    The boss of their underground group has a japanese streetshop for ramen. Also they play baseball on weekend as a team of the same name against another likewise rival team.

    Found this list while roaming. It's been a decade since I last watched it. It's still Skorea's best pseudo fantasy/mythic history show imho. Unsurprisingly the actors are one of the best paid even if their wage is 100 times less than those in the states or west for that matter. And like the japanese they broke bones and stuff while making it (since they do their own stunts).

    I think Robert Conrad is one of the few American actors who ever did their own stunts.
    IIRC he injured himself during a bar fight in The Wild Wild West.

    Monday I re-watched episode 5 of Brynhildr in the Darkness and totally forgot that
    Sentai had locked their subtitles so you couldn't turn them off and watch raw.Oh...well! Laughing
    Any way I was going to watch either episode 4 or episode 5 because of Kotori being introduced,
    but decided on episode 5 because it centers more around her.She gets introduced to the rest of the
    Astronomy Club who are suspicious of her motives for wanting to join(they think she's a spy from the
    Lab).
    Kana gets a prediction that looks like Kotori will kill Neko and then it changes to look like she will
    kill Ryota instead.It takes place at the lake so Ryota says all they have to do is avoid the lake.
    The gang goes out to do some star gazing and Ryota finds out that Kotori is a Witch because she
    has an harnest like the other girls.
    They finally reveal they're Witches like her and she demonstrates her power,which is teleportation.
    Everyone is underwhelmed.
    Then they go back to the observatory where Kazumi gets a call from a friend who has been chased by a AA+ Witch.
    Neko goes out to help followed by Kotori and Ryota.
    Kazumi uses her powers to hack into the cameras at the park..but they're too wait as their
    friend is killed in front of their eyes...

    Tuesday episodes 5&6 of Magical Witch Punie-chan In episode 5 Punie and her friends are
    having midterms.She wants to impress them by all much she already knows but Anengo points out
    that that's just you learn in Elementary School. Punie isn't too worried as she has a plan.
    Unfortunately the class has a substitute that is notoriously strict when it comes to cheating.
    But when she's distracted Anengo and her gang go to work but the sub sees them cheating and
    when her back is turned Punie gets to plan A: alas! the Potato tells her since the vegetables
    are her puppets they can only know what she knows and the questions are therefore meaningless
    to them as well.
    Then Punie goes to Plan B:Payatan and a direct air raid on the school! Laughing This gives Punie enough time and distraction to switch tests with poor Testuko who finds out she got a 0 later...
    in episode 6 Punie and Testuko decide to help Anengo get a date.
    Not only that but they decide since the rides at the amusement park are dull they will make them
    a bit more thrillng using Punie's magic.
    Unfortunately Punie makes them too exciting and Anengo's date at the end vows to never go on any more dates.
    This makes Anengo worse than before as Punie points out at the end.

    Wed. episode 8 of Please Teacher Mizuho and Kei get up late and barely make it to school,but
    Kei gets punished by standing in the hall during class.Later Kioshi is encouraged by Ichigo and Kaede
    to "go for it" with Kei and she decides to call him up.
    After she calls to see Kei,Matagu calls to ask Mizuho out.
    Kei goes to meet Kioshi at the train depot while Mizuho meets Matagu at the park.
    Kioshi finally confesses to Kei but he tells her he loves another girl.She apparently takes it well.
    He runs off to find Misuho and finds her sitting on a park bench helping Matagu with his homework.
    Meanwhile Kioshi winds up going back to school where she has a talk with Yamada...

    Th. episode 8 of Nadeisco the ship comes out of the Chuilp in the middle of a battle.
    Akito,Megumi,Yukari and Inez have all mysteriously asleep in the observation deck and Ruri
    wakes them up.Yukari is shocked to see Akito holding hands (in his sleep)with Inez.
    Yukari orders the cannons to fire but accidentally winds up damaging as many of the UEF
    fleet as the enemy and gets hollered at by the fleet admiral.
    They send the aestvalis out to scout and Akito gets into trouble but is saved by a mystery
    aestvalis.It turns out the pilot is from the Nadeisco's new sister ship the Cosmos,it aslo turns out
    while they were in the Chuilp eight months passed by.
    They send the aestvalis out for another scout and Akito gets attacked by a grasshopper
    mecha.It sends him out of range and Megumi and Yukari go off after him.
    There isn't enough oxygen for the three of them in his aestvalis but he comes up with a plan.
    When they finally get back the head of Nergal arrives with his secretary who is announced as the new co-navigator.
    She and the new aesvalis pilot are rather interested in Akito;especially after she shows him
    video him vanishing right when the ship entered the Chuilp!...

