The current season selection seems a bit vanilla in flavor, but there are at least some highlights...

Bakatrina S2 ... need I say more? I was a bit wondering where they would take this after S1, and but we do get more clueless, moar amusement.

Maid Dragon S ... Moar full lenght shinenigans which the world hanging in the balance... why not.

Slime S2 ... With Kumoko going on hiatus, I decided to catch up with this one, and I still do prefer the spider one over this, but also this is also showing some peculiar series sides to it.

Peach boy riverside ... another year, another momotaro ... but hey, at least we get shiny leggins ... and a blonde short bob... just like Cross Ange.

Girlfrend, Girlfrend ... well.. debauchery is probably the best description for this ... somehow manages to be amusing, though once all four girls are in play will have to see.

White sand aquatope ... PA Works delivers the eyecandy this season, with some Yuri undertones ... and we all love our yuri...

Jahy wont be defeated ... I was expecting a bit more out of Silver link to be honest.. but shall see if the failed demon lord thing can get up to gear.

Tsukimichi ... as if there wasnt enough isekai in the diet already, but probably something to get you over a konosuba withdrawal...

 

Quite a few things in the rewatch pile, including Im@s - Cinderella girls, and Konosuba that I can remember off the bat ... also completed the Tetsuo Sato trilogy which resulted in a four-six page essay which will never see the light of day, although probably should watch Rinne no lagrange also now that I think of it, though that doesent count as they stay on earth ...

I've been watching Sora yori mo Tooi Basho (A Place Further Than the Universe) and recently finished watching the third season of Gochiusa (Is the order a rabbit?). I've thoroughly enjoyed watching these two and hope that Gochiusa gets a fourth season.

I've never actually been into anime all along, but this hobby has gotten me interested in watching a little (and comparing it to the manga).

That one is really good. 


The difference between Dollfie Dreams and Heroin? Heroin is illegal, Dollfie Dreams probably should be.

“Empty wallets, full hearts.” That’s probably an apt description for the effects of DD addiction

strongly recommended as one of those all-too-rare series that brims with genuine charm and humor, not to mention stellar production values;

I've been reading the manga for this, and aside from the gratuitous fanservice, it's been a surprisingly interesting and informative read and shows much overlap between dolls and cosplay. It'll be interesting to see how the anime adapts the more introspective parts.

Edit: 7 episodes in, it's been one disappointment after another.

hmm.. well, been awhile but I suppose could take a stab at this once again ...

First I suppose some of the highlights that have come and gone since the last update, most likely funi additions to the crunchy lineup, because reasons ...

All in Defence - Bofuri - As far as SAO / Hack//Sign wannabe's go, this is one of the more lighthearted ones with a fairly fun take on the overpowered heroine, with a sort of amusing twist with the dark lord look shielder. Quite fun if you are just out for some amusement.

Akebi's sailor uniform - This is pretty much a yuri'esqe slice of life thing, with oddly enough Kana Hanazawa in a motherly role for a change. Goes about the general theme of being slightly unique bringing about special encounters or the like, but unfortunately we all know how that goes in reality ... still worth the eyecandy I guess...

Land of Leadle - Another SAO / Hack//sign variant, although this isnt as recomended as say bofuri was... its main attraction is that its pretty much flat in terms of story, and doesent quite take advantage of the overpowered heroine within. Only watch if there isnt anything else on the table.

Mushoku Tensei / Jobless reincarnation - The whole otherworld series thing is getting a bit out of hand on occasion, but once in awhile you do stuble across something that just makes you go -- Wow . And this is one of those series. There are some squirmy twists in the plot in terms of ... lets just say inapropreate content, but still comes recommended, Tomokazu Sugita as the voice in the head of the Hero is worth it at the very least.

Princess Connect -  Well, this one is pretty much burger stand entertainment, overpowered goofy fun. 'nuff said.

Dress up Darling - This one caused a bit of a splash I suppose ... like it or hate it, its still quality animation that definately had used some questionable reference materials for its sequences -- ahem -- but still at the end of the day it was predicatable, even to the twist with the little sister character, and somewath of a pathetic male fantasy (this term used to be a thing at least), but I still dont mind, as it was still a solid effort ... did I also mention it was the sister production to Akebi's uniform?

Ordinary guy Knockout reincarnation - The whole TSF thing was bound to get another anime at some point besides Ranma½, or that was at least what I thought would happen sooner or later, and this effort was quite lighthearted on a somewath peculiar subject. Shinenigans a plenty, and as thus worth a watch, despite having a sharktooth hero/heroine...

Muv-Luv Alternative -- I was sort of curious for the origin story of this thing, afterall Total Eclipse and Schwarzesmarken were in my opinion quality efforts in term of story ... but the thing was, those two had people involved who knew how to write .. the áge original ... not so much, and now I see why it had taken so long for the first piece to get an animation version ... I can only really recommend this for completionists, as the whole world-warp thing took away so much from the overall thing ... and it just doesent have redeeming qualities to make up for it -- well maybe Meya and Mitsuki.

