I'm in the middle of probably my second or third attempt to read Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle the whole way through, and I'm hooked enough to finish it this time, because holy crap, things just got crazy. Fai is still my favorite and this third attempt just cemented it.

The plot is so convoluted I've had to keep track with a flowchart...

This is not new, but I just found out that they recently released volume 1 of RWBY in Japan. Dubbed. In Japanese. With a cast of legit, seasoned voice talent. Which just blows my mind. I'm sure Monty Oum would've been ecstatic.

After watching the first season of Nisekoi, Dogma and I have concluded that Chitoge is one of the most garbage-tier protagonists ever. Tsugumi deserves better.

Spoiler for Nisekoi manga chp 200+:
and I am so freaking assblasted that Raku's actually fallen for her. From where I'm standing, it borders on Stockholm Syndrome. She's abusive. End of.


The real mystery isn't the thing with the locket and keys, it's why anyone puts up with Chitoge.

I don't know if anyone is with me, but does anyone read Liar game? Great manga and somewhat reminds me of Death Note.

Finished Log Horizon and really enjoyed it.

Watching Claymore again because I like strong women and being sad, I guess.

I want to pick that up again. Problem is I have no idea what episode/chapter I stopped at.
Spoiler for Last thing I remember...:
They had just defeated SUPERB (I think) and they realize that their island is just a laboratory for making bigger badder monsters for whatever huge war is going on on the mainland.


EDIT: Having just looked it up, that's actually pretty early on, so I think I'll be good with starting over.

And now it's easy, with all of it being available via Comixology or wait, you mean the anime. Okay.

Finished JoJo's Bizarre Adventure part 5.
I can see why it's everyone's least favorite.

It's upsetting because it's almost like Araki's thought process was, "alright, let's get all the interesting stuff out of the way and then...meh?"

Spoiler for For example:
Like, whoa, the main character is Dio's SON.
But then the rest is like, yeah so? And is never touched upon again.
His stand power is cool though.

Spoiler for Part 5:
It's probably so he could have a new protagonist who was a Jojo but didn't have to really jump forward in time. 3-6 gets a little compressed because it starts in the eighties, and then you don't have a ton of places to go.


AKA: We went modern too fast.

Went to boot up Crunchyroll and find something to watch. I saw I was following something called Erased, because I guess Kaze was watching it on my Xbox at PAX? Started watching that and it's interesting so far.

Spoiler for In addition:
It's pretty much the same as Josuke being Joseph's illegitimate son. The only reason they could kind of do things with Joseph is because he wasn't stone cold dead like Dio. He can also be seen as a twist on Dio. Gio sought power to enable him to stop the drug trade in Italy, but also for power in general. They both had similar upbringings, except Dio's anger was allowed to fester and it turned him into a narcissistic monster. Gio pulled away from that.


Spoiler for Stone Ocean Spoilers:
Then there is the whole all the sons of Dio being drawn to Florida. So Gio isn't the only one, he's just the one who got his shit together and didn't end up a broken human being.



I will defend to the death Giorno's status as "not shit". This is the hill I have set myself on.

I watched at least the first episode of everything this season, which I've never really done before. I ended up sticking with these shows:

Erased
Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
Konosuba
Myriad Colors Phantom World
Prince of Stride: Alternative

Short form:

Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara
Ojisan and Marshmallow
Ooya-san wa Shishunki!
Please tell me! Galko-chan

Notably had to drop Funimation exclusives since I don't have a sub. But, I liked watching anime this way and will probably continue to do so in the future.

Erased went in exactly the direction I expected it to.

Sucks being a 29 year old trapped in an 11 year old's body when you really have to defend yourself.

There's a lot to like about Erased, but probably my favorite part is just that there are no previews. Just Cliffhanger hard cut into ED, episode over. I wish more anime would do that.

The cliffhangers kill me. Especially the most recent one.

Bored and looking for anything to try, so I went back to give Log Horizon a second shot. Kind of in a trapped-in-an-MMORPG subgenre mood.

I love this show; slow start but ultimately pretty good.

Right now I'm watching Mushi-shi, and Derek got me started on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure from the beginning.

I'm also going to keep up with the Ace Attorney anime.
