    No problem. Although now that I read the rest of your post, the anime doea actually have several interesting filler arcs. The ones I recommend actually watching though are the Zanapkuto Unknown Tales arc (which was iirc written by Kubo, thus technically canon) which offers a lot of insight on the Zanpakuto of several prominent characters, its sequel arc whose name escapes me, and the Reigai arc (whose proper name also escapes me, but it has fights between the Gotei 13 captains and thus is great).

    Blue Exorcist Volume 21:
    Spoiler:
    So one of the top people in the Knights of The True Cross is probably working with the Illuminatti, and the Order has been conducting human experiments of it's own for years to create bodies for the Demon Kings. Cloning and stuff like that. It's how Amaimon got his body, and Lucifer would have had one too, if Satan hadn't got it first. And that's how the Okumura brothers were born, their mother was involved with that. And Father Fujimoto was probably a clone body they wanted to make for Azazel, one of the Demon Kings. Who've been actually on the side humanity from the beginning with the others opposing it.

    The Demon Kings were like concepts in the beginning, but then they gained bodies from possession and they liked really having a physical form. So when their bodies started breaking down, Mephisto came up with the idea for the experiments in the first place. When Lucifer didn't get what he wanted, he made the Illuminatti.

    Suguro has been finding this out alongside Lightning, and Yukio, wanting to know the truth behind his and Rin's birth actually pointed his gun at him. Eventually Lightning showed Yukio the information and that made him lose enough faith in everything and everyone to try to shoot himself. That's when Satan appeared in his one eye.

    You know like a year ago, I saw there was a thing for Blue Exorcist on a news site, and there were comments saying things like "F Yukio" and "screw Yukio", and I was like, "What's wrong with these internet weirdoes?". I just thought they were dumb people online saying crap.

    I didn't know what he did. He basically singlehandedly made the world worse in a single night. He shot Rin in the head, broke the Koma Sword which made it's caused another mess, and before that, he shot Mephisto in the head and since he's the one who's suppressing the artificial Gehenna Gate, while he survived, the space around the Gate holding it off vanished and the world just changed. People are going to be seeing demons now when there were already increased sighting of them.


    After all that, he went to the Illuminatti, claiming that neither side was good, but that he like it, was evil and that he wants power now.
    The only reason he shot Mephisto was because he wouldn't talk to him. But then when Rin wants to know everything behind their birth, he's happy to answer.

    I just don't get it. How could things have turned out so bad? Like there's no way this is one of Mephisto's plots. He couldn't have wanted to get shot and let the Gate open.

    I can't believe Yukio did all of this, he's not that kind of person.

    So if you were waiting for my reaction to this, this is it.

    I wouldn't worry about Yukio for too long. This is basically his teenage angst finally boiling over after spending so long suppressing it and trying to act as a man twice his age. Things get better before they get much worse, and ultimately, it isn't Yukio's fault.


    Also, watched Edens Zero Season 1 on Netflix after having been a devoted reader for about 3 years, and I love it and can't wait for them to finally give us Season 2. Everybody's fairly well-cast, and Homura especially struck me as being well-cast since she sounds serious, yet also young and inexperienced, which matches her character quite well.

    I watched the Kimetsu No Yaiba movie last week. Though I wasn't on board with the idea of turning an arc from the manga into a movie, I liked it. I hope they make an original movie next.
    The fights were so good, but the last one was definitely the best. The music from the trailer when Akaza showed up played and the music during the fight itself was amazing. Seeing Rengoku use his techniques that I saw in the manga animated was so cool. The last one especially in the final clash was my favorite.

    The way it ended was pretty sad, but understandable considering what happens right after. That would be a very terrible way to end it. I just wish I saw it in theaters, stupid plague.

    Yugioh Vrains Episode 105-112:
    Spoiler:
    Ai's battle against humanity continues with defeating Gore, Roboppi beating Emma and the Shepard, defeating Varis' AI that he made to beat Ai, and finally defeating Akira and Blue Maiden getting the Soltech access key Akira had.


