    Too that that Higurashi's mysterious goings-on aren't vampire-related. Ciel seems pretty useless right about now.

    Fire Force Season 2 Episode 13: So that's how Captain Burns and Joker know each other. They worked together and experienced a Adolla Link which made them each lose one eye. It's shame that they didn't fight like in the opening, but the information from the diary makes up for it. That guy in the White Clad that can change people's faces took the place of Raffles the First and founded the The Holy Temple of Sol for the Evangelist, he's not human. Yet, the people that run it now don't know about that. Lisa showed up again at the 8th, but she's not completely well. Oh, and the Evangelist has to have some connection to Haijima Industries, with those scientists and the person that runs the place talking about the bugs. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if the White Clad and the Evangelist had more people inside the Fire Force or the military in more high ranking positions. This has turned into a big conspiracy.

    Episode 5 of Kamisama ni Natta Hi has Yota being uncomfortable confessing his love, given that he believes that his methods to get to that point, with the so-called "underworld phone", are cheating. However, in Skyrim, there is literally a matchmaking quest where you get 2 people together by buying a poem written by a third-party bard and just changing the names around.
    Episode 6 of Kamisama ni Natta Hi: So-called lolicons who aren't into the old-timey speech? What is this blasphemy?

    Digimon Adventure Episode 25: Considering this week's episode of Pokémon as well, this episode was likely meant to be the start of the Winter Season had Covid not screwed up the schedule. But whatever the case, it was nice to have a "breather" episode after the gigantic climax of DoneDevimon. Nice to see the Leomon crew reunite with the heroes, hopefully that'll last for a while. I did chuckle at the whole Mamemon situation (sadly no MetalMamemon) and seeing them pop like balloons at the end was darkly humorous. Interesting that Hikari is with the B-Team again, wonder if that'll play into anything...

    I'm actually surprised he shows up here. I'd have expected them to either have him show up at the start pulling a L and stalking Moriatry everywhere and implying that he knows, or they'd leave him for the finale, like the last scene of episode 11 and then have him be the main roadblock for the 12.

    Speaking of pretty boy criminals, they're definitely planning Jack the Ripper, right?

    Holy shit. Dr Giovanni is now Zouken. Disgusting motherfucker. Also, love Arthur getting him with a powerup based on "no thoughts:head empty" that he tries to spin as some kind of super enlightened state.

    I never quite understood whether the adventurers in Danmachi were just mercenaries and whether they can serve as actual law enforcement. If the former, that makes things easier. After all, Elder Scrolls taught me that there is much pleasure in killing people after you verbally provoke them to attack you first, so that you don't get charged with murder.

    I mean, that is how those types of enlightenment powers tend to work in anime, so maybe Ohkubo was parodying that and the real concept of zen.

    Practically speaking, Ganesha Familia is the primary lawkeeping familia, with Loki and Freya stepping in for heavier hitters at the Guild's request.

    Digimon Adventure Episode 26: The gang is finally all together, all eight of them at last. Nice to see the B-Plot from the last couple of episodes wasn't just a distraction and will tie into the next arc. Sad to see my favourite water Digimon - Ebidramon show up just to be a complete jobber against Seadramon. The arrial of Hikari has me interested in how that'll affect Taichi's character since now his little sister will be in constant danger. :O

    That preview for the next episode though...

    I was really praising Jujutsu's comedy at the start, saying it was good to have a shounen that can actually make me laugh, but these last episodes are making me regret it.

    If every new character is going to be this insufferable, I'd rather he just stopped introducing them. This new kid is marginally interesting, but the other two from last episode and the glasses guy are just awful.

    I get not liking Todo (personally I thought his abrupt "what's your taste in women?" followed by ripping his shirt off moment was hilarious, but he definitely fits the "loud obnoxious meathead" archetype which is always an acquired taste), but Nanami? Not only is he a badass dignified older man who doesn't get slotted into the eccentric/pervy mentor figure role, but his "adulthood is the accumulation of small despairs" speech was so good. I'm surprised he'd land on your list of least favorite characters. Then again I guess this sort of thing is always subjective...

    I can't believe you'd slander Nanamin in this fashion.

    He's certainly not as bad as the two students, and the speech was cool, but his scene with Gojou is painfully unfunny and he follows up the speech with like 5 dull minutes of him evading fodder while explaining his power in detail.

    Besides, as cool as the speech was, it doesn't really add much to the scene or his character. They could've saved it for some scene about how adults create more curses or some horde of really minor curses or something like that.