    Fate/EXTRA - Last Encore ep.1-4
    This series seems to continue from Fate Grand Order-First Order. In FGO humans use (alien) tech and selected children. Here humanity had build a super computer on the moon which holds digitized human souls. In a virtual environment those souls get selected for the holy grail war. From the very beginning of the story this world for reasons unknown is broken and a thousand years has passed since. The year is 3020 this suggests this uber tech system was created before 2020... I got more than a few issue with the times given: 1. too early build 2. when seemingly at least tens of thousands of masters got selected by the time it had failed. And only 1k years had passed since.
    Anyway, it seems to imitate the monogatari series depiction/character format. I think it's an average show.

    On another note how big is the monogatari series? From my count it's like 6 already. Since each one comes with another name+monogatari it's hard to track. I haven't seen anything beyond No.3.

    Friday watched episode 21 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 and now down to crunch time
    as the Knight Sabers and their allies are the only ones seemingly left in Tokyo outside of Galatea and her Voomer minions.After their tangle with the giant Voomer everyone returns to Slyvia's place where
    they rest and recoup.
    During the night Mackie gets off telling Nene he has some work to do.She follows and watches as
    he tells her he has to do some rebooting.
    At daybreak the alarm goes off and they find themselves surrounded by Voomers even though the
    cameras aren't showing any.
    Then Nene says that they're in the pit with them and they see them coming through the pool,which wasn't covered...

    Saturday episode 3 of Photon Lashara goes in search of Papachan.Meanwhile Aun and Keyne
    argue over Photon.Photon gets hungry but every time he tries to get something to eat Papachan
    appears ruining the meal.
    Aun and Keyne decide to get into a cooking contest to see which one's cooking Photon prefers,the loser has to get off the ship.
    One of the Pochis is kicked out by Papachan and discovers his hideous secret...

    Sunday RWBY S1 chapters 9 & 10,basically the first season finale.Weiss reveals her prejudice against the Faunus and says it's because they keep attacking her family holdings.Blake finally reveals she is a Faunus and she was part of White Fang before it became violent.When it did she turned her
    back on them and decided to become a Huntress instead.
    The girls also meet Penny for the first time.

    Great lines: "I'm Combat Ready!" Penny on if she can fight.
    "Do you mean she's really a man?" Penny when Ruby tells her that Blake is
    hiding something from them. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Monday re-watched Wizard Barristers episode 8 dubbed instead of raw.This is mainly because
    of the way it seems Sentai lock their subs lately,so I decided to watch the dub.The episode is the one where the Butterfly Law Firm goes to visit another Benmashi law firm in America (Boston to be exact).
    While there Cecile is told that she can go see her family in Canada; but the problem is she doesn't have the money to fly,so Natsuna is volunteered tpo go with her.This is because she has an International Driver's License.On the way up they expierence numerous car troubles and meet a
    hitchhiker from Japan.
    I think later on in the series it's revealed that she's actually some kind of spy that was planted to
    watch Cecile.
    Any ways they finally make it to Canada and on the way Cecile and Natsuna learn about each other
    and why they wanted to become Benmashis.
    At the first place they stop to eat an escaped con suddenly appears and terrorizes the place...

    Tuesday episdoes 7 & 8 of Magical Witch Punie-Chan the finale of the series.
    The first is a spoof on the Japanese Sports Day Festival.Angeno is so certain that Punie is going
    to throw something in the works,especially since she's on the Executive Committee,that she becomes rather paranoid.
    But everything goes smoothly (oddly enough)and even Anengo is now relaxed.
    But then comes the finale and Anengo's fears finally come to fruition as Punie has turned it into a real war game!....
    In episode 8 Punie's two younger twin sisters use a spell that turn them into sexy adults that all the boys are crazy over.
    They use their new height and strength to beat up on Punie.But unknown to them she has been
    preparing for just this moment for the last 8 years: "But we're only 8!" the twins reply realizing
    that Punie has been thinking ahead all this time for this very moment.
    She eventually beats them and her submission holds force the spell to reverse itself and
    they face the ultimate puhishment:TICKLING! Laughing Laughing

    Welp now that Punie-Chan is over next week is the start of Arpeggio of Blue Steel.