    Dark Templar, Wind Pegasus, Light Dragon, Fire Phoenix, Earth Golem, and Water Leviathan which was the last one revealed. All of those monsters are based on himself and the other Ignis. His deck is in memorial for his fallen friends, even the ones who fought against him. He says that even thought he helped Yusaku and the others in the war, it was wrong decision since it all it got was their loved ones saved, but his friends, his family deleted. Yusaku doesn't want to fight him, but at this rate, he's going to be forced to.


    Now Soulburner is dueling Roboppi, but I doubt he's going to lose.


    I'm watching Persona 5 the Animation too, I think it's pretty cool so far. I like the little things the anime has added like seeing Yusuke when he was younger.

    I dislike original movies. They're literally long fillers. And they pointlessly take staff and resources from the main show, making it worse. HeroAca's a good example. Hell, the goddamn movie means arcs are stretched and switched around (Training with Endeavor is after MVA in the manga) and now MVA doesn't have enough episodes. I still enjoy the show, but I wonder how it'd be if the filler movie ruining everything didn't exist and the anime was allowed to be more faithful

    While they may take time and staff away, I don't thing the actual plotting would be effected by a separate project. Especially not an adaptation where the plot is already laid out for you. You tend to only see plot slippages in things that are anime originals, like Wonder Egg or Evangelion.

    Bones probably switched the Endeavor arc around because it ends on a relatively quiet note, while I assume the MLA ends on a bombastic fight, and that's the better way to end a season compared to a man eating alone in an empty house.

    The thing is the new movie happens during Endeavor arc and thus they needed said arc earlier to give the needed context to anime watchers before it came out in japanese cinemas. Hell, there's even a filler episode with Ochacko and Tsuyu that only exists to connect said arc to the movie. Said episode itroduced some plot elements of the movie, including the villain at the very end. When now an arc is suffering from not enough episodes, it's hard to have positive thoughts about a movie that forces the show to have a filler episode that could've been used so MVA can be less rushed

    Finished Iruma-kun S2. Great movements in the plot, and lots of great development for the cast. New characters were fun too. Hype for S3

    I watched the second Digimon Tri movie, Determination, a few weeks ago.
    Spoiler:

    The movie starts with Ogremon who's become infected attacking Primary Village, and Leomon being his rival, he tries to stop him throughout the movie, as they dip in and out of the Digital World to the real world and back again. It was there that Ken showed up in a new Digimon Emperor outfit.

    He worked so hard to get himself out of that dark pit and become not just a better person, but the person meant to be in the first place. Only to end up being used by who or whatever is behind everything this time.
    Spoiler:



    While that's happening, the Digi-Destined plus Meiko and their Digimon decide to go to a spa to celabrate her joining their group.
    After that, at night, Ogremon appears again and the government tries to stop him, but they can't before Leomon takes him back to the Digital World.


    He then appears again, only for Meiko and Mimi to show up first. Mimi gets Palmon to Digivolve to Togemon instead of waiting for backup and a news helicopter got shot down in the middle of the fight. Afterwards, when they all meet up again, Izzy yelled at her for not waiting and she got mad and left.And to make things worse, the other students in her class didn't like her idea for the outfits in the festival, and it just brought her further down. Calling her a narcissist didn't help either, the nerve of them though.


    Meanwhile, Joe, who's been staying out of the action the whole time and Mimi actually meet up in the rain. There he asks why is it always them who have to fight? Why is always up to them to drop everything and save the world? Because they're the Digidestined? He thought they were done with that and he wants to have a normal life, which is totally understandable. Joe's always been more wary of danger, but here, he's just really tired of it all. He doesn't want to be selfish, but he wants his life to be his own


    It was after that that Mimi got the confidence to have Meiko and her wear the original costumes they designed for the festival. And Joe just pushed Gomamon further away, and he went to stay with the other Digimon.


