Aight, dropped Caligula because it went a little too "anime" for what I would've liked out of the concept.

I think my watch-list is more or less ironed out for this season

Continuations

One Piece
Pokemon
Black Clover
Darling in the Franxx (getting weaker)

New

Legend of the Galactic Heroes
Megalo Box
Cutie Honey Universe
Comic Girls
Hinamatsuri
Golden Kamuy
Captain Tsubasa
Gegege no Kitarou

Jury's still out

Wotaku (it's like... a show about otaku but you would almost never know it with how little otaku stuff is part of the story. I'm assuming that's coming later)

Generic, can drop them at any time but they do just enough that I'll probably keep them

Grancrest Senki (continuing, it's shockingly violent for how generic it is and that always draws me back in)
Dances With The Dragons (I'm hoping for more dragons)
Jushinki Pandora (Mecha AND Giant monsters is a decent way to get me hanging around if it's generic)
Devils Line (sometimes it's too Twilight but other times it's very Tokyo Ghoul with anime-japan)

(Also like 8 others that I'm hoarding for later if I watch their various series Lurking/sketchy )

- EYE POKE
- RIFLE BUTT INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND THE FALLS OFF A CLIFF rofl rofl rofl

Ha, the first 10 mins of Wotaku ep 2 were a lot better. How they both talk about dating, holy shit rofl

Spoiler:

Ofc the gamer guy compares her to a mythical Pokemon always escaping and compares the situation to a dating sim, and the cosplayer friend calls him "prime real estate" rofl

Attempting to run like it was an RPG rofl

And the fucking two nerds were volleyball players who fight fierce battles with each other holy shit just fuck already rofl

"He didn't say that" NICE

"Let me explain. It's exactly what you're thinking." THEY'RE ALREADY FUCKING rofl

Hinamatsuri 3

The first half of the ep is a heartwarming story about homeless people sticking together, but the real joy was the second half when the studious middle school bartender has her homeroom teacher accidentally show up at her bar rofl

Golden Kamuy 2
Spoiler:

-all those scars and bullet holes
-The guy being like "you're Ainu, guess I'll sell you," the casualness of it is so disturbing, like it's no bigger thing than finding a few coins on the ground.
-it's not the most gorgeous show ever, but I'm enjoying the mix of nature and historic city settings
-fucking person-sized squirrel trap
-that she thinks pencils are cool is a cool historical moment
-and then he does the bendy pencil optical illusion rofl
-"women loved him b/c he was good with his hands" went in a different direction from what I was expecting  Wink wink nudge nudg
-stopping in the middle of the fight to give us a history lesson
-the way they're using squirrel traps like mad, the way the soldier just breaks his neck in a fall into a ravine, I like the way it feels like even the action scenes feel deeply based in the setting, Hokkaido feels like a force of its own rather than just a background to provide props for fighting with
-"there's one way I learned not to die. Don't get killed"  I guess
-glaring him into eating the raw squirrel brain Laughing
-Ainu food lesson!
-guess he didn't break his neck after all. Thanks for nothing, Hokkaido scenery! Disapproving
-escape artist!
-the shattering trees Shiny/thrilled This show is so educational!
-going back into the icy water to find his bullets
-And then Escape Artist coughs one up
-their relief at the fire
-what the fuck is with that face plate, he's like a vertical Phantom of the Opera

Legend of the Galactic Heroes 3
Spoiler:

-the history stuff is pretty generic
-artificial eyes, so the future does have something futuristic other than spaceships, I was beginning to wonder
-Inferior Genes Exclusion Act, I see they're going full-on Nazi with the previous Emperor
-it's always a little disappointing in shows where the side characters have slightly more distinctive features that they keep the main characters in totally generic anime style, it's rare to get main characters in super-pretty anime style but still with a touch more personality in their appearances
-Ridiculously Pretty Young Men Being Intrigued/Impressed by Other Ridiculously Pretty Young Men: The Series
-oh look, women do exist in the future  innocent
-the blond eyelashes look weird
-Ridiculously Pretty Young Men Being Shirtless Together with Other Ridiculously Pretty Young Men: The Series
-they're nobles in this super-fancy, hierarchical society, and the sister still has to do laundry? I guess the future doesn't have servants or domestic chore robots
-and women get sold off to the emperor. This future is fun.
-man, this show is 25% "here's a different cool uniform!"
-evil rich kids. I'm beginning to think they're setting it up for Reinhardt and Kircheis to switch sides eventually.
-the statue of the evil emperor having cameras in the eyes was a fucking cool idea
-the sister is so incredibly bland
-pretty blond guy wants to be the emperor and own the universe with quiet friend at his side, does the future have eclipses Uh-oh

This episode was pretty meh. I like the direction of him having a potentially dark or reckless ambition that at some point his friend may have to stand against, but the setting feels like it's been done a million times and when there's no space strategy stuff going on the story and character development is really generic. I'm losing interest a fair bit.

Golden Kamuy 3

- Soldier with messed up leg becomes a party member Grin

- Oh boyyyy, let's go hang out in the village so we can raise our baby bear Grin
- "Look at this tattoo!" as she's yanking on her grandmother's face
- Welp, shoulda let the wolf eat the solider, now he wants the wolf pelt
- Grandma is asking Sugimoto to take her as his wife so she can die peacefully rofl rofl rofl
- They give them gross names to ward off demons and then when they grow old enough, they give them names based off of their personality, d'awwwww
- Mannnn, this belief system Feeling loved
- A defiant Ainu girl for a new era
- Whoops, didn't notice that the main bad guy of the soldiers is our collective favourite voice actor Shiny/thrilled
- A fragment of his skull got blown off and sometimes it leaks, FUCK
- BIT OFF HIS FINGER
- And blames it on some of his brain missing, god damn

Galactic Heroes 3

Spoiler:

- Nazi-style political takeover, American style rise of a new freedom state, 150 years of war awww yeahhh
- That's quite the promotion
- And he gets a royal Recorder to play flutey music on
- Inferior Genes Exclusion Act, but his space eyes lit up for Reinhard's gay boyfriend
- A romantic walk through the hedgemaze as they recall their childhood of loving flowers and each other
- So the anger in his eyes when his sister is sold off to the Kaiser. Reminded me of Casval Rem Deikun recognizing that he would never see his mother again and his resulting feelings of revenge lead to him joining the military that he hated and becoming Char Aznable in Gundam and causing massive problems for the Earth Sphere for decades afterwards. Body's ready for Reinhard to ruin the universe Lurking/sketchy
- Even the Statue has hidden cameras in it
- "Hey, look after my little brother, he's a bit nuts."
- Cuts to Reinhard proclaiming that he's going to take over the entire universe while in front of said statue camera

Spoiler:

I actually got a different feeling, that Sieg was going to back up Reinhard no matter what, and that's ultimately going to cost them the Empire and the war because Yang Wen-Li is just a slightly better tactician.

Spoiler:
I could see it going either way on that, but I felt like they were setting it up for Sieg and possibly even Reinhard to have to make a choice on that eventually, confronting the realization that their side ought to be the bad guys and either choosing to believe Reinhard will magically fix all that when he becomes supreme despot, or having to change sides, or even (for Sieg) outright admitting to himself that he's on the wrong side but still sticking with it for Reinhard.