Takt op Destiny - You might think that being a promotion for a mobile role playing game would be detrimental to any given thing, but this one does make up for it in terms of a slightly peculiar take on the whole battles with magical girl sidekicks theme, by basing them on classical symphonies. Also the relatively early use of Moonlight Sonata as a battle theme does give a bit of a taste of things to come --- and of course Wagners Valkyries had to be a tsundere...

Finest assassin reincarnated - The themes of isekai series seem neverending and this time a old geezer of a gunman gets another shot at otherworldly life... but a rather solid effort, with some squirmy bits included as warning, waiting to see if there will be a second season of this.

Fena Pirate Princess - Now this one is amusing in the sense that you can pretty much imagine from the start that a bunch of american producers walked into the offices of Production IG saying that they want a japanese animation that mixes Pirates of the carribean, DaVinci code, National Treasure, and a generic samurai flick and the like into a fantasy setting... Is that a bad thing by itself? ... maybe, maybe not. worth a watch I guess.

Wandering Witch - A fairly solid fantasy setting young girl on adventure series, but does come with a slight dark side to it, wich starts out as a mild taste at first but gets stronger as it progresses. one plot twist especially might be a bit much for the more sensitive folk.

Super Cub - If you want to experience a slightly cringe worthy product placement series, then you dont have to go further than this ... but on the other hand there is some delight to be had when a seemingly clueless girl starts to learn mechanical stuff, even if the bare basics of upkeep of a scooter. on the production side of things, using vivaldis seasons is a nice touch, and the animation has a fun quirk of being washed out in general, but when the lead character experiences something positive the colors are brought in with force as an extra measure. ... but those cringey line's might be a bit much for some.

And for the more ongoing stuff...

A Couple of Cuckoos - This one is a bit like Girlfriend, Girlfriend from a few seasons back, but its taken with a slightly more serious take with whole baby-swap thing as a kick off. slice of life comedy at its finest I suppose.

Dont hurt me my healer - this is a weird one ... cringe is the name of the game, and as such its an aquired taste ... but Carla is Carla... and now I want a blue eyed tan dark elf in my doll collection.

Heroines run the show - So you were craving for some happy-happy Fruits basket type life comedy stuff in your life? ... Well maybe that was a bit of a stretch, but you cant blame the comparison when a seemingly country hick girl tries to make heads or tails out of a pair of school idols she winds up looking after to a degree ... been entertaining at least so far.

Bookworm reincarnated - This is a series that I sort of watch, without really knowing how to describe any redeeming qualities for it ... fantasy setting is what it is, but still oddly fascinating.

Deaimon - traditional japanese sweets informercial -- pretty much a straight laced slice of lifer ... if it werent for that silly chestnut headpiece.

Best picks of this season:

Skeleton knight - This takes the whole overpowered hero thing to the next level, and the whole bulldozer approach with zeal. Highly entertaining with a suitable opening theme to boot.

Overly Cautious hero - Ever wondered what it would be like, if Aqua from konosuba had to deal with the Goblin Slayer? ... well look no further. Bonus points for using the voices of Yunyun, and Goblin slayer for this where overkill is the best kind of kill. Absolute hilarity ... with the obligatory serious twist at the end, but eh... whatchagonnado...

And finally

Spy x Family - Now its quite obivous that the gang who thought up this one had seen the movie remake of The Man from UNCLE ... and as I did like that movie I do like this animation series of a neo-family of a spy, an assasin, and a kid esper with a slighly hyperactive imagination... Yor seems to have taken the fanart side of things this season, so I wouldnt be surprised if a custom DD or two were to pop up at some point.

 

 

I guess thats enough for now ... I suppose...

Is the manga very different? I watched the anime a few weeks ago and was underwhelmed by the end.

I thought it had an interesting premise but the only reason it worked at all was because Marin is basically the ultimate cool girl that every guy wants to date, with a perverted/nerdy side every guy secretly hopes for (but would be disgusted with if she wasn’t as attractive as she is). Viewed through this lens, the show lost most of its charm for me 😕

The manga's done better, but it's not fundamentally different in concept. Some of the later arcs are quite nice, but some are just so-so. I still follow it in hopes that the pack will pick up again, but it's been slow.

Lately, I've been watching various series that have been represented in Azone's catalog. Not all of them click, but it's nice to know the backstories behind all the characters that get turned into dolls by Azone. They seem to really like those CGDCT series, and it makes sense since those characters lend themselves really nicely to Azone's style.

It's been soo long since I watched any anime...
Cowboy Bebop came on netflix, so I've finally gotten that one off my list. I can see why people recommend it, but also... it felt a bit over-hyped.

My all-time favorites/what I'd recommend:
Sailor Moon (still haven't gotten to finish it! But I'm just over halfway there)
Gintama - just, watch it!
Naruto (if you ignore the fillers)
and I think Attack on Titan was an incredible watch (I've just seen season 1, and skim-read the rest).
Also, Danganronpa 3, as it was very satisfactory in concluding the two games.

I have many that I don't care for as well. But what mainly comes to mind is Kiba. The first episode seemed nice when it aired, and I still feel bitter about sitting through all those (51!) episodes thinking it'd get better... 🤦‍♂️

Oooh, I hope you watch Love is War! That one was legitimately hilarious, and the dolls look exactly like the characters.
