Not too much to see this season; Dress Up Darling, Takagi S3, Demon Slayer, Ranking of Kings, and Akebi's Sailor Uniform, that's it. Dropped Brisco, it looked really cool at first, but the writing and characters were too meh. Never was an AOT fan, so continuing that tradition.

There's a new manga with a rakugo theme on Viz now called Akane-banashi. It's not bad.

86 couldn't have had a better ending. Wild onions in Kentucky are strong this year, I think. ;)

I'm not too thrilled by the way that Ranking of Kings ended, with the Daida/Manjaro thing.

Takagi S3 ended well, with everything but the confession. Perhaps there will be one(or two) in the movie?

Cloverworks' adaptation of My Dress-up Darling was absolutely platinum, a top tier job of a manga I already enjoy very much. Easily best show of the season for me.

Akebi's Sailor Uniform was peak CGDCT; no unnecessary drama, just a bunch of middle school girls riffing off the force that was Akebi.

Witchcraft Works anime (2014), a comedy in which the usual male/female roles are reversed and the witch is constantly saving her boyfriend's butt. I was curious about my friend's comment that he didn't fully understand the plot and am re-watching it. I also found the original is a manga (March 2010 to February 2022}. So the animators had to fabricate an ending! I've ordered vol. 15, the last US one out (April 2021). The crazy timing of anime!

This was a goofy plot pretending to be subtle and profound.

Trying to get S2 of Spice and Wolf finished before the new season starts, but not sure if I'm going to make it. Still failing to see what the more veteran weebs saw in Holo; she's solid, but nowhere near an S class Best Girl/waifu.

New season! Giving Aharen 3. Sure, Aharen is cute, but cute can only take a show so far. Also wish Raidou wasn't as dumb as a brick.

How an exiled Hero Rebuilt the Demon's Army is off to a generic start, giving this one 3 also.

Read the oneshot by Fujimoto called Goodbye, Eri. It was Ok, but a little predictable. I'm sure Eri would agree..... :' )

After having a sparse four shows to keep last season, currently I'm at 13, with A Couple of Cuckoos yet to start. First impressions:

Potential All Timer Tier:

Spy x Family: An incredible adaptation of an already excellent work. Awesome.
Love is War S3: 2nd ep was back to their high standards after a slow 1st ep.

Most excellent so far:

Paripi Koumei: Wasn't planning on watching this(premise was too weird), but a lot of buzz got me to try it, and I'm hooked. Is saying this is the best PA since Shirobako too hot of a take?
Summertime Render: This is going to be a good one, I can feel it.

Pretty good:

Komi S2: At least she's talking a little more.... ;)
Deaimon: The execution may be a little off some times, but you can't deny the large beating heart this show has.
Bookworm S3: Myne isn't a little brat(so far), so that's a good thing.

Decent:

Shield Hero S2: This one has a weird vibe to it, Naofumi as a hard character to get behind.
Shikimori: As long as this show doesn't remain a one joke anime, it will be OK.
Aharen: It's cute, but very simple.
The Executioner and Her Way of Life The fight scenes are pretty good, but the story and characters are meh.

Meh:

I'm Quitting Heroing: Not sure where this show is going, is it a fantasy version of Japanese business commentary, or what?

Probably drop:

In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki Most of this show is pretty cringe. Not feeling it at all.

Went ahead and dropped Kunoichi Tsubaki . Premise is weird, and most of the girls are forgettable.

Couple of Cuckoos is OK, don't see it doing anything amazing(why it's 24 eps, who knows?).

Heard that the manga Otonari ni Ginga (A Galaxy Next Door) was getting an anime adaptation next year. Seeing it was done by Amagakure Gido(Sweetness and Lightning) I scrounged up the 8 translated chapters online, and the wholesomeness of this manga of off the charts! Will be watching it when it comes out, for sure!

Some updates:

Bookworm S3 finished strong, after flopping around most of the season. Next season promises to be very interesting!

Am now reading Megami no Café Terrace; A lot of ecchi and fanservice, MC can be a dickhead, I like the girls though. Yeah, it's a harem.... :roll:

I heard Kimi wa Houkago Insomnia was going to get an anime; the PV interested me, so I gave the manga a shot. It's really, really good. I just hope it doesn't do a Your Lie in April on me, or I'll be heartbroken and pissed.
