I quite often just dip into an anime I've watched before, or watch only part of it, finding this is enough to restore my memory of the whole.
I really like doing rewatches myself. Usually I'll take a show that I binge watched and take it slow the second time; average about .95 episodes of it per day. Recent rewatches include: Kill la Kill
, which I was still pretty alright with the second time through. Nonon is one of my favorite anime characters ever, but otherwise the show never did all that much for me. I like the fact that the whole show revolves around clothing, but too much of it I just find boring. Ever since I was a kid I've really hated it in shows when a protagonist turns evil, only to eventually become good again, so maybe that's why I could never really embrace the series. Who the hell knows?Erased
: A couple years ago rober compared the characters heads to peanuts, but the animation style is probably my favorite thing about this show. The second time through was still a fun and enjoyable watch, but knowing how it would end took a little bit of the fun out of it. Plus, I did feel like a bit of an idiot not realizing who the killer was pretty early on in the series. But then again, I'm an office drone, not Rust Cohle. The ideas of camaraderie and courage that are prevalent throughout the show are things I can still get down with, two years on. Also, the OP is still one of the all time greats.
Right now I'm rewatching Psycho Pass
S1, basically just so I can watch the film(didn't want to watch it without the first season fresh in my mind). I'm just three episodes in, so I'll just say the main girls character design is awesome.
The shows I'm watchin this season:Junji Ito
: That Grease episode was probably the foulest thing I ever watched, haha. The animation is such hot garbage, but man, I will miss this one when it ends next week. Last nights episode was pretty funny: the first segment was about the Supernatural Transfer Student which had an interesting and fun concept, and then the second segment had this piece of crap Scarecrow story that was beyond pointless. Darling the Franxx
, which is now in its character development arc, which I'm kind of "meh" with. I sort of think I already know the characters well enough, but I guess anime is going to anime(I still love the show though). At least this weeks episode did a pretty good job of world building, though it doesn't seem like much a surprise that this world is one in which emotion is missing. Last weeks episode was like the Leliel battle, so that was pretty cool. March Comes in Like a Lion
, seems to have bitten off more than it can chew; there are too many characters! I can't remember all of their flaws and quirks and I'm losing my mind trying to keep everything straight. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THAT GIRL THAT Rei LIKED IN THE FIRST SEASON?? Nah, I'm mostly just messing around, this show is still really good. The previous arc's thing with the old guy carrying all of those hopes and aspirations of his generation was really nicely done.Maerchen Maedchen
went on hiatus and ruined my Thursdays. I guess people were bitching and moaning about the animation, but it's not like this show was trying to be super profound or like a shining example of what the animation medium can be. It's about girls fighting each other as literary characters, people. It should be back this coming Thursday, so I'm glad. Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card
I just caught up on and it's really good. Sakura actually uses the cards she captures, if ya can believe that! I liked the animation style more in the original series, but things change. And plus they brought back the "Leave it to Kero" segment so I can't really complain. CLAMP for life.
I also watched Witch Hunter Robin
(remember that one?) The dude who directed it directed one of my favs, Ergo Proxy
, but I could never really get into this one. I feel like they should have just played this series more straight forward, instead of having these different agencies conspiring against each other for whatever reason. Going into it I never expected Robin to become a bike messenger, so I will give the series that. Try to avoid this one if you can. Watch The Craft
or Flying Witch
instead if ya wanna get yr witch fix.
Caught up with the first couple seasons of My Hero Academia
and really enjoyed it. I could have used less of the main character crying and I wasn't wild about the last arc of the second season(the students v. teachers thing) but otherwise I think this series deserves the hype it gets. All Might is a good dude, for sure. Bakugo is a p.o.s. The series is pretty straightforward on one hand but there's this something pretty profound that I feel is running through it under the surface, though I don't really know what it is. The characters are cool, and it does a good job of playing with your expectations of what super hero stories should be. The half ice, half fire dude is my fav character, and I wish I had his hair. Excited for the third season!
