@Julius Help me. Been watching AoT Season 4 for 2 1/2 hours now. It's so good.

In other news, I just caught up to Spy x Family. I started reading the manga shortly before the series debuted (thanks to a good bit of foresight from the Portuguese manga publisher), and I can say that this is a very good adaptation, which is not easy to do for comedy. There's even a new scenes/segments that fit the original material like a glove.

I'd say the first couple of episodes feel a tad rushed (makes sense, they're trying to establish the premise & status quo ASAP), but it's all smooth sailing after that.

As always: pacing issues, but it's very well written.

Now time for Season 4 Part 2. And after that...wait for the final part :(

4 Episodes in.

Spoiler

Oh, so this is a time loop thing now?

Still not sure if Eren is actually mad and evil. It looks like he wants to destroy the world, but to what end? Technically, a destroyed world is peaceful...

Maybe he wants to make himself "the most evil being ever" and unite the world by making them come together and fight him?

Interesting stuff. 
Will watch more tomorrow :D

5th Episode...

Spoiler

I see...so Eren has become Hitler. :blank: 

And all this stuff about that "Parasite"? Or whatever it is?
Just some random being deciding to cause some mayhem?

Not entirely sure what to think of this development. It's all way too "out there" for me. What was once a nicely condensed plot has become something that is way too "grand".

You could say it 'tranformed' into something more 'titanic'.

Berserk is going to be continuing in the hands of some of those Miura trusted most:

Nervous after hearing how the accidental ending as a result of his untimely death was perfect in its own way, but we'll see what happens!

Watching anything on Crunchyroll or Funimation continues to be an excruciating experience. I realise that they want people to subscribe, but the adverts are genuinely awful.
Any adverts for an anime tend to just be 20 seconds of people gasping or screaming, with no indication of what the show is about at all.
Sometimes the volume level on certain ads will just double (looking at you Ni No Kuni - Cross Worlds), forcing you to turn the volume down, whereby your can't hear the show when it finally returns.
Often, they'll just play the same advert multiple times (4 in a row is my current record). It's not going to make me want the product any more.
The choice of advert is sometimes a bit suspect - adverts for all inclusive holidays in the Maldives. Is that your target audience Funimation? People who can't afford a £5 a month subscription to your cartoon steaming service?

It really gives the apps/services an amateur feel.

Yup. It's why I stopped watching Boruto. I couldn't take the constant, repeating adverts.

I'll probably subscribe at some point but yeah I couldn't keep watching the free streams, it was too annoying.

Watched the 2nd season of Mob Psycho 100. It was ok. Other than his master and a couple of others, most of the characters are pretty forgettable and pointless. The final 'battle was pretty cool, although they seemed to have broken/forgotten about the whole 100% psychic brain power mechanic, so maybe they'll rename the show for season 3?

In the week before Part 2 finished, I went back and watched the second season of Kaguya-sama: Love is War after loving the first. It's genuinely one of the funniest anime I've watched that doesn't feel like it's trying too hard to be funny, the cast of characters are all completely relatable and loveable, and man, there are just a few too many times where I got thinking back to my high school experience and was facepalming realising how many times these sorts of things happened to me and my friends. 

Excellent and pretty short, can't recommend it enough, and it's nothing if not consistent in quality from start to finish. Yeah, another 9/10

Finished season 1. Best characters are

Spoiler
  • Raman Connoisseur guy
  • Chika & Ishigami
  •  Ai Hayasaka

Surprised they only used the Chika Dance ending once considering how viral it went (and it seemed like a lot of work).

Ah, crazy. Trigun and Evangelion were pretty much my intro to anime. I've tried to go back to Trigun and rewatch over the years, but it's a bit too filler heavy. Be crazy to see what might be made of it with a more modern approach.