    Wed. episode 9 of Please Teacher this is the one where Kei learns that Ichigo also suffers from
    Stand Stills,but that hers lasted 3 years longer than his and that she is really 21.
    He also learns that she was behind Kioshi's decision to confess to Kei.He decides that for Ichigo's sake he has to give up his life with Mizuho but when he tells her Mizuho reminds him that they both knew
    it wasn't going to be easy.
    He reminds her that one of these days her mission on Earth will be completed and they won't see
    each other again.
    It's hard but they end up agreeing it's for the best for the time being...

    Th. episode 9 of Nadeisco the new admiral gives the Nadeisco crew a new assignment:
    they are to search for and rescue a goodwill ambassador that was stranded somewhere in the
    middle of the Bering Sea.
    The weather is bad though so Megumi invites Akito to a simulated school setting in VR.
    She used it in order to try to get his attention.
    Meanwhile Yukari is down that Akito has been talking to her lately.Left alone on the bridge she
    accidentally starts firing off everything and that alerts the enemy.While the rest of the
    Aestvalis pilots are sent out to fight the enemy,Akito searches for the goodwill ambassador but
    then he doesn't come back in time and everyone gets worried.
    When he finally radios back that he's found the ambassador everyone gathers to have a look.
    But it turns out the ambassador is a:POLAR BEAR! Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Thanks Zinv,long time no see.

    Friday rewatched the dub of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040the Knight Sabers and the rest discover that they may be the only humans left in Tokyo.
    But when they make it to the safety of a park(the dragon lines couldn't get that far because of the waterline)the are nearly attacked by a group of homeless men.
    Once everything is calmed down the two groups share drinks together and Slyia tells the men they
    need to get out of Tokyo.
    Meanwhile Galatea continues her manipulation of the Voomers.
    Mackie goes to the van and Nene follows only to find he is in some type of trance uploading
    Slyia's personal information...

    Saturday episode 4 of Photon.Photon rescues Pochi #1.Then later the group finally
    arrive at the village they were headed for.Before going into the local hot springs though Photon
    leaves the group.He arrives just in time to rescue Princess Lashara from the same bandits that
    attacked Aun in episode 1.
    He takes Princess Lashara to the hot springs.
    Papacha is working in the hot springs with the Pochi and sees his chance to get even with Photon
    but they refuse because they happen to all be female!
    In the end the shenanigans of the group end up wrecking the hot springs and the fat woman who
    owns and runs the place is pissed.
    Photon recognizes her though and she recognizes him....it's Aun's Big Sister!
    Aun in despair wonders what happened to her once beautiful older sister..

    Sunday episode 1 of Dragon Half Mink is wanting to see her idol Dick Saucer sing.
    The king wants Mink's dad dead because he fell in love with the Red Dragon(Mink's mom)
    that he was supposed to kill.
    Mink is captured but defeats the king who gives her fake Dick Saucer tickets.
    Princess Vina mocks Mink and tells her that Sick Saucer would never go for a Dragon Half.
    But Princess Vina is a Slime Half herself.
    Mink and her friends set out to find the magical elixir that will make her fully human...

    Looked up Waiting in the Summer sounds like it would be a good go with with
    Please Teacher.Is the main female character from the same planet as Mizuho?

    Monday re-watched the raw of Umi Monogatari I also re-watched episode 1 of the
    Marine's What Is This? comedy minisodes.
    Plus the trailer for Sketchbook Full of Colors.
    The episode I watched was the one where Kanon has to do her duty as a fortune teller during the
    town's street festival;but when she sees Suzuki walking toward her,she makes Marine do it instead.
    Later they're attacked as they walk home but Marine can't fend the Enemy off by herself and
    Kanon has to decide to fight with her,which she finally does after reluctantly running back
    to help Marine.
    But Marine's happiness at seeing Kanon turns Urine bitter with jealousy..

    Tues. episode 1 of Arpeggio of the Blue SteelThe main part was a flashback to seven
    years ago after the UN Fleet had been defeated by the Fleet of Fog.It tells how Iona,the
    avatar of the 1-491 submarine had approached Gunzhou and told him she was ordered to obey
    him.
    Three of the other ships are also seen toward the end of the episode.Takao looks like she might
    be a problem,but Maya seems to be more brat than nuisance.Also is there any reason there's
    a piano on her?
    Overall episode 1 thought was a good start...
    Wish Techtv and it's Anime Unleashedblock were still around as it would've made for a great
    fit for it.

