MHA had a unique hook (compared to other shounen), though, which is something completely absent from Demon Slayer. It established a distinctive voice right away, even if it took a minute to really get the plot rolling. So far Demon Slayer's got absolutely nothing unique going for it, no differentiator of any kind. It's perfectly competent, but there's not much else to say about it.
The start of MHA just was able to tap in the essences of heroism out of the gate while Demon Slayer hasn't been able to do so in regards of tragedy.

I was really looking forward to this season after the season 1 finale turned out pretty good, but man, the whole thing was just flat and the series finale wasn’t any better than the rest of the series. Hopefully TCW season 7 is good
I was also hopeful after the season 1 finale, both Clone Wars and Rebels started slow but ended great so I thought Resistance might go the same way.

Sadly, besides a handful of good episodes, season 2 still wasted time spinning its wheels going nowhere and the finale was "fine" at best.

I've seen other people comment that the show would have been better called Star Wars: Colossus as it was really about the people on the Colossus and not really about the Resistance, and I can see some truth in that.

Anyway, onto The Clone Wars!

I for one am excited for giant hand boss, invincible Thor, and nuclear chicken to finally make their Toonami appearances.

Give it Inuyasha Final Act pacing and it will be one of the all-time great watching experiences here.

I didn't realize until the English credits aired for the first time last week that the OP singer was the JP seiyu for Asuna. Out of curiosity I looked to see if there was a music video, and it's her as the real life Asuna, getting chased and wielding a rapier.

Haha from the bits and pieces I've read of later Bleach and reviews of chapters makes me thankful I dropped off the Bleach train after the Soul Society arc ended.

moving an entire science lab half a block away up and down 3 floors, that takes up half a floor of a building was an exhausting experience today, '

favorite part of it, at least, my new pc location gives me privacy to watch anime there again, no more being behind during the week, hype

I'll laugh myself to death if it's anything but an anime continuation.

Even if the anime does come back, that's literally the end of Bleach. The franchise isn't popular enough anymore to warrant any sort of spinoff or sequel.

Its decent though not my favorite piece of work by Watanabe by any means. Do love the social issues and diversity and even a decent amount of the music but I felt there were a ton of episodes that I really feel could have been replaced with something a bit more original or meaningful. The episode where they're dealing with the drunken robot felt like some weird knock off Futurama vibe that never went anywhere.
