I feel this at the core of my soul. Lots of old stuff I will listen to the op and ed. New stuff no way.

Anime News Network run through an english -> spanish google translate? I like how the link to their youtube channel leads directly to a subscription confirmation page. It's like asking everyone to marry you the first second they glance at you, very pro.

You might get better insight with the Ai Dungeon. While the language model might not be the greatest for talking about anime in the abstract, you can go on a fantastical detective mission with Vegeta in the world of Ghost in the Shell... or whatever the hell you want. As always, I recommend just priming the thing with a scenario, letting the fever dream ride by continuously hitting enter, and only nudge it when you're bored or it drifts off course into godzilla cosplay.

After being delayed due to a certian crappy virus, No Guns Life is back for a second season. If you missed the first, I'd reccomend you go back and watch it first. Great sci-fi anime.

Hmm, great sci-fi anime sounds like an oxymoron but I'll try it.

From what I've heard, Isayama is supposed to be finishing the manga within this year... I guess they'd have a season break, like in the previous one, if it comes to it. Or failing that, hopefully he has the script already finalised.

(I said, shuddering at the Game of Thrones references in the manga. Hopefully a single consistent author will prove more reliable than a decade-frozen trainwreck and a pair of artless jerkoffs)

Time of Eve is about a couple of humans and a bunch of robots sitting around in a cafe drinking coffee all day and talking about their feelings.

It's about the greatest thing ever.

One of the very few broad spectrum pieces of media that I recommend to everyone.

Looks like exactly my kind of bullshit.

Let's start with a non-recommendation to make things interesting.

The "Sonic Soldier Borgman: Last Battle" OVA is trash. It lures you in with it's nice late 80s aesthetic but everything after the halfway point is bad. The main characters are bad (I'm not sure the main dude even learned his lession) and the villian is so laughably bad I'm not sure I would notice if he was replaced with a litterary cardboard cutout. His plot is bad and his super secret final weapon is bad. I'm sorry to report even the titular last battle is bad.

The only positives are the opening which is sweet (them late 80s sci-fi vibes) and the ending, which again is nice for the same reasons.

As for things that are actually good, I've been enjoying a manga called "Sleepy Barmaid" which follows a trio of bartenders who each has their own style of bartending. The main character has a mobile bar she sets up in different places and interact with different customers with whom she can share a moment and perhaps solve their various troubles.
It also makes me quite thirsty, even though I find that most alcoholic beverages tastes like chemical soup.

"Play it Cool, Guys" is a slice of life manga with cool but clumsy guys. The artstyle is very nice and it's very charming.

"Handsome Girl and Sheltered Girl" is adorable. A seemingly very boyish girl find herself as the boyfriend of a cheerful but sheltered girl and their romantic progression is very wholesome to watch. The latest chapter was excellent and I didn't cry at all.

There is so much other good fluff that I'm also reading but this will do for now :mrgreen:

Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise.
I'm just kinda impressed at how much better it has gotten, both compared to the first Divers season and its own early episodes.
Mentioning any of what's happening right now is major spoilers for both seasons, but damn, I'm really enjoying this show.

Still reading Eden's Zero. It's dumb fun. Dumb fun in space. Stupid time-travel nonsense. Some neat powers here and there. The setting is designed to allow the author to throw anything he wants in there and connect it in a "logical" way.

Also, I can't remember if I mentioned this, but I dropped Beastars.
The entire Melon arc is a total shitshow.

hey guyz, was there ever a mech anime where the villains could combine multiple mechs into one Explosive Hyper Mech of Dooom?

On topic: I watched four eps of Lucky Star, for no reason. Aside from the rad references, it was a bit meh.

Went through OG Space Cruiser Yamato TV series. Kind of had it on as I got some other things done, like shit post here. Good thing I couldn't pick up on plot holes when I was a kid. Good fun though...especially the disco tunes. Will probably go through the other series. I've seen them all, but it's been ages. The movies I'll have to break up a bit. They're so damn long.

Saraba Uchu Senkan Yamato

Setup for the biggest mulligan in history. I'm curious if they planned on saying J/K and doing the TV series while making it or if it came later. Usual tropes from the original and pretty cool as they went for broke with the body count. But, I think they took it a little too far. Some of the "have names but aren't major characters" deaths were somewhat emotionless as everyone with more screen time was probably killed off just seconds earlier. Nonetheless, fun.

Is the upcoming 4th Evangelion reboot movie still in production or has it been cancelled? Seems like it's been ages since Evangelion 3.33 was released on the big screen & later on DVD/Blu-ray formats.

I've noticed that the 4K Ultra Blu-Ray disc set of Akira has been out in Japan since April of 2020. Is it worth viewing in that format? I've noticed that 4K disc set of Akira still hasn't been released in the USA as of today.

PC Engine Fan X! ^_~

Much like New Ghostbusters, 3.0+1.0 was scheduled to release this year but was delayed due to the first calamity of the apocalypse destroying the business known as "theaters". There's even a (real) trailer for it that dropped earlier this year.

When I was watching Haruhi earlier I noticed something I never noticed before: the males and females in this world are basically different species. The females have gigantic eyes that occupy 30% of their skulls, it's horrific when you look at it clinically. Also opens some new doors: this means Kunikida isn't a boy, he's female according to his anatomy.

Beastars is finally ending, so I might just decide to blitz through from where I stopped just to say I finished it.
God, that story had so much promise, and then it completely dropped the ball.

I remember enjoying this like twelve years ago.
No idea what I'd think of it 12 years later, though.

Kind of a bad year for the Higurashi revival. Stuff like the new Animaniacs episodes might be more in vogue. If New Higurashi got a dub, it would be the single most unlikely thing to have happened in human history.

One Punch Man is still great. Saitama joined a bunch of pathetic losers, "the anti-shitty hero names" organization, as their leader. He's spending these days protesting their inhumane treatment. It's the best.

Murata Punch Man can't even decide if it wants to keep chapters or delete them from existence. Didn't want one of the heroes to be a cold blooded killer, so poof, replaced with a contrived retcon. (Unfortunately heel->face characters in OPM don't get the benefit of sanitized shonen violence, since the violence is there on-screen blood and guts and all. (Killing Yamchas don't count 'cause Yamchas aren't people.)) It's irredeemable, the worst. Why couldn't they just release volumes when they were ready?

Going to watch the first episode of Zvezda, I think I remember a youtuber recommending something like it 3 or 4 years ago. Protagonist joins a stupid evil organization as a henchman?

Beastars is finally over.

God, I really don't know if I want to actually go and see the ending.
I will never stop being mad about how it went from "manga of the decade" material to "it's trash, give up" so quickly.
If Paru goes and does another manga, I'll probably pick that up, because she's capable of doing good work and I think her art style is pretty stylish, even if it's super grungy... but I'll still tense up and expect the writing to fall to pieces at some point.