    Wed. episode 10 of Please Teacher. Mizuho and Kei try to cope with their break up.
    Kei spends time with Kioshi and she tells him if they can't be lovers than they at least can be
    friends.
    Later she follows him as he goes to see Ichigo and misunderstands what's going on.
    She runs off and Kei asks Ichigo where he can find her to apologize.
    Kioshi asks him to kiss her but Mizuho shows up at the same time and runs off;Kei follows her
    leaving Kioshi confused until Ichigo has a talk with her to clear things up and they both realize
    Kei is in love with their teacher ( not knowing they're secretly married).
    Mizuho has Marie teleport her to the beach and Kei has him do the same thing for him.
    Mizuho tries to run away but Kei catches her and they both confess they love each other,
    but Kei ends up in another Stand Still...

    Th. episode 10 of Nadeisco the main plot supposedly is about the crew finding and
    deactivating another Chuilp but that fast becomes secondary to the subplot which is of course
    Akito having more girl problems! Laughing Laughing
    The Nadeisco track the Chuilp to an otherwise deserting looking island and the crew decide to have
    fun on the beach.
    Akito ends up wondering off and meeting a blonde girl who he calls "Aqua".
    She takes her to her home and tells him the 'tragic story of her life'.
    Megumi and Yurika finally track them down and Akito can't move because "Aqua" has given
    him a nerve suppressor.
    The Nadeisco finally destroys the Chuilp and takes off but leaves the Admiral behind with "Aqua"
    still looking for her 'tragic ending' (the girl was totally insane).
    Oh...and yeah...the entire time Yurika and Megumi were trying to best each other at who could
    posion feed Akito with the better meal. In the end Ryoko joins in and the three
    girls chase the por guy around the ship with steaming plates of their home made poison food....

    Comment: And now we know why her name is Ryoko!

    I got the BD of Kampfer Saturday just in time for my birthday! Very Happy

    Friday re-watched the dub of episode 23 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 the Knight Sabers
    go to confront Galatea personally but she erects a shield of mini Voomers so it is hard for them
    to get through.Mackie uses his connection to Galatea to help sneak them through,but they are
    faced with some more traps.
    Slyia leaves the others to confront Galatea,but the latter nearly assimilates her after she
    tries to destroy her with her blade.
    Galatea also mimmicks Mackie's voice to confuse her;fortunately Priss and the others arrive
    just in time.
    But they can't stop Galatea and she uploads her personality into the main Genom computer
    frame and as the Knight Sabers escape they see her giant image appear,replacing the top
    several stories of the Genom building and it lifts off to space to finish Galatea's grand scheme...

    Saturday episode 5 of Photon Keyne senses that her grandfather's ship is still active
    and she and the others take off toward the volcano.Photon and Pochi get separated from
    Keyne and Aun.They're confronted by Lashara who is still in love with Papacha.She wants to
    stop Photon because that is what Papacha wished her to do;then he appears and reveals that
    he never cared for her and the Aho bands she wears will kill her once she's killed the other two.
    Photon manages to get rid of the bands before they go off.
    Elsewhere in the volcano,Aun and Keyne have found the latter's grandfather's ship but it is now
    under the control of Papacha...

    Sunday episode 2 of Dragon Half ok..so ..basically this whole episode is simply a parody of
    all those Dragonball tournament style sagas.Mink enters the tournament to get the prize money without knowing the whole thing is of course the king's latest attempt at trapping/killing
    her.As things work out she winds up winning the tournament but not without loosing a bit of her
    dignity as in the end she looses her top!

    So next week on to Gunbuster 2:Diebuster

    Monday re-watched ova 3 of Utararewamono and again I forgot because it's Sentai the
    sub was locked.Any how this was the one where Touka and Arururu go fishing with Hakuoro.
    He has to go back but before he does he tells Touka to watch after Arururu and also her
    tells her the story of 'the guardian of the river' a large fish which he (jokingly) orders her to
    catch and bring back with her.
    Touka being Touka she takes the order a)literally and b) seriously.
    The rest of the episode is her various attempts at trying to catch the fish and then her and
    Arururu trying to get home.
    Obororo adds some unwitting comic scenes as he and Dori go looking for the two lost girls and
    spends much of his time simply watching Touka fail.But karma catches up with him when the
    fish keeps flopping on top of him.
    And then too there turns out to be a giant ogre..

