Chained Soldier episode 9 Reunion.

Dungeon Meshi episode 9 Finding a way.

The Witch and the Beast episode 7 Breaking the ice.

Major 2nd 2nd Season episodes 46-50 (Complete. An engaging franchise overall with the fourth and fifth seasons of Major being the strongest, though there were some lulls here and there, especially the first third of Major Season six. Major 2nd acted as a solid successor series as well though the second season was better in my eyes and the lead more engaging despite the ending being a bit of a downer at times.) 3.5/5, 3.5/5, 3.5/5, 4/5, 4/5, 3/5, 3/5, 3.5/5

Mardock Scramble: The First Compression (Film)
, Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion (Film), & Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust (Film) A very solid and gritty sci-fi trilogy. 3.5/5, 3.5/5, 3.5/5

Spy x Family Episodes 1-12 (English dubbed) - I hear (from a friend D) that the manga does a better job with Yor as a character, I did enjoy these episodes, particularly Anya who is just sooo cute and entertaining, and I don't think I'll cancel my pre-order of the LE of Season 1 Part 2, but I can see why friend D might have said that and I will probably check out the manga at some point to see what I think of it :)

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu Season 2/Descending Stories Episode 5 (English subbed) - great, just in the middle of ep 6 atm :)

Maison Ikkoku TV Episodes 86-96 COMPLETE (REWATCH, English dubbed) - I did really enjoy rewatching this and thought both sets of dub actors (according to Wikipedia, the show was partially dubbed for the VHS release then they finished dubbing it with different VAs when it was released on DVD) did a great job (and Yotsuya's English VAs were both hilariously funny). I found Yusaku and Kyoko's contrasting personalities interesting, where he is a bit of a pushover and really struggles to say no, whereas she can be stubborn to a fault, Yusaku also contrasts with Mitaka, there were points where I legitimately disliked Mitaka for trying to push Kyoko into marrying him via her parents approval of him, but the show's strength in it's handling of him as a character lies in giving him an actual fleshed out personality with strengths and weaknesses, rather than just defining him as an unlikeable romantic rival and nothing but. I can see why @HWR found the supporting cast obnoxious, I would somewhat agree - they can be very selfish as neighbours go and they put Godai through a lot but they do grow as people to a degree throughout the show, and I did find them entertaining on the whole more so than irritating. There were also some very cute dogs in the show which added to my enjoyment. I will probably be seeking out "Side Story: Ikkoku Island Flirtation Story", "Prelude, When the Cherry Blossoms Return in the Spring", and "Maison Ikkoku Final Chapter" but the TV series tells a satisfying complete story in it's own right and draws things out to a considerably less excessive degree than other anime based on Rumiko Takahashi manga have been wont to do (also just wanna be clear that I was totally rooting for Godai, but wanted to give them some credit for fleshing out Mitaka's character anyway) :)

Hidamari Sketch X OVA specials: summer holidays. Disappointed that the picture of the girls in the bikinis behind the main menu didn't appear in either show. Just one season to go (and maybe I'll start again).

Fafner Exodus: picked this up for pennies on my trip to Malaysia last year. Didn't realise it was the first half of a sequel to Fafner. Gave up after the first episode as had no idea what was going on. All big mecha and mysterious alien invaders.

Also rewatched Immoral Guild, as I needed something tacky and stop-startable while waiting for IT to fix all the work problems.

Non anime watching this week included the complete Clangers, which was a delight.
