Kemurikusa

Reminded me of Kemono friends with the resurrections besides the animation style. I thought it was odd the translators chose to have Wakaba say he was human when he was saying 人 in Japanese. I don't think someone saying "I'm a person" is an odd response. Then he wasn't human later on? Was he a plant? Who wasn't a plant? Who was he building plant buildings and mountains for?

I liked all the sisters, I wish the older ones got more screen time as they were more fun. Shiro was a good bug robot and I am glad he made it to the end.

More exposition would be nice but I am also okay with just not having any. Better than giant exposition dumps.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

I have never watched any original She-Ra so I figured I would see how this Netflix Series was. I thought the shading on the face was a bit weird and Catra's overall personality was grating to me, but she was probably meant to be that way.

The world building was a bit empty as the world, Bright Moon had like 4 people living in it, why was it so hard to capture?

Robot Nerd Princess was cool to see, and was her hair her power? Or her hair was just alive? Lots of questions there.

Overall it was alright, it would be nice to see some more world building in the second series.

The original She-ra was on Netflix too so I watched the first episode. HOW RIDICULOUS ARE THESE OLD CARTOONS???? Just everything about Adam/He-man. And the cat. And its named Cringer? And what is Bow's outfit even supposed to be. AND THE VOICES. I didn't watch episode two.

Fall Anime 2018

I watched a bunch of first episodes of new fall anime with no idea what they going to be about.

Between the Sky and the Sea

Your typical space fishing anime with cute girls. I made it through the cat selfie montage but stopped when she accidently ended up in space. TOO MUCH.

Dakaichi

The art style made me suspicious but then the opening confirmed this would be a rapey BL show. Made it to the opening.

Double Decker

This one was surprisingly fun. Set in some weird steampunk/future America? It was silly and bright.

Goblin Slayer

Gratuitous to be gratuitous.

Jingai-san no Yome

Set up some completely ridiculous arranged marriage to a fluffy thing and boom credits. Why did space fishing get a 24 minute long show and this one gets 3 minutes. qq

Ms Vampire who lives in my neighborhood

Moe girls who meet vampire moe girls. And the opening was all about kissing? I'll never understand.

Radiant

Shonen black clover/fairy tale thing but the main character just has to be an idiot. Character designs are somewhat interesting.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

Ignoring the title, this main character was not an idiot for once and it was refreshing. Maybe bakemonogatarish?

SSSS Gridman

Trigger being Trigger? The backgrounds were beautifully detailed and gratuitous beautiful animation? I'll watch a couple more.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

Slime main character is pretty cute, I read a bunch on this story before. Seems to be well done.

Holmes of Kyoto - Episodes 1 and 2

Caligula - Episode 1

Well when I saw this was called Caligula, I didn't think anything good would come of it. I saw a Crunchyroll twitter ad talking about idols taking over so I figured why not. MC has no idea what is going on and I don't either. Getting some really Serial Experiments Lain type vibe from it which I think is good. I thought it might go into the horror genre but it stayed out of it for this episode besides some screen flashes. Hopefully it won't go full horror like Sunshine did but I am okay with fucked up digital stuff!

Nendonow had that he really liked this on his Instagram so I figured why not try this one too! It is a really interesting setup with a chill Yakuza guy and chill Hina. AND SHE LOVES IKURA. AND THERE ARE IKURA BOWLS. I HAD NO IDEA. I LOOKED UP THE PRICE AND ITS LIKE $15 THATS NOT TOO BAD. NEW FOOD GOAL!

Also it has an interesting set up I am curious where this one will go.

GeGeGe no Kitaro (2018) Episode 2

The opening of this is great. I didn't enjoy episode 2 as much, Mana did come across as kind of useless although she did save the day. What I thought was murder vampire yokai from the opening turned out to be a cat girl. Guess I was letting Overlord influence me too much there, this is a kids show after all.

This looks like it will be a fun monster of the week type thing, maybe Mana can become useful? Yokai are always fun too.

A Place Further than the Universe - Episode 1

A lot of people were saying this was a great show so I thought I would check it out. The first episode had a Walter Mitty vibe which I really liked. Always good to be inspired to go do things! The animation was also beautiful and the backgrounds and settings made it seem like an actual place in Japan, even though I didn't see an exact city name.

Yuri on Ice

Watched this again with Kater, I had never watched the last three episodes when it was airing. I kind of regret watching them, it was a better show without seeing those final epsiodes.

JJ, my cousin, how did you lose your shit that badly?!?! And Yurio's kiss and cry scene wasn't even shown?! And then it just ends like that?!?!? Like what?! For the same routines they showed over and over again, they could have cut some of that down and added 15 minutes more content to the finale that it needed. Everything just seemed so rushed!