    Tuesday episode 2 of Arpeggio in this episode Iona, Gunzou and the rest of the 1-401 crew
    are up against Taokou as 'she' uses a typhoon to try to stop them from reaching their destination.
    At first it appears that 'she' has the upper hand until Gunzou realizes she's being helped by a
    submarine (turns out to be the 501) that's been hiding under her shadow. When they attack
    using a weapon they picked up from an earlier victor it forces Taokou to change position making the
    501 vulnerable.
    Taokou is forced then to lock her weapons and the 1-401 is able to pass safely.
    'She' wonders why Gunzou didn't destroy her when he had the chance..

    Wed. Please Teacher episode 11, Kei continues in his stand still and Mizuho tries to find a way to get him out of it.Kioshi and Ichigo go and visit Kei's uncle and aunt and reveal that they know what's going on.
    In his stand still Kei sees the girl that whose face he can't remember and she wants him to stay.
    Mizuho finds a way of entering and talks to him; he slowly recovers his memory and agrees to
    return to her.
    It's revealed before he does that the girl he couldn't remember was actually his older sister.
    Later he wakes up in his old room not knowing what happened.
    He's late for school and as he and his friends walk past the railroad tracks he turns thinking he
    heard someone.Mizuho waves by and vanishes...

    Thursday episode 11 of Nadesico the latest assignment is to destroy a powerful graviton
    cannon.But the Nadesico is hit before it can get too close so the decision is made to send out the
    Aestavelis instead.Akito ends up being voted the "Quartermaster".
    The raid isn't as easy as it appeared as they are soon attacked by an unexpected force of tanks.
    But dealing with the tanks depletes their power supplies and so only two Aestavelis are capable of
    making the final assault the others stay behind to back them up by fighting the tanks.
    Akito finally is chosen to make the attempt on the cannon but wasted too much of his ammo earlier.
    But help arrives and they defeat the Jovian Lizards cannon...

    Galatea;back on Earth Slyia is still concerned over Mackie...

    Keyne gets abducted a couple more times, but in the end Papacha finds everything he did futile since the computer will no longer accept Keyne as the key(when Photon wrote "Baka" on her forehead he changed the code).
    The Pochis get their revenge on Papacha and Photon writes "Baka" on all the girls head making
    Aun and Lashara unhappy: "I don't want to be part of an harem!" Laughing

    Lal'C follows and Nono tears off her top to show she's "Topless" too...and like I said the last time
    I watched..."That's NOT what Topless means Nono!"
    And you can see Lal'C thinking the same thing! Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Netflix had released some "original" animes:

    B - The Beginning
    Some kind of paranormal & Sentai/Avenger type. I don't have the impression it's a good one but it has the action part covered.

    Sword Gai
    Looks like Garo or suited Sentai kind of show with the sword bearer theme. Swords who have tasted blood become sentient and choose/take over their bearer and go wild. It's a possession that dooms the bearer; consumes them in the end.

    Mahou Shoujo Ore
    A magical girl with broad shoulders...
    Looks like a parody show ala Is This a Zombie/Korezom but leaning heavily on Sailor Moon.

    Anyway,

    Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card ep.12
    I dunno the show seems to take its sweet time. It's more like Sailor Moon in terms of progress. The BGM seems similar, too.

    GIRLS und PANZER das FINALE (ep.1 extra long)
    Another entertaining funny one. I had doubt but it was still worth the time. I wonder if it's continuing or just releasing short stories...

    Is GUP UND Panzer das Finale Season 2? And if so will it be released on DVD/BD?

