"Wheel me out to the curb for garbage day"

Completed "Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Season 2"

I've recently started rewatching Skip Beat.  One of my favorite anime of all-time, without question.  I don't understand how it can be so damn funny and yet so dramatic in the space of a heartbeat.  It's just so freaking good.  I really miss anime like this or Nodame Cantabile.  Not many series like that anymore, not with the kind of story that just keeps drawing you in deeper as the character evolves as a person.

Looks like Zombieland Saga is the first of my seasonals to finish up. Really fun anime overall, that last song was crazy! Wasn't expecting Tatsumi to be a high school peer (I think?) of Sakura's, that adds some extra weight to his declaration last episode. Feel like it left a lot of loose ends though, hopefully there isn't much time before this gets a continuation.

Current backlog anime is Kiniro Mosaic. Feels weird seeing me in an anime. I should file a lawsuit on Shinobu for stealing my character. 

Really good show though, kinda reminded me of Yuru Yuri without the love triangles and twice the blondes. And having Chitoge and Erina's voice actresses in the main cast made it even better. I finished season 1 earlier...will probably start season 2 when I get back from Christmas vacation.

Zombieland Saga was a lot of fun and I really hope we get some kind of continuation.  That bit with Tatsumi was definitely a surprise that I didn't see coming.  I was thinking all along that he was in love with Tae-chan.  

Shinobu is definitely your spirit animal.  It's an awesome series and the voice actress for Karen seriously did one of the best jobs I've ever come across as making a character her own.  It's almost iconic at this point.  



I finished SSSS.Gridman yesterday. Overall, it was okay. A visual spectacle with a lot of detail clearly added into it, but unfortunately held back by bland characters with very little noteworthy development. I can understand it was intended to be campy given it was an homage to old kaiju/sentai type shows, but unfortunately that also held it back from being anything memorable. Still, I don't regret watching this one, which is more than I can say about my last few Trigger anime. Awesome OP too!

Anyways, my AOTS goes to Boarding School Juliet as I expected. Really enjoyable rom-com that either met or exceeded my expectations every episode, and had me grinning ear to ear multiple times. The final fight scene was amazing, I love seeing the MCs faking their hate for each other. Definitely planning to rewatch this, and jump into the manga after I catch up on my current backlog series.

Most of my anime this season are continuing into next, nearly half of them actually, which is kinda crazy. Only show I haven't finished is Goblin Slayer, but since I'm not expecting anything big to change there, I'll put together my seasonal list now. If my mind changes I'll add it to my AOTY list in a few days.

Gosh I have Karen's voice in my head constantly after watching it, it just stays with you. Definitely my favorite character, even if I already loved her from the infinite memes of her. Nao-chan is amazing!

The more I think of it, the more I believe Zombieland was a complete dud. I gave it a 9 but I'm strongly considering reducing it to an 8. It had great style but was so incompetently executed in both production and writing. Nothing mattered, nothing was resolved and a crowd staying in an already half collapsed building? It basically went downhill from the first episode with little highlights that just cannot bear the weight of all its faults.

I really wish someone competent handled this new IP.
