It's sorta early days for Kakushigoto - Secrets but at least it doesn't seem too weird.

Kakegurui XX - More funny faces.

Asuka - I kinda like the premise but it feels so early 2000s low budget pulp.

Endro - I started it because of an amusing photoshop which redid some of the lines to be about MtG. But the show itself is a bit nyeh.

Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai - I kinda like the premise but the weird mishmash of 2D and 3D animation is just bleh. They are kinda doing a thing where the main characters are in 3D but some of the side(probably non recurring) characters are done in 2D. And the 2D characters are kinda done pretty well and look a lot better than our 3D main cast... so the presentation is just kinda really distracting.

Dororo - Seems cool so far.

===

I also randomly binged Zombieland Saga. Probably the most entertaining show of last season.

I have an on-off love-hate relationship with 5Toubun no Hanayome... can't swallow more than 2-3 chapters at a time, but it draws me back.... lol.

Started watching Love Lab. I like it. I like the general vibe and humor/characters. I also like that one of the main characters has the same voice actress (and basically the exact same voice) (and somewhat similar appearance and character traits) as Hibiki from Idolmaster, who is one of my all time favorite characters. It's almost like I get to watch another iteration of Hibiki.

If you are tired of middle/high schoolers mangas, and 29 to JK is too out there for you, there is still Kawaii Joushi wo Komarasetai :)

(If 29toJK is not too out there, try P to JK... that is.)

Finished Violet Evergarden. I loved it. I thought it was beautiful.

Finished Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (main show/1st season). Aside from getting a bit heavy at times, I still overall really liked it and thought it was very good.

Started watching Kino's Journey. I already love it.

Finished Lovely Complex. This is now pretty high on my all-time favorites list. And the MC (Koizumi Risa) is on my all-time best girls list, whatever that means, lol.

And today I discovered Osananajimi ni najimitai - pretty early days but looks like it could be a good comedy.

Oh and Edens Zero (manga...) looks like has a highly interesting story arc beginning at chapter 30...

Super Virtual Planet, self aware AI inhibiting a game world... rings bells right?

Another one, seems nicely thought out at the start (reading) Koi wa Ameagari no You ni.

We're at the halfway point in the season, and I think this is one of the strongest since I started watching anime five years ago.

Dororo, Mob Psycho 2, Neverland, Love and War, and Shield Hero are top notch, with Quintessential Quintuplets just a tic below. Slime has lost some steam, but still is a very good show. Boogiepop is the only show I'm still watching that's just so-so, and that's partly because of its' slow pacing.