    Monday I didn't watched any anime but instead saw Captain America:Civil War the basic plot
    was that Ironman wanted Bucky to be turned in for murder but Cap was certain that his old friend and
    sidekick had been framed.He and Bucky wind up having to go to Siberia to find proof that there were
    more Winter Soldiers produced.
    Any way the main reason why Tony wants to bring Bucky in is he thinks he was responsible for his
    parents murders.Also the new Spider-man is introduced.
    Great line:
    Spidey:" Did you ever see that old movie The Empire Strikes Back?"
    Rhodey: " Where'd you find this guy?"
    Tony: " I didn't carbon date him...I dug him up." Laughing

    Tuesday episode 3 of Arpeggio of Blue Steel the 401 and crew go to ship dock to get
    refurbished and re-supplied.Gunzou is supposed to meet with his contact in the government but
    takes a side trip to the cemetery to visit the war memorial with Iona.
    Meanwhile the rest of the crew is captured by the army and then Gunzou and Iona are also.
    They're taken to see a leader of a government fraction that wants to take the 401 into their
    own hands.
    Gunzou realizes what that means and has Iona activate the 401.
    Elsewhere Kongou is having a meeting with one of the other Metal Models from the Fleet.
    She decides to send Kirishima and Haruna against Iona.
    Takao at the same time is shown walking on a pier where she meets the Metal Models for the
    400 and 402.She confirms that she is defecting to join Gunzou...

    thoughts: for a non-human Takao gets all girly over Gunzou even having daydreams about
    him being her captain! Laughing Laughing
    According to the wiki the overall Commander of the Fleet of Fog is IIRC Yamato and Kongou is only the second in command.
    To show the 401's 'belly' Iona raises her top slightly.Also when they're doing the scans of the sub
    she says it 'tickles'...

    episode 12 of Please Teacher! on Wed. basically the finale as episode 13 is an extra.
    Mizuho gets sentenced to permanent arrest on her home world and her creditials as an observer
    taken away after TPTB find out about her relationship with Kei.
    Back on Earth the gang is watching Yamada make his big attempt at the non-powered flight competition.At first it looks like he fails but then he gets back into the air and ends up winning.
    Mizuho's mom and sister manage to sneak her through the blockade and enable her to see Kei one
    last time;but he seems not to remember.Then when he helps her move back in he asks:
    "Are you here to observe us again?"
    When she does a double take he replies that he knew it was her and she gets miffed,but then
    agrees to marry him for good;Kei's aunt and uncle look like this when they hear the news:
    affraid

    Th. episode 12 of Nadesico for some reason when another attack occurs the Aestvalis and
    Nadesico defense systems suddenly target the UEAF ships(plus ammo dump that Akito
    wasn't aiming at.Jun tries to go out and stop everyone,but gets injured with whiplash because he didn't have a pilot suit on.
    Later on the UEAF sends a team to inspect the ship's computer and they come to the conclusion that there needs to be a whole new memory.
    Ruri protests that would mean the computer wouldn't be the same but they ignore her protest.
    The chief mechanic,Ruri and Yukari hatch a plan to fix the computer memory with the help of
    Akito(who protests of course):he goes into VR with a mini version of Ruri as a guide to fix
    the computer's memory by pruning off the affected portions before it can be totally deleted.
    The plan works until the computer in order to protect itself produces a copy of Gaiganker 5.
    Akito has to fight it in order to finis the job;but it works out in the end and the trouble shooters
    from the UEAF are no wiser to what the Nadesico crew has done..

    Legend of the Galactic Heroes-Die Neue These PV ep.1
    Episode 1 to air in 48 hours.
    Looks like it's a reboot & rewrite on events in between from previous and continuation of all those newer OVAs. I'm a bit disappointed that it's not some newer continuation. In the long run all these rewrite would be come as messy as all those Gundam UC side stories. It's ridiculous how they stuff more and more into that one year war.
    The ship designs are more like tenchi/Sol Bianca/Vandread/wingy-art and similar to the art from the mangaka doing the reboot of the Seikai manga. So the designs are more artsy than technically reasonable. It's ok I guess but that's my taste.
    Anyway, the story is the same as the original anime. Kircheis and Reinhard prepare for invasion through the corridor (Battle of Astate) and intend to split the superior Alliance forces... Lapp doesn't get his tragic death so I suppose the show is abridged and more about the events and Reinhard & Yang. Looks like 3 original episodes in one... at this rate the whole show could be 48 episodes long. I don't think I'll lose my love for the original.
    The Alliance uniform is now blue instead of green and their insignia looks like pentagram on golden swirling pentagon star. Mad

    I read at the NHK website today that Case Closed is coming out of hiatus finally as
    Gosho Aoyama says he is feeling better and can start working on the manga again. He wrote a
    hand written letter yesterday and had to end it with "this is not a joke" because of it being
    April Fools Day.

