It's new! It's new, and I love it! I want to pat its fluffy ears and rub its mane in my face and scratch myself with its dewclaws and tusks! Beloved new topic, be mine! Be mine forever, or at least until I tire of you.

Last thing I watched was Spookingtons' Halloween 2017 video. Spookingtons is the best YouTube channel no one but me loves. It's where Hsu and Chan live. Hsu and Chan. Can this video truly have less than a thousand views? I'm bewildered!

FUNNY YOU MENTION REBOOTS for you see I watched the pilot to the new Card Captor Sakura! I'd already read the first chapter of the new manga after totally not binge watching the original CCS while on medical leave last summer and it was a nice refresher.

I wish You Yu Hakusho got a reboot. That'd be crazy.

Last thing I watched was a bunch of SA2B Hero Story speedrun attempts.

I learned that there's been a new skip in the Crazy Gadget level (previously there was a skip that was creatively named "Crazy Gadget Skip"). This skip is called Crazy Gadget Skip Skip. This is probably old news but I never knew that's what CGSS stood for before now and I can't get over it.

10/10 watching experience for that tidbit alone. Even tho strimmer didn't pb, smh

So I started watching 'Wakfu' on the train out to Dakota last week. Eight(?) episodes in, and I like it lots so far. It's imaginative, and the animation is almost scarily good for a teevee show.

I LOVE WAKFU AND YOU JUST REMINDED ME I NEED TO RE-BINGE IT ALL BECAUSE I WAS CAUGHT UP AGES AGO BEFORE IT FINISHED!!!!!!!

last thing i watched was part of a paper mario all cards speedrun. i like this category a lot. as much as i appreciate all the glitch-hunting and technical skips used in any% and other categories, i do appreciate watching runners play more of the game while still going fast lol

i should listen to my own recommendations, dang

out of curiosity what language are you watching in? years ago there was an english dub in the works but **** if I know if it ever actually became a thing. I hated Tristepin's dub voice, plus watching it in french was a good excuse to 'work on my french' (lmaooooo right), so that was clearly my language of choice.

Watched the first episode in English, then switched to French+subtitles from the second ep on. Like the French version better (English Yugo had kind of a dumb, off-putting voice).

Nice of Netflix to put in multiple language tracks. Some services are a little remiss about that (Hulu only gots the dub version of 'Princess Tutu'. Hmm).

So I've watched some of the new MST3K.

...you know, I don't like it very much. I mean, I like some of it. The host segments are class, right. I like the deliberate cheesiness of the effects and props and all. But the main event isn't great. Like, I'm primarily here to watch them riff on a movie, and the riffing simply isn't very funny. To me.

My nephew's been watching Medabots, and I thought it was alright. I remember seeing it a long time ago too actually. It's basically Pokemon but with robots but with much less emphasis on collection. It's obviously pretty much just a kid's show, but the battles are still neat and it is funny at times. Medabee is a fun character, his lines are entertaining.

It tries to have mature themes sprinkled throughout, like this grieving widow who befriends a wandering Medabot, but...like, it's kinda absurd.

Uh, so, I binged like 5 episodes of the Tales of Zestiria/Berseria crossover anime ((more heavy on Zestiria so far which I'm super down for)) because I accidentally got really invested in Zestiria, oops.

It's about 6/10. Would probably be 7/10 if there weren't terribad CGI in every episode, a shame since the game's art direction is really good IMO and the anime sometimes captures that and sometimes very much doesn't. But at least the pacing is fine and it's doing a good job of introducing characters and concepts.

Sorey and Mikleo Are Gay/10

EDIT------

binged another 4 episodes lmao what is having a life

So, once it gets into the Berseria stuff the tone shift between the two stories is, uh, kind of awkwardly abrupt. Like, both stories are good, but I question the way they are currently going about mashing them together. I'm sure it'll all tie together in the end but I mean one of them is High Fantasy With Angst and the other is Dark Edgy And More Edge. The palettes are different, the character archetypes are different.... it was very jarring.

The story pacing is so far better than the game imo (at least for Zestiria which I have a frame of reference for) and they changed some story beats to avoid putting in gimmicky gameplay stuff/better dramatize other stuff, which I appreciate in a 100% narrative-focused medium. Mikleo and Sorey continue to be increasingly gay and I'm down for that, but also I just really like Zestiria's concept and setting which is so far adapted well.

CGI is still godawful. Also, the OP is cool I guess but it does not compare to the Zestiria game OP which is **** legendary. Overall rating remains about the same. I'm absolutely loving it but there is certainly a lot to critique here

EDIT EDIT---

So I woke up early before work to watch another episode this morning and yeah it's the gayest yet which is honestly saying something
Spoiler.
Lailah: "HURRY! DECLARE YOUR TRUE NAME TO SOREY!!"

Mikleo (sly grin, running forward dramatically): "He already..."

Sorey (stupid grin, turning around dramatically): "--I ALREADY KNOW IT!!!"

*dramatic anime fusion*
10/10 episode because we've been waiting for this since the heckin beginning and they FINALLY DELIVERED

I haven't watched any new anime series in almost six years. The last one I watched then was The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. So it's only right that the first new series I watch is The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. I just watched the first six episodes, and man, it's great to see the S.O.S. Brigade again.

I'm still waiting for Asakura to go axe-crazy though. I know this series is in an alternate timeline, but I just don't trust that girl.

This is forever emblazoned in my mind from The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya:

...gods below.

I've rewatched 'Over the Garden Wall' a couple times now, and it gives me the wild willies every time, man. That last episode in particular is an exercise in fear, and feels.

...the Beast kind of hits me unaware every time. It never stops being scary.

Episodes 10-13 of The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan are four of the most beautiful episodes of television ever.
