Isekai Cheat Magician 01

It's better than Arifureta at least. It's also got Myth&Roid doing the intro so I'm obligated to at least watch a few eps.

This got me to watch the episode. Felt like I spent the entire episode waiting for something to happen and nothing did, zzzzz. This is most likely a drop but at least Myth&Roid delivered.

Carole and Tuesday 13



The overall arc with Carole's mother is probably going to be a train wreck, and a lot of the decisions made in this show seem to artificially further the plot (like turning down the contract), but I'm enjoying the ride as it is, having four(!) new songs helps too. Army of Two and the new ED with Angela are great

The smaller things in the show remain fantastic, love that the head judge from the show is also a big record executive, and Carole is going to whoop someone's ass later in the show when Tuesday's family starts shit again. The search for the producer should've been it's own episode, instead of being cut in half. That's the good Watanabe shit right there.

FLCL Progressive is getting a DVD only release. Time to break shit. RAAAGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEE!

It's DVD only to pay homage to how stuck in the past Progressive was, nice attention to detail /s

At least they're seperate. I'll be sure to buy the FLCL Alternative Bluray when it finally hits in 2025

Sending a bunch of kids to a remote planet to fend for themselves as a school camping trip doesn't seem like a good idea, even without an anomalous teleporting orb chasing them. What happened to just cooking curry while wearing your gym tracksuit?

Carole and Tuesday Episode 13:

Well, that is a subplot that could scarcely been timed worse with the Make Mars Great Again campaign rally and demonization of the immigrant. ( I really hope that doesn't factor in with Carole later on in the series.)

Looks like this seasons Cells At Work? Just a lot more lewd and unashamedly pandering.

The trainer dude's normal head over this bodybuilder body is the funniest thing.

Holy shit at that Lupin trailer. I must be out of the loop because I always remember Japanese CG being shit. That looks awesome.

Well now that's a solid (And probably) the best CGI trailer I've seen. I wish I would travel to Japan just get to see this.

On Youtube:

Holy crap, first 3DCG anime film I've ever been interested in and Fujiko's design is actually classy.
I think that’s mostly because people love calling out the ugly stuff for easy dunking but don’t care for the decent stuff so it’s easy to slip beneath the radar.
To be fair, most full/non-limited animation 3DCG films in Japan tend to be directed Shinji Aramaki and thus they are less memorable than Thor: The Dark World.

Magical Senpai 2

I'd forgotten about this and wish I hadn't remembered. Nevertheless, I've already watched too much to not see this task through.

How does this character function in his daily life?

So, instead of being your usual rapey BL it's your usual fluffy BL, which I concede is pretty rare for anime (But not for manga), but also really fucking boring. The characters are basically genderswapped K-ons and the protagonist is literally Mayuri from Stein;Gate, personality-wise.

I'll give it another episode to see if I don't fall asleep in the middle of it again.

Late to the awful: just skimmed the preview for Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0. So much 3DCG and they seriously have Mari's tits bouncing in the plugsuit. Neon Genesis Evangelion was a mistake.

Are We Lost 2
a bit less funny than the first ep but still good. I like the survival tips. I dunno why there was a jar of jam on the island.

Hopefully now that they've found a source of fresh water they'll stop with the piss jokes

Sound Euphonium movie
I am halfway convinced Kumiko is a Persona protagonist. Only needs the social link chime to complete the picture. :p

The Demon Girl Next Door episode 1

Adorable show. Really cute. Yuko is love. I love how everybody takes everything in stride. Demons! Magical girls! Whatever. Ha!

Machikado Mazoku 1

And they say light magical girl series are dead. As a magical girl show I'm obligated to give this a try. And hey, it's a decent comedy. Not that well animated, and the jokes aren't that funny, but the setup is decent enough, so there's room for improvement. Yuko is a cute demon. Momo seems like an appropriate magical girl on the quieter, and I appreciated the timing on the transformation to show that it's near instantaneous. Plus there's probably some commentary on the "bad guys" just trying to get some money and elevate themselves out of poverty.

One thing I found interesting was Momo's powers coming through in her physical strength. Not unusual, but when did magical girls become known for that? I just find it amusing that super-strength is now a typical magical girl power.