    Friday watched episode 25 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 Priss,Linna and Nene
    race against time to reach the Umbrella before Galatea does but fail.
    In their efforts to stop her both Linna and Nene are sent spiraling toward Earth in their hardsuits
    while Priss is left to face Galatea for the final confrontation by herself..

    Saturday episodes 1 & 2 of Season 2 of RWBY The new semester is about to begin and
    Teams JNPR and RWBY celebrate it by getting into an epic food fight. Later Ruby meets two
    newcomers who have come to take part in the tournament (really two of Torchwick's people).

    Sunday saw episode 2 of Diebuster Lal'C is taken to be debriefed by finds out that the
    commander of the fleet giving her the debriefing has a grudge against the Topless.He tells her
    that they can defeat the next Monster that attacks by themselves but only find out that they
    do need Topless help.
    Nono is seated in Lal'C's mecha when she calls for it and they fight together again.
    Later Nono is introduced to the rest of the Topless by Lal'C as the new trainee.

    What was interesting about this is it reveals that Nono is a robot but she doesn't know what
    she is. She only knows that she has no memory of her birth or who her parents or family are..

    Yeah, Case Closed continues towards the 900 episode mark. Honestly, I lost track somewhere around 200-300. I bet Naruto/Boruto combined will reach 1000. I liked Bleach more than Naruto but even so I didn't go beyond season 3 of 14?. I think I would be happy for the ones I like to get to 100 but beyond 200 is just overkill. I think Sailor Moon is the only large anime series I ever finished despite its 250+ size. Star Trek is the biggest series I ever finished with what? about 700 episodes?. I would like to finish Dr. Who but that will take another decade or two or so.

    Killing Bites
    In the end our average joe hero gets killed by his Therianthrope partner after managing to survive and achieve victory.
    Overall, it's something for the action fans but no real story. It's like all those fighting / killing contest animes. Not worth it.

    Garo - Vanishing Line
    Story and side stories are typical Garo sentai. So-so. It depends on your taste.

    Koi wa Ameagari no You ni
    It definitely falls under the literature anime with outward romance appearance. Well, it's too specific for me. If you have a hand for art and japanese culture you may like it but it depends on your taste.

    Darling in the FranXX ep.12 on-going
    So far we got a glimpse of 21th remains and hints that contemporary humans are a dying species while the more human pilots aka parasites are saurian-human hybrids. Except for certain artistics it's a solid good show.

    Kokkoku
    In the end we come back full circle to the beginning. A lot of the paranormal mysteries remain unanswered, though. I suppose the manga or novel has more in store. It's an ok show but could be better imho.

    Sora yori mo Tooi Basho
    For one day Mari runs away from school and home (her ordinary life) to travel and ends up returning from the Southpole. Another travel show for girls. It's interesting, sometimes entertaining.

    Yuru Camp
    Girl stuff and camping. A typical tourist japanese regional advertising show.
    You are probably better off with a Morning Girl/Asadora drama show.

    New anime coming. I looked around mangas and anime this weekend. I got to say the harvest was bad. For some my eyes hurt and just thinking about some made my brain rot. Some that I thought was for a mature audience turned downright dumb annoyingly dumb while some I thought was so-so turned out acceptable to good. Most that failed were the experimental kind where the authors obviously was unable to go beyond his initial idea; unable to flesh out his universe; go in circle; lost track etc. In a way similar to Disney's Star Wars shows/movies for example the latest movie: in the last sequence Admiral Hodo jumped toward the enemy fleet destroying it. So why didn't she sent the other two to do that in the first place and save us all the cumbersome story/movie altogether. Laughing Or Star Wars Rebels where they used a rigged Tie Fighter to explode in the enemy hangar and then at the end used the very same already blown-up Tie to escape. Except for the actions the new Star Wars movies aren't worth watching. Although I think Rogue One was worth it because it filled a hole but itself had plenty of fail (due to rewriting history).

    Uchuu Senkan Tiramisu/Space Battleship Tiramisu
    An anime for the weird Japanese Otaku mind. I want to forget I ever saw it.

    Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi
    Aoi is kidnapped to the Ayakashi realm to marry and ogre (god) because her deceased grandfather was in debt. Hunger and food are prominent themes in the show. I'm not into Inn/food themed anime shows but this one might be good.