    During the festival, Matt and Tai meet up in the hallway, and Matt asks Tai why Omnimon's Digivolution failed at the end of the first movie. He asks was it because Tai had doubts about it. I never thought that could even happen, but it does make sense. It's not something I like thinking about. It's just like before, Tai's just a lot more worried about the damage not just evil Digimon make, but theirs too.

    Near the end of the movie, Meicoomon gets taken away by Ken into this space in the Digital World. Patamon, Gomamon, and Leomon go into the portal, but no one else can after they do.

    The bad news is Joe's not there, so Gomamon can't digivolve, and the worst news is, Imperialdramon is waiting for them in that space. But he's colored different for some reason.


    The thing is, Joe forgot the most important thing, Gomamon and him are a team, they're supposed to be in this together. So when he finds out that Gomamon is in trouble, he rushes to see the fighting happening on Izzy's computer. There in that space again, both Gomamon and Palmon digivolve to Zudomon and Lilymon, but they somehow go a step further and Digivolved to Vikemon and Rosemon.


    All of this time, none of their Digimon besides Agumon and Gabumon were capable of going to the Mega level and they had to fulfill a prophecy to do it.


    "Those who crave true power must seek the darkness, but move past it.", has to be another one. And the first one came from Gennai, so he has to be involved somehow.


    With some help from Leomon, they beat Imperialdramon Fighter Mode and got Meicoomon back.


    And just whenever everything seems fine, Meicoomon destroys Leomon out of nowhere and Meiko's Digivice turns solid black with a red screen, something that's never happened before. Those infected Digimon wanted Meicoomon, and now that this happened, I don't know what to think now. And if that was the Imperialdramon that I know, why didn't they separate to Leafmon and Chibomon? Where are the rest of the 02 kids?


    I also saw the trailers to the 3rd movie, the one in English and the one in Japanese. The English just has a scene even if it's for a few seconds, that was hard to see. Patamon apparently becomes infected and it's just so sad. They were the babies of the original group, I think that's what makes it really get me.

    I liked it much as the first one, I hope the others are just as good.

    100% agree with this take. I was enraged when I first came across the switched arc release schedule because it fucks up the good order those arcs were in in the manga, and that only grew when the original filler episode was released as well as that one stinger. Still, it might not be a terrible thing that S5 ends with the MLA arc and then the LoV eating sushi preparing for war.

    My internet has been pretty wonky the last few days because of storms, so I've been watching stuff from my collection rather than new things. And people look at me like I'm crazy for getting physical copies of things when everything can be streamed nowadays. So Kekkai Sensen is still amazing. And you can pick out any episode at random aside from the last two of season 1 and need no context. While watching those episodes though I got to thinking about White and how much fun she is, and I got to wondering. How many filler only characters are there that are actually entertaining? Not just here, but in anime overall? The only one I can think of outside of White, is the tech daughter from the first Hero Aca movie.

    Does anyone have some recommendations for ghost-focused horror manga? I read through all of Mieruko-chan a few days ago and it's so good that I've been going through withdrawals while waiting for the next chapter.

    Was that supposed to be a horror? It has it's moments sure, but it always felt way more lighthearted.


    Otherside Picnic had it's fair share of creepy moments, though I only watched the anime earlier in the year. Not so much ghosts though as urban legends.

    Started watching Shaman King on Netflix, it seems okay, even if I think the art style is a bit weird.

    Also, just read the most recent chapter of Fire Force, and it just jumped straight into pro-eugenics nudist discourse. I am very disappointed and very angry. Now I'll just read to the end to critique it properly.

    I’ll defend Fire Fore because like with the Digimon Tamers cancel culture thing, most of the people complaining are hypocrites who’d celebrate it if the rant was about something they agree with like white men being bad or whatever
    This is what happens when moralist dumbasses calling artists pedos and sex offenders over lolis and fanservice in general are the loudest critics and get people suspended from Twitter, which is the main platform for lots of artitsts
    So I blame all the moralists crying sexism and causing shit like the cancellation of the Red Cross x Uzaki collab. They want stories like what FF is doing, just preaching their beliefs
    That’s the point of “all art is political” nonsense
