What are you watching/reading 2023?

New Year! Have 11 shows so far this season! I want to be hyped for Kubo, but her model doesn't quite match the manga. Of course, there's Vinland Saga S2, and Nagatoro S2. Oh, and Maple S2! :D

Three shows so far: Bungou Stray Dogs S4 starts off with Ranpo's origin story in a film noir style. Nice! Tomo-chan and Ice Guy got repetitive quickly, weakening their debuts a lot. If either continues like this, I'll likely drop them.

Buddy Daddies is just OK, giving it 3. Lots of well worn tropes here, so the key is in the execution(no pun intended,lol). So far, that's just so-so.

The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is good! I like the interactions between the leads. A keeper!

Have not watched the original Trigun, but the reboot Trigun Stampede is pretty good, studio Orange has done a great job with the animation! Lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth on MAL about them ruining it, the Original is the only good one. Don't care, I still like it.

Dozed off in the middle of the 1st ep of NieR:Automata Ver1.1a and couldn't stay awake. Yes, the story is that boring, and I couldn't invest in the characters. Dropped.

Nagatoro isn't starting off as strong as S1. The writing feels cheaper, as does the animation. Nagatoro is not a B cup, lol! Hopefully, it'll get better.

Kubo is great, right in my wheelhouse, especially with HanaKana wielding her magic. That is all. ;)

Vinland Saga S2? They added some backstory for Einar's origins, and it was as glorious as it was brutal. Awesome.

Kaina of the Great Snow Sea is CGI, but it's not bad, with an interesting premise!

Even though I liked the general dynamic between the two leads, the "freezing everything" shtick that Ice Guy uses 20 times an episode is fatiguing. Dropped.

Rewatching .hack//SIGN and discovering disc 3 won't work. Fortunately someone put them up online and they haven't been taken down for some reason.