    Legend of the Galactic Heroes-Die Neue These ep.1
    Now that I got a good look I don't like the new art for the characters. Although, many supporting characters got better detail drawing the main ones don't fit. Especially Fahrenheit, he's supposed to be a younger man than the rest of our heroes but here he's like Samson from Seikai. It's just missing his dynamic and fresh image in body and mind. Merkatz on the other hand looks way too young. And frankly, Kircheis and Reinhard their faces are practically the same if you take away their hair (and eye color).
    Anyway, the show has more technical details than the original show. I know the novels have more much more details but dunno about the difference to this show show. They used an armor piercing shot which looks more like a shrapnel shot than cluster or shotgun bird shot. They didn't used photon torpedoes here. Also it looks like the Brunehild has something like a captain's yacht attached to the underside at 1/3 length from the front.
    Battle of Astarte
    While the Alliance forces are divided on order to encircle the imperial fleet, Reinhard orders his fleet to attack them individually as his outnumbers them one-on-one. He jams their communication and the incompetent Alliance gets beaten easily. (They don't have laser comms...) And since ships are waiting for the order to raise shields the enemy barrage takes them all out.

    Next episode: Yang's POV.


    Fate Extra Last Encore ep.9
    In this episode the greatest master in the history of the grail war tells her story and reveals Saber's identity. Saber was once the most infamous emperor in western history: N. Claudius

    I Won't lie, the new star wars movies have it fail moments.
    However, there are also moments that I love.
    (also her using warp to devastate the fleet, we need more info on that. As it stands why the fk does no one ever do it, because it a terrifying tactic... However, no one seems to do it in star wars, which means either was a ass-pole and can't actually be done or only big enough ships could possible do it. Which means those smaller side ones would be useless and no one want to sacrifice a very massive freaking ship)
    However, moments like at the start of the movie.
    I freaking cried hard in the movie theaters. Seeing how desperate she was to drop the bomb, even through she knew she die.
    Also then it did what like no other movie(at lest what I've seen). Which is where the hero's go off the rails and disobey orders. In almost ever movie, it never shows the consequences of there action.
    As well as no matter how crazy it is, it always work.
    So yes, I am enjoying the new star wars movies.
    Unlike 1-3, which still makes me cringe hard.


    Now about anime,,,,,,, Have you watch Last girl tour?

    Also Disney have torn the original star wars lore to parts, they did it right as they got the rights to it.
    I was upset at first, I loved a lot of the old star wars.
    However, I came to peace with it. Way before rogue one came out.
    So the parts where they rewrite parts of what happen didn't bother me at all.
    I went in knowing it would rewrite it.
    Because of this, Rogue one was a truly enjoyable movie as well.
    Actually I loved, loved Rogue one....I love movies that make me cry,,,,

    No but I have heard about it.

    Also I think I heard of Darling in the Franxx, but rather hard to tell sometimes which ones
    I've actually heard about and which just sound familiar.

    Monday I re-watched episode 10 of Fushigi Yugi for my Monday Raw viewing.This is the one
    where Miaka goes off to look for Yui after she learns she's back.Tamhome of course has to chase after her.It's also the introduction episode for one of the coolest villains in all of anime:Nakago.
    All teary when Yui and Miaka finally meet. Though of course the irony is that this is the set up
    for Nakago manipulating Yui to become the Priestess of Seiryu.

    Tuesday episode 4 of Arpeggio of the Blue Steel Kirishima and Haruna attack while Goshou
    tries to battle them. Haruna decides to take to Iona before they destroy the 401 in order to understand why she's siding with humans.
    At the climax of the battle Haruna and Kirishima combine,Goshou uses that to his advantage and
    orders the attack when their metal models are concentrating on their own attack.
    Kirishima is sunk and Haruna is set flying.
    In the epilog a young girl finds Haruna lying in a barnlike building.

    Kirishima seems to have really lost it emotionally during the heat of the battle,which even
    Haruna noted.
    So far between Takao and Iona as to favorite.

    Last girl tour/Shojo Shumatsu Ryoko
    Aired about one season ago. It's a journey anime of two girls. The setting is similar to the Blame universe and other classics but involves aliens war). Other than that it's also a journey of self-discovery and relationships. It's good. It's different than your usual anime so it may need some time to get to you.

    Darling in the Franxx
    is still airing and just at half way. It's only now getting into the main arc. It was kind of slow in getting around to show the world while also drawing relationships, and the trouble/conflicts.
