I had a small period in which I watched some anime with my girlfriend. We introduced some short anime to each other since we loved them. I introduced her to Angel Beats and she introduced me to Another.

By myself I watched Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters since I got into the mobile game again and on dutch TV they only showed the Battle City arc. I recently finished it as well so I might give GX a try.

I still have plenty of anime I plan to watch on MyAnimeList though...

i like to watch seasonal anime, so now is a time to be alive!

this season we are watching:
Darling in the Franxx
Uma Musume: Pretty Derby
Magical Girl Ore
Amanchu! ~Advance~
Hinamatsuri (Funimation dub)
My Hero Academia (Funimation dub)

out of those six, Darling in the Franxx is my main both this season and the season before. Uma Musume is a series i have been waiting quite some time for, and it is plenty of cute fun! Magical Girl Ore and Amanchu! ~Advance~ are on the back burner

it is also nice having Funimation's SimulDubs, because otherwise I likely wouldnt be watching Hinamatsuri. i started HeroAca in english, so i am committing to it!

i also finished Ancient Magus Bride using Funimation's dub! definitely a harder hitting series than i expected!!! ;-;

and Digimon Adventure tri. finished about a week ago...i have...opinions...

--

when i am not watching new content, my handler watches older stuff! for breakfast, i find a series on hulu. right now i am watching Accel World. a coworker said it was by the guy who did Sword Art Online but that they like it better. honestly it is not very enjoyable. -u- the conflicts are from the dumbest of evil motivations and whatever commentary is being made on attraction or romance is very distasteful. maybe it is dated? it also does that thing where it is self-aware about fan service, so instead of applying fan service organically, it feels heavily baited and stays much longer than necessary. this stinks because the action can actually be pretty alright, so if anything i would want to give this the good power rangers treatment and just repurpose all the in-game visuals

for lunch my handler brings a dvd player and watches whatever series or we have! recently we finished Star Blazers, which we fun! we also just finished a normal run of the Neon Genesis Evangelion television series, but we're continuing with the Director's Cut DVDs instead of watching Death and Rebirth. it is easy to notice what is added to the episodes since they are fresh in the mind!

that's the anime update for now! there will likely be more to say at the end of the season!

I've also been watching Hinamatsuri, saw the dub a week ago and laughed at how they made the main Yakuza character into a generic italian mobster in terms of voice. Makes sense from a dub perspective, but it's very stupid.

In terms of anime from my last update (because I know you all care :smug:), I've finished Made in Abyss and Mob Pyscho 100. Didn't care much for Mob Psycho but it had a decent ending so I just gave it a 7/10. If you enjoyed something like One Punch Man this show is basically for you.

As for Made in Abyss I wouldn't watch it until the 2nd season is out. It's one of those shows that create a lot of mystery surrounding the Abyss and then never explain it. So expect it all in the 2nd season. Although, it was pretty good. I enjoyed it more than Mob Pyscho.

Finished a short OVA called Airbats, about a Japanese air force in the 90's getting into dumb adventures and such. Wasn't very good but it was 7 episodes long so it's not like I missed anything by not watching it. Wouldn't recommend it though.

I also decided to watch some currently airing shows. Darling in the Franxx, Hinamatsuri and Gurazeni being the three I chose. I jokingly referred to DitF as being "Eva but good" to annoy people, but as I watch more of it I find myself more engrossed in this story than I was for Eva, so maybe that might be a true opinion for me in the future.

Hinamatsuri is cute and quite funny. It's honestly worth a watch if you enjoy shenanigans with a young girl who can control things with telepathy and a Yakuza who went soft to keep her around.

Gurazeni is an odd one, it's about a pro baseball player who makes an 18 million yen salary and is in the peak of his career and is attempting to make as much money as possible before he is forced to retire. It's an odd show to say the least and it's hard to really talk about the plot because there really isn't one. Every episode just sort of deals with the MC going up against people who make more money that he does and usually ends with him lamenting the loss of his team due to the idea he's not worth as much as the other player, or celebrating the win he let the team obtain by his play and that he can obtain the "money diamond" which is what he called the Baseball pitch (and is the Japanese name of the show Gurazeni = Money Diamond). Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this one unless you REALLY love baseball. Although, it has a great funky OPand cute ED.

Still making it through Monster, Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water and Kyou Kara ora wa!. I'm very slow when it comes to watching anime.

Manga wise, I'm REALLY close to finishing Slam Dunk. Man, that really turned around. Once they get to the nationals it became REALLY GOOD. Especially the art. The artist is really good at drawing the illusion of animation, and using the size of panels and pages to convey information so you don't get spoiled on the same page. It's really something when you think someone is going to score only for the next page to show the ball hit the rim and then Sakuragi comes in for the rebound dunk. It's awesome. It's a shame I never got the hear the great soundtrack while I read it, but I'd rather have a finished story in one form, than having to switch from Anime to Manga.

Although, Slam Dunk's OST does have a Sonic Adventure vibe to it. Like in this one and this one.

I've been reading High Score Girl on and off as well. It's getting an anime this July so I'll be all on that. It's very good, here's the trailer. Berserk is still up there on my currently reading even if updates 4 chapters a year. Part 5 of Kaiji finally finished translation so after I finish Slam Dunk it's straight onto that. Apart from that I don't really read much else, or if I do it's about 10 at a time and I've forgotten.

Here's my MAL if anyone cares.

Holy shit this fucking guy

That's a blast to the past, I remember seeing him a ton when I was younger. Granted it was always in crossover shows and stuff like that.

because my powerful image was removed i will now unleash the horns of the goat

ever since i saw that dumb cuck moment in franxx i have sworn myself to hate it and swore that one day i'll watch it, jot down notes, and make sure anyone who likes it can be confirmed for being one stage of evolution behind the rest of humanity and ensure the show makes it possible to have negative review scores applied because of the absolute breakdown i will deliver unto this evangelion wannabe

There are a handful of cuck scenes, you're going to have to be more specific on which one caused your hate boner.
