watching it) and she really liked it too. In my opinion it had a well told and meaningful story that massively expands on the original TV episode and I really enjoyed some of the character moments with the white base crew. Looked lovely too.

It had a disappointing turn out in my local Cineworld though: usually anime movies are packed, particularly when they're very limited showings however there were a grand total of 5 people including my wife and I.

Smile of the Arsnotoria The Animation episode 12 Final fire. (Complete. A series that combines middling SoL antics with seemingly unrelated segments of a darker storyline - not a series I’m likely to rewatch.) 2.5/5

One Piece (Rewatch)
episodes 167-181

Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World (Uncensored) Episode 12 (Complete. A fantasy outing with softcore sex-scenes. This seasons entry for the - How is this not a "HENTAI" genre.) 3/5

My Stepmom's Daughter Is My Ex
Episode 12 (Complete. This to me just felt like a toned down carbon copy version of DomeKano with their identical similarities and story concept.) 2.5/5

Smile of the Arsnotoria the Animation
Episode 12 (Complete. A series that mixed typical SoL antics with unrelated scenes of a secondary darker story. I highly doubt I'll ever be revisiting this again.) 2.5/5

It was awesome to see this on a cinema screen and it stood up really well on a second watch.

Apart from a few scenes in episode 2 of the first OVA these are quite possibly some of the dullest anime I've ever seen. The opening credits of the first OVA promise so much and then the actual content completely fails to deliver. I suspect these OVAs heavily rely on you having read the manga first.

A Little Snow Fairy, Sugar episodes 1-13: Awwww. Channeling my inner ten-year-old girl for this one. I'd forgotten how many arguments Sugar and Saga had in the first half dozen episodes. Greta is still my favourite character (and Ginger, for consistently fending off that dirty old Elder)

Call of the Night episode 12 Part of the ordinary.

Chimimo episode 12 Hellish weather and saying goodbye? (Complete. Cute and laidback but with a slice of hell-based antics for good measure.) 3.5/5

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? IV
episode 10 Second time around.

The Devil is a Part Timer! Season 2 episode 11 Blush.

The Yakuza's Guide to Babysitting episode 12 Flower language. (Complete. A solid watch which pulled off both the sweeter and darker story beats.) 3.5/5

One Piece (Rewatch)
episodes 182-194

Bad news, aquarium date and dream.
I can't decide whether Kazuya is a trashy moron stringing along girls and doing dumb and creepy stuff or a horny idiot that's somehow found his way into a crazy situation, but still tries to do good things by the girls which end up back firing a lot of the time! Probably more of the latter, but either way he is an idiot and a loud one at that. As for the girls 2 are pretty annoying and another is so shy she has no personality which leaves the winner so clear there's no point rooting for the others even if you wanted to!
No change in the art and animation from the first season. I will say the text pop ups seems to be more obnoxious than before, there's no time to read them and the subs, and a lot of the time they fill in gaps in what the characters are thinking whilst saying something else!
6/10
Probably still watch season 3, due to the plot point introduced at the end of this season 😝

Yuru Camp s1 e8 (dub)
New kit.

Bucchigire eps 11 & 12 (complete)
Resurrection and... (waits for Crunchyroll to actually put up the English subs!) Welp, I had to go elsewhere 😉 as still no English subs on CR!
Pretty mediocre story with nothing particularly new, big bad wants to use ancient spirits to take over Japan, although a varied cast with some interesting characters. Others, MC included, less so.
I liked the art and the animation was OK.
6/10

Call of the Night Episode 12 Ordinary.

Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? IV Episode 10 History repeats.


Prima Doll Episode 12 Forgotten. (Complete. A series that uses some interesting ideas that made for quite the intriguing watch.) 3/5

The Devil is a Part-Timer! Season 2
Episode 11 Blush.

The Yakuza's Guide to Babysitting Episode 12 (Complete. Occasional unrelated darker aspects at times outshined by the lighter and sweeter story tones that made for a solid watch.) 3.5/5

When Will Ayumu Make His Move?
Episode 12 Coming to terms. (Complete. An enjoyable SoL with a likeable cast of characters for which I would very much welcome another season.) 3.5/5

Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer episode 12 Unexpected guest.

Prima Doll episode 12 Diary. (Complete. Though not every episode was great this had its moments and an air of poignancy also.) 3/5

Shadows House 2nd Season
episode 12 High hopes. (Complete. This second season stepped things up in terms of the mystery of the house and the goings-one behind the scenes. Hopefully a third season is feasible.) 3.5/5

When Will Ayumu Make His Move?
episode 12 Returning home. (Complete. Though aspects of the premise and set-up felt familiar this was a pleasant romance comedy for a Friday evening.) 3.5/5

One Piece (Rewatch)
episodes 195, 207-212, 217-219, 227-238

A Little Snow Fairy Sugar episodes 14-26: So a turtle wants to fly because he fancies a dove? Would their children be turtledoves? :cool: All lovely and emotionally satisfying. And the little girl's name is Kanon? Hmm, must get around to watching my new copy of that anime at some point.
